Maverick, estimated to be 2 years old, is a Yellow Lab mix with a big personality and the temperament of a teddybear.  He is a thin, 75 lb., former street dog so he needs to put on some weight and is in the process of learning manners.  He is very people friendly and would love to be a lap dog.  He enjoys staying near his family and is somewhat protective of them.  Maverick is very smart and learns quickly.  He gets along well with other dogs; however, how Maverick does with cats, depends on the cat.  We don't think he would ever hurt a cat, but, if the cat runs, he will chase it.  Maverick loves to play, but he is too enthusiasic and rambuctious to play with young children since he may knock them over.  Going for rides in the car, going for walks, and sleeping at the foot of the bed are things that this sweet dog enjoys.  Maverick is housebroken.  If you are looking for a buddy, you can’t do better than Maverick.

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.
