Good with dogs, Good with cats, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
THIS POST WILL BE REMOVED WHEN THE DOG IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. INQUIRIES ABOUT THE ADOPTION STATUS WILL NOT BE RETURNED. Nora is a 21 month old Maltese/Yorkie mix recently released from a commercial breeding facility. She is learning the life of a pampered pet in her foster home and is loving the playful resident canines. Nora is discovering squeaky toys, soft dog beds, fluffy blankets and gentle touches. Nora will thrive in a family that can give her time and patience to grow and thrive. Children over the age of 10 please. She will need a resident canine companion and playmate and a securely fenced yard for her safety. Nora is a well-mannered and gentle female dog, who is looking for a loving home. Nora is dignified and is learning to live the life of a pampered pet outside the commercial breeding system. Nora has a calm demeanor and she is a very quiet dog who seldom barks. She loved other dogs and will need a playful resident dog in her forever home in addition to a securely fenced yard to keep her safely contained. A patient adult owner with a calm environment will be ideal for Nora. The suggested adoption donation for Nora is a minimum of $600 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

Maltese Poodle (Standard)

Female, 4 yrs 5 mos
Council Bluffs, IA
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Needs special attention, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Nessa (b. 1/2020) is a Maltipoo with a very sad past... While driving on a cold afternoon in December, a good samaritan caught a glimpse of this 11 lb pup laying in a ditch. They immediately stopped and scooped up this little gal who was alive but paralyzed from a broken back. After having no luck finding her family, an MP volunteer was contacted and Nessa was quickly brought to rescue. Numerous clinics and specialists were consulted and it has been determined that Nessa is not a candidate for surgery. Nessa is a master scooter and a total diva.  Nessa needs a home that understands her needs and will allow her to live out her diva life.  There are a number of potential complications that Nessa may experience, which means her future is uncertain. Therefore, this sweetheart is looking for a foster to adopt or furever foster who can stomach the hard truths that come with a pet in Nessa's condition. Nessa will need a situation that allows for her best human friend to be home more often than not, and will need to be kenneled when left alone to make sure she stays safe. She requires a diaper and regular maintenance throughout the day to keep her clean and feeling comfy! Muddy Paws will continue to monitor Nessa's health and will provide on-going financial support for her future. Nessa loves to be carried around the house by her foster and she's got a good eye for making sure everything is in its place! Nessa is a sweet pup who loves to give kisses and is the best little couch cuddler you could ask for. For now, Nessa is nestled up comfortable, safe, warm, and living her best life! If you are curious about Nessa and her requirements, reach out to Muddy Paws for more information. Due to her medical needs, Nessa needs an adopter / foster that lives within a 50 mile radius.  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. 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 or our Facebook Page  ##1289605##

Bichon Frise

Male, Young
Omaha, NE
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Good with dogs, Good with cats, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Blue is a sweet boy.  He turns 1yr this month.  He is neutered and current on vaccinations.  He gets along with other dogs and has lived with cats.  Not been around cats but we don't see an issue there.  He is a timid boy since he had love but no socialization with new people or places.  He is still very much a puppy that likes toys.  He is about 15lbs.  He looks like a terrier but then those eyes tell you all bichon.    To help pay for vet bills and care (transportation, food, toys, etc..) a $300 donation is requested at the time of adoption. All of our adoptions are contingent upon an approved application, home visit, reference check, obedience training agreement, and signing of adoption contract. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption. Our dogs are companion animals that live indoors as part of your family. Please do not apply if your plan is to have them as outside dogs, garage dogs, porch dogs or outside kennel dogs.  We do not ship dogs.   All of our dogs are in private foster homes. We are not a shelter with hours. A visit can be arranged after an adoption questionnaire has been filled out and sent in. Please try to email first. We are all volunteers that work so we can not easily take or make phone calls.June 15, 2024, 5:04 pm
