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. 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.

Wants to be with her human. Intake reason: Butternut came to us from Caddo Parish Animal Services. They called us for help because she was growly in her kennel and they couldn’t put her in adoptions. We drove over that day and could tell it was all fake. She approached the front of the kennel... growling all the way, but her rear end was wiggling and tail was wagging. It was if she wanted to trust us, but wasn’t sure. As soon as we scooped her up... she was fine. We were told she was surrendered there because she was afraid of the other dogs in the home. She’s great at our rescue and not afraid at all; however, the dogs in her home may have been large... we’re just not sure. She will bark if she can’t get to her human. Once she’s with her human she is fine. In any case, she’s adorable, sweet, loving and waiting for her furever home. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

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!

    • Dachshund-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Benton, LA

      Reindeer gan...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). SEVEN PUPPIES IN ALL! 1 female... 6 males! Taking applications now. Ready to LEAVE the week of January 9th... after their 2nd round of shots. DOB: 11/17/16 Adoption fee: $250, which includes microchip enrollment fee, deworming, 2 rounds of puppy shots (to include Bordetella) and comes with $50 spay/neuter rebate coupon. CUPID is the ONLY female! The rest are males. Breed guess: Their mother, Dancer is a 15 pound Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. She was rescued from Caddo Parish Animal Services the day she started delivering puppies. She had already delivered Cupid, the only female, when we picked her up. The rest were born at our rescue and they have all been in foster, along with the momma, since then. They've been lovingly cared for the entire time. They are now eating food on their own and momma has completed her job. We do not know what breed the father is or how big they will get... but we suspect they will be under 20 pounds. We just cannot guarantee this. Also, momma's ears stick up so it's possible their ears could ultimately stand up. We also cannot guarantee it (if that's what you are looking for). We will process applications in the order received. You cannot apply for a specific puppy. If your application is approved we will schedule a day/time for you to come out and pick out a puppy and then we will reserve that puppy for you. We require a $50 non-refundable deposit at the time you pick out your puppy. To request an application, email roadtorescue@bellsouth.net. Please put in the subject line: "Reindeer puppy application". Thank you and please share these cuties!

      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Benton, LA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). FOR ADOPTION! (SPECIAL-NEEDS) 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. Mikey (male) special-needs/ dry eye Intake date: 8/29/16 Shih Tzu 7 years old 10.14 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, Nexgard (for fleas and ticks) Health issues: 1. flea allergy (will lose hair if not protected from fleas) 2. dry eyes (Mikey has chronic dry eye... which has gone untreated probably his entire life, causing some sight impairment. Basically he has trouble seeing in a poorly lighted area. Other than that, he sees fine. He must have at artificial tears AT LEAST twice a day, if not more, to keep his eyes moist to avoid further damage. He will need this the rest of his life. He takes them eye medicine easily.) Temperament: Sweet, happy, can be playful or lap dog Intake reason: Mikey came to us with Prince (his father, who has since been adopted)... when their owner passed away. Their owner got Mikey from a breeder as a puppy in 2009. Thereafter, the breeder asked if she wanted Mikey’s father, Prince, and she then took him in. Mikey came to us with fleas and missing hair. Now that the fleas are gone, his hair has grown back. The vet noticed quickly that he had trouble seeing and diagnosed him with untreated dry eyes. Chronic dry eyes, if left untreated, will cause blindness due to the film that builds up over the eye. It’s similar to wearing extremely dark sunglasses. Mikey has some sight impairment in poorly lighted areas. We treat him with artificial tears several times a day and we actually think he knows they make his eyes feel better because he allows us to medicate him without incident. Artificial tears are inexpensive and you can buy them at any department store. He’s a sweet little dog and we all adore him and want to make sure he goes to a home where his needs will be addressed for the rest of his life. We welcome adopters who have had experience with a dog with dry eyes because they will understand the importance of treating him and keeping his eyes moist. Contact your vet before applying if you have any concerns or questions about living with a pet with chronic dry eyes. This little guy is amazing and so PRECIOUS! **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. Even if the children are older, it would depend on the child AND the parent or parents. *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.

      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.
