Tonka is a baby Anatolian Shepherd German Shepherd mix puppy who was found with his brother and sister as strays. Tonka ended up at a high kill shelter where, like many of the animals, he had little chance of getting adopted or making it out of the shelter. Fortunately for Tonka, he was able to come to the DogsOnly rescue and rehome program.
Tonka is a peaceful and quiet little chap. His paws are huge, so if that is anything to go by, he’s going to be a big fella when he grows up. For now, he looks like a big ball of soft fur, and loves to snuggle and spend time with anyone who will give him a good scratch behind his ears.
Tonka is quite the happy little puppy and about 9 weeks old and maybe 15 to 12 pounds. He loves to play with his brother and is a typical puppy. He needs a home that has the time and energy to raise a healthy well adjusted puppy into a good canine companion.
Tonka is energetic and very happy young puppy, and will probably grow up to be a first-class canine companion. 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 Tonka is at the moment, he will grow into a large 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 Tonka ’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.
Tonka’s 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 Tonka 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.
To learn more about Tonka you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored 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.
