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.
Guinness is a great one-of-a-kind Shepherd Mix weighing just 43 pounds. He was found as a stray and rescued by a Furkids/SmallDog Rescue volunteer. Guinness’ foster dad says that he is a great dog, affectionate, handsome and gentle. He likes to play and wrestle with his foster dad, but stops as soon as his foster dad stops. Guinness loves a good walk and walks fine on a leash. Guinness gets along with adults and children, but does not like cats at all. He also does not like riding in a car, but with time, patience and training, Guinness is certain to overcome his anxiousness when riding in cars.

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.
