3.6 pounds

Temperament:   Extremely sweet and loving!  Not timid at all and no fear of people or other dogs.

Intake reason:   Autumn came to us from Caddo Animal Control.  She was super-scared at the shelter, huddled in a kennel with two other bigger dogs she did not know.  She did not try to bite and did not growl when we approached her.  It was as if she was asking us to get her out of there.  She nuzzled into my neck as I picked her up and held her close.  Eventually, she stopped shaking.  She was surrendered to animal control with another bigger dog by their owner but we don’t know why.  We are just glad we were able to help her.  She is precious and tiny and lovable and adorable and sweet!  She’s going to make one very lucky adopter a perfect lap and pet companion!


*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).
