At Fantana, we feel that every dog is a gift and all deserve a second chance. So when we learn of a homeless dog, we gladly work to find a new forever home and give them the hope that they are looking for and all the love that they need.

But we can’t keep them all, so we are asking you to open your heart and consider one of these precious pups.

Each dog has been vet checked and all shots have been given. Please call us anytime at: 770-786-5200.

He loves attention and loves to play ball and just run. He is about 1 year and a half old, neutered, UTD on all vaccines, started on Heartworm preventative and microchipped. 

He has lived outside most of his life in a small pen so he will need to learn some house manners but he has yet to have an accident in his run here at the kennel and holds it for 12 hours at night.

Micah took one look at Diesel’s 18 pic photo spread on Facebook and fell in love. He told me the up one ear and down the other was what really sold him. Then, they finally met. Micah told me then that he loved EVERYTHING about him not just the ears. And Diesel was sold immediately as well.

Micah loves to jog. camp and hike. And he just wanted a buddy to do those things with. Now when I think of Diesel, I picture him doing all those things with his new best friend. A total match made in heaven!!


This beautiful Blue Boy was dumped on Hwy 81. Probably discarded because he was very sick and needed medical attention. What a shameful start for an eight month old! But we rescued him, rushed him to a great vet, and gave him everything he needed to succeed. He’s 100% now, 1 year old, microchipped, neutered, heartworm tested negative, and up to date on all vaccines and heartworm preventative. He’s learned tricks, heels perfectly, and is housebroken. Good with kids. Now this 50# guy just needs his forever home.

After a long search, Chance has found his PERFECT HOME. He is spoiled with plenty of lazy days with no agenda and lots of hugs and kisses. Also, he is the only pet so he doesn’t have to share ANYTHING! What more could he ever want????


Found on a busy road in Covington- lost. Cute, energetic, very sweet, 40 pound Boxer mix with beautiful eyes. All vaccinations and heartworm negative, spayed and microchipped. Very much the puppy (around 1 year old), LOVES other dogs and water, and just now learning basic commands. She seems to be a quick learner.

After being separated at birth, Bizzy has been reunited with her twin. The family who adopted Puck as a puppy found our listing for Bizzy and had to have her. Puck and Bizzy now enjoy exploring the woods together, trips to the dog park, and hanging with their friends!


Grayce is a 2 year old purebred English Setter. She was found wandering on a wooded dirt road outside of Monticello. She was covered in ticks, skin and bones, and 5 weeks pregnant.

She is heartworm negative, UTD on all shots, housetrained, and good with cats, dogs, and children.

Rocky has joined us here at Fantana due to the horrible economy. His daddy just couldn’t provide as much as he felt Rocky deserved so, he decided to find him that perfect home where he could be spoiled rotten the rest of his life. Rocky is a 7 year old male neutered purebred Boxer. He has natural ears and a natural tail for lots of wagging! He is super sweet and just loves to have all the attention he can get. He is housebroken, great with dogs, cats, and children. He has been microchipped and is current on all vaccines. He comes when he’s called, sits, and is learning to shake…pretty much PERFECT! Small re-homing fee.

January 2011- Rocky is just what 4 legged sister Maggie was looking for- a best friend! He is thoroughly enjoying his couch, sisters, and love love love from mom and dad- He couldn’t be happier!


It only took one look, and this Pointer stole my heart and changed my world. Beautiful Amigo was found homeless, skinny and badly undernourished in an industrial park. He has been heartworm tested negative, been given all shots, and neutered. He is great with other dogs, very sweet, and loves people. Housebroken. Microchipped. Amigo is looking for a special person who will embrace his maturity (he is 10+ years old) and is patient (he can’t hear- possibly deaf at birth). Very mobile with no arthritis or joint problems and healthy.

After almost a year of fostering, Sally finally “caved” and told Amigo that he is now hers. Both are extremely happy and are enjoying the perfect fit.

Picture Unavailable…

Marley is a petite 8-month-old. She is affectionate, obedient and knows many commands. She gets along very, very well with other dogs, is not intimidated by them nor dominating of them. A home with another dog would probably be best for Marley. She is really loving and smart and responds well to training.
We are still unsure of how she is with cats. Marley is up to date on vaccinations and she has been spayed. She is calm in the house and easy to live with. She is microchip as well.

Email Jesse Adams at if you are interested in meeting Marley

Marley, went to a great home in Rome GA with another doberman as a companion and play mate. The man owns his own business and Marley goes to work with him each day. Adopted January 2009
