Olive Her Friends: Meet Lemonhead
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 Lemonhead, he is some kind of really cute Beagle/Chihuahua/Dachshund mix, and the crew at Ninna's suspect momma is a beagle that was chained up in the yard there were also Chihuahuas on sight, along with a bigger Dachshund-looking dog as well. Lemonhead is 8.2 pounds right now, his potential size is based upon current weight and age. They think he will be 45 to 50 pounds. His adoption fee is $250.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this sweet baby boy: "A rescue-friend notified us about four puppies living in squalor needing help and we took them in. They were very dehydrated, thin and dirty. We were told that the mother was a small stray Chihuahua mix of some sort and that she abandoned her puppies at the house from where they were picked up. The father is unknown. Based upon pictures we got AND the fact that these puppies do look like Beagles of some sort… we suspect the chained up beagle on sight is the mother… but really, who knows? Based upon their current size and weight, these puppies will not be small! We use the following calculation to determine potential size: Current weight, divided by age (in weeks) X 52. This is an estimate but will give you some idea of their adult size. Once we vaccinated the puppies, we felt on intake that they would like break with parvo… just due to the conditions we saw in pictures. Sure enough, on the 5th day after vaccinating, they broke. Actually, only one was showing symptoms, but we sent all FOUR to the vet for treatment. Thankfully they had been with us for five days getting dewormed, cleaned, eating and drinking well that they all survived and got over it really quick. If they had stayed on that property, they would have died. Now, they are healthy, happy, eating well, playing, wrestling, pooping, peeing and sleeping just like puppies do! They love snuggles and will nestle into your neck when held. If you think you have the patience and time to raise a puppy and the commitment to give them a life-long home, 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)."
