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: 2015Our 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: 2016Jessie 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
Large
Born: January 2015Things 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 2015I 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.photo: James Salvatore
RALPHIE / HALF FACE
Male
Medium
Born: August 2014For 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 2016Hugo 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.
GRACE
Female

It has taken a long time to nurture her back to health from that desperate situation.
Very nice with people, smart and energetic. .
She is sterilized and vaccinated.
DORA

MAMA
Female
Large-Medium
Born: 2009I 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: 2017Lady 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.
ROI
Male
Small-Medium
Born: 2018Roi 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.
Roi cannot go back to the street, so he is looking for a forever family.
He is a gentle, kind and polite boy; very affectionate with humans and gets on well with other dogs.
LILY
Female
Small-medium
Born: 2011I 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
Large
Born: 2011I 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.
MZEFemale
Large-Medium
Born: 2017Mze was rescued and taken care of by long time DOG supporters, Juliet and Bob de Boer, from Mtskheta.
Mze is a high energy dog, loves the outdoors, loves going on adventures, bringing her happy energy to every activity she is involved in.
She is very smart, easy to train.
She can get dominant with other assertive female dogs, but in the shelter she gets on well with most of her group mates, so she could be a second dog with a friendly, confident male dog.
She definitely needs an active family.
IRENE
Female
Large
Born: 2016 NovemberIrene is the embodiment of affection.
She loves giving the paw, pressing her nose into your hands as you walk by, asking you to stop and give her love and attention.
And who could resist!
She is mellow and sweet, gets on well with everyone and has infinite resources of love!

GUS
Male
Large
Born: 2016 MayGus 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.More photos:

BLACKIEMale
Large-Medium
Born: April 2016Blackie 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.More photos:

HEIDI
Female
Small
Born: September 2019This lovely, gentle, friendly young girl is looking for a family. She is small sized, and calm, so we can recommend her to living in an apartment as well. She is sweet, curios, adores people and does not understand why she ended up on the streets.More photos: https://www.facebook.com/pg/dogorggeo/photos/?tab=album&album_id=4522461104446660
BERNIEFemale
Medium
Born: May 2019Bernie 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.
BLUEMale
Medium
Born: February 2019This stunning husky mix is full of spunk, tail wags, and tons of energy just waiting to be put to good use in a new home! For being just a year and a half old, he's been through quite a lot. He was nursed back to health by his rescuer, Annaleis after he was found with severe infected wounds on his chest and face. After several weeks of treatment, he had a potential adopter who'd changed their mind even after he completed training courtesy of Annaleis. He is now trained, fully sterilized/vaccinated, and waiting for his forever home!
BOTEMale
Large
Born: 2017Look at this beauty!
Bote was living in the street with his pal, Loma, but due to their size they had to be moved as they were being threatened.
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 very nicely. He can be a bit bossy with other dogs as he likes to be the first one to receive the love of our volunteers.
Please contact us if you would like to meet Bote and to give him the forever home he deserves!
LOMAMale
Large
Born: 2017Loma 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.
CHAMPMale
Medium
Born: June 2019Champ was rescued by a DOG volunteer. He was weak and as a result of not receiving enough nutrition during his first few weeks, his legs had to be in a cast to correct the deformity they had at that very young age already.
However, he quickly recovered and has grown into a super friendly, enthusiastic young teenager.
He is very motivated to work and learn, eager to please his humans and has great patience with children.
LUPAFemale
Medium (might be large when fully grown)
Born: October 2019Lupa 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?

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.

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.

He is looking for his forever home, to receive all the love he deserves. Who is willing to open his/her heart for Greg Jr?
FLUFFMale
Small
Born: April 2019Fluff was found by tourists last September in the middle of a field, far from everything, alone. They did not want to leave him to his fate, so he was placed into a box and travelled on their bicycle all the way to Tbilisi, to us, like that.
He was initially very shy, not having been socialized with anyone previously. However, love
and care quickly made him one of the funniest and friendliest dogs at the shelter.
He has been previously fostered so he is used to living in a flat, in a city. His foster mum was so happy with his evolution.
He will remain this size. Although don’t be fooled by his small size, he is full of character and fun!
NATALIEFemale
Small-Medium
Born:  August 2019Our sweet sweet Natalie is ready to have a home on her own!
Natalie was rescued as a small puppy from the streets. She was fostered for a few weeks but her rescuer couldn’t keep her any longer, so she joined our residents.
She has always been a calm puppy, very sweet with people and children. But she also requires regular exercise. Although she is small, she is strong and she needs to burn all the energy.
She also gets along with other dogs very well.
If you have an active lifestyle and would like to have a dog that will become your sports pal, please consider adopting Natalie!
