Facts about Boss

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier/Cocker Spaniel Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 31025332
His name is Boss which in some respects fits because when we walk around the neighborhood people look at him with respect and admiration because of how dignified he looks when he struts along. But really his name could be Cupcake - the biggest one in the world - because he is sweetness dogified, heaping you with love and affection, including a sloppy kiss now and then. He listens to commands but he does have a will of his own too, explorative and interested in everything he sees moving. And he's even a great co-pilot when we are in the car!

He may be a senior pitizen but he's got years of lots of love and fun ahead to give and I can say that any family - probably best without cats, seems too interested in them. I am an UNDERDOG, so my adoption fee is reduced!! I have been DNA tested. I know I know I'm a strange mix :)


I'll miss him,
Boss' Foster Mom

About Atlanta Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) is a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit (IRS Tax ID# 58-0685900) and the oldest private charitable organization in Atlanta, founded in 1873 following a visit to the city by Robert E. Lee. The animal charity was originally chartered to protect women, children, and animals and remained a child protection and animal welfare society for 79 years. AHS, now a widely recognized pet adoption center, clinic, and educational program provider, was originally located on Marietta Street and moved to its location at 981 Howell Mill Road in the 1930s. Atlanta Humane Society's Mansell Road Adoption Facility was opened in December of 2011 in Alpharetta.

It is our mission to prevent neglect, abuse, cruelty and exploitation of animals and to assure that their interests and well-being are fully, effectively and humanely protected by an aware and caring society.

Atlanta Humane Society places approximately 8,000 animals into forever homes each year. AHS is committed to finding homes for all adoptable pets. We do not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for the animals once they are in our care. We only humanely euthanize those animals suffering from significant medical issues or that pose behavior concerns. We are proud to be a part of the solution to ending pet homelessness and overpopulation in the Southeast United States.
