Intake reason: Every now and then a dog touches your soul. Chewy is one of those dogs. There is a sadness in his eyes. He came to us from an elderly couple east of Monroe. Chewy came wandering up to their property approximately 2 months ago. No owner was found and they could not care for him. He was in horrible shape. He was heavily matted, covered in fleas... and hung his head as if he’d given up hope. When we were contacted, we explained we cannot take in strays; however, knowing they did all they could to find the owner and had him for more than 2 months and considering the horrible shape he was in, we agreed to take him in. It took some time for us to win him over... but once we did... he’s a completely different dog. He loves to give kisses, he’s very submissive, very quiet and does not cause drama at the rescue. He’s calm and quiet and will make the most amazing lap dog for the right person. Ideally, we want for him a home where he’s number one... he’s the apple of his adopter’s eyes... and he’s given lots of love and care in a quiet and peaceful home. It only takes one look to absolutely fall in love with this special boy.
**IMPORTANT NOTES**
*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!
*NO SMALL CHILDREN!! As with almost all the dogs at NR2R, young children or a very active household is not recommended. Many of our dogs come to us BECAUSE of small children, thus we do not rehome our dogs to homes with babies or young children. Even if the children are older, it would depend on the child AND the parent or parents.
*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. To apply to be approved to adopt, please e-mail roadtorescue@bellsouth.net for an adoption application.
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 apply.
Applying to adopt does NOT commit you to the adoption until you’ve met the pet (unless you already have).
