I'm Jackson. My foster mom calls me her handsome boy and you can see why from my photo. I've been with her for about two months while I had treatment for heart worm and now Im ready to find my furever home. My foster mom loves me to pieces (she tells me all the time), but I'm a big strong boy who likes to dart after little furry creatures on our walks. She wants me to have someone bigger and stronger than she is to handle me when I try to run down a cat or squirrel. She wants me to tell you that I'm very well-behaved (other than that cat/squirrel thing) and that we got along famously right from the first day she brought me home. I have a big yard here and like to spend time out there running or just hanging out in the sun. I also love going to the dog park. We have a cat here and we get along great. I know she's family so I don't have to chase her. I've met several of the dogs in my mom's family and we've had a great time playing while they stayed with us. I do know the basic commands and am very well-behaved in the house. I love to snuggle on the couch with my mom in the evenings and she even lets me sleep on the end of the bed. I'll miss my foster family but will be happy to make my last move to furever home. Let's meet and see if we are right for each other.

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.
