Banjo is a beautiful male Golden Retriever Shepherd mix adult dog, who is between 1 and 2 years old. He is completely housebroken and trustworthy in the house. He lives with a small male Chihuahua who thinks he is the boss and Banjo, at times, has different ideas. So Banjo has to find a new home. Banjo is great with most dogs but prefers not to live with bossy little taco dogs. Banjo has always been very sweet and loving but has his limits. Because of his size (about 60-70 pounds) we recommend that Banjo should be adopted to a home with older children as he could easily knock over a younger child.
Banjo was found as a stray roaming the streets of Little Rock with a band of pups on the run, They were al hungry, tired, cold, and in need of some love and cuddles to replace their momma’s affection. Animal Services made short work of catching the frightened little pups and it was off to the shelter for the fluffy band of little pups, no longer on the run.

Even though the conditions at the shelter are a big improvement over the unknown of being a stray on the streets, there still remains the very real and dangerous possibility of contracting a life threatening disease in the shelter. Shelter staff make extraordinary efforts steps to prevent the spread of disease, but the danger of contracting a life threatening disease remains, especially for the small and most vulnerable pups.

While at the shelter, the pups were given some medical attention, and after taking care of their immediate needs, they were sent to the DogsOnly Rescue and Rehab program in Little Rock where they can get not only all the good food, water, and medical attention they need, but also have room to run and play with other dogs in safe comfortable and secure surroundings.
An adoption fee applies which covers all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions), rabies, micro-chipping 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.

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 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.
