Dorothy is a young adult charming and very friendly Terrier Schnauzer mix who was rescued as a stray. Her rescuer took her home and then to the vet for a checkup and shots. She checked negative for heartworm, and received a clean bill of health from the vet.
Dorothy needs a home with a family that has no small children and lots of love to give. She needs a yard with secure fencing, and a privacy fence is preferred as she can jump fairly high. She needs some basic training, and someone willing to take the time to teach her and exercise her. Dorothy is highly trainable and very smart.
Dorothy is a loving little girl who would do best by herself or with a companion that is submissive. Dorothy loves to play tug- o -war, and to wrestle with a friend that is low to medium energy. She does need daily exercise due to her energy level. She has springs on her feet and can jump a good 4' in the air. Dorothy has typical characteristics of her Terrier side in that she is not aggressive, but often is oblivious to other animals personal space.
Dorothy loves a belly rub and following her humans or canine companions around. Dorothy is a HUGE cuddle bug. She likes to be close to her humans on a lap, and especially at bedtime. Dorothy needs someone who will allow her to snuggle and be cuddled- up close in bed.
Dorothy doesn't like to be moved when she is ready for a nap or sleep. She may not like other animals too close when she is on a lap or cuddled in her spot at bedtime.
Dorothy will make an awesome addition to the right home. She is a wonderful and happy girl. She is smart and curious, fun, and loves to explore. Dorothy will need occasional grooming, and is basically a non- shedding dog. She is house trained (at least in her foster home – her new family will still need to be vigilant and give her opportunity to get outside as often as is necessary and continue to work with her). She also does well on a leash.
Dorothy has had a medical and all of her shots and necessary puppy medications. She’s in excellent health. All she needs now is a loving family and a home she can call her own
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Dorothy 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. Dorothy 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 Dorothy 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 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 Dorothy to make sure that she is still available for adoption.
