Biography: Elvis originally came to us as an owner-surrender in 2021, with his mother Gladys. Soon after, Elvis was adopted to a repeat adopter of ours. We were contacted recently by that adopter that due to her age and the fact that she'd fallen, she could not care for Elvis or Benny (the other dog she adopted from us) any longer. They both have been lovingly cared for over the years. A few things we were told is that they are used to having someone home most of the time but they do fine when alone; they sleep on beds next to the bed of the previous owner; when the owner was gone, they were loose in the home (not kenneled); they both travel ok and are responsive; Elvis seems to do ok with bad weather but Benny, not so much as we found out when we were taking pictures and videos and it was thundering outside; and they do fine being groomed. We were told also that Elvis left front leg has some arthritis and he doesn't like his rear being touched (although when we did an in-house groom, we didn't notice that he was sensitive in his rear area). Elvis has been through two homes now and we hope that the third home will be his final home. He would love a quiet home as that is what he's been used to.


*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.

*Most 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!

*PREDATORS: IF THIS DOG IS UNDER 10 POUNDS, the dog is to be monitored and protected when outside at all times! PREDATOR-THREAT IS A REAL DANGER! For example, a hawk tried to pick up a Chihuahua owned by a friend visiting Ninna's house RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE VISITOR. Thankfully the visitor was watching the dog and the hawk was wrestled off of the Chihuahua but it did require an ER visit and she is was very lucky to survive. TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!

*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. KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU HAVE VISITING GRANDCHILDREN AS WELL! Even if the children are older, it would depend on the child AND the parent or parents.

*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.

*KENNELING: We always recommend kenneling when you cannot supervise your dog. This helps with housetraining and any destructive tendencies until you get to know your knew addition.

*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 primarily small-breed dogs and to re-home them into RESPONSIBLE and CARING forever homes. DOG APPLICATION LINK:

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 NOR does it guarantee the adoption.

CONTACT: Our adoptable pets are updated regularly, but if you want to check the availability of a pet... OR still have questions AFTER reading this profile, message us via our Facebook page. Please indicate the name when communicating with us.
