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: Lhasa Apso-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso / Mixed (medium coat). Sweetest dog on the planet... 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: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Sprinkles (female) Intake date: 1/21/2017 Lhasa Apso Approx 8 years old 17.2 pounds Adoption fee: $125, which includes microchip and enrollment fee Good with other dogs: yes Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots, heartworm negative, fecal negative, cherry eye removed, two benign mammary tumors removed Health issues: Dry eyes (requires at least twice a day artificial tears) – sight challenged (she can see some, but is completely blind in the dark) Temperament: Calm, quiet, not needy, VERY sweet Intake reason: You ever meet a dog that just touches you to the core? Sprinkles is THAT dog. Sprinkles was taken to Caddo Parish Animal Services after her owner became pregnant. She was dumped like she meant nothing to the people she was loyal to for many years. On the other hand, we are thankful she was released because her dry eyes were not properly cared for. She came in with crusty hair around her eyes and mucus on top of her eyeballs, along with a bulging cherry eye. We were contacted by Paws 4 Life, the organization that partners with CPAS, asking for our help. We went to meet this sweet little darling. She was in a kennel sitting quietly. We took her to our vet. She’s been bred several times as is evidenced by her teats. Our vet spayed her and removed two benign mammary tumors. They corrected her cherry eye and started her on antibiotics for her eye infections. Her dry eyes went untreated for so many years that she has become partially blind. Untreated dry eye causes hardening of the film that covers the eyeball... and it eventually leads to blindness. It’s similar to a dog wearing dark sunglasses. She can see somewhat in the light... but is completely blind in the dark. Twice a day, we clean her eyes with a soft cloth and put artificial tears in her eyes to keep them moist. She sits quietly as we work on her eyes. It’s as if she knows we are helping her. She sits quietly most of the day in her large kenneled area... listening to the hustle and bustle of the rescue. A few times a day, we take her to the yard to walk around and get some sunshine and fresh air. She rarely goes potty in her area and typically waits for her outdoor time. We’ve yet to really see her be happy. Maybe this is the way she is. She follows us around when we take her outside... wanting to stay near us. She enjoys our touch. Whatever her past was, we’re not sure... but we are SURE that she will never want for anything ever again because we will make sure she only goes to the most amazing home ever. She deserves no less. Ideally, we want her to have a calm and quiet home... to fit her calm and quiet personality. If you feel that you can give little Sprinkles a wonderful life... we welcome your application. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

(came to us with Coccidia and hookworms... and very anemic... has been treated) Health issues: Mr. Muggles came to us very thin. He had Coccidia and hookworms and was very anemic. He was at the vet for quite a while because they couldn’t put him under anesthesia due to his anemia. He has since recovered and finally putting on weight. There are no long-term affects. Temperament: Mr. Muggles is spunky, sweet, quiet... social and friendly Intake reason: Mr. Muggles came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. He was in poor condition battling intestinal coccidia and hookworms. After more than a week at our vet being treated for the parasites... they were finally able to neuter him and remove his cherry eye. He’s curious, sweet, loves attention, social and friendly. Due to his lack of care and probably never really knowing where his next meal was coming from... he is grabby when giving him a treat, but we are working on that. He may have had a crappy past... but his future is looking so bright!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). NEW INTAKE: Jade - female - 2 years old as of February 2017 - 4.4 pounds - Chihuahua This is a sad situation. The owner of this little dog fell on some hard times but she paid someone she knew to watch her little dog until she could get back on her feet. She would check on her every week. Things got busy with her and a couple of weeks went by before she checked on her again... and when she di d, she found her in this condition. She immediately retrieved her and contacted us for help. She knew she couldn't give her what someone else could give her and only wanted what's best for her. Little Jade has been living in her own filth in a kennel as is evidenced by the urine stains on her nails and hair and patches of hair loss. She's skin and bones. She's currently at our vet and will get proper care... where she will also be spayed, vaccinated, heartworm/fecal tested, etc. We hugged the owner as she cried surrendering her... reassuring her that little Jade will be in the best of hands and we will find her an amazing home.... where her past experience will be a distant memory. More pics and information will be forthcoming in the next few days.

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. To apply to be approved to adopt, please e-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. Time may be of the essence if you are looking to adopt a specific animal. We do not reserve animals, unless and until we have approved your application, provided the animal is still available at the time we receive your application. The first APPROVED application we receive will be considered. We are NOT a first come, first serve rescue!! We adopt our rescues out to the RIGHT home, not just A home. Only responsible pet owners need apply. Applying to adopt does NOT commit you to the adoption until you’ve met the pet (unless you already have). www.RoadtoRescueLA.org

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). “I’m sight challenged and I bet you won’t even read my story... but if you do, please share me for a great home... “ 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. Jingle Balless (male) Intake date: 12/20/16 Poodle Approx 10 years old 8.2 pounds Adoption fee: $100, 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, shave down, Nexgard Health issues: has some sight challenge, healed broken jaw Temperament: Very sweet, social, quiet, but still has some spunkiness about him! Intake reason: What a sad little guy, but don’t feel sorry for him... he loves life! Jingle Balless came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. He was a matted mess with hair growing over his eyes. He sat in the corner of the kennel... shaking. We knelt down beside him and reached out to pet him. He sat so quietly as we gently reached out to pet him. We took him to our vet and they shaved off all the matting. When they were performing his dental they noticed that he had a healed broken jaw... which causes his lower lip to hang just a bit. We don’t know what happened to the poor little guy or what his life has been prior to coming to us, but we know that now his life is changed forever. When he came to the rescue, we noticed that he appeared to have some sight challenges. He is not completely blind, but he does have a hard time seeing. He quickly learned his way around our rescue, though. He loves to lie in the sun or on one of our many doggie beds. He’s a quiet little guy... but when he spotted the donkeys behind our rescue... we saw a side of him we’ve never seen! He barked and barked... so, take note!... he will protect your home from donkeys! LOL! Seriously, we take in many senior dogs and there is no better joy and reward then bringing a senior pet into your heart and home. Sure, you won’t have as many years with them... but the love and care you give to them in the time you do have with them... will fill your heart with more love than 15 years with a younger adopted pet. Give it a try... we know you’ll not regret it. If it’s not the right time for you... then please share little Jingle Balless. Maybe someone you know can give him what you can’t. Jingle Balless sends you his love and light for doing so! **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.

      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!
