My dog Olive is my best friend, I couldn't imagine life without her. I wish everyone had an Olive. yes, she causes headaches at times but I love her to pieces. Small dogs aren't the easiest to deal with, and Ninna's Road to Rescue knows that our littles can be difficult at times, but, we love them anyway. They're your shotgun riders, your couch hoggers, and they may be small, but their personalities are larger than life.

Ninnas Road to Rescue

Check out Olive's friend Fozzie, he's a 12-year-old Pomeranian and they describe him as an "OVERWEIGHT" guy. Weighing in at 20.4 pounds, you'll have to be willing to "work out" with him. The good news is that he is good with other dogs and cats. Fozzie's adoption fee is $100, which includes vetting, microchip and a microchip enrollment fee.

The crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue described how they stumbled upon the overweight little guy:

"Fozzie came to us from the DeSoto Parish Animal Shelter. He was an owner-surrender. He was horribly matted and unkempt. The shelter networked him to find a rescue and someone tagged us and we agreed to take him in. What a little... errr... big gem he is! Precious as they come. We got him to our groomer, BarksTail HairForce, for a much-needed shave-down and he feels so much better. Then he traveled to our vet and then back to us and ready for his furever home. He does great in a kennel, walks well on a leash, and is a sweet-tempered dog. He does like to sleep a lot. He’ll find a quiet spot at the rescue and lay down and sleep. We think he may be a little hard of hearing because he didn’t respond much to our high-pitched noises to get his attention when taking his pictures. Other than that and working on his weight-loss... he doesn’t have any other issues that we have seen. If you’d like to give this precious, chubby monkey butt... a home, we welcome your application."

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. DOG APPLICATION LINK: http://www.roadtorescuela.org/dog-application

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)."
