    My name is Chili and I am the sweetest little 6 year old Chihuahua you will ever meet. My foster mom says I am a very low maintenance dog. I am not destructive, I don't bark a lot. I don't require a lot of exercise. Best of all I am completely house and kennel trained. I get along with other dogs and cats but I really like people. I would love to snuggle with you. My favorite activity is to sit on a lap and watch whatever you want on TV. I will follow you all over because I am interested in everything you do. I come running when you call me and get used to routines very easily. I would like a home with a lap to sit on. The more ... (Read More)laps the better. If there are children, they have to understand my delicate physique because I am a little guy at just 5.6 pounds. I am ready for my forever home. Chili is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, micro chipped and recently had a dental. For more information about Chili you can contact Roxanne at rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. The adoption application can be completed at www.furfunrescue.org and submitted online.

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    All of us office volunteers are lucky enough to have a new office worker among us. She doesn't do filing but does lay by the file cabinets so that accounts for something right? She occasionally dribbles on paperwork but is willing to lick the drool off. Yeah, that doesn't work real well but we are so happy to have Bacall exploring new areas that we excuse anything. Bacall has made so much progress but still has a ways to go. She is still very shy with strangers. She loves to go for walks now but will still hesitate at doorways. We enjoy working with her. She is just a pleasure to be with and has so much heart! Bacall is a 5 year old ... (Read More)blue Neopolitan Mastiff. She weighs just over 8 pounds.

Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet BoBo people that know the rescue have known Bo for a long time. ***If you do NOT have EVERY REQUIREMENT MET PLEASE DO NOT apply, The answer will be NO. Bo has had a $500 adoption fee because im very annoyed with ppl wanting a 'cheep' bulldog Vawalla now hes not 'cheep' my personal opinion if u want cheep you should NOT be looking at English Bulldogs. This boy is AMAZING and we all love him, he is certainly a volunteer favorite. I really want Bo to find his own loving home that understands his needs and will be able to keep him safe. **Requirements** NO cats No other pets Must have English experience No children under 8 Must have a ... (Read More)sturdy fenced in yard (this does NOT mean a dog kennel propped against your back door) Must have vet reference NO renters must be an established family I you are not absolutely PERFECT for him please don't waste my time. Bobo is happy here and we are all happy to take care of him we just want better. Now about our Bobo: he is 3yr male OE he is neutered and UTD on vet care. He HATES cats and he is very athletic (you know that adorable squishy face lazy bully dog hoggn the sofa sleeping the day away that all bully lovers want??? Yah thats NOT him)Bo can run for miles and i mean run, he needs to be watched closely because he will overheat himself in a hurry if you dont. He is territorial and he is guarding of 'his things' he is also very obsessive over his toys. Bobo is social and does along with some dogs as long as toys are not around . As for children, they need to know how to handle him and they will be fine. We want older children because Bo will use his size to get what he wants. Bo does NOT have any of the normal OE health problems... he is alot happier with a grain free diet, cheep food gives him itchy skin and ear infections. He LOVES his little pool and he loves loves loves to play. If you have the perfect family for Bobo and you are interested in getting to know him please contact us for an adoption application. (Less)

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

    We want you to meet Carlos. He is an English Pointer who is approaching his senior years. He is about 7 years old and he finds himself in a shelter. He is a very nice guy and seems to enjoy his food just a tad too much. He is housebroken. His owner reported that he is high energy and is very excited when he meets new people. His owner just didn't have the time to get him the exercise he needed. So an active home would be best for him - he definitely needs the exercise. He gets along well with other dogs if introduced properly. He hasn't had any experience with cats. He does good with children but gets very excited and will knock small ... (Read More)children over.

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Greta is a sweet and active german shepherd puppy that was born in November 2014. She underwent a front leg amputation in February and has healed well. Having three legs has not slowed her down at all. Her right front leg/ankle also has some issues and we are doing exercises to build up the muscles and give her some additional strength in that leg. Like all puppies, she is full of life and does not know a stranger. She will need an experienced dog owner. She is not quite available to be adopted, but we are taking applications and once spayed we will begin processing any applications received. Her spay surgery is scheduled for April 15, 2015.

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

    JP is our little bichon friend. He has a really hard time in the back kennel so I've move him to the front and made him my office Pooch. Its very rewarding watching him change. He needs a home with someone that can give him time... A lot of time. He CAN NOT be kenneled so he will need an area (a large kitchen or room with easy to clean floors would be best) as he panics in small spaces. J is good to kids but he can not handle the stress of their energy, grandkids would be better. He gets along with other dogs and really enjoys cats. He has been neutered and us current on shots he also had a full dental cleaning. JP have become very special ... (Read More)to me, he is the kind of dog that needs a family that wants to help him, not just a pet. J will be more work than other adoption but he has so much love to give as soon as he trust you enough to give it to you. I have earned J's trust so I know it can be done. We started by simply teaching him how to walk on a leash now he will fallow me everywhere off leash, he never wants to leave my side. I want a home for him that can keep him close to them always :) J has some really bad separation anxiety and I think it would greatly improve in a calm home. If you feel you can give JP the perfect home please contact us for an adoption application (Less)

    Mr. Nelson (the red pooch) has come such a long way from the day i picked him up. He is such a sweet loving dog now. When i got him he was a fear biter and had been 'kicked out' of two shelters as un-adoptable. To be honest i wasn't sure that it was going to work either BUT i'm so glad we tried because he has turned out to be alot of fun. Nelson LOVES to learn, he knows some basic commands and some fun tricks. he can jump really high for how small he is. (He has not attempted to escape out 6' fence but i'm pretty sure he can get out of a 4'. Nelson needs a family that understands the terrier breed and knows how to 'work' him. Agility would ... (Read More)do wonders for him and he would absolutely love it. **Good with kids** Nelson is good with my kids and volunteers the bigger question is are your kids going to be good to him. If he is treated like a toy chances are the child will get bit. My youngest daughter is 4 and nelson loves her dearly but she also knows how to be respectful to him. **Cats** Nelson is a terrier I can command him to leave a cat alone and he has learned that my cats are off limits BUT if given the opportunity and the right situation their may be a sad ending for the cat. Especially if its a barn cat that runs. Nelson is very clean in his kennel and Very well crate trained, Please expect accidents and time to retrain him to your home and life style. Mr. Nelson would Love a job to do and a family to love him if you feel you are a good fit for this little guy please request an adoption application :) (Less)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

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

    Odie is a busy boy. He likes to keep busy and doesn't stay still for very long. Odie is a 5 year old Yorkie (Yorkshire Terrier), but he acts much younger. Once he has had plenty of play time, Odie is happy to take a snooze on your lap. Odie came to us when his owner surrendered him because she could not keep up with him. He is a happy and sweet boy who makes quick stops to give you kisses as his way of checking in while he finds things to do. If you have another young, small dog they most likely would be great play buddies. Because Odie is so active he needs a fenced yard to keep him safe as he plays. It would be best if the door used ... (Read More)the most opens into the fenced yard because Odie isn't good at waiting for permission to go out. He is a smart boy who just needs that special person in his life who will give him time and attention to teach him the right things to do. Odie was not given much training as a young dog, but adult dogs can learn new tricks. Odie is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm tested and microchipped. Odie is housebroken. He was not crate trained but his foster home is working with him on that so that he can learn to be calm in a crate if it is ever needed. For more information about Odie, please contact lynette@furfunrescue.org. You can begin the adoption process by completing the adoption application that can be found on our website at www.furfunrescue.org.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Dewey is the only one of his litter, found in a cardboard box at the side of a gravel road, who looks to be a Boston terrier mix. Since we have no way of knowing who his parents were, we can only guess that he may be smaller in size as an adult (12-18lbs). Dewey is a real sweetheart who loves to play outside and run around with his brothers and sister. He is very social and a real cuddle-bug when he gets tired. Dewey enjoys playing with his toys, tugging and chasing, and seems to be the 'thinker' of the group. Dewey is just over 8 weeks old, so he needs a little more time in his foster home before he will be ready for his forever home. If ...

    Remy is a three year old Bernese Mountain Dog - Don't let the size in the photo fool you -- he's a pretty big boy! He came from a farm where he ran free --- but he has a high prey drive for things like cats, chickens and goats, so he didn't work out well. He absolutely loves people, both adults and children, and so far seems to get along with other larger dogs. We don't think he will do well with a smaller dog due to his prey drive. We would love to find him a home where he is able to be inside, but with a fence so he doesn't prey on the neighbor's critters. I can't say enough about his temperament around people -- he is really a ... (Read More)nice dog.

    My name is Midnight. I am a beautiful girl and under two years old. I am a German Shepherd. Life has not been good for me up until now. I had an owner who didn't really care about me. My owner kept getting warnings from the police for not taking care of me and providing me with the necessities of life so they finally took me in the house to keep me out of the eye sight of people who kept turning my owner in and kept me locked in a kennel for 90% of the time. Finally my family got tired of being watched by the police for further neglecting me and gave me up. Another rescuer got me and brought me here to Patriot's so that they could take good ... (Read More)care of me and fine me an awesome home. I am very sweet and just want someone to pay attention to me. I have a great appetite and love having food available to me without having to worry about where my next meal is coming from. I love the kids that are around here at Patriot's - they were all willing to pet me, talk to me and be nice to me - wow it is pretty good around here. Patriot's has promised to find me a home where I will be the 'center of attention' I hope they are right. That would be so awesome for me. I am curious about all the things around here that go Meow but I haven't been mean to them. I get along with other dogs because the person who took care of me until I could get here to Patriot's had other dogs and the things that go Meow and I did fine with them. Will you, or someone you know, make me an important part of your life? If so, come on out and visit me or share me with your friends. Happy to be safe and loved, Midnight (Less)

    **We are just networking Jax for owner** Jax is in need of a new home. He is almost 1 yr old, pit mix, and will need an active person to help run off his energy. He is fully vetted and neutered. He loves other dogs, not sure on cats. Due to his energy level, older children or no children would be best.

Even after all of that, she LOVES people! She is used to sleeping in her volunteer siblings bed. Other dogs are tolerated when they are calm and do not invade her space. We would like to see her go to a home with no other animals. She likes to play but needs supervision with other dogs. She loves kids and is kennel trained.

Once they meet her standards she joins the fun quietly and gently. Dixie is the most comfortable outside, she immediately trades her quietness for energetic playfulness! Dixie is really looking for a running partner or a fenced in back yard where she can stretch her long legs in a good run! Our Southern Bell will tolerate a kennel, but isn't accustomed to being in one all day, with her perfect record in house training and respect for house hold items she gets ...

My current family is pretty awesome, they have 3 kids and I am great with them. I have another dog friend, Casey, and we get along great, share a kennel and play together; I will miss her but I LOVE to tree animals! LOVE IT! You will most definitely be aware that I found the game. Oh, I am house trained but if you leave anything on the counters and aren't looking I probably already ate it. I am looking for a new place because the family I am with is just not into hunting, they got me because I ... (Read More)looked so awesome and they wanted two dogs at the same time. They didn't figure out I was a Walker until I was home with them for a while and, well, I bark, regularly. but since you are reading about a Walker you are probably already laughing like me. Now, I must tell you, I don't just want any home, I want a darn good home. Someone who is going to look after me, feed me, treat me with respect and love, and it would be great to have another dog friend, I mean I am sure you are great but, well, you just aren't a dog. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll have my Papa answer you. Thanks! (Less)

They fed and watered me when they remembered. One of my family's relatives took me because they felt sorry for me but I was just too much to handle. I got along fine with the other dogs in the home and with the kids but I wasn't there long enough to learn all the good things I should know like sit, stay, walking on a leash, etc, as my new mom had ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-09-00356Bentley (male)

Dachshund    Age: Adult

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

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Bentley is a full of life, loving, charming, sweet boy who has always been extremely active. In his younger years he spent time with me as an office dog, playing with every patient who came in. Later, he enjoyed camping, canoeing, swimming, fetching on water, playing fetch tirelessly. He could grab food from the kitchen counter. (He is a 13 lb dachshund - this is no small feat!) Unfortunately, all this activity caught up with him in January of 2014 when a disc exploded in his back. He was paralyzed in his hind legs and lost the ability to eliminate on his own. Bentley had surgery (discectomy and ... (Read More)hemi-laminectomy) and I brought him home. I expressed his bladder and bowel for him and rehabilitated him for months. He is now mobile with just a slightly altered gait. He can move as fast as ever, and still loves to fetch. His perseverance through this process has moved me greatly. Unfortunately, Bentley has not completely regained bowel and bladder control. He has some control, but not complete. I would guess 70% (this is being measured at ISU as well and exact numbers may be available after the trial.) He has also acquired some behavioral issues relating to elimination in the house. I work full time running my own practice and have a 3 year old daughter. I have tried for a year to give Bentley everything he needs. We love him dearly. But I am gone from 8 am till 6 pm most days, and spend a lot of my time with my 3 yr old when we are home. Bentley doesn't get the attention he needs to succeed, and is severely depressed. He is currently enrolled in the Clinical Trial for Paralyzed dogs at ISU in hopes that his bowel and bladder function will improve or even return to normal. This trial runs through June and is already paid for, so I hope to rehome him to someone willing to take him to ISU for a week 2 or 3 more times. If he is in fact in the placebo group of this trial, he will get the real drug at the end of the clinical trial anyway so that he can have a fighting chance at improvement. It breaks my heart, but Bentley needs someone who can give him more attention and who can be with him more during the day. While at ISU for the trial, Bentley rarely has accidents. While with my parents, Bentley rarely has accidents. I believe if he was happy again, he would be able to succeed. And so, I am in search of that special person who can be that for my sweet boy. Please be that for him. (Less)

    I have a male Lhasa apso that is six years old. I have been the only owner. He is a very sweet dog but he needs lots of attention and is very protective. I have two children now and he does not do well with babies or any children. He will do better with an older couple. He loves to snuggle and be center of attention. Would be better in a single dog home and no cats. He is updated on shots. He has sensitive stomach so can't have any people food or treats. He eats science diet for sensitive stomachs.He loves going for walks and does really well if he is in a fenced yard for playtime. He takes awhile to warm up to strangers but he doesnt bite.

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

    Boozie (aka BooBoo, Boo, and Bubby) is a 6 year old Boston Terrier mix with a heart of gold. He is playful, cuddly, walks great on a leash, and enjoys all the time he can get with his people. He loves to be outdoors where he can roam and explore, often times just keeping a watchful eye on his neighborhood. Boozie came to us with a dislocated elbow...but that has not effected his eagerness to run, jump, and even chase rabbits through the yard! This old injury has been examined by our vets and does not require any surgeries or medication at this time. This gentle, loveable boy has been around cats, other dogs, kids, men, and women and loves ... (Read More)them all. He enjoys rides in the car, trips to the pet store, and soft, cushy toys to throw around. Boozie does not require a kennel as he is housetrained and picks up, very quickly, on where his exits are to go outside. He will sleep in a kennel without whining or fuss, but would prefer to be in bed with his people. He is also very treat motivated and will be easy to train, if his forever home so chooses to teach him new tricks. Boo really is a favorite of his foster mom and is a joy to have around. He has a face that will melt your heart, beautiful coat markings, and a temperament that will be a great fit for many homes. He is ready for his forever home as he is heartworm negative, up to date on all his vaccinations, and neutered. Meet this quirky canine and see if he doesn't steal your heart! Boozie is housebroken and weighs 33 pounds. He is microchipped, heartworm checked, up to date on vaccinations and neutered.

Animal ID: 14-110Bella (female)

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    12/3/2014 Bella has had a rough life so far. After looking further into her issues, it has been noted that she probably has chemical burns on and around her eyes which is why she was in so much pain that she needed morphine. When she first arrived in rescue, Bella wouldn't/couldn't open her eyes. It was thought then that the reason was untreated dry eye. It was recommended that Bella have drops in her eyes 6-8 times a day which was a problem because she wouldn't let anyone near her face. To be able to even attempt eye drops, Bella had to be sedated first. Where as we know this is NOT a good solution long term, it did allow us to treat her ... (Read More)eyes for a36 hours while we waited to get into the Opthamologist. During the appointment with the eye Doctor, it was noted that she had severe corneal ulcers that would probably need surgery to releave the pain and to hopefully restore what vision we could. We were sent home with several medications to try to get the healing process started before surgery - which could have happened today. I dropped Bella off at the vet at 6:45 this AM and just heard back from the Opthamologist. The drops we were able to get in have worked magic with her. The large, severe ulcer in her left eye is 100% healed and the smaller but deeper ulcer in her right eye is 98% healed. This is fantastic news for Bella! We are unsure as to how much she can see, but as long as there is enough light, she can see well. At this time, Bella will not need surgery. The Opthamologist wants to see her every week for a month or so to ensure she remains on track medically. The next step for Bella is to hopefully work with a behaviorist to help her learn how to tolerate the eye drops since she still does have Dry Eye. Bella also will need to work on her manners as her first response to someone new is to charge at them. Because of Bella's suspected abuse, she will need to learn to trust people again. Bella is a very active 10 month old pup who needs that special house to help her regain trust in people again. Once her medical needs are met, she will be available for adoption! If you are looking for a companion who loves walks, treats, a good game of fetch, and her own home, and are willing to work with Bella on her trust issues, Bella is the one for you! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-20-00268Nayeli (female)

Pointer    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy 

    Sweet baby girl Nayeli is a TRUE RESCUE! Her name is very fitting for her past life. Ancient Mayans (and Zapotec Indians) would use the word Nayeli to tell someone 'I love you.' :) Nayeli was found in the backyard of a home tied to a dog house with no bottom in it and mud all around her. She was confined to her area by a 16 pound logging chain!!!!!! Her body had started to deteriorate due to lack of food and care. She was truly lucky that an animal control officer just happened to see her peeking her head out from her 'dog house.' Once removed from the yard, it was found that Nayeli was being neglected. Her entire body was covered ... (Read More)in layers of yuck! She smelled, had had no food in some time, no water available to her, and was living in a dog house with no floor. Yet, she was the sweetest girl when the loving hand of the animal control officer came to release her (and another dog) from the property. (the previous owner has since been found guilty of neglect and sentenced). Nayeli spent a few weeks gaining back weight and being evaluated by vetrinarians. It was discovered that Nayeli's journey was only just beginning. Nayeli was diagnosed with heartworms. :( She has since moved to foster care in Des Moines, Iowa. She lives with 2 children under the age of 4 and another resident female doggy. Nayeli knows sit, shake and down. She is crate trained but does bark when you initially put her in. She wants to be with her people!! :) Because Nayeli has always been with other dogs, and due to her past experiences, she would fair better in a home with another dog...BUT NO CATS! She likes to see what is on the counter from time to time but is getting better with controlling her urges. :) At night she sleeps in a big cushy doggy bed with her foster sister and will let you sleep in if you ask her to lie down for a quick 5 minute snooze on the alarm. :) Nayeli was given the okay to start the process to treat her heartworms. It is an uphill and EXPENSIVE battle. Her treatments will cost just over $1000!!! Nayeli is currently available for sponsorship. The money would go directly to her heartworm treatments. Thank you for taking a peek at our wonderful girl Nayeli. If you think she may be a fit for your home, once she is healthy enough for adoption, please inquire on her. She truly is a RESCUE doggy. :) For German Shorthaired Pointers: GPPR covers the states of Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota For English Pointers: GPPR will adopt within the Midwestern States where we have volunteers located. Please be sure to ask if your state is included. (Less)

    I am George. I am about 2 1/2 years old and am a lab mix. I have not had a very easy life. In July of this year I was diagnosed with Heartworm.

My new family needs to make sure I stay on Heartworm medication next Summer to assure I don't get Heartworm again. Come on out and show me that there are kind people who love animals.

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!

    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.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal.
