New year new home: Betsy Bit O’Honey

See also

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. As we start the new year and throughout the month of January, I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.

Today’s featured pet is Betsy Bit O’Honey from SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society. Betsy is a five-year old springer/spaniel mix. Here is more about Betsy from the SmallDog Rescue website:

Betsy was found wandering the streets and Furkids/SmallDog Rescue agreed to take her in and find her a forever home. Betsy's foster mom says that she is very sweet-natured. Betsy loves to be on the couch with her head (or more) in a person's lap or just stretching out alongside or on top of that person -- all 50 pounds of her!

Betsy is also trainable - learning the ‘shake’ and ‘down’ commands. She also loves to jump over things and her favorite toy is a white stuffed bone (which will go with her to her forever home). Betsy does like to bark when her person leaves the room, but her foster mom is working with Betsy so she doesn't have to be afraid of being left alone. Just one last thing - Betsy is just a little TOO interested in finding cats so she probably should be in a home without them.

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.
