Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish - a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family.
Each week I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who want to be your furry forever friend. These adorable sweethearts want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.
Today’s featured pet is Erin Nance from SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society. Erin is a four-year old female Boxer/Great Dane mix. Here is more about Erin from the SmallDog Rescue website:
I'm Erin Nance, a fabulous four-year-old Boxer and Great Dane Mix. I'm a great girl -- loving, affectionate, sweet and mild-mannered. I love to play fetch with toys. That's not all the wonderful news about me! I have a beautiful brown-and-white coat, walk well on a leash, and I have terrific house manners. I can't wait to be the only dog in my forever home, where praise and love and treats will abound! Erin needs to be the only pet in her new home.

About SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. (from the website)
SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. (SDR) is a 501(c)(3) Georgia nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to finding loving families for homeless dogs in Georgia.We rescue “at risk” dogs from local shelters and animal control facilities. ‘At risk’ dogs are those who have run out of time at shelters, have medical conditions, or need more socialization before being placed in a home. We also rescue many highly adoptable small breeds – Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, Pugs, Poodles, Dachshunds, Maltese, Terriers, Bichon Frises – it is a truly a myth that only mixed breeds end up homeless!
Our volunteers work to socialize our dogs and provide them with loving care. Through our foster homes, we assess the dogs in a home setting, allowing us to better understand the kind of home and family the dog will need. SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. (SDR) has now teamed up with Furkids, Inc. to help find more animals (dogs and cats) loving homes.
