Skip is a pretty little male Shepherd
mix pup who was picked up as a stray in Little Rock. After an unceremonious
trip to the pound, he suddenly found himself in a loud, frightening,
and unfamiliar place. Often hungry, scared, and tired puppies like
Skip 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 Skip shivering from fear with his brothers, and before
he knew what was happening, he was off to the vets office for a complete
check up and then on to a safe foster home.
Like all young puppies, Skip spends most of his time
sleeping, but he more than makes up for lost time when he wakes up.
An energetic and very happy young puppy, Skip 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 Skip
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 Skip’s new guardians
have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs.
Remember, just like kids, puppies grow up real fast, and need lots
of patience, love and attention along the way.
Skip likes nothing more than spending
time snuggling and playing with visitors, and enjoys going for walks.
He gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home, and gets
really excited when he see one of his human friends coming.
The adoption fee is $125 and covers
all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions),
rabies, microchipping and registration, all vaccinations (including
all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming,
Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate
and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes.

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 foster homes work with our rescues to ensure 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 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. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society. The only support we receive is from donations from the general public.
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.
