Biography: Her first bio read "Moon came in with several other retiring breeder dogs. She is very sweet and quiet. Everyone has fallen in love with her and clearly it's very easy to do. She doesn't touch the ground much because someone is always holding her. She loves to snuggle in your neck and she's just the sweetest little girl. She has on-set of cataracts in her left eye but she can see. She may also have slight hearing loss but she can hear and does respond to sound. She does amazing in a kennel, no peep out of her and walks so-so on a leash. She's been a breeder dog her entire life, but no more litters for this little gal, though! She's on to a better life with a family to call all her own. If you think you are that person, we welcome your application!"

Her current bio: She was surrendered back to us because they stated she didn't really take to the husband. He could hold her but when he'd put her down, she'd run and hide from him. We don't have a lot of males at our rescue but of the ones we do have, they've been able to hold her and not really have the same experience as the first adopter. Maybe he reminded her of a bad experience or something we don't know but it's important we disclose this information to potential adopters. She sleeps in a kennel at night and walks ok on a leash. You can expect that she's not housetrained and it is stated on the return form that she is not housetrained. Breeder dogs are used to urinating, defecating, eating, drinking and giving birth all in the same kennel. You have to remember that she has been a breeder dog her entire life so housetraining won't be overnight, if at all. She does well during grooming. If you are still interested in giving her a home and you have read all the above and understand all of the above, 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!

*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.

*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. 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.
