Story
Meet Lettie! She was found with her sister, Lottie. They are believed to have been abandoned out in the county. They were so lucky that a good samaritan brought them to us! Their love for each other is incredible. They are inseparable and the sweetest old ladies around. They love a good chew toy and a nice, comfy bed. Lettie and Lottie are finally ready to find their retirement home! Their ideal home would be a quiet, calm home where they can relax for the rest of their days! If you would like to meet this dynamic duo, please submit an adoption application and we will contact you!All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped and heartworm tested prior to adoption. We can not guarantee if a dog will be good with children, dogs or cats. If you currently have a dog a meet & greet will be required. To do this safely and effectively your dog will need to be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations prior to approval of a dog adoption through Boone Area Humane Society.***Adoptions are by appointment only, please fill out an application and someone will be in contact with you***All dogs are heart-worm tested, spayed/neutered, microchipped and have age appropriate vaccinations.***All animals have been spayed/neutered, have been tested for heartworm/feline leukemia, have had age appropriate vaccinations, been dewormed, is on flea and parasite prevention and has been microchipped.

Story
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.2/24/24 Still available! 1/14/24 We need to know why this very handsome boy hasn't had any interest in the year that we've had him listed. This dude is special. He is really everything you could want in a companion. He is kind. Loving. Affectionate. Great with other dogs. Good with cats, too. Loves all people, including kids. Mookie (formerly Snoopy but we have changed his name because we have another Snoopy) is all the things. He is about 1 1/2-2 years old and he weighs 75 lbs. That's 75 pounds of squishy love. He is house trained, crate trained, and walks well on leash (he pulls a little because he is eager to explore his world, but this is something he's working on). He enjoys car rides so if you want an adventure buddy, Mookie is your boy! There is nothing bad we can find about him... so why has no one wanted him? Is it because he's a pit bull (mix)? He promises not to hold your heritage against you, no matter what it is, if you'll promise to do the same for him. He doesn't know his breed scares some people, he just knows that he loves everyone. Is there someone that can look past his breed and see him for the giant, loving, squeezable boy that he is? If you might be that person, please reach out! He has waited long enough. It's time for him to find his family and start the rest of his life. Mookie available for adoption or foster. Give him a chance and you'll be glad you did! **any negative comments about the pit bull breed will be deleted immediately. AASR does not tolerate discrimination of any kind. Located in Arkansas, but transport is available. Adopter must be able to pick up or arrange for someone to pick up for them at one of the following times/locations.
