PLEASE NOTE! Unless stated otherwise, our dogs and puppies are located in Arkansas, and transported to the north/northeast once adopted. We do occasionally have dogs/puppies placed in foster homes in the north/northeast. In the cases where the pet is somewhere other than Arkansas, it will be noted beside the name of the pet.

11/2/16 Rita is a wonderful little Rat Terrier that came to us as a stray, along with her 4 babies. Rita appears to be about 3 years old and is now spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on shots, and microchipped. Rita is house trained to use a doggy door so may need some patience and guidance to learn to tell you when she needs out. But she is eager to please and smart so she will learn quickly, I'm sure. Rita is a little bit shy at first, but very loving and sweet. She would probably do best in a home with older children or adults only, as the noise and quick movements of little ones may scare her. Rita is a gentle and very sweet girl and will make a wonderful little lap dog. She is located in Arkansas and will be transported to the northeast once adopted. For more info, email
