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. 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.

More About Chiranian 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.

      Posted Breed: Pekingese (long 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: E-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE requesting an application. Kono (male) Intake date: 7/6/2017 Pekingese DOB 5/14/2012 14.9 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, Capstar and flea preventive Health issues: none found Temperament: Very quiet, very sweet, calm Energy level: low Groom needs: high (will require regular brushing) Intake reason: Kono came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. He was sitting in a run at the shelter, terrified. We asked if we could pull him and they said “yes”. He was surrendered with papers which is why we have an actual birthdate. Usually, we just guess at the age based upon the teeth. He was so quiet and calm when he first came to us that we weren’t sure about his true personality. He’s been with us now for a little while and he’s still very quiet and calm. We want a home for him that is just like him... calm, peaceful and where he will feel safe. We are all in love with his little face. Somewhere out there is someone who will fall in love with him too. **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. (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. Muslow (male) Intake date: 7/26/2017 Yorkie/Dachshund mix Approx 3 years old 11.6 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 notes below), fecal positive for hookworms (treated and cleared), 6 month Proheart injection, Capstar and flea preventive on intake Health issues: heartworm positive (see heartworm notes below) Temperament: Very sweet, mild mannered, quiet Energy level: medium (Laid back... but can be playful too.) Groom needs: low-medium (occasional bath and brush) Intake reason: Sweet Muslow came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. We were notified about him from a rescue friend (who we named him after). He was found in her neighborhood and since we cannot take in strays, he was taken to CPAS. We assured her that we’d look for him and the next time we were out, his time was up... so we pulled him. He’s so sweet and so cute, but he’s not been cared for at all. There is no reason he should be heartworm positive when there is prevention available. He should also not be positive for hookworms (now cleared) if someone was taking care of him. He doesn’t have to worry about that anymore because now he’s in safe hands we will make sure that he only goes to a loving and caring home. If your heart and home are big enough for a little guy, we welcome your application. 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! Muslow is on (or has completed) twice a day Doxycycline for 30 days, and he/she has received a 6 month Proheart injection. The Doxycycline kills bacteria, which heartworms thrive on, thus weakening the heartworms and eventually they will die off, but it could take months and possibly up to two years before (s)he will be heartworm free. The 6 month Proheart injection (which is a heartworm preventive that lasts for 6 months) kills any heartworm larvae and sterilizes the adult heartworms so they no longer reproduce. While the “gentle kill” or “slow kill” 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 the dog continue a course of Doxycycline every 60 days (in other words, 30 days on... 60 days off... and so on for one year), plus the 6 month Proheart injection every 6 months or a monthly heartworm prevention. After one year, we recommend the dog be retested. If positive, continue the Doxycycline 30 days on... 60 days off method (plus heartworm prevention). If negative, just continue with regular heartworm prevention. 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.

She is content just lying around or being held. Is playful with other dogs.) Groom needs: low (occasional bath and brush) Intake reason: Sweet Bambi came to us from Bossier City Animal Control. We went there to view kittens to pull and while we were there, they asked us to look at a dog. They were so full and having to euthanize and she was next. We rounded the corner to see two beautiful eyes looking at us. We could not say “no”. She’s got very long legs... almost fawn-like. When she lies down and folds her legs under... she could be mistaken for a fawn. She’s had a crappy life. No dog should be heartworm positive when there is prevention available and no dog should be positive for hookworms and whipworms unless they’ve lived in disgusting conditions. Bambi is all clear of the hookworms and whipworms, but the heartworms will take a bit longer. She’s a gentle little girl and we want an absolutely AMAZING home for her. She deserves nothing less. If you think you are that amazing home, we welcome your application. 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!

The Doxycycline kills bacteria, which heartworms thrive on, thus weakening the heartworms and eventually they will die off, but it could take months and possibly up to two years before (s)he will be heartworm free. The 6 month Proheart injection (which is a heartworm preventive that lasts for 6 months) kills any heartworm larvae and sterilizes the adult heartworms so they no longer reproduce. While the “gentle kill” or “slow kill” 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 the dog continue a course of Doxycycline every 60 days (in other words, 30 days on... 60 days off... and so on for one year), plus the 6 month Proheart injection every 6 months or a monthly heartworm prevention. After one year, we recommend the dog be retested. If positive, continue the Doxycycline 30 days on... 60 days off method (plus heartworm prevention). If negative, just continue with regular heartworm prevention. 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. 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.

(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. Trillie (female) Intake date: 7/5/2017 Brussels Griffon mix Approx 4-6 years old 5.6 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, Capstar and flea preventive Health issues: none found Temperament: Very sweet, loves her toys, submissive (rolls on her back). She is a screamer! Read below. Energy level: low Groom needs: medium (will require brushing from time-to-time) Intake reason: Trillie came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. She was terrified at CPAS but we quickly pulled her. We noticed that she would scream when we would pick her up and she would mouth us (as if she was trying to bite us). We had the vet check that out, but it appears she is a fear-screamer. We’ve realized that we need to pick her up slowly so as not to scare her. Every day, she gets a little better about not screaming. She’s the sweetest little girl. She runs up to you and rolls on her back for belly rubs. It’s adorable! She is fine by herself, or in her kennel, or just playing with a toy OR just sitting in your lap for some attention. She’s an absolute doll who has stolen a lot of hearts at our rescue! **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

Giving a living, breathing animal that requires an emotional and financial commitment is NEVER A GOOD IDEA! Just don’t do it! So many animals end up in shelters because they were given as a gift to someone who was not prepared for the commitment. In any case, as much as she loved him, she couldn’t care for him.
