Dogs for Adoption

We have dogs of all ages, shapes, and sizes at the D.O.G. shelter. All our dogs are vet-checked, fully vaccinated, and sterilized – male and female (to prevent unwanted puppies). Every single one is looking for its forever home and someone to love and call their own.

Please contact us if you are interested in meeting the dogs and starting the adoption process.

If you have decided to adopt one or more of our dogs, please fill out the application form.

MANDU
Male
Small
Born: 2015

Our mischievous Mandu is looking for a home now!

He arrived with a broken jaw and severely traumatized. He was fearful of everyone to the point of not even allowing us to take him out of his transport box for days after his arrival.
Thankfully that is all in the past now, with a lot of love, care and socialization he has transformed into one of the liveliest and funniest characters of the shelter. 
He loves children and is always very enthusiastic about going for a walk with them when our regular school classes visit us. 
This love is certainly mutual as he is always one of the first ones to be requested by the children.

He walks nicely on the leash and he has no problems with eating anymore, the only thing missing from his life is a loving family!
JESSIE
Female
Medium-Large
Born: 2016

Jessie arrived at the shelter as part of our TVNR programme, sponsored by Mayhew International. However, upon her arrival it was discovered that she had a serious leg injury that required a complicated operation and an almost 3 month rehabilitation. 
As she will be at risk of again being hit by a car in the area where she had been staying previously, we would really like to see her living in a home. 
She is very friendly with everyone and gets on well with other dogs. 
She is very playful but not too energetic and has always been careful around small children. 
We would like to thank Orsolya Sárossy and her lovely mum for all the help and care they have given to Jessie.
THOR 
Male

Born: January 2015

Things were looking good for me – I was rescued as part of a litter of puppies in the spring of 2015 and later adopted by a lovely family.  However, a serious illness meant that the family was no longer able to care for a young puppy, so unfortunately I was returned to D.O.G.  
I have grown into a happy strong and clever boy and love to run. I get on well with other dogs and children and while I am happy at the shelter, I miss family life as I have lots of love to give. Please consider opening up your heart and home to me.
PICOLO 
Male 
Small 
Born: February 2015

I was afraid one summer that I was going to die -  my body hurt so much from being repeatedly kicked and beaten. I was so grateful when a person in my neighbourhood called D.O.G. and they came to help. 
I was taken to a clinic, where they said I had a bad skin condition. A D.O.G. volunteer took me home and lovingly treated and cared for me for several weeks. I am now fully recovered and enjoy playing with my doggy pals in the shelter; I have also learned to trust the good people who visit, but I would love to be in a proper home – I am very affectionate, playful and good with children.

RALPHIE / HALF FACE
Male
Medium
Born: August 2014

For a long time I was living the relatively good life of a TVNR dog near the US Embassy, where I was fed, loved and taken care of by the Embassy staff. Unfortunately, as I am very kind and gentle, I was an easy target for more dominant dogs, some of which started to bully me. I came to the shelter where I can be safe and would not have to fight for food. 
I love humans, always wag my tail happily when I see them and have a positive and cheerful character that makes everyone feel good and smile around me. 
I get on well with other dogs, as long as they are not too dominant. 
People say I am really special because half of my face is brown and the other half is white, so sometimes they call me Half-Face.
HUGO / ჰუგო
Male
Large-Medium
Born: March 2016

Hugo was found in June near Lanchkhuti. 
He was extremely thin and very weak. A dog lover brought him to our shelter after contacting us and discussing the situation with us. 
Despite all the health problems he had and the seriousness of his condition, Hugo was a loving and happy boy from the start. 
He is very vocal, he is not a barker, more of a professional communicator - he loves to greet people with a happy howling sound, and his vocal range to express his feelings is truly amazing. 
He is a very positive dog, gives a huge smile to everyone who comes to the shelter, behaves nicely when walking. 
He certainly loves his food now after all the starving, so with treats he can be super easily trained. 
He has been neutered and fully vaccinated. 
He would be ideal in a home with a garden, but he really needs human company. He loves children and gets on well with other dogs.

ჰუგო ივნისშია ნაპოვნი ლანჩხუთში.ძალიან ძალიან გამხდარი და დასუსტებული იყო. საბედნიეროდ ცხოველების მოყვარულ ადამიანმა იპოვა, და ჩვენ დაგვიკავშირდა. მიუხედავად იმისა რომ ჯანმრთელობის ძალიან სერიოზული პრობლემები ქონდა, ჰუგო მაინც ძალიან მოსიყვარულე და მხიარული იყო. ყეფით არ ყეფს ხოლმე, მხოლოდ ხალხთან კომინიკაციის თავისი მეთოდი აქვს, როცა უნდა ვინმეს მიესამლოს, ან რამის "თქმას" ცდილობს "ყმუის" თითქოს ლაპარაკობს, ძალიან საყვარელია და რაღაც საოცარი ძაღლია. ძალიან პოზიტიურია, გა,ორიცხულია კარგ ხასიათზე არ დააყენოს ადამიანი, და სეირნობის დროს ძალიან კარგად იქცევა. ძალიან უყვარს საჭმლი, რაც ბუნებრივია, იმის მერე რა შიმშილობაც გამოიარა.. ამიტომ პატრონი ძალიან მარტივად გაწვრთნის საჭმლის დახმარებით.  ჰუგო სრულად აცრილი და კასტრირებულია. იდეალური ცუგა იქნება ეზოან სახლში, მაგრამ ადამიანების გარეშე გაძლება უჭირს. ძალიან კარგად უგებს ბავშვებს და სხვა ძაღლებსაც.

MAMA
Female    
Large-Medium
Born: 2009

I have lived at the shelter since it first opened and live quite happily as an ‘outside dog’. I am generally quite calm, get on well with most of the other dogs, but am a bit nervous with new people, though I do like it when they give me a treat.
LADY
Female
Large
Born: 2017

Lady was a DOG tagged dog living on the streets relatively safely and happily, however, residents of her area felt intimidated by her size and asked the municipality to relocate her. 
Lady is a large, but a very calm and loving dog. 
She is not too active - while she loves wandering around he shelter area, she likes just lying down and relaxing as well, so could possibly feel good in a flat as well, if given daily walks. 
She has an elegant, irish greyhound type of walk and character.
LILY   
Female
Small-medium 
Born: 2011

I arrived at the shelter as a very small puppy and have not yet found a home. I am alright in the shelter but am a bit nervous. The shelter is all I have ever known, so I need a home with patient people willing to spend time showing me how to behave – but I am quick to learn and have lots of love to give in return.
MAX
Male

Born: 2011

I was left at the shelter a few years ago by people who no longer wanted me. I am a gentle, calm and laid-back friendly guy, quite happy to meander the fields around the shelter, although I love to be around people.
RIDGIK
Male
Small
Born: 2013 November
Has epilepsy, but under control. Last seizure: May 2020

This funny Corgi like boy has a very sweet, easygoing character. He gets on well with everyone, dogs or humans alike.

We would like to show Ridgik that he will be loved again!

Bernie and her sister, Alfie, were found in a parking lot of an apartment building by Julia, a dog lover who made friends with the mother dog and would visit the whole litter regularly. A month and a half later Alfie and Bernie were the only two pups left and in order to save their lives Julia took them home.
As Julia had to fly back to the US (she also transported two dogs from us to Toronto on her way), she had to leave Alfie and Bernie with us.
They settled into the shelter routine quite fast, they were friendly with everyone and got on well with all other dogs. They were loved by our regular volunteers as they both are easy going, trouble free dogs.
Alfie got adopted recently, leaving her twin sister alone in the shelter, so we are hoping that she will not have to feel lonely for long and will find a home very very soon.
LOMA

Male
Large
Born: 2017

Loma was living in the street with his pal, Bote, but due to their large size they had to be moved from the area as locals were scared of them and threatened the dogs.
Loma can be a serious guy sometimes, although as you can see in the photo, he can be all goofy and cute!
He became the boss of his group as soon as he arrived, and now spends his days with napping in the shadow.
He loves going outside for walks with our volunteers and behaves very well on the leash. He will be a perfect dog for someone with a garden or big territory.
LUPA

Female
Medium (might be large when fully grown)
Born: October 2019

Lupa arrived at the shelter from Mtskheta where their mom and dad lived on the streets, taken care of by an animal lover. 
The area where they were did not have more resources for street dogs, so, in order for their mum and dad to remain safely there, we had to bring in the pups. 
There were 6 puppies in total. Luckily, some have already been adopted but Lupa, Tala, Suki and Greg Jr are still looking for their forever home.
Lupa and Tala are the most outgoing of them all. Lupa loves playing with other dogs. She loves people and children, and walks very well on the leash. 
Who would like to give Lupa a family and home to call her own?
TALA

Female
Medium (might be large when fully grown)
Born: October 2019

Tala arrived at the shelter from Mtskheta where their mom and dad lived on the streets, taken care of by an animal lover.

There were 6 puppies in total. Luckily, some have already been adopted but Lupa, Tala, Suki and Greg Jr are still looking for their forever home.
Lupa and Tala are the most outgoing of them all. As her siblings, Tala can be a bit shy at the beginning but she completely overcomes her shyness after a few minutes of walking with our volunteers. She is so playful! She gets along with other dogs easily and loves to play with everyone. 
If you are looking for a goofy and playful puppy, Tala is your best choice!
SUKI

Female
Medium (might be large when fully grown)
Born: October 2019

Suki arrived at the shelter from Mtskheta where their mom and dad lived on the streets, taken care of by an animal lover. 
The area where they were did not have more resources for street dogs, so, in order for their mum and dad to remain safely there, we had to bring in the pups. 
There were 6 puppies in total. Luckily, some have already been adopted but Lupa, Tala, Suki and Greg Jr are still looking for their forever home.
Suki is the shyest of them all. She is a bit careful when approaching someone and requires a bit of time to get used to your company. But once she does, she is a sweetheart! She will need a family that will be patient with her and that will show her a lot of love. As her siblings, she is very good around other dogs.
DO'
Male
Large-Medium
Born: March 2019

Happy and Do' (Dopey for us 🐶) arrived as part of a large family, together with all their siblings. 
Only the two of them are still with us, waiting for their forever families. 
They are very sweet, laidback dogs, never causing any trouble, they just get on with everything that we ask them, fit into any group. Always happy to meet people,  they adore walks but are not over energetic. 
They love treats,  are easy train, listen well to their names.

BOTE

Male
Large
Born: 2017

Bote was living in the street with his pal, Loma, they had to be moved into the shelter as they were being threatened by residents, who found them intimidating due to their large sizes. 
Bote is a big guy full of love to give to everyone. He is very good with people and walks very nicely on the leash. He is a strong, independent character, very confident. He loves long strolls, and dislikes grooming. 
We do not recommend him for families with small children as he does not tolerate pulling-pushing and being grabbed. He is ideal to someone with an active lifestyle or a big yard, who wants a hilarious, very affectionate and loving friend who can hop into a car and hike for hours on every weekend.

BLACKIE

Male
Large-Medium
Born: April 2016

Blackie was living close to Delisi metro. He knew his way around the area, had his regular routine and loved visiting a nearby training center where he was adored and cared for.
However, the municipality decided to remove him from the area and for his safety he was eventually brought to us.
This lovely dog craves human companion, would do anything for a cuddle, so we are desperate to find him a family where he could have all the care he deserves and could give unconditional love to his people.

Male
Medium
Born: June 2019

Champ had a rough start in life, and by the time he was found by his "fairy godmother" near the Military Highway, this difficult start had already taken its toll on his little body. He probably had never walked much at all, so his legs were deformed. He was oversensitive to bright lights (most likely had been kept in the dark), had long nails like a cat’s claws; and rickets from lack of sunlight or nutrients. He has had vitamin injections, braces on his leg so they would develop well and received lots of love and care from his various foster carers during the past year.
However, he now needs a home, and he needs it very much!
He is young, friendly, is always happy with a wonderfully loyal and loving character. He has energy to be an active buddy in all sorts of adventures, but also loves just cuddling on a sofa!

Dzazi

Female
Born: March-April 2020
This super cute young dog and her 7 siblings were taken away from their mum and dumped at an empty plot of land at only one month of age. Being too young to fend for themselves this was an almost definite death sentence for them, but still they were very fortunate to end up there, as the location where they were abandoned was right next to where our volunteers, Jenny and Tim live. They rescued these little precious ones and we immediately reached out to our wonderful DOG family to search for foster homes.
Although the pups were all malnourished, ridden with internal and external parasites, they quickly started getting stronger as soon as they moved to foster homes and were given good nutrients and excellent care by their foster families.

Only Dzazi is still searching for a home. She is an energetic, confident dog. She is eager to learn and is always up for adventure and mischief.

Flapper, who arrived at the shelter after being badly attacked by other dogs in his area, is one of our most laidback residents. Truly a dog of many faces, he can be goofy, affectionate and calm at any given time! It didn’t take long for him to become the favourite of visitors and now he enjoys napping in the shade and walks from our volunteers. He’s also great on the leash and is very friendly with other dogs.

GUS
Male
Large
Born: 2016 May

Gus was living in Rustavi, and was taken care of by the US Marines there. They reached out to us, asking us to place Gus at our shelter until they could find a home for him in the States, but unfortunately that never happened. He has been let down by many people, but he is still incredibly loving and trusting with everyone! He is not good with other, smaller males, but he gets on well with females of his size. He is very energetic, needs someone who loves sports, who exercises him regularly, with an active lifestyle - he loves jogging, hiking but he will be a loyal and fun partner in any other sports.

GUSTAV
Male
Small-Medium
Born: September 2020

Gustav has the confidence of a stockbroker, the stamina of a horse and love that is enough for an entire country.
Gustav never understands why he should be anywhere else than his human friends,  and why would someone desire to go to the bathroom without him.
He also does not think that the Earth revolves around the Sun,  as he knows the Earth and all of its people revolve around him. Naturally. 
And all of this somehow make Gustav the most loveable puppy - his goofy face, his contagious happiness and positive vibe make everyone smile as soon as they enter our building.

Libby arrived at us as a young mum. She is a very curious, friendly and playful dog. 
She greets everyone with lots of tail wagging and smiles, ready to engage, learn, play immediately. 
She is a small sized dog, ideal for an apartment. While she is fun and energetic, she does not have the drive to work continuously, so she can adjust to a more relaxed lifestyle as well, as long as she gets affection and love.

PITNA
Female
Small-Medium size
Born: July 2020

Rosie and Pitna were born in a holiday village outside of Tbilisi, to a stray dog. Fortunately for them, a dog loving household - Sandro and his lovely family - were caring for this little dog family while they stayed in the village suring the summer. When Snadro moved back to Tbilisi, we accepted the puppies in the shelter as it was obvious they were too small and the village did not have enough resources for the them to survive.
Rosie and Pitna have been growing up as inseparable twins ever since, until Rosie had the chance to leave to the US to a partner organization. 
Pitna is initially a little shy with people, but that soon disappears and then she is all about cuddles. She is a very easygoing dog, never a bad thought, gets on well with every other dog, people, even our cats.

REBEL
Female

Born: June 2020

Rebel's mum, a street dog, turned up at the home of a dog loving person when she was already heavily pregnant. Rebel was the last one of the litter, the only one that was not adopted, so the lovely Chandra have been fostering Rebel since July 2020, but as they could not foster her any longer, Rebel had to move to us.
As she has grown up in a family, she is a dog that is "ready" - she is crate trained, housetrained, knows basic commands, affectionate, well-socialized, very playful.

Roi has had multiple fractures in his hind leg.
He was cared for and nurtured back to health by a wonderful dog loving couple, but they could not keep him any longer after the recovery.

VANILLA
Female
Large-Medium
Born: March 2021

This gorgeous creamy-dreamy youngster arrived with a seriously deformed/injured front leg. As she has suffered from Ehrlichia, the originally planned surgery to correct her bone had to be cancelled. While some deformity remained on her front leg, this does not disturb her in anyhing - she has all the energy of any healthy pup, she loves playing, she adores being in the company of people or fellow dogs.

MURMAN

Male
Small-Medium
Born: June 2020

Murman was rescued by himself, when he joined one of our volunteers on their walk, returned with them home and decided he was safe so he would stay. 

He has a back leg injury which occasionally makes him hop rather than walk so he looks like a small antelope. 

Other than that and his incredibly sweet disposition, unfortunately Murman has nothing remarkable about him that would make people to stop and want to adopt him. 
We know he is the best boy, he gets on well with others, adores humans and is very affectionate, but it is difficult to convince people when they search for a cute pup or a noble looking big dog, that Murman really is a perfect dog that they should be happy to have. 
However, we are still hopeful that someone will come and fall in love with his silly walk, kind eyes, always positive and loyal character.
