Facts about Denali

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 33002434

Denali, age 5, needs to catch a break. He was found as a stray, emaciated, with signs of being severely abused or neglected. He had stains on his underside and legs from lying on own urine and was very thin. But in spite of all this, his spirit and personality are loving and kind. This little 10-pound guy is very, very smart and a bit of a prankster. He loves to tease other dogs in a playful way and will run and chase them for hours. Because of his background, Denali is a bit fearful when meeting new people so he needs time to get to know them, and once he does, his true personality emerges. You should see this boy dance and spin when he is happy! Denali loves to snuggle and loves to sleep under the covers. Denali is not all that fond of children so would do best in a home with no children. He loves being outside just exploring and lying in the sun so he would prefer a yard with a fence, but, if that is not possible, he needs someone committed to taking him for daily walks. He is leash trained and crate trained. He is working on his potty training manners and is making rapid progress. Could your home be the right one for him?

The suggested donation amount for Denali is $200, which is TAX DEDUCTIBLE, and goes toward providing supportive services to animals in the home, as well as the high cost of vetting our dogs in rescue.

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.
