Jewel is a stunning little 8 week old female Anatolian Shepherd Great Pyrenees mix pup. She ended up in a high kill shelter in Texas where she was surrendered along with her 3 siblings and both parents. The owners could no longer care for their animals, and off to the pound they all went.
Fortunately, someone recognized the breed and contacted the National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network (NASRN) who agreed to help out. 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.
DogsOnly is known to take large breed canine companions, so it wasn’t long before Jewel was on her way to Little Rock, all thanks to some kind volunteers who agreed to transport Jewel from Texas to Arkansas at their own expense. Sadly no foster home could be found for Jewel in Texas, and so it was that Jewel said goodbye to her parents and siblings and came to Arkansas for foster care. Jewel is now safe and sound while DogsOnly looks for a new home for her.
Jewel was very scared and sad when she first arrived at DogsOnly for foster. She lost one of her brothers in the shelter after he got sick and we learned that some one had treated her harshly, even at her tiny age. Once arriving at DogsOnly, she quickly bonded with our resident surrogate mother, Shiloh who is also available for adoption. This helped Jewel overcome her home sickness and she quickly turned into a very happy, well adjusted puppy.
Jewel will in all probability grow to at least be 80-100 pounds as an adult. Both of her breeds tend to be guardian type personalities when they mature so she would probably do best in a home with both large breed and guardian breed experience. She is a confident pup and will most likely have some alpha traits as she matures, and may want to be top dog in her new home. Personalities should always be considered when adopting. She is a typical puppy and loves to be held, given a lot of attention and a great deal of love. Her beauty is very striking and she will most likely retain her markings as she matures.
Jewel is being fostered for the National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network and their guidelines and adoption fees apply. The adoption fee covers all necessary vet care to include: spay (mandatory), 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. We do not show on holiday weekends. Also, you may want to call the store to make sure that Jewel 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. The email contact to learn more about Jewel is firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can submit an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored 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 of our fosters 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 Guest, 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.
