Zu-zu

Pomeranian

DOB 2/20/2008

Female, spayed

 

Isabelle who goes by “Zu-zu” is 12 pounds of love and fluff!  This little Pomeranian girl is friendly to everyone she meets, but she’s never met a cat.  If you’re looking for a lap dog who is very soft to pet and is house-trained to a mat, Zu just might be the right one for you.  Zu-zu likes other dogs and is good with children.  She’s very bouncy and happy if there is someone new to meet or when she has some outside time, but she settles in well when inside.  Zu is not protective of her food or toys, she’s current on her vaccines and is trained to hop in her travel bag if you want to take her with you.  Zu-zu will require regular grooming to prevent matting and she would make an excellent companion for an older person or anyone living in an apartment. If you have a yard for her to play in, she’d like that too!  Zu-zu is being re-homed because her owner is in hospice care.

 

Scooter

Dachshund/ Beagle

5 years old

Male neutered

 

Scooter is a friendly Dachshund/ Beagle/ Pug mix who would love to have a home where he can get his New Year’s resolution off to a good start.  Like a lot of us, Scooter’s goal is to lose some weight and get more exercise and he’d like a partner to work with.  Could that be you?  Scooter was born 12/27/08. Now weighing in at 32 lbs., he has already lost 8 lbs.!  He knows a few of his basic commands and also understands several words…he absolutely lights up if you say “treat”!  Scooter likes small dogs, is good with children (as long as they don’t try to pick him up) and he is comfortable around cats.  He is not protective of his food or toys, could use some work on his leash training and was crate trained at one time.  Scooter is current on all of his vaccinations, mostly house-trained (needs regular schedule) and ready to start his new life with the right family.

 

Herbie

3 years old

Male neutered

 

Herbie is a 3 year old Shepherd mix that has a beautiful red coat and a fun personality. He loves to run and play in the back yard, but is very calm when inside. Herbie is being rehomed due to his family not having enough time for him. He currently lives with a small dog and plays well with him, but he would prefer to be an only dog.  Herbie would do best around children 10 years or older. He is smart and knows his basic commands. The best part about Herbie is that he is a lover and will snuggle all evening with you on the couch. He is both house and crate trained, micro-chipped, current on vaccinations and not possessive of food or toys. An active home where this 45 pound boy will be included in daily activities along with a fenced yard would be an ideal fit.

 

Baxter

Shepherd Mix

DOB 3/26/07

Male, neutered

 

This friendly Shepherd mix was raised on a bottle and very loyal to his family.  When their toddler tripped over Baxter while he was sleeping and was nipped,  so Baxter wasn’t invited  to go with his family when they moved.   Baxter loves to play and gets along with most other dogs and he was comfortable living with cats.  He is somewhat high energy, especially if he sees a squirrel!  He walks well on a leash and knows sit, down, shake, high five, speak and kennel.  At 70 lbs., Baxter doesn’t see himself as a big dog and still loves to cuddle on your lap if he is allowed.  He is afraid of storms and fireworks and takes medication to ease his anxiety in those situations.  He loves to go for walks/ runs and was running 3 miles on a regular basis at one time.  Baxter is house-trained and was crated several years ago before he was allowed free roam of the house.  He is current on his vaccinations, micro-chipped and ready for a forever home.

Ziggy is both house trained and crate trained and he knows his basic commands.  He needs a refresher on proper leash etiquette, because he has started to pull when he sees something of interest.   He is not protective of food or toys and he enjoys the company of most adults.  Ziggy prefers to avoid the vacuum and the mower, …but who doesn’t. Ziggy is current on vaccinations and will be micro-chipped prior to adoption.   He has a great personality and he’s ready to fill your order for 75 pounds of loving.

He is current on his vaccinations and micro-chipped.  Gambit needs a fenced yard and a home without young children, cats or other dogs. He can be protective of food or toys with other dogs.  He is playful, very affectionate and loves petting and being with his humans.

Jade

Pit Bull

5 years old

Female, spayed

 

Jade is a 5 year old Pit Bull mix who loves to be around people. She is looking for a family that will incorporate her into their lifestyle as the only pet in the house initially. Jade loves to play, run and will never turn you down for a game of fetch. At around 50 pounds she is what we like to call a mini-pittie. Jade is crate trained, house trained, and knows basic commands like “sit” and “no”. She does have allergies, so Jade must be on a grain free diet. Jade is currently with a foster and improving each day adjusting from a shelter to home environment. She came to NNKCR via Council Bluffs Animal Shelter. Council Bluffs has BSL so the only way Jade could leave the shelter was to be released to a rescue and that is where Nebraska No Kill was able to help. Jade is spayed, micro-chipped and current on all vaccinations. If you are interested in Jade or have questions about her, please send us an email at Info@nebraskanokill.org.

 

Tiny

Chihuahua/ Chinese Crested?

D.O.B. 11/14/06

Male, neutered

 

Tiny’s owner recently passed away and now this 4 pound Chihuahua mix is looking for a new home. He was very attached to his owner and spent a lot of his time on her lap where they provided comfort to each other. He is shy of strangers, but has gotten along with other dogs he’s met.  Tiny has not been around cats, so his reaction to them is an unknown, but we suspect he wouldn’t want to share a lap with one.  He is house trained and had free roam of his home.  He is a low energy dog who would be happy to resume is place on someone’s lap in a quiet home.  Tiny is current on his vaccinations and not protective of his food or toys.  He doesn’t know a lot of tricks, but comes when called and understands to be quiet if told.  Tiny would not do well in a home with young children.  If you are looking for a little cuddler to keep you company, Tiny could be your boy.

 

Tinkerbell

Pomeranian

DOB 7/18/2007

Female, spayed

 

Tinkerbell is back from Never-Never Land and looking for a new home. Tink is a happy Pomeranian who is friendly to everyone she meets. She enjoys the company of other dogs, but at only 5 pounds, she should only be around dogs who will play gentle with her.  Tink has never been introduced to a cat, but she would probably see cats as s omeone else to play with.  She is current on her vaccinations, house-trained to a mat and trained to hop in her travel bag for transport.  She is not protective of her toys, but doesn’t want to share her food with other dogs.  Tink is playful and also very affectionate as a lap dog. Tink’s long fluffy hair will require regular grooming and she may need a little fairy dust now and then to keep her flying.  She would make an excellent companion for an older person or anyone living in an apartment. If you have a yard for her to play in, she’d like that too! Tinkerbell is being re-homed because her owner is in hospice care.

 

Leia

English Springer Spaniel

DOB 06/15/08

Female, spayed

 

Leia is an English Springer Spaniel looking for a home where she can become part of the family.  She is friendly has done well people of all sizes, but she tends to trust women more than men.  She is house-trained and crated at one time, but is use to being able to roam the house.  Leia’s energy level is currently medium-high, but she hadn’t been getting regular exercise.  She is good on a leash, will heel and knows a few basic commands.  Like many English Springers, she is sensitive to tone of voice, so a low toned “No” is all that is needed for correction and you’ll know by her big sad eyes that she’s sorry.  She doesn’t like loud noises, like fireworks or people yelling and will hide from these sounds. Leia gets along with small dogs and cats, but has not been around larger dogs.  She loves to be petted and enjoys being close to her people.  Leia is current on her vaccinations and will be micro-chipped before she goes to her new home.  If you’re looking for a companion and have a relatively quiet household, Leia might be the right dog for you.

Est. DOB 7/10/13

Female, spayed

 

Alyssa was found running loose, late last year, when the weather was below freezing.  She was afraid of men and slow to warm up to strangers, but has made great improvements at her foster home.  She will still require patience to become comfortable, but once she trusts you, she is a snuggler.  Alyssa is comfortable with other dogs and playful with people she knows.  She is house-trained, knows some of her basic commands and is very calm when inside.  Her two favorite things are chasing a ball and lying next to her human.  Alyssa hasn’t met a cat yet, but we suspect she would chase them like she does squirrels.  Alyssa’s ideal home will have a 6 foot fenced yard to play in, low people traffic and a family who will continue to introduce her to new things and teach her to trust.

She weighs about 60 lbs.,is both house-trained and crate trained and medium to high energy.  Cali is cautious of strangers and prefers to meet people slowly.

Once he’s met you, he is happy to get some petting.  Rucker enjoys playing with other small dogs, is cautious of some larger dogs and has been okay with cats.  He does not do well around young children.  He has plenty of energy for playtime and would enjoy a home where he can run and get regular exercise.  He is crate trained, but needs some work on his house-training to be at 100%.

Floyd

German Shepherd mix

5 years old

Male neutered

 

Floyd was wearing a bandana with his name on it when he was picked up near a shelter in a southeastern Nebraska town.  It’s likely he was dropped off there with the hope that they would take him in and help find him a home, but the shelter was full. Floyd was placed in an outdoor kennel and given three days to find a place to go.  Fortunately, a foster was found!  Floyd is a very friendly dog who we believe is a German Shepherd mix.  He is great with other dogs and most people.  His energy level is average unless he’s outside for a game of fetch; definitely one of his favorite things to do.  He knows some of his basic commands, he is house and crate trained and current on his vaccinations. He needs a little work on his leash training and the do’s and don’ts of being loose in the house.  This boy is a lover and Floyd would be happy to spend his indoor time snuggled up to someone.  He has not been tested with cats, but he has a very laid back personality.  Floyd weighs about 48 lbs. and would love to go to a home where he can be part of a family who loves him.

She has a dominant personality and can be protective of her people, so she needs an owner who will be loving, consistent, and firm. When Annie warms up to you she’ll cuddle in beside you and work her way into your heart!  She usually gets along with large dogs, but can be bossy around smaller dogs and cats. Annie is 7 years old, 19 pounds, crate trained, micro-chipped, and up to date on all shots. Can you give this sweet girl a good home?

 

 

Max

Black Labrador

9 years old

Male neutered

 

Max is a 9 year old (who acts like he’s 5 yrs. old), neutered black lab who would love to find a home where he will be part of the family.  He is being re- homed because his current family has young children with allergies and no time for him.  He is house trained and crate trained.  He knows basic commands. Max would do best as an only dog and would prefer privacy fencing, but is not a fence jumper.  Max got along well with his roommate, Charlie the Brittany, but he doesn’t like all dogs.  He is current on his vaccinations, micro- chipped and taking a heartworm preventative. He is wonderful with people, loves to play fetch and is very good about giving the ball back so you can throw it again. Weighing in at 77 lbs. he would probably be better suited with older children.  He is super sweet, affectionate and loves to play in his baby pool!

 

Charlie

Brittany Spaniel

6 ½ years old

Male neutered

 

Charlie is a 6 1/2 year old Brittany Spaniel.  He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.  He is ready to move in to a home where he can become part of the family. He is being re-homed because his family had young children with allergies and no time for him. Charlie is house trained and crate trained.  He knows basic commands, and is very intelligent!  He has learned how to open gates, and an electric fence doesn't phase him. He doesn't climb fences, and gets along with all dogs and children. Charlie weighs 44 lbs., is low energy and not protective of his toys or food. If you could provide a home for Charlie, please email us at info@nebraskanokill.org.

 

Korra

Pit Bull

1 ½ years old

Female, spayed

 

Korra is a 1 1/2 year old Pit Bull mix. She was found as a stray in Central Nebraska. Thanks to social media and people sharing her story, Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue was able to locate a foster home just hours prior to her being euthanized and a ‘relay for life’ of volunteers teamed up to transport her to safety.

 

Korra loves everyone she meets.  A perfect day for her includes playing in the backyard, going for a walk/run, and then taking a nap next to you. She needs to go to an only dog/ no cats home. An ideal family will include her in their active lifestyle, have a safe fenced backyard and continue to work with Korra on her training. She is house and crate trained and not protective of her food or toys to people. Korra is spayed, micro-chipped, and up to date on all vaccinations. Korra is 60 pounds of playful energy who is looking for a home she can call her own.

 

Maggie

Basset Hound

< > 8 years old

Female spayed

 

Maggie is a very sweet natured Basset who is estimated to be about 8 years old.  When her owner passed away, Maggie and her best buddy LeRoy found themselves homeless. Maggie is current on her vaccinations, mostly house-trained and well mannered.  She is not food or toy possessive, she  knows several basic commands and is pretty good on a leash.  She enjoys chasing a ball, but prefers to let LeRoy chase it and then takes it out of his mouth.  She loves to lay in the sun and is an expert at using those big, sad Basset eyes to get you to pet her.  Maggie and LeRoy do not have to be adopted as a pair, but they do very well with each other and would like to stay together if possible.   Watching them play is guaranteed to make you smile.   Maggie’s ideal home would have a safe yard to sniff out and a family who loves her.  She would be very happy to have LeRoy share her space.

 

LeRoy

Irish Setter/ Golden Retriever

8 years old

Male neutered

 

LeRoy is a friendly Irish Setter mix who is estimated to be about 8 years old.  When his owner passed away, LeRoy and his favorite girlfriend Maggie found themselves homeless.  LeRoy is current on vaccinations, house-trained and happy to be with people.  He is not food or toy possessive, knows his basic commands (although sit usually turns into laydown, roll over and scratch my belly), but he needs some work on his leash skills.  He loves to chase a ball or rope toy and he enjoys playing tug-of-war with Maggie.  LeRoy’s ideal home would have a fenced yard so he could chase his ball and play with his family.   He would be very happy to have Maggie join him if possible.

 

Zoey

Puggle

7 years old

Female, spayed

 

Zoey the Puggle is a victim of her owner’s allergies.  The home she knew for all but 6 weeks of her life is no longer hers, so she needs to find a new family.  This sweet dog has a mellow temperament and enjoys s nuggling up with her human.  She is friendly, she gets along with humans of all sizes and with other dogs.  She has not been exposed to any cats, so her reaction is unknown.   She knows her basic commands, walks well on a leash and is not protective of her food or toys.  She is current on her vaccinations and micro-chipped.  Zoey is house-trained and was in a crate when she was younger, but has had free roam of the house for several years and has not been destructive.  Her ideal home would have a safe yard to explore and an active family willing to spend time with her and show her that she is loved.

 

Jaxon

Dalmation/ Manchester

9 years old

Male, neutered

 

Pleased just to feel your touch, I’m Jaxon.  I’m part Manchester terrier but I look exactly like a 62 pound Dalmatian.

Jaxon’s owner recently passed away, so this friendly boy is sadly in need of a new home.  He is good with the 2 small dogs he currently lives with, but he doesn’t like larger dogs and has never been around a cat.  Jaxon is a very sweet, loving dog who will bury his face in your lap to be petted.  Jaxon knows most of his basic commands and instead of saying laydown, he responds to “crash”.  He is current on his vaccinations and not protective of his food, but he isn’t willing to share all of his toys.  People food doesn’t agree with him and he can be a “counter surfer”.  Jaxon would be better with older children, he doesn’t try to jump fences and he walks well on a leash using a prong collar.  He is house-trained and crate trained.  Jaxon needs a home where he will feel loved, but also understands that he is not in charge. His ideal home would have a fenced yard to play in, a family who will give him the exercise he needs and also make him feel safe by building a relationship where he understands his place as part of the family.
