Gertrude is an AKC Great Pyrenees who was rescued from a breeder. The breeder purchased Gertrude to breed and make money off her puppies. She purchased her from an auction selling dogs to be used for breeding. After keeping her for a year and a half she never went into heat, the breeder did not want her and wanted to dump her. Then came the recent floods in Arkansas and the small pen she lived in was knee deep in water. The breeder just left her there in the water with no concern for her safety.
Dogsonly received a request to take Gertrude in, which we did. Once at the vet, it was discovered she were so malnourished, that her body was in survival mode and could not sustain a heat cycle. Gertrude and her sister were adopted so they could stay together. Gertrude has recovered, her hair has grown back and she is up to normal weight. She is very sweet and good with children, other dogs, and cats. She likes to come in and sleep at night, she does not tear anything up but everything is kept put up except her toys. The new owner cannot contain Gertrude, she likes to jump the fence but will stay in the yard. Because they live so near to a major highway they feel that they must give her up for her protection and safety. She needs a home with a high fence. She is very lovable and will make a family the perfect companion. Her owners has asked Dogsonly to find her a new and reliable family. Gertrude’s sister is not prone to climb the fence, so they will be able to keep her.

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 foster families work with our rescues to ensure that they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, 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 the DogsOnly 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 are a 501(c)3 private 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. This does not mean that there is something wrong with any of our rescues, it just means we help the ones others tend to leave 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.
