Story
Please read the pet description IN IT'S ENTIRETY before applying.  Thank you for your cooperation. STRAY NEW INTAKE 3/13/2024 STRAY HOLD THRU END OF DAY 3/18/2024 We named them Rosco and Bosco.  This is Rosco.  These dogs showed up at a home on Hwy 157 close to Hwy 528.  Rosco appears to have a bum leg.  We posted them both on social media while they were still at the home... but no one came forward so we took them in.  Neither are microchipped or altered.  We have notified Bossier City Animal Control that we have them they have both been registered in their system.  If no one comes forward by END OF DAY on 3/18/2024, they will head to the vet for vetting.  Rosco is heavily matted but we can't really do anything because he's in pain with the back left leg.  We will need to figure out what's going on there and then try to get a handle on his coat. Rosco appears to be a Schnauzer/Poodle mix of some sort; 18.2 pounds and about 3 years old.  Bosco is a Schnauzer mix, 16.4 pounds and about 3 years old as well.  You must show proof this is your dog via pictures... vet records, etc. We don't go off of "see if the dog will answer to xxxx". We don't go off of someone just saying the dog is their dog. You must have PROOF! We do NOT take applications for dogs on stray hold. You will need to wait until the dog is officially posted for adoption provided no owner comes forward before stray hold is up BY END OF DAY 3/18/2024. “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”  ~ Gandhi Be responsible ~  Always spay/neuter, keep your dogs on heartworm prevention, vaccinate against disease... and if you bring a pet into your life, commit to that pet for life.  Blessings.

Please read the pet description IN IT'S ENTIRETY before applying.  Thank you for your cooperation. NOT YET TAKING APPLICATIONS – NOT YET AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION NEW INTAKE 3/23/2024:  Ava Mae - female - approx 4 years old - 12.6 pounds - Jack Russell Terrier Reason for intake:   Ava Mae was posted on-line for a new home along with a Beagle.  The person who posted was helping someone who had the dogs after they were abandoned upon him by a "friend"...  (I guess that friendship is over now).   She met the man when two of the dogs got out of the yard.  The man was overwhelmed by it all... claiming the dogs keep getting out and he has three dogs of his own.  She offered to help him find somewhere for the two dogs to go and that's where we come in.  We were able to take in the little JRT and we are trying to find a rescue for the Beagle since we just don't have room for a dog his size right now.  Ava Marie is a sweet little girl and heading to our vet the week of 3/25/2024.  (Note: It appears her left eye is smaller than her right eye and she seems to be squinting so we will have our vet check that out.)  Stay tuned! NOT TAKING APPLICATIONS:  Many dogs, particularly breeder, hoarder or senior dogs, can have multiple medical issues that need addressed.  Additionally, sometimes we take in young puppies requiring multiple vaccinations and/or quarantining.   In this particular case, we are not yet taking applications either due to age or possible illness or some other reason.  We will post when s(he) is ready for adoption.  In the interest of fairness, EARLY application submissions will NOT be considered.  Please note…  we cannot respond to messages/emails, etc., on dogs that are NOT yet available for adoption.  Please wait until the dog is available for adoption.  We will post him or her on Facebook in our Adoptable Dog Album pinned to the top of our page which you can follow at this link:  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.416768288349589&type=3 OR you can keep checking our website at www.roadtorescuela.org.  We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”  ~ Gandhi Be responsible ~  Always spay/neuter, keep your dogs on heartworm prevention, vaccinate against disease... and if you bring a pet into your life, commit to that pet for life.  Blessings.

Heartworm *POSITIVE – read thoroughly   You Tube video link:  https://youtu.be/iLCLGlJXwfo   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 Crow (male) Intake date:   3/29/2024 Lhasa Apso Approx 8 years old 12.7 (very thin) pounds Adoption fee:  $170, which includes vetting, microchip Good with other dogs:  yes Cats:  unknown – we do not have cats to be able to test Vetting and other:  altered (spayed/neutered), up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm *POSITIVE, treated for urinary tract infection, fecal negative, 6 month Proheart injection (heartworm prevention), on monthly flea/tick prevention, in-house groom to get rid of matting, microchipped Health issues:  heartworm *positive – scroll down to read heartworm positive paragraph Temperament:  very sweet and quiet;  chill Energy level:  low Groom needs:  High;  requires regular professional grooming, along with intermittent brushing to avoid matting Biography:  Crow came to us via rescue friend.  He had a lot of old, thick matting all over his body but especially around his rear area and ears and smelled horrendous.  We got rid of all the matting and gave him a good scrubbing on intake we could tell immediately, he felt so much better!  He had bloody urine on intake which was determined to be a raging urinary tract infection.  Our vet treated him for that and his urine is all cleared up now.  Crow does well in a kennel if needed and walks well on a leash.  He gets along with everyone and we’ve had no issues at all.  He is quiet.  We’re sure there is a bark in there somewhere but we haven’t heard it.  Crow would love a home that is calm just like he is.  If you’re interested in Crow, we welcome your application!   *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!  CROW 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 receives another 30 day course of Doxycycline when s(he) receives their next Proheart injection (6 months from the first injection). After one year, we recommend the dog be retested for heartworms.  If positive, continue the Doxycycline every 6 months along with the Proheart injection.  If negative, continue with regular heartworm prevention (Proheart injection or monthly pill or topical) just like you would do for any heartworm negative dog.  If negative, discontinue the Doxycycline regimen.  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).  (Note:  Heartworms are not contagious from dog-to-dog or by any other means OTHER THAN a bite from an infected mosquito.  That is the only way dogs get heartworms and the only way to protect them is through prevention.)   **IMPORTANT NOTES** *We do adopt out of state provided the adopter is willing and able to travel to us once approved.  We do not ship or transport our animals and there is no exception to this rule.   *Most 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!   *PREDATORS:    IF THIS DOG IS UNDER 10 POUNDS, the dog is to be monitored and protected when outside at all times!  PREDATOR-THREAT IS A REAL DANGER!  For example, a hawk tried to pick up a Chihuahua owned by a friend visiting Ninna’s house… RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE VISITOR.  Thankfully the visitor was watching the dog and the hawk was wrestled off of the Chihuahua but it did require an ER visit and she is was very lucky to survive.   TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!     *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.    *KENNELING:  We always recommend kenneling when you cannot supervise your dog.  This helps with housetraining and any destructive tendencies until you get to know your knew addition.   *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 primarily small-breed dogs and to re-home them into RESPONSIBLE and CARING forever homes.    DOG APPLICATION LINK:   http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-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!!

Temperament:  very sweet, but scared, not used to human touch;  may panic if spooked – needs adopter committed to helping him learn his new life (he’s already come so far while with us) Energy level:  low-medium Groom needs:  High;  requires regular professional grooming, along with intermittent brushing to avoid matting (When he came to us, he was HEAVILY MATTED… with thick mats glued to his skin with urine, feces and who knows what else.  We wanted to save his mane and tail so we worked to brush out with a razor comb all the matting and he really seemed to enjoy it.  We shaved down what we could of the matting but the parts that were glued to his skin, we let the vet handle while he was sedated for neutering.  It wasn’t that he was fighting us, because he wasn’t… it was that they were so glued to the skin, we were afraid we would hurt him… so we stopped and let the vet handle it.) Biography:  Micro is a breeder release with Lava via a rescue friend.  This poor guy came to us in such bad shape but look at him now!  What a difference.  Micro has spent his entire life as a breeder dog and his new chapter began the day we took him in.   He is very shy and if in a situation where he gets spooked, he will panic.  When he first came to us, he would alligator roll on the leash but if you watch the video, that has changed.  It’s likely he’s not had much human contact in his life but that changed the day he came to us.  We recommend a lot of leash walking, handling, petting, treating, etc., because that is what is going to bond him to you.   What we have found over the years with dogs like Micro is that once they get in a home with one person who is committed to their happiness and enriching their life, these dogs come out of their shells.  He may never be one to give you kisses but we believe he will begin to snuggle and want to be near you.  We see it time and time again with breeder dogs.  Even some of our own volunteers have adopted dogs like Micro and we see what happens once they are in a home but it does take time and patience.  Micro does fine in a kennel and in fact, providing him a place to go if he needs space would be a good thing.  You can even leave the kennel door open so he can come and go.    Below is a paragraph to help you understand breeder dogs:   (This may or may not be typical of this particular dog.)   Some retired breeder dogs or dogs that have come from a hoard situation are different than your typical dog that have grown up in a home.  Many don’t understand human affection, touch, handling or even being picked up.  Some may have only been picked up by the nape of the neck as you would lift a puppy.   They typically don’t understand a leash or the sights and sounds of a home.   Many have spent their entire lives in a kennel and/or in a nasty environment and many have only lived outdoors.  They are used to eating, sleeping, defecating and urinating in their kennel or wherever.  In some breeder operations, the dogs are hosed down while in their kennels.  Many breeder dogs spin when anxious, nervous, afraid or even happy because they are used to being only in a kennel with limited mobility.  It may take months or years before they can overcome their past.  In some cases, they really never do… but they can learn to accept your love and affection.  If you love doggie kisses, you may never get one… but you can teach them to kiss by offering a treat for a kiss.   These dogs aren’t broken, they just need someone with a big enough heart, the time, the patience and enough compassion to help them navigate their new world.  These dogs are not for everyone and it’s important to us that we find them the RIGHT home, not just a home.   If you think you can help Micro and change his life, we welcome your application.  Note:  He’s really captured all of our hearts so you’ll have to be pretty special to adopt him.      **IMPORTANT NOTES** *We do adopt out of state provided the adopter is willing and able to travel to us once approved.  We do not ship or transport our animals and there is no exception to this rule.   *Most 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!

Energy level:  low-medium Groom needs:  High;  requires regular brushing -  Pom coats are thick and they do shed – regular professional grooming is recommended to help with shedding and matting Biography:   Fookie is a breeder release along with two others.  We are currently working on / helping (via a rescue friend) a breeder who is releasing some of her dogs.  Fookie had some matting that we took care of but other than that he seems to be in good shape.  He does fine in a kennel if needed for housetraining but the leash is foreign to him.  That’s going to take a little more work.   Not much else to say except these dogs are so sweet and would make any Pomeranian-lover jump for joy!  If you are interested in little Fookie, we welcome your application!   **IMPORTANT NOTES** *We do adopt out of state provided the adopter is willing and able to travel to us once approved.  We do not ship or transport our animals and there is no exception to this rule.   *Most 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!   *PREDATORS:    IF THIS DOG IS UNDER 10 POUNDS, the dog is to be monitored and protected when outside at all times!  PREDATOR-THREAT IS A REAL DANGER!  For example, a hawk tried to pick up a Chihuahua owned by a friend visiting Ninna’s house… RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE VISITOR.  Thankfully the visitor was watching the dog and the hawk was wrestled off of the Chihuahua but it did require an ER visit and she is was very lucky to survive.   TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!     *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.    *KENNELING:  We always recommend kenneling when you cannot supervise your dog.  This helps with housetraining and any destructive tendencies until you get to know your knew addition.   *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 primarily small-breed dogs and to re-home them into RESPONSIBLE and CARING forever homes.    DOG APPLICATION LINK:   http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-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 NOR does it guarantee the adoption. CONTACT:  Our adoptable pets are updated regularly, but if you want to check the availability of a pet... OR still have questions AFTER reading this profile, message us via our Facebook page.   Please indicate the name when communicating with us. www.RoadtoRescueLA.org   “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”  ~ Gandhi Be responsible ~  Always spay/neuter, keep your dogs on heartworm prevention, vaccinate against disease... and if you bring a pet into your life, commit to that pet for life.  Blessings.
