I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
BABY is a lab/chow mix found abandoned and starving in a remote rural area. We estimate her date of birth to be February 15, 2012. She currently weighs about 47 lb. and stands 24 in. at the shoulder. Her facial structure is very much Chow, but she doesn't have the overwhelming coat of a Chow. She is spayed, fully-vaccinated, de-wormed, heartworm negative and current on monthly flea, tick and heartworm preventives. Baby almost didn't make it. When found, she tried to run, but couldn't because she was so weak from starvation and parasite infestation. She has come a long way, but still has emotional wounds from her prior life. She is shy, especially around men. Although timid, she is non-aggressive toward people. She loves her foster mommy and regularly offers kisses and asks for belly rubs. She plays well with other non-aggressive dogs, but she doesn't like cats. Baby is well house-trained, knows how to use the doggie door and will sit for a treat. She is skittish about walking on leash or being crated, so she will need a home with a fenced yard. She needs a special human who is available, patient, and willing to walk softly with a dog who has been terribly hurt. She could be a wonderful, devoted companion in a quiet, settled environment and would flourish if she didn't have to compete with 18 other dogs for attention.

More information about Central Arkansas Refuge for Dogs
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 dozens 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.
Pets can be interviewed either at the refuge site in Paron, AR or at an agreed-upon location, by appointment only.
