peytonPeyton, a four month old shepherd mix pup, was rescued from the bottom of a trash can in Atlanta last month.  A feral cat rescuer was searching a local park when he heard odd noises emanating from an oil-drum trash barrel just off the beaten path.

Approaching the barrel, he discovered a discarded young dog covered in trash, tar and grime.

LifeLine Animal Project took the unwanted dog in, and now ‘Peyton’ is available for adoption. Given his rough start in life, we would love to know that he is headed to a good home. Perhaps yours?

Consider his listing details. This vibrant young dog will make a terrific companion for the lucky human who adopts him. Don’t have room for another dog? Share with a friend, you never know.

Peyton is a sweet young shepherd mix ready for his forever home. He’s a fun, energetic puppy. He plays a lot and sleeps a lot and who will follow you everywhere. He is smart and knows several commands already such as sit, stay, go potty, and leave it. Since he goes potty on command, he has been house broken and goes outside every time now.

Peyton loves people and dogs
