Hocus Pocus (female)
Intake date: 10/5/16
Approx 5 years old
Adoption fee: $170, which includes microchip and enrollment fee
Good with other dogs: yes
Vetting: Pyometra detected... spay performed eliminating problem (always spay/neuter!), UTD on shots, heartworm negative, fecal negative, dental performed (9 teeth extracted), Nexgard (for fleas and ticks)
Health issues: none found
Temperament: Very sweet, independent, confident, social
Intake reason: Hocus Pocus came to us from Caddo Animal Services. We suspect she was surrendered due to constant urinating. What they didn’t know is that she was suffering from Pyometra. In short, it’s an infection of the uterus which in turn causes excessive drinking and urination as the kidneys work to rid the body of the toxins. It is life-threatening if not treated quickly. Treatment is spaying. This is just one of the MANY, MANY REASONS a dog should be spayed at or before 6 months of age! Now that she is spayed, no other treatment is required. She has also gone through a course of antibiotics. Hocus Pocus is a sweet little dog. When she first arrived, she was scared and pretty-much kept to herself. She didn’t really want human contact and didn’t interact with the other dogs. After a few days, all of that disappeared. While she is very independent, she is also very loving and social. Ideally, Hocus Pocus is looking for a home where she will be the apple of someone’s eye where she will receive the love and care she hasn’t had in her past. Is that person you?
*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 email@example.com 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).
