'My name is Teddy and the last six months have been wild, but I am finally healthy and ready to find a forever home. Let me tell you a little bit about myself so you can see if we might be a match. I am a Chow Chow mix and have many attributes of the breed. I can be aloof at times and at other times I love attention. In many ways I am like a cat – I do what I want when I want, but you will love me for it! If you love Chow Chow you will LOVE me!

'I am born to be downright suspicious of strangers, but for the right person, I will be a fiercely loyal companion. I would make a wonderful protection dog and alert you when visitors come to the door or into your yard. I also LOVE food. Like love, love, love it. I once enjoyed an Arby’s sandwich. (It sure was nice of them to leave that out on the table for me.)  

'When I was rescued I had a horrible ring around my neck where someone hurt me, but since then I have healed. My foster mom really helped me heal medically and emotionally. My ideal home would be with no cats or other animals, but I can live with some submissive females in the right environment.  Right now I am staying at BarkTown Atlanta in Norcross, GA. You can visit me seven days a week; just call 770-628-2800 to make an appointment. Visit for directions and information. I would love to meet 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.
