Ollie. Available for Adoption. Located around Shreveport, Louisiana. Seeking a special home for this one eyed boy. 

  • Ollie is a male short haired chihuahua.
  • Around 8lbs. 
  • Age is somewhere 1-3 years. 
  • Bonds amazingly with his owners. 
  • Small dog friendly.
  • Require older/respectable children if any. 
  • Prefer fenced yard.
  • Is kennel trained. 

Intake Date: March 25, 2016 from Caddo Parish Animal Services. 

This boy joined us on the news once too! We can call him famous now! haha. 

Vetting: Enucleation surgery (eye removal). Neuter. Up to date on shots. Fecal test which was negative. Heartworm test which was negative. Treated for kennel cough. Later had an injection to get him over being sick. Microchipped under rescue (see below for details). On monthly heartworm prevention and bravecto (3 month pill) for flea/tick prevention.  Just realized the vets wrote him as around 8 months old last March so he is about 1.5 years now. 

History: Ollie was found in a street with an injury to his eye and brought to the local open intake shelter. He was in pain with his eye and was going to be euthanized if a rescue did not save him. We took the little boy from his kennel and out into a play yard. He seemed very nervous but he came and stood on my lap and that's when i knew...he was going to come around and be okay. We rushed him to our vet where we were told Ollie's trauma to his eye was so severe that he would have to have it removed.

Personality: I would say if you are looking for a dog to bond with...Ollie is it. Ollie follows his people around EVERYWHERE. His fosters sent me a video one day and every turn he made...there was Ollie! haha. Ollie will just take a little time to adjust to a new environment. Loves getting in laps to sit and enjoy attention. This little boy will be at your feet and constantly keeping an eye on you (didn't mean to make a pun, but that was funny.) Does good with other small dogs but can be scared of large ones of course. 

Emotional State: We don't really list this for every dogs but some dogs are special due to their history. While Ollie is an amazingly sweet little boy he has been through a lot ending up on the streets, in the shelter, and losing his eye. We would like a more calm environment for him. With his first foster he did not get to see new people often and became scared of new people. We got him to a new foster that has events regularly and he has come a long way. He use to nip out of fear..there is no telling what all he has been through. Now he can go to events and even children will pet him. It is really a great thing to see a dog recover from their past. I just wanted potential new owners to know what he has been through as he still may be scared at times or certain situations may remind him of his past. All in all though this is a happy little boy that deeply loves his caretakers. If he had a calmer environment that could give him lots of attention he'd be good to go!  

Ollie is a special boy and we are looking for a special family to love him. If you are someone that wants a best friend to greet you every day...Ollie will be your man. As far as potty training he is let out frequently but just as with every dog they must adjust to the new owners schedules.

About Microchip: Our animals are microchipped under the rescue. By having the animals microchipped under us it provides us with a definite option of the animal being safe if found. If the pet ever goes missing you can let us know as well so we may help find them. If we ever are called on the animal being found we will try our best for 2 weeks to get in contact with the owners (as you should also be trying to get in contact with us) and if the owner is not found after 2 weeks the animal is legally ours again via our contract. This is a GREAT safety precaution for loving families. It means you will have an awesome caring team devoted to reuniting you with your baby. We ourselves have found microchipped dogs that have been rehomed and ended up in shelters on a euthanasia list. We take this very seriously as we never want that to happen to any of our animals. We also require first option of taking an animal back if the home does not work out. You can consider us a forever family for the pets adopted from us.

Adoption: Must have a vet reference when filling out one of our applications. Monthly heartworm prevention is very important to us and your pet so adopters need to be financially prepared to cover that expense. If you do not know about heartworms we would love to tell you about them. We all have to learn! Any inquiries on adoption please feel free to message us. All information stated above is the the best of our knowledge for for as long as we have known this pet.

Adoption fee of $100.

About Rockers Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Rockers Rescue is a smaller organization. We were founded and became a 501c3 non profit in December of 2015. We are currently foster only with plans to have our own building set up down the road. Being foster only means we cannot help a dog in need without a home to temporarily watch the dog until it is adopted.
We fall in love with dogs that are in need. Dirty, scared. malnourished, mange, heartworms, embedded collars, elderly, etc. When we pull a dog under our rescue .... they are treated as if they are our own personal dogs. We get them fixed, microchipped, and up to date. We nurture them back to health and we get attached to them. We see lots of them evolve from scared and discarded little dogs to beautiful amazing ones. From a high kill shelter with no hope... to a lovely AMAZING pet.

Looking back at them from when we first got them..... and seeing them now...it is worth every second. We want our adopters to have that same bond with them. We want them to know this isn't just a dog... its an amazing pet with a story. One that has been discarded but wants love. They DESERVE love.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a foster only rescue so we do not have a location for potential adopters to visit. We are newer and working on set adoption days around Shreveport, Louisiana. You may email us at rockersrescue@gmail.com to see if we have current adoption days or check our facebook page Rockers Rescue- Northwest La.

If we do not have a current adoption event we require people to first fill out our adoption application before we will schedule a meet. We are foster only so this saves us time having the potantial adopter pre-approved.

Our Adoption Process...

We require people interested in our dogs to fill out an adoption application through email. We will call to do vet/ landlord checks. It is important that our adopters have their own vet and are fully prepared mentally and financially for another pet. All of our animals are to remain on heartworm prevention. We prefer fenced back yards but dependent on the dog they may be able to handle a different lifestyle. It just depends.
If approved we will plan a meet to see how the dog does in your home environment and with your pets and family. If you are not local we will request pictures of where the pet would be staying. If you are not local it helps for us to know all about your animals and their temperaments etc.

The adoption fees may vary but they are around $100 with the animal being spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, on heartworm prevention, and microchipped.

With any of our dogs that have heartworms we do slow treatment. This is less harsh on the dog than full blown treatment. The dogs are able to maintain their normal lifestyle. With full blown treatment it is dangerous if they do not remain calm. They get 2 doxycycline pills twice a day for a month. Along with taking preventative. This kills the baby heartworms and prevents more from being born while weakening the adults until they die off. Our dogs going through slow treatment are very much adoptable but if they are still taking their month of pills they require a responsible owner to be sure they take them.

Some of our dogs may be getting shots weekly for non-contagious mange etc. If you are local to us you could bring the dog to our vet to continue their shots. If you aren't local we would have to work it out so that the dog could go to your vet to finish their treatment. We want the best for our dogs. If you are interested in adopting one that currently has more special care we can see what can be worked out. So long as our babies are safe, loved, and taken care of!
