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.

Activity: Chihuahuas can typically get sufficient exercise by playing indoors.
Country of Origin: Mexico

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.

He’d been living outside 24/7 with filthy black water, covered in fleas and matted. Apparently, the person who owned the dog moved out of the home leaving him behind and he landed outside. Thankfully, someone spotted him and his conditions and asked the owner if they could have him and they said “yes”. He ended up with our rescue friend and well, here he is. He’s super sweet and social. He craves attention, something he’s been lacking for a long time. We prefer a home for him where the adopter is home more often than not. We are looking forward to a very bright future for him far removed from his horrible past. **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. KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU HAVE VISITING GRANDCHILDREN AS WELL! Even if the children are older, it would depend on the child AND the parent or parents. *HOUSETRAINING: 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.

      Breed: Affenpinscher

      Posted Breed: Affenpinscher (long coat). *SPECIAL NEEDS FOR ADOPTION! 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: PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE applying: DOG APPLICATION LINK: http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-application Lula (female) Intake date: 9/14/2017 Affenpinscher Approx 2-3 years old 11.4 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, Capstar and flea preventive, x-ray performed (see health issues below) Health issues: Lula’s former owner expressed to us that Lula “attacks herself” but she had not been to a vet to assess the reason. We observed her and witnessed that she starts to growl and look towards her back end. Then she’ll bite at her back legs. Our vet took an xray and sent the xray off to be read by a specialist. It was determined that they could not rule out that she might have disc issues (back issues). This is not really a clear diagnosis, but we have found daily Vetprofen has decreased her episodes significantly. Her adopter needs to be willing and financially able to keep her on her medication and continue vet visits as needed or if it becomes worse over time. Temperament: Very sweet and social; lovable Energy level: medium; despite her condition, she runs and plays normally / she can also be a sweet little lap dog Groom needs: high; Lula will need grooming every few weeks and regular brushing in between grooms. She struggles somewhat with grooming and baths due to her issue; so patience is needed Biography: Lula came to us as an owner-surrender. It's a long story, but in short she was surrendered due to the owner's health and because of financial reasons. The owner had three dogs... one of which was her first dog. Lula and another dog came in after-the-fact after the owner rescued them from different situations. We were told that she rescued after her previous owner threatened to shoot her because “the dog is crazy”. What is so sad is that she actually has a condition causing her reactions and no one took her to a vet to find out what was going on. She is feeling much better now that she has daily anti-inflammatory / pain medication. She’s a cool little dog and has won the hearts of everyone at the rescue... dogs and people alike. We want a home for her where she will be number one; where she will be a priority and where she will be cared for and receive medical attention when needed. If you feel that is you, we welcome your application. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

      Breed: Mutt

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Schnauzer (medium coat). FOR ADOPTION! 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: PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE applying: DOG APPLICATION LINK: http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-application Emma Kate (female) Intake date: 9/16/2017 Schnauzer DOB 11/5/2010 25 CHUBBY pounds (she is on a green bean diet and on the road to being a slim girl) Adoption fee: $170, which includes microchip and enrollment fee Good with other dogs: selectively (does not care for anxious or dominant dogs) Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots, heartworm negative, Proheart injection done on 7/31/2017 (next due 1/29/2018); Bravecto given on 7/31/2017 (next due 10/31/2017) Health issues: Emma Kate drinks and urinates excessively. We had our vet perform every medical test available to determine if the cause of this is a medical reason and everything came back normal, including a diabetes check. Our vet suggested it is due to anxiety and suggested a daily anti-anxiety medication. We’ve noticed a huge change since putting her on the drug. She may overcome the anxiety once she’s in a home and can be taken off the drug; however, while she is with us, she will remain on the drug. Temperament: Sweet and social; can be dominant with dogs that are anxious or dominant; is used to getting her way (we are working on that). She’s come a long way since coming to us. Energy level: medium; can be playful, loves walks and car rides, needs a home that will take her on daily walks Groom needs: high; will require grooming every few weeks and brushing in between grooms Biography: Emma Kate came to us when her 84 year old owner fell seriously ill. The family (from out of town) reached out to us for help. The family admitted and we learned quickly that Emma Kate is used to getting her way. She’s had no correction for bad behavior. Since coming to us, she’s learned quickly that bad behavior has consequences and good behavior is rewarded. She’s a great dog; she’s just not had the right leadership. She LOVES going for walk and LOVES car rides. We’d love a home for her where she will be walked daily or multiple times a day. This will also help with her weight loss. Currently, we have her on a green bean diet and she is losing weight. She’s used to being the only dog in her home so she’s used to being in charge. She does fine around well-balanced dogs, but not so well around dominant or anxious dogs. We would love for Emma Kate to find a home that will love her as much as her mommy did. She’s only known one home her entire life and we’d like her next home to be her last home. If you think that’s you, we’d love to hear from you. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

They were abandoned at a home that was vacated by the residents and then taken to the Delhi shelter, which pretty consists of just a couple of outdoor kennels with tarps. Aubrey was in horrible shape. Missing a lot of hair, sores, secondary infections, etc. She’s unrecognizable now from the dog we took in. She’s had many litters in her lifetime and we think Angel may be one of her offspring. Aubrey is so incredibly sweet and submissive. We just can’t say enough good things about her. She absolutely causes no drama and avoids drama caused by other dogs. She is quiet, sweet, playful, and loving in every way. She does have some patches of rough skin where the hair may never grow back due to her former owner’s neglect. We want a home for her where someone will see past her rough patches of skin and see the true beauty of this innocent little girl who despite her past... still loves humans. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

(For more pics, visit nr2r.petfinder.com or www.RoadtoRescueLA.org) INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLY: PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE applying: DOG APPLICATION LINK: http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-application Pineapple (female) Intake date: 9/13/2017 Chihuahua/Pug mix Approx 5-6 years old 10 chubby 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 Health issues: none found Temperament: Sweet, social, lovable, kissable, huggable, adorable Energy level: low; lap dog Groom needs: low; occasional bath and brush Biography: Pineapple came to us from Bossier City Animal Control. She was a favorite of the staff and they reached out to us to pull her. Upon picking her up... she immediately gave kisses and we were off. She gets along with everyone... people and animals. She loves getting attention from the volunteers but is not overly needy. She’s just as fine in someone’s lap or lying in a dog bed or playing outside with the other dogs. She’s going to make someone very very happy! **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. KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU HAVE VISITING GRANDCHILDREN AS WELL! Even if the children are older, it would depend on the child AND the parent or parents. *HOUSETRAINING: 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.

Angel (female) Intake date: 8/21/2017 Dachshund mix Approx 1-2 years old 10.8 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 negative, fecal negative, skin scrape (due to hair loss – negative; diagnosis – flea allergy/living conditions) Health issues: none found Temperament: Timid, shy, submissive – will need patient home Energy level: low-medium (not hyper, laid back – can be playful or lap dog) Groom needs: low Biography: Angel and Aubrey (also available for adoption) were seized by animal control in Delhi, Louisiana, after their owners moved away and abandoned them. We believe Angel may be the daughter of Aubrey. She and Aubrey have had crappy lives as is apparent from their outward condition. The missing hair is due to flea allergies and likely unclean living conditions. Their fleas are gone now and they are now in a sanitary and clean environment and their hair is already growing back. Angel is timid. We suspect she hasn’t had a lot of human contact. She is not mean in any way; she is simply afraid. We are working to build her confidence towards humans. She really wants to trust... she’ll just need a patient home. She has the most adorable big brown eyes and the cutest little underbite. She enjoys her walks on a leash; enjoys playing with the other dogs; or lying in her doggie bed snoozing away. If you have the ability to help a little shy girl come out of her shell, we’d love to hear from you. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). FOR ADOPTION! (For more pics, visit nr2r.petfinder.com or www.RoadtoRescueLA.org) Adoption application: http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-application PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE applying. 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!

Joanie (female) Intake date: 8/2/2017 Pomeranian mix DOB approx March 2011 14.6 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 negative, fecal negative, skin scrape (done due to missing hair – negative), Bravecto (3 month flea preventive) Health issues: flea allergies (may require allergy shot every few months; will require monthly flea preventive) Temperament: very sweet and social Energy level: low-medium Groom needs: medium (will require occasional brushing to avoid matting) Intake reason: Joanie came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. She came to us with quite a bit of missing hair and skin issues. We had our vet perform a skin scrape to rule out any mange and it was negative. We have addressed the fleas and given her a 3 month Bravecto (which tends to work really well on dogs with flea allergies). Joanie is a sweetheart. She does tend to want to guard the food bowls. She may have had lots of competition where she came from or none at all. It’s not severe however. She a sweetheart looking for her furever home. She’ll make a great little companion for one lucky adopter. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!
