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: Australian Shepherd-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Red Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Ginger is an unusual dog. She has the wavy hair of the Australian Shepherd, the body of the Red Heeler with a beautiful brindle coat and a white speckled ring around her neck that looks like a collar. Ginger is a young dog with an estimated date of birth of 1-15-16. She weighs about 40# and the height of a heeler. Ginger is a shy, reserved girl. She was a stray, hanging out at the local Dollar General Store. Several people had tried to put a leash on her but she had eluded their efforts until her foster mom tempted her with treats and was able to get a slip leash on her. Ginger is still very nervous around strangers. She has two other female dogs that she gets to share playtime with and probably incurred other stray dogs before she was caught. She is inquisitive about cats but will leave them alone when told to. She is not around children at her foster home but probably would do fine with them, especially older kids. Ginger is having to be an outside dog but does stay in a crate on an enclosed porch at night. She needs an inside home where she can be socialized and introduced to all the activities of family life. She does walk on a leash but needs more work on this. Ginger has been spayed, received all of her vaccinations and tested negative to heartworms. For more information on Ginger, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Terrier / 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 country home. She is still a young dog with an estimated date of birth of 8-5-15. She only weighs about 35-40# and about 18" high at the shoulders. She is a hyper dog who likes to bark at the horse and anything else that moves. Her new home needs to be in an area where her barking will not be a problem. 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-Pharaoh Hound Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Pharaoh Hound / 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 life the Pharaoh Dog 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 - she has not learned to "walk" on a leash but tries to run which results in lunging and abruptly stopping. 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: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Dalli (pronounced like Dolly) is a small dog, weighing about 15#. Her breed is a real guess. She definitely has the terrier bark and their hyperactivity but her long face suggests dachshund. She also has her nose clued to the ground on her walks. Dalli needs an active family who will take her on long walks or who has a secure backyard that she can race around and chase the birds and squirrels. She is a barker so needs a home where her barking will not be a bother. Dalli does well with other dogs. Not sure about cats but think she was introduced to a couple during her photo session and it seems she pretty much ignored them. She might knock down small children but she should be fine with older children. Dalli has been housetrained but does have accidents when she gets excited. She does fine in a crate. She does pull at her leash and needs more work on this. Dalli has been spayed, received all of her vaccinations, and tested negative to heartworms. For more information on Dalli, please contact Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Terrier / 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 21.4#. 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 does like to jump on you and her foster mom is trying to correct this but she will need more work on this issue. She also needs more work on her leash training. Tootsie apparently was scolded a lot when she was little and will cower to the floor and pee when she is being leashed or picked up. She should get over this as she settles more and more in her new home and she feels loved and safe. She loves to cuddle with you and loves to please. Tootsie never learned how to play with other dogs and likes to challenge them. So it is suggested that she be an only dog until she can learn how to get along with other dogs. Socializing in dog parks and in public should be closely monitored. 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

His coat is so soft you could just sit and rub it all day long. He is neutered and completely up to date on shots. He has a very sweet disposition and is very polite when asking for affection or taking treats from your hand. I have not had Henry around children but believe that he would do well with older children. This is one little guy that would be a wonderful addition to any household that loves dogs.

      Breed: Border Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Conway, AR
      Posted Breed: Border Collie (medium coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Boss is a purebred male border collie born on 1-9-2015. He is a beautiful boy and extremely intelligent as is typical with this breed. Boss is now two years old and never been trained in even the basics. He is being listed as special needs because he will need an owner very experienced with this breed to work with him and train him to be an awesome example of what this breed can be. The only thing that Boss knows to do is pace back and forth along the fence. Every now and then, he will break from his patrolling and play with the other dogs or get a drink of water. Shortly after his foster mom got him, her husband died and she has been unable to spend any time with Boss. Another reason Boss is listed as special needs is because he is heartworm positive. He has had eight months of the slow-kill treatment method. His new owner needs to be knowledgeable about heartworm treatments and will accept responsibility for his continued care. Boss has been neutered and is received his vaccinations at that time. He will be due for his annual checkup and vaccinations in April 2017. Boss gets along fine with the many dogs in his foster home and does well with the cats too. He was around small children in his original home. He does like to jump and gets very excited when he first sees you so he might be a little too rambunctious for small children.

      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

      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
