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 Sachi Spearmint from SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society. Sachi is a four-year old shepherd mix. Here is more about Sachi from the SmallDog Rescue website:
I'm Sachi Spearmint, a beautiful blond Shepherd Mix with gorgeous brown ears and sweet ways. At four years old, I weigh 32 pounds. I was frightened by spending time at a high-kill facility. Guess that's why I'm still nervous and unsure about the world. I'm so relieved to have been saved by loving arms from Small Dog Rescue! Everyone reassures me now I'm OK and can flourish in a loving environment. They say the perfect forever family is out there for me. I'm imagining lots and lots of TLC, great company, a comfy bed and learning to do tricks for treats. Doesn't that sound fabulous? It would be my dream come true.

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.
