Meet Deryn

“I'm a girl."
When Deryn opened her eyes, the lady boffin was staring at her with no change of expression.
"Indeed," she said.

Welcome Deryn! Deryn is an 11-month-old yellow beauty currently weighing in at just 33 pounds. Because she’s so young, she’ll likely get bigger yet - likely to around 40 pounds (give or take). She needs a home with another dog because, as you'll see, she does best when she's got a canine friend around!

Deryn is crate-trained and housebroken! Since Deryn has moved in with another dog, she has learned those skills very quickly, and she’s been learning new tricks on top of that! Deryn can now respond to “sit,” “down,” “off,” and she is working on learning to “roll over.” Deryn will go into her crate for food, but she’d much rather hang out in the open with her human and dog pals! Who can blame her?

Deryn, or “Little Bit” as foster mom calls her because she’s half the size of her favorite playmate, lives with other dogs in her foster home and is doing great with them! She was a tad shy with larger male dogs when she first met them, but once the initial bashfulness wore off, she was as good as gold and happy to play! Deryn is a much happier dog now that she has a foster sibling, so she needs a family who has another dog so she won’t feel so lonely when her humans aren’t home.

She can be a bit timid when meeting new people, especially men. But once the newness wears off, she is happy to be around her new friends! She can be a bit needy and will tell you when she wants to snuggle (this girl likes to cuddle) but gives others space when they want it. Deryn has a pretty fierce snore when she’s snoozing, but once she gets up, she’s ready to get back to playing. Her most recent interests include ice cubes and carrots, so it doesn’t take too much to make her happy!

As far as energy goes, Deryn seems pretty laid back. She’s been getting daily walks, and her foster mom is happy to report that she does well on her leash!

Does Deryn’s description have you falling in love and ready to add another dog to your family? Contact us today!

If you’d like to be considered to adopt, the first step in the process is to submit an application through our website: Our adoption fee is $250.

We typically adopt to homes within 30 minutes of Athens, GA, as we require a basic home check to ensure all dogs are placed in a safe environment. If you are further away than that and are interested in one of our pups, please still fill out an application and we can discuss your options.

We do not have a facility and operate through a network of foster homes. Thus, we do not have a phone number. If you’d like to discuss potential adoptions, please email at
