Meet Opie who was born approximately September 12, 2016.  His mother, Daisy, is a “designer breed” called a Chiweenie, which is a mix of Chihuahua and Dachshund, and his father is unknown.  Opie is an energetic little guy who loves to play with other dogs or by himself with toys. He would do well in a home with other dogs or children who can keep up with his playfulness. When he's not playing, Opie would love to be cuddled up with you!  He is working on potty training and consistently potties when taken outside. He is also working on kennel training and does well being put in the kennel; however, he gets lonely when left for long periods of time. He will need lots of love and toys!

Applications are being accepted now, but adoption can’t take place before the week of November 6th.  Since Opie 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 he 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 Opie 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.
