Welcome to Refuge Rescue…
S P O T L I G H T P R O F I L E :
𝗦weet, Sweet Lars
Lars is just the best. He’s a super lovable, gentle, friendly and shy boy who loves everybody. Seriously. Everybody. Even cats.
He is joyful. When something makes him happy – which is often – he does a wonderful, twirling, happy dance.
He adores children. There are two little girls next door to his foster home. He’s always excited to see them and revels in their hugs and attention. He’s very patient and sweet with them.
Cuddles are important to him. Lars will snuggle right up to you, whether on the floor, sofa or in bed.
He has huge ears; and he prefers to wear them down.
He is a TV and movie enthusiast – and he especially enjoys Masterpiece Theater. He’ll sit on the sofa with his head in your lap and help you watch all your favorite shows.
Lars can tell time. He knows when its breakfast time, dinner time and time for the dog walker to visit. He’ll let you know when it’s time to eat and time to walks.
He loves the great outdoors and he’s a nosy neighbor. He likes to be outside, keeping watch over everything going on in the neighborhood.
He’s got great walking skills, but he’s also a great dancer. When it’s walkie time, he excitedly twirls, dances and barks for joy – and then sits readily, waiting for the leash. He’s really well-mannered and doesn’t pull and loves long walks with time to explore.

Lars needs his people. He’s not a fan of being left on his own. He needs a home with folks who are with him a lot. He needs to be part of the family.
He needs a confident buddy. He’ll do best with another dog in the home for companionship and confidence.
He’s a bit shy initially, so having a dog to learn from and to guide him will help build his self-confidence and make him feel secure.
He’s a good brother. He’s very respectful of other dogs and their preferences; he learns quickly and is great at taking cues from other dogs. He follows foster brother Huck’s lead, including barking warnings about the postman. He did the same when he was with his brother Lex.
Lars is ready for his forever home…
… is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 charity and dog rescue group founded in August of 2015. We rescue dogs of all breeds and all ages. Our organization is located in Woodstock, Georgia and we adopt our dogs to pre-approved homes within a 50 mile radius of our rescue.
Our Mission is:
… to save responsibly as many dogs as we can from high kill shelters and to find them forever homes.
… to educate the public about animals in high kill shelters throughout Georgia and the responsibilities involved with pet ownership, such as spay/neuter, heartworm and flea prevention, and vaccines.
PUPPY MILL RESCUE UPDATE – SPUD! This is why we do what we do! Last year, Spud came to us as a frightened, feces and urine encrusted, flea infested, horribly-matted, terrified little guy straight out of puppy mill hell.
THEN…He was so horribly matted, it took several shaving attempts to release his pinched, infected skin from the filthy mats. His mouth was rotten. Sores covered his body. His feet were swollen and bloodied. Born only to breed and breed and breed, it’s a life of abject suffering. It’s the excruciating existence of dogs used to produce all of the puppies, and money, for a puppy mill breeder.
NOW… We have been extremely careful and cautious placing our 15 puppy mill rescues into the best homes – foster or adoptive. We’ve put a ton of tears, love, effort and money into each of these fragile little ones. Their previous lives were nothing but torture, so we are dedicated to ensuring each one winds up in the absolute best situation with the best opportunity for a happy life going forward – knowing what it is to be loved, well-cared-for and cherished.
Spud’s pictures speak for themselves. He has his very own pack of furry friends, and his new mom is head over heels in love with him. At bedtime, he always grabs the best spot. He is the happiest, most entertaining dog, and we are so happy he is part of our family!
We’re ugly crying! But they’re very happy tears! We’re proud to have been part of you finding your happily ever after, Spud!
