Sam is a two to three year old Great Pyrenees mix who was taken to a kill shelter and dropped off by his former owners. His former owners explained that a neighbor had been intimidated by Sam and had threatened to shoot him if he wandered onto the neighbor’s property. When the shelter advised that Sam would likely be euthanized at the shelter they turned and walked away.
Time ran short on Sam, but lucky for him the National Anatolian Rescue Network (NASRN) heard of his plight and came to the rescue. NASRN is a nation wide rescue effort, but they do not maintain shelters, and rely on regional volunteers and organizations like DogsOnly to help them rescue animals.
DogsOnly is known to take large breed canine companions, so it wasn’t long before Sam was on his way to Little Rock, and is now safe and sound while DogsOnly looks for a new home for him.
Sam is a rare find of a companion and really enjoys the company of people, but will try to be top dog with other dogs. He loves a good hard ear and belly scratch and will lean into you for more. When he sees one of his friends coming, Sam gets all kinds of excited and puts on quite a show of making his visitor feel welcome. He also makes a good listener.
You can meet Sam at the west Little Rock on across from Target and Home Depot every Sat and Sun from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM except holiday weekends. Please be sure and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit him to make sure that he is still available for adoption.
Sam has received a complete medical evaluation, all shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, micro-chipping, grooming, and has been altered. If you can give a good ear scratch and belly rub, and love to cuddle and talk, Sam might make the perfect friend. You are invited to send an email to Contact@DogsOnly.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored text links at the top or bottom of this page to learn more about adopting Sam. Sam will not be adopted as a working dog.
If you don't find that special companion you are looking for in the DogsOnly rescue, rehabilitation, and re-home program then please visit Little Rock Animal Services, North Little Rock Animal Services, Sherwood Humane Animal Services, or one of the many other central Arkansas rescue organizations to save a rescued canine companion.
