Dog Walks With a Wobble, But It Doesn’t Slow Him Down
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.
Meet the sweetest little wobble boy, Banana Joe. He's a Pomeranian/Sheltie mix and is probably 2-3 years old he came in weighing at 18.2 pounds so he’s a big boy by Ninna's Road to Rescue standards. His adoption fee is $100, which includes vetting, microchip, and a microchip enrollment fee. Keep in mind this poor baby boy has a deformity and that's why he walks a little differently with a wobble.
Here is what the crew at Ninna's Road to Rescue had to say about this precious boy: "Banana Joe came to us from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter. He has a deformity of the spine which he’s had since birth we were told. Our vet confirmed the deformity through x-ray. He walks and runs a little funny... but hey... who cares right? It just makes him special! His video will show you how he wobbles and skips. At the shooting of the video we hadn’t tested him with other dogs, although we kind of suspected he may have an issue with other dogs because of how he acted in his kennel when another dog was around. We did test him and determined he would be best as the only dog. He seems to think other dogs are squeaky toys and as we all know, they are not. He’d be great for keeping rodents away from your home… that’s for sure. Who needs a cat, when you have Banana Joe! He does great in a kennel and walks well on a leash. He has lots of personality and if you can handle having Banana Joe as your only pet, he’d be a great addition to your home!"
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)."
