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.

    • Australian Shepherd-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Conway, AR, USA

      Breed: Australian Shepherd-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Abigail is a bit bigger than a typical Blue Heeler. Her foster mom was told that she was a heeler/shepherd mix. She is a stunning dog who is very friendly and playful. She weighs 55# and her estimated birth date is 4-1-15. Her owners wanted her re-homed because, in typical heeler behavior, she tried to bite their pant legs when they rode their motorcycles and they could not keep her from chasing cars. She lived on a busy country road and had been hit a couple of times, fortunately not seriously, but that did not deter her from chasing cars again. Abigail got along with the other free roaming dogs in the area. She is around cats in her foster home and pretty much ignores them. Her previous owners had small grandchildren who were afraid of her because she was so rambunctious. She probably would do well with older children who could play with her. Abigail is starting to settle down a bit now that she is two years old. She still has a lot of energy and loves to play but likes her quiet moments too. Abigail is still new in her foster home so she is having to stay in a crate when she is inside. She has adjusted nicely and will go in and out of it freely. She does walk on a leash but needs more work on this. It is not known if she is house-trained but once she knows the routine of her new home, this probably will not be an issue. Abby is very smart and LOVES treats so training her to new things should be fairly easy. Abigail has been spayed and brought up-to-date on her vaccinations and rabies. She tested negative for adult heartworms but positive for the microflariae so the veterinarian has recommended she receive a one-month daily dosage of doxycycline to kill the babies. She is also receiving a monthly heartworm preventative and should be retested in six months. For more information on adopting Abigail, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com Abigail

      Breed: Pekingese
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pekingese (long coat). Adoption Fee: 225.00. Honey is being fostered in Arkansas Adoption fee $225 Transport to the NE can be arranged for $125 - $150 Honey is an absolutely beautiful little Pekingese girl. She was found as a stray and was incredibly matted and dirty and in great need of a groom. She has had that now as well as all other vetting needed. She is spayed, up to date on shots, ear infection treated, heartworm negative, and ready for a wonderful, loving home. The reason that "no dogs" is stated is that Honey would much prefer to be the only dog and get all of the attention. She does fine with other dogs as long as they just leave her alone and don't harass her. She is a funny little girl - she loves to be petted and will growl the entire time you pet her, as well as wag her tail. She has never offered to bite - even when she was groomed or getting shots. I guess this is just her way of letting you know that SHE is the one in charge :)

      rescue
      Breed: Borador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Gabrielle got her name because she likes to jump on the doghouse and the wood pile to survey her territory. She is small for a Labrador, very agile and lithe, so was named after the famous gymnast Gabby Douglas. Gabrielle, also called Gabby, streaks and bounces all over her large backyard - nothing goes unnoticed! Gabby was a stray that wandered up to a country home. She is still a young dog with an estimated date of birth of 8-5-15. She only weighs about 35# and about 18" high at the shoulders. She is a hyper dog who likes to bark at the horse and anything else that moves. Gabby has two playmates - an Aussie/Heeler mix female and a Beagle/Terrirer mix female - and these three girls have the best time! She likes to investigate the cats and would chase them if they ran but will leave them alone when called. She is not around children in her foster home but probably would do fine with them. She is crate trained and leash trained. Gabby is having to spend her time in a crate or in the backyard because there is no room inside for her. She may already be housetrained but, if not, she learns quickly. Gabby is spayed and has received all of her vaccinations. She did test positive for heartworms and is currently on the slow kill method of heartworm treatment. For more information on Gabrielle, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. It was hard to find a breed to describe Tater (also known as Sweet Tater and Tater Tot) because of her distinctive eyes which are a beautiful, piercing yellow color. Her ears are also very different - looks like they tried to stand up like a Shepherd and then decided to lay down like the Labrador Retriever. Tater's date of birth is 4-15-16. She weighs about 50# and is the size of a typical Labrador. Tater has the boundless energy of a young dog and loves to play with her brother Bojangles. She is very reserved and shy of strangers so Tater will need a family who can work with her to bring out her personality and introduce her to all the wonders of the world she has not experienced. Tater has to be an outside dog at her foster home but she will only be adopted to a family who will make her an inside dog and part of the family. She is used to a crate and stays in one on an enclosed porch when the weather is inclement. Tater learns quickly and loves to please so her housetraining should not take long. She also will need work on her leash training. Tater lived in a pen with many other dogs. She is inquisitive about cats but will leave them alone when told to. She has not been around children but she probably would do well with older children. She is rather rambunctious and might knock down toddlers and small children. Tater has been spayed, tested negative for heartworms and has received all of her vaccinations. For more information on Tater, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

      Breed: Doxle

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Tootsie is a young female Beagle mix. Her approximate date of birth is 4-14-16 and she weighs around 20#. She has been spayed, is up-to-date on her vaccines and has tested negative to heartworms. Tootsie is an energetic little girl and will run in circles in front of you just to show you how happy she is. She's a treat freak and will do well learning new things by receiving treats as rewards. She is smart, wants to please and settles into new routines quickly. She loves people and would be a great companion for the right person or family. Tootsie is defensive when meeting new dogs. Her foster mom thinks she may have been attacked when she was a young puppy. Eventually she settles down and will play well with other dogs. She is curious of cats and will run up to them but does not hurt them. There are no children at her foster home but she probably would love children, especially older children that could play with her. If you are interested in adopting Tootsie, please contact Sharon Goff at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Bojangles has the most unusual yellow eyes and the ears of a Labrador and a hint of Shepherd in his coat. He has the sweet temperament of the Labrador and their boundless energy. Bo is very shy of strangers and takes a while to come around. He will need a family who has patience to socialize him and introduce him to all the things he has never been around. His date of birth is 4-15-16 and he was raised with many other dogs in a large pen. He is an outside dog at his foster home also and shares a pen with his sister Tater. He does well in a crate and stays in an enclosed porch when the weather is bad. Bo is smart, learns quickly and wants to please. Once he learns the new routine, he should do all right He is still a young dog - loves to play with his sister Tater and, of course, chew on things. Bo likes to investigate the cats but leaves them alone when told to. He would do well with older children but might be a little too rambunctious for small children.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Pepper is a small male black Labrador mix. He is recovering from a broken leg when he jumped down from the hood of a truck that he was chained too and got his leg tangled in the chain. He used to be in a large fenced area with a lot of other dogs but he was attacked by them and almost killed. So, poor thing, had to be chained to be kept safe. Now he is having to live his life in a crate because he can't be in the pen and he can't be chained. Pepper has never been socialized so he is shy and nervous around strangers. He is a sweet, loving dog who needs lots of patience to adjust and learn all that he's never been able to experience before. Pepper has been neutered and received his vaccinations. Another blow to poor Pepper is that he tested positive for heartworms, for which he is receiving treatment. Pepper is small, weighing about 40# and is approximately 20" at the shoulders. His estimated date of birth is 4-15-13. If you would like more information on Pepper, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com
