Story
Bella (b. 7/2018), a Chihuahua/Dachshund Mix, is a bit misunderstood. Here's the thing with Bella, she LOVES her people and is a complete sweetheart who enjoys snuggling, playing in the backyard, and giving kisses and has done well with other dogs in her own home. However, she is a bit more particular when it comes to strangers and new dogs. Bella can get overprotective and has tried to use her teeth to deter new people from getting too close to her and, in some instances, has bitten. Bella has a good heart and will need an owner with lots of patience and willing to put in the work. Bella will need some training to help with her reactivity and how she responds to new people. She needs a well-fitted harness because if she can wiggle her way out of it and run, she will. Bella would prefer an adult-only home with somebody who works from home or is home often that can let her outside for frequent potty breaks, as her bladder can leak if you let it get too full - this may be due to her previous pregnancy or hysterectomy. Bella is really just looking for a family that will be understanding of her and take her for lots of walks with snuggles afterward! The suggested adoption donation for Bella is $265. Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization which means that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We are a 100% volunteer rescue committed to giving animals a second chance at life. All donations go toward that mission. Adoption fees are the primary source of funding for the cost of veterinary care for our animals.  In 2020 alone, we were able to provide animal Healthcare costing over $241,000 covered mainly through adoption fees. Please Note: A Courtesy Post designates that an animal is still in the home of its owner and not in a Muddy Paws foster. This means that our exposure to the animal is limited since we are only assisting the owner in finding a new home for their pet. If needed, we will put you in touch with the owner if you have any questions. Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once your application is approved, we will put you in touch with the animal’s foster to see if you and the pet are a good match. If so, we will arrange a meeting for you and the animal. The adoptions for all of our animals will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver.  Please Note: We are a RESCUE, which is different from a shelter. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks during the application approval process. We always select the right applicant for each animal, based on the animal’s needs. If you and the animal are not a good match, we will help you select another animal, or we will keep your approved application on file for 6 months.  To learn about Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue or donate to our animals, please visit our website at MuddyPawsSecondChanceRescue.com or our Facebook Page. ##1469617##

Story
Chip (b 7/2021) a Chihuahua. Chip is a laid-back guy that is looking for a place to exercise and have a consistent schedule.  Chip loves other dogs and would do great in a home with another fur sibling.  He is house trained but does mark but we are working on it. His nickname with his foster due to his "little dog syndrome" (he thinks he is the biggest, baddest boy on the block) is El Chapo. He takes a little bit to warm up to people but once he does, he will be on your lap, giving you kisses.  He is very curious and very goofy. The suggested adoption donation for Chip is $300, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training). Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization meaning that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We are a 100% volunteer rescue committed to giving animals a second chance at life.

We do not ship or deliver.  Alter Agreement:  If the dog or cat you adopt is older than 6 months of age and not spayed or neutered, you will receive a voucher to alter the pet at Val Verde Animal Hospital in Omaha, at no cost to you.  Or you can alter the pet at your own vet and be reimbursed $80 for dogs, and $50 for cats, of total cost.  If the dog or cat is younger than 6 months of age, adopter will be responsible for the cost of altering the pet at the vet of their choice.  If proof of alter is received by Muddy Paws prior to the pet turning 6 months of age, a reimbursement of $80 for dogs, and $50 for cats, will be sent to you to help cover expenses. All puppies and kittens MUST be spayed or neutered by 6 months of age.  All dogs and cats MUST be spayed or neutered no later than one month after adoption is finalized.

Story
Spearow is a young Chihuahua mix, born appx March 2022.  He is looking for a new home because his owner became sick and is unable to care for him.  He is fast and athletic.  He loves to go on walks and loves being outside!  Spearow is unsure of new people, but he will snuggle with you on his terms.  If you're lucky, he will even let you pet him and give him belly rubs.  Spearow is not a fan of big dogs, but he has participated in dog play groups at NHS and might be okay with smaller dogs in the home.  He sleeps in a pet bed in his foster mom's bedroom and he likes to have a blanket over him.  Spearow will need a quiet home with people that have experience with Chihuahuas.  He is very protective of his food, space and belongings, so it would be better for him if there are no children in the home.  He prefers women to men.  Spearow is a little guy weighing in at appx 10 pounds, so he won't take up much space!  Apply to adopt this cutie-pie today!  The suggested adoption donation for Spearow is $400, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training).  Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization meaning that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Story
Welcome to rescue, Chandi!  She doesn't know it yet but Chandi is beginning a life of leisure and love after being released from years of breeding and confinement in a midwestern commercial breeder. Right now, this sweet soul is adjusting to her new surroundings and learning about life outside of a cage. Touching grass, sleeping on a soft bed, the freedom to walk where she wants, and how to feel comfortable around humans are all brand new experiences to this little survivor. Over the next few weeks, she'll be learning about trust while soaking up all the love she's missed along the way! We'll have lots of updates about Chandi as she settles into her next chapter! The suggested adoption donation for Chandi is $350, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training).  Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization meaning that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Story
This handsome Chihuahua is Snoopy, born 2021.  He needs a new place with a secure fenced yard - he likes to explore on his own if he can get out of the yard or house.  Snoopy is shy and has not had a lot of socialization - because of that, he's a little slow to warm up to people, but he is a lover and a great lap dog!  He is fully potty trained.  Snoopy is good with other dogs that are his size.  He loves going outside.  He prefers wearing a harness when he's going out for a walk - he is scared of the leash dangling in front of him if he's not wearing a harness.  This little boy is a gem and just needs someone that will be patient with him while he learns the routine! He would probably be okay with older kids (12+). Apply to adopt this little teddy bear today!  The suggested adoption donation for Snoopy is $400, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training).  Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization meaning that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
