Did you know that Bichon's are about the best dogs around for dog allergy sufferers? If you have always wanted a non-shedding dog, here is your chance! Darrowby is a young Bichon Frise boy. We believe he is about 3 years old. He is very unsure of humans, so he probably didn't get much socialization in his previous life at a commercial breeding facility. Darrowby loves other dogs and gets along great with them. He is getting braver each day and his foster mom is teaching him that humans can be good. He will sit in her lap and be petted, he is just unsure about being caught and picked up. Darrowby does not mind the resident cat. He is working on his house manners, and doing well with potty training. He sleeps in a kennel and keeps it clean. Darrowby will be such a good pet to someone that is willing to put in the time and effort to teach him that life as a pet is a very good thing. Darrowby is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. The adoption fee for this boy is $350.

She has been very brave in facing her fears and trying new things.

She actually smiles ear to ear when she discovers something new that she likes! Once Lila is comfortable in her surroundings, she is a fun loving, energetic and playful girl. Lila is discoverig that she really likes attention and head scratches from her foster mom and is showing more of her fun and quirky personality every day. Lila has been working on her potty training and leash skills. So far, she is picking up on these skills very well. Lila's ideal forever home would have a fenced yard and another confident dog for her to play with that can help show her how fun it is to be a loved and valued family member. It's going to take Lila a little bit of time and patients to grow into her real self, but it will be so worth the effort for the family she will call her own.

Lord Barkston is a distinguished Chihuahua boy who likes to prance around like he is at a ball. Barkston is a bit shy, but follows his foster momma everywhere and likes to sneak in kisses on her fingers. He gets along with other dogs and cat in the home. He is a complete gentlemen. Have you ever got a bad haircut that caused you so much embarrassment that you didn't want to leave the house. Well poor Lord Barkston was shaved down to nothing. He is actually a long-haired Chihuahua and when his hair grows back he will be stunning. For now, his foster momma says he looks like a llama. Barkston doesn't care. He is just happy to be in a home where he doesn't have to work (former breeder) and he has soft blankets and beds to lay on. This guy is a gem.

UPDATE 3/24/23: Marnie is contiuning to make progress everyday. She definitely loves her humans. Marnie is at a point where she is comfortable with her foster mom picking her up and holding her. Marnie likes to give lots of love and kisses. She truly wants to be a companion and have a family of her own to love on her and to share her love in return. She enjoys being outside and likes to run in the yard, as well as go on walks arounf the neighborhood. She can still be shy when it comes to new people. Marnie would probably do best in a home where she is the only dog. Meet little Miss Marnie, a 4 year Chiuahua who has made the long trip from Texas in hope of finding a family of her very own. This sweet girl has had a rough start in life, but is making strides to overcome it. Marnie has been making progress in her foster home. She is scared/skiddish of new people, new situations/environments, and sudden movements. However, Marnie is always happy to see her foster family and is often wagging her tail in excitement. Marnie has also been known to jump up into foster mom or dad's lap, while they sit down to watch tv. She loves to get her pets in then. The information we received was that she does NOT like to be picked up or held, but we have not tested that theory just yet. Marnie will need a patient family, who is willing to take things at her pace and allow her to come to them. She will also need a home without children, as sudden movements and loud noises seem to be an issue for her. Marnie has been known to run also, so she will need a fully fenced yard to help keep her contained. Marnie does seem to like other dogs, but not all dogs. A buddy for her would definitely need to be the right fit, size, temperment. She is still getting used to the other dogs in her foster home. Deep down, Marnie is the sweetest llittle girl who just wants to be loved. She just needs time to build trust and confidence. Marnie is current on her vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $350.

Update 11/17: Deuce has had a lot happen over the last couple of months. He celebrated his 6th birthday and he has grown to 6 pounds! Deuce has had some major medical issues come up. He was diagnosed with meningitis. They also found during his testing that he has a malformed skull that is flat in the back and pushes on the base of his brain stem. He also has a pocket of fluid on his neck/spinal cord. He has a med he will be on forever because of his neck issue. It is about $60 a month. Because of the meningitis diagnosis he has gone through 2 rounds of chemotherapy. He may need more rounds of chemo if his symptoms return. These run about $600 each round. Deuce came home on 11 medications. He is currently down to 2. We are just starting to try and decrease his dose of his steroids to see how he does. He still had a lot of unknowns. The reason for his meningitis is unknown. There was no infection found. It was diagnosed as auto immune. Through it all this tiny boy was such a fighter. He was not able to stand or eat/drink on his own for days, but it never stopped him from trying. Deuce is such a sweet boy that is under my feet at every second. I cannot sit down without him wanting up and then 5 minutes later when he is too hot he wants back down. He is going to need an extra special furever home. He will also need a home without small kids or large dogs. He cannot get bumped around like other dogs. Update 9/7/22: Deuce weighed in at a scale tipping 4.9 pounds! He is a PEOPLE dog. He wants to always be by me and follows me everywhere. As soon as I sit down he wants to be on my lap. He is pretty funny too. He knows how to navigate the one stair out to the yard, but is not big enough to make it back up the stair to come back in. He really, really tries though :) Deuce will be on allergy medication and joint medication for the remainder of days. They seem to be helping this little guy. If you want a very sweet tiny boy..this is your man! Deuce is a tiny little 5 year old poodle. He is a little leary of people, but wags his tail when you come into a room. His adoption fee is $300. He probably weighs 5 to 6 pounds. Deuce would love a fence and a more quiet life. He is super sweet and deserves to be spoiled. After his vet appointment we did notice some issues. Deuce had to have some eyelashes lasered since they were poking him in the eye. He is currently on eye medication and not sure if that will be long term. He has something wrong with his knee. The vets are not sure if it is from trauma or if he was born that way. He is on pain meds for his knee. He also appears to have some skin issues. He is currently on apoquel to help with his allergy issues. Deuce is such a sweet and loving boy. He just need a patient home. He also lost all his teeth, but his canines. He will do just about anything for some soft food :) he will be all groomed up in a week and will be a whole new dog.

Update: 2/15/23 Bruno is living his best life, on his terms. He still does not like people to pet him or try to pick him up, BUT he is happy to be in someone's company. He will take treats right from his foster's hand and will come around to sleep in their room at night. He is often happy to see his family members, when they return home, as he greets them with a smiling face and a wagging tail. He enjoys the company of other dogs, especially ones that are pretty laid back, like him. A fenced yard is a must for Bruno, since it could be difficult to get him on a leash. Bruno would do best in a home, where the family understands that he will be content just being in someone's company. He will probably not be the snuggle buddy that people look for, but he is a happy guy and is enjoying his life of freedom. And to his foster family, that is perfect!! Update: 4/20/22 Bruno is still skiddish with humans, but seems to really enjoy the other dogs. Having another small dog, is a must for him. When his foster siblings are out by the humans, he comes out too. He has even started coming into his foster parents bedroom to sleep, with the other dogs, at night. Bruno is continuing to make progress in his home Update 12/27/21 this handsome little dude is making some progress. He is still scared around new people and tends to hide. But, Bruno, is becoming more settled in his foster home. He will come up to his family to sniff them and he has started taking some foods from their hands, cheese being one of his favorites. Bruno is such a sweet boy. He just needs a patient family to work with him. Bruno is living life on the outside for the first time. He is a sweet 7-year-old Pom, who weighs about 10 pounds. He is, understandably, skittish and can be scared by fast movements and loud noises. He has only been living in a home for a few days, so it is very new to him. Bruno is not potty trained, so he will need a patient family willing to work with him. He seems to like the other dogs in his foster, but he is still trying to figure out his humans. Due to the fact that he is rather skittish, he would need a fully fenced yard and home that does not have small children. Bruno is neutered, current on his vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300.

Meet Rey! She is a 5-year-old Pomeranian that has a sunny disposition. For the first time in her life, she is living as a pampered pooch and is starting to enjoy it. Rey probably has had limited human interaction so bring your patience as it may take a while for her to trust you, although she is starting to warm up to her foster mom and dad. Rey’s owner is going to need an abundance of persistence because this little lady will need some extra time to be house trained. She will also need some additional support on learning how to walk on a leash and harness. Rey loves the resident dog that she is currently living with. She looks to him for guidance and comfort. She is also okay with cats. An ideal home will have other dogs for her play with, a fenced in backyard to run around in, and a home with older children (middle school aged) as Rey can be skittish when it comes to quick movements and loud noises. If you have teenagers that drive, she would love to have a pup cup from Starbucks delivered to her. Rey will need frequent grooming as all fluffy Pomeranians will. Rey enjoys watching TV and taking naps on soft blankets and warm human beds. She is ready to find a loving and patient forever home. Will it be yours? Adoption fee: $350.00

Budderific (Buddy) is a sweet 10 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 is potty trained but he does "mark" in his foster home. It may be less when he is in his permanent home. 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.
