Bosco is a large adult male Labrador Retriever Pointer mix who was picked up as a stray by Little Rock Animal Services, and then sent to an independent foster family who is trying to help Bosco to find a permanent home and family.
Bosco would do well as an indoor or outdoor dog. He would need an enclosed outdoor area of some kind or to be taken on walks or to the park as he enjoys playing and exercising. He is very sweet and loyal. Bosco is definitely smart and learns quickly. He is obedient and curious. He can be somewhat shy with strangers, but warms up quickly. Bosco especially likes his toys, bones, other dogs, people, and a good soaking in the bath. He is energetic and likes to play ball. The one thing Bosco dislikes is loud noises.
Bosco has been vet checked, has all shots, wormed, neutered. He did test positive for heartworm while at shelter, but he is in the process of receiving treatment.
Bosco is an independent rescue supported by DogsOnly, so he will not be available to meet every Saturday except for holiday weekends at the DogsOnly adoption showing at Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot. However, your emails and adoption applications will be sent to Bosco’s rescuers who will contact you directly.

To learn more about Bosco you can send an email to DogsOnly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also encouraged to submit an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored links at the top or bottom of this page. Your adoption application will be forwarded to Bosco ’s foster family.
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 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.
