Jane is a 10 month old Akbash Anatolian Shepherd mix who was rescued from Little Rock Animal Services after her owner surrendered her. She was surrendered because her owner’s boyfriend didn’t care for her.
Jane is very sweet girl. She is typical for her breed being independent, intelligent and strong. Jane would do best with an experienced dog owner. One who is familiar with Livestock Guardian dog breeds and their nature. Jane is still a puppy and likes to play. She would need another larger sturdy companion so neither would be accidentally hurt. She is about 10 months old and weighs about 80-90 pounds. It is not uncommon for these breeds to reach 100-125 pounds plus when full grown. She will grow until she reaches the age of 3 but at a slower rate after the age of 2. This means she will require a strong person to be on the other end of the lead. Jane did live with livestock in her original home but is not considered an experienced livestock guardian dog. She would do best in a home where she can be considered part of the family and a not a yard dog. Jane has already started showing traits of being protective and a natural guardian. She definitely needs a secure fence to keep her safely at home.
Jane is an independent rescue supported by DogsOnly. She will be available to meet most every Saturday except for holiday weekends at the DogsOnly adoption showing at Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot until she is adopted. Showing hours are from 1-4.

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. An adoption fee is charged for Jane ’s adoption. Puppies are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Jane 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 that she deserves. She ’ll reward you with unbounded love and devotion, but you must be committed and serious about your decision to bring him into your life. Remember, this is an adoption, not a sale, and we’re very serious about making sure that both you and Jane 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.
