Rescue Me ID: 17-02-20-00451Sissy (female)

Beagle    Age: Puppy

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

    This beautiful Beagle girl is Sissy. Sissy is only 18 months old and weighs 24 pounds. Sissy, for unknown reasons, was surrendered by her previous owner to a shelter In Kansas that was full and asking for help. We answered the call and moved Sissy to one of our foster homes. Sissy loves to be outdoors and would love to have a fenced back yard to play in. She holds her Beagle tail straight up as she runs through her yard. Like most Beagles, she follows her nose so she needs to be watched in case she finds an interesting scent and wants to leave her yard to follow it. She gets along well with other dogs and happily runs with the pack. ... (Read More)Sissy also does very well with meeting new people and is very social. She goes to each person for a little pet and attention before moving on. Sissy is housetrained and has good house manners. She is young, but old enough to be able to settle inside the house. Sissy is the typical happy Beagle who loves to get out and about, so she would love someone who likes to take walks or hikes. This will also help her keep her girlish figure. Free feeding is not a good idea with Beagles as they tend to over-eat, so no all-day access to food for Sissy. Sissy is spayed, microchipped, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. If you think Sissy would be a good match for your home, please being the adoption process by completing our adoption application on our website, www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Sissy, please contact lynette@furfunrescue.org or call 319-310-3120. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Chloe is probably a true all-American mutt. If we were pressed for a breed we would say she is a Black Lab mix. Chloe is 2 years old and weighs 46 pounds. She loves affection and will lean into you to be cuddled or have her belly rubbed. Chloe walks pretty well on a leash and is eager to explore new surroundings. She is doing great at house and crate training. Chloe came to us from a shelter in Kansas. She is a very sweet girl who is good with other dogs and cats. Chloe would be a great dog to take through an obedience class so she can bond with her new people while learning. She needs a forever home with a fenced yard so she can run ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-19-00448Rocco (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Puppy

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

    This beautiful Rottweiler is Rocco. He is 10 months old and weighs 80 pounds. Rocco has been through a basic obedience class and does pretty well at his commands. He is eager to please as soon as he understands what it is you want him to do. Rocco is a typical pup and alternates between playing and cuddling. He plays well with other dogs his size. Rocco hasn't been introduced to a cat yet so the jury's out. They will either be squeak toys or things to be ignored. Rocco requires a fenced yard to run and play safely. Rocco started his life being purchased from a breeder and then was owner surrendered to a shelter. He came to rescue from the ... (Read More)shelter. Many of the Rottweiler breed characteristics fit Rocco. He is good natured, obedient, and intelligent. Rocco plays very well with the Labrador Retrievers in his foster home. The labs do not understand why he does not want to play fetch with them. Rocco will run to the ball but isn't going to pick it up and bring it back to you. Rottweilers are herders, not retrievers. Mindless ball fetching is for labs, Rottweilers like a job to do. Rocco is house trained and crate trained. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. If you are interested in meeting Rocco, please start the adoption process by completing the adoption application on our website at www.furfunrescue.org. If you have any questions about Rocco, please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $250.

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    UPDATE ON PIPER: She went to the vet today and was not pregnant so she was spayed and had her teeth cleaned and is now ready to start looking for her forever home. Ms. Piper is about 4 years old and apparently she was historically used as a breeding dog. Someone got her off of a FB page and then decided that since it is believed she was pregnant that they were not equipped to deal with puppies and surrendered her to us. It is hard to tell if she is or is not pregnant. Since she has had other litters we would expect to see more signs that she is expecting but we will be taking her to the vet on Tuesday (2/21) to see if we can determine ... (Read More)if she is pregnant or not. If she is not she will be spayed and heartworm checked in order to get her ready to find a forever home. She is SUPER sweet, loves to give kisses and is definitely a people dog. It is unknown if she has ever been around kids. She is reported as good with other dogs and cats. She is housebroken and LOVES to cuddle. She is under 10 pounds so just a little girl. She may be small but she is full of energy. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    My name is Mary. Shortly after I was born someone cut off my ears and then dumped me in the trash. Then someone else found me and was turning me into the 700-dog high kill shelter when this lady named Phoebe rescued me. I could not walk and Phoebe thought that I was blind and deaf. That is the first time I knew love and cuddling. And you know what? I'm not blind or deaf and I can walk perfectly fine now. In fact I have a pretty little strutt on my walk that looks like one of my parents was a fancy horse! Everyone that sees me walks gets a smile on their face. Phoebe loves me but she needs to rescue others that are in danger like I was ... (Read More)so I REALLY need to find a home that will love me and take care of me forever. I promise to make you smile everyday and for you to say Mary Mary Quite Contrary! Phoebe named me Mary because I was so little and calm. Now, I have a little spice in me and I think the contrary part just makes me fun. I LOVE to snuggle and I know that I will be someone's best friend one day. Will you please find a spot in your heart for me? Text Phoebe at 319-471-0752. (Less)

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

    I am Mary and I am a special little girl (about 8 lbs). When I was days old someone cut off my ears and threw me away in the garbage. Someone else found me and was turning me into a 700-dog high-kill shelter. I could not even walk. That's when I was rescued. That is when I found out about love. I learned to snuggle, and now I'm even fiesty. I have a special walk--look like one of those fancy horses when I walk. No one knows why--they think that it's because my back legs don't really match my front legs ??? but it's not a problem at all for me. And vet says I'm all good--even if funny. I am not a year old yet and so I want to find that home ... (Read More)to call my own as soon as possible so I can snuggle with someone FOR SURE when I turn a year old which should be sometime in May or so. What do you say? Want to meet me? I will bring so much joy and happiness to you that you will not know how you were able to manange without me! Text Phoebe 319-471-0752 and tell her you want to meet Mary! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-19-00226Zeus (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We want you to meet Zeus. He is almost a year old and finds himself desperately needing the right home to love him and be nice to him. He came out of a not so nice situation off of a 'free Facebook site' and the people that took him a little over a month ago weren't prepared for the fact he didn't get along real well with their other two dogs. He was malnourished and looked very neglected. He was absolutely terrified when he first came in but is doing much better now and we are ready to get him neutered and ready for a furever home. He is a Pit Bull who is extremely submissive and appears to be constantly waiting for someone to hit him. He ... (Read More)has learned to trust James here at the shelter and isn't a bit afraid of him at this point in time. We were told he is housebroken, loves to play with his boys. He does have to be kenneled when not home as he still is a puppy and will chew and destroy things. He knows his basic commands like sit, no, lay down and stay. He loves car rides. He does fairly well on a leash. He is great with kids. Because of his background (both known and unknown) he may need to be an only dog. No history of him with cats. If you come and meet him he will show you just how loving a Pit is. Don't judge him by his looks, judge him by his compassion. He will be brought current on all shots, neutered, heartworm checked and micro-chipped and ready for a forever home by 2/23/17. Help Zeus find a home before his first birthday. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-18-00382Murphy (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    We want you to meet one very special boy. This is Murphy. He is almost 4 years old and is a East German Czech Shepherd. He did come in with his Pedigree papers if his adopter is interested in having a copy. He is solid black. Unfortunately he was owned by a breeder and was pretty neglected and unsocialized. He warms up slowly and is very loving. He does good with other dogs if introduced slowly and properly. He is neutered, current on all of his shots, has been wormed and is heartworm negative. He just needs a loving home that will show him what he has missed out on the first four years of his life. Based upon the situation he ... (Read More)has come from - he will not be adopted as a farm dog - he deserves a home, soft bed and LOTS of love and attention. One look into his eyes and you can see how much he is craving to be loved. To our knowledge he has never lived with kids. He is a good sized boy at about 80 pounds. He does know how to use a doggie door. If you are interested in this beautiful boy and can offer him the love he deserves, please fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-17-00516Cooper (male)

Treeing Walker Coonhound    Age: Young Adult

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

    Cooper's owners in Greene, Iowa, could no longer keep him. They decided it would be wonderful if he could go to our rescue and find a forever home. So Cooper is now a WPR dog. He is now up to date on shots, tested heartworm negative, and neutered. Cooper is living in a foster home. Cooper is about 2-years-old. He is good with other dogs and he really enjoys playing with other dogs. He also likes to fetch balls. He does OK with cats and kittens in his foster home, but he shouldn't be left alone with them until your absolutely sure he's comfortable with them. He shows some prey instinct towards the cats when they run or hiss at him, but if ... (Read More)they are comfortable and calm with him, he is friendly to them. He also has a bit of food and toy defensive aggression with cats and dogs. This his first time for him having normal indoor living on a regular basis. He is nervous and barks a lot, but that should calm down in a couple days once he settles in. He is a wonderful boy, very friendly. Foster home will work on the inside dog training he needs. He is smart and learning quickly. He will probably need continued training in an adoptive home, so an experienced dog owner will be best. Might even be a good idea if you already have a dog, that will make him more comfortable to have a dog friend plus your dog can help him with the training. Also, because of his breed a fenced in yard is required. That way he can explore and sniff around all he wants but stay safe at the same time. We will update his profile as we get to know him, and with his progress in his foster home. 1/6/17 UPDATE: Day 2 in his foster home! Things are going well.. The Barking/Howling/Baying is getting much better. Cooper and our dog Indy have been playing quite a bit today. He does OK in a crate, He enjoys exploring the fenced in back yard, and doesn't show any interest in trying to get out or jump over it. He has been spending most of his time playing with Indy, following us around the house and sleeping on the couch. 1/8/17 UPDATE: In the home: When we picked up Cooper, there was a claim that he would need some work with potty training. So far, everything has been fine. He continues to do better with the cats, and plays a lot with our dog Indy. Pet Store Event Cooper attended yesterday: We took Cooper down to Pet Supplies Plus for the Grand Opening. He was able to get everyone's attention with his baying/bark. He was friendly to everyone.. including kids. He was good with the other dogs he interacted with as well. 1/10/17 UPDATE: Cooper is continuing to so well.. he's mostly healed from his neutering so hopefully the cone can come off in the next couple days. The more he gets comfortable with us, the less he barks.. Still iffy with the cats.. but making good progress. He's a very sweet and loving dog, he loves to play, and it's unfortunate that the weather makes it tough to play in the back yard. I'm starting to think he would serve well as a home guard dog. He isn't set off by every little noise, but if he hears some thing unusual, he's on top of it! 1/20/17 UPDATE: At the 2 week mark, Cooper is doing very well. Barking is normal, no issues with potty training. Living a normal happy dog life. Even getting along with the cats. Will someone please adopt Cooper and give him a forever home? $150.00 adoption fee.

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-17-00480Olaf (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Olaf is a BIG (70 lb) 9 month old male English Cr%BD%BDme Goldendoodle who's had major health issues and some behavioral challenges. He's been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and serious allergies, so his environment and food must be carefully controlled, and he needs good and frequent veterinary care. He also must take steroid medication and can only eat a specialized food (and no other treats) or he becomes very ill. He loves to be outside, yet he can't be left outside unattended since he'll chew on weeds and rocks that could make him ill. So... he's been primarily an inside dog. He LOVES to be with people, including ... (Read More)children, and wants to be right at their side, yet he plays very rough so is prone to unintentionally hurt young children or smaller dogs when he's excited. It's probably best if his new family doesn't have small children (maybe under age 8-9 year olds?) since he's likely knock them over when he's playing. He's a high energy and at times anxious dog who needs an owner who will take him for walks or throw the ball outside at LEAST 2x a day to allow him to play hard and expend his energy or his anxiety and behaviors will increase. He needs a new owner who's able to financially afford his medical care, special food, and medicine and be committed to continuing to work on behaviors. He's had some basic obedience training and is currently in intermediate obedience training, so he's has a start but he's inconsistent in following commands and needs an owner who will continue to work with this training. He's often a sweet boy but can also be a bit strong-willed. He's partially housebroken but has occasional urinary accidents, especially if we're not watching for his subtle cues or if he's excited. Though Goldendoodles are supposed to be no or low-shed, Olaf is a VERY heavy shedder. We love this big boy who's truly a BEAUTIFUL dog, but we just can't keep up with his needs anymore. If you have the time and resources to invest in Olaf, please call for more information. (Less)

    Sadie is a 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix. There is another breed in there that gives her a stocky build, it could be Pug or something else. Sadie is good natured and intelligent.

    Havana was found roaming the streets of 'little Havana' in Miami Florida. She was abandoned, having already had puppies (no where to be found) hungry and thirsty. Several men where hitting her to get her to go away--as she was seeking food and refuge with them. She is playful and loving. She gets along with most dogs and all humans. We are taking her to trainin classes to make sure that she learns the best behavior possible since due to her breed, we don't want her to get a bad-rap. We suggest she goes to a home with children 12 and older--just because she might knock over younger ones. She is about 50-60lbs--so not very large. But she ... (Read More)is a BEAUTY.

Great Pyrenees Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Deaf 

    Gracie is a really sweet young pup, about 9-10 months old. We live in the country and she has the run of the complete property and never leaves. She will try to jump on you only because she loves people. We have had her since a young 5 week old puppy but did not realize she was deaf till she was about 6 months old. This is the reason we need to find a new home for her since she is deaf and I'm afraid she will get run over by a vehicle since she is not fenced in. We can only have an outside dog and fencing is not an option. I recently had major surgery and have not been able to work on training her. She is quite smart but needs someone ... (Read More)who has the time to work with her. She has never hurt any of our three cats but sometimes will chase them because she wants to play. She has never been around any other dogs. She loves kids but you need to be careful around small children because she can knock them down only because she is so big. Never bites or nips and seldom barks. Loves to chew on toys and sticks. I have taught her with hand commands to sit and shake my hand. Gracie will ride on the golf cart all around with you. If my husband is outside working, cutting trees, trimming weeds or anything else Gracie is right by his side. As soon as she sees the 4x4 ATV moving she is in a full run to catch up and follow. She will spend the whole time with him. I hate to see her go but need to find a good home outside. I'm not sure if she would like to be an indoors dog. She loves the cold and winter, loves to run and slide when there is ice, and sleeps in the garage at night with the cats. (Less)

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

    Tripp is an 18 month old 45 pound mutt. We say mutt with lots of love. Tripp is a great little boy and probably has many different breeds mixed in him. Some of our guesses have been Terrier, Pug, Min Pin, Shepherd, and Basenji. He has some of the characteristics of all of these breeds. Tripp loves to run and play and will need a fenced yard so he can get enough exercise. He would love an active family to play fetch with and go on walks with. Tripp's foster home has three other dogs, he is the smallest. Tripp is happy to play with anyone who will play with him. Tripp came into rescue as an owner surrender. His owner got him off Craig's ... (Read More)List and was told he was good with cats. In reality Tripp likes to chase cats and probably thinks they are self-propelled squeaky toys. We don't think he would harm a cat but he is very curious about them. Tripp is potty trained, up to date on vaccinations, neutered and micro chipped.' All he needs is a family to call his own. If you would like to meet Tripp, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-22-00425Caitlyn (female)

Siberian Husky 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 

    Caitlyn is more outgoing that her sister, Calista, but prefers to stay closer to home. She would do well in an active family with a fenced in yard as she's not so excited about losing sight of her house right now. Caitlyn is working hard at potty training and is still reluctant to walk far while on a leash, but it determined to learn more every day. She loves everyone and everything and is super social. Caitlyn's perfect evening involves chewing on a toy while laying on her human's feet after a nice rowdy romp outside. She is a beautiful puppy with very unique eyes. We got a second update from her foster and in the spirit of full disclosure ... (Read More)we wanted to share it: Caitlyn is going to be a difficult (and destructive) puppy. I'm not being mean. I had a difficult puppy who grew up into a very good dog. Whoever adopts Caitlyn will have a rough year ahead of them, but I know that with some determination and patience, Caitlyn will grow into a wonderful dog. She will need A LOT of mental stimulation and exercise. I also recommend training with sign language, which sounds strange, but I have found that the increased likelihood of successful communication with a strong willed dog decreases the barking and headaches. As Caitlyn does and will have a lot of opinions, 'Show me what you want' is going to be a very valuable command and seems to work better with visuals. Caitlyn will also need to be socialized heavily and continually to insure she stays appropriate with other animals and children. As potty training goes, both Caitlyn and Calista are firmly sticking to the 5 second rule. If you don't respond in 5 seconds, you are going to have a puddle to clean up. I did keep them in an indoor kennel overnight and while I was at work. They only slept all the way through the night once. I usually got up once or twice with them to take them out. I do sleep a lot, so someone with a more typical sleeping pattern will probably do fine. During the day, I came home on my lunch break to let them out. They did relatively well pooping outside and never pooped in their kennel. Caitlyn will not come inside voluntarily until she has done her business. (Less)

    Sammy is a mixed breed dog at just a year and a half old. We have no clue what he is mixed with. He is very fearful and will require a soft hand to get him to come out of his shell.

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

    Roscoe found himself in not so good of a place when his owner surrendered him to a shetler that can't hang onto dogs for very long. He was surrendered because he nipped at the kids when they pulled his tail - well yeah - that is understandable. Teach the kids respect not dump the dog. He has to be introduced to other dogs slowly but once he trusts them he does amazing. He is currently roommates with Rosie and they do amazing together. He takes a little while (like two minutes) to warm up but when he does he is a sweetheart. He loves his toys and plaing fetch. He does not do well with cats. He would probably be best with kids over ... (Read More)the age of 10 so they will be a little more respectful. He is about 18 months old. He certain appears to be fully housebroken as he has not had one accident since he has been here. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    This is Tripp. He will be 4 months old on 1/9/17. He is a very energetic puppy. A DNA test was done on him and he is 37.5% Border Collie, 13.5% Boxer and 13.5% Heeler - the balance is 'mixed' enough to not be distinctive. Very smart puppy but desperately needs a high energy home to get cracking on teaching him his basic manners. He does know 'sit' but thinks it should always be accompanied by a treat. He is great with other dogs and plays rough. He is going to be a good sized boy when he is done growing. He might be a little too high of energy for a cat. Kids above 8 would probably be best because of his energy level and the fact he is ... (Read More)still a very mouthy puppy. What you see in the picture for his ears is the way they are all the time. That isn't a pose for the picture - that is how they look all the time. Makes him a very distinct character. Tripp's adoption fee is $225.00. He is neutered, current on his shots and has been micro-chipped. If you are interested in Tripp please complete an adoption application on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

Pomeranian    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Arthritis,
 Abused/Neglected, Aggressive 

    Coco (to the right of the picture) is 6 years old and is very loving. He is such a good dog. Unfortunately I had to leave home and couldn't take the two with me and they have been neglected. Their days consist of sitting in a cage all day long and long enough to go to the bathroom outdoors, and I can't go on knowing what it's like for them there. He likes to lift his leg alot and that was an issue we didn't really know how to address. He can be grumpy and try to nip at times but he's never full force bit down on anyone to my knowledge. He doesn't like his back legs to be touched, and when he knows he's in trouble he can be aggressive but ... (Read More)like I said never has bit someone. Coco has always seemed uneasy to new males that enter the house, but attaches to women very well. As for children I'm not too sure. He plays but he's so used to being kenneled I'm not sure he even knows what to do outside of it. Im going to post another ad on here as well for Annabella, cocos brother and sister had her and they are best friends and have been together every second. I really want them to go together if possible. I know they will already be freaked out leaving and I can't imagine going alone. So please if interested in either consider that. They both I'm sure will require alot of attention and patients in the begining... but they need a good home asap. Thank you and im open to any questions. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max, aka Mystery Max! My foster family wasn't sure what breeds I'm made up of (I prefer to just be a lap dog, but apparently that isn't an official breed). They put a swab in my mouth and mailed it to someone who looked at my slobber. They said I'm a designer dog! 50% GSD and 50% Treeing Walker Coonhound. Here is my report: http://rv.wisdompanel.com/dnareport/fX6Fn8j4taCLy2uZ3KBxJeGrL5oZ1jDARNaZJ-7_Yg4W_U2BKJb_A0xyOAWQvKcW#/ancestry/DDwY7OKPg48OEGEaCSYqy I do love sitting on my foster dad's lap (even though I weigh 95 pounds), but outside I'm an active boy with lots of energy to burn. I'm cool with car rides so ... (Read More)maybe you can take me to the park for a run! I like to play really RUFF with my doggy friends so I would do best in a home with other young, high energy dogs that don't mind my style of play. (I'd be ok as an only dog too - more lap space for me!) I get along well with the other dominant-neutral dogs that are my size in my foster home, however, I don't do well with small breeds. Annnddd I love to bark at and chase cats, hehe! After play time, I LOVE snuggling and getting attention from my people I know the basic commands but would like a family who could continue my training. I walk well on a leash with a little pull. I probably need to be crated during the day so that I don't get into anything while you are gone. I do pretty good in my crate but will make a fuss sometimes. Having other dogs around seems to help me stay a bit calmer though! Because I am such a tall guy and an excellent jumper, I will need a home with a secure 5-6 foot fence so I don't accidentally get lost. I have been known to sneak under a chain link fence before so a wood fence or very secure chain link fence is super important! My adoption fee is $200. Visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application and learn more about our adoption process. Our dogs are all fostered in volunteer homes. Meets and greets are only available by appointment after the application has been processed. All of our dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, friends! My name is Buddy! I'm a sweet two-ish year old boy and they think I'm a German Shepherd / Labrador mix! I say I'm purebred handsome! I used to live on the street, but then I got picked up for loitering (I guess dogs can't just hang out wherever they want.) and was taken to the shelter. Someone went to bat for me and made some phone calls to GSDRI and eventually I made my way to a foster home! Jackpot! I'm a bit skittish of new people and my new family will need to be really patient with me as I get to know my environment and people. I love my foster mom to bits though! I would prefer no children under 12 years old because I ... (Read More)really need humans who are able to respect my space and my need to 'take it slow,' as the humans say. But I did just attend a public event and while things were a bit scary sometimes, I did really great! I love other dogs and did great at the dog park, so I would do great with another playful dog in my home. In fact, it might help me come out of my shell more and learn how to be a family dog. Bossy dogs who don't respect my space probably wouldn't be good though because I get scared of those sorts of things. I do love my foster doggy brother right now! He's a German Shepherd, but I've also been around a smaller dog and did just fine. (At least, I think it was a dog. It smelled like a dog, just smaller. BOL!) I really love human food. Like'|.so much love for it. (I'm sure some of you can relate.) If you leave it where I can get it, you best not turn your back or be too far away because I was snatch it and eat it! It's a pretty easy fix though, if I can't get to it, I won't eat it. Housetraining has proven to be a bit difficult for me. I will need a regular food and pottying routine to help me get on track to understanding what you want from me. I have no doubt that once we are speaking the same language, I will be able to do exactly as you'd like! I'm a smart boy! I'll need a fence for sure. My middle name is Explorer. Hehe My current foster home has a 4' fence and sometimes I jump it. (They're working on making it more secure. Drat.) So far I haven't run away, but I might explore if I get the chance. I don't always jump it and it isn't high on my list of priorities, but sometimes get bored with the smells in my yard (I mean, I smell them so many times a day, right?!) and go to see if there are other smells. There are. I do love my walks! I am a good goodly walker and will walk right by your side! Now, sometimes I alert you to things. I may need you to show me what you do and do not want me to alert to because the things I think are important may not be the things you think are important. I do find that happens with humans. If you're interested me in, the contact information can be found below!!! Until then, I'll be hanging out with my foster family! ********** Visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application and learn more about our adoption process.

    A Well's Fargo volunteer came in a couple days ago and commented on how much progress Alice has made and she is right! Alice has come a long way. No secret that she still has a ways to go.

    Sonny is a sweet and loving little guy. He is a 9 pound tan and white Chihuahua mix who is 3-4 years old. Sonny is a little skittish when he first meets new people. He needs time to warm up, but in time he will be curled up in your lap. Sonny came to us with another 5 Chihuahua's who were all rescued from a hoarding situation. There were many others taken from this house as well. The dogs were well treated, there were just too many of them for the people to handle and properly care for. Sonny is not used to being on a leash so he needs a fenced yard until he is more comfortable on a leash. All Sonny needs is some love and a ... (Read More)warm lap. He would prefer a quiet home with some patient people who will give him the time he needs to trust them and feel comfortable in his new home. Your loving patience will be rewarded with a lifelong buddy. Sonny is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and heartworm tested. Sonny is housetrained. He is used to being crated when his people are away.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    We want to introduce you to one very special dog - his name is Jake. Jake has a horrible story to tell and the people who owned him should be ashamed of themselves and should NEVER EVER be able to own even a stuffed animal in the future. This boy is 11 - he is HW positive and not strong enough for heavy treatment. He has lived his entire life tied up in a filthy dirty location with only a falling down shed for shelter and tied up on a freaking chain. He had the chain on for so many years that he had open raw sores around his neck. Additionally he was so thin you could count all of his ribs. Well that ended on Tuesday when he came to us. He ... (Read More)can not be officially adopted - he is 11 years old and not neutered and with his heartworm he can't undergo the neuter surgery - he additionally isn't in good enough health to undergo heavy treatment. He will be, more likely than not, living out whatever time he has left here on this earth (that has been so misereable for him) with us here at Patriots for Pets or in a hospice foster. If we don't find the right hospice foster for him then he will be going home with our Rescue Coordinator. We can't promise him lush surroundings, We can't promise him extremely expensive toys - but damn it we can promise him love and NEVER A CHAIN around his neck again, never stuck outside in the heat and cold and NEVER going to sleep with his belly growling because his stinking human forgot to feed him. If you think you could show this boy the love and attention he so deserves get in touch with us and we can discuss it - Patriot's will be covering the cost of his ongoing 'soft' heartworm treatment and whatever other medical care he may need to assure he is taken care of for the rest of his life - no matter if that is a week, a month, a year or more. We promised to love Jake and we know you all will love him to if you come out to meet him. Keep Jake in your prayers - he needs them and he needs your support - and he deserves to know that humans aren't all bad. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Here is what Bailey's foster mom had to say about her: She's one of the most loving dogs i have had. She loves to cuddle , thinks she's a lap dog at times. Gets along great with dogs , could careless about cats. When she's happy her butt never stops moving . She is just a very loving girl that needs a loving home. My favorite thing about her is she snorts and grunts like a pig when she's really happy. She is house broken, she'll come to you and pace . That's her telling you she needs to go potty. She walks well on a leash. She also knows her simple commands. She loves being called Bailey Boo

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

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

    Socks is a three year old Rottweiler. He is still very energetic. He is housebroken and gets along well with other dogs. He is terrified of cats. He does take a little while to warm up with humans so he has to be introduced properly. If he likes you it is pure love. If not then he is very stand offish. He does have a history of having issues with one child (probably about 12) but we seriously question what was being done to the dog as we see no temperament issues with him and children. He is a little testy when he is eating or chewing on a bone. If he is in a home with another dog he would need to be fed separately and not be ... (Read More)given bones. He has no issue sharing toys. Because of his history he needs to go to an experienced Rottie (or similar breed) owner who can work with him and not allow him to be the dominant in the home.

Schipperke Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Hansel is a beautiful senior boy. Best guess is that he is a Schipperke. He is about 11 years old. He is currently with Linda Heyden for foster and has settled in very well. He gets along with all of her dogs and doesn't seem to have any issues with cats. He is not a very big boy - only about 25 pounds. He is housebroken for the most part but will mark if another dog has gone potty inside. He is crate and leash trained. He is a little stiff when he first start moving for the day but is managing to keep up with Linda's active dogs. In the past it was reported that he had 'stress seizures' when he would get really stressed out but he had ... (Read More)none transitioning to us/Linda. He was a little afraid the first day but by the end of the day he was all about belly rubs and sitting on your lap on the couch. He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. He would be an excellent companion for an older person who spends lots of time sitting around and willing to give belly rubs. A couple of good walks a day and he will be one happy camper. Hansel is out in a foster home and if you are interested in him an appointment would need to be set up to meet him. (Less)

Family has brought their dog(crescent-poodle cross) and Delia tried to attack it. Delia is very good with kids(4and2) and loves people. I just can not keep her because of her tendency to be dog aggressive.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-31-00247Samuel (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Samuel. He has been adopted by us, twice, and both times returned for being destructive. Apparently he has separation anxiety and when no one is around he destroys all kinds of things. His latest home thinks he should be an only dog but we disagree - he got along well with their dog except at feeding time. We believe he needs a high energy playmate. He is 4 going on one and has all of the energy of a puppy. He will eat the tray in a kennel, he will bend metal in a crate and he will drool excessively if left in a kennel for too long. None of this is occurring at the shelter. He is fine in his kennel here. He isn't destructive ... (Read More)with his toys or his blanket here. He is an escape artist, however, he can get over a 6 foot chain link fence faster than you can snap your fingers. Sam behaves very well when someone is home with him - it's only when he is left alone that the problems surface. We won't even go into the list of things that have been reported that he has destroyed. He needs a home where someone is home 95% of the time. We see no reason short periods of time in a kennel will be harmful even though he doesn't care for it. If kenneling him is done slowly we believe he can be worked out of his separation anxiety. This will take LOTS of time and certainly won't be happening overnight. If there is another dog in the house it needs to be a dog bigger than him - so something over 35 pounds would be idea. He can be an only dog but may require more attention and much more exercise We will let any potential adopter read the letter from the prior adopter - it is a full page with only 3 sentences of positive - the balance is all about his bad behavior. He is housebroken but will require supervision when outside as he will escape if at all possible. Samuel will be a challenge for any adopter. This will not be a situation where he will settle in easily with no issues. We will be looking for that 'special' someone to adopt him. He has issues but doesn't deserve to be put down or live his life in the shelter. Samuel is a pretty small kid at about 33 pounds. His breed is anyone's guess. He looks a little Cocker in the face but that is all we see for a Cocker. He may have some Border Collie in him. It doesn't make much difference what he is - the one thing we know for sure is that he ALWAYS has a smile on his face. He does great with kids - except chewing up anything left unattended on the floor. If you are the special home that Samuel needs (or if you know of someone who is) please get in touch with us.

    Morgan is a sweet loving 4yr old boy looking for a family with older kids or adults to love.

Unfortunately due to my work schedule I am unable to provide the time he needs and deserves.

We have small kids and he is beginning to make me nervous around them If he gets in a grumpy spell he pays no attention to who is around. I know he would do someone real well as a protector that doesn't have small kids to worry about.

Black and Tan Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max! I am a 2.5 year old German Shepherd and probably some sort of Hound mix. I'm an active boy with lots of energy to burn so I need a family that will give me a lot of exercise. I'm cool with car rides so maybe you can take me to the park for a run! I like to play really RUFF with my doggy friends so I would do best in a home with other young, high energy dogs that don't mind my style of play. (I'd be ok as an only dog too.) I get along well with the other dominant-neutral dogs that are my size in my foster home, however, I don't do well with small breeds. Annnddd I'm pretty reactive to cats so a home without cats ... (Read More)would be best, hehe! I weigh about 95lbs now but could stand to gain some additional weight so I might knock little kids over. I like balls, and if you tire me out enough, I will relax and cuddle up next to you. I LOVE snuggling and getting attention from my people. I know the basic commands but would like a family who could continue my training. I walk well on a leash with a little pull. I do pretty good in my crate but will make a fuss sometimes. I have some nervous energy which can be displayed when I'm in my crate. Because of this, I probably need to be crated during the day so that I don't get into anything while you are gone. Having other dogs around seems to help me stay a bit calmer though! Because I am such a tall guy and an excellent jumper, I will need a home with a secure 5-6 foot fence. I have been known to sneak under a chain link fence before so a wood fence or very secure chain link fence is super important! I tend to bark at noises outside like thunder, fireworks, etc. so hopefully your neighbors won't mind - woops! :) Do I sound like the beset fit ever for you?! Please visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application, learn more about the adoption process and fees, and view other dogs available through the German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Iowa. All GSDRI's dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. A fence is strongly encouraged. Every dog is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm checked. (Less)

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!
