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! 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. Adoption application: http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-application PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE applying. 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

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.

      Breed: Maltipoo
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Maltese / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (long coat). DONATIONS REQUESTED... (credit card or Paypal to www.paypal.me/NR2R)... or call in your donations to our vet, Benton Animal Hospital, 318-965-2371. NEW INTAKE: Norman - male - 13 years old - 4.9 (very thin) pounds - Maltese/Poodle mix Reason for intake: Norman came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. We were notified by CPAS that his owner surrendered him and he needed a rescue. He was surrendered due to a "bum leg" which the owner indicated he thought he'd been hit by a car. A quick exam by the shelter veterinarian showed that his back leg injury was actually not an injury at all, but due to luxating patella (floating knee cap)... a very severe case that will require surgery. Poor Norman is not neutered, matted, desperately needs a dental (he has quite a bit of pain in his mouth area and is missing several teeth). He will also be heartworm and fecal tested. He's an old man but deserves whatever we can do to make his remaining years fulfilling and happy. WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY TAKING APPLICATIONS AT THIS TIME. Once he's been through all of the procedures recommended by the vet and is subsequently released by the vet, we will then post him for adoption.

She and her brother were surrendered because they could not care for them. The brother found a home and Chiclet came to us. She’s an adorable little girl... very sweet and submissive. We are working on the leash training and she’s doing well. She does ok in a kennel so long as she can’t see you. If she sees you she cries... but that’s typical of most dogs or puppies. She’s going to make someone very happy for many years to come. (fyi... she has a little nub for a tail. It appears she was born that way.) SPAY/NEUTER REBATE PROGRAM: Due to the age of this pet, he/she may not be spayed/neutered at the time of adoption. If this is the case, you will receive a $50 rebate coupon which will entitle you to a rebate of $50 once your pet is spayed/neutered and valid ONLY IF DONE ON OR BEFORE 6 MONTHS OF AGE!

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.

Update: Sonogram performed - pregnant - NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME NEW INTAKE: Brie - female - approx 3 years old - weight tbd - Lhasa Apso Brie came to us from the Tyler Animal Shelter in Tyler, Texas. When they first brought her out to us, we just KNEW she was pregnant based upon her over-sized belly and swollen teats. She was a bit nervous at first, but once we got her outside, she started wagging her tail and was so happy! We took her straight to our vet for an xray. Expecting she was pregnant, we were saddened to find out she was not pregnant, but actually was dealing with Pyometra (a serious and potentially deadly infectious and inflammatory condition of the uterus). If she had been spayed early-on, this would have never happened... just another reason all dogs should be spayed and neutered. Once she is spayed, it will resolve the condition. She is heartworm negative and we'll post more once she comes to the rescue. Before we start taking applications, we want to make sure she fully recovers.

This is not uncommon for small dogs and the reason we won’t rehome our dogs to homes with babies or small children.

We went to meet him at the shelter and while he was cautious with us as well, we decided to take a chance on him and we are so glad we did. What a joy he is!!

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.

      rescue
      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (long coat). *heartworm positive – read thoroughly 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 Vito (male) Intake date: 11/14/2017 Shih Tzu Approx 3-4 years 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 POSITIVE (see heartworm positive notes below), fecal negative Health issues: heartworm positive (see heartworm positive notes below) Temperament: Very sweet, social, friendly Energy level: Medium; can be playful or lap dog Groom needs: High; requires professional groom every few weeks and brushing in between grooms to avoid matting Biography: Vito came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. We went to CPAS to pull a dog we had tagged a few days earlier and saw this guy while we were there. He looked up at us through the long dreadlocks that covered his huge brown eyes. We knelt down to meet him and he slowly walked up to us with his head bowed the whole time. We checked the card and it said he was an owner surrender so we knew he didn’t have a stray hold. We talked to the staff and asked if we could pull him and they said “yes” and we knelt down and scooped him up. Once we got out to the vehicle in the bright sunshine, he started wagging his tail as if to say “thank you!”. The thick matting has been removed, he’s been neutered and vetted. He is heartworm positive and we are addressing it through the gentle kill method (read below). He’s a sweet little guy who does fine in a kennel, walks well on a leash and is a happy little guy. We’ll make sure his next home is a good home that will take care of him furever. Heartworm POSITIVE: 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! Vito is on (or has completed) twice a day Doxycycline for 30 days, and he/she has received a 6 month Proheart injection. The Proheart injection releases heartworm prevention into their system continuously for 6 months as opposed to the MONTHLY pill which releases prevention only when first administered. Coupled with Doxycycline, the gentle kill (or slow-kill) method is a safer alternative to the harsh immiticide (arsenic) treatment. 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 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. 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 (just like you would do for any dog). 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 (better yet, show this to your vet), 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!
