Claudia is a friendly little Cocker Spaniel mix puppy. She was probably born sometime around December 1st, but her prospects for a happy season were slim. Picked up by Little Rock Animal Services on Christmas Eve, Claudia had to spend the holiday in a cold, damp, inhospitable kennel.
None the worse for her experience, Claudia is now between six and eight weeks old and weighs about six pounds. It won’t take her long to sprout into a healthy thirty to forty pounds as a full grown adult. She is such a gorgeous girl, its hard to keep your hands off of her. She is a very happy and active little puppy and would love to have a family to keep her company and play with. She loves attention and would do best in a home with someone who has experience raising a young puppy or someone who is willing to commit the time and training for a very young dog.
Everyone in Claudia’s new family will need to understand that Claudia is a very active puppy, and will probably grow up to be a wonderful dog, but she is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Claudia is at the moment, she will grow into an adult canine companion in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young puppy including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Claudia’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, they grow up real fast, and need lots of patience, love and attention along the way.
You can meet Claudia at the west Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot every Sat and Sun from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Please be sure and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit her to make sure that she is still available for adoption. Claudia has received a complete medical evaluation, all shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, micro-chipping, grooming, and will be altered as soon as she’s old enough. If you think that Claudia would make the perfect addition to your family, you are invited to send an email to Contact@DogsOnly.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange text links at the top or bottom of this page.
If you don’t find that special companion you are looking for in the DogsOnly rescue, rehabilitation, and re-home program then please visit Last Chance Arkansas or one of the many other central Arkansas rescue organizations to save a rescued canine companion.
