Sharon is a beautiful and cuddly little Australian Shepherd mix who was picked up and taken in as a stray by Little Rock Animal Services. Almost too young to survive on her own, it was fortunate that she was found before it was too late. However the shelter is a noisy and frightening place for such a young puppy, and at such a young age puppies like Sharon are at risk for contracting disease while they wait for a new family.

Sharon’s good luck had not run out it seems, because she was soon spotted by a visiting volunteer from DogsOnly. Sharon is now having a great time in an experienced and loving foster home with her litter mates who were picked up with her; Ozzy, Kelly, and Jack. All she needs now is a permanent home and a family to love and cuddle.
Sharon will grow up to be a first-class canine companion. However she is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Sharon is at the moment, she 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 Sharon’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. And just like Kids, raising a youngster into a healthy well socialized adult dog takes time and effort.
To learn more about Sharon 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. 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. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times.
All DogsOnly volunteer fosters work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. Currently only one of the DogsOnly foster families 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 other environments where the dog’s life is in jeopardy. 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 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 rescued companions, 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.
