Fox Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    'I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride'|' Hi! I'm Willie and I was found traveling the highways and byways all by myself but now I'm ready to settle down and become part a wonderful family. During my travels I crossed paths with lots of friendly people and I know that snuggling is a great thing and belly rubs are awesome! I learned that people think it's cute when I roll over for a belly rub, so I perform that trick often. Solo travel can get boring so I learned to entertain myself. I love to play with a squeaky ball, and will roll on it like it's a stability ball. I can also play fetch by throwing the ball with my mouth, ... (Read More)but I also like someone to throw it so I can run and get it! I love food, but I learned that it's not cool to beg people for their food, or to steal other animals' food. I also know that it's important to let everyone sleep through the night. I just curl up on my pillow (or next to you if that's OK) and fall right asleep. I am also trustworthy and won't chew on your stuff or do my business in the house. I am also cool about staying in a kennel during the day while you are gone. I didn't always have to hotfoot it while on the road; I hitched a ride here and there and noticed that it's a good thing to be polite and quiet and just enjoy the trip. Since I've ridden in vehicles quite a bit, it's not a big deal to me so I don't get all excited and worked up when I know I'm going for a ride. Because I traveled alone I didn't know anything about leashes so I am trying to learn not to pull. I'm smart, so it won't take much time for me to catch on. Now that I won't be On the Road Again, I'm ready to hang out at home. I prefer to keep tabs on you, so you won't be lonely when I'm around. The song says 'Home is Where You're Happy'; can I be part of yours? Willie is 3 years old and weighs 14 pounds. For more information about Willie you can contact Roxanne at rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. The adoption application can be completed at www.furfunrescue.org and submitted online.

Kuvasz 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 little beauty's name is June. She is almost two years old. Her family brought her to us as she was just not getting out of the 'puppy stage'. She still chews on stuff, she still has tons of energy and overall just don't want to deal with puppy hood any more - plus heavy work schedules make it impossible to work with her. She is not a very big girl although she is supposed to have some German Shepherd in her - we sure don't see it and at almost two we should start seeing more and more what she is mixed with. She is excellent with kids, she is housebroken but she still has lots of energy. She is good with other dogs and just wants tons ... (Read More)of attention. If you are willing to put a little work into this beautiful girl you will have one exceptional dog. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This baby's story will make you mad, it will make you want to cry and it will make you want to come and cuddle with her. Her name is Rosey Lou - she is 7 1/2 years old - she is VERY VERY thin and it is obvious she came from a very neglected background. We agreed to take her out of Oklahoma about a month ago and it took that long to get the vet to sign off on her as being healthy enough to travel. She has put on about 10 pounds in the last 10 days and comparatively speaking she looks good compared to what she did but she is still very emaciated. She is the absolute sweetest thing - in her foster home she got along great with two children ... (Read More)ages 3 and 5. She also gets along with other dogs. There is not ONE mean bone in her body. Just to look at her makes you want to hit someone as you sit and hold her and cry due to the condition she is in. NO animal should ever be put in this position of damn near starving to death. We will work very hard to get her healthy and find her a home who will love her for the rest of her life - unlike what she has experienced in her past. She is so sad to look at - it breaks your heart. Ms. Rosey we promise you that you will never go without another meal and without someone to love you. (Less)

Beagle Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Our latest resident is Charlie. He is a 10 year old Beagle mix who now finds himself without a family to care for him. We were told he is housebroken, doesn't really bark very often - just gets excited when you come home. He is reported as good with kids, good with other dogs and has never been around cats. We were told he does know all of his basic commands. This poor old guy is very sad about being here and just needs a comfy place to call his own. He looks very sad in this picture but this was the best one we could get of him.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-31-00433Brutus (male)

Neapolitan Mastiff    Age: Puppy

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

    We want you to meet Brutus. He is almost a year old. He is a Neapolitan Mastiff. He weighs in at about 110 pounds right now - but remember Mastiffs grow until almost 3 years old. He will not be able to go to a new home until August 9th at the earliest as he is on a quarantine hold. He got into a fight with the year old Great Dane living in the same home and a four year old child got in the middle of the fight and got bit. Even though his Rabies vaccination was current the law requires a 10 day hold on the animal (unless you are willing to have the dog euthanized and send to the State lab for testing). On the issue of the fight, please know ... (Read More)that neither of the year old dogs was neutered and both were males - they apparently got into it over a bone. To be on the safe side, we are looking for a home for Brutus where he will be the only male dog in the home (would have to test carefully if there is a female in the home). Even though he has historically done well with small children - we are going to be looking for a home with no small children. He has already had surgery on his right eye for what is commonly called 'Cherry Eye'. The left eye will be done next week as well as his neuter. This is a common problem with Mastiff's. He is a big boy and is kind of stubborn as well as kind of shy. He will need an experienced Mastiff adopter. Because of the extra surgery that he will be undergoing his adoption fee will be $250.00.

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Phiona was being watched by a woman and her family because her friend asked her to watch her for a few days. A few days ended up being 2 months, and Phiona ended up living in a car for that time because she was not allowed in the house. Animal Control was going to fine the woman 1,200 dollars if she didn't bring her to the shelter. She's now waiting for a rescue since we have a policy to only have one pit on the floor at a time. Please help her!

    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.

    Hi I'm Cindy! I was brought to the shelter as a stray. My owner did come looking for me, but didn't want to pay the fees to get me out, they also didn't want to get me spayed because they wanted to use me for breeding. I am still waiting for my forever home, it's lonely in here. I prefer a home without small children.

    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.

Yorkie Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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. If my family needs to go on trips without me, I would not do well being put in a kennel, having me stay with someone you know will treat me well is the only option that will insure I don't have a horrible time. 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. ... (Read More)I have been getting a lot of kisses from my foster mom, and have come to enjoy that very much, along with being told how wonderful I am. I enjoy car rides (except to the vet). 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)

    Let me tell you about myself. My name is Springer. I am a 10 year old Yorkie and although my owner loved me they were no longer able to care for me. I am here at Patriots for Pets looking for someone who is willing to love me and care for me in my senior years. I have a few issues that you should know about - I have cataracts really bad in my left eye. I don't care for small kids - probably under 10 would not be good - I am not spayed (and the shelter people think I am too old to be spayed) - I have bad teeth so I am on a soft food diet. I am not real fond of cats. I do well with dogs that are submissive but if I think someone is a bully I ... (Read More)am up for a tussle. I have rarely been on a leash. I have been given shots since I got here to the shelter so that is now good. I know my basic commands and I kennel up when I am told to do so. I weigh about 7 pounds and could use a good hair cut. I just need a great home that will care for me and love me. Someone has to know someone that will show me love for the balance of my days. Can you help me by sharing my story so I can find a forever home? (Less)

Siberian Husky    Age: Adult

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

    This lady was named Night Whispering Winds - we are calling her Whisper. She was grouped with the senior dogs at the end of the Siberian Huskies puppy mill auction and was overlooked when everyone was bidding on their new breeder.. As we got to the seniors it came down to myself and one puppy mill as it was pouring down the rain and everyone wanted to go back in the tent. We opened the bid at the minimum bid and were outbid immediately. The auctioneer knew we had been bidding on only seniors and asked me if we were willing to take the six that were left if we won the bid - we indicated we were. So he asked the other person bidding and ... (Read More)they said not really - we overbid him and the auctioneer immediately closed the bid with the final six huskies - with us winning the bid. The other bidder had already won this girl's sister and like her sister, she had been bred a few weeks ago. The other bidder wasn't real happy that we got this 6 year old but that was too bad. We were not willing to let her go back to the auction block to continue doing what she has done for the past several years. She is safe here with us. She is a shy girl - as you can see from the picture - she likes to hide and watch from afar before she warms up. She is doing well with some of our board members and the kids. There is no aggression in her whatsoever. She will continue to come out of her shell each day as people interact with her and show her there is more to life than being pregnant or nursing puppies.

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

    Cynch has been here at the rescue since last August. He was EXTREMELY fearful of everything! Almost a year later, Cynch is still fearful though not as bad as it was. It took months to get him to eat a piece of cheese from my hand. Now, he will let me catch him because he knows there will be cheese involved! If the enticement of cheese works and I don't, that is okay with me. I just love seeing Cynch respond to something! Doesn't even matter what it is. That he is responding is great motivation for me to keep working with him. We all love rewards and the reward of training is seeing progress. When you don't over a long period of ...

I took Mrs. Butter on Fri. 7/10/2015 to make sure she was current on her vaccinations (attached are copies of her records). Later that same day the vet called and informed us that she tested positive for heartworms. Financially we are unable to treat a dog we are not able to keep. We are under tight time constraints as our children leave for vacation with their grandparents tomorrow, and we leave on Friday. Our children understandably are upset that ...

It is our most fervent hope to find someone for her so that she does not have to be put to sleep. That is our absolute last resort. I am begging on behalf of Mrs. Butter that you please consider taking her. She is a most loving dog, fantastic with children, and a wonderful companion. It breaks our heart that we can not keep her.

    Actually there are two Norwegian Elkhounds that need a home, and they must find a home together. April and May are sisters, they are a year apart in age but same parents. They are absolutely BEAUTIFUL little girls, however they are my dads pets and they have never been taught a thing. They need a home out in the country where eventually they can run. These girls would be PERFECT candidates for a dog whisperer, as they know nothing, but they are so very smart. I will post pictures ASAP, and update this post at that time!

    LOCATION: Council Bluffs, Iowa Hi! My name is Quincy and I am STILL looking for my very own furever home and family. I am currently hanging with my foster family in Iowa and they are really sweet, but I REALLY want a home of my own. I am about 10 years old and have a loving, cuddly personality. My back legs are a bit wobbly and will never be perfect, but they have definitely improved since I lost some weight! I was kinda fat when my foster family took me in, but they have me on low cal food and I'm getting exercise so I'm doing great. 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)

He can be nippy with very small children (thanks to his prior experience with some kids who weren't very nice to him). He's a lap dog, very happy and a pretty calm disposition - not 'Chihuahua-like'. So cute! T-Dog is still working on potty training, so his new family will need to be consistent and patient with him on that. He is currently living in a foster home and they have reported that if they didn't already have a couple of dogs, they would be keeping him.

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)

    Scrappy is a family dog best with adults. We had 2 children since getting him and he doesn't care for them (ages 3 & 1, Growls at them and will snap if they look like they will hurt him). The picture is him with my mom and this is what he likes 'to be the center of your world' they had a dog as well who submitted to his will and they got along fine. Once he gets to know his future owner I think he will be fine and if only paired with an adult(2) that has older children would be a great mix. We do love him but have another baby on the way.

Great Pyrenees    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We are in search of a new home for Luke because he cannot be kept indoors. He is terribly anxious with storms and has caused thousands (literally) of dollars worth of damage to our home. I cannot seem to keep him in a kennel and he needs a home where he can run and be somewhere safe during rain. He is the sweetest and most gentle dog I have ever known. He loves kids and loves to run.

    NOAH is an affectionate and energetic boy who loves to play with Casey, who is at the same foster home. He is a 70-lb. dog, 6-year-old pit bull terrier. Noah has been waiting a long time and it is so unfair that he does not have a family or person of his own. Noah has not been around kids so he needs to find an adult-only home. He should be the only male dog, but he is very good with most females, even bossy ones! Can you provide a safe and loving home for this deserving 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)

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)

    My name is Lexi and it is believed I may have some Beagle in me. I am about two and a half years old. I am a very sweet girl and I am housebroken. I am food aggressive so I need someone that can work on that with me. I am also an escape artist and I scare strangers when they come near my house. If you can keep me contained and crate me to feed me then all will be good.

Neapolitan Mastiff    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    All of us office volunteers are lucky enough to have a new office worker among us. She doesn't do filing but does lay by the file cabinets so that accounts for something right? She occasionally dribbles on paperwork but is willing to lick the drool off. Yeah, that doesn't work real well but we are so happy to have Bacall exploring new areas that we excuse anything. Bacall has made so much progress but still has a ways to go. She is still very shy with strangers. She loves to go for walks now but will still hesitate at doorways. We enjoy working with her. She is just a pleasure to be with and has so much heart! Bacall is a 5 year old ... (Read More)blue Neopolitan Mastiff. She weighs just over 80 pounds. Bacall needs a home that will understand her shyness and be willing to work with her. If you are interested in adopting Bacall, please complete our adoption application at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com/adoption.html Thanks! (Less)

She is kennel trained but would much rather prefer a bed next to yours! She is house trained and does well outside a kennel without supervision in the home. She is spayed, utd on shots and ready for her furever home!!!

Foxhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Rocky. He is about two years old and is probably a Foxhound. He is a beautiful boy. He is completely housebroken and is well behaved in the house. In typical hound fashion he has lots of energy. He has always been an indoor dog and would not do well as an outdoor only dog. He does have the hound bark but he does not use it excessively. He gets over excited with kids and will jump in their face so we are looking for a home with no small children.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    I am George. I am about 3 years old and am a lab mix. I have not had a very easy life. In July of last year I was diagnosed with Heartworm. I underwent the nasty treatments it took to get me well and I have recovered. I was severely neglected in my prior home and I am really wishing for a miracle that I find a family who will love me and give me the chance to love them back. My new family needs to make sure I stay on Heartworm medication all Summer to assure I don't get Heartworm again. I tend to get a little snappy with small children when they get right in my face so probably not a home with young children would be best for me.

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!
