Ulysses is a mellow 7 year old Bichon Frise that was recently released from a commercial breeding facility. He is gradually settling into his foster home, but it is taking time. He doesn't hide. He has his favorite bed in the kitchen and he hangs out watching everything. He has found his voice a couple of times to let his foster family know that he wants attention. He doesn't like to be picked up, but when he is picked up he will lounge or lay on a lap without moving. Ulysses doesn't know how to go up and down steps yet. He will need to continue working on his potty training and leash training. Ulysses is looking for a fur ever family with the patience and time to continue to help him learn how to be a pet. Ulysses weighs about 20 pounds. He has a hernia that will be repaired with his neuter. He will probably lose the few teeth he has left with his dental. He also has a "galloping" heart rhythm. Ulysses adoption fee is 300.00 and he will be ready for adoption early in July after his neuter and dental.

Rosie is a sweet Chihuahua senior that loves being a lap dog. Her hobbies are sleeping, eating and hollering at her foster mom to pick her up and put her on the couch. She is a hoot! She has this deep voice that doesn't look like it should come from a little dog. Rosie came from a full shelter in Texas. She is getting along with her foster siblings. She lets then know what her boundaries are. She doesn't like them to get too close to her food bowl. Rosie has packed on the extra Covid weight just like her foster mom so they will be working on getting out there and doing some exercises to slim down a bit. Rosie has been spayed, microchipped and is up to date on shots. She has a vet appointment on June 18 to check out a big lump on her side and will have a dental cleaning done before she can be adopted. The adoption fee for Rosie is $250

Houston is a happy, loveable, and very active, 10 week old puppy. He is often giving kisses and looking for a good belly rub. He knows how to go up and down the stairs, jump up and climb. He is an escape artist. Being a typical puppy, he loves toys and may be looking for something to chew on. He is not potty trained, but is doing well. He will sleep in a crate and may even go in there for some rest, if the door is left open. Houston is used to always having his mom or fur friend close by, he will need another dog in the home. Due to his quickness, and energy, he will need a fully fenced yard. Houston will be neutered, microchipped, and current on his age appropriate vaccinations at the time of adoption. His adoption fee is $500.

Toby is a 7 year-old, 13 pound, Chiweenie male, nuetered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. He may be small in size, but he makes up for it in attitude and his stature. Toby wants to be the center of attention, will push your hand with his nose to maneuver you into scratching his back or ears or just giving him love. He loves other dogs that are playful and waant to run and play, but not all males are his cup of tea. He loves his bed, will sleep in it every chance he gets. Toby is a champion snorer and can be as loud as a human at times. Toby loves to run around the backyard but gets nervous when he hears sudden noises he is unfamiliar with. Toby would do best with children 10 years of age or older. He would be ideal for a single person or couple who can spend time with him at home. Toby is housebroken and quickly learned how to use the doggy door of his foster mom. Toby can be trusted to be loose in the house while foster mom is gone, but she closes all bedroom and bathroom doors to limit his access to the living room and kitchen. Toby is slowly learning how to enjoy being a dog and easing into a happy dog life. I have learned that it's best if he comes to you for attention. He really truly wants to be loved just doesn't understand how! He wags his tail and gets super excited when I come home even if I'm only gone for a few minutes. This little guy deserves a loving home and someone who is patient and kind.

Update 6/16/21. Katie has been spayed and had her dental and is now ready for her new forever family! This little lady weighs 10.8 pounds and is the sweetest girl that loves to give kisses. She is still working on pottty training but making progress. She is treat motivated and very smart. She gets along with all dogs but would be just as happy as on only dog. She likes to be near her foster mom and has been sleeping in a kennel at night next to her foster's bed. Katie is a 5-6 year old Jack Russell Terrier girl with beautiful markings. She was kept in a horse barn her entire life by a backyard breeder. The signs of neglect are apparent both in the fly bitten ears and her fear of loud noises and sudden movements. Since Katie has been in foster care she has flourished. She loves cuddles and laying on the couch. Katie sticks close by her foster mom. She likes to share the recliner. Sadie is doing really well with leash training. Katie will need time, patience, love and reassurance, but the payoff will be so worth it! She is a great little girl.

Molly is a sweet and gorgeous 8 year old Lhasa Apso female who is about 10 pounds. She LOVES to be around her people, kids, and the other dogs in her foster home. She wags her tail when she hears their voices and will follow their sounds around the house. Molly is happiest when she is laying on your lap and snuggling for a nap. She seems to be an old soul with the sweetest heart! Molly does have special needs and will require a very specific family to live out her best days with. Molly is fully blind as she had both of her eyes removed in October of 2020 due to an infection. Molly takes her time walking around and uses the side of her face to feel her surroundings. She is unable to go down stairs due to her lack of vision, and cannot be left on furniture unsupervised. She does not stray too far away from her humans or the resident dogs in the house. She will do great either on a leash or in a fenced yard. She needs a home with very minimal, to no stairs to allow her the greatest ability to freely roam her new home. She knows her name well and will respond when she is called. This precious girl also seems to have skin allergies. She is on a special food to help control her allergies, and also has a daily prescription. The food is about $45 for a 8 lb. bag. Her foster family uses a special shampoo and skin spray to help control the itching. We will know more about the further needs to control her skin allergies when she visits the vet later this week. Molly does not like being in a kennel or away from her family. She will bark until she is out of the kennel and close to her humans. She will want a family who will allow her to sleep in the same room with them. She does well in the car, so she would love to go on rides with her family if that means they won't leave her home by herself. She is not house broken and has had accidents in her foster home. She is getting more consistent with going potty outside, but needs frequent bathroom breaks. She will need a family who is willing take the time necessary to continue being persistent and consistent with her frequent trips outside. Molly's is looking for a home with no stairs, the freedom to roam as she wishes, no kennel, older children, fellow gentle fur siblings, and parent(s) who can stay at home with her the majority of the day. Her adoption fee is $250.

This little sweetie is Ava! She is a 7 year old Maltipoo who came to rescue after completing her stint as a "working girl"! She's very busy and inquisitive checking out every corner of the house. She's nervous about being picked up yet but so sweet when we snuggle on the couch. Loves laying in your lap and just chillin! Ava is getting along just fine with the other dogs in the house. She's got things to learn about being a family member but she'll be great when she figures out what you are asking of her. She's working on potty training but needs more time to get that figured out. Another dog in the house would be nice so she can learn from them. I do think a fence will be required as she's skittish yet and does not know how to walk on a leash. She's just been here a few days so we're still getting to know each other. Please check back for updates! If you have the desire and patience to help this little girl learn what love is all about please consider applying to adopt her.

Budderific (Buddy) is a sweet 8 year old male Poo-chon who was surrendered to a local shelter through no fault of his own. The local shelter reached out to LWDR because Buddy couldn’t stay in the shelter because of his Addison’s disease. Buddy has not had accident in his foster home and appears to be potty trained. He is very food motivated and loves his treats. Buddy is super laid back and he loves to cuddle. He will need another fur sibling in his new home to play with. Buddy loves to wrestle and play with the resident dogs in his foster home. He will require a fenced yard because he loves to run and play off leash. He is very fast. He also tries to “door dart”. Buddy’s adoption fee is 250.00 He is already neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. Buddy didn’t get his daily meds for his Addison’s for a period of time so we are working with our vet team to gradually get him back on the correct dose where he needs to be. After his meds are at the right level he will need a dental. Dogs with Addison’s require an injection every 28 days and a daily oral medicine. The bottle of medicine for his shots is 200.00 and will last for several months. Buddy will also need blood checks every 14 days for awhile to ensure that he is receiving the correct dosages of his meds. Buddy’s new family will need to be prepared to continue his medical treatment and medicines for the rest of his life. Dogs with Addison’s can live a long and happy life. Update: April 2 - Buddy is doing well with his current medicine dosage and schedule. He loves to go on car rides and to hang out with his family. Buddy wears a belly band since he likes to mark in his foster home. He is a happy guy that would love to find his fur ever home. Update March 2021: Buddy lost a little weight when he went in for his last shot. We are adding an acid reflux medicine to see if that will help. We are an all-volunteer rescue located in Omaha, Nebraska. All dogs are cared for in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted. We do not have a facility. LWDR does not ship or transport dogs. Approved out of area adoptions are considered. Adopters must be willing to travel to the Omaha area to complete adoption and take their new family member home as soon as their dog is medically and behaviorally cleared for adoption.

Karmie is a 2-5 year old poodle mix that recently joined the rescue. She was surrendered to a local shelter in April and she was super stressed so the shelter contacted the rescue. She is a large girl at over 15 pounds. The vets guess is that she could be a mini doodle or possibly a cockapoo. Karmie used to live in an adult only apartment as an only dog. She appears to be potty trained if she is let out at regular intervals. Karmie loves to go on car rides! Karmie is still trying to decompress and settle in to her foster home. She has separation anxiety. She is not a fan of people she doesn't know. Karmie seems to prefer females over males. It takes her some time to trust people she doesn't know. She will give a warning growl or air snap if she doesn't want to be touched. Her anxiety has gotten better over time in her foster home but it is still there. Karmie's anxiety when she goes to the vet or groomer is off the charts. When she went to the vet for the first time with the rescue she needed to be muzzled. Requirements for adoption: - NO children under 14 ( adult only home) - as an only dog or with a single calm fur friend that is not a puppy - a fur ever home where she will only be left alone for short periods of time - a patient home. It took Karmie 4-5 days to settle in to her foster home. Karmie's adoption fee is 300.00 and she will be available for adoption after her spay and dental.

Reba is an adorable 6-7 your old ( best guess) toy poodle that was recently released from a commercial breeding facility. She is the absolute best snuggle bug ever!! Reba loves to be held and she follows her foster family everywhere!! Reba is working on her potty training. She is not a huge fan of grass yet - but she is using the washable potty pads most of the time. Reba was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the Kansas State small animal clinic. We caught it in the early stages and she should have a normal life span with good veterinary care. Her adoptive family should be prepared to take Reba to get an echocardiogram every 6-12 months. When Reba gets excited or over does it she sometimes has trouble catching her breathe. Reba's adoption fee is 300.00. She will be ready for her new home after her spay and dental. Reba has quite a few yucky teeth that may have to be pulled. She is current on all of her vaccinations and she is microchipped.

UPDATE 3/10/21: Ezekiel has been reassessed for his issues. He will need to stay on 2 eye drops for the rest of his life. One is $31 and will last about a month. The other is $21.50 and will last for 2 to 3 months. These are life long meds to help with his dry eye. Both of his knees have luxating patella. It is painful for him, so he is getting pain meds everyday too for a happier life. Being on pain meds does require routine blood tests to make sure there is no damage to his organs. We understand this adds a cost to this cutie, but these are needed for his best life. He still is not great around people, but he runs and plays with the other dogs and has found toys as well. It is a riot to watch him play and enjoy life! Ezekiel is a 7 year old shih tzu that weighs 9.6 pounds. He is underweight currently. His adoption fee is $300. Ezekiel has never lived life outside of a kennel and needs a patient home that will give him time to learn love. He is very sweet, but is not trusting of people. He LOVES the other dogs and he hops around and his tail wags when he sees them. I would say a household with older children only just because he is so skittish with people. A fenced yard or a exercise pen or way to contain him outside is a must! Ezekiel has a bad luxating patella on his left knee. It will be something he has to live with, but it is noticeable. He also has severe dry eye. He will.be on a couple medications for the rest of his life. This is a cost that a new owner needs to be aware of. Ezekiel was named by another lwdr volunteer and she picked it because it means "God strengthens. " it is perfect for this little man as he learns about life and love in a home. He will probably never me a lap dog either. He will come around in his own time ♡

UPDATE 6/14: Nastia spent many days last week at the vet being treated for pancreatitis. She fought hard to win, but still is working on feeling 100%. She is learning to love the yard and it is so cute to watch her her go out and come in on her own. She is always curled up with foster sister Sienna. Another dog will be huge for her confidence! Nastia is a 8 year old silky terrier. She is a big girl at about 14 pounds. She has been saved from her life in a kennel. She is a very sweet girl. Her tail is usually wagging and she does allow pets. She still isn't totally sure what is happening and doesn't stick around long, but is ok to be picked up and loved on for a bit. Nastia is learning about potty training as well. She loves to go outside and follow the others dogs to see what life is all about. She will do best with a fenced yard because she does not understand a leash and still gets spooked. Nastia seems to get along with the other dogs and curls up with foster sister Sienna often. She might do best in a household without young kids, because that might be too much for her. Nastia is going to be an amazing family member. Her adoption fee is $250!

Sherman is a very happy 6 year old dog! He is super friendly and his tail wags a mile a minute when meeting new friends! Sherman has a very laid back disposition and likes kids and other dogs. Sherman is kennel trained and working on his leash skills. Sherman has an adorable prance and he is quite fun to watch prance around the yard channeling his inner royal steed. Sherman is not an overly needy dog. He likes to be around his people and happily accepts attention, but is happy to lay nearby and doesn't feel the need to constantly be under the feet of his favorite person. He is currently being treated for dry eye which is easily managable with relatively inexpensive eye drops (around $30 per month). He may or may not continue to need eye drops, which he tolerates well. Sherman has been doing a fantastic job at potty training and has not had any accidents in his foster home. He will need his new family to continue to be consistent in letting him out frequently, but he has not displayed any marking behaviors. Sherman would make a great addition to any family.

UPDATE 6/16: Sienna had another seizure last night. At this point it is probable that she has epilepsy and will be taking daily medication. This medication is roughly $30 to $60 a month. UPDATE 6/14: Sienna is a goofy girl. She barks A LOT. If she heard a noise or sees her reflection in the door she has to make sure to bark. She is not a quiet girl. She is getting a little better with touch, but does not want to be held or picked up. She enjoys being outside the most where she can run the fence and bark with the neighbor dogs :) Sienna is a 7ish year old chocolate yorkie. She weighs about 10 pounds. She is free after spending her life in a kennel. She is skittish and fearful of people. She LOVES other dogs (puppies are a bit much for her) and another dog will be really good for her. She will also require a fenced yard because of being scared and not wanting to be touched by people. She LOVES to be outside and always tries to get out the door as soon as it is open. Sienna was spayed and have a dental this week. She has a grade 1 heart murmur, that just requires monitoring at this time. She did have a seizure her 2nd night in foster care. The vets are hopefully that it was a single incident, but something to note with her. She will need a quiet home without active kids. Sienna is a BEAUTIFUL girl that is looking forward to lots of love for the rest of her life!
