Otis is a boisterous and happy little male Golden Retriever Chow Chow mix puppy. Otis was rescued with his brothers as strays in Little Rock. Hungry, scared, and tired, the little band on the run gave in, and was 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 little Otis huddled in the corner of a cold concrete kennel, and before he knew what was happening, he was lifted from the cold floor into warm arms and then on to a safe caring foster home.
Otis has the softest silky black and tan coat with the coldest little nose and bright alert eyes. An energetic and very happy young puppy, Otis 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 Otis 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 Otis’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.
Otis’ adoption fee is $125 and covers all necessary vet care to include spay or neuter, rabies, micro chipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes. Adoption showings are every Sat & Sun at the WLR on across from Target and Home Depot from 1-4. Please note that DogsOnly does not show on holiday weekends. It is recommended that you call the before you come to visit Otis to make sure that he is still available for adoption. Please call during our showing hours at 501-219-9907 as the store employees are not always aware on the availability of our rescues.
If you think that Otis would make the perfect addition to your family and you can take being nuzzled on your neck with a cold tickly little nose without breaking up in fits of laughter, 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.
Due to time restraints, we are not able to accept phone calls outside of our showing times at (Sat & Sun 1-4), but we always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times.

All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of our fosters have cats in their homes so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found.
DogsOnly relies solely on donations and is a 501(c)3 Humane Society. Our mission is to rescue dogs that most other groups are not interested in due to their size, breed, age, health or other various reasons, and to provide education resources for dog owners and those with an interest in the wellbeing of dogs. DogsOnly believes that no dog should be left behind.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs die.
