Buckshot, dachshund

Buckshot is a lovable male dachshund currently residing at Nebraska Dachshund Rescue.

Buckshot loves to socialize — he'll get along great with other dogs. He is already neutered, vaccinated and house-trained.

A note from Buckshot:

I am hard of hearing, so I like to use my eyes to watch and check out what is going on in my life, so I like to be able to see my human and where they are. I am an active guy, but quick movements can scare me sometimes, so if you have kids, they need to be old enough to understand good dog etiquette and not startle me. I also would really need a fenced yard, that’s for my security since I can’t hear for you to call me back.

Pixie, dachshund

Pixie is a sweet female dachshund being kept at Nebraska Dachshund Rescue.

Pixie is a social butterfly, and she loves other dogs. Good news: She is already house-trained, spayed and vaccinated.

Notes from Pixie's caretakers:

This little sweetheart is Pixie, and she is a little ray of sunshine. She is smart, sweet and absorbs and embraces each new experience she encounters, from long walks, drives in the car, and camping trips in the RV. She has enjoyed staying up late roasting marshmallows in Yellowstone to chasing frogs and butterflies in Kansas fields. She has an old soul for such a young lady and most nights she cuddles on the sofa waiting to have her head and belly scratched.

Rupert, beagle and hound mix

Rupert is a charming male beagle and hound mix currently housed at Midwest Wheaten Rescue.

Rupert is neutered and he has all his shots. He's also already house-trained.

From Rupert's current caretaker:

Rupert is easy going, calm and just ready to snuggle on the couch or lie at your feet. He's truly a born companion dog, just completely content to be with his people. Rupert is lower energy, he'd be happy with a daily stroll and he walks well on a leash.

Two Face, pointer mix

Two Face is an adorable male pointer mix currently housed at Great Plains Pointer Rescue.

No other pets please: Two Face is looking for home without other dogs or cats. Great Plains Pointer Rescue recommends Two Face be placed in a home without small children. Two Face is already neutered, house-trained and vaccinated.

A notes from Two Face:

If it was up to me, I'd stay outside chasing birds all day long. I'm used to being the king of this castle, so I'll probably do better in a home with no other dogs, cats or little kids, but I don't know any of that for sure. I don't like having my paws messed with very much, so it would be best to have my nails done by the professionals. I prefer places and people I'm familiar with, so I'll need to be introduced to your friends and new places a few times before I'm comfortable.

Hobo, pointer

Hobo is a charming male pointer dog staying at Great Plains Pointer Rescue.

Hobo is happy to keep company with other dogs. Good news: He is already house-trained, neutered and vaccinated. 

Here's what Hobo's friends at Great Plains Pointer Rescue think of him:

I am partial to tug ropes, Skinz and raw hide toys. I am a very gentle boy with excellent house manners. I do well in my crate and am very content on a dog bed. I will not be a good candidate for anyone with an invisible fencing system, as I have had a bad experience with those types of collars.

Hercules, dachshund and miniature pinscher mix

Hercules is a charming male dachshund and miniature pinscher mix in the care of Wag N Train Terrier Rescue.

Hercules is happy to keep company with other dogs. His vaccinations are already up to date and he is neutered. Hercules has also mastered his house-training etiquette.

Here's what Hercules' friends at Wag N Train Terrier Rescue think of him:

Hercules is one of the sweetest dogs we've met. He absolutely loves people and he has the greatest smile. He does well with other dogs his size, but is intimidated by larger dogs. We recommend that he not be around small children, as he would knock them over in his excitement without meaning to hurt them. Hercules has a lot of energy, and we recommend an active home that will keep Hercules busy.
