Ain’t this a fine mess? You give 5 years of your life to someone and then just one day they say “Hey, I’m moving and I can’t take you with me.”  I’m Buddy Budweiser and that’s the short version of how I became a Furkid. Of course I’m grateful they brought me here because at least I know I have a good chance of finding someone who will love and keep me through thick and thin.  And why wouldn’t you? I’m totally friendly to everyone! The staff think that even though I love kids, I’d probably be better with the bigger ones just because I don’t know my own strength sometimes and I might knock a little one down. I have lots of energy and would really do well in a very active household. If you have another dog who wouldn’t mind sharing their toys with me, that would be great too! I should probably tell you that my leash training is ongoing and will definitely require some patience until I get it down perfect. I’m also not a huge fan of being picked up but I’m totally ready for all the hugs and snuggling you want to give me. So please, if you can promise that you will never leave me behind, then I’m ready to move forward with you!

About Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters

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.
