Hello and how do you do? My name’s Bishop and I consider myself really, super lucky to be a Furkid. Well I mean all of us dogs at the shelter are fortunate but me especially since I’m kind of a Jekyll and Hyde. If you pass by me in my crate at the shelter you might think I’m some ferocious beast but it’s not the case at all once I’m out of the kennel. I just get really anxious when people are standing there staring at me and I have no choice but to let them since I’m kinda stuck. I’m sure many of you wouldn’t like it either. Furkids saw the sweet guy that I truly am and that’s why they chose to save me from a high kill shelter because they know I’d make someone a loyal best friend.  Once you get me in the yard, I love to run around, chase balls and have a great time playing with other dogs. Kids are not really my specialty since they don’t get my personality. I’m more of a grown up’s cup of tea. Maybe you need a partner for your morning runs. I could totally fill that bill! Maybe you’d like a dog that isn’t jammed up in your face every five seconds begging for attention. That’s me! I’m pretty self-sufficient. That’s not to say that once we’ve made a connection that I wouldn’t enjoy having a good ear scratching, quite the contrary! I get really attached to those who give me a chance to get to know them. If I sound like an interesting, fun guy you’d like to get to know better, then please set up a time to come and meet me! Remember, don’t judge a book by its cover and don’t judge me in my kennel! Just ask someone to get me out and you’ll see the true Bishop.  

Bishop weighs 31 lbs. and his estimated birthdate is 2/24/2015.  His adoption fee is $275 [senior citizens (age 62 and older) and military personnel receive a 15% discount on adoption fees].  If you want to know more about Bishop and to speak to an Adoption Counselor, please complete an application at https://furkids.org/dog-adoptions/application.   Must be at least 21 years of age to apply.

About Our Rescue Group...

Furkids/SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. is a 501c)(3), tax-exempt organization dedicated to find loving families for homeless dogs in the Atlanta area. Every year, over 90,000 animals are killed in Georgia shelters. Our volunteers rescue many dogs from local shelters and foster them in their own homes until a suitable forever home is found. We do not shy away from taking sick or difficult dogs into our program. Thanks to donations, we are able to provide excellent medical care for all of our little orphans. Our volunteers work tirelessly on training, socializing, and giving the dogs all of the loving care that they so much deserve. Thanks to our friends and supporters, we have been able to save many lives in each of years. It is caring individuals like you who can make a difference in the lives of our wonderful orphan animals.
