Blossom is a sweet baby Shepherd mix who was picked up with her sister Cherry and taken to the shelter after they were found roaming the streets in Little Rock. Blossom was too tired and hungry to run away from the animal services officer, so she simply gave in and was picked up in arms and put into a crate in the back of a truck for her bumpy ride down to the shelter.
The shelter is a frightening place for a small puppy. The cries, the constant barking, and the smell of fear is very stressful to small pups like Blossom, not to mention the heightened risk of infectious disease. Fortunately for Blossom and her siblings, they were spotted by a visiting volunteer from DogsOnly, and released to a caring foster home where they can run about and play in safety until they find their new permanent homes and families.
Blossom is energetic and very happy young puppy, and 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 Cherry is at the moment, she will 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 Blossom ’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, they grow up real fast, and need lots of patience, love and attention along the way. Oh, and by the way, no matter how much the kids beg and promise to “look after the puppy and take it for walks every day” don’t believe it!
To learn more about Blossom 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. You can also meet Blossom and find out for yourself how wonderful she is at the DogsOnly adoption showings.
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.
