Olive Her Friends: Meet Fallon
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 Fallon, she's very shy and timid but most Chihuahua's are right? She's approximately 9 years old and weighs 5.12 pounds. Fallon loves other dogs but is still very shy around humans, luckily her foster family is working with her to help get her to trust humans again. 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: "When you think of your beloved dog, you think of them being in a safe and loving home… that all they’ve ever known when being with you is love, attention, care, and comfort. Can you imagine that many other dogs, specifically breeder dogs, don’t even know that kind of life? Fallon bares the marks of a breeder dog. It’s evidenced by her elongated teats… but even more so by the number tattooed in her left ear. The USDA requires that licensed breeders identify their breeder dogs by either a USDA tag, a microchip, or a tattoo. Fallon was tattooed likely because it didn’t cost them anything and you can bet there wasn’t any sedation. Can you imagine the fear Fallon has endured throughout her life at the hands of humans? This happens to hundreds of thousands of breeder dogs throughout the United States and the world every year. We can just make out the number as being possibly 545. Rest assured #545 now has a beautiful name… Fallon. How Fallon ended up in a hoarder situation we have no clue, but she continued to deliver litters of puppies. Of those, who knows how many puppies survived. Fallon came to us with five other dogs from a hoarder situation out of Webster Parish where many dogs and other animals were seized. The place was riddled with roaches, rats, dead animals, feces, and urine. The owner claimed all the dogs came off of Craigslist… which is likely where the breeder placed Fallon and how she ended up again in another horrid situation. Once we had her vetted, she went home with one of our board members, Michele, to help work on her distrust of humans. It’s so very sad to see her so scared… but with time and patience, we know she’ll develop a strong bond to a human that is kind to her. Keep in mind, though, that she will likely always be somewhat shy and scared of humans she does not know. For that reason, we want her in a home that is calm and quiet with only one or two humans. Will you be the person to turn Fallon’s life around? If you think you have what it takes to help this sweetheart, 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)."
