Say hello to Smudge, a baby pit mix (b. March 2022) who has spent the first few months of life sick with Parvo, a deadly virus that can be easily prevented with a series of vaccinations from the vet. Smudge is a lucky, tough little guy who pulled through with the big WIN and kicked Parvos booty! This boy is the OG cuddle monster and takes his cuddling responsibilities very seriously. He loves other dogs but has not been around cats, tho he has shown no prey drive so he could do well with them. Smudge is about 80% potty trained and his fosters are still working on getting him to that 100% mark. He loves to play and loves a good game of tug-a-war. His favorite toys are squeaky toys and boy does he L O V E treats! So who is ready to give this little fighter his FURever home?! The suggested adoption donation for Smudge is $465. Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization which means that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We are a 100% volunteer rescue committed to giving animals a second chance at life. All donations go toward that mission. Adoption fees are the primary source of funding for the cost of veterinary care for our animals. In 2021 alone, we were able to provide animal Healthcare costing over $306,000 covered mainly through adoption fees. Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once your application is approved, we will put you in touch with the animals foster to see if you and the pet are a good match. If so, we will arrange a meeting for you and the animal. The adoptions for all of our animals will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver. If this pet is not spayed or neutered at the time of adoption due to limited vetting availability, a voucher will be given to the adopter for a free spay/neuter procedure at Val Verde Animal Hospital. Spay/neuters completed elsewhere will be reimbursed $80/dog or $55/cat once proof of alteration has been received by Muddy Paws. Alterations are required for all Muddy Paws adoptions. The adoption contract states alters must be done within ONE month of the adoption date or the adopter will be in breach of the contract. Adopters are required to provide proof of alteration to Muddy Paws Rescue immediately following the procedure. Thank you in advance for your compliance. Please Note: We are a RESCUE, which is different from a shelter. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks during the application approval process. We always select the right applicant for each animal, based on the animals needs. If you and the animal are not a good match, we will help you select another animal, or we will keep your approved application on file for 6 months.
