My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Anari, a delightful Australian Cattle Dog in search of a loving forever home. At 6 years old, Anari has already experienced some of life's challenges, but with the right environment and patient care, he has the potential to be a devoted companion.

Anari gets along well with other dogs, making him an excellent choice for families or individuals who already have furry friends at home. He understands the dynamics of canine socialization and is likely to thrive in a household where he can engage in play and companionship with other dogs.

Due to his past experiences, Anari tends to be a bit shy and cautious when encountering new people or situations. It is important to provide him with a calm and secure environment, allowing him the time and space to adjust at his own pace. With patience and understanding, you will witness his true personality shine as he gradually comes out of his shell.

When initially meeting new people, Anari may exhibit protective behavior by barking, almost like a guard dog. This is his way of expressing caution and fear, which can be mitigated through positive reinforcement and gentle handling. As he gains trust and becomes more familiar with his surroundings, his guard barking is likely to subside.

Once Anari feels comfortable and secure, he settles into his new environment and demonstrates his true nature. His shyness transforms into a loyal and affectionate demeanor, creating a special bond between him and his adopter. The more he is handled and shown patience, the more he will flourish and become an integral part of the family.

Anari would benefit from a calm and structured household, where his need for routine and stability can be met. Engaging him in regular exercise and mental stimulation, such as puzzle toys or obedience training, will not only keep him physically fit but also provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment.

If you are an experienced dog owner who understands the needs of a shy and sensitive dog, Anari could be the perfect addition to your family. His journey to overcome his fears and blossom into a confident companion will be a rewarding experience for both of you. Open your heart and home to Anari, and you will witness the transformation of a timid dog into a loyal and loving lifelong friend.

Additional adoption info

Our dogs are special to us, so we do check references and may require home checks for adopters. Most of our dogs come from kill shelters, dumped or abused. Some maybe needy or in need of training.

Our adoption fees vary depending on the medical needs of the dog and cover all shots up to date according to the age of the dog, all required testing for diseases, spay or neutering of dogs (age appropriate), micro-chipped and transport fees (if we transport the dog).

We required a submitted application along with 3 non-related references. Please be patient, we are an all volunteer organization, we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Go meet their pets

We have events in Central Arkansas area and New England area. We operate through dedicated fosters. If you are not in Central Arkansas we can send you video or even do face time to allow you to see how the dog interacts with other dogs and fosters. We also can do live video with Periscope application for smart phones.

If the dog is not in your area we can transport to a local foster in your area. Transport usually takes 3-5 days depending on your location and method of transport.
