Olive Her Friends: Meet Orchid
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 Orchid, she looks like she is avoiding eye contact but the ruth is she's blind. Orchid was rescued from a horrid breeding situation and is looking forward to finding her forever home. She's 9 years old and is a 6-pound poodle who is excited about her new home. Her adoption fee is $170, 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 beautiful blind girl: "Orchid came to us with several other breeder dogs from a backyard breeder/puppy mill. They were part of a 14 dog intake. Most were in very poor health. Orchid escaped being heartworm positive or any other health issues, but she is blind. She seems to get around ok once she’s familiar with the surroundings. She needs a calm and quiet home; one that understands she will need time to navigate and learn your home. She needs a home that won’t move her surroundings around much. Ideally, if she had one or two rooms that she can become familiar with (at least in the beginning) she will acclimate a lot easier. She needs to be protected at all times when outside to potty (as all of our dogs do but especially a blind dog!). Orchid is the sweetest little girl with the sweetest, gentle temperament. She does great in a kennel but a leash is not in her vocabulary. If you’d like to give Orchid a loving, secure and safe home… we welcome your application. (FYI… It took 5000 -some exaggeration- photos to get the one photo where she happened to move her head in my direction… and while it appears she is looking at me… she cannot see me.)"
*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)."
