Story
Ike Located in Dalton NE Chihuahua mix  07/28/2021 Birthday Dog friendly Cat friendliness unknown but likely fine  Will be fine with older children who are CALM and have dog manners, he is too WAY shy and gentle to be around loud crazy kids, he would get scared and very overwhelmed Not fully or consistently house trained, and knowing his breed this could be a long process. He gets cold easily and isn't a fan of potting outside in the cold haha. This being said he has already made positive movement on this topic  He is crate trained but doesn't love it. He needs a heartbeat stuffed animal or another dog to sleep with him. He also believes when kenneled that he can and should express all his opinions as loud as possible.  Doesn't know commands but is shockingly easy to motivate so he should be relatively easy to train LOTS of LOUD opinions, not an apartment appropriate dog, unless you're looking to get out of your lease, then he is the PERFECT dog  He is shy at first and will need a home that understands at first it may be a bit of a slower process than a usual dog, if you rush it he will never come around and end up returned so this is a serious aspect that you as an adopter need to consider realistically and carefully Needs to be adopted with his sibling Gil Likes to sleep under the covers, or in "cave" beds Fully vetted  8-9lbs approx These 2 boys are Ike (larger brindle) and Gilligan (smaller tan). These boys have been with us their whole lives (born 7/28/21) and while their foster absolutely LOVES them they deserve their FURever home. The issue is that they must go TOGETHER, everyone has wanted Gilligan but no one was also interested in Ike. These boys have the sweetest most healthy and delightful bond that splitting them up just isn’t in their best interest and would be cruel. Gil is more outgoing and comes around to ppl faster than Ike who is more shy. Gil is also 4lbs packed with hilarious antics and Ike is way more cuddly and sweet. Ike chooses his people and is just more cuddly with them vs others. However once they get to know and trust you both are crazy sweet. Together they are so opposite yet work together so perfectly. They play perfectly together and with other dogs extremely well. Ike does watch out for Gilligan, especially around larger dogs, as Gilligan seems to have no idea he's only 4lbs, it isn't aggressive at all just really sweet. If you’re interested in adding 2 precious little boys to your family don’t hesitate to reach out! Both boys are dog friendly. Both are likely fine with cats. Both would be fine with older non heathen kids (Gil is only 4lbs so needs children who understand “gentle”). Both are shy but not nippy at all, they will hide not fight. Both do ok with housetraining they could be more consistent but there is a lot going on in the current foster home so it's very inconsistent. Both love cuddling, cuddling with their ppl, cuddling with other dogs, cuddling with each other and both are use to sleeping with their human and each other. These 2 are the most delightful pair and deserve the most amazing home. We are NOT looking for a home that really just wants Gilligan but is willing to take Ike to get him. Both dogs are precious and deserves someone who loves them both equally and as much as their foster mom does.   Original PostIke was the 2nd born and the largest pup from the start. He knows he is the largest and will use it to get his way haha, but he is also the calmest and most content pup out of the 3. He is very sweet and outgoing. He is more independent and happy to run with the bigger dogs. He is going to make someone a fantastic family member.  $200.00 Adoption Fee  (Which is considered a non refundable donation and being we are a 501c3 organization it is tax deductible.

Original Description, which is still 100% trueGil was the 3rd pup born and 100% the most needy. He is 1/3 the size of his brother but he makes up for it in pure gumption! He has no fear, he loves to snuggle he's the tiniest little man with such HUGE personality. To this peanut every day is an adventure and he is down to live every moment to its fullest! He is going to keep someone on their toes and we cannot wait to meet his people!  $200.00 Adoption Fee  (Which is considered a non refundable donation and being we are a 501c3 organization it is tax deductible.

Story
Sugar is a sweet 11yr old Chihuahua mix who is looking for a home to spend the rest of her golden years in. Sugar is the perfect lap dog and enjoys her time in a comfy bed! She loves going on easy walks around the block but sometimes wears out after awhile. Sugar would be best in a low traffic home and with older dogs her size. The adoption fee is $200 and covers age appropriate vaccines, a microchip, and a spay/neuter.  Applications are typically worked in time stamp order based on date/time of submission.  If you have other dogs in your home, they must all meet the potential adoptee.  It may save you a trip to bring them with you when you visit, if you are certain you want to adopt a new family member. *****We are currently operating by appointment only due to a shortage of personnel.   If you want to meet this pet, or are interested in adopting, please submit an inquiry or email to tchspapillion@gmail.com.  Someone from the rescue will contact you and/or your family and determine, on a broad level, whether you might be a fit for the animal.  If so, they will provide instructions for completing the application. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted to set up a time to meet at the shelter or the foster home.   The introduction between you and the pet will be supervised by one of the dog counselors or the foster.   If all goes well, you can adopt during the same visit.

Story
Genivieve is a well loved, chubby 14lb chihuahua. She just turned 7 years old on 1/7/24. She is a long hair chihuahua. I dont think she sheds at all, if so, it is very minimal. Currently she goes to the groomers to get shaved in effort to keep her a little cleaner. Genivieve is a great dog. Shes good with all people, kids, cats, other dogs (maybe a little timid at first.) She is potty trained. She has been left to run free in the house while Im gone, but is currently kenneled while I am away. She is leash trained, but I also walk her without a leash, where it is safe, and she stays right next to me. She does not bark excessively, is obedient, and overall just a fun little dog. I am rehoming Genivieve because I am not longer able to give her the time and attention she deserves. And now Genivieve requires surgery. The surgery is relatively minor, it may cost approximately $400 to $600 based on the estimates I've recieved from 2 local vets. Will discuss specifics with potential adopter

Story
THIS POST WILL BE REMOVED WHEN THE DOG IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. INQUIRIES ABOUT THE ADOPTION STATUS WILL NOT BE RETURNED. Libby arrived in rescue with her father, Barney Rubble, when their owner unexpectedly passed away. The family was able to make arrangements for the other animals but felt it best that Libby and Barney enter rescue. Libby is a cautiously optimistic gal who will bond quickly to her humans, once she determines you are trustworth. She is a happy, tiny girl who loves to snuggle and lives peacefully with other dogs....just don't ask her to share her food! She is crate trained and house trained......leash manners will come with practice once she is more confident of her surroundings. Libby could live as an only dog if there was someone home most of the day. Applicants with a securely fenced yard will be given priority. Children over age 10, please. The suggested adoption donation for Libby is a minimum of $400 and goes toward the high cost of veterinary care for our rescue dogs.Wag N Train Terrier Rescue adopts to an extended geographical area as long as we can locate a local volunteer to perform the required home visit. Approved adopters are required to travel to Omaha, NE to pick up their newly adopted dog. We do not arrange transport, or fly our rescue dogs without a "pet nanny". All of our dogs that come from a commercial breeding facility require a securely fenced yard AND a resident companion dog, unless the dog's bio states otherwise. Please note, invisible or underground fencing is not considered secure or appropriate containment. Adoption applications can be found at www.wagntrainterrierrescue.com/adoption-information

Story
Humberto is a 7 year-old Chihuahua mix who is a often misunderstood potato. He loves walks and cuddles and just hanging out with you! Humberto LOVES his stuff and can get a bit spicy when you try to take things from him. Patience and trust are needed when in his space. Humberto is not too sure of dogs and cats and doesn't trust strangers when he first meets them. He can get a bit mouthy and loud but he means well. Humberto would do best in a home with a family that has older children and will help Humberto with his weight loss and his resource guarding.  The adoption fee is $250 and covers age appropriate vaccines, a microchip, and a spay/neuter.  Applications are typically worked in time stamp order based on date/time of submission.  If you have other dogs in your home, they must all meet the potential adoptee.  It may save you a trip to bring them with you when you visit, if you are certain you want to adopt a new family member. *****We are currently operating by appointment only due to a shortage of personnel.   If you want to meet this pet, or are interested in adopting, please submit an inquiry or email to tchspapillion@gmail.com.  Someone from the rescue will contact you and/or your family and determine, on a broad level, whether you might be a fit for the animal.  If so, they will provide instructions for completing the application.
