Rescue Me ID: 16-02-09-00646Jacob (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I wish I could take a magic wand and make Jacob more appealing to people but I can't. Jacob has some strikes against him. Let's just get it all out there. He is older, 11 years old now. He is not the cutest fella in the pack. The couple teeth he has left don't do him any good when they stick out like fangs. And...Jacob is very shy and finding that hard to overcome. So is it really 3 strikes, you're out? I hope not. Because there is more about Jacob. He sits at my feet when I am at my desk and just lovingly looks up for a treat. He won't take it from my hand, but he will pick it up if I toss it. He is very gentle with other ... (Read More)dogs and never goes looking for a fight. Jacob is quiet and calm in almost any siutation. He has never once tried to bite anyone. Jacob deserves what every dog deserves....a place to call home and people that will love him. Just the basics... If you are interested in adopting Jacob, please complete the adoption application at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com/adoption.html Thanks! (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Here at the rescue we are 'Puttin' on the Ritz'! This dapper lil' Chihuahua is just over 8 years old. He comes to us from another rescue that was in need of some help. We didn't hesitate'|just one look at this 'million dollar trouper' and he was part of our Fur Fun family. Ritz would probably do best in a home without small children as he is little with thin, delicate legs. And he really just wants to live a quiet life with love, consistency, and a warm lap to snuggle on. He is well socialized with other dogs'|we are not sure about cats. He is shy of new people, but once he knows he can trust you he is happy to let you pick him ... (Read More)up. Having some treats in your pocket helps him like you faster. Ritz is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, has had his teeth cleaned, and is microchipped. For more information about Ritz you can contact lynette@furfunrescue.org or call 319-310-3120. The adoption application can be completed at www.furfunrescue.org and submitted online.

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-08-00671Cora (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Cora is a true lap lover! Give her a lap and a soft blanket and she is all set. There's not much she enjoys more except possibly hotdogs. Cora is so sweet and has this tiny little face that just draws you right in. She pretty much ignores the other dogs. I am thinking she might feel a bit 'above' them, like she's not really a dog at all. lol Cora weighs about 5.8 pounds so she's just a tiny little girl. Cora is a 4 year old chihuahua. If you are interested in adopting Cora, please complete the adoption application at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com/adoption.html Thanks!

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    The testing is done and the results are in - Millie has received treatment and is now ready for a forever home. She does breathe funny - but the experts can find no explanation for it and say it will always just be that way. She will probably stay fairly small (probably not over 35 or 40 pounds). Her foster mom says she did very well with her housebreaking and it won't take much to finish it up. She is great with kids, other dogs and cats. Her foster mom has done a great job taking excellent care of her and she is one very social little girl. She is now 4 months old and so ready to find her permanent home.

    My name is Riley and I am looking for a home to love and care for me for my senior years. I am a Chocolate Lab who will be 9 in April. Don't let my age fool you - I am very active. I do well with kids as long as the aren't infants and cry all the time. I really haven't been around many other dogs so we would have to try it and see if we get along. I will chase stray cats. They are faster than me so not sure what I would do with them if I actually got one. I am very proud of the fact that I am fully housebroken and love to snuggle up on a couch. If you give me a little play and running time I will be the best cuddle partner you could ever ... (Read More)find. I am neutered, current on all of my shots and will be micro-chipped before I leave Patriots. My adoption fee is only $50.00 to cover the costs of my chip and shots. Not a lot for this much lovin!

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, My name is Ozzy and I'm looking for my very own furever home. I am FULL of energy and love to explore and get into stuff. I am still a puppy so I am learning what I can and cannot chew on! I am also learning about this thing called 'housebreaking', meanwhile I have been forced to wear a humiliating contraption called a belly band. I heard this is so I don't pee on everything. As I said earlier I am a puppy, hence I am on the go all the time. I am like a little jumping bean! I do like to play and run around outside when it isn't too cold. I do bark and yep it's sort of yappy, so this is something you need to be aware of. I would ... (Read More)really love to have a smoke free home with a playmate so I don't get lonely. Oh and a fenced yard is preferable so I can run and run and run.... gotta release some of this energy. If you think I might fit in to your family, please contact my foster mom Jennifer LeMaster.

    The VERY pregnant mom we got in yesterday morning is named Peanut. She is out with Addie to whelp her puppies and we are positive Addie will take great care of Peanut and her babies. As you can see from the picture - she is indeed VERY pregnant. Since we don't have any information on when she got pregnant or who the dad or dads were - we will have to wait and see when she delivers and what she delivers. We can tell you she appears pretty uncomfortable. Unfortunately she ended up in a shelter that was short on space and was not even willing to put a lot of time and effort into her and she would have been put down. Knowing it was risky to ...

She made it safe and sound - yes uncomfortable - but very much alive and most definitely better off than she would have been today had we not brought her along. We got this update from Addie on Peanut and we are confient that Addie will keep us updated on her progress. She reminds me a lot of taya. She loves kisses and to give kisses. Gets aong great with dogs and cats. She is afraid of the tile floors. She is 100 percent housetrained. She is just an awesome girl. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-27-00653Harley (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I'm Harley, a two year old, 36 pound Australian Cattle Dog. I'm a young single male looking for a long term forever relationship. I may not be tall dark and handsome but I didn't lie about my age and weight. I'm kinda short but most humans think I'm cute, especially when I smile and move my ears. These things make me happy: 'ۢ Playing with other dogs. Big or small, I love them all. 'ۢ Going for walks or runs. 'ۢ Following my human all around the house. 'ۢ Chew toys and snuggles. 'ۢ A fenced yard to run and play with my buddies. 'ۢ A dining companion. I don't like to eat alone. These things make me (and everyone else sad): ... (Read More)'ۢ Cats, I poke my nose repeatedly (poke, poke, poke,) at them. They look like self-propelled squeaky toys. The cats are not amused. 'ۢ Small children. They scare me. Those things move fast and make lots of weird loud noises. 'ۢ People who try to physically force me to do something that scares me. I have not had a lot of positive attention from humans in my short life. Now I know that many humans are kind but we need to build a relationship based on trust, not on you dominating me. I'll probably be ok doing whatever you want but I need to understand what it is you want and not be forced into doing something I don't understand. If you like the same things I do, I'd love to meet you. I'm up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm tested and microchipped. If you would like to meet me please start the process by filling out the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about me please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, Iowa only please. Adoption donation $200. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This handsome boy is Dudley, a 7 year old Chocolate Lab who weighs 55 pounds. He came to us from a small no-kill shelter where he spent a year waiting for someone to love him. Dudley cowered in his kennel and didn't interact with anyone during that time. Dudley is now in a foster home with 3 other dogs and 2 cats who are doing a great job of teaching Dudley how to be a normal dog. For weeks Dudley watched the other dogs play from the safety of his crate but didn't want to come out and interact. Dudley now happily plays with the other dogs, he even does the play bow to initiate play with them. Dudley loves his fenced yard to run and play ... (Read More)in. He likes to chase and be chased by his dog buddies. His forever home needs another dog for him to play with. Because Dudley had very little human contact for a long time he can be shy at first. He does warm up quickly and has learned humans serve a useful purpose, they can scratch his rump where he can't reach and talk to him and tell him what a good boy he is. Dudley now seeks the attention and affection of humans. Dudley is kennel trained and views the kennel as his safe place. He never makes a mess in his kennel when his foster mom is at work. Dudley's housetraining is coming along but not perfect yet. He wears a belly band to prevent any accidents happening with carpet or furniture. Dudley is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm tested and microchipped. He does have a slight heart murmur but doesn't require any meds or show any symptoms.

    Charlie's fostered in Bettendorf Iowa 52722, through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org To find out more about Charlie, contact his foster mamma at:ayrisen@gmail.com Charlie's a 3yr old 6 lb. bundle of love. This little Yorkie boy came to United Yorkie Rescue in January 2016. Relatively new to rescue, his personality isn't completely known yet, so far he seems a little shy, but warms up quickly. Charlie will benefit from learning to play and be a dog, he's content relaxing on the couch, loves to give kisses and when he wants attention he gently puts a paw on you and gives those puppy eyes that you just can't say no to. The ... (Read More)house he came from had a lot of dogs and he always stayed inside. As a result he is very scared when you bring him outside, this is a work in progress. He's working on his potty training and will need a patient home understanding and willing to work with him on this. He gets along with other small dogs and cats his size, he has not been around large dogs, but because of his size it would be best if his forever home had children old enough to understand and respect his small size. This adorable little boy is full of love and just needs a home willing to commit a little time to helping him. To complete an application on Charlie, go to http://unitedyorkierescue.org (Less)

    This is Shorty. We want you to meet Izzy's puppies even though they aren't yet ready to go home. They are 6 weeks old and we have sent them out to foster.

Estimated date of birth on these kids is 12/4/15. There are four girls and two boys in the litter. Current plan, if everything is on schedule, is that we will complete their vetting on February 2, 2015 and they will be able to go home on the 6th of February.

Siberian Husky    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Champ is an awesome dog. As you can tell, he is a Siberian Husky. He came in full of fleas and worms but that is all behind him now! He is fun, energetic and gets along well with the other dogs. He has good manners but is still learning how not to jump up and bump people. If you are considering a Siberian Husky please do your research - you must have a way to contain him and not on a tie out. Siberians are runners and jumpers. We firmly believe that Champ is housebroken. He is a talker. He is just about two years old and is available now for a forever home.

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-10-00407Marlowe (male)

Bluetick Coonhound    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    I would not charge a fee for adoption but I would ask for any placement costs like driving him somewhere, for example. I also believe he is purebred, but I'm not sure, and I have no papers. He is up to date on most vaccinations, but I believe he needs Parvo. I love Marlowe, he is wonderful, but I live in a home with three cats and two other dogs. He has a citronella collar to help curb his barking as gently as possibly (it has not been a problem since I got the collar), and aside from his normal anxiety, he cries when he is both happy and sad, and he is an incredibly sweet dog. He is well behaved but not very intelligent, loves cuddles, ... (Read More)walks, runs and kisses. I've taken him on 8 mile runs before! Socializing him with cats is VERY hard, and he does know one cat I have very well and there tends to be no conflict there. He has lived in three different places this year because we've moved around a bit, and I think he would do better being the only dog in a somewhat stable home. He is a fantastic runner, but has not done well with the invisible fence we have and has run away a few times, but he always comes back. He is very mild, very adorable, and is content to sit on a couch but also likes runs. He needs to be in a home with no cats so he is not so nervous, his hunting tail is always wagging and he gets riled up. Aside, he just follows me around and sits at my feet, staring at me with his big brown eyes. I absolutely adore this animal and I'm his second owner because his first owner left the country. I would love to keep him but I have a job that requires long hours an it's hard to get him the exercise he needs in the winter. (Here it is very cold!) (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hennessy is a 4 year old housebroke male German Shepherd. He doesn't chew things or cause any problems. He is a very good boy. I adopted him 2 years ago and am now going back to school and working full time and just dont have the time that he needs. He is great with people once he learns to trust them. I believe he was abused when he was younger which results in him not trusting people at all. He has never bit anyone but dislikes kids the most. He listens well and is well mannered once you build a bond with him. He is also fine with kids once he learns he can trust them. He is a lover and his favorite things to do are play fetch, tug and ... (Read More)cuddle. He needs to go to a home with someone who has the time to spend with him and doesn't have a lot of people in and out as this creates a great deal of anxiety for him.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Boya has been with us over two months. He came to us nearly starved to death with all of his ribs showing and hip bones protruding. He only weighed 26 pounds. He has been out to foster and the foster home has done an AMAZING job with him. He is now at 47 pounds - looks happy and healthy. All of his hair has grown back from where he was eaten alive with fleas. His ears have healed where they were chewed up by flies. The foster home reports that he is 100% housebroken and is a very lovable and cuddly boy. He is not a youngster. He is about 8 years old. He seems to get along with everyone. He needs a home where he can be loved for ... (Read More)the rest of his life. He doesn't deserve to be locked in a cage with no food ever again. All of his vet work is complete - he just needs a loving home. Please share his picture and story so this boy can find a home to call his own. The vet thinks he might be part Siberian Husky but that is doubtful. He definitely appears to have some Terrier in him because of the whiskers on his face. Please help us find Boya a forever home.

German Shorthaired Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We want you to meet Chase. He was a stray that came in that no one ever claimed. He doesn't appear to be very old and is very shy. He is a nice dog if you sit down with him one on one and give him attention but as of yet he isn't seeking any attention. He was found wandering around just after Christmas. We will be getting all of his vet work completed and he will be ready for adoption by January 7th. It appears he may have been an outside dog as he is not real thrilled with being kept inside. When we let him outside we have to force him to come back inside. He appears very nervous with all of the other dogs in house right now. He does ... (Read More)seem to react positively when he sees kids so best guess is that he was with a family in the past. We are at a loss on what breed as we see a couple of possibilities in him. We will let his potential adopters decide what breed he is. (Less)

    Bear is a stray that came into us and was never claimed so we don't have a lot of history on him. He is estimated to be about two years old. He is a medium sized dog at 58 pounds. He is very friendly - seems to really be good with kids. We have seen no problems with him with other dogs We have not yet tested him with cats so if someone falls in love with him we will have to test that. He is now neutered, current on his shots, has had his heartworm check (negative) and is now micro-chipped.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Who wants a small dog that is playful, sweet and smart? If that is you, then you have to meet Casey. Casey is 7 and a half pounds of Chihuahua and Terrier magic. He has that adorable Chihuahua prancing run and the trainability of a terrier. Casey is only 2 years old and is very playful. He would love to have another small dog to play with but he also likes to play with people. He loves small squeaky toys and just about has the concept of fetch down. We only named him Casey a couple of days ago when we sprung him from a local shelter and he already answers to the name. He loves to be near his people. He might be a little shy at the ... (Read More)first meeting, but once he knows you are nice to him he will give you kisses and follow you. Casey will patiently wait for a treat and will sit nicely to receive it. Casey gets along with most other dogs, he is a little cautious of big dogs. Casey gets along with dog savvy cats who are tolerant of him wanting to play with them. He is just a happy little guy who just wants the other animals to play with him. Casey is NOT a yappy little dog. He does bark occasionally, but it is usually because he is trying to get someone to play with him. Casey will settle in a crate, but he prefers to sleep in bed with his people under the covers. When you hold him close he likes to lick and nip at your nose. He is a dog that will make you smile every day. He is a joy to be around. Casey is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm tested and microchipped. Casey is housetrained and crate trained. Because of his small size and quick moves we would not recommend him for a home with small children, but he is good with somewhat older children. If you would like to meet Casey, please complete our adoption application that can be found on our website, www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Casey you can contact lynette@furfunrescue.org or call 319-310-3120. Casey would love to start the new year in a forever home. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200. (Less)

So Bingo is available for adoption again. We have tested him with other dogs here and so far he does show aggression with larger dogs and gives a warning growl to smallerdogs.

    Punkin Pie is a young ridgeback mix. From our best guess Punkin was used as a bait dog. She has learned that not all people and other dogs are bad after all. She currently lives with male and female dogs, big & small, 2 cats and kids. However it does take Punkin awhile to warm up to someone new she has learned to trust quickly. She has mastered the art of sitting for a treat and is working really hard on other basis commands and house training. She is still very much a puppy and needs a very understanding family to call her own.

As ive stated he has now clue as to how big he is and he puts his mouth on everything, we have been working on redirecting this to teach him that he is never allowed to put his moth on people.

She is doing great in with another dog who has confidence has she doesn't seem to have much confidence on her own. We were told she does have separation anxiety so either a home with someone who is home all the time or another confident dog would be best for her. She lacks the basic manners that a puppy should learn and is still pretty mouthy. She will need work in that area so we don't believe she should go to a home with small children.

American Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Nola is a 4-year-old, 90 lb. American bulldog born in Louisiana. She is spayed, vaccinated and heartworm negative. She is a sweet, well-mannered, obedient girl and is eager to please her owner. She is house-trained but is kenneled when left alone. She is good at walking on a leash and knows many commands including: sit, lay down, stay, come, wait, okay, shake, high-five, speak, leave it, etc. Nola is a typical female bulldog with an alpha personality. She likes to be the boss of other dogs so she is looking for a home where she will be the only dog and doesn't have to share her owner's attention. She is not a dog that is socialized enough ... (Read More)at this time for dog parks or daycare. She has never been around cats but would most likely do best without them. She LOVES people but may 'huff' at someone if she doesn't know them at first. Also like many bulldogs, Nola has sensitive skin but when treated with gentle shampoo her skin has been okay. Nola tore one of her ACLs a few years ago and had surgery to correct it. Since then, to avoid tearing the other ACL, her activity has been controlled as much as possible to running in a straight, forward motion, with less free running. Nola is a wonderful, special girl that deserves to be part of a child-free, single-dog family, and at this time we are unfortunately unable to provide her with this. We are seeking a family that can give her the one-on-one attention that she needs. (Less)

He is housebroken and does great with other dogs. He likes to play rough so probably good with another large dog. He does have a couple of issues that should be taken into consideration: 1. He does not like car rides and is really hard to get in a vehicle. 2. At some point something has happened to him while on a leash - so when you go to put his leash on him he does turn around and nip at you. 3. He is somewhat toy possessive with his toys. Once he has ... (Read More)them he thinks they belong to him forever. We would not recommend him in a home with small children because of his nipping when you take his collar. (Less)

He is about 5 years old and he is a Terrier mix of some sort. He is a pretty chilled out guy. Not lots of energy going on here. If you want a couch potato Noe might be just the right kid for you. He is very quiet - we haven't heard a peep out of him. He likes his food and he likes a soft place to lay. He is an awesome boy - just needs a home that understands not to expect a young and playful puppy.

He has recovered very well from surgery and has now been released to find a home. He has put back on some of the weight he lost during that time but can still use a few more pounds. He is an awesome dog, housebroken, gets along with kids and adults. It appears he gets along better with female dogs than male dogs. He might be a little too rough for cats. Don't let his age fool you - he is still very much a pup. Play, jump, run and then ... (Read More)do it all again. His new family has to be aware that he does still chew things up and DOES swallow them. A home with older kids would be perfect for him so he has playmates that can deal with his energy. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-09-19-00118Ariel (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This pretty little girl is Ariel. We believe she may have some boxer in her but what else is there is totally unknown. She is under 30 pounds and is under two years old. She was transferred to us from another rescue when they were having a hard time finding her a home and were considering putting her down. The explanation was that she gets protective over one individual. We have not seen that since she has been here and we have been working at exposing her to lots of different people. She now seems fine when multiple people are around but she would be a perfect companion for a single individual. We have been told she will do fine ... (Read More)with another dog for a couple of days then she gets bossy. We would recommend she be an only dog. We have not made an attempt to put her with another dog - we just don't want to put anyone at risk. We can tell you that she loves to snuggle up and thinks she should sit as close to you as is possible. She is housebroken and is crate trained. Come on out and visit Ms. Ariel. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-31-00648VanPelt (male)

Bichon Frise    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Remember Van Pelt? He came to us in October from the horrible puppy mill situation where dogs were left to die. He has been in a foster home and is still available for adoption. Van Pelt is a 7 year old Bichon who lived his life in a cage and was severely neglected. Foster updates are the best as you can get a true picture of what the dog is like in a home environment. A huge thank you to the foster home for doing so much for this guy. Van Pelt is available for visitors with an appointment so we can get him from the foster home to the shelter. Here is the update from his foster mom as well as a current picture: Van Pelt is doing well. He ... (Read More)is more comfortable around people but still skittish and doesn't like being touched (though he will put up with it). He is completely comfortable with everything else. He loves to run and has claimed his favorite places to sleep. He doesn't need to be kept in a kennel anymore at night and doesn't need to have a leash on all the time anymore, as he no longer hides and will let me catch him if I have to. He likes people, just not too close. He follows me everywhere and gets upset if I leave him. He likes the dogs even more. That is how I got him to trust me, as he will do anything they will. He will really needs a home with other dogs. He is not comfortable alone. Stan didn't blame the dog for biting him. Actually it made him feel even more sorry for Van Pelt. Van Pelt must have been in a very bad situation to lash out so aggressively. He latched on to Stan's hand and wouldn't let go. It was an unusual situation and I don't think it would happen again. It was when Van Pelt spent the nights in the kennel. When Stan got up, he would put the leash on and let Van Pelt out. That morning Van Pelt was in the corner and wouldn't come near him, so Stan basically had to crawl half way into the kennel (it's big, so he couldn't reach). He didn't realize that the dog would see that as aggression and get scared. Now it is a non-issue as Van Pelt prefers to be free with the other dogs (and me) and doesn't need to be in the kennel anymore. Other than that one time, he is completely submissive. Shortly after we got him, we took him to one of those self-bath places for dogs. He stood completely still and let us both touch him all over. I make sure to pet him every day and hold him it my lap, most days. He has a hard time making eye contact, but we have been working on it and he is doing much better. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-06-00446Ernie (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind, Malnourished 

    Ernie is a special dog who has come a long way. Ernie is a senior, terrier mix who came to us after he was found by the side of the road completely emaciated and dehydrated. We had never seen a dog that was literally skin and bones. He weighed 11 pounds and he should weigh about 16-18 pounds. After spending a few days at the Eastern Iowa Veterinary Specialty Clinic getting hydrated and running tests we found out he was diabetic and mostly blind. But some insulin and regular meals were all he would need to slowly get healthy again. That is what he has been getting over the last several weeks and he is gaining weight and getting his ... (Read More)strength back. Ernie's diabetes is under control with two injections each day at meal times. We don't know how old Ernie is, but he is probably at least 11 years old. He is mostly blind, but he has no trouble finding his way around his foster home. He can even find his way back in through the dog door from the backyard. Ernie is house trained and has never had an accident; even when he was drinking a lot because his diabetes was still coming under control. If he needs to go out and can't get outside on his own, he will bark to let you know. Of course, Ernie loves his food after being hungry for so long. If you want to see him at his most active, let him know his food is coming soon. He becomes a wiggle worm who is almost impossible to hold onto. Now that he is feeling better and has some energy to pull from he is showing us more of his personality. He loves to have his ears rubbed and his chest scratched. As a senior he takes lots of dog naps and he has a cute, breathy snore when he is sleeping. Ernie is a great guy to just hang out with. Because Ernie is mostly blind we were prefer that he have a fenced yard so he can have some freedom outside. He would also need a home without many stairs or a way to keep him away from any open staircases. The ideal home for Ernie would be a quiet home without small children and someone who can get him out every 4-6 hours. Ernie does fine with other dogs that respect his space and food bowl. If you would like to give Ernie the home he deserves, please complete our adoption application that can be found at www.furfunrescue.org. You can contact lynette@furfunrescue.org if you have questions about Ernie, or call 319-310-3120. You can also see his progress that was documented through a YouCaring page at www.yourcaring.com/help_Ernie. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $150. (Less)

    NOAH is an affectionate and energetic boy who loves to play with Casey, who is at the same foster home. He is a 70-lb. dog, 6-year-old pit bull terrier. Noah has been waiting a long time and it is so unfair that he does not have a family or person of his own. Noah has not been around kids so he needs to find an adult-only home. He should be the only male dog, but he is very good with most females, even bossy ones! Can you provide a safe and loving home for this deserving boy?

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Iowa
    Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
