Meet Shasta, who was born approximately September 12, 2016.  Her mother, Daisy, is a “designer breed” called a Chiweenie, which is a mix of Chihuahua and Dachshund, and her father is unknown.  Shasta is a feisty girl!  She sasses back and lets you know when she wants something! She already barks when someone comes to the door!  She is confident and smart and is working on potty training. Shasta loves to sleep close and cuddle but is also very independent and will go find her own sleeping spots!  Shasta loves cats and other dogs but would do best in a home with no small children. She loves her toys and to play tug of war with her sister, or take off with anything that is not hers! Shasta will definitely be more Doxie than Chihuahua in looks and in personality!

Since Shasta is too small to be altered at this time, the adopters will be provided with a voucher to have the puppy altered and microchipped by the time she is 6 months of age.   This must be done at Nebraska Humane Society.  If you prefer to take the puppy to your own vet, we will pay a PORTION of the cost ($60) to your vet of choice.

The suggested donation amount for Shasta is $425, 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.  To fill out an application, please visit the following web address: http://www.muddypawssecondchancerescue.com/#!adopt-a-pet/c7cy The adoptions for all of our dogs will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person.

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.
