Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). ~~FOR ADOPTION! INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLY: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Betty Lou (female) 9 YEAR OLD CHIHUAHUA – OWNERS WENT TO NURSING HOME – FULLY VETTED – 6.8 POUNDS - ADOPTION FEE $125 - Intake date: 1/31/14 Visit www.RoadtoRescueLA.org and click on “Adopt” for more information about Betty Lou or read below: I’m a tiny, very shy 9 year old Chihuahua. I weigh 6.8 pounds. I came to NR2R when a relative contacted us that I was tied to their front porch when the in-laws went to a nursing home. How sad that a beloved pet would be treated with such indignity. I’m thankful to now be at NR2R. I’ve now been spayed, heartworm tested (negative), vaccinated, given a dental, and dewormed. I must have lived in a really quiet home because I’m not used to all the sights and sounds of the rescue. Diana decided to take me home for a while to make me more comfortable and I go to the rescue once or twice a week to help me get used to that environment as well. I’m very shy, but will bond quickly and hard to whoever is caring for me. I stick like glue to Diana. I get along with other dogs and don’t mind cats. I’m not the playful type. I enjoy lap and quiet time, so ideally a home with an older person would be wonderful. NR2R doesn’t know and can’t guarantee that I’m housetrained and my adopter would need to understand that housetraining takes time, patience, trust, and consistency. Because I’m so tiny, I’m never to be left outside alone, ever! As with almost all the dogs at NR2R, young children or a very active household is not recommended. Only adopters with a responsible dog ownership history and excellent vet reference need apply. If you’d like to bring me into your heart and home, I promise to give you many years of love, companionship, and loyalty. (FREE MICROCHIP IMPLANT and LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP NOW INCLUDED WITH ALL ADOPTIONS) Enrollment of chip REQUIRED at time of adoption – cost $10.99 – enrollment to be done over the phone before the dog leaves the facility. $10.99 equals LIFETIME enrollment. **IMPORTANT NOTES: This pet is available for adoption through Ninna’s Road to Rescue, Benton, La.

More About Chihuahua Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      rescue
      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). FOR ADOPTION! (SPECIAL-NEEDS) Note: Only those with a responsible dog ownership history and excellent vet reference need apply. (For more pics, visit nr2r.petfinder.com or www.RoadtoRescueLA.org ) INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLY: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Mikey (male) special-needs/ dry eye Intake date: 8/29/16 Shih Tzu 7 years old 10.14 pounds Adoption fee: $170, which includes microchip and enrollment fee Good with other dogs: yes Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots, heartworm negative, fecal negative, dental performed, Nexgard (for fleas and ticks) Health issues: 1. flea allergy (will lose hair if not protected from fleas) 2. dry eyes (Mikey has chronic dry eye... which has gone untreated probably his entire life, causing some sight impairment. Basically he has trouble seeing in a poorly lighted area. Other than that, he sees fine. He must have at artificial tears AT LEAST twice a day, if not more, to keep his eyes moist to avoid further damage. He will need this the rest of his life. He takes them eye medicine easily.) Temperament: Sweet, happy, can be playful or lap dog Intake reason: Mikey came to us with Prince (his father, who has since been adopted)... when their owner passed away. Their owner got Mikey from a breeder as a puppy in 2009. Thereafter, the breeder asked if she wanted Mikey’s father, Prince, and she then took him in. Mikey came to us with fleas and missing hair. Now that the fleas are gone, his hair has grown back. The vet noticed quickly that he had trouble seeing and diagnosed him with untreated dry eyes. Chronic dry eyes, if left untreated, will cause blindness due to the film that builds up over the eye. It’s similar to wearing extremely dark sunglasses. Mikey has some sight impairment in poorly lighted areas. We treat him with artificial tears several times a day and we actually think he knows they make his eyes feel better because he allows us to medicate him without incident. Artificial tears are inexpensive and you can buy them at any department store. He’s a sweet little dog and we all adore him and want to make sure he goes to a home where his needs will be addressed for the rest of his life. We welcome adopters who have had experience with a dog with dry eyes because they will understand the importance of treating him and keeping his eyes moist. Contact your vet before applying if you have any concerns or questions about living with a pet with chronic dry eyes. This little guy is amazing and so PRECIOUS! **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever! We only rehome our dogs to adopters that plan to have them as inside dogs and part of the family! We do allow adopters with doggie doors, provided there is SECURE fencing. There is no exception to this rule! *NO SMALL CHILDREN!! As with almost all the dogs at NR2R, young children or a very active household is not recommended. Many of our dogs come to us BECAUSE of small children, thus we do not rehome our dogs to homes with babies or young children. Even if the children are older, it would depend on the child AND the parent or parents. *We do not guarantee that any of our adoptable dogs are housetrained. While most should be easily trained, keep in mind that they live in a rescue where they have access to the outdoors all day and are inside at night. Even if they were surrendered to us as housetrained, it doesn’t mean they will automatically be housetrained in your home. Housetraining them should be easy in the right home with time, patience, and consistency. *We do not guarantee the age, health or temperament of any of the dogs we rehome. Many of the dogs we take in come from animal control and rarely do we have histories and even when we do, many times the histories are inaccurate. *Only adopters with a responsible dog ownership history and excellent vet reference need apply. If you bring this pet into your heart and home, you will receive in return many years of love, companionship, and loyalty. That’s our guarantee.

For the perfect dog, please visit your nearest department store kid section where stuffed animals are sold. (For more pics, visit nr2r.petfinder.com or www.RoadtoRescueLA.org) INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLY: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Big Red (male) Intake date: 9/8/16 Pomeranian Approx DOB 9/8/2011 14.8 pounds Adoption fee: $170, which includes microchip and enrollment fee Good with other dogs: yes Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots, heartworm POSITIVE (see heartworm notes below), fecal negative, preventive for fleas/ticks Health issues: heartworm positive (see heartworm notes below) Temperament: Happy, social, playful, friendly! Intake reason: Big Red came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. He was adopted from them about a year ago. He was heartworm negative. He was returned recently claiming that they didn’t have time for him anymore and they returned him heartworm positive. As a result, CPAS could not put him in adoptions. They contacted us for help and we went to meet him. Despite his size, he made such an impression, we just had to pull him. He weighs 14.8 pounds, which doesn’t seem like a lot, but he looks so much bigger... probably due to his beautiful coat! Big Red is a playful, happy, social guy. He’s so much fun. He loves to fetch toys and play with the other dogs. He responds well to correction and is such a good boy! He will follow you around. He just wants to be with his people and if he’s not with his people, he wants to play with the other dogs. What a catch for one lucky adopter! Heartworms: Don’t let heartworms discourage you from adopting a heartworm positive dog! We have tons of examples of dogs adopted and then ultimately testing heartworm negative following our instructions! Big Red is on (or has completed) twice a day Doxycycline for 30 days, along with monthly heartworm preventive. The Doxycycline kills bacteria, which heartworms thrive on, thus weakening the heartworms and eventually they will die off, but it could take months before (s)he will be heartworm free. The monthly heartworm preventive (which ALL dogs need anyway) kills any heartworm larvae and sterilizes the adult heartworms so they no longer reproduce. While this method does take longer than traditional harsh veterinary treatment, we prefer this method because there is less risk, it is not as harsh on the dog and the dog does not have to be confined for up to two months during the treatment. We recommend that after 12 months, the dog be re-tested for heartworms and if still positive, (s)he be placed back on Doxycycline for another 30 days (if recommended by your vet) and of course you must continue heartworm preventive for the rest of their life (even if the dog tests negative). We do require that any interested adopters understand heartworms. They must also agree to continue our method of treatment or, if they wish, they can opt for traditional veterinary treatment; however they cannot choose to do nothing and we do require an agreement/contract be signed that the adopter will continue with a plan to rid him/her of the heartworms. We highly recommend that you discuss this with your veterinarian BEFORE applying, as some vets will ONLY do the traditional veterinary treatment... (which is poison). **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever! We only rehome our dogs to adopters that plan to have them as inside dogs and part of the family! We do allow adopters with doggie doors, provided there is SECURE fencing. There is no exception to this rule! *NO SMALL CHILDREN!! As with almost all the dogs at NR2R, young children or a very active household is not recommended. Many of our dogs come to us BECAUSE of small children, thus we do not rehome our dogs to homes with babies or young children. Even if the children are older, it would depend on the child AND the parent or parents. *We do not guarantee that any of our adoptable dogs are housetrained. While most should be easily trained, keep in mind that they live in a rescue where they have access to the outdoors all day and are inside at night. Even if they were surrendered to us as housetrained, it doesn’t mean they will automatically be housetrained in your home. Housetraining them should be easy in the right home with time, patience, and consistency. *We do not guarantee the age, health or temperament of any of the dogs we rehome. Many of the dogs we take in come from animal control and rarely do we have histories and even when we do, many times the histories are inaccurate. *Only adopters with a responsible dog ownership history and excellent vet reference need apply. If you bring this pet into your heart and home, you will receive in return many years of love, companionship, and loyalty. That’s our guarantee. Other notes: This pet is available for adoption through Ninna’s Road to Rescue, Benton, La. We are 501c3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to rescue small-breed dogs and a handful of cats and to re-home them into RESPONSIBLE and CARING forever homes.

He’s going to make someone very happy for a long time to come. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

      rescue
      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Schnauzer / Mixed (medium coat). FOR ADOPTION! Note: If you are looking for the perfect dog, we won’t have what you are looking for. For the perfect dog, please visit your nearest department store kid section where stuffed animals are sold. (For more pics, visit nr2r.petfinder.com or www.RoadtoRescueLA.org) INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLY: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Axel (male) Intake date: 8/12/16 Poodle mix Approx 3-4 years old 7.6 pounds Adoption fee: $170, which includes microchip and enrollment fee Good with other dogs: yes Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots, heartworm POSITIVE (see heartworm comments below), fecal positive for hooks (treated), dental performed, Nexgard (for fleas and ticks) Health issues: Heartworm POSITIVE (see comments below) Temperament: Friendly, happy and sweet! Intake reason: Axel came to us from Bossier City Animal Control. Wherever he came from he was not cared for at all. He came to us with hookworms (treated) and strong heartworm positive, meaning whoever had him didn’t take care to keep him on heartworm prevention or get him to a vet, where they would find he had hookworms. He has been treated for the hookworms, but the heartworm issue is a different story and we explain our method below. Despite his past, he’s a sweet boy. He’s active and playful. Ideally, we’d like a home for him where he will get attention and love because we feel that he really hasn’t had a lot of that. While he’s happy most of the time, there is some sadness in his eyes. While he was kennel-quarantined during his treatment for hookworms, he was so quiet you barely knew he was there. He’s just a sweet boy with a lot of love to give someone who is willing to give it back. Heartworms: Don’t let heartworms discourage you from adopting a heartworm positive dog! We have tons of examples of dogs adopted and then ultimately testing heartworm negative following our instructions! Axel is on (or has completed) twice a day Doxycycline for 30 days, along with monthly heartworm preventive.

      rescue
      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). FOR ADOPTION! (For more pics, visit nr2r.petfinder.com or www.RoadtoRescueLA.org) INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLY: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Miles (male) Intake date: 11/21/15 Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix 5-7 years old 5.4 pounds Adoption fee: $140, which includes microchip and enrollment fee (ask about our senior citizen discount!) (Special-needs: Adoption fee waived to excellent home!) Good with other dogs: yes Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots, heartworm negative, fecal negative, dental performed Health issues: His front right paw turns out. Our vet determined he was born this way. It does not hinder him in any way. Temperament: Bossy! Intake reason: You may be wondering why it’s taken us a month to post official adoption photos of Miles. He originally came to us on 11/21/15, from Caddo Animal Control. When he first came to us, he was acting unpredictably. One minute he would want you to pet him... the next minute he was ready to bite you. We felt that we didn’t want to post him for adoption until he got more comfortable at our rescue and so we could further evaluate his temperament. He has never shown this behavior with Ninna, although she has witnessed him doing it with other volunteers. Over the past few weeks, he’s calmed down a lot, but he is very bonded with Ninna. It appears that he will bond closely with one person. For that reason, we are looking for a home for him with one adult and and no children. He’s fine with other dogs, but does have a problem with dogs that are rambunctious. Ideally, he would like a home with other dogs, but dogs that are calm. We believe he’s had to claim his space over the years due to his tiny size. When we leave the rescue, he gets very upset... barking, barking, barking. He wants to be with his human... so, ideally, a home where the owner is home more often that not is best. He is not destructive when we are gone, so we don’t believe this is separation anxiety. We believe it’s more that he is mad we are leaving. So, in the end, he’s a quirky, demanding little turd... that wants a quirky, patient, forgiving and understanding adopter. If that’s you and you are an excellent pet owner... we’d be willing to waive the adoption fee. **IMPORTANT NOTES: All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!
