Bwana is a boisterous and happy 8 to 10 week old male Australian Shepherd mix pup. Bwana was rescued with his sisters as strays in Little Rock. Hungry, scared, and tired, the gang of four were taken down to the pound. Puppies are at greatest risk of all canine companions at the pound because they arrive unvaccinated in a confined environment where there is a real potential to contract disease. A visiting volunteer from DogsOnly spotted the gang huddled together in a kennel, and before they knew what was happening, they were off to the vets office for a complete check up and then on to a safe foster home.
Bwana has the softest silky jet black coat with a hint of white accent on his tummy. It is likely that his white accents will become more prominent as he gets older. An energetic and very happy young puppy, Bwana will probably grow up to be a first-class canine companion of around 50 to 60 Lbs. However he is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Bwana is at the moment, he 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 Bwana’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 Bwana 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 him to make sure that he is still available for adoption. Bwana has received a complete medical evaluation, his shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, grooming, and will be altered and receive his microchip as soon as he’s old enough. If you think that Bwana 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 Little Rock Animal Services or one of the many other central Arkansas rescue organizations to save a rescued canine companion.
