Mickey is a charming 10 week old male Cocker Spaniel Rat Terrier mixed puppy. His mother was an AKC Cocker Spaniel and his father was a Rat Terrier. He was the only puppy in the litter. His rescuer took him in although she knew she was not going to be able to take care of him. She just wanted to make sure he would find a good loving home. She was staying in Arkansas temporarily in a travel trailer with 5 children, her own cocker spaniel, all while taking care of her sick mother-in-law. Obviously there was little time left over to spend training him. Mickey did wonderful with her older children but was a little snappy with the 2 and 4 year olds. As a result Mickey is not recommended for a family with children under the age of 7-9 years. He is working on his housetraining and other puppy manners but needs an adoptive family who has the time and patience to train a new puppy.
Mickey is an independent rescue supported by DogsOnly, but you should be able to meet him at the DogsOnly adoption showings at the west Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot every Sat and Sun from 1-4. Please be sure and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit him to make sure that he is still available for adoption. Mickey has received a complete medical evaluation, alter, all shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, micro-chipping, and grooming. If believe that you might have a permanent place in your life for Mickey, 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.
