Baby Cakes is a friendly and contented little Australian Shepherd mix puppy. She was probably born sometime around December 1st as a stray, but it wasn’t long before she found herself locked away in the pound. Truth be known, this was probably the best thing for all involved. Baby Cakes was at least now off the street, getting clean food and water, was given some basic medical attention. Now she had a real chance of being adopted into a family. However, there are two dangers that could easily dash that hope. While she is in the custody of Little Rock Animal Services the clock is ticking, and unless she is adopted quickly, she could fall victim to one of the many diseases that are epidemic in the crowded conditions of the shelter and die. If by chance, she did manage to survive the soup of various viruses that tear through the young weak puppies, she could still eventually face the grim fate of euthanasia.
Fortunately, a visiting DogsOnly volunteer saw great promise in little Baby Cakes and before she knew it, Baby Cakes was safe in a foster home, running and playing with other rescued dogs. None the worse for her experience, Baby Cakes is now between ten and twelve weeks old and is gaining weight every day. It won’t take her long to sprout into a healthy forty to sixty 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 Baby Cakes’ new family will need to understand that Baby Cakes 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 Baby Cakes 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 Baby Cakes’ 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 Baby Cakes 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. Baby Cakes 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.
