Homer and his bonded mate Bella were recently surrendered to LWDR as their owners could no longer care for them. Homer and Bella have been together their whole lives. Homer is 11 and weighs about 22 lbs. He is blind and about 75% deaf. But Homer does great! He likes to go for a walk, loves treats, and loves his gal Bella. He is potty trained, and will let you know if he needs to go outside. He is crate trained. For his safety Homer will need a home with few steps and has a fenced in yard. The adoption fee for Homer and Bella is $450. They qualify for the Senior to Senior Discount. If you have a soft spot in your heart for special needs dogs, please consider giving your heart to Homer. It will be worth it.

I'm Wendi, a 9 month old sweet girl. I love everything and everyone! I'm pretty good at this potty training thing as long as you let me out every few hours! I am about 40 lbs and have a LOT of puppy energy. I can play "rough" at times because I don't know my size! I would do best in a home without kids under 10 and with a bigger dog to be my buddy! Consistency, exercise, and training will be key to having me in your home.

Lumi is a 12.5lb 3 year old Havanese recently rescued from a commercial breeding facility. Her adoption fee is $400. She loves running around in the yard, but she's also really good inside the house. She also likes playing with her foster siblings in the yard, and is very patient with the puppy that climbs all over her. She takes a little while to warm up to humans, but she's blossomed with the love shown to her by her foster mom. She now loves pets, especially scratches behind her ears. She had to get groomed, she did great at the groomer, and now she looks like a new happier dog! She's not technically potty trained, but she's learning fast, and she doesn't typically have accidents when her foster mom is home. She is a bit skittish about loud noises and sudden movements, and is now used to being picked up. She has mastered climbing stairs, and will start working on walking down them soon. She would do best in a home without very young children, as she is skittish with sudden movements and noises. She would love a friendly dog companion as she loves playing with her foster brother. Lumi is spayed, caught up on her vaccinations, had her teeth cleaned, and is microchipped.

Loveable Libby is a 13 week old mini poodle mix. She was born in rescue and has been a little pistol from the get go. Libby has lots of personality and not afraid to wrestle, and play, with her siblings, or her humans. Libby does have microphthalmia which can affect her vision. The vet believes her condition is on the mild side and that her vision appears to be completely functional. Libby may do best with another young, small, dog in her home and a fenced yard will be required. Libby will have her age appropriate vaccines, be spayed, and microchipped at the time of adoption. Her adoption fee is $550.

Roman is a very sweet, little, 13 week old mini poodle mix. He is very snuggly, loves to be held and an all around happy little puppy. Roman was born in rescue and can be a little bit of a mama's boy. Roman does have microphthalmia which can affect his vision. The vet believes his condition is mild and that his vision appears to be completely functional. Along with the vision concerns, comes concerns with his hearing. We did have his hearing rechecked at his most recent visit on Sept. 11th and it does appear that this little guy is hearing impaired. Roman does not let this slow him down. Roman would do best in a home with another young, small, dog to learn from and a fenced yard is a must. Due to his special needs, he will need a home that does not have really young children or bigger dogs. Roman will have his age appropriate vaccines, be neutered, and microchipped at the time of his adoption. His adoption fee is $550.

11/26/23 update: Montgomery has been with his foster family now for a little less than a month. It is amazing how far a dog can come with a lot of love! He is learning to trust humans and lean on them for comfort. However, his main source of comfort still comes from his dog companion. For this reason, we believe that Montgomery must be adopted by a family with another friendly dog already in the home. Montgomery would also be most comfortable and safest with a family who has a fenced yard. When the house is quiet, Montgomery is comfortable snuggling with his family and dog friend. If there are visitors or lots of noises, he retreats to his bed. He has started tossing a toy around and he enjoyed playing with the other small dogs at a recent meet and greet with the rescue. Meet Montgomery, the most adorable 15lb friend you could ever have! Montgomery was recently retired from 6 years at a commercial breeding facility and is ready to live out the rest of his years with lots of love and cuddles. You will see two different hairdos in his photos; his coat needed some work so we got him groomed and he now handsomely awaits his future family! His coat will need regular grooming which can cost anywhere from $50-100 every couple of months to avoid matting. Montgomery has been neutered, is up to date on his shots, had dental work, and has a clean bill of health from the vet! Because of the condition of his teeth, we would expect him to need regular dental cleanings which can be costly.He is a little shy but is settling in nicely with his foster family and they are learning more about his charming personality every day. He is learning how to just be a dog by following his foster dog sibling around and copying his actions. He enjoys running around and exploring his new back yard. Montgomery is very sweet and likes to be held but will also curl up in his dog bed. He doesn't mind staying in a crate with his dog friend while his foster mom runs an errand during the day. He is working on his potty training so he will need some patience there, but his foster family thinks he's really smart and has already caught on quickly! He would love to be adopted by a family who will shower him with affection and he would especially enjoy a friendly canine companion. His adoption fee is $300. Are you the perfect family for this little man?

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.

Gigi is a 1 1/2 year old Pom mix and weighs 13.5 lbs. She is Skittish. She came from a breeding facility. Gigi will require a fenced yard, preferably a privacy fence so that she is unable to climb over the fence. Gigi loves toys and playing with the two other dogs in her foster home. She would need another high energy dog in the home to play with and to show her the ropes. She will do best in a home with no young children. Gigi will need someone that is willing to put in the time and have patience to continue working with her on trusting people. She will also need to work on leash training and potty training. Her adoption fee is $450. Gigi has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and has had a dental cleaning.

Tod is a very sweet, but very shy, 9 week old Pomsky. He has a playful personality with the other dogs in his foster home. Tod is very small in size, approximately 2 pounds, and therefore, would do well in a home without very young children and/or bigger dogs. Tod will be neutered, current on his age appropriate vaccines, and microchipped at the time of his adoption. His adoption fee is $550.

Budderific (Buddy) is a sweet 11 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.

UPDATE 11/14/23: Champ was adopted, but before he got in the house he jumped out of his new owners arms and ran. Champ was found by a good Samaritan and taking to the emergency vet. He survived being hit by a car and his injuries. Champ had many injuries: head trauma, multiple lacerations (one severe), and 4 broken ribs. He will have his staples removed this week. He is finishing his medications this week too. His liver values will need to be monitored for the coming months. His ribs will also just need time to heal and understanding of slight limitations. Champ gets very attached to his person/people and will need some time to adjust to a new home. He requires a fenced in yard. UPDATE: 9/28: Champ is doing much better with not marking now that he is fixed. He loves to go outside, but loves to snuggle with his human just as much. Champ is a 6 year old Shih tzu. He weighs 15.5 pounds. His adoption fee is $350. Champ is extremely friendly and such a happy boy. He doesn't really let anything bother him. He is fine with other dogs and just let's things roll of his back. He doesn't like his belly band being put on, but likes to mark in the house. This should improve with his neuter. He would also prefer a fenced yard because he loves to roam. Champ can do stairs and get up on the furniture too. He is just so sweet! Someone will really win with Champ ❤️

Clover is a very sweet little girl who was retired from a commercial breeding facility after years of having puppies. She is a quiet girl, very loveable and comical. She weighs around 14 lbs. She follows me from room to room and is very curious and friendly. She has learned to walk on a leash and has done well with potty training, She is crate trained, and sleeps quietly in her kennel all night. She gets along well with other dogs. Soon after Clover arrived in rescue we learned that she had heart issues. We took her to Iowa State Vet School and learned that she needed a pacemaker. She had the pacemaker put in on June 9th. She will need to take medication for her heart for the rest of her life. The monthly cost for her medication is $60. Clover's new family will need to commit to visits at Iowa State Vet School every six months to have her pacemaker checked. Those visits will cost between $400 and $1,000 each. The ideal home for her will be one with a fenced in yard and another dog with a similar energy level. Clover is a very brave courageous dog. She has been thru alot in the last 6 months, and she took it all in stride. She was patient with the heart monitors, and the trips to ISU, and all the doctor visits. She is easy to have around and it is a joy to be in her company. She is up to date on all her shots. Her adoption fee is $250 and she qualifies for the senior discount.

UPDATE 11/14/23: Nastia has been battling a "sore" on the bottom of her foot for a while. We tried many treatments, but it was eventually determined that it was abnormal and needed to be removed. She had the surgery and they were able to remove it all with clear margins. The report came back as cancer, but the clean margins are curative for this time. It should not spread, but there is a chance another localized growth could develop in the future. She just needs some extra eyes to keep a watch :) Still has taken it all in stride and is doing great. UPDATE 10/6/2023: Nastia lost her bonded pair mate, Sienna yesterday. She would prefer a home with another dog since she gets so attached. She will still need a fence as well. Nastia is showing some signs of anxiety and has a vet appointment on Monday to see what we can do for her. Update 5/24/23: Nastia had her 2 year vet appointment this week! She got a clean bill of health. We are trying a new mousse for her skin dermatitis. She is still a nervous girl that gets anxious with storms or in New situations. She still loves her pal Sienna and it is such a cool bond they have. Update 9/7/22: Nastia and Sienna have been together for their entire foster days (almost 16 months now). These two girls are NEVER apart. At this point it would not be fair to seperate them at adoption since they are clearly better off together. They are a bonded pair so they can live out their lives together! UPDATE 12/14/21: Nastia is still a quirky girl. She has absolutely no interest in potty training to her foster mom's frustration. She also has a GI issue that the vets are unsure of. We tried anti acid medication to help with the spontaneous vomiting, but it has not made a difference. Still not sure were those issues stem from. She is so sweet though and is best friends with Sienna. It is pretty cool to watch how protective Nastia is over her. Everyone deserves a friend like Nastia ♡ 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!
