Ronni is a female Mountain Cur found wandering in a rural area, starving. Ronni was taken into foster care in late July. She was in pretty rough shape but is now de-wormed, spayed, vaccinated, has been treated for heartworms and is healthy. We think she's 5-6 years old, so she's young enough to like regular activity, but mature enough to settle next to you and is past all the destructive puppy behaviors. Ronni is a sweet, extremely affectionate girl, who is friendly with all people she meets. She would do best as an only dog, as she prefers not to have competition for food or her human's attention. However, she could live successfully with a large, low-key male dog, who would allow her to be "alpha". She does fine with the household cat (who apparently is not viewed as a competitor). She is house-trained and crate-trained. She knows how to walk on-leash and rides well in the car -- just jumps right up into the hatchback. Although Ronni is not skittish, she is fearful of thunderstorms and loud noises. She likes to have as much contact with her human as possible. She loves being petted and hugged and greets exuberantly. Although she does kennel when asked, if allowed, Ronni would love to sleep in the big bed with you. She is a true companion dog, who wants nothing more than to be with her person and to be treated with kindness. For more information, please contact Janel Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Central Arkansas Refuge for Dogs has been approved as the local dog rescue site of the Paron Community Center in Paron, AR (a 501c3 organization). Paron is a small, remote rural community west of Little Rock, AR, where dogs are routinely abandoned. The Refuge believes dogs deserve better. They are not property. They are beings. During the last few years, we have found good homes for hundreds of abandoned dogs. Dogs at the refuge are not caged but congregate in large yards. They have an indoor home life where they learn house-training and crating for bedtime. All dogs receive excellent medical care and monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventives. If old enough, dogs are spayed/neutered prior to leaving the refuge facility. Adoption fees help to defray some of the costs of care.
