Shopan is a handsome adult male Anatolian Shepherd who was left behind, chained to a tree, when his owners moved away. The chain was heavy enough to pull an 18 wheeler. With Winter setting in, Shopan was left to the mercy of the elements, and with no food or water he was facing a cruel fate.
Thankfully, Shopan was found and rescued just in time. His rescuers contacted the National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network for help. 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 out.
DogsOnly is known to take large breed canine companions, so it wasn’t long before Shopan was on his way to safe haven in Little Rock. Shopan is now safe and sound while DogsOnly looks for a new home and family for him.
Shopan is a rare find of a companion and all he needs is a loving family who knows how to give a good hard ear and belly scratch and won’t sneak away when he’s not looking. Shopan gets along famously with everyone he meets, but he’s not as fond of other dogs. He would do best in a home as the only dog.
You can meet Shopan 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.
Shopan 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 are not likely to sneak off in the dead of night, Shopan might make the perfect addition to your family.
If you would like to learn more about Shopan 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 Shopan.
Please note that Shopan will not be adopted as a working dog.
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.
