Looking for a LOVE dog? I am the cuddliest 65 pound lap dog you will ever meet! Just look at me! Have you ever seen a more dapper dog? I am always wearing my smart, black and white tuxedo, and, of course, a big smile on my face.

I am a young (2 year old), very healthy neutered male Labrador Retriever / American Pitbull Terrier mix. I am a very smart boy, and also very obedient. I have had lots of training, and have shown that I can learn complicated stuff very quickly. I love humans so much. I am great with strangers and kids too, but because I am very attached to my food and toys, small children might not be the best choice for me as housemates.

I'm a pretty easy-to-care-for dog. I don't need a ton of exercise, but will be happy to accompany you on a walk. I like to play, but not excessively. I'm AOK to spend an afternoon on the couch with you. I am warm and snuggly, and a great listener.

I am also a really good watch dog. I like to keep an eye on things for you, and can be counted on to let you know if there is a visitor at the door. My size and appearance is more than enough to keep prowlers away! I love to spend a few hours each day in the window watching birds and other critters in the yard. I am also a 'Kong-A-Holic'… give me my Kong and I am in Heaven!

So this leads me to the reason why I am looking for a new home… His name is Tuk, and he is my dog nemesis. Tuk and I live in the same home, and we just don't see eye to eye. He's a big Boxer, and I am afraid that he is going to steal my food, toys and Kongs. They are very precious to me, and me guarding my stuff has led to more than a few altercations between us. This has made for a very stressful home environment. Our owners have to keep us separated all day and night, and they worry about us constantly.

As much as it breaks their hearts, they feel that it would be best to find me a loving home where I am the only pet. So that I don't have to worry about any pet or person trying to take my stuff. I am such a good boy, so well behaved, calm and easy-going - but with this one issue that is easily solved by being the only pet.

Because of my 'resource guarding', small kids might not be a good fit - just to be on the safe side. I would be just fine with adults only - or a family with kids who are older than 10.

I would love to have a securely fenced yard to patrol, and owners with lots of time to spend with me.

Please offer me the loving home I need and deserve today. I can't wait to show you what a really smart, devoted and loving dog I am!

Love and licks,

About Atlanta Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
