Dog Has Heartbreaking Story, But Determined to Find Love!
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.
If his eyes could tell you everything he's been through your heart would shatter. Meet precious Oogie. Although he has been through hell and back and mistreated by humans he has hope that his human will come around and make his life complete. He is a Bichon mix and his age is estimated to be around 8 years old, and he weighs 13 pounds. His adoption fee is $170, which includes vetting, microchip, and a microchip enrollment fee. Due to the neglect he suffered, he is also heartworm positive.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this precious boy: "We were contacted by a lady needing help with several dogs. Oogie was the only small dog so we agreed to take him in and we are networking the larger breed dog and puppies with other rescue groups. Oogie was in desperate need. He was covered in fleas with dreadlocks and matting covering his entire body. We explained that he would be in good hands and we would take really good care of him as she was really concerned for him. Maybe now she can concentrate on getting help for herself now that we've taken on the dog and freed her of that burden. The first thing we did was give him a Capstar to get rid of all the fleas. Oogie went to our groomer but the coat could not be saved and he got a complete shave down. The groomer reported he did really well. He does great in a kennel and walks well on a leash. He’s a special little guy who just needs a loving, responsible home. 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)."
