She lets people she knows and trusts pick her up and hold her. She enjoys laying on my desk and loves treats. She is now taking treats from people she has never met!

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Cindy. We aren't even going to go into details about how she came to be with us as people would accuse us of being negative about humans. This girl deserves an amazing home. She is about 7 months old. It is reported that she is a lab/border collie mix. She was pretty terrified here at the shelter when she first arrived with all of the other dogs but she is finally settling in a little. She came to us with absolutely no shots whatsoever (purportedly a vet told the owner no shots until 6 months old - we say BS as there is NO vet that would say that). She was not spayed and it appears little to no training went into her. She is ... (Read More)still ALL puppy. She will chew - she will dig - she will jump - she will need to be finished on housebreaking. She loves to play with balls. She knows 'sit' but it is just a hit the floor long enough to comply and then the butt is back up and moving. With a little bit of work she will be an amazing family pet. She shows no aggression toward other dogs we just believe she was never socialized around them so it unsure what to do. She smells the cat but has shown no aggression. When kids come in the tail wags her whole butt. If you want a lab that already has 'part' of the puppy stage behind it, come and visit Cindy. Before she heads to a forever home she will be spayed, current on all of her shots and she will be micro-chipped. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-20-00676Maverick (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Howdy, Folks! Maverick here, fresh off the trail. You may know that I'm not the kind to settle down in one place, but the time has come for me to find my forever hitchin' post, pick out a family and start my new life. Now, I've been known to pull a few fast ones in my day; I'm pretty clever if I say so myself. Doggie door? No problem. If you don't have a doggie door I'll go stand by your door to signal when I need to take a break. Car rides? Just like ridin' a horse; I sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery. I may get the itch now and then to want to wander, so you'll need to make sure there aren't any holes for me to sneak through ... (Read More)your fence. And I'll give you fair warnin' that I'm pretty good at jumpin', so I'll need fence to keep me corralled until I'm sure I'm supposed to stay. I learned a lot out on the trail, especially how to strut like a gentleman, straight and steady, right next to my companion. The trail gets really dusty, so I know bath time is important. Baths aren't my favorite pastime, but I do stand stock still and endure the scrubbin' and rinsin', and I love snugglin' in a warm towel afterward. Social settings are a breeze for me. I'm cool with cats and other dogs, but my favorite breed is a two-legged human. I'm content around kiddos but I just adore adults. I prefer to be right next to a human, so when there are other four-legged friends around, they may need to ask me to join in a game of chase before I will play with them. Just get me started and I'm rarin' to go! Since I spent so much time alone in my travels, I am lookin' for a place where I can have a good buddy with me all the time, either four-legged or two. I might start singin' if I'm left alone for too long. I never did take anything that wasn't mine, but I'm lookin' for heart or two to steal, and then call it a game. My Pappy used to say, 'The only time you ever quit when you're winnin' is after you've won it all.' How about takin' a chance on good ol' Maverick? I may be just what you're lookin' for to make a full house. Maverick is a 16 pound Rat Terrier mix and approximately 4 years old. He is neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations, heartworm tested and microchipped. If this handsome dude speaks to your heart, fill out an adoption application! If you have questions about Maverick, please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. If you would like to meet Maverick please fill out the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. Adopters within two hours of Cedar Rapids, Iowa only, please. Indoor homes only.

Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Misty is a beautiful 7 year old 80lb sable German Shepherd. She is a bit timid at first but with patience she will come out of her shell. She likes to be near but is not overly clingy which makes the nuzzles and kisses that much more special. Misty is in very good health. She knows basic commands, is crate trained, potty trained, and takes treats very gently. Misty hasn't been around kids but she's so gentle it shouldn't be a problem. She loves to run and chase balls. She plays like a nut with her two goofball foster brothers. Misty would do best in an active home, but her new family will need to go slow with her at first. Please ...

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Izzy is a three year old Rottie (her birthday is 9/15). It's not gonna be a very happy birthday for this beauty since she finds herself in a shelter. Izzy was serving as a 'partial' therapy dog for a young child and she was amazing. Unfortunately she has a VERY high prey drive that got her into trouble. She has chased and gotten Rabbits, squirrels and most recently the neighbor's Yorkie which is why she ended up with us. None of them survived her. We also know that she can't be around cats. We believe she needs a home that will keep her contained when she is outside without supervision. We believe she would get along great with a dog ... (Read More)her own size if properly introduced. With her love for kids she would be a great family addition. She is housebroken, current on her shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee is $125.00. She is ready to go home. She is very sad here at the shelter but we believe given the love of a family she will snap out of it fairly quickly. If you are interested in adopting Izzy we recommend you fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com - it is located under the Adoption tab. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-14-00080George (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hello, meet George. When our neighbors moved and left George behind we took him in. We've known him for several years as he has lived next door to us. I believe he is about 8 years old. A pit/boxer mix. He has no idea he is a pitbull mix :-) His temperment is awesome. He is very sweet and gentle. He is great with other animals....although puppies scare him and cats terrify him. LOL! I've never known this dog to be aggressive with anyone or any animal. When the neighbors had him, and in the 6 months we've had him, he has never been anything but sweet to us and other animals. (My mother's Chihuahua likes to walk on his back.) What we know ... (Read More)about his health: He is blind. It appears he can see shadows when its light out. But otherwise he is blind and needs guidance quite often. I know he had colitis when they first got him but I believe he has outgrown it. However, he has always worn a muzzle that covers his entire snout....one in which he cannot smash outdoor gross things in his mask in order to eat them. I know the owners were worried that if he ate something he shouldn't, it might flare up his colitis again. He hates his nails being clipped I have found....he just gets scared, never offered to be aggressive in any way. We would love to keep George but we have 2 cats, 5 horses, and my mother lives next door with 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am also her full time caretaker and I don't have the time to devote to him like he deserves. He would make a great dog for someone who loves to give attention and has the patience to teach him how to navigate their home and property. As I said, he is great with kids and other animals, so a home with any of these is fine. Please give George a forever home. He is so sweet and is looking, so to speak, for someone he can love too.

    Dexter is fostered in Waukee IA 50263, through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. Dexter is a 7year old, 10 lb. male Yorkie who came to United Yorkie Rescue in September 2016. Dexter was surrendered by his owners due to potty issues noted specifically marking in the house. Since arriving to his foster home he's been on a regular potty schedule and has been going outside with no in house marking issues. He does wear a belly band when not under supervision to prevent marking or potty accidents in the home while he's learning the ropes and until his behaviors are established. Dexter gets along very well with all family members. ... (Read More) He enjoys children, men & women. He also interacts well with the other dogs in the home. He's most happy sleeping in a bed with humans; he's loves being with his people and will make a wonderful companion. Dexter is neutered and up to date on shots. Dexter's ideal forever home will require a solid/secure fence, no exceptions. He runs with speed and enjoys chasing rabbits and other wild life. His previous owners had a problem with him escaping from the home. Dexter wants a home with lots of attention, regular exercise and a fenced yard to run and play in. He's a smart, affectionate Yorkie seeking an affectionate and patient forever family. Dexter's new family will need to continue working with Dexter on consistent potty training. This would mean pottying on a regular schedule and rewarding experience. Are ready for this big bundle of love to leap into your heart? To find out more about this love bug contact his foster mamma through the question/inquiry link. To complete an application, go to United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. (Less)

Airedale Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    This is Dyke. He is one of the 11 male puppies out of the litter of 16 that recently came to PFP. Looking at these puppies it appears there may be some Terrier in them and then when you look at other pups you see what may be some boxer. Based upon absolutely no information from the person who dumped 17 puppies one block from a very high kill shelter the best we can give you is a guess on the breed(s). He should be all ready to go home by September 17th. His adoption fee will be $225.00. He will be neutered, current on his puppy shots, wormed, micro-chipped, current on flea/tick medication and on heartguard. If you are interested in ...

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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 

    This little girl is Piper. She got dumped at a shelter that was overfull and was scheduled to be pregnant. She got dumped because she had the audacity to get pregnant. Can you imagine that it was her fault versus the fault of her human who never got her spayed? Gee - new concept - take responsibility for spaying/neutering your animals and they won't end up pregnant. At under a year old this poor girl doesn't deserve what she has gotten out of life so far. Because the other shelter was going to have to put her down we agreed to take her. Unfortunately she is too far along and the only thing to do was to find her a foster home and let her ... (Read More)have the babies. She is with Addie and no doubt Addie will have a lot to say about this beautiful girl. Addie says she is 'perfect'. Addie will keep us all updated after her charges arrive. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This pretty girl is Rosie. She came into us with her four babies in tow. We have weaned the babies (which should have been done a couple of weeks ago) and giving mom some much needed rest. She has been spayed, is current on all of her shots, has been micro-chipped and is now ready for her forever home. She is absolutely the sweetest girl. She certainly appears to be housebroken and she loves everyone. She is a Red Heeler (mix) and is about a year and a half old.

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament

    Frankie is a very sweet dog, but is definitely full of energy. He is a longer-haired jack russell with curling white hair. He is well built, and his natural stance is like dogs stand in conformation shows when the judge is feeling their body. His owner is dying of cancer, is hospitalized, and the doctors say she only has a few days left, so Frankie needs a home soon.

Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis, Abused/Neglected 

    Duke arrived at Animal Lifeline in March of this year at only 9 months old. He was truly MISERABLE, with an itchy and extremely contagious, to humans and animals, skin infection. Duke had lived his entire life as a puppy chained up in a yard and it was obvious that he had been suffering from this condition for several months. That is just no way for a puppy to live%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD|or worse, to die! Fortunately for Duke, Animal Lifeline committed to properly and safely isolate and quarantine him during his recover; providing the necessary medication three times a day, weekly baths (at the ... (Read More)neighborhood car wash) and establishing an outside kennel exclusively for him so he could have play time and fresh air. Duke was now with caring people that encouraged him to finally be that playful puppy, the dog he had never had the chance to be. Duke is finally safe and healthy. At the end of April, he still had a slight skin infection, but is looking super handsome and is no longer contagious nor in quarantine. He still has some medications, care and healing to do but most importantly a bunch of play time to catch up on. We are proud to have given Duke a new life and we are proud of the things we do that most animal shelters just can't handle. Please contact the shelter 515 285 7387 to schedule a time to meet Duke if interested! (Less)

Mastiff Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    We want you to meet Duncan. He is a 3 year old Mastiff mix who isn't a real large guy at only 44 pounds. He was labeled as 'fractious' in a shelter in Tennessee and their intent was to kill him because of how he was acting. He would sit in a corner of his shelter and shake - he refused to make eye contact and would growl when people tried to catch him with a control pole. Most animals are terrifed when they get dumped in a shelter and you add someone with no compassion coming at you with a pole and noose on it and what would you expect? We literally agreed to take him the hour he was schedule to die. He got transported by two individuals ... (Read More)to us and he has NEVER looked back. He has made progress every single day and is now trusting most of the shelter volunteers. He will go in and out to the exercise yards with now issues and he actually comes to his gate to greet you now. By day five with us he was able to go home with Linda Heyden to be fostered. He gets along GREAT with all of her dogs (both large and small) and is did good with her cat. He is crate trained and housebroken. He has one bad habit (if it is bad) that he wants to jump up and give kisses. Pretty amazing for a dog that was labeled as having to die because he was too fractious. It is amazing to us that so many amazing dogs aren't given the chance at life because people are just too darn lazy to give the poor animal a chance to get over being terrified of being in a shelter. No one will ever be able to tell us that a dog doesn't know when it is on death row versus in a place that will love and care for it instead of waiting for it's number to come up to be killed. Duncan is safe with us and we will find him an amazing home who will cherish him and he will never again find himself sitting on death row - that is our promise to any dog that comes to us. UPDATE: Duncan is doing pretty amazing around here. He is back at the shelter and doing well socializing with humans. We believe he is now ready to transition to a permanent home. (Less)

    This is Mack. He is not quite two years old. He is probably a Staffordshire Terrier/Lab mix. He is dominant. He did very well with the husband in the house and he could do anything he wanted to do. He did great with small children but the older kids not so much. He bit a 9 year old visitor in the home unprovoked after playing ball. We are not sure what may have triggered the bite but we do not want to see him adopted into a home with children. After working with him, our best guess is that only a dominant owner will work for this guy. He is beautiful and does know some basic commands. He is neutered, current on his shots. He was an ...

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Trying to Rehome my dachshunds. I rehome them 3 years ago and will be moving and can't take them with. Rocky is 6 and he has a grain allergy. Lilly is 5. They have to go together as they have been together since birthmark they are not good with cats or smaller children as it makes Rocky nervous when kids are running around. They both show signs of being teased and it makes them uneasy. I just want the best for them. They are really good dogs. They just need to be with someone who has the time for them.

He has always been very well cared for & for whatever reason he has always been agressive towards men especially. He has nipped at several people & now that we have a baby we cannot take the chance that he may nip her. Gully's dream would be to sit on your lap all day. He is the cutest thing ever & was our first 'baby' but we can't take the risk of him nipping the baby. He's very loyal & protective of his masters but will take a while to warm up. He is approx. 10 lbs & in great physical health.

She is about 60lbs and just wants to spend the rest of her years being a member of a family. She rode in the van for 3 days with 6 teenagers and she was in heaven. She sits with me outside and loves to put her head on my lap--gratefully loving me. The day this picture was taken she was just hanging on my front porch enjoying the day. We do not know of any particular health issues with Suzy right now. She seems happy and healthy. She did have a hysterectomy 2 months ago and a few masses removed from her ... (Read More)mammaries. All benign. However, given her age (9-11?) all we can ask is for LOVE for her--no matter how many years she has left. Rescue is willing to discuss keeping up with vet bills for the remainder of her life if wonderful home can be found that will provide all the love and kindness Suzy deserves. Look at those eyes!! She loves walks and car rides too :) (Less)

Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

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

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Ben is an Old English Bulldog who absolutely loves people and kids of all ages. He enjoys long walks or runs along side a bike. He also gets along great with our 2 small breed female dogs. However, for some reason, he doesn't like any other dogs & becomes very aggressive towards them. We unfortunately just don't have time for him anymore. Our new business requires our attention away from home and the dogs, for about 16 hours a day. Leaving virtually no time for Bens walks or other attention. He does have seizures on occasion but is on medication to control them.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-28-00125Max (male)

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)

Paco came to United Yorkie Rescue in May 2016. A sweet 12lb. 10yr old Yorkie boy found as a stray in IL. Although Paco is micro chipped, his chip registration led to two people and neither wanted him! One said she'd given him away and the other didn't want to claim him. Who wouldn't want this cute, loving little boy?! Paco is neutered and up to date on his shots. He's so sweet, heart worm negative, is fine with children who are respectful of his small ... (Read More)size (older children best), gets along with other dogs his size and is doing well with his potty training reinforcement, with a schedule. Paco wold prefer not to be confined, he barks when kenneled preferring to roam. He is healthy but has a dry eye that's he's being treated for, with hopes that after treatment it'll clear up. Dry eye isn't a terrible condition should he need eye drops in his future. Paco has some arthritis which doesn't seem to affect his ability to get around at all, he manages stairs and jumping onto the sofa just fine! He's ready to settle into his retirement home and provide lots of love and entertainment in exchange for snuggles, treats and a comfy bed! Paco is seen regularly for blood work to check is medication levels for Cushings. He is doing well with no side effects. Paco will require ongoing support of his medical needs, which include prescription dog food, medication for Cushing's, and eye drops. He's a very good little boy when taking his medicine. He loves going for walks, and takes several every day. He's the perfect companion. To complete an application for this charming boy, go to http://unitedyorkierescue.org/ (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gracie was rescued from a high-kill shelter. She is the dog that dog trainers would use to see test another dog's temperament. Why? Because Gracie loves everyone and everything. We say, 'if he don't get along with Gracie, he don't get along!' Gracie thinks she is a lap dog. She has all the playfulness of a puppy, yet is intent on cuddling and basically SLEEPING on top of you. She has no idea of her body size and weight :) She needs a little bit of training on leash walking but otherwise, she is not destructive and knows how to immediately blend into a household. She is kennel trained and is very patient and looking to please. She ... (Read More)desperately needs a family of her own. A family that will make her their baby. When she was first rescued from the shelter she had another name, but we had to change it to Grace--because we feel that anyone that owns her is being graced. She is not a digger or a fence jumper. She waits her turn in the pack. Can you open your heart to Gracie? (Less)

It has been a long haul for Timber here in the shelter. 7 months is a long time. She is a happy girl and we haven't found anyone that she doesn't like. She was very protective when her babies were little and in fact she did destroy a kitten when it wandered into the area she was at. ...

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hercules - Hercules - Hercules - what can we say about you besides you are one big ball of stubborn. Hercules may be one of those dogs that we are unable to find a home for and may just end up as our Mascot. He is just under two years old. He has been adopted twice. He made it 5 days the first time until he destroyed a door and several other items because he didn't want to be outside. The second time he made it a few hours (not even to his new home) and got returned as he tore up the inside of their car on the way home and got mouthy when told to stop. In typical American Bulldog fashion, he is a big boy (at about 95 pounds) and all 95 ... (Read More)pounds of him wants to do it his own way. He gets really nervous around here during open hours and therefore doesn't show very well when he has visitors. He is great with people - and he does great here at the shelter in his kennel - never tears up a single thing (including his blanket or toys). We aren't quite sure why the change of behavior when he leaves here. He is fully housebroken. He has to be the only animal in the home as he does not get along with other animals. Really sad that this boy may never get the chance to know what a real home and the love of his own family is but around here we give him as much attention and love as possible. (Less)

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

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

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

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

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!
