Rhett is an adult Catahoula mix, approximately 12 months old, who is very intelligent.  He gets along well with people in small groups, but he becomes anxious when in a crowd.  He is selective about what dogs he likes so he should meet any resident dogs in a prospective home before his adoption.  Rhett knows several basic commands, such as “sit” and “no”, and he can easily learn others with consistency and beef jerky which is his favorite treat. Rhett especially loves the children that he has met in his foster home; however, young children are not recommended since he may knock them over in his enthusiasm to play.  He is 90% housebroken and goes to the door when he wants to be let out.  When outside, he loves to track animal scents, and he can easily jump over a 4-foot fence if there are enticing scents that he is compelled to follow . Therefore, a 6-foot privacy fence is recommended.  Rhett needs plenty of physical and mental stimulation to keep him out of trouble.  If allowed to become bored. Rhett seeks his own entertainment with such things as toilet bowl brushes, children’s toys, shoes, blankets, pencils, and basically anything he shouldn’t have.

The suggested adoption donation for Rhett is $350, 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.  If you would like to welcome Rhett into your home, please begin by submitting our Adoption Application.  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. We do not ship or deliver the dogs.  If you would like to learn more about Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue, or donate to our dogs, please visit our website at  We invite you to visit our Facebook Page, and when you visit, please don't forget to Like our Facebook page so that you won’t miss any information about our dogs and events!


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...

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.
