Facts about Squeakers

  • Breed: Lhasa Apso
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 8706160

Squeakers almost didn’t make it.  This Lhasa Apso was being starved and weighed only 8 lbs. when he was turned in to a shelter. His hair was matted and he was so weak, he wasn’t even able to walk for 3 days while the shelter tried to get him the nourishment he so badly needed.  After several weeks of regular meals and medical care, he was healthy enough to be neutered.  Squeakers is now current on all of his vaccinations and back to being a healthier weight of about 16 lbs. (18 lbs. would be ideal weight), but he is protective of his food.  He will take treats nicely, but guards his food dish, so he either needs to be left alone while eating or we will provide training to change the behavior in his new home. Squeakers is also house trained and very affectionate to those he trusts. He is cautious of strangers who approach him quickly, but usually goes to them if they ignore him. His estimated birth date is 5/2/2009.

He loves to sit on your lap for petting or just to take a nap while you lounge and watch TV.  Squeakers enjoys walks and does okay with other dogs his size, but would do best as an only dog in a home without children.  With cats, sometimes he ignores them and sometimes he barks at them, so we wouldn't recommend he be left alone in a home with a cat.  He does not like getting bathed, so professional grooming is recommended with a warning that he may nip. Squeakers has had a rough few years and now, as a senior, he is ready for a home life that will show him the love and attention he deserves with an owner who provides structure and leadership.  If you are looking for a loyal companion who desperately needs a good home and someone to love him, then Squeakers could be the one for you.

About Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue (NNKCR) was formed by five people who had a dream that one day all adoptable dogs in Lancaster County would find loving homes.

To accomplish this, we do three things:
Rescue dogs
Rehabilitate dogs
Re-home dogs

NNKCR is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit dog rescue group. We provide emergency foster care for homeless dogs, veterinary care for dogs in our care and find forever homes for homeless dogs. NNKCR is an all-volunteer organization, and 100% of all funds donated go toward our rescue efforts and the dogs in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We take advantage of local events sponsored by businesses such as PetSmart, PetCo, Subaru, Verizon and Tractor Supply Company, as well as local fund raisers put on by rescue groups. We are also happy to arrange meet and greets with people who would like to see a dog they saw on our website or at an adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

All prospective adopters contact the group via our website and are required to fill out an adoption form. Volunteers check references and do a home visit. A "meet and greet" is arranged if other family members or pets are involved.
Adoption fees are generally $250.00 for dogs 6 months to 7 years; $150.00 for dogs over 7 years. If a puppy is adopted, the adoption fee is $450.00, but $200 of that is refunded once we have documentation that the animal has been altered. All adult dogs are altered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and tested for heartworm. If the adoption does not work out, NNCKR requires that the dog be returned to us.
