Dogs found in Lowndes cemetery need a home

BROOKS CO., GA (WALB) - The Lowndes County Humane Society was looking Friday for a permanent home for two dogs recently rescued after being found in a cemetery.

But, there was a catch...the dogs needed to be adopted together. Mazy, a female bulldog mix, and Brairly, a male chocolate lab, had been living with a foster family in Brooks County since someone messaged the Lowndes County Humane Society on their Facebook page about a month ago, saying they noticed the two dogs wandering around in a cemetery.

Two humane society volunteers went and rescued the dogs that night, not wanting to leave them in the cold. "I kept the little girl bulldog and Debbie [Rumker] kept the chocolate lab that night," said Jodi Brannon, a member of the humane society's pet adoption program.

But, they quickly learned that living arrangement wasn't the best idea. "The bulldog just shut down at my house," said Brannon. "I could not get her to get up and go outside or anything."

When they took the dogs to the Lowndes County Animal Shelter the next day for their stray hold, that was when they learned that the two dogs were best kept together.

"When we got there, I couldn't get the bulldog out of my car until she saw the chocolate lab. She jsut sprung up and jumped out of the car and went and met him and they were kissin' each other," explained Brannon.

With their stray hold being up, the humane society was looking for a permanent home for the pair Friday. "I would like to adopt them out together. I just don't think that [Mazy] would thrive if she's not with him," said Brannon.

Several options were available for interested adopters. "We will actually be at Petsmart on Saturday from 11 to 4 and we also have an office number that they can call or they can go to our Facebook page," said Debbie Rumker, also a member of the humane society's pet adoption program.
