Bella, a 9-year-old Miniature Pinscher, is a small dog with a big personality. Outgoing, friendly and queenly, Bella LOVES attention.  And, does she ever love a belly rub!  She is housebroken, good with children and gets along with other dogs.  Bella is sometimes territorial with her things, but she is learning to share.  Bella came into rescue at almost double the weight that is appropriate for her breed and age, making it hard for her to breathe.  Since arriving in rescue, with walking and portion control (and no human food!!),  she has already gone from 17 lbs. to 13 lbs. That's FOUR pounds less of Bella!  Bella loves to walk, and now it isn't as difficult for her.  She can even jump up on the couch and her favorite chair more easily. Bella still needs to watch her weight so her new owner will need to continue Bella's diet and exercise.  Bella is looking forward to her forever home!!

Update on Bella (6/22/2016):  Bella has just been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. She has been put on Lasix and Benzapril, which she will most likely need for the rest of her life. With good care, she could live months or years. Bella does not have a heart murmur. This set-back has not affected her spirit or energy level. She is still a very happy sweetie. 

If you are age 65 or older, you and Bella qualifiy for our senior for senior discount.

About Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue, Inc. is a not for profit organization formed in 2014 by a small group of devoted animal lovers, in the Council Bluffs/Omaha area, with many years of rescue experience wanting to make a difference in the lives of dogs. Our rescue focuses on small breed dogs, less than 35 pounds, of any age. It is all volunteer based, and all of our rescue dogs are living in the homes of our volunteers.
Our rescue is unique in that we offer supportive services, such as education and training, to owners considering relinquishing their pet in an effort to try to keep the dog in their home whenever possible. We also educate and offer placement assistance to owners attempting to rehome their pets through social media sites, which can often be risky for the pets as well as the owners.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Watch for Meet and Greets where you are invited to meet our dogs. Individual meetings can also be scheduled.

Our Adoption Process...

Fill out an application on our website. After the vet and personal references have been called, a home visit will be scheduled. If it is determined that the dog is a good match for the family, and vise versa, an adoption date will be arranged.
Suggested donations amounts are based on vetting expenses incurred, age, physical condition, etc.
