Louise is a Flat-coated Retriever who loves people and attention and more than anything wants a forever home and family. When she first came to the DogsOnly program, she had been in a foster home with another rescue for a year, and so she was a little nervous. But once she settled in, she just loves everyone and all the other foster dogs. Louise is quite the agile girl, and can easily jump a 6 foot fence to go and visit with the other dogs in her foster home. However Louise doesn’t have any desire to jump the fence to leave, she only jumps the fence to go and visit other dogs, often following her sister, Thelma. After some enthusiastic tail wagging, sniffing, and raucous playing, Louise usually jumps right back into her own yard. Louise also loves the water and loves to go for a swim.
Louise was rescued with her sister Thelma who is also posted for adoption. They do not have to be adopted together but do make a stunning pair of girls and get along well with the exception of the occasional sibling squabble. Due to Louise and Thelma’s agile abilities, we would consider adopting the girls to a home in the country without fencing as long as the property is large enough and away from a busy road. The girls are housetrained and love human company. They are learning not to jump on people as a greeting and are doing well, so they will need an owner who will continue to work with them and reinforce good manners. Both girls weigh about 50 pounds and are full grown.
You can meet both Louise and Thelma 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 he is still available for adoption. Louise has received a complete medical evaluation, her shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, grooming, and will be altered and receive her microchip as soon as she’s old enough. If you think that Louise and/or Thelma 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.
