Howdy, my name is Ricky. I was rescued from the Fairfield Bay dog pound with my sister Faith. Faith has already been adopted, and she's really happy, but I'm still looking for a family to call my own.
I'm about 4 months old, and I'm a male Rottweiler Labrador mix. I'm partial to yummy treats of all kinds, but the lady at DogsOnly says I can't have as many as I'd like. I'm looking for a home that will give me unlimited treats, but I'd settle for a family that loves me as much as I'd love them, even if I only got one scrumptious treat a day. My life was pretty hard at first, but now I'm having a great time in my foster home playing with all the other pups and dogs. I can't wait to meet you.
Ricky had a hard start in life as a stray, but thanks to the kindness and tenacity of the great volunteers at Fuzzy Hearts Rescue, the best is yet to come.

Let 'em know how much their hard work and dedication is appreciated.
Note that visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Ricky 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. Ricky 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 Ricky are a good match for each other.
DogsOnly adoption fee ranges from $100 - $200 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, lea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and monthly preventative for all ages while in foster care, . 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 Ricky to make sure that he is still available for adoption.
The email contact to learn more about Ricky is firstname.lastname@example.org 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 die.
