Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue is an all-volunteer-based Rescue. We have no shelter, so all the dogs in our rescue live in the homes of our fosters until they are adopted. The number of dogs we can rescue is only limited by the number of fosters we have available. Would you be willing to open your heart and home to a dog who needs your help? It takes some time and commitment, but it can be a very rewarding experience to know you helped to save a life. All veterinary and grooming expenses are covered by Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue. If you are interested and would like to learn more, please contact us at info@nebraskanokill.org. Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue needs more fosters, so please add fostering to your sooner, rather than later, bucket list. Thank you!

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

    • American Pit Bull Terrier Dog For Adoption in Lincoln, NE

      Shady

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Lincoln, NE
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Shady is a 3-4 yr. old Pit Bull who was living in an outside pen that had no gate. Food and water were supplied from the outside and clean up was non-existent. We don’t know how long she had been in this enclosure without regular contact from her owner, but she is ready for a new life now. Shady weighs just under 50 lbs. and is current on her vaccinations and microchipped. We were happy that she also tested negative for heartworms and is now on a preventive. She is good with cats, she seems to like other dogs and prefers women to men. She will warm up to men when given a little time and is somewhat fearful of larger men who she may cower around. Older children, in the 8-10 yr. range are okay, but we don’t think a household with younger children would be good fit. Shady loves to cuddle and appreciates attention. She does know some of her basic commands, walks well on a leash and is house-trained. She is not trained to a crate and is terrified of being locked in one. Shady has not been destructive when loose in the house and doesn’t appear to have any separation anxiety. She is not protective of toys or food to humans, but does not want other dogs near her food. Shady would love to have a home where she has a safe fenced yard to play in and a home where she will be a member of the family. She is a sweet dog who would love nothing more than to cuddle up and spend time with the people who love her. If you are interested in meeting this sweet girl, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org Suggested adoption donation is $250.00

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lincoln, NE
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Rico had a very rough start to his young life. He was put in an attic and left alone for days at a time. He was extremely thin and had sores on his body from living in his own waste. When his situation was known, his owner was convinced to give him up, but then his new owner lost his home and was not able to find a place he could take Rico. In spite of all of this, Rico is a very friendly Pit Bull who enjoys playing fetch in the yard and spending time with people. He tolerates most other dogs, but will do best as an only dog. He knows his basic commands and walks well on a leash. He has been trained by Good Decisions Dog Training and you can watch his training videos on their Facebook page and ours. He was given structure and boundaries during his training and this lifestyle needs to continue is his new home to maintain his good behavior. Rico weighs about 60 lbs. and his DOB is Aug. 19, 2015. He is neutered, microchipped and updated on all of his vaccinations. He is also on a heartworm preventive. This boy loves to be around people and will snuggle up for petting when given the opportunity. He is learning household etiquette; what is and is not allowed and also that his “bathroom” is outside. He has made good progress in all areas. Rico is not food or toy aggressive and has been good around older children. His ideal home would have a safe fenced yard and active owners who will continue his training and make him part of the family. If you are interested in meeting Rico, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org. Suggested adoption donation: $250.00

      Breed: Boglen Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lincoln, NE
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). This playful Boston Terrier/ Beagle mix named Zeus needs to find a new home because his owner is going in the military. Zeus has been friendly with people of all sizes, but doesn’t care for other dogs. He would do best in a home as an only dog, but he has learned to ignore other dogs when he goes for walks. He has been through training with Good Decisions Dog Training to improve his behavior with other dogs so he has become more accepting of them. Zeus knows "Sit, Stay, Down, Place and Walk" and also to wait to be released at doorways before going through them. He has played with both a large and medium sized dog and gotten along well, but he can not be trusted with all dogs yet. He met a cat and was curious, but not aggressive towards it, but this cat did not run. Zeus would likely chase if it ran. Zeus is not protective of his food or toys to people and he knows his basic commands. He is house-trained and crate trained and does well on a leash. He is capable of jumping a 6 ft. fence, but he respects an e-collar and will learn quickly to stay away from the fence. Zeus is a happy dog who will cuddle and sit next to you when inside and he enjoys chasing a ball when outside. He is current on his vaccinations, microchipped and weighs in at 32 lbs. Zeus would like to go to a home with owners who will maintain the structure and boundaries that he has been taught, provide him a safe yard to play in and love him for his sweet and playful personality.If you are interested in Zeus, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lincoln, NE
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Look up the word “awesome” and you’ll probably find Levi’s picture there. That’s the first word his foster used to describe him… then came funny, smart and a great cuddler. This friendly boy came from a shelter in a BSL town where his time was up. Levi is only a year old and because he may have some Pit Bull in him, he was about to lose his life! Levi is friendly to all people and gets along great with other dogs. He hasn’t met a cat on our watch yet, but will be cat tested if needed. He is young, weighs about 35 lbs., and has lots of energy, so he is looking for a home with a fenced yard and someone to play with. Levi is a fast learner and he knows a few of his basic commands and is working on learning more, including improving his leash skills. Levi enjoys his training sessions and wants to please his person, so we expect him to be a wonderful family pet. He is house-trained and will go to the door when he needs to go out. He is very comfortable in his crate and likes to take his naps there. Levi is not toy or food aggressive and he loves to play with other dogs. He can play a little rough, so we suggest dogs his size or larger who don’t mind his bunny hopping around them. When in the house, Levi likes to keep an eye on his foster to make sure he isn’t missing out on anything. He enjoys sitting by her side and snuggling up for some petting when ever he can, but he isn’t overly pushy about it. If you are looking for an awesome dog and are willing to continue his training, Levi could be the one for you. If you are interested in meeting this handsome boy, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org. Suggested adoption donation: $250.00

      Breed: Chow Chow-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lincoln, NE
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Chow Chow / Mixed (short coat). You don’t know Jack, but you could! Jack is an almost 6-year old, 53 pound German Shepherd/ Chow mix who is looking for his forever home. His family was moving to a place without a fence and had a change in jobs, so they felt they were no longer a good home for him. Jack enjoys the company of people once he’s had a chance to sniff and meet them and he is okay with other dogs, but not cats. He knows his basic commands and is house-trained, but not crate trained. He has not been destructive in the home when left loose. He pulls some when he starts out on his leash, but walks well once the initial excitement has passed. Jack will be protective of his family and home and will bark at strangers, but he backs off and quiets down when told to. He enjoys sitting near his people and likes to be petted. He is not protective of his regular kibble or toys, but may guard a rawhide. Jack is current on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. He is an inside dog who appreciates a nice soft bed to lay on. Jack wants a home with a fenced yard and a family who will include him in their daily activities. He would prefer to be an only dog and would do best in a home without young children. This handsome boy has a lot of love to give to a family who will love him back. If you are interested in meeting Jack, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org Suggested adoption donation: $250.00

    • Lhasa Apso Dog For Adoption in Lincoln, NE

      Squeakers

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Lhasa Apso
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lincoln, NE
      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso (medium coat). Squeakers almost didn’t make it. This Lhasa Apso was being starved and weighed only 8 lbs. when he was turned in to a shelter. His hair was matted and he was so weak, he wasn’t even able to walk for 3 days while the shelter tried to get him the nourishment he so badly needed. After several weeks of regular meals and medical care, he was healthy enough to be neutered. Squeakers is now current on all of his vaccinations and back to being a healthier weight of about 16 lbs. (18 lbs. would be ideal weight), but he is protective of his food. He will take treats nicely, but guards his food dish, so he either needs to be left alone while eating or we will provide training to change the behavior in his new home. Squeakers is also house trained and very affectionate to those he trusts. He is cautious of strangers who approach him quickly, but usually goes to them if they ignore him. His estimated birth date is 5/2/2009. He loves to sit on your lap for petting or just to take a nap while you lounge and watch TV. Squeakers enjoys walks and does okay with other dogs his size, but would do best as an only dog in a home without children. With cats, sometimes he ignores them and sometimes he barks at them, so we wouldn't recommend he be left alone in a home with a cat. He does not like getting bathed, so professional grooming is recommended with a warning that he may nip. Squeakers has had a rough few years and now, as a senior, he is ready for a home life that will show him the love and attention he deserves with an owner who provides structure and leadership. If you are looking for a loyal companion who desperately needs a good home and someone to love him, then Squeakers could be the one for you. If you would like to meet Squeakers, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org. Suggested adoption donation: $150.00
