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 Leia from SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society. Leia is a one-year old female Bulldog/American Terrier/ Pitbull mix. Here is more about Leia from the SmallDog Rescue Facebook page:
YES I AM PART PIT BULL, BUT SO WHAT? WHO CARES? I AM AWESOME!
My name is Leia and I was rescued from a high-kill animal shelter minutes before my time was up. I am a one-year old American Bulldog and Pit Bull mix who loves everyone I meet! I am a 55 pound lap dog who enjoys cuddling and giving kisses. I play very well with other dogs and like meeting new people and pups. They say I am a very smart girl who has already learned sit & down. I am even crate trained and potty trained and just waiting for my forever family... Could it be with you? I also enjoy leash walks and am working on my leash manners. I have a soft tan coat, white socks and beautiful brown eyes. I also have a slight under bite which sometimes makes me have a snaggle tooth . . . it's adorable if I do say so! Come meet me, an amazing girl, today to know what unconditional love feels like.

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.
