Hennie is a beautiful young female Australian Shepherd mix puppy who was found along the side of the road in rural Arkansas near the community of Whitehall. Hennie and her litter mates were taken to the local shelter, but like most rural shelters, they have little time and resource to keep any animals they rescue for very long. The future was looking bleak for little Hennie until a couple of hard working rescue volunteers heard of their plight and pulled them from the shelter.
Hennie was groomed and taken to the vets for a good checkup and was given a clean bill of health. She is now happily romping about with the other pups and grown dogs in her foster home.
Hennie is energetic and very happy young puppy, and will probably grow up to be a first-class canine companion. However she is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Hennieis 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 Hennie ’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 Hennie 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. Hennie has received a complete medical evaluation, her first rounds of 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. Her adoption fee is $125 and helps to reimburse some of the cost if the medical care provided that Hennie has needed. If you think that Hennie 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.
