Olive Her Friends: Meet Shuffles
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 Shuffles! She is a beautiful petite Shih Tzu that is approximately 7 to 8 years old and weighs about 7 pounds. She is great with other cats and dogs even though she was rescued from a horrid breeder situation. Her adoption fee is $170, which includes vetting, microchip, and microchip enrollment fee.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this cutie: "Retired breeder dogs from large breeder operations are different than your typical dog that has grown up in a home. Many don’t understand human affection, touch, handling, or even picking them up (by other than the nape of the neck as you would lift a puppy). They typically don’t understand a leash or the sights and sounds of a home. Many have spent their entire lives in a kennel. They eat, sleep, defecate, and urinate in their kennel. In some breeder operations, the dogs are hosed down while in their kennels. It may take months or years before they can overcome their past. In some cases, they really never do… but they can learn to accept your love and affection. If you love doggie kisses, you may never get one… but you can teach them to kiss by offering a treat for a kiss. These dogs aren’t broken, they just need someone with a big enough heart, the time, the patience and enough compassion to help them navigate their new world. These dogs are not for everyone and it’s important to us that we find them the RIGHT home, not just a home."
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.
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)."
