Dog Searching for Friend to Hold Her Paw Across Rainbow Bridge
My dog Olive is my best friend, I couldn't imagine life without her. I wish everyone had an Olive. That's why we teamed up with Ninna's Road to Rescue. We love to show off some of Ninna's adoptable dogs, so hopefully, you find that companion you've been looking for.
Meet precious LeFlower, she's a Maltese and is around 11 years old. She weighs 13.8 pounds and she just wants to sit on your lap and look at your pretty face. Although this girl has a lot of life left in her, she is considered a hospice adoption. Her adoption fee has been waived. Due to her age, anemia, and mammary tumors, the vet does not recommend anesthesia to spay and remove tumors as she may not survive anesthesia.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this precious baby girl: "LeFlower came to us with Bunkie, both owner surrenders due to the owner having too much going on in her life. Bunkie has since been adopted. LeFlower has been back and forth to the vet since intake. We were hoping to get her well enough for anesthesia to be spayed and to address her mammary tumors but every time we sent her back in, her anemia actually became worse. Due to her chronic bronchitis and anemia and after consulting with our vet, we felt the best course of action was to adopt her out as a hospice case. Having said that, LeFlower isn’t ready to leave this world any time soon! She is a happy and sweet and loving life! She has the sweetest personality and loves everyone. She is laid back and is happy lounging around in someone’s lap or sprawled out on the floor cooling her underbelly. Speaking of a belly. She loves belly rubs and will roll over on her back for little belly scratches. If you think you have the heart to give this little girl home, we welcome your application. Just because she has some health issues doesn’t mean she is any less deserving of a loving home. If you think that’s you, we welcome your application."
*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.
*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!
*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.
*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.
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 to apply.
Applying to adopt does NOT commit you to the adoption until you’ve met the pet (unless you already have and know you want to adopt the pet)."
