Soulful eyes and a big heart–who wouldn’t fall in love with this guy? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Atticus, a 3-year-old medium-sized mixed breed dog from Brookhaven, Mississippi. Atticus is a social butterfly with good manners, and he gets along with other dogs. He is spayed, up to date on his shots and microchipped.

Atticus’s Tale

Sweet, friendly, but sometimes a little shy, Atticus is one of those dogs that’s been unjustly overlooked for all of his short pooch life. And it’s a mystery why! He’s a beaut, he has a lovely personality, and he’ll give you all of the love in the world if you let him. Atticus is social and gets along well with people, but he can be a bit timid around men initially, Naturally, as soon as he figures out you’re not going to hurt him (and maybe that there are some yummy treats involved), he’ll relax and become friendly. And that’s when his character shines through–this cute dog is as sweet as they come. A good boy if you’ve ever seen one!

Atticus is not only friendly with peeps, either. At the shelter, he proved to be a fantastic furry friend with other dogs in their care, which is great if you have a pet in your home already- or plan to adopt two dogs at once. Atticus won’t mind the company- in fact, he’ll love it if he has another four-legged roommate to share his new family home with.

In case you are curious to find out more about Atticus and how he’d fit in with your family, contact Brookhaven Animal Rescue League for more information. They know all about Atticus’s quirks and habits and they’ll be more than happy to help you get to know this cure pooch too.
