Story
I got Frankie from a breeder in NC at 7 weeks, as a puppy I attempted to crate train him but he would just cry all night, after a few weeks I gave up. He is playful, loving, and very high energy. Frankie had a little brother which he warmed up to eventually, but he definitely prefers being the only dog. He loves all people and just wants attention. I’d like him to go to a home where he can get lots of attention and has lots of space and time to run around outside.

Story
Hi! I'm Ozzie. I'm 4 years old. Like most pitbulls, I'm a snugglebug and love to be close to my people. I play well with other dogs. I know a few voice commands and two hand signals. I will sit, stay, and lay when asked, but even quicker if there's a treat involved. My human crossed The Rainbow Bridge recently and I miss him a lot. While he was here, though, I loved when he took me on walks around the neighborhood and hung out with me on the couch. He always told me that I was a really good listener when I was on-leash. I love to play, run around in the yard (I'm really fast!), and smell all the smells. Do you have a backyard I can play in? If so, have your people call my people, we'll do lunch. ;-)

Story
Zeus is an 8 year old Pit Bull who has been with us since a few weeks after he was born. He is great around children and has experienced the addition of two babies to our family. He is very protective of his loved ones and will bark at anyone he believes is a threat. He is lovable and loves to cuddle. Long walks and playing are his favorite activities. Zeus enjoys playing with small dogs but sometimes has trouble getting along with dogs who are not neutered. Unfortunately due to moving and downsizing, Zeus is uncomfortable in this smaller space. He misses having his backyard to run around in. We are hoping Zeus will find a new home that is full of love, space and companionship.

Story
Ahoy my name is Ester. Arrrgh some say I look like a pirate, I say I look beautiful. I am part Terrier/Shepherd I love to run and play outside with my toys and litter mates. I can sit and shake but will need more training since I am still a puppy. I will be your best friend to go on walks or sit by your side as we watch a movie together. I can also cuddle with you in bed or go for a puppy latte. I can also take cute pictures as you can see by my profile photo. I am crate and house trained. I walk well on a leash. You really can’t go wrong with adopting me because my foster mom has put a lot of time and effort to making us the best puppies we can be for our forever home. She would require a fenced in backyard for her time to run and play. This puppy is located in Central Arkansas. Transport is available for this puppy with a local transport company for a fee plus adoption fee. If you are interested in Ester please fill out adoption form at www.arkansaschihuahuarescue.org

Story
Chance is a happy, playful boy who loves a game of fetch and playing with other dogs. He walks well on a leash around the neighborhood where he loves to sniff and enjoy the fresh air. He adores spending time in a fenced backyard as he runs to chase the tennis ball and play with his foster siblings. He knows his basic commands. He is a smart boy who learns very quickly. Chance would do well in just about any kind of setting. He is shy at first but once he warms up, he is just a wonderful boy. He has been fostered with multiple bigger and smaller dogs and does great with all of them. He plays nicely and takes cues from them. Chance is still a puppy with puppy energy so he will require exercise. Chance has not been around kids and, but we feel he will do fine once he warms up. Chance is crate train and is working on house training. Chance is neutered and up to date with his shots and HW negative. He is ready for his own family to love. Chance has had his adoption fee sponsored by a donor, so he is ready to go to his approved forever home. You pay no adoption fee, just a transport fee to the transport company. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application at www.arkansaschihuahuarescue.org. This puppy is in Central Arkansas.
