Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Spock is in a foster home in the country in Arkansas. He just wandered up one day, looking scared but also happy to find people. Unlike so many other dumped dogs, Spock was lucky because he had found a home where he would be taken in and cared for. The name Spock was chosen by his foster mom because his facial features reminded her of Mr. Spock of Star Trek. But, unlike Mr. Spock who always seemed to be frowning, this canine Spock always seems to have a smile on his face. He is a happy-go-lucky fellow who loves people, other dogs, cats and life in general! The one thing that Spock really wants and does not have at his foster home is to be an inside dog with a real family. He absolutely loves his foster mom and dad and he is so grateful for all they have done for him. He would love to be with them "all the time" and that is just not possible with all of the animals they care for. Spock used a crate while he was recovering from his neuter surgery and loved it! He would probably be housetrained in a short time if a crate was used. Spock does like to jump (usually straight up and down for his food and treats) and needs work on this and his other manners. He does walk on a leash but needs more work on this too. Spock is still has a lot of good years to enjoy (estimated date of birth is 9/15/09). He is very smart and learns quickly. He would be a wonderful candidate for obedience training. Spock weighs about 50#. Spock has been neutered and has received all of his vaccinations including rabies. He is heartworm negative and has been started on heartworm preventative. For more information on Spock, please e-mail his foster mom Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Canaan Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Canaan Dog / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Milton's owner had emergency surgery for a brain tumor and could no longer care for him. She had had Milton since he was a tiny puppy (his date of birth is April 13, 2007). Milton's breed is a real guess but he resembles a Canaan Dog although that is probably not what he is. He is a stocky boy, weighing about 55#. Milton had always been an inside dog until he had to be placed in foster care where he is having to be an outside dog because his new foster mom has so many inside dogs already. Milton really misses not being able to be with people and sharing their life. He just clings to his foster mom and looks at her with those big sad eyes because he can't be with her all the time. Milton is a super sweet boy - calm, quiet, gentle, loving, obedient, and smart! He is good with dogs, cats and children. Milton just wants a home again where he can be part of the family - laying at your feet or greeting you when you come back home! Milton has been neutered and is on heartworm preventative. He will be updated on his vaccinations and rabies before he is adopted. For more information, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). Candy is a beautiful little senior girl who is looking for her very own lap to sit in and live out her days (which could still be many!) in style. She is loving, affectionate, wants to be held or sit in your lap and will follow you everywhere! She is 14 years old. She is partially blind and partially deaf but she most definitely lets you know when she wants something. There is absolutely nothing wrong with her "barker" LOL. She does not appear to have any outstanding health problems, gets around just fine and expects to be fed whenever she feels that she is hungry! She uses puppy pads and goes outside but she still sometimes has accidents as well.

      Breed: Carolina Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Carolina Dog / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Newman is a stray that showed up at his foster home on a snowy, sleeting day in February 2012. Newman was a young dog when he arrived and his estimated date of birth is 4/1/2011. Because of Newman's tall erect ears and his coloring, he is thought to be a Carolina Dog mix. He is a medium sized dog weighing 40-45# and stands about 17-18" at the shoulder. He is a super friendly dog, both with people and with other animals. He gets along great with the other foster dogs and is very inquisitive of the cats. Newman has not been around children so it is not known how he would do with them. Newman loves to run, run, run. He would do well with a family who is very active, who will exercise him frequently and spend a lot of time with him. He is very smart and learns quickly. Newman would be a great candidate for agility training or chasing a frisbee. Newman does walk on a leash but needs more work on this as well as learning manners and basic commands. He recuperated from his neuter surgery in a crate but he should only be crated for short periods of time because he is a very active boy. Newman may have been an inside dog at one time because he did very well in his crate and he also did not want to soil his pen. Newman has been neutered and is up-to-date on his vaccinations. He tested negative for heartworms and has been placed on monthly preventative. For more information on Newman, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. THIS DOG IS LOCATED IN ARKANSAS. Jet is one of those breeds - you know - the breed that always gets blamed when bad things happen - a Pit Bull Terrier! But apparently Jet was raised right because he is a fine example of what that breed can be - loyal, loving, well-mannered, smart, gets along with other dogs, likes cats, and probably would be good around children. He also has webbing between his toes so is probably part labrador retriever. Jet belonged to an elderly couple and when the man died, the woman was placed in a nursing home and Jet was left behind to fend for himself. There were a couple of young pups who were abandoned as well and Jet took over their care, acting just like a mother dog would. He and the pups started making the rounds of the neighbors and found a nice couple who gave them food, water and shelter. They would have liked to have given them homes but the couple are gone a lot with their jobs and they also live right next to a highway with no fenced area. Jet is now in a foster home with lots of other dogs. He likes his foster home but Jet LOVES attention and LOVES to play - he would really like a home where he has a buddy to play with and can be part of his human's family. Jet has done wonderful on his crate training and house training. He needs more work on his leash training .... just needs someone who has the time to walk him and teach him what he needs to do. Jet is very smart, learns quickly and strives to please. It is hard to tell how old Jet is - he is well-mannered and reserved like an older dog and then he breaks out into playful behavior like a young dog .... so we are going to guess his age at two years old (estimated date of birth as 7-1-13). Jet has been neutered and received all of his vaccinations including bordatella and rabies. He tested negative for heartworms and has been started on monthly heartworm preventative. For more information on Jet, contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com
