Olive Her Friends: Meet Aunt Posey
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 Aunt Posey, she's a Maltese-Poodle mix coming in at 11 pounds and the crew at Ninna's thinks she's anywhere from 7 to 8 years old (she was estimated to be 2 to 3, but the crew at Ninna's is convinced that she's much older) The Maltese-Poodle mix is described as very sweet, with a submissive personality. Aunt Posey is a pretty good combo of playful, but mostly she’s chill. Her adoption fee is $170, which includes vetting, microchip, and microchip enrollment fee.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this cutie: "Aunt Posey came to us from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter. She was an owner surrender because the owner indicated she couldn't afford to take care of her. OPAS contacted us for help because they are so full and we picked her up the same day. She does great in a kennel and walks ok on a leash. She is quiet and when we were sheering off some of her matting and cleaning up the hair around her face, she did really well and was very very still to let us do what we needed to do. We’re not sure if it was because she was scared or if that is just how she is when being groomed. She’s very quiet so it’s hard to get a read on her but after I (Ninna) took her pictures I came close to her talking sweetly and I got some kisses. (We don’t recommend anyone putting their face up to a scared dog’s face… but I’ve been doing this a while so I just kind of knew I wasn’t going to get a negative reaction from her). She will bond quickly, we believe, to whoever is kind to her. We don’t think she’s had much kindness from humans in her life. If you think you can give this little girl a loving and responsible home, 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)."
