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. show less

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.  show less

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. show less

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.   show less

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 ♡ show less

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! show less
