No way of separating profession, heart for dog warden

Benjean “Straydog” runs to the arms of Georgia Dyson when she is afforded the opportunity from her pen at the Paulding County Animal Shelter these days. So do most of the other seven dogs currently living in the pens at the county facility.

For Dyson, it is anything but easy to part with the dogs at the shelter, whether or not they have to be “put down” or they are adopted out. She loves the job and she loves her animals. Although state regulations would allow her to move dogs without dog tags on in 72 hours, and those with tags in 14 days, a Dutch Shepherd mix that she took in on Jan. 6 is still enjoying the comfort of the facility.
