From the Foster:

Hello! My name is Atticus! I have been in the rescue for a long time, but don’t let that deter you—I am a fun-loving little guy who cannot wait to find a forever family. My biggest challenge is that I would LOVE a stay at home parent. I have been used to having my foster dad around all day, and it suits me very well.

I like playing with other dogs, and cuddling with me foster brother, too! I met a Great Dane the other day and thought she was the best! I have met kitties I am good with, but should only be with dog-savvy kitty friends. I have never met a person I did not adore! I am goofy and let my foster mom dress me up in clothes and hats. I know sit and down and am very smart. I do bark when I am excited or anxious, so apartments would not be the best fit for me. Hopefully after reading all about me, you are still interested, and will fill out an application. I can’t wait to be with my forever family! I promise I will be a good boy.

If Atticus is the pup for you, fill out an application to adopt her or see more pictures here.
