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.

Ninna's Road to Rescue

He's not a drunk he just looks that way!

I mean just look at that cute little tongue sticking out. Meet the smallest yet cutest Shih Tzu we have ever seen. He only weighs 5 pounds which is small for a guy his breed, but he's a great cuddler and loves other dogs and cats.

His adoption fee and vetting is $200, which includes vaccinations microchip and microchip enrollment fee

Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this precious boy: "Birch’s mother, Maple, came to us from a hoarder situation where we took in several dogs. Maple came to us pregnant on June 30, 2021. We watched for signs she was going into labor and were estimating her due date from an x-ray taken at our vet. On June 11th, Michele came in to take Maple home because we suspected she was going to deliver soon. Thankfully she did because Maple went into labor that night! She delivered four healthy puppies on June 12, 2021! All of Birch’s siblings have been adopted. There is an exciting reason that Birch hasn’t been posted until now and we will explain that to an approved adopter. We are requiring that he be adopted locally… another thing that will be explained to an approved adopter. Birch has been lovingly cared for since birth. He has been kept in a clean environment and when he was old enough, he was able to play and interact with other dogs and cats of which he does amazingly well. He’s super sweet and social because Michele does bring him to the rescue during her shifts so he’s accustomed to other people, different dogs, different situations, varying noises, etc. He’s a really well-rounded pup and is going to make a great companion for one lucky adopter!! If you think that’s you, we welcome your application!"

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)."
