About Atkinson

Atkinson's not so awesome adventure.......It started in Kentucky when he and two brothers were taken in to what they thought was their new home. I'm sure that it was difficult for the owner who was caring for three 5-month old puppies and dealing with her own health issues. She found someone who would take them in up here in Illinois. She took them to the vet to bring them up to date on vaccines and her boyfriend drove them all the way to their new owners in Illinois. Unfortunately the new owners decided that they could not stay. Luckily, Atkinson found his way to Almost Home.

Atkinson is super sweet and loving. He is absolutely adorable and loves to give kisses. Very handsome too! He is shy when he is unsure about things he hasn't experienced yet. As he spends time with kennel staff and attends the adoption events, his confidence will build. He does appear to be housebroken.

He is still a puppy and energetic, so a home where he is not left alone long hours is best. A puppy also requires a family that has time to work on basic training and socialization. You can meet him at one of our adoption shows or you can email to find out more about him. Please contact Jackie at jaccapps@sbcglobal.net or 630 400 3979.
