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.
2/22/2017 Sadie is a very sad girl who is desperate for a home. She was pulled from a high kill shelter, where she came in as a stray. She was very pregnant and very sweet. We found a foster home located near the shelter (in Louisiana) who picked her up and took her to their house. Soon after that she had 9 beautiful puppies. Sadie was such a loving and devoted mama! We don't know why but sadly, her puppies died one by one. Every day one or two more died. No one could figure out why but it is thought that Sadie suffered some trauma while pregnant, in addition to being malnourished, which probably was a contributing factor. Sadie had been doing fine with the other dogs in the foster home. Until her last puppy died. It's as if something in her mind snapped. She became very aggressive to other dogs at that point and has been that way since then. We have contemplated putting her to sleep due to her dog aggression but I just can't do that without giving her a chance. She is good with people. She is pretty independent but likes attention and affection. She could use some training to learn not to jump up on people to get their attention. Sadie deserves a chance at a good life. She has never had it good before, I am sure. She loves - I mean LOVES - car rides. She does have some separation anxiety but has successfully overcome that while being in rescue. Sadie needs a home who will understand her need to be the only dog. She will not be a candidate for dog parks or visits with other dogs. We believe Sadie is about 4 years old. She has been spayed and is positive for heartworms but has been on the slow kill treatment method. She is located in Arkansas and will be transported to the northeast once adopted.
