Olive Her Friends: Meet Banderos
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 Banderos he is an adorable Chihuahua weighing in at about 5 pounds. His adoption fee is $170, which includes vetting, microchip and microchip enrollment fee. He is great with other dogs and cats which is a plus for a Chihuahua. Warning, Banderos is obsessed with kissing, so please don't swipe right if you aren't down with sloppy wet kisses.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this precious little girl: "Banderos came to us when his owner became to ill to care for him. The son reached out to us for help and we took him in. He came to us EXTREMELY SCARED, bitey, growly… wouldn’t eat… wouldn’t let anyone near him… laid in a doggie bed all day and would lunge or bolt if anyone approached. Well, we aren’t ones to give up… so every day… we worked with him. He would jump on the gate when he wanted to come in… so we always took that opportunity to pick him up and while he struggled to get away, we held tight. He would slowly calm down and relax. We introduced boiled chicken to him (which he LOVES!). Then… all of a sudden… like from one day to the next… he realized… “hey, these people are nice!”. It was literally like a switch went off. He now jumps on our legs to be picked up… he gives kisses… he prances around with confidence… etc. He’s a changed dog. A huge thanks goes out to all our volunteers who really worked with him and didn’t give up (and at the risk of being bit… which he never actually did… but would warn us by snapping the air). One thing we’ve noticed now that he wants our attention and to be held… is he has become lap possessive of other dogs approaching. This is NOT uncommon… so please don’t hold it against him. Some little dogs can just be that way. Otherwise, he does fine with the other dogs we’ve had no problem out of him in that regard. We’d love a home for him that is calm and nurturing… patient and kind. If you think you are the person for Banderos, 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)."
