LILLY B - Female - 2 Years - Boxer Mix

​Meet Lilly B., or Lilly for short. Lilly is a two year old boxer mix with the sweetest face! She's a perfect size at 50 lbs. Lilly is sweet and LOVES to be loved on!! She has the cutest boxer wiggle, and does the "boxer walk" - walking with a wiggle - when she is excited to see you!

While we are certain that she could live quite successfully in a home with another dog, and even possibly a cat, she is not fond of dogs who rush into her space. She adores children, and is definately gentle enough to be a great child's companion. Want a serious love bug in your house??? Look no further - come meet our sweet Lilly B!

SIR CHARLES -  Male - 2 Years

Meet Sir Charles!! Sir Charles is a happy, resilient and just fantastic boy. This boy is a lover, not a fighter, and that made us love him even more!! He's confident, courageous, a social butterfly and possibly the sweetest bully you will ever meet. Sir Charles is a true gentleman, he is very attentive to his handlers, quite "healing" to them and is very affectionate and loving to the guys. They all agree that he would make an awesome Therapy Dog.

Sir Charles is a short guy (please don't tell him that!), brawny and muscular. He's about two years old, and a solid 60 pounds. He loves absolutely everyone he meets, and adores giving kisses. We don't know how he is with cats (we can test him if you have one!), but he loves other dogs, all people, and would be fantastic with children. Come meet Sir Charles - you will fall in love!


MARVEL -  Female - 2 Years - Terrier Mix

Meet Miss Marvel! Her name makes you think of a superhero, and we think she is a bit of one! When we met her, and pulled her out to test her, we found her face to be so very intriguing that we couldn't quit looking at her! Marvel is a two year old terrier mix, medium sized and weighing in at 47 pounds.

Marvel is aptly named.....she has 2 very different sides to her personality: Marvel is playful and energetic and yet, very focused and intentional when given one on one playtime. This girl is a real sweet heart, loves anything that squeaks and is so laid back and easy going. She loves her people and watches your every move with eager anticipation. Marvel is good with other dogs and will make a great addition to any family dynamic.

After filling out the application, please submit it online, or print, scan it and email to: adopt@caninecellmates.org. As soon as we have received your application, a member of our Adoption Coordination team will be in touch with you. If you do not get a response within 24 hours, please reach out to us - a technical error may have occurred, and we may not have received your application. Next, we would like for you to attend one of our meet n' greets to meet your potential new pup face to face (dates and times will be announced on our Events page). Lastly, we will conduct a home visit and introduction to your family (both human and non-human). The adoption fee for Canine CellMates dogs is $275 - our dogs are fully vetted, microchipped, spayed or neutered,

on heartworm preventative and trained.                         


Canine CellMates dogs are selected from Fulton County Animal Control, a high intake county shelter. Each dog chosen for the program undergoes extensive temperament testing to determine their suitability for our program. Under the supervision of Jeanette Holloway and training assistants, the dogs and their handlers spend nine weeks learning basic obedience, and graduate from the program by passing an obedience test similar to the AKC's CGC test.

Canine CellMates dogs are available for adoption immediately and will be able to go to their forever homes after graduation. We carefully screen all adoption applications to ensure the right match between dog and person.  Canine CellMates graduates are fully vaccinated, micro chipped, spayed or neutered and are on monthly heartworm prevention.



CHICO -  Male - 5 Years - Cattle Dog/Pit Mix

Meet Chico!!  He is an engaging guy, with a cute and playful personality. Chico is also a chill dog, really easy going. He rolls with the punches whatever is offered, he's happy to just be a part of it. Mellow, cool, even-keeled, Chico has a tough looking exterior with a big marshmallow heart.

Chico is a 5 year old Cattle dog/ Pit mix. He's a very easy to manage 42 pounds. What we thought was greying on his muzzle we know belive to be coloring that comes from the cattle dog in him. If you want a loyal dog, happy to be with you wherever you go, that is done with puppy silliness, but still has plenty of play in him, then this sweet and engaging boy might just be for you! We're sure when you meet him, you will love him too!

LEAH - Female - 2 years - Hound Mix

​Meet Leah, a tall, leggy girl with definite hound in her. She's about two years old, and clearly had a litter of puppies before coming to the shelter. Leah is graceful, and elegant . . . with a touch of kangaroo! She LOVES to play with balls of any sort. She has some Kangaroo qualities when she lets loose and plays, she will literally "bounce" for almost anything!

This girl is just sweet, plain and simple....she LOVES affection in any way, shape or form. Leah is a hound and very "nose-driven", but just wants your love and attention......her world is good as long as you are happy. Leah is gentle enough to be with children, and is great with other dogs. She's a medium sized girl, weighing in right at 50 pounds.Please come meet her and fall in love!
