An older dog who loves to relax, Poe is incredibly friendly and would be a great companion for anyone seeking a no-fuss addition to the family. He likes taking walks and napping outside, and he enjoys a game of tug-of-war when he can get it. Poe seems to do well with other animals and has not exhibited any signs of aggression.

The folks at the shelter said they have not seen Poe interact with young children but believe he would do well around them based on his behavior. He is not a ‘jumpy’ dog and is instead fairly calm and peaceful.

When calling to ask about Poe, reference pet I.D. number 12827.

Visit Poe or one of the many other animals available for adoption at the Gordon County Animal Control Animal Shelter, 790 Harris Beamer Road, on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

Adoption fees for cats adopted from Gordon County are $75. The adoption fee for dogs is $85. These prices cover the cost of a spay/neuter procedure and a rabies vaccine.
