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.

      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (medium coat). “If I could tell my story... “ “If I could tell my story... this is probably how it goes. I was purchased from a breeder many years ago. My new family doted on me like crazy. I wore dresses and had bows in my hair and went everywhere with my humans. Over the years, I noticed something changing. I no longer seemed to be important. I would watch my humans come and go but no longer was I getting the attention and love I used to get. Days went by... then months... then years. Then I noticed I couldn’t see so well... and as my eyesight faded so did my view of my humans. Then I noticed a flea... then two.. then three... then hundreds. I scratched and scratched... but nothing relieved me from them. Then I started losing my hair and weight. I couldn’t see my humans anymore, but I was wondering why no one was noticing what was happening to me! Please help me! Then one day, I took a ride. Yay... a ride! I’m so excited! My human handed me off to a stranger and I heard my human say she couldn’t deal with my skin issues anymore and I was an inconvenience. I’m so sad! What did I do wrong? The kind lady that my human handed me to (who I found out was Angela at Bossier City Animal Control)... took a picture of me. She sent that picture to someone else and said “can you take her?” The lady responded “sending Tommy right now”. Then this man showed up and he took me to another place... where they stuck needles in my legs and gave me a pill and all of a sudden... all the fleas were gone! After months and years of trying to get rid of them myself... they were gone! All of them! But they had already done a lot of damage to me. I am missing a lot of my hair... and where there is hair, it’s very thin. They also say I’m very anemic. I’m not sure what that means, but I get a really tasty pill every day that they say is supposed to make me better and then they can give me vaccinations to protect me from other diseases. After they finished with me, I went to a place where I met a bunch of really nice people who give me awesome food and they say I eat like a horse. I have soft clean bed to lay my head and tiny frail body. What is this place? I just want to stay here forever! My story is not unlike many other pets who live with owners who at one time loved and adored them... but as we age... we become disposable. We should be family and when we become seniors and when we need our humans the most... they should be there for us... not consider us a burden. Despite my past and what my human did to me... I am now a happy little girl... who loves to be held and cuddled and adored and most importantly... FED! I love food! Now that you’ve read my story... below are some things you need to know.” Love, Pixie 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: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Pixie (female) Intake date: 3/17/2017 (I came to NR2R on Ninna’s birthday!) Pomeranian 12 years old 3.8 (very thin) pounds Adoption fee: $100, which includes microchip and enrollment fee Good with other dogs: yes Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots (soon), heartworm negative, Capstar and flea preventive, xray and bloodwork Health issues: slight heart murmur, anemic (but getting daily vitamins to boost iron levels... and will be retested before leaving and vaccinated), cataracts (blind) (fyi... she CAN hear!) Temperament: Very sweet, quiet for the most part... but will bark to get your attention. Confident little girl. **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.

Note: Only those with a responsible dog ownership history and excellent vet reference need apply (no exceptions).

PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Clovis (male) Intake date: 3/6/2017 Pomeranian Approx 3 years old 6.4 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 POSITIVE, dewormed, Capstar and flea preventive Health issues: heartworm positive Temperament: Scared, submissive, sweet Intake reason: On March 6, 2017, we rescued 8 Pomeranians from an elderly couple in south Louisiana who could no longer care for them. They had always lived outside. They were matted and covered in fleas. We immediately delivered them to our vet. Once all were vetted, they all visited our groomer at the vet clinic. Our groomer was able to brush and cut out the matting on most of the dogs. Clovis is scared, but will not bite or growl. We are going to be very selective with where these dogs go. We want them to be in a home where they will not have to compete with a bunch of other dogs. We want them in a home where they will receive one-on-one attention and be doted on for the rest of their lives. If you require a housetrained dog… do not apply. If you are prepared to take one of these precious babies into your home and work to make them feel loved and cared for… and you have a responsible dog ownership history and an excellent vet reference… you are welcome to apply. Heartworm positive: All the Pomeranians we rescued in this group are heartworm positive. They are far too fragile to go through the aggressive immiticide treatment. They are currently undergoing the gentle kill method, which includes twice-a-day Doxycyline for 30 days (you will receive the remainder of the 30 day supply), along with monthly heartworm prevention (Heartgard). You MUST agree to continue our method of GENTLE KILL! You MUST discuss this with your veterinarian BEFORE applying! The Doxycycline kills bacteria, which heartworms thrive on, thus weakening the heartworms and eventually they will die off, but it could take months (sometimes years) 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. We do require an agreement/contract be signed that the adopter will continue with a plan to rid him/her of the heartworms. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

He was heavily matted. His tail was so matted it dragged the ground. He had to have a shave down, but once his hair starts growing back out, he will be beautiful. He loves to play ball, but when he brings it back to you, he growls when you try to get it from him. Silly boy! He does well in his kennel... only barking if he is alarmed. He’s been through a lot and while he’s only been with us for a short time, we’ve already seen that he’s coming out of his shell and showing a happy, friendly personality. We first noticed him at CPAS, in a kennel with several other dogs. He stood out because he came right up to us for attention.

      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! 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! As with almost all the dogs at NR2R, young children or a very active household is not recommended. We do not guarantee housetrained on any of our adoptable dogs. 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. Housetraining them should be easy in the right home with time, patience, and consistency. 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.
