We know that there are Adoption Days held at local businesses where people stop by to look and adopt, but we want 12 Hills Dog Rescue “Adoption Day”, be just a little different, and easier to manage for us. So, March 7th will be our next adoption day, and will be held at 12 Hills Dog Rescue.
We will have this special day from 11:00–4:00 on Saturday, March 7th—here at the rescue. BUT—BY APPOINTMENT ONLY!. So, that means if you are interested in a doggie at our rescue and want to come on Saturday—please call and schedule an appointment with Nola, Chuck or Brenda.
Betty’s puppies were all adopted on Sat. the 20th, so we hope that Louise’s 7 will find homes also that day. AND–we have some other great dogs, that are waiting for just the right families to come and share their love with them.
So, we hope our new idea—“Adoption Day with a Twist!” works the 7th of March and in the weeks ahead.
Champ is Ready!

This is Boy!
Boy, arrived on Tuesday, as a surrender. He is definitely all Great Pyrenees and so handsome. Boy is just a year old and is in need of a good grooming and some vaccinations. We will provide some of the vaccinations here and ask that his new family complete them with the rabies when he is taken to be neutered.
We were told that Boy is great with kids and other dogs. He will need to be in a large fenced in yard, so that he doesn’t roam, like some others in his breed. We don’t think that “Boy” will be at the rescue long, so if interested call and set up and appointment to meet him.
We named her Elsa, because of her pure white coat, with just a few faded tan circles on her back. She is about 5 months old, but you can tell she is a beauty in the making. Elsa came to us from a local animal control, and is a little thin at this time. Another week, of good food and care, and we believe Elsa will be ready to go home with her special family. Elsa appears to be a lab mix, and is under 6 months old. She is sweet, loving and of course just a little shy right now. The pictures show how she looked when she arrived at the rescue. We hope to have more to share soon. If you are interested in Elsa, call the rescue and set up an appointment to meet her.
Elsa is a Beauty!
Talk about a cutie—and one of a kind. That describes Marabelle perfectly. She arrived at 12 Hills Dog Rescue this week from a local animal control. Marabelle appears to be a Bassett/Bulldog. She is very short in stature with beautiful liver coloring and markings, and then there is that American Bulldog face. I don’t think there is another one like her, and her personality matches her beauty. Marabelle is easy going and her smile seems to always be in place. She is looking for just the right family—we are going to be super picky finding just the right family for this “one in a million girl.”
She is a young dog, we are guessing 12 months or younger. We hope to find out more about her in the days ahead.
I have been asking myself that question lately. We have been licensed since 2009, and usually adopt close to 150 dogs each year. We have a large number of dogs here at the rescue, and yet, we have been told numerous times that 12 Hills Dog Rescue is one of the best well-kept secrets in Northeast NE.
Maybe it is because we are a little different than most of the rescues in our area. We aren’t located in a city, operate a large facility, or have a large base of volunteers. 12 Hills is located on our family farm, with 3 of us running the rescue. I am assuming that the day to day care, socializing, and work it takes for each dog, has kept us from having the needed publicity to put our name out there. The New Year has already brought some BIG changes. We recently applied and received our 501c3 for the rescue. We believe that new and exciting things are going to take place because of this new status. Watch for more new and exciting happenings at 12 Hills in the future. We are going to begin our Wish List next week!
Mikey–Jailbird to Sweetheart!
Amos–A great Farm Dog!
Iris has been waiting for so long.
We rescued the sweetest female German Shepherd a couple weeks ago. She had been dumped, and thanks to a couple of kind ladies, she was saved from being hit by a truck. She has the most beautiful eyes, and when she looks at you, those eyes seem to speak volumes. We are assuming she isn’t all German Shepherd, because she has one blue eye and one brown one. She would make a great house dog. Lisa is quiet, and just wants to be close to someone that will love her. We prefer that she remain a house dog, as she seems to have that type of personality.
If you prefer an active dog, then Roy, the male German Shepherd, may be more your type. He is a strong dog, and very handsome. Roy looks like he is all German Shepherd to us. Roy is a young dog, we are guessing around a year. He needs to be neutered, but I think he would be a great walking or jogging partner for someone who makes him part of their family.
