Olive Her Friends: Meet Sigmund
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 Sigmund, a handsome Lhasa Apso, and his age is guestimated at 2 years old. He is a thick boy and weighs 16.10 pounds and gets along great with other dogs and cats. The adoption fee for Sigmund will be waived if you offer to foster him, the adoption includes vetting, microchip, and microchip enrollment fee.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this cute thick boy: "Sigmund came to us from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter. He came to them as an owner surrender. He was snarling, growling, barking and lunging at the staff. They immediately contacted us and while we were a bit concerned at first, we decided to give him a chance. We made sure to get all of his vetting and shave down, etc., done first so we could concentrate on his behavioral issues. His matting was so thick he had sores all over his body but especially around his legs from the pulling of the tight matting. We don’t know what his existence was during the first part of his life but we believe he was likely abused, taunted, mistreated and clearly neglected. Since being with us every day we see huge improvements. At first, he hated the leash. When someone would come at him with a leash… he would lunge and bark aggressively (was he being whipped possibly in the past??). Now that he knows we aren’t going to do anything, we are able to slip leash him and take him for walks which he really loves. One thing we notice he doesn’t like is for us to put him down after holding him and we are working on that. He loves to fetch and will oftentimes bring it back. He does listen and is responsive. He does go in a kennel but he will bark for a while but then he calms down. He does not potty in his kennel."
The crew at Ninna's will need you to pass their test in order to adopt this special boy. Contact them today to see if you could be a good fit for him.
"RESERVING A PUPPY: If your application is approved you will be contacted by phone. Specific puppies are only reserved with a deposit once the approved adopter is notified.
*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)."
