Hello, I’m Abu. I’m a medium sized mix of about everything small breed. My foster family did a DNA test! I’m about 8 months old and pretty much done growing at 30 lbs. I would have to be 300 lbs if I ever was to grow into my ears! Ha!

My personality is as unique as I am. I love going for rides and hanging with a friendly pack at my foster house and sleeping curled up in the bed like a cinnamon bun and running off with the ball when the labs want to play fetch. I’m joyful, and fun loving and curious, and all around a great pup. However, new situations scare me. I need a big buddy to hide behind and observe. I really need a dog to take cues off of about life and really should not be an only dog because of my nature to be scared of new situations. After a day or two with a new situation, I come out of my shell and become the fun loving goof that I am.I am fully vetted, neutered, microchipped, and potty trained. If you are interested in applying for Abu, please go to our website: to fill out an application. He is fostered in Huntsville, AL

About Friends of Rescue - Homewood

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.

Our Adoption Process...

We have many wonderful dogs and cats looking for FORever Homes!

Our adoption fee covers their complete age-appropriate vetting, spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm/flea prevention, and full medical records.
