Olive Her Friends: Meet Tillie Toes
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 Tillie Toes she's a cute Weiner AKA a Dachshund that is 10 pounds. Her approximate birthdate is 6/18/2016 and her adoption fee is $200, which includes vetting, microchip, and microchip enrollment fee. She is shy but very sweet. The staff at Ninna's said she is very submissive and scares easily because of that she will need a calm and patient home.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this cutie: " Tillie Toes came to us as an owner surrender. They purchased Tillie Toes four months ago but were not given full information on her and realized early on that she was likely a former breeder dog based upon her certain behaviors... circling... not understanding housetraining... some food aggression etc. She was more than they could handle since they both work full-time jobs so they reached out to us for help. We specialize in breeder dogs and know that they aren't a dog for everyone and assured them we would find her the right home. She is a tiny little girl and SO sweet, but she doesn't care for men. In fact, she is terrified of them. Given time, she may overcome this but it would take a male figure to work with her. She is not housetrained... and can be food aggressive with treats and food... but otherwise she was great with their other dog. We have yet to see this behavior at the rescue but since she is new it may take some time for that behavior to show up. She circles when anxious, excited or scared… but honestly, we haven’t seen much of that either. She loves to be held like a baby (or at least we think she does). She can scare easily … with sudden quick movements or loud sounds. She needs a quiet, calm home. If there is a man in the home, he would NEED to be on board with the adoption knowing that he’s going to have to put in some work with her to gain her trust and if approved, he would need to be at the adoption as well. We feel she’ll bond quickly to her human if given time. If you think you are the right home for her, 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)."
