Chet is a young male adult Blue Heeler who was found as a stray on August 24th by a kind Samaritan. Chet went to his rescuer's home where he was taken care of, fed, groomed, and given oodles of love and attention. He went to see the vet and got a negative heartworm test and two thumbs up from the vet.
Chet's foster home was already a full house, so it was decided that Chet could come to a DogsOnly foster home while we look for a family and home for him. Chet is a wonderful sweet guy. He loves the company of other dogs - once he gets to know them. He loves to be wherever his human happens to be, and will lay down at your feet when you're sitting down. He was sleeping on a blanket by the bed in his foster home and always let them know if he needed to go out for potty by putting his feet on the bed; normally he slept all night though. He is attentive and learns quickly, so he would probably do well in a training class.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Chet 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 and needs. Chet will 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 Chet 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, 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.
IMPORTANT - Please call Petco at 501 219 9907 on Saturday between 1:00 and 4:00 PM only or email email@example.com BEFORE coming to visit Chet to make sure that he is still available for adoption.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL ADOPTIONS REQUIRE SECURE FENCING.

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 two 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 six 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.
DogsOnly relies solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 private 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. This does not mean that there is something wrong with any of our rescued companions, it just means we try to help the dogs that tend to 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 are euthanized.
