You’ll be green with envy if you miss out on adopting Greenie! This 2 year old is the total package — he is seemingly house-trained, knows how to sit and even gives smooches. Greenie is a very social fellow whose tail is always wagging. He’s a total sweetheart and loves receiving treats. Greenie doesn’t mind the company of other dogs and is patiently waiting for his new home. Meet Greenie today at Dekalb County Animal Services, located at 3280 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Chamblee.
