Story
Being a German Shorthair & Hound mix, you can imagine that ol' Oscar Podrick is a lover of the outdoors! This sweet boy was born in May of 2015 and is still looking for a place to call his own. Oscar enjoys being around people, especially ladies, but he understands what it's like to need some space: your time, my time, and our time! Oscar experiences anxiety and, because of this, boundaries are important to him. When his anxiety is low, Oscar is a goofy, playful boy who likes to chase balls, sticks, and rabbits. He loves, loves, loves long walks with plenty of time to let his hound nose get some exercise, and lots of exercise helps work off that extra energy that can make this handsome boy nervous! Because of his love for exploration, Oscar will need a fenced in yard to keep him close to home. Oscar is not kennel trained but is totally fine being left to lounge around the house while you're away; he's also housetrained so no worries about that business! Oscar is a very smart dog who knows "sit" "stay" "lay down" "leave it" and he also knows that when he follows these fun words he gets really yummy treats! Oscar's ideal home will be with an active person/couple who loves to explore nature, just like he does, and who will love him like family while respecting his need for boundaries and independence! The suggested adoption donation for Oscar is $315.  We are a 501c3 organization which means that your donation may be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.  Your donation goes toward the high cost of veterinary care for our animals in rescue, as well as providing supportive services to animals in homes. 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 dog’s foster to see if you and the pet are a good match.  If so, we will arrange a meeting for you and the pet.  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 dog, based on the dog’s needs.  If you and the dog are not a good match, we will help you select another dog, or we will keep your approved application on file for 6 months.

Story
Baez Era or Baezy Boy (b. 10/2019), a handsome Dalmatian, is looking for a forever home. Baez Era is being rehomed because, well, he doesn't know his size. He gets excited and accidentally pushes down the little kids. He would do best in a home with older children (10 years old and older please) or none at all. He needs a fenced-in yard to run out his energy, but you will have to watch so he doesn't dig to the center of the earth. While outside he is a professional fetch player and would love a friend to throw his toys for him! He would not do well in an apartment because he does not like to be away from his people and tends to sing his troubles away. He doesn't like his kennel because he wants to be around his people. He thinks he is a lap dog and a huge lover, like for real, this dog loves cuddles more then life. He loves the ladies and prefers to be in their company. In regards to other canine friends in the home, Baez is open to the idea. He does prefer the calmer canine friends though! If you are ready to show Baez Era all the attention and all the scratches behind his ears, then please put that application in.   Baez can be shy, and due to this will require multiple introductions to ensure he is comfortable! The suggested adoption donation for Baez Era is $350. 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. All donations go toward that mission. Adoption fees are the primary source of funding for the cost of veterinary care for our animals. In 2021 alone, we provided animal Healthcare totaling over $307,000 covered mainly through adoption fees.  Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION.

Story
Dobbie, a Pointer Mix, born approximately December of 2022.  Dobbie came to our rescue fighting for her life against the deadly virus, Parvo.  Dobbie fought and beat parvo!!  She is great with dogs but working on personal space, and not being so mouthy. She has learned to play with toys by herself and loving it.  She loves playing in the yard and WATER.  She still barks a lot so an apartment might not be the best for her. An amazing home would be one with a back yard that she can run around in, or even someone that enjoys going camping and being outside! She is very treat motivated.  She is now completely potty trained and trained to ring a bell when she needs to go outside.  Her favorite game is searching and chasing bugs outside.  Once that task is done she likes to just sun bathe.  Would Dobbie be the perfect pup for your family? The suggested adoption donation for Dobbie is $350. Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization meaning that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
