Facts about Duke

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix

If you’re looking for a little royalty in your life, we have a Duke in need of a good home.  This friendly senior Pit Bull mix was born in March of 2006 and lived in the same home since he was 7 weeks old. His owner is moving to a new home where Duke isn’t allowed.  Duke lost his family and home, then found out he is heartworm positive, but fortunately this was caught very early. His heartworm treatment has been modified for an older dog, but it has been started. He is current on his vaccinations and is an active dog when outside, but mostly a laid-back dog when inside. He gets along with people of all sizes and other dogs, but should not share a home with a cat. We do recommend that children be of school age so they understand not to climb on him or accidentally fall on him.  He enjoys going for walks and car rides and very much enjoys laying on his blanket, which he prefers over plain carpet.  Duke weighs in at about 65 lbs., he is house-trained and used a crate in the past.  He’s pretty mellow in the evenings and is happy to lay beside you on the couch if permitted or at your feet.  His ideal home would have a fenced yard that he can play in and a family to love him. Duke would be wonderful company for someone looking for a loyal companion who doesn’t want to go through all the puppy mischief.  This senior deserves a permanent home.

About Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue (NNKCR) was formed by five people who had a dream that one day all adoptable dogs in Lancaster County would find loving homes.

To accomplish this, we do three things:
Rescue dogs
Rehabilitate dogs
Re-home dogs

NNKCR is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit dog rescue group. We provide emergency foster care for homeless dogs, veterinary care for dogs in our care and find forever homes for homeless dogs. NNKCR is an all-volunteer organization, and 100% of all funds donated go toward our rescue efforts and the dogs in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We take advantage of local events sponsored by businesses such as PetSmart, PetCo, Subaru, Verizon and Tractor Supply Company, as well as local fund raisers put on by rescue groups. We are also happy to arrange meet and greets with people who would like to see a dog they saw on our website or at an adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

All prospective adopters contact the group via our website and are required to fill out an adoption form. Volunteers check references and do a home visit. A "meet and greet" is arranged if other family members or pets are involved.
Adoption fees are generally $250.00 for dogs 6 months to 7 years; $150.00 for dogs over 7 years. If a puppy is adopted, the adoption fee is $450.00, but $200 of that is refunded once we have documentation that the animal has been altered. All adult dogs are altered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and tested for heartworm. If the adoption does not work out, NNCKR requires that the dog be returned to us.
