Story
We took in Sicario in January of 2021 he turned 4 years old in March of 2024. We have 2 daughters that he is amazing with and gives lots of cuddles. Sicario has high energy and can be anxious at times. We have not socialized him a lot with other dogs but the few dogs that he has socialized with he has not shown any signs of aggression. I work long days and Sicario needs a home with a genuine dog lover and has patients. He is house trained and knows a handful of fun tricks. We have his full pedigree and his paperwork.

Story
Hello, my name is Bryson. I'm two years old, my mom had me since I was 8 weeks old. She takes good care of me, she keeps me cleaned and groomed. I'm a siberian husky and I love to play with other dogs. I'm very social, I love long walks and running around outside. I love to chill on my downtime, I love getting belly rubs and petted. I love car rides with the backseat window down. My mom is looking for a loving family to adopt me because she can no longer keep me as her apartment is under new management and says she can't have any pets. It's heartbreaking for her but she promised to find me another loving home. I'm a loving dog and I don't howl...well only when the car alarm or fire alarm goes off lol. Will you open your heart to me?

Story
Winter is a 3 year old mixed husky. She is super delicate and caring. She loves attention and going for walks. She is also really obedient. The ex-owner was in a rush to get rid of winter due to the fact that she was going to give birth. At the time I had a lot of space and time so I gladly took her in. Unfortunately my landlord is not letting me keep her. For her new home I’m looking for someone that will give her all the attention she needs, the time to go out to parks and a huge space for her not to feel cramped

Story
Hi, my name is Ezekiel. I am a Terrier/Schnauzer mix. I am super smart and willing to learn. I am crate, housetrain and leash train. I get along great with cats and small dogs. I would love a fence in the backyard to run and play with my toys. I can also keep you company if you want to watch a movie on the couch or go for a coffee break and you can get me a puppy latte, or I can walk with you on trails. I am just a big teddy bear. This boy is super calm and very sweet, he will make a good companion. He would require a fence in the backyard to have space to run. If you are interested in Ezekiel, he is in Central Arkansas. He will come to you neuter and up to date on his shots. Transport is available for him through a transport company we use for a fee plus his adoption fee. If you are interested in Ezekiel, please apply at www.arkansaschihuaharescue.org

Story
Ester is a sweet, silly, and love bug that is looking for her wonderful forever family! This girl is a very affectionate dog who adores belly rubs, and lots of snuggles on the couch. She loves to play and will proudly parade with her toys around the house to get your attention. She loves to chase a tennis ball or play tug of war all day. She redirects easily and just wants to play all the time. Ester can be a bit shy at first, but she will adjust to you with time and lots of cuddles. She walks well on a leash. Because Ester is an active breed puppy that requires a fenced yard. This girl enjoys the company of other dogs and would do well with proper introductions. She also would likely do well in a home with a dog-savvy cat. She has not been tested around children. Ester quickly gets the hang of family life and settles into a home and a routine well. Ester is both crate and house-trained and her leash skills are coming along great – she’ll need her new humans to keep up this training with her. Ester is quick to learn, and does best with a patient, consistent approach. Ester is the perfect fit for a family looking for a dog who will always be up for fun and who will love her unconditionally! If you are interested in applying for Ester, please go to www.arkansaschihuahuarescue and fill out an application to meet Ester. This puppy is in CENTRAL ARKANSAS! Transport is available for a fee from the transport company.
