Joshie (male)

Intake date:   8/28/16


Approx DOB 8/29/2006

8.9 pounds

Adoption fee:  $140, 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:  none found

Temperament:  Very sweet and quiet.  Shy at first, but warms up quickly.  He’s such a sweet little boy.

Intake reason:   Joshie came in with Joy when their owner passed away.  Joy has since been adopted, but Joshie is still waiting on his forever home.  He looks like a little sheep... he’s so cute!  For the first few days, he and Joy hid under the couch at the rescue.  Over time, they both started to come out to find out what was going on... especially when we were in the kitchen.  Joshie doesn’t hide much anymore unless the rescue is crowded with people.  We believe he was probably in a very quiet home with his owner and didn’t experience a lot of excitement.  We believe he wasn’t really used to being picked up either... because when we pick him up, he sort of panics.  We’ve learned to gently pet him and then move our hands to his underbelly and slowly pick him up.  He’s learning quickly that dogs rarely touch the ground at our rescue.  LOL!  Joshie is going to make some lucky person very happy because he is absolutely precious!



*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.  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.


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 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).
