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. 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.

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: Dachshund-Unknown Mix

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed (medium 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 Archie (male) Intake date: 10/13/2014 (original intake date) Adopted: 11/12/2014 Found running loose with Edith and came back to us: 4/27/2018 Dachshund/Terrier mix (wire-haired) Approx DOB 4/13/2014 15.6 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 POSITIVE, 6 month Proheart injection, fecal positive for hookworms (treated and cleared), Capstar/flea preventive Health issues: heartworm positive – *see heartworm notes below Temperament: VERY sweet temperament, somewhat submissive and shy, but friendly/social Energy level: Low-medium; can be playful/ active or lie around quietly Groom needs: Medium; Needs a bath and brush from time-to-time Biography: Archie came to us with Edith in October 2014, as puppies from Bossier City Animal Control. Mid-November 2014, they were adopted by an older couple from Marshall, Texas. Fast forward April 2018, we were contacted by a police officer in Addison, TX that these two were found running loose. Finding out they were microchipped, they tried making contact with the owner with no luck. Since we are listed as secondary contact on all of our adopted dogs and cats, they contacted us. We also tried to make contact with the adopters. Sadly, after researching some... we found out the husband died. We could not find out any information on the wife (who was elderly) so we are not sure what happened. The home number was disconnected and we did not get a return call from the cell phone or from the listed nearest living relative on their application. Nevertheless, this is why microchipping is so important. FOUR YEARS have gone by and they have made their way BACK TO US... when their fate could have been very different. Archie and Edith were covered in ticks. Weirdly, they didn’t have fleas. We’ve removed all of ticks and they have each gotten preventive. Sadly, Archie came back to us heartworm positive, but we have started him on the gentle kill (or slow-kill method) explained below. Archie is somewhat shy, but friendly and sweet. He does walk ok on a leash and is very quiet in his kennel. We will adopt Archie and Edith out separately, unless someone comes along to adopt them together (wherein the adoption fee will be significantly reduced). * 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! Archie 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 write-up 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! 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.

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. We are looking for a home for Vito with someone with patience to learn to know him. He is an amazing dog, but when made to do something he doesn't want to do, he does get upset. He needs an experienced dog owner.

      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Pomeranian / Mixed (medium 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: PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE applying: DOG APPLICATION LINK: http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-application Scout (male) Intake date: 4/17/2018 Jack Russell Terrier/Pomeranian mix approx DOB 10/17/2017 7.6 pounds Adoption fee: $250, which includes microchip and enrollment fee Good with other dogs: yes Cats: yes Vetting: altered (spayed/neutered), UTD on shots, heartworm negative (puppy), fecal negative, flea preventive Health issues: none found Temperament: VERY sweet, but timid. Kind of like a squirrel... easily distracted. Hangs on to you tightly when picked up. Energy level: Medium; Can be playful or calm. Still a puppy. Groom needs: Medium; bath and brush from time to time. Biography: Scout came to us as an owner surrender. His owner had an elderly, blind Yorkie and Scout really didn't understand boundaries... upsetting the Yorkie. Worried for her elderly dog, she contacted a rescue friend who in turn contacted us and here he is. He is a doll... very sweet and lovable. He is however, distracted easily and is very timid to sounds, movement, etc. This makes it difficult to walk him on a leash, but we are working on it. We were told that h e loves to sleep in the bed, he travels well and does ok with bad weather. He is used to a doggie door and likes to take things from the house to the back yard. We hope for a home for him where the adopter has patience to help him with his timid ways and someone who is home more often than not. PUPPIES! Keep in mind, puppies teeth just like human babies and have little sharp toenails. They will also have behaviors that require training. Puppies will chew, bite, nip, bark, destroy, dig, scratch, etc. The puppy phase lasts about 18 months (sometimes longer), so be sure you ARE READY for the commitment! Also, a puppy can only hold their bladder for a short period of time based upon their age. If the puppy is 2 months old, they can hold their bladder for 2 hours; 3 months/3 hours; 4 months/ 4 hours, etc., up to 6 months of age. At about 6 months of age, this time frame stables out. In conclusion, if your puppy is in a responsible home that provides daily structure, training and socialization with people and other pets, your puppy will grow to be a well-adjusted and wonderful part of your family for many years to come. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!

We were asked by Caddo Parish Animal Services to help with this little 9.6 pound dog who had been viciously attacked by another dog. Even though she was a stray, they allowed her to leave on medical release (thank you CPAS!). We rushed her to our vet... where they started working on her immediately. We don't know the extent of her injuries or if there will be any long term issues, but she's in the best hands right now. We named her Hortense and she's about a year old.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (medium 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: PLEASE read profile thoroughly BEFORE applying: DOG APPLICATION LINK: http:// www.roadtorescuela.org/ dog-application Kit (female) Intake date: 4/2/2018 Chihuahua Approx 3-4 years old 5.2 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, URI treated (cleared), Capstar and flea preventive Health issues: none found Temperament: very sweet and submissive; shy at first, but warms up very quickly Energy level: low; wants to be in your lap most of the time Groom needs: low; bath and brush from time to time Biography: Kit came to us with Caboodle (who has since been adopted) from Caddo Parish Animal Services. She was fighting a pretty bad upper-respiratory infection when we pulled her from CPAS and she stayed at the vet for a few days being treated before they could spay her. She is now cleared and fully vetted and ready for her furever home! She does amazing in a kennel; very quiet. She walk somewhat well on a leash, although we don’t think she’s been on a leash much. She’s very sweet and wants to be cuddled. She’s so tiny and delicate.

      Breed: Affenpinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Affenpinscher / Mixed (medium coat). *heartworm positive (read “Heartworm positive” paragraph below) Pictures update: 4/9/2018 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 Maja (female) Intake date: 2/6/2018 Yorkie mix Approx 2 years old 7.4 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*, fecal positive for hookworms and whipworms (treated and now negative), 6 month Proheart injection, baby teeth extraction (2), Capstar and flea preventive Health issues: heartworm POSITIVE* Temperament: Shy, submissive, sweet Energy level: Medium; will play or be a great lap dog Groom needs: Medium; requires brushing from time to time Biography: Maja came to us with Elin from Bossier City Animal Control. They were extremely afraid so much so that they would alligator roll on the leash and urinate and defecate on themselves. It was heartbreaking. What a difference a couple of weeks make! They now are very happy and well-adjusted little girls. They do play the “hard to get” game, but eventually will let you pick them up by rolling on their backs in a submissive manner. They are just precious. They are kennel trained and we’ve been working on the leash training. Maja is ready for her forever home. Won’t you be her happy ending? *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! Maja 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 write-up 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! 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.

Social, friendly. Does not really care to be picked up. Energy level: Medium; can be very active... loves to jog with his human; he is also just as comfortable lying in someone’s lap. Will watch birds and squirrels ALL DAY LONG! Groom needs: Low Biography: Hercules was surrendered to the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter because they had a baby in the home and Hercules did not like the baby. This is not uncommon for small dogs and the reason we won’t rehome our dogs to homes with babies or small children. He was very cautious at the shelter and as a result, they would only let him go to a rescue. He also had some skin issues that needed to be addressed. We were tagged in his photo on Facebook. 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!! He quickly warmed up to Ninna on the transport back from Monroe... moving from the passenger seat minding his own business... to the center console... to her lap. He walks great on a leash and he actually would wonderful for someone that jogs. He loves it! He does fine in a kennel and does well with the other dogs. He does not care to be picked up and if he's in your lap, he doesn't really want to leave. He will watch the birds and squirrels of your yard for hours on end. You definitely won't have to worry about any unwanted animals entering your yard with Hercules around! He’s going to make someone very happy for many more years to come. **IMPORTANT NOTES** *All of our adoptable dogs are small, and they are never to be left outside alone, ever!
