Olive Her Friends: Meet Bear Bear
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 Bear Bear! He was brought into Ninna's Rescue in late February, and is described as a 9 pound Shih Tzu/ Terrier mix and is approximately 5 years old. Unfortunately, Bear Bear can't stand cats but does love other dogs.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's said about this cute companion: Bear Bear came in with Charley due to the severe medical issues of their owner. According to the daughter of the owner, they travel well, walk well on a leash and are housetrained (but we NEVER guarantee that dogs are housetrained). We were also told he doesn't care for cats, so no cats in the home, please. Bear Bear can be somewhat selective about certain male dogs. If the dog is dominant, he doesn’t care for that. Ideally, he’d do well in a home with a female… because he does love the ladies. He has lived with Charley all of his life and there were no issues so it would just depend on the dog. He’s had an issue with one other male dog at our rescue (and that dog has since been adopted) but doesn’t have any issues with any other dogs. Bear Bear loves toys! He becomes so focused on them that you could entertain him for hours or he could entertain you! LOL! If you think Bear Bear is the sweet boy for you, we welcome your application!
Adoption fee and vetting: $170, which comes with microchip and microchip enrollment fee.
Notes from Ninna's Road to Rescue:
"*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)."
