Olive her Friends: Meet Jedi
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 Jedi. He's a one-eyed guy who will forever be winking at you because you are that cute. You deserve to be loved and appreciated by a 7-year-old Shih Tzu that just wants to hang out with you. He's only 12 pounds so he can go with you everywhere you go. Keep in mind, he does have some health issues. His health issues: one eye; also diagnosed with grade 2 heart murmur (on lifetime Lasix 20mg, Enalapril 2.5mg, and Pimobendan 5mg). His adoption fee is $100, which includes vetting, microchip, and the microchip enrollment fee.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this little handsome guy: "Jedi came to us along with Juno and Jorja. Their owner, who was a doctor, bred Shih Tzus. He died at his home and several Shih Tzus were seized by animal control. We were told he wasn't found right away and two of his Shih Tzus perished with him and one passed away on the way to animal control. The other four were taken in by an acquaintance of the doctor once she found out they were at animal control. She is keeping one of the Shih Tzus and we took in the other three. Juno and Jorja are the parents of Jedi from what we were told. Sadly, 17 year old Juno passed away at our vet. We were told Jedi is 7 years old, but he appears older to us. Jedi came to us with a bulging eye that was not salvageable and not viable. Our vet removed the eye. He was also diagnosed with a heart murmur and on heart medication for the rest of his life. He is very sweet and very quiet. We’re not sure we’ve even ever heard him bark. He seems sort of lost and disoriented but it’s understandable considering everything he’s gone through. He does great in a kennel and walks ok on a leash. He would love a furever home by Christmas. Maybe you can make his Christmas wish come true. (Please check with your vet for costs of the heart medications and also check on-line pharmacies as well.)"
*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)."
