So this afternoon my husband, Eric, was driving his moped through East Atlanta when he saw a small Poodle dart out in the middle of traffic on Moreland AVE right by I-20, an extremely busy road in Atlanta. Three cars screeched to a halt, barely missing the little, terrified dog. My husband followed him into a parking lot and cornered him into a fenced in area.
We keep leashes in the car for situations just like this, but because Eric was driving the moped, he didn't have away of leashing the dog.
You can see GA's laws and regulations about breeding pets here:
It states "If your animal has more than 1 litter in a twelve month period, you are required to obtain a pet dealer's license." Here are the requirements for the license: http://agr.georgia.gov/animal-protection-faqs.aspx

Ingredients are listed according to which is highest in weight in the
product, so the first ingredient listed is the most important. You
want to make sure that the first ingredient is meat for example
chicken, beef, turkey, etc. Meat by-products and meal are not as good,
but better than a grain being listed first. Do not use food with a
grain like corn listed as the first ingredient. Many dogs, especially
bully breeds, have allergies to these brands which can cause skin
We are based out of South East Atlanta. Most of our community outreach is done in the following Atlanta neighborhoods: East Atlanta, South Atlanta, Lakewood Heights, Pittsburgh, and Grant Park. Many of these neighborhoods have packs of feral dogs due to the high level of strays and abandoned pets in the areas. The Lakewood Heights Community Association recently donated funds for us to purchase a large, high quality, humane dog trap after several residents noticed a couple of aggressive pregnant moms in the pack.
I got into rescue in the late 90s when I started volunteering for a local
rescue. Over the years I’ve volunteered for several animal welfare groups,
worked at two nonprofit, low-cost spay/neuter clinics, and worked at a county
funded, open admission humane society where we had to euthanize weekly because of lack of space.
I currently volunteer for a national animal welfare group, several local animal welfare groups, and I’m the president
of Atlanta Bully Rescue. Over the years
I’ve been blessed with amazing mentors and associates.
