Introduction

Do you have Georgia on your mind? Are you a citizen of the great state of Georgia? Ray Charles sang the virtues of the state, and natives and visitors alike comment on the beauty and hospitality of Georgia. It was the last of the Thirteen Colonies, and it was originally established as a penal colony for those who could not pay their debts. Georgia was named in honor of King George II (prior to the Revolutionary War, of course); its nickname is "The Peach State." President Jimmy Carter hailed from The Peach State, and he began life as a peanut farmer. Coincidentally, Georgia is the top producer of peanuts. A dog from Georgia is like many other Southern dogs - it is generally pampered whether it is a hunting dog or a toy dog.

Georgia Dog Name Considerations

Georgia is one of the oldest territories in the Southeast, and it was the last of the original colonies when America was young. Georgia has the best of it all; parts of Georgia are in the foothills of the Appalachians, and other parts touch the Atlantic Ocean. Not only is Georgia known for its sweet peaches, but Georgia is also one of the top producers of pecans and vidalia onions (which, surprisingly, are also sweet). Georgia is known as the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a home there. 

Georgia is also home to some unique animals. Although Georgia's Stone Mountain sits over 1,000 feet above sea level, live shrimp flourish at the top of the mountain. Rainwater which gathers in the stone provides a perfect habitat for the shrimp to thrive. In addition, Cumberland Island is home to a herd of wild horses. 

What kind of dog embodies the state of Georgia? Virtually any type of dog is at home in The Peach State. Like most other Southern states, the Labrador Retriever is the most popular breed in Georgia. This embodies the love of the outdoors of many Georgia residents. The Labrador Retriever makes a hunting companion; however, he is also a welcome addition to families with children (he is very protective of kids). 

The German Shepherd is the second most popular dog in the state of Georgia. He is an excellent watch dog, and he is often employed in service work of some sort. He is also a highly intelligent dog that is exceptionally brave - adjectives that could easily describe Georgia residents as well. The third most popular breed in Georgia is also a hunting companion - the Beagle. The Beagle is used to hunt both large and small game (anything from raccoons to white tail deer). The Beagle can be somewhat stubborn, but he is also a great companion dog. Of course, no Southern belle would be complete without a small, fanciful dog such as a Yorkie, a Maltese, or Miniature Poodle or designer breeds such as the Maltipoo and Cockapoo.
