Cotton is a charming not so little female Great Pyrenees who was picked up as a stray by animal services in Little Rock. Despite being 25 Lbs at only 14 weeks old, Cotton is still a little behind the average weight for such a young Pyrenees puppy. However, with lots of love, good food and clean water, it’s not going to take long for her to catch up.
Cotton’s heritage is a long line of hard working livestock guardians, and her breed has some special characteristics well suited to their livestock guardian instincts that may pose a few challenges to a family inexperienced with Great Pyrenees. It’s not only her breed that may require some extra patience and love, but she’s still a very young pup. Cotton will probably 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 Cotton is at the moment, she will quickly grow into a large 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 Cotton’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs, especially the needs of livestock guardians. Remember, just like kids, puppies grow up real fast, and need lots of patience, love and attention along the way.
Cotton will be available to meet every Saturday except for holiday weekends at the DogsOnly adoption showings (click here for directions) at Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot. The email contact to learn more about Cotton is firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can submit an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored links at the top or bottom ofthis page.
All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of the DogsOnly 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 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 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.
