Butters is a 2 year old Golden Retriever / Chow mix girl who was rescued from the Little Rock Shelter when she was just a puppy. She was adopted right away and has been with her adoptive family until recently.
Butters is having to be rehomed as she and the other female dog in the home do not get along well. Both girls are alpha and neither want to give up their throne. It's best for all for Butters to find a new home since she is the most recent addition. Butters does fine with other dogs out in public and does fine with the male dog in her home. She is house trained with a doggie door and is used to living with children. She has not lived with a cat so we're not sure how she would do with a kitty. She is protective of her home and family, but is very loving and sweet. She is not aggressive, just slow to warm to strangers. She has been shaved for the summer to help with the heat. She does like to have a cave to retreat to during storms, like under a sofa, but she does not have severe anxiety. She has no health problems and is up to date on all her vet care. She needs a loving family where she can be the only dog or at least the top dog. She is past the puppy and chewing stage so she's all ready for her new home.
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.
To learn more about Butters, 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 where and when you can meet Butters, 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 are not available to be visited outside of showing times. You can also meet Butters and find out for yourself how wonderful and happy she really is at the DogsOnly adoption showings.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Butters on an impulse. You should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give her the home she deserves. She’ll reward you with unbounded love and devotion, but you must be committed and serious about your decision to bring her into your life. Remember, this is an adoption, not a sale, and we’re very serious about making sure that both you and Butters are a good match for each other.
All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. Few 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.
