Rescue Me ID: 17-10-22-00451Smokey (male)

Siberian Husky    Age: Senior

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

    Smokey is currently at the Cedar Bend Humane Society, taken there by my ex for our daughter who can't take care of him anymore due to her circumstances. I hate to see him put down; he's so sweet and healthy although he's about 14yrs old. He likes to go for walks and does not 'run' as younger Huskies often do. He does have a fatty deposit on his right shoulder but the vet says it is not a problem for him. Someone PLEASE help me find him a home. My current husband has bad allergies so I cannot take him - to my DISMAY!!! I plan to pick him up from the Humane Society on Monday but I don't know what I'm going to do with him!

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Rythum is a senior Basset/Beagle mix who is about 10 years old. Unfortunately he needs quite a bit done to him so he will be with us for a while. He is not yet neutered so we have to get that done and add to that he is Heartworm Positive so if the vet feels he is strong enough to undergo the treatment we will have him treated. He is a lover - doesn't much like being in a crate but let him out and he is a real love. We are keeping our fingers crossed that his surgery and his heartworm treatment will go off without any problems. He deserves to have a chance at a happy ending in his life.

He is underweight and is at about 55 lbs. right now. it appears he may be housebroken but that is the extent of his manners. He gets along with other dogs his size but probably not small dogs or cats - he seems to have hefty prey drive and plays VERY rough. If you have another dog - he must be fed separately. He devours four plus cups of food in under 2 minutes and is looking for what else there is to eat. We will not adopt him into a home with young children. If you have food in your hand he nearly ... (Read More)takes your hand off to get to it. As of today he is neutered, current on all of his shots, we have started worming him. He is heartworm negative. We have also micro-chipped him. He will require an experienced owner who knows how to deal with a puppy (which is what he still is - albeit a big one). He is not for the novice dog owner. He needs an experienced owner with a firm hand (kind but firm).

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Bossy, but I'm not a bossy dog. I'm not sure why I was given that name and neither does my foster mom, so she has been calling me Boston. I am three years old and weigh 26 pounds. I am thought to be a Mountain Feist mix. This is a newer breed that started in the southern part of the US. I have a beautiful brindled short coat so my shedding is pretty minimal. I am a happy dog who gets along well with other dogs and cats. I get along with everyone. I might be a little shy at first, but once is have a little time to get to know you I will crawl in your lap and snuggle. I love to run and play with the other dogs and ... (Read More)people.

I am a dog you can keep with you all the time, and that is the way I would like it. Now some information from my rescuers: Bossy is one of the 29 dogs Fur Fun Rescue took in from Arkansas after Hurricane Harvey. Bossy was at the shelter we took him from for just short of a year. He is such a great dog it proves that these small shelters just don't get people looking at the dogs they have. He was so happy to be out of the shelter he has loved every moment of his new life in foster care. Bossy is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped. He is heartworm positive and undergoing treatment following the American Heartworm Society's protocol. Bossy would like to find his forever home but until he is through treatment (about 2 months) we would place him in a foster to adopt situation. We want to pay for, and follow through on his heartworm treatment before we complete his adoption. We would like Bossy to be with his forever family while he goes through heartworm treatment and would complete his adoption when he finishes treatment.

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Spree was originally adopted from us in July as an 9 week old puppy. She was one of Tasha's babies. The mom was a border collie mix and as to what dad was - we don't have a clue - except that Spree looks like she may be a Heeler mix. The family that adopted her were not happy with her. Apparently they were having a hard time housebreaking her and she and the dad did not like each other and apparently she was nipping (which we have seen no sign of here). We are happy they followed the contract and brought her back to us so we could find the right home for her. She is now 4 1/2 months old and is an active girl. She gets along great with ... (Read More)other dogs and loves to wrestle and play. She has no problem with men around here at the shelter so not sure what that was all about. We have brought her puppy shots current and she is looking for a home who will spend the time to make her a happy member of a family. Because she missed out on some early puppy training she will require someone experienced in dealing with housebreaking and how to work with the nipping (if it is occurring) problem. She LOVES toys and will spend hours playing with her kennel mate and the toys. She is at the shelter and available for visitors. If you think you might be interested in Spree please go to our website and complete an adoption application. We are going to ask that all members of the immediate family meet her before any adoption to make sure there aren't any issues with anyone in the family and that all of the famiily is on board with a new four legged family member.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Carly is still very much a puppy and she is probably a German Shepherd mix. Her date of birth is 12/15/16. She is very sweet and a very smart dog. We have her in with another dog her size and they get along great. She was surrendered because she is not a fan of Chicken, Ducks and apparently cats too. She has a prey drive and because no one worked with it as a puppy it is now a situation where she can't live with small animals. She is housebroken, knows her basic commands and absolutely loves to play. She has lived with kids and no issues were reported with that. She is full of energy and needs to learn some more basic manners - like ... (Read More)not jumping on you. She is ready to go home now, spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. She is just missing a family who doesn't have chicken, ducks or cats (or probably any other small creature). Carly's adoption fee is $200.00. If you are interested in this beautiful girl, please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application. (Less)

Silky Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Toby is fostered in Urbandale Iowa through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. Toby is a 7 lb., 10 yr old Silky who came to Unite Yorkie Rescue in January 2017. Toby arrived with some personality baggage thinking he was the alpha male and had some anxiety that caused him to display some aggressive behavior when he wasn't feeling secure or comfortable with a situation. He's been working on his anxiety and aggressive response to uncomfortable situations but will likely need continued work with someone who understands his needs and is willing to devote the time to ongoing training, and understanding of the Silky breed. Toby is ... (Read More)such a sweet boy, he loves being part of a 'family pack', being held and cuddled, and loves to give kisses. He prefers women to men, but does well with both. Toby gets along with other dogs and does well with respectful children, he acts like a playful puppy still. He loves his toys, his favorite game is to hide his toy and have someone find it and play with him. Toby should have commitment by his forever family to a high quality diet, for life. Toby would love to have a mommy and daddy who can take him for walks, and spend lots of time with him. He will need a home where he won't be left alone, and due to his past anxiety issues he will need to become very comfortable and feel safe with the family he becomes a part of. For this reason must remain in the nearby Des Moines Iowa area (10 miles or so), so that he can ease into his new home, and ensure it's a good fit.

Dachshund Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Doc is a 7 year old Dachshund mix. He weighs 25 pounds with short Doxie legs. Doc came up to Iowa from Texas after hurricane Harvey. He was homeless before the hurricane and moved north to make room for those dogs that would need to be held so their owners could find them after the storm. Doc is a very friendly guy who is happy to meet new people. Doc does well on a leash and would love to get out and about getting some exercise. He is ready to see the Iowa sites. Coming from Texas the upcoming winter might be a shock for him. So there might be some sweaters or coats needed in the next few months. We don't think he would mind as ... (Read More)long as he is warm. Doc is happy to be with his people and just hang out watching TV or running about town. He is a go with the flow kind of dog. Doc does tend to bond to one person and wants to have that person's attention. He can be a little jealous if he has to share his person. For that reason he we do best as the only dog in his home. He does well meeting other dogs on walks and visiting, but he would rather be the single dog in his home. His ideal home would be with a single person that can be his sun and moon. Doc is housetrained, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and heartworm tested. Doc has recently had his teeth cleaned. If you would like to meet Doc, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org.

Rat Terrier 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 

    Dina Lou is a 3-year old Terrier mix'|one of the 29 dogs Fur Fun Rescue took in from the Arkansas shelter after Hurricane Harvey. She is 17lbs of total sweetness! Despite so much time in a shelter, Dina Lou is adapting to life in a home, with the noises, people, and other animals. She adores meeting new folks and absolutely loves kids! She gets along fine with the other dogs and cats she has met'|but, in the end it is people who she most wants to be with. Dina Lou is a cuddler and will snuggle right in next to you for a belly rub, head scratch, or just to be near you. She makes it very clear when she would prefer you keep petting ... (Read More)her with her nudges and pawing'|she is a total love-bug! She also enjoys time exploring and playing in the yard. While a fenced in yard is not a huge deal, I am sure Dina Lou would prefer it after so much time without the space and freedom to run. Dina Lou is just learning about toys and seems to prefer the cat toys over the squeaky dog ones. She is not sure what to do when you throw a ball but will run around the yard and play chase with you forever! This nugget of joy walks well on a leash with her frequent stops being to meet new people or check out noises and new things she has never experienced. While Dina Lou has some tendencies that would indicate she has been in a home, with a family'|there is still much she is learning and a lot of the world that is new to her. Dina Lou was one of the many of the Arkansas 29 that were Heartworm positive. Because someone failed to give her Heartworm preventative every month she failed his heartworm test at the vet. Dina Lou is undergoing treatment following the American Heartworm Society's protocol. Dina Lou would like to find her forever home but until she is through treatment (about 3 months) we would place her in a foster to adopt home. We want to pay for, and follow through on her heartworm treatment before we complete an adoption but would like Dina Lou to be bonding with his forever family soon. Dina Lou is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, and has been HW tested. If you would like to meet Dina Lou, please complete the adoption application found at our website (www.furfunrescue.org) and if you have questions about her please call Rox at 319-929-6657 or email her at rox@furfunrescue.org Indoor home only.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-24-00261Ares (male)

Siberian Husky    Age: Adult

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

    Ares is a 5 year old Siberian Husky who was surrendered to the shelter when his family couldn't deal with his food aggression with their other dog any longer. He absolutely must be fed by himself - not around people or other dogs. He got along fine with the other dogs if food isn't involved. It isn't because he is underfed - in fact he doesn't even eat his full servings of food when he is fed so our guess is no one worked with him as a puppy to prevent the behavior or at some point in his life he was not fed regularly and had to compete for his food. He is housebroken and gets along with all humans. He isn't very good on a leash - he is ... (Read More)strong and he uses that to his advantage to go where he wants to go. Because of his obsession with food he absolutely should not be in a home with small children - we are unsure how far beyond his bowl this may extend and we want to make sure no one gets hurt. We will be recommending to whomever adopts him that he learn to eat in a crate and at no other times - not even a treat unless he is crated to do so. We are working with that here at the shelter and that is how he is being fed. He is now tking a treat gently. He is neutered, current on his shots and is heartworm negative. He just needs to find the right home that understands Siberians and their special needs and requirements. They are a beautiful breed but very unique so please do your research.

    Onyx got adopted last weekend. Everyone knew how terrified she still is of people and strange things. After a few days the person who adopted her realized it was more than she could deal with. Onyx is apparently afraid of grass also so going potty outside was an issue. She is always on concrete or gravel here at the shelter. A scared dog can take weeks, months or years to come around. She had no human interaction for a minimum of a year before coming to us. She is about 3 years old and we were told she is an English Setter mix. She does do excellent with other dogs.

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Debra. She is a German Shepherd and she is 3 1/2 years old. Historically she was a therapy dog for a Wounded Warrior. After that she ended up in a situation that no dog should endure. We are trying to stay positive so will say nothing more about her last few months. She has lost most of her basic training unless you are firm with her - she will definitely need a refresher obedience class. She has a VERY HIGH prey drive - ducks, geese, chickens, cats, rabbits, etc., are all OFF LIMITS FOR HER. She is high energy and will therefore require a large fenced in yard of no less than 5 feet high - preferably 6 feet. She is too rough ... (Read More)for small children - so no children under probably about 12. She does do well with dogs her own size or bigger and we would have to do an extensive meet and greet to assure everyone got along. She isn't a very big girl at about 60 lbs. She listens to men better than women. She is strong and we are seeing a stubborn streak in her that a refresher obedience class should help with. She REALLY would do best in a home that is experienced with German Shepherds - this is not a dog for a novice dog owner. We won't even consider an application that has not had experience with hard to handle breeds. She has not had a good few months and will require time, love, patience and a firm hand (not a cruel one - just firm). (Less)

    Leo is a loving family member. He is very friendly. To friendly at first but after a few minutes he mellows out. He loves to hike, swim and run in the priare.

They snuggle with him all the time. I take him regularly to dog parks where he will occasionally get in a initial scrum with another male dog, but then then mellow out and he plays fine. He also goes to a dog day care swhere there have been no incidents. Please contact me as soon as ... (Read More)you can if you are interested.

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Cuddles is about a year old and is full of love and energy. She gets along with other dogs great. Loves kids and adults. Might be a little too high energy for really small children. She still needs to learn some basic manners (such as not jumping). If you are sitting down she thinks she belongs on your lap. She is only about 40 lbs. Her name does suit her.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-18-00070Grizzly (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Grizzly is one of the 29 dogs Fur Fun Rescue took in from Arkansas after Hurricane Harvey. He is a 10 month old, 30 pound Terrier mix. Grizzly and his 5 litter mates came into the shelter in November 2016 when they were two weeks old and were nursed by a surrogate mama. Before coming into our foster home he had spent his entire life in a shelter. Grizzly was very fearful when he arrived at his foster home, he had never been out of the fenced run at the shelter. He quickly started to thrive and has learned that people can be a good thing. Grizzly is very loving and affectionate with his foster moms, and doesn't miss his chance to climb in a ... (Read More)lap for cuddling or to take a nap. Grizzly is hesitant and shy meeting new people so having another dog to show him the ropes would be ideal. He doesn't quite know what to make of children, having never seen them until just recently. He sees them thru the fence at his foster home but is too shy to approach when they call to him. Grizzly plays well with all the other dogs at his foster home and loves toys which he'd never seen before. He is a very active puppy and would benefit from another playful dog in his new home. He needs a fenced yard to run and play safely. Grizzly is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested. If you would like to meet Grizzly, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Grizzly you can contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only. Adopters within two hours of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Adoption donation $200.

    Hugo is a mutt and proud of it. He weighs 64 pounds and is 7 years old. We think he is a Pointer mix but there are probably many breeds mixed in Hugo to make him the pretty boy he is. Hugo is a happy guy and greets new people with his tail wagging which in turn wags the rest of him. Hugo likes other large dogs and enjoys playing with them but is also very attached to his people and follows along wherever they go. Hugo is not a fan of cats or small dogs. Hugo is a hugger, he will stand up, wrap his paws around you and smile. Hugo is one of the 29 dogs Fur Fun Rescue took in from Arkansas after Hurricane Harvey. Hugo had been at the shelter ...

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

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

    I have a red nose pit who I have cared for intermittently for years, when his so-called owner was in rehab or sober living. Now he's abandoned the dog. Red and I love each other. But I do not want a dog. My children are grown, and I want my freedom. I watched YouTube videos, and I'm proud of how well I trained him, though it could always be more. He gets a lot of compliments on his obedience. He is unreliable around other dogs. Fine on leash, just don't want dogs to run up on him, or vice versa. He lives with my cat, and I feel very comfortable with that. I am in the process of introducing a muzzle, so I can take him places--walk down the ... (Read More)street!--with less fear of a loose dog running up on us. (Though sometimes it's fine.) I have dog-free fields near me where he runs every day. He's a watch-dog, probably what would be called 'dominant' in his disposition, but I am his alpha. I don't anymore let him run up barking at people coming in the door--though my housemates got used to getting bum-rushed by the pit bull! Now he does not 'say hi', unless I give permission. I make the rules clear, and he abides them. But I cultivated that respect from him, and he would probably need what you'd call an experienced owner. They would get a balanced, well trained, loving and deeply-bonded companion in return. He's 5 1/2, finally got agreement from his so-called owner to get him neutered within the last 5 months (before he stopped communicating with me). Because he is so bonded with me, I would do anything to help him transition to a new home, including taking it slowly, and paying for obedience classes (to facilitate connection). (Less)

Here is what his foster mom had to say about him: Stan is the biggest of our Texas rescue fosters at about 90 lbs. He's a puller, and very strong, but with a no-pull harness, he walks very well. I think he may have been an outside dog, and don't believe he's housebroken. Does not like other dogs by his food. He gets along well with mild mannered Smokey, but hates busy Bob. At 5 yrs old, he would probably do best as an only dog. He barks alot when he sees us in the yard and wants attention, but does not bark at our neighbors.

    Kilo was with us as an infant. He got adopted the end of July and got returned as he was too stressful for the wife. Kilo has a date of birth of 5/11/17. He is a American Bulldog/Boxer mix pup. He is an amazing pup, very smart and very energetic (which is normal for a puppy). He is going to be a pretty good sized boy. When he was returned we were told that he is now housebroken and he has done amazing in his kennel since he came back a few days ago. Please remember, if you are looking to adopt a puppy - they are lots of work and lots of energy. They get into everything - they chew everything and they need to learn all the good stuff ...

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Romeo (we have named him that) - he is young - probably a little bit of Shepherd in there. His story is enough to make those of us in Animal Rescue dislike humans even more than we did yesterday. Romeo's owner called for a cab to take her to American Inn in Clear Lake. She had the dog with her along with all of his stuff, crate, bag containing toys, bark collar, shock collar, rolled up magazine (probably used to hit him with), a few treats and a bottle of shampoo, etc. Of course everything but any medical records. During the cab ride the passenger told the driver that she was with Roxie's Miniature Horse and Ponies. During the ... (Read More)drive she started hitting the dog - the driver told her to stop hitting him. She said the dog was a 'pain in the __' - he was a puppy and would not let her sleep at night. When she got out of the cab at American Inn she told the driver to take him to the pound or whatever - just get rid of him - and just shut the door and walked away without a second thought to her dog. Fortunately for Romeo, the driver had adopted from us and got in touch with us and brought him to us. I shudder to think what may be happening to the miniature horses and ponies in this person's care - poor animals. We will be working with Romeo to get him over his fear of hands and will get all of his vetting completed next week. FYI - abandoning animals is a CRIME - unfortunately in Iowa getting that enforced is a near impossible task. Romeo is getting lots of love around here right now and he is eating it up. (Less)

Dalmatian Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chubba is still very young. His DOB is 2/13/17. He is a lab/dalmation mix. He lived a miserable six months here on this earth before coming to us and our goal to make the rest of his life a good one. He was 'dumped' way before he was old enough to care for himself. He ended up in an area that was filled with Porcupine and had the needles all over his body - especially his face. He had to be live trapped to get him. He was absolutely terrified and is still leary of humans but is coming around vey slowly. It took almost two months for his sores to heal and for him to 'tolerate' being touched but he is doing better - all physical wounds ... (Read More)are healed and he is now coming to the gates looking for attention. He requires a loving and PATIENT home. He is not a 'love you to death' type of puppy. You will have to earn that love through lots and lots of patience. He does great with other dogs and is starting to be curious about all of the attention they get. He would probably be best in a home with another dog to help him finish coming out of his shell (a non-aggressive dog of course). He doesn't have a mean bone in his body but as with any fearful dog - he could bite - so therefore no young children for this beautiful baby. He is afraid to eat with another dog near by so will require an area where he can be fed by himself. His adoption fee is $100.00. If you think you have the patience and love for this young guy, please go to our website and complete an adoption application you will find that at www.patriotsforpets.com He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.

    This is Pebbles - she is just a year old and is probably a Pit mixed with something smaller. She isn't a very big girl. She is super friendly and wants to be everyone's friend. Unfortunatly at her young age she came into us with a litter of puppies that she refused to take care of.

She is a super sweet girl - just very young to have the responsibility of puppies. She is spayed, heartworm negative, current on her shots, wormed and micro-chipped. She loves kids and around here she hasn't met a ... (Read More)stranger. She gets along with other dogs, loves kids and adults. She has not been cat tested.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-07-00152Ragnar (male)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Ragnar - he was originally with us last year and has been returned. We are not even sure where to start in describing him. We have a 8 page report from his adopters describing him. There are tons and tons of good stuff on him and what a wonderful dog he is - but he is described as having a Jekyll and Hyde personality. He will do great and then all of sudden turn on someone that he knows or was just loving up to. Unfortunately in a home with children, family and friends the changing of personalities did not work. Since we have seen none of the unwanted behavior here we aren't even positive what to look for in an adopter. He ... (Read More)is only two years old - has been to trainers who have not seen the issue so can't even begin to advise on additional things to try. The behavior exists and rears it's ugly head when least expected. About 80% of the time he appears good with other dogs and then all of a sudden that goes bad. He was originally shown as a Retriever mix but some of the behavior being described leads us to believe there is some Chow in there. For anyone interested in meeting Ragnar we will require they read the write up on him from the prior owner. Unfortunately with his bite history we will only get one final shot at finding him the right home. We hope one is out there. We 'think' a single man or woman who can demonstrate they are in charge, that has very little company and strangers through the home would be best. He will also need to be the only dog. He will also need a fenced in yard to avoid having trouble with neighbor dogs. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sammy is under 2 years old. He came to us in early January absolutely terrified of humans. He would bite when he was terrified. He has come a LONG LONG way since then. He will now come up to his gate and allow people to gently touch him. He goes in and out without having to be on a leash and forced to go outside. He is now curious about humans and has gotten very good with the regular volunteers here at PFP. He is housebroken. He will require a quiet home with someone who is VERY patient and will just wait for him to be curious enough to seek attention. We know that adoption will set him back a little bit but it is time to start ... (Read More)looking for his very own home. He isn't a real big boy - about 35 pounds. His breed is anyone's guess.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-16-00213Roscoe (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
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 loves his toys and plaing fetch. He does not do well with cats. He would probably be best with kids over the age of 10 so they will be a little more respectful. He is about 18 months old. He is housebroken, neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and ... (Read More)micro-chipped. He does not show well in his kennel - so to visit Roscoe you need to be willing to spend a little time with him to let him learn to trust you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-09-00619Jake (male)

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 

    UPDATE ON JAKE AS OF 3/5/17: Some of you may remember Jake's story from November. 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 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. We have never been able to find the right foster for Jake so he is living with us at the shelter. He has come a LONG way since November. Living in the shelter isn't the idea life for him but it is a whole lot ... (Read More)better than what he came out of. He has gained the weight he needed. We are doing slow HW treatment - which won't solve the problem but hopefully keep it from getting worse. He will never be adoptable. He is not neutered and with his heartworm that makes his outlook for life not perfect but he is loved here at the shelter, he gets attention from the staff regularly, he has good food and gets all of his needs tended to. He has become an overall healthy dog with the exception of his heartworm. He has a couple of quirks - he is not a fan of young children - they want to hug him and he goes NUTS when you do that. He doesn't like having his neck scratched or rubbed - that would be from 11 long years living on a chain. He will bite if you hug him or rub his neck the wrong way. He is NOT good with strangers. He takes a while to warm up. He is amazing with all of the volunteers around here that have spent the time to get to know him slowly. We have not given up on finding him a foster home to live out the balance of his senior years. We know he gets along with female dogs but not when it comes to food - he does protect that and we know that is because for 11 years he never got what was needed. He has done amazing with housebreaking and has not had any accidents in his kennel in about 3 months. We are very proud of the progress Jake has made. The upper left picture is when he came to us - the other two are now. A big thanks to those who have occasionally sent us a check to help pay for Jakes good senior food - it has been a tremendous help. Keep Jake in your thoughts and prayers. (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!
