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 Wicklow from SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society. Baxter is a five-year old male Spaniel/English Cocker mix. Here is more about Wicklow from the SmallDog Rescue website:
Wicklow was picked up as a stray and taken to a high kill animal facility. Furkids/SmallDog Rescue recognized what a great dog Wicklow would be for some deserving individual or family. Yes, Wicklow does have eyes but they are hidden by his beautiful black coat. Right now Wicklow weighs 27 lbs., but a good haircut might just reduce his weight by a couple of pounds! Wicklow spent a little time in a foster home and here's what his foster mom said about him: Wicklow is easy as pie, eats good, is crate trained, house trained, gets along great with other dogs, has no problem with cats, is awesome and doesn't bark. She also says he's smart. In summary, Wicklow is perfect!

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.
