Nico - Lincoln, NE
This adorable boy is Nico!
Nico is a four year old male chiweenie who was originally adopted out from Revolution Rescue in July 2016. He was returned to us in December 2017 after he became paralyzed and was diagnosed with Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD).
Nico weighs 18 pounds and is a happy little guy who is loving life and isn’t phased by the fact he can’t walk. He is currently receiving chiropractic treatments, hydrotherapy, and taking a couple herbal supplements for his IVDD. He loves going for car rides and taking walks in the neighborhood in a set of wheels.
He prefers not to use the wheels at home as he can get around very well without them. Nico has a few exercises he must do to help him gain strength in his rear legs…it’s working as he can now stand and has taken a few steps! He has lost his bladder and bowel control, so his foster mom expresses his bladder a few times a day. Don’t let this scare you as it’s very easy to learn and Nico doesn’t mind it at all.
He does wear a belly band when he’s scooting around the house to help with accidents. Nico gets along with most dogs and cats but will chase a cat if they run as he thinks they are playing. He enjoys playing with other dogs and is constantly trying to get his foster fur siblings to play with him. He loves to be with his foster mom, shower her with kisses and follow her everywhere.
Nico is looking for a patient, loving family that will continue with his treatment plan and love him regardless if he’s able to walk again or potty on his own. Nico is current on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Nico and believe you are a good fit, please complete an application at .

Leia - Lincoln, NE
This beauty is Leia! She is a 10 yr old Chihuahua and weighs 14 lbs.
Leia is a loving little Chi who spent the first 8 years of her life in a puppy mill. She is enjoying freedom and loves to nap in dog beds and shower her foster mom with kisses.
Leia is looking for a caring and compassionate home that will help build her confidence and understand she is a bit shy when meeting new people. She enjoys other low energy dogs her size and gets along well with the cats in her foster home.
Leia is housebroken, has learned to walk on a leash and requires a home with a fenced yard. Since she often takes the lead from other dogs' behavior, she would do best in a home with another dog. Leia does have a heart murmur which she takes an inexpensive medication for once a day.
Leia is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. Suggested adoption fee for Leia is $225.00. If you are interested in meeting her complete an application from our website at and we will be in touch!
