Olive Her Friends: Meet Bernie
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 the Grinch's dog, Bernie! Doesn't he look just like the Grinch's dog or is that just me? He is approximately 2 1/2 years old and weighs 17 pounds his adoption fee is $170, which includes vetting, microchip, and a microchip enrollment fee. Bernie loves other dogs and cats and is very timid but curious about everyone. He is heartworm positive.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this precious boy: "Bernie came in with Jory. Sadly, their owner passed away leaving three dogs. We took in two and another rescue took in the bigger dog. They were terrified and living under the house. It took several attempts to finally catch them both. They knew nothing of a leash and were trying to alligator roll out of it. We finally got them and safely transported them back to the rescue where we performed the check-in process. While they were scared, they did really well and finally calmed down. Bernie makes huge strides daily. He went from terrified to where now he’s giving kisses on our hands and learning to trust. While is his kennel space (which is an indoor large 8’X8’ kennel, he is protective of it… meaning he barks at dogs and people approaching, so he would be a good alarm of someone coming on your property or at your door. He’s a great little dog that just needs the right home to help him adjust to his new life. If you think that’s you, 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)."
