Rescue Me ID: 15-09-03-00741Floyd (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    This is Floyd. He is a Shih Tzu who is about 6 years old. He has an umbilical hernia that required surgery and that has been performed. He got his teeth cleaned, which he needed desperately, and the rest of his vetting done and now what he needs is a home that will show him lots of love and teach him all of the things you would teach a new puppy. He now wants to play and loves attention so be prepared for an active little guy.

Poodle    Age: Adult

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

    Belinda is looking for her forever home. She is a toy poodle who is about 6 years old. She has come so far in just a week. We have pictures of her laying her head in Brenda's lap all cuddled up. She follows Brenda everywhere she goes in the building. We have no doubt now that she knows what is like to be loved she will continue to demand that human companionship -which is as it should be. If you have lots of love to give, want a cuddle buddy and have patience this girl might be for you.

Rescue Me ID: 15-09-03-00712Arnold (male)

Pomeranian Mix    Age: Adult

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

    This terrific guy is Arnold. Best guess is he is a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix. He was in pretty pathetic shape and we had to remove a tumor from his rear in addition to his neuter. His teeth were filthy (not any more) and he was terrified. Results on tumor show it was not malignant (great news). He has discovered like he likes to be a lap dog and is perfectly content sitting on your lap. He was a major snuggler with the grooming team. If you are sitting now he believes he should be on your lap. His eyes just melt your heart. He is about 8 years old and so deserves to spend the rest of his life in luxury. He will need a fairly quiet ... (Read More)environment as he does spook easily. Someone who can give him unconditional love and patience is needed. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    I am Doris. I am about 5 years old and I am a Shih Tzu. I am all done with the vetting. I have had babies in the past but not any more. I am a friendly little girl now that I have had some exposure to people loving on me. From a filthy dirty girl who no one cared enough about to feed to a clean, cute, happy, vetted dog all in one week. What more can a girl ask for? I will readily forget about my past if someone is willing to teach me all the things I don't know - you have to remember everything is going to be foreign to me so someone has to be patient and make a commitment to teaching me - lovingly - the things I don't know.

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

    Deidra says: I really thought it was going to suck being the new girl at the rescue but it hasn't been so bad. I've made some friends and am doing okay. I still miss my family but they did what was best for me and I understand that. Still miss them though. I like that I don't have to live in a kennel. One of my new friends said that as long as I don't fight with the other dogs, I can run and play as I please. I like that a lot! Deidra has been very good with us. She has a bite history with children so she will not be allowed to go to a home with children. She connects to her people and is very loyal and protective. Deidra is housetrained and ...

Poodle    Age: Adult

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

    This adorable little guy is Gomer. He is about 7 years old and has become super outgoing. He just wants to follow you around everywhere. Without all of that nasty coat on him he feels so much better. We had him neutered and he had to have 3 teeth pulled that were rotten. When the vet went to pull the teeth he noticed that his jaw was broken. We have been informed this is not uncommon for poodles when they get rotten teeth. He will be going into Brookview Animal Hospital tomorrow to have the jaw examined to determine if it requires surgery. Gomer is a Toy Poodle who is about 7 years old.

George is a happy guy who loves people and gets along with other dogs. Because George is a bit of a klutzy moose is would be better if his forever home didn't have small children. Like so many dogs, George finds himself needing a new home because of inappropriate human behavior and not due to any ... (Read More)fault of George's.

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    Precious is an adorable little 14 pound Shih Tzu who came into rescue because she was removed from her home in an animal cruelty/neglect case. She was held at the shelter as evidence until the court case was completed and then was released to rescue. The vets estimate her age between 9 and 10. Precious will be a cutie as soon as her fur grows back in. She had to be shaved to the skin because she was so matted. Precious is an easy girl. She likes to lay next to her people on the couch and loves to have her tummy rubbed and under her chin scratched. When she needs to go outside she barks to let you know. Sometimes Precious will bark to ... (Read More)tell you to pick her up and put her on the couch beside you even though she can jump up on her own. She is good at people training. Precious does well with other dogs and cats. She deserves a forever home where she will be safe and loved. Precious is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped and housetrained.

Dachshund    Age: Puppy

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

    My name is Barney and I am the sweetest little Dachshund you will ever meet. I'm just 20 months old and tip the scales at 20 pounds. My foster mom tells me I'm a good boy. I do have a lot of puppy energy and love to run and play. I jump on and off the couch to cuddle with my people but I'm not a fan of long flights of stairs. I came to Fur Fun Rescue because I was purchased as a gift for an 85 year old and I was too much for her to handle. What were they thinking? I'm a puppy! I like other dogs and cats but I love my people. I'll happily follow you all over because I am interested in everything you do. I come running when you call me and ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-31-00679Blaire (female)

Bichon Frise    Age: Young Adult

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

    This little girl is Blaire. She is still afraid of being touched but she is tolerating it without putting up a fuss. You just want to take her and squeeze her and promise her the rest of her life will be wonderful and she will never again have to endure being dirty, full of stickers and ignored. It's what we want for all of them but this little one is just begging for that with her eyes. She doesn't know it yet - but we will find her just the right individual to work with her slowly to help her learn to trust. She does have an infection in her teats and we are treating that. She will get a bunch of her vetting out of the way tomorrow ... (Read More)and then hopefully she can relax and enjoy some loving. We estimate she is probably the youngest of the Bichons but we will confirm that tomorrow with the vet. Anyone interested in this little lover needs to remember that she has probably never been a 'house pet' and therefore will have to learn everything that an 8 week old puppy learns and it will have to be taught with a gentle loving hand and TONS AND TONS of patience. A fairly quiet adult only home would be great for her with someone who is willing to give her the time she will need to adjust and trust. (Less)

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

Bichon Frise    Age: Adult

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

    This is VanPelt. He was in deplorable condition when he got here. He was filthy, matted and had sores from all of the stickers in him. He lost about half of his weight with his initial shave on Saturday. He has been stuck in a little tiny cage living in filthy conditions and is terrified of humans. He has bit a few times in the past few days but we know it is fear. It has been suggested if we can't find someone who is familiar with mill dogs and how long they take to rehabilitate that we should consider calling in Bichon Rescue for this guy. We are going to go ahead and get all of his vetting work done and give him a chance to settle ... (Read More)in for a few days after we stop poking, probing and shaving him and see if he will settle down a little and start to tolerate being touched. Adopting a puppy mill dog is LOTS OF WORK. For anyone who believes it will be easy - please don't apply to adopt one of these kids - we assure you it is not easy and after you give lots of love and patience - you need to do it all over again - and again - and again. We are estimating he is about 6 years old (give or take a year) He would probably benefit from being in a home with another dog who is very confident so he can learn confidence from the other dog. To our knowledge he has never lived in a home. If you crate him he does go to the bathroom in it so we are confident he has never been housebroken. He is so used to living in his own waste that doing it in the kennel he is in does not seem unnatural to him. (Less)

Bichon Frise    Age: Young Adult

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

    Ms. China is all cleaned up and looking pretty darn great after her second spa day at Mary Kay's Grooming Station today. Tomorrow is her day to go to the vet and get all of her medical stuff taken care of. Keep your fingers crossed that all checks out well with her. She is eating well and is adjusting to live outside of a small cage pretty well. She is bouncing back very well from her ordeal in a filthy cage environment. She is still a little afraid but that will get better with time and lots of love. China is a Bichon and the best guess is she is under 5 years old. .

Papillon    Age: Young Adult

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

    I came in a week ago as a stray and no one ever came for me so now PFP will get me ready for adoption. I have been named Elvis (because I know how to strut my stuff). I am about 3 years old. I am a pretty good boy - other than the fact that I bark a lot - I am housebroken and really good with everyone - I don't think I have ever met a stranger. I do like to bark at the cats but haven't been given the chance to play with them. I don't really have problems with other dogs but if you have one I would need to meet it before you can adopt me. I will be neutered and get all of my shots before I go home and I will get a microchip inserted ... (Read More)before then too but I will be ready to go home by September 5th. My adoption fee will be $175.00 and you will want to get your adoption application submitted as I don't plan on sticking around very long. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-29-00469Scout (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Adult

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

    This big guy is Scout. He was on the property in Woden where we got all of the small dogs. He was living penned up in weeds over 6 feet tall. He is in remarkably good shape and loves people. A little bit of food on Thursday and he was our best friend. On Friday when we actually removed him he was more than willing to go along and jumped right up into the van on his freedom ride. We are estimating he is about 5 years old. He probably has some Rottweiler in him but is much taller than a Rottie - so something else in there is giving him his height. His eyes look like he is an old soul. We assure you he is a major lover and no doubt will be ... (Read More)so very thankful for a family to rescue him and show him love. He will be ready to go to his new home by late next week. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-28-00680Tucker (male)

Siberian Husky Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tucker is approximately 2 years old and is looking for a home with older kids or no kids. He needs a dominant person to set the rules and doesn't like to kennel at all due to a bad past experience with them. He is house trained, but is a little food aggressive, so will need to be fed separate. He likes to get his exercise and we think being a routine would be best. If you think you have a great home for Tucker, you can apply for him at www.adoptdiamonds.org

    Hello, this is Trooper. He is almost 7 years old. He is a very cute dog, weighing about 7.5 lbs, but very strange. His hair is a liver color when it's longer but soon, after a groom, is very light tan and white. One of his eyes had to be removed from a previous infection. He enjoys to sleep a lot and walk. He does not beg at all, rarely barks and is mostly potty trained to pee pad. Please call if you're serious about adoption due to our new schedule and growing kids we are unable to give him the time he NEEDS.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    My boy Cedar has raised Titan from the time he was just 8 weeks old (he turns 1 on Sept 6, 2015). He is good with large dogs, and his own pack (we have a small terrier, a heeler, and 2 cats). He occasionally has issues with other dogs if they are aggressive, but mainly he just likes to run and play tag. He is great with people and has been socialized a tonne. He is a tad protective and might bark a bit when a new person comes over, but adjusts once they are welcomed into our home. He has never, ever had accidents in the house. Our son was diligent at potty training him immediately and he was a natural. He plays fetch, frisby, soccer, ... (Read More)and loves obstacle courses. He is an incredible dog. The only reason we are relocating him is because our son has decided to go to high school this year. Titan will not do as well in the home by himself all day and we don't have an appropriate outdoor space for him to be. He is a loving, gentle, attentive and obedient dog. In the event that things did not work, we would take him back in a heartbeat and would hope to be updated, especially during the transition period. Our son is devastated to give him up, but he wants Titan to be in a situation that is better for him. (Less)

    Introducing Mel. He is about 7 months old and is a Shepherd Mix. The 'mix' is a big question mark. He is a pretty tall boy. He gets along with kids and adults. He takes a couple of minutes to warm up but if you are willing to pet him then he is willing to be your friend. He did get along with other dogs apparently but hasn't been around other dogs in a few months so we will have to work with that to make sure. He has never been around cats. He has lived with both five year olds and one year olds so he is good with kids. It is reported that he is housebroken. He settled right in here with no issues. Likes playing through the ... (Read More)fences with the other dogs. Gets excited when people talk to him. He does know how to sit when told but no other commands have been taught to him. He will need leash training.

    We want you to meet Scooby. He is almost a year old. He has not had an easy life - apparently he has been tossed around quite a bit from home to home and it shows by his lack of training at this age. He just wants attention and love and is severely craving them both. He does appear to be housebroken. He is good with other dogs and good with kids - we are not yet sure about cats. Now the million dollar question - what breed is he? From what we were told, and we are not sure we believe it, he is Lab/Dachshund mix. He has the coloring for a lab and does have a few streaks of brown in him but he is too long legged for Dachshund. Although he is ... (Read More)a fairly small kid.

He is a very loving dog, but prefers one adult at a time. He loves to sit in anyone's lap, including strangers. He is not good with children and because we now have baby grandchildren at our home, we cannot keep him. He would be a great companion for an older person who does not have children. He is a great guard dog and would warn if he heard things outside. We have found him to be somewhat incontinent and he has worn a diaper for several years. He could be kept in an apartment or by someone who ... (Read More)works, as he wears his 'pants' and would not wet in the house.

    This is Hooch. This adorable guy was afraid of the world when he came to us. He has the cutest little squeak bark. He is becoming more and more social as time goes on. We are pretty sure he was used as a bait dog. He's a big baby and would love to be able to run and play again. Won't you show this guy that life can be good again? Show him that there is more to life than what he has seen so far? Come meet this cutie.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-23-00472Tess (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Blind, Abused/Neglected 

    VERY LOVING & HEROIC DOG NEEDS HOME Tess was found wandering lose in a rural Eastern Iowa county; very recently shot with buckshot and blind as a result, she was in pain, hungry, and confused. A foster organization helped Tess receive medical care, spaying, etc.; though she is trained and appears to have once had a home, no one came forward to claim her,. Our guess is that she was abandoned, then shot at as she tried to find food. Tess is a pit bull and about two years old; despite what she has been through, is completely full of heart. Though unable to see, she gets around easily and well, happily backing up when something blocks her way; ... (Read More)it doesn't seem to throw her at all. She loves to run and has gone with her first foster mother to a family farm where she ran joyfully off leash, always returning when called. Though loving to run, she doesn't, however, seem to need to run in the way that some dogs do; if she doesn't get to, well that's cool too - in other words, Tess isn't even remotely demanding. In fact, if not in a yard taking in the scents, she prefers two specific activities: cuddling and napping. She is exceptionally gifted at both. Tess is also: kind, intuitive, loving, responsive, curious, trusting, intelligent, strong, undemanding, strong, beautiful, resilient, and very, very sweet. She doesn't really seem to have any quirks or oddities. Tess shows absolutely no hesitation or wariness in relation to humans. She is clearly happy to give our species another chance. She is in a second foster home for the next two weeks because the first foster mother left on vacation. She has taken to it easily and well. In her first foster home, Tess did show some separation anxiety, but it is also true that that care giver was more anxious by nature, and it seems obvious at this point that that played a role. Thus far, she has not shown any separation anxiety in her second foster home. There is a possible secondary problem of aggression with other dogs, but this has only happened in one instance and we mention it only to be fully forthcoming; it seems a case of a very bungled introduction of two dogs to a newly blind girl. In other instances with dogs she has been just fine. We suspect that being newly blind, she is just initially unsure and mention this only to be fully forthcoming. In many ways, Tess is the perfect dog for a household without other pets. She may well be fine with them also, but being unable to see is new to her and there is just something about her that makes us think she should either be an only dog or perhaps with another very loving one. She is crate trained but would far rather cuddle. We, her caregivers, have loved and lived with animals all our life and every one of them is special; and it is true that we have always worked very hard to find the right home for any dog in need of one. With Tess, something else is in play too -- she approaches the world with an entirely open and loving heart despite what has been done to her. We very much want to honor her faith. Note: Tess has no health issues as a result of the shooting and we think she can see a little from one eye.

    Update 07/13/15: Hello my name is Buckley, I am a half Yorkie and Lhasa Apso, which is why I have these big beautiful eyes. I am looking for a forever family who will let me love them for as long as I live. I really love kind children, the kinder the better. I have only a few issues I would like to share.

I am potty trained, however if you are going to gone for several hours I will need a belly band, my bladder is not that big. ...

I am 3 years old, I have been neutered (without asking to be) I am updated on all my shots, and today had a complete blood panel done. I am in very good health. I was really skinny when I moved in with my foster family, but have put on 2 pounds, and I'm feeling much better. I enjoy being brushed, and do very well being groomed. If you are looking for a perfect addition to your family you should ask to meet me. Sincerely, Buckley 6/25/15 It was discovered after his transport, that Buckley has kennel cough. He is on medication and we hope he'll be well soon so he can be groomed. He is very attached to his foster mom and cuddles with her as much as he can. 6/23/15 Buckley (formerly Lucky) was surrendered by his family because they were moving. He is a sweet boy who loves his treats. He rides nicely in the car, has lived with other dogs and a cat and appears to be housetrained. Please watch for more updates on him as he settles into his new foster home. (Less)

I get around pretty good once I am standing up, but I don't do so good on slippery floors AND when I ... (Read More)get tired, I have my own doggie wheel chair (it comes with me) to help me get around! I don't have any severe health issues. I was taking a liver supplement for a while, but doc says I shouldn't have to take it any more. I am a good boy and would be absolutely perfect for an older couple or family that would just like to sit around and cuddle with me. If you think I would be perfect for you, please contact my foster mommy Jennifer for more info! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-08-00229Toby (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We have had Toby since he was 6 weeks old. We met both of his parents and they seemed like they were very sweet, well-behaved dogs. At about a year and a half Toby began to demonstrate some fear aggression toward people, particularly males, but basically anyone he did not know well, including our kids's friends. Toby has never bit anyone, but he has lunged and snapped, making us fearful that it is a possibility in the future. He gets along well with other dogs when properly introduced, but it takes him some time. He does not do well at dog parks or other places with dogs running loose. We are going to have a daycare in our home ... (Read More)beginning in late August and have decided that we do not feel comfortable keeping Toby given the liability associated with running a daycare. Depending on when he is adopted, he may come with a decent amount of food as well. Toby is a sweet dog and is very loyal to his family. We hope he will be adopted by someone who can provide the love and additional training he needs so that his behaviors can be changed. Please contact me if you are interested in adopting/meeting Toby!

    Honey is a rescue. She was found with an infected gunshot wound on her front leg and was starving. She is good with large male dogs. Not females or smaller dogs. Honey likes to be cuddled and is very affectionate. She sleeps in the bed snuggled up to you and likes to snuggle while watching t.v. She is young and trainable. We think from her ears and markings, that she is part german shepherd. Honey is afraid of loud noises, so a quiet home would be best.

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)

    We need your help - please share this boy's post so we can find him the RIGHT home. This is Lakota. He has been a puppy mill breeding dog his entire life. He is a Red and White Siberian Husky who is 7 years old. He is blind. He maneuvers very well with the sound of your voice. He is a VERY sweet boy. He is learning very quickly around here and maneuvering the building and exercise yards very well. He will adjust very well to a home environment with minimal work because he picks it up so quickly. He would be best in a home without small children so he doesn't get startled - he isn't very playful - he is calm and loveable. Much more of a ... (Read More)couch potato. He would also do best in a single story home - blind dogs have a difficult time (for the most part) with stairs and with his age we would prefer not to see him have to maneuver stairs. He has never known a real family. His only purpose in life was to impregnate the females. He is a beautiful boy who deserves a chance at a family. Help us by sharing his story so we can find him a home. He is now current on his shots and has been neutered. (Less)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hi, my given name is Paisley. My foster mom and dad refer to me as Wiggle Butt cuz my whole rear end wiggles when I see people. I am a 6 year old German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix and I love people. My favorite game is kick ball, you kick the soccer ball and I go chase it down. I also love to snuggle, get belly rubs, and the challenge of getting treats out of my Kong toy. Even though I am kennel trained, there really is no need to keep me kenneled. I'm not destructive at all and treat all my toys gently. I am a quiet girl and don't bark unless there is a reason. My foster parents say I am very smart and learn quickly. ' I like most, but ... (Read More)not all other dogs. I don't like cats. I enjoy walks with my people and am getting better on leash.'I am a strong girl and will pull if I see something I want. As they say I'm the whole package;'housetrained, kennel trained, spayed, fully vaccinated, and micro chipped.' All I need is my very own forever family and home.' The adoption application can be completed at www.furfunrescue.org. For more information about Paisley please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only.

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Cassidy is a 4 year old Red Heeler. Her mother was exposed to micro toxins while pregnant so she has a deformed left foot. Don't let it fool you this does not slow this girl down. She is sweet as can be. Very smart she knows tricks including sit, down, roll over, speak. She has been to a class to help her issues with other dogs but it trained the owner not the dog. She does tend to walk on her back legs every once in a while and she jumps up. Due to the jumping and licking of face and climbing she probably isn't good for small children. She does not get along with other dogs at all. She pins them. She is always ready to go out side. Potty ... (Read More)trained. She needs rehomed due to long term apartment life from here on out with a traveling job. Cassidy is crate trained as well. She loves to play outside and will fetch just about anything but her favorite is a soccer ball. She loves toys, treats, bones or just being loved. She tends to be protective and guards from other animals and sometimes people. Cassidy comes with her records. She is up to date on shots, she is micro chipped, and spayed. She has a deformed left front leg. This does not need any special treatment except the nails grow fast and curled. They need cut regularly. Which can be a task all in its own. Currently we have her sedated to do so. Other wise she is a healthy, happy dog. Also included is her leash and collar. Right now she is on Puppy Chow because she gets lean in the summer. Cass is looking for a loving forever home. She needs someone or a family that can give her lots of attention and love. She needs space to run and fetch. She needs to be in a single dog home. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ms. Elsa will be 4 years old around the 14th of this month. She has spent more than 50% of her life in a shelter. That is a shame. She is a beautiful dog. According to the DNA that was done on her she has Great Pyrenees, Boxer and Doberman in her. She is a hunter. If it moves she will catch it - and probably hurt or kill it. There is NOT one aggressive bone in her body towards humans or dogs her own size but if there is a Rabbit, Squirrel, Cat or even a deer within range she is gonna get it. She is a very fast runner and an electronic fence does not contain her. On the other hand, she is very well behaved, housebroken, great ...

As part of Clear the Shelter Day we have reduced her adoption fee to $50.00 in the hopes that she will never see another day in a shelter. (Less)

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.

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.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal.
