DogsOnly Feature Companion


Ella (front) and her mother

Ella is a 1/2 Great Pyrenees 1/2 Anatolian Shepherd. Ella’s mother was given away for free to a home where she was abandoned in a back yard without any contact, care, or love. Not surprisingly Ella’s mother had not been spayed so it wasn’t long before she had puppies with a Great Pyrenees who lived in the same yard. Sadly the father has since died from neglect. Only Ella and 2 of her sisters survived, and the rest of the litter soon died of neglect too.


Ella and her two sisters are now 15 months old. They are a little shy because until they were taken in by a rescuer they have never left their back yard. Ella had never been to the vet, and had never met a person other than her ‘owner’ who only showed up briefly to throw some food out for them to eat. We are not sure why, but probably due to oxygen starvation during birth, Ella has suffered a stroke. Ella was checked out thoroughly and her vet tells us that other than a permanent grin on her face, Ella has completely recovered and should do just fine. The young pups were living a life of social deprivation through no fault of their own, and eventually became suspicious and fearful of people and other dogs.

Eventually someone learned of the girls and their plight and negotiated with the owner to take them away. It was a difficult rescue, because the girls was fearful and scared as they were dragged from the only place they had known and put into crates and driven away. No time was lost in getting them to a vet for a complete evaluation. They have been spayed, given all their vaccinations including rabies, dewormed, and heartworm checked (all negative!) All Ella and her sisters need now is some one to love them and show them how to live a good life.

Ella’s mother was just as little shy as her pups, but she was soon adopted. She has already learned to trust and love her new family, and is doing well. After all they have been through Ella and her sisters deserve to have a good home and a family to love and protect. Most dogs who have been abused or neglected become very attached and bonded to a new home once they learn they are safe and loved. These girls deserve a chance.

Their adoption fee covers all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions), rabies, microchipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes.

This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. 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. The only support we receive is from donations from the general public.

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.

Save a Rescued Dog.

If you don't find that special companion you are looking for in the DogsOnly rescue, rehabilitation, and re-home program then please visit Little Rock Animal Services, North Little Rock Animal Services, Sherwood Humane Animal Services, or one of the many other central Arkansas rescue organizations to save a rescued canine companion.


Who We Are is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all volunteer organization that specializes in the rescue and adoption of dogs and puppies in Arkansas. DogsOnly also strives to offer help and advice to any dog owner who is experiencing problems with their dog. We try to educate and inform in a friendly and constructive manner and if we are personally unable to help, we will do our best to find someone who can.

In addition to the work being done in Arkansas DogsOnly supports rescue efforts throughout North America by providing support and assistance to national dog rescue transportation groups.

The number of adult dogs and puppies that DogsOnly foster is very limited, so we strive to promote the efforts of other rescue groups and in so doing help prospective adoptees to locate their new family dog.

With your help DogsOnly saves lives in Arkansas.

Adopting a friend

A DogsOnly volunteer can help you determine just the right dog for your family and help you get to know them through adoption showings, home visits, and trial adoptions. An adoption application can be collected at one of our showings at Petco in Little Rock or you can fill one out on-line by visiting our website at There is a $75.00 to $125 adoption fee depending on the dog which helps us to cover the cost of their spay or neuter, shots to include all three rounds if adopting a puppy, rabies, de-worming on ALL dogs and puppies, heartworm prevention, and Frontline flea and tick treatments.
