Flora is a 16 week old Akbash Anatolian pup. She was rescued from a high kill shelter in TN after her mother, father and siblings were surrendered by their owner breeder. It seems the owner bred her parents and then became overwhelmed after the pups arrived. They all went to the shelter. They were all pulled to safety and have since been adopted or taken in by rescue. Flora is the smallest pup of the litter and the only white pup. She is about 20 pounds and about 16 weeks old so although she is the smallest in her litter, she will be a large girl when full grown. She is very sweet and loving. She is a people dog and loves to be with her family. She has a medium coat and will most likely be about 80-90 pounds when full grown.
Flora is very friendly, social, and happy, but she will grow to be large sized dog so make sure you have the time to commit to obedience training.
Flora was rescued by The National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network (NASRN) which is a nationwide volunteer rescue effort, but they do not maintain shelters, and rely on regional volunteers and organizations like DogsOnly to help them rescue animals.
As with all Anatolians, secure fencing is an absolute requirement! Please don ’t be tempted to adopt on an impulse. Typical of theirs Anatolian Shepherd heritage, Flora could well live to be 15 years old, so you should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give her the home she deserves. Flora might be cute today, but in no time at all, she will grown into very large, energetic, and powerful dog. Bringing a very large dog like Anatolian Shepherd into your home will almost certainly involve a significant financial commitment, and will require some personal sacrifice on your part. For that reason we would prefer a family experienced with large breed dogs. Flora will 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 your puppy are a good match for each other.
Flora can be met in person at our weekly adoption showing at the West Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot. This is in the same strip mall as Old Navy and Shoe Carnival. Our showing hours are from 1-4 every Saturday except major holiday weekends.
IMPORTANT - Please call Petco at 501 219 9907 on Saturday between 1:00 and 4:00 PM only or email firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE coming to visit Flora to make sure that she is still available for adoption.

Due to time restraints, we are not able to accept phone calls but we always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs are available for a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process (local adoptions only). This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies under the age of 6 months 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. All of our foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, 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. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society.
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.
