Sissy was picked up as a stray, never claimed and she ended up on the disposable dog list. She has a very sweet temperament and was a favorite of the shelter workers who contacted Nebraska No Kill to save her life.  We believe Sissy is a Norwegian Elkhound mix, between 5 and 6 years of age.  She is current on all of her vaccinations, recently spayed and at 46 lbs., she’s a bit on the heavy side. She walks well on a leash and knows some of her basic commands. She is house trained, but not trained to a crate. She isn’t destructive if left loose in the home, but will counter surf if there is something that smells edible.  Her overall health is good, but she has tear stains that we believe are due to allergies. We are giving her eye drops and better food and expecting to see an improvement. Her sight and hearing appear normal. Sissy is a very affectionate dog who loves people and does best with other dogs her size or smaller. She is somewhat intimidated by larger dogs and doesn’t care for cats. She is a lower energy dog who would be content in a home that is also lower activity, but she does enjoy going for walks.  Sissy is not food aggressive or toy aggressive and will make someone a wonderful companion. What makes her happy is being able to be with her person. Her perfect home would be with someone who has retired and has time to spend with her.  Sissy is a loving and loyal dog who will keep her new owner(s) entertained and be great company.

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.
