Olive Her Friends: Meet Natalia
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 Natalia, she's an older chihuahua and really just wants a lap to sit in. Natalia was surrendered by her previous owner and is looking forward to finding her forever home. She's 14 years old and is a whole 3 pounds. Her 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 shy little girl: "Natalia came in with Naya and Nadine as owner surrenders in April 2019. The man in the home was battling an auto-immune disorder and the doctor has demanded that all pets must go. Natalia is very tiny. She was not spayed when she came to us and as a result, developed some mammary tumors. At the time, we had our vet spay her and remove the masses. The histology results were that the tumors were malignant. She went into foster as a hospice foster BUT... a year and a half later she is doing great and the tumors have not returned (likely because she is spayed now and she is not producing hormones). In any case, as much as the foster mom would love to keep her... it is not fair to her to keep her in a foster home when she could have a home of her own and her spot filled by another dog in need. Natalia is sweet and tiny and wants nothing more than to cuddle and sit in your lap. If you are approved to adopt, we will put you in touch with her foster mom to find out her routine. We know there is a home out there that would be willing to give a tiny senior a loving home."
*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)."
