Marcus is one of a litter of seven gorgeous German Shepherd / Lab mix pups, 2 girls and 5 boys who were born after a family rescued their Mom who was found as a stray in Central Arkansas.
Marcus and his brothers and sisters were born on the 12th of May, so they are still very young. Marcus’s mom weighs about 60 pounds so Marcus and his siblings will probably grow up to be medium to larger sized dogs. Marcus and the rest of the pups are very playful and happy pups. They weigh about 8-10 pounds now, but they are growing fast. They are all healthy and have been started on their shots. Marcus and his litter mates live with their foster family on a mountain top and the pups love to run and explore. They are typical pups who will need to be trained and brought up with love and socialization.
Marcus and his sibling pups need a family who will help them to grow up, and be sweet, well trained, and well behaved pups. They are small and cuddly right now, but in no time at all they will most likely grow to be about 40 to 60 or more pounds. They love to romp and play with each other. Marcus is going to need a large yard to play and spend time with his family, and preference will be given to those with secure fencing. They are typical puppies who will require a lot of patience, time, and training to grow into wonderful family companion.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Marcus on an impulse. You should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give him the home he deserves. He’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 Marcus are a good match for each other.
DogsOnly adoption fee ranges from $100 - $150 depending on the dog and helps to reimburse our expenses for all of the necessary vet care that we have provided 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 monthly preventative for all ages while in foster care, collar and 50% of basic training classes. The adoption fee does not reimburse for all our expenses and covers only a portion of most expenses involved in rehabilitating our rescues and returning them to health. Please keep this in mind when you are adopting a dog.
Our available rescues 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.
Email contact is email@example.com to learn more about Marcus or you can complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored links at the top or bottom of this page.
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 are euthanized.
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 Marcus to make sure that he is still available for adoption.
