Olive Her Friends: Meet Crikey
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 Crikey the pomeranian that gets along great with other dogs and cats. Unfortunately, he is Heartworm positive, but the staff at Ninna's doesn't want you to be deterred from adopting him just because he is heartworm positive. They can guide you through the process of treating him for heartworms. Crikey is very friendly and doesn't believe in strangers, he's ready to be your co-pilot.
The adoption fee for Crikey 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 cute black pomeranian: "Crikey came to us from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter. He was surrendered there because his elderly owner couldn’t care for him any longer. He had overgrown nails, was covered in fleas, ear mites, missing quite a bit of his hair, and very scared. What a difference a vet visit and some love will make! His fleas are gone and we are starting to see some regrowth of his hair. His ears were treated and his nails trimmed and he’s doing tons better! Sadly, he is heartworm positive but we have already started him on our slow-kill protocol (read more about it in the paragraph below). He’s a happy boy and gets along with everyone… dogs and humans alike. He does great in a kennel and walks well on a leash. He’ll make someone a wonderful companion. If you think that’s you, we welcome your application."
"RESERVING A PUPPY: If your application is approved you will be contacted by phone. Specific puppies are only reserved with a deposit once the approved adopter is notified.
*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)."
