Snookums is a playful little Keeshound Shepherd mix pup who was picked up from the hot streets by Little Rock Animal Services with her mother. Momma had done a great job of caring for her babies, but there’s only so much you can do as a stray with a little of little squirming puppies who need constant attention and protection. Snookums and mother were captured and taken down to the shelter where they got some clean water, fresh food, and shelter from the blister heat. However, the shelter can be a frightening and risky place for puppies as young as Snookums where the risk of infection from a number of life threatening diseases is high.
Fortunately for Snookums a visiting volunteer from DogsOnly spotted the frightened pups and sprung them from the pound. Snookums and the gang are now safe and happy in a secure foster home where they will get all the love, attention they need and deserve.
Snookums will probably grow up to be first-class canine companions. However Sindi is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Snookums 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 the puppies’ 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.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt a puppy on an impulse. You should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give them the home they deserve. They’ll reward you with unbounded love and devotion, but you must be committed and serious about your decision to bring them into your life. Remember, this is an adoption, not a sale, and we’re very serious about making sure that both you and your puppy are a good match for each other.
An adoption fee of $125 applies to these puppie's adoption 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.
To learn more about Snookums, 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.Due to time restraints, we are not able to accept phone calls outside of our regular showing time at Petco on Chenal across from Target and Home Depot on Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00, but 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 Snookums and find out for yourself how wonderful and happy she really is at the DogsOnly adoption showings.
Please call Petco at 501-219-9907 during the adoption showing hours only or email Contact@Dogsonly.org BEFORE you come to visit Kissy to make sure that she is still available for adoption.
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.
