Rescue Me ID: 16-12-01-00484Rosie (female)

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Rosie is an 8 year old, 25 pound Beagle. Her temperament is exceptional. She is one of the few dogs who is good with everyone. This is a dog that could easily walk into your home and you would think she had been there all her life. She knows the routine of a home and the joy of a soft dog bed. Rosie is perfectly housetrained and has never even had an accident at her foster home. Typically Beagles can be pretty vocal, not Rosie. If she barks, there is a reason. Rosie likes to go for long walks and walks nicely beside you. She does well in the car, she looks around until she gets bored and then lays down and softly snores on the seat ... (Read More)beside you. Rosie will go in a kennel but doesn't like to be kenneled. She flipped the latch on her crate the second day in her foster home. When her foster mom got home from work she was asleep on the couch, nothing was disturbed but apparently she prefers the couch for her afternoon naps. Before coming into rescue, Rosie was a stray and had been on her own for a couple months. A lady was leaving food out for her and let Rosie sleep in her garage when it started getting below freezing at night. Little Rosie just wanted back in a house and needed some help. She had a hernia on her lower abdomen that almost touched the ground, an abscess on her neck that was as large as a human palm and badly needed some dental care. She was infested with fleas and didn't know where to scratch next. Rosie is now flea free, her hernia has been fixed, antibiotics took care of the abscess on her neck and her teeth are all pretty. She was very good natured about all her flea baths and vet care. Rosie seemed to know we were trying to help her. Rosie is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested and microchipped. Rosie likes sniffing around her yard and would love a home with a fenced in yard. If you would like to meet Rosie, please start the adoption process by completing the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Rosie please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Adopters within one hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-01-00479Roxy (female)

Chihuahua 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 

    Roxy is an 18 month old, 11 pound tripawd Chihuahua Terrier mix. She is very social and outgoing. Roxy is a sweetheart who loves everyone she meets. She willingly gives kisses to strangers and does great with other dogs and cats. Roxy was a stray in tiny Gurdon, Arkansas. She was found with an old elbow injury. Small city shelters barely have the funds to vaccinate their animals and don't have funds for any medical needs so Fur Fun Rescue stepped up. It took several volunteer Pilots and Paws pilots to get her to us. One of the pilots worked really hard to get her to us. He got grounded because of weather and spent the night in a tiny ... (Read More)little airport in Missouri with Roxy and took off the next morning when it was safe to fly again. After arriving in Iowa Roxy saw Dr. Brian Darrow at the Anamosa Vet Clinic. Roxy's elbow was painful to her and could not be repaired so Dr. Darrow amputated her leg. Now Roxy is a tripawd. The day after her surgery Roxy was running around. Roxy hadn't really used her right front leg in probably a year so she never missed it. Roxy is very playful but also likes to be help and cuddled. At night she sleeps curled up close to her people. Roxy is perfectly housetrained and has never had an accident at her foster home. Roxy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Roxy would like a forever home with a fenced in yard and kids over 12. If you would like to meet Roxy, please start the adoption process by completing the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Roxy please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Adopters within one hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-01-00473Sissy (female)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

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

    This beautiful little Rottweiler is Sissy. She is a small Rottie and only weighs 55 pounds. Sissy was born January 12th, 2015 so she isn't even 2 years old yet. She will probably be 60-65 pounds when she matures and fills out. Sissy started her life being sold by a breeder with her sister Sassy. The people who purchased them from the breeder quickly fell on hard times and could not afford to feed themselves or their dogs. Both girls were emaciated when they were owner surrendered. The girls were chained up in a yard with log chains and had very little attention. These girls are thriving in their foster home. They love attention from ... (Read More)people and like cuddling close and having their bellies rubbed. Many of the Rottweiler breed characteristics fit Sissy. She is good natured, obedient, and intelligent. It's clear nobody worked with Sissy as a young pup. Sissy knows how to sit but has the typical fifteen second attention span of most puppies. She is eager to please as soon as he understands what it is you want her to do. Sissy is learning to walk nicely by your side on a leash but isn't there all the time yet. There are squirrels and bunnies to watch and she loses focus because she is still a baby and doesn't have much life experience off a chain yet. Sissy and her new family would greatly benefit from a basic obedience class. She needs someone committed to working with her and finishing her training. Sissy needs a fenced yard to safely run and play. Her forever home should not have a cat, Rottweilers usually think they are fun squeaky toys. Any children in her home need to be over 12 so she doesn't knock them over by accident. Sissy is house trained and crate trained. She is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, heartworm tested and microchipped. If you are interested in meeting Sissy, please start the adoption process by completing the adoption application on our website at www.furfunrescue.org. If you have any questions about Sissy, please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $250.

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

    Meet Mandy! Mandy is a Boston Terrier thought to be between 7 and 9 years old. However, she looks more like a puppy than a dog 7-9 years old. She weighs 15 pounds. Mandy came to rescue from a breeder when her milk did not come in after giving birth. Her pups were taken away and she was sent to rescue. She is being fostered in Iowa City, IA. Mandy is just about the happiest and sweetest dog you will ever meet. She loves people and gets along great with other dogs.

(Read More)great on a leash and enjoys going for walks and meeting new people and other dogs. Shes a social girl. About the only thing Mandy doesnt like much are cats! NO CATS for Mandyshe would rather chase them and might hurt them! Mandy is very good about going potty when she goes outside, but she doesnt quite know to give potty cues that she has to go outside so she still needs monitoring in the house. A little more work and she will get there. Mandy is kennel trained. Can you give Mandy her loving forever home? Mandy has been spayed, given all of her vaccinations and is microchipped. If you are interesting in adopting please go to www.rescueaboston.com for an online application. If you have questions about Mandy, please contact Lynn at 319-530-1897.

He needs to find a home ASAP as he is getting a little irritable about being locked in a kennel for going on 8 weeks. He will require a firm owner - he does know basic commands but is pretty stubborn about listening. Part of that may be just because of the length of ... (Read More)time he has been confined. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-25-00080Frida (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Ms. Frida is looking for a new home. Her prior owner did a DNA on her and she is German Shepherd and Red Heeler. She is a jealous dog of other animals in the home so would need to be the only dog in the home. It is also reported that she is dominant with small children (never harmed a child but the best guess is she is using her herding instincts and trying to keep them where she wants them). So no small children in the home with this pretty girl. She is just over two years old, she is housebroken, current on her shots, spayed and she can really 'fly'. She would be an excellent Frisbee dog with a little bit of work. As you can see she is ... (Read More)pretty sad being here in the shelter - her wish is a home for the holidays. (Less)

    Hi, my name is Gypsy. I'm 20 months old and weigh 55 pounds. I don't mean to brag, but I'm a really good girl. My coat is very soft and sleek. I'm a mutt and proud of it. My foster mommy sent in a DNA test and they confirmed it. I'm %BD Staffordshire Terrier, %BC Rottweiler, 1/8 Boxer, and 1/8 Labrador Retriever. I came into rescue because my former family had young children to raise and didn't have enough time for me. I'm eager to please my people and like attention. I'll let you rub my belly as long as you want. I know how to sit and walk well on a leash. I do pull when I see something that gets me excited like a squirrel, I just ... (Read More)can't help myself. I am fully housetrained and do not have any accidents. I'm well behaved in the house and you don't have to worry about me destroying anything. I like to play with the other big dogs in my foster home. I'd love to go through obedience classes with someone and then on to agility. Who knows what my talents might be! I'm spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped.

    Alli is a lovable family pet, unfortunately due to what I believe is separation anxiety has worn on me very much. She has chewed a wire crate and the plastic bottom to where it is unusable. Bought a new one that was stronger metal and it's held up. She is potty trained and is obedient, does basic commands. As much as we love having her, I can't handle the danger she does on my house any longer, ruined my new flooring in the kitchen by the back door, jumped out the window through the screen twice and tore the second story window screen once, chewed blinds up, dug at my wood door and caused lots of damage plus the trim also. I've tried many ... (Read More)options. If I can't find a rescue placement soon I'll have to see about a shelter, as much as my heart shatters at the thought I am at my end and I can't keep going like this. Someone please help. (Less)

He is a big boy. He needs to learn manners as he still has a ton of energy and is still very jumpy and very mouthy. He does have a lot of coat so will require some work on his coat on a regular basis. He is housebroken, neutered, current on his shots and micro-chiped. He will need plenty of space to run and get some of that energy worked out. He does appear to be fine with other dogs. Not sure on cats but if his energy level is any indication it would be ...

    Zeus is an 8 year old Rat Terrier. Unfortunately his owner could no longer keep him so he is here with us looking for a good home to care for him and love him.

He is neutered, current on his shots and will be micro-chipped before he goes home. He is not one that warms up instantly - you have to give him a little time to adjust. He was here for three days before any of us here could handle him - he was scared and very confused. His adoption ... (Read More)fee is $50.00.

Fox Terrier Mix    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 

    Benny is an 11 year old Fox Terrier mix who was taken to animal control, with his two siblings, when his owner could no longer care for them. After his two siblings were adopted Benny was alone and was not thriving. He was losing weight, stressed, scared, and confused. That's when we stepped in to get him into a foster home where he is now safe, warm, and eating like a champ. Benny is a quiet guy who loves to be near people. He truly wants for nothing more than a spot on your lap or, on a soft place near you. He rides great in the car, walks just fine on a leash, and expresses his happiness with rolls in the grass. Benny gets along well ... (Read More)with other dogs and cats, people of all ages, and quite frankly just wants to be warm, comfortable, safe, and fed. He likes the simple things in life. The only things Benny does NOT like are kennels and not knowing where his people have gone.

If you have questions about Benny, please contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-15-00516Ohren (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi everyone! My name is Ohren! That's German for 'ears' because I have such big ears, haha! I'm a three year old neutered male and am up to date on vaccines and microchipped. My previously family gave me up, but my foster family has no idea why! They say I'm the sweetest boy they've ever met! And I'm a goofball! I still have a lot of energy for only being three years old, but am the biggest cuddle bug too! I guess I don't know how big I am (about 75lbs) because I like to sit right on top of you and give kisses. I'll even snuggle up in bed! I'd really like that wherever I go. My favoritist game is to play fetch. I love my balls but they ... (Read More)always seem to fall apart so quick so make sure you have a lot of backups! When I'm restless or excited, I get kinda mouthy and will use my teeth to tug on your hands and stuff - I'm not trying to hurt you, but sometimes I don't realize how big those pearly whites are! Mom has been working with me on this and I calm down pretty quickly. I get along really well with my doggy foster brother. He's an alpha so he'll correct my inappropriate play when he needs to. We play tag and ruff house around the yard. I seem to get along with most dogs, but mom had this crazy puppy over for a visit and I wasn't super fond of him to begin. He was crrrraaazzzyyy and tried jumping all over me! Idk what his deal was, BOL! The only issue I have is when other dogs comes near my food! I don't like anyone to bother me when I'm eating and have let everyone know! So I really need an owner who can deal with my food guarding and ensure I have a safe place to eat. I don't seem to care about the water dish and will even share, but my food dish has to be put away. Because of this, I will need a home without children! Everyone in my home will need to understand that they have to be very careful around me during feeding times. Oh, oh! And speaking of food - I was a bit skinny when I came into the rescue so have been gaining weight but have some pounds to go. Right now mom is feeding me 3 cups twice a day! I love treats and take them gently out of your hand. I'll even sit pretty for you to get them. Even though I'm super friendly, I do like to be the protector of the home. I'll bark when someone comes to the house but quickly quite when I get some attention from the visitors. My previous owners said I was good with cats but my foster family hasn't tested that with me so we're just not too sure! Overall, I'm a healthy guy, but do have really itchy ears. My mom has me on a grain and chicken free diet to help with any food allergies. She gives me Benadryl on the days I seem to be extra scratchy. The vet has checked me out and I don't have any ear infections, so maybe it's seasonal! I know all the basic commands and correct very easily (except if I'm mad about someone being near my food). I know sit, stay, lay down, come, shake, no/down, bed time, kennel, outside/inside, and hungry. I'm crate trained, but can also be left to roam the house. I also walk really nicely on the leash. I'm super smart and definitely a people pleaser. My ideal home would be an active family with only a couple people as larger groups seem to overstimulate me. Visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application and learn more about our adoption process. Our dogs are all fostered in volunteer homes. Meets and greets are only available by appointment after the application has been processed. All of our dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed.

We list the dog's breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, temperament, and personality of the dog - in some cases it's purely a guess. (Less)

    Max is a 3 year old purebred Olde English Bulldogge. He weighs 45 lbs. He loves to run. He needs a fenced in yard.

He needs a home without other animals or kids, because of the aggression. He does not do good with birds, either- he tries to knock over the cage to get to them. He knows basic commands but would benefit from more thorough training and an experienced owner. He eats well with me, he's very loved. He snores when he sleeps! He sleeps in the bed. ... (Read More)He likes to go riding in the car, but will try to 'catch' the other cars. He will chase cars, so always needs to be leash outside. He loves to play with his toys. He's mostly housetrained, but can have accidents, which may be due to the other dogs. He's not a licker/kisser. He likes to get backrubs and scratched! He needs a loving home. I will be very strict about where he goes. He needs to be an inside dog and loved. I love him very much and want the best for him. (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 

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

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We want to show you what will be coming up in the future. This young girl ended up in a kill shelter - very pregnant - and no place to go and no one to save her life - until we were able to commit to take her. As most of you have heard in the past - Addie takes several of our momma's that are expecting pups or who come to us with young pups and fosters them until they are old enough to go to their forever homes. She returned Piper's puppies to us yesterday so they could go home this week and last night she got Bailey. For anyone who is scared of, or who think Pit Bulls are not a loving breed - you will want to follow this girl through ... (Read More)her time with us - she is a perfect example of a Pit/Boxer personality. The first picture is the night we picked her up and the second picture is her settling into her foster home. Addie said she walked in and made herself right at home. Addie will keep us updated with her. Good luck Bailey - this is the only time you will have to go through having puppies. (Less)

    Look at sweet Sandi, she was dumped on a country road and was skin and bones with two babies in tow. She has put on quite a bit of weight and looks so much better now. She is only about a year and a half old. She had a 'light positive' heartworm test result and has been started on treatment. She will be rechecked next week. If she is still on treatment when she goes home that will be sent home with her. She is spayed, current on shots and micro-chipped. The best guess is that she is a Black Mouth Cur. She gets along with other dogs except for feeding time and if the other dog goes near her food she does get upset about it - we are ... (Read More)assuming this is due to her previous lack of available food for her and her babies. We do not know if she is housebroken as she has been living outside. She is a sweet girl who deserves a great life. (Less)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids)

    Socks is a three year old Rottweiler. He is still very energetic. He is reported as housebroken and gets along well with other dogs. He does have an issue with his dad who lived in the same home but part of that may be because he wasn't neutered. We have him scheduled for a vet visit the first of the week where he will be neutered and heartworm checked as well as a full physical. He is a little touchy when you mess with his rear end. He does have a history of having issues with one child (probably about 12) but we seriously question what was being done to the dog as we see no temperament issues with him. He is a little testy when he ... (Read More)is eating but we believe with some diligence he can be broken of that or alternatively should be fed in his crate. He is crate trained. Because of his history he needs to go to an experienced Rottie (or similar breed) owner who can work with him and not allow him to be the dominant in the home. He just turned 3 the end of October.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

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

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

    We are trying to find a new home for Tesla, our 2 year old German Shepherd/Husky mix. He's a well behaved, lovable dog. He's house trained, runs well on a leash, and knows the commands come, sit, stay, down, bring it, and leave it. He loves to run, play fetch and tug, and go swimming. However, he's fearful of people he doesn't know and will bark and growl. He usually calms down after a bit and will let them pet him. Once he knows someone he's fine with them. He's good with kids he knows, but has a difficult time calming down around kids he doesn't know as they're usually fearful of his growling. He is good with other dogs and cats. We're ... (Read More)looking for a home that does not have children, does have a yard, and is full of plenty of love. Tesla is neutered and up to date on his shots.

If you are interested in getting to know Tesla please contact Nikki at 319-383-4854. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-17-00188Winter (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Winter - she is about two years old and is a Border Collie mix. Rather than give you our limited knowledge of her we are gong to post what her foster home had to say about her: Beware this girl with steal your heart and your socks! Winter is a very active, playful, girl who loves fetch, toys, and socks. She is a bit of a 'busy bee' that is into everything and wants to be a part of whatever you are doing. Still is very much a puppy, in spite of the fact they've guessed her age at 2 years. She loves to chew, so will need some chew toys. She also enjoys snuggling on the couch and belly rubs, once she has gotten some of her energy ... (Read More)out. Winter is smart and food motivated. She has learned 'sit' and 'down'. These commands are still new, so she still needs hand signals and treats at least some of the time. She is also learning to walk well on a leash, and to sit and wait to go through doors. She is crate trained, and will go into her crate for CHEESE. Also Winter is used to peanut butter in a Kong toy which helps entertain her when she is crated. She is working on being house broken, and has not had an accident in the house in over a week. Winter can be a bit shy and slow to warm up to strangers, and new situations. But once she knows you she is a love. While I do not have children or other dogs, she is reported to be kid and dog friendly. In fact she was the' go-to' dog at the shelter to test other dogs for dog friendless. Winter was loose in a cotton field and after much effort to catch her without success, they finally caught her in a live trap. They thought she was one of the farmer's dogs. She was not, but he took her for a while, but brought her back to the shelter saying she did not want to be a farm dog. It was said she was 'attached to him at the hip.' I did not know how to write it up but thought it was important to pass on that she is afraid of men's boots and dress shoes, and even my husband Air Force Uniform. We have worked on this and she is better but it is still an issue. She adores my husband but the first time be put on his Air Force uniform with his boots she barked and would not come near him. We used food and praise to slowly get her over this. There was vast improvement after our first session, and she was nearly over it by our third session. It however did not translate to his other boots and dress shoe that she is still some what afraid of as we did not have time to repeat it enough with them. She is fine if she can been on the couch were the shoes can't get her. He can sit beside her and she is all wiggles and happiness. She will now wiggle and greet him in his AF uniform even with the boots on, normally with out any hesitation. (Less)

    Bravo is fostered in Urbandale IA through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org Bravo is estimated to be six years old and weighs 9 lbs. He came to United Yorkie Rescue in September 2016, from a shelter. He was most likely left at a shelter due to health issues, which have been resolved. While in the shelter, he showed some aggression. However, in the months he has been in a foster home environment, his behavior is much better. Due to showing aggressive behavior at the shelter, UYR was asked to take over his care. Bravo's forever home will need to be close to foster mom's home, a local adoption. As Bravo's new to our rescue, ... (Read More)and has had some issues we're taking time to evaluate him and work through any behavioral issues he may have. His aggression issues have not been a problem since he's come to UYR, his issues seem to be a result of stress., being sick and abandoned which would cause most dogs to be afraid and defensive. Bravo is a cuddle buddy, he would rather be in your lap, or right beside you then anywhere else. At this time grooming has been the only 'challenge' identified.

    'Hi! I'm Journey's foster Mom. I wanted to tell you about my latest four legged kid :) Journey is a 21 month old Black Lab mix. What the mix is we don't know, a large'breed of some sort is our best guess. This big boy came to us in pretty sad shape. He was an owner surrender living in an outdoor pen with three other dogs and hadn't been taken care of very well. Journey was a bag of bones and weighed only 55 pounds, he had a flea infestation, and patches of'fur missing from'malnutrition. Due to a poor sporadic diet he was just plain tired and worn down. Journey is now a healthy 63 pounds, his fur has grown back in and ... (Read More)the'fleas are long gone.' His stamina and energy have returned in full force. Journey is a happy boy and loves to cuddle. He really thinks that he is a lap dog and tries his best to fit himself there. Journey is always overjoyed to see you when you come home from'work and soaks up all the love and attention that we can give him. ' I have three dogs and he gets along with all of them, he is even able to coax my'old grumpy male into play!'Journey loves all 4 legged critters, dog, puppies, cats, he does ok with all of them. Journey hasn't been around kids a lot but we do know that once kids start to giggle all he wants to do is'crawl in their lap and give them puppy kisses! Journey caught on to house training very quickly. He is a really good boy in the house and also crate trained.' Journey does love to run at top speed now that he is feeling better so a fence yard would be best for this boy to help work off his'new found energy.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max! I am a 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd/Treeing Walker Coonhound 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 best fit ever for you?!

But he is still an active guy who loves to be outdoors. Riley has very soft fur that you can pet while he lays beside you on the couch. He is also a very soft water bottle substitute when you go to bed. He likes to sleep next to you. He may need some help getting on the bed because he has very short legs and he could stand to lose a few pounds. Riley loves to get outdoors and taking frequent short walks would be good for him. Riley doesn't really ... (Read More)play with dog toys, but enjoys being with his people. He will follow you around the house and the yard. He would love someone to be home a lot, but he does fine when left at home. Riley would love to have a fenced yard so he can be outdoors and monitor the happenings in the neighborhood. Because he is an older dog he would prefer a quieter and slower paced home. Riley gets along with most other dogs his size but is a little nervous about larger dogs. Riley is housetrained and is food motivated. He knows to sit for his treats and food bowl. He quickly picks up on the routines of the house. He is the kind of dog you can talk to and he will look up at you as if he understands every word. Riley is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and heartworm tested. He also recently had his teeth cleaned. Riley does best on grain-free food otherwise he gets kind of itchy.

    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)

She has always wanted to dominate our other bulldogs. She loved Thor as a puppy and tolerated all his play now that he has grown to equal size we can't keep them in same room, let them sleep together or walk them together. Bella will be 3, is spayed and microchipped. She loves deer antlers, is my constant pal, sleeps next to me each night. There will be a rehoming fee and she will only go to a loving family.who will love her as much as I do. PM me for details.

    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 ...

    Ember is a great loving family pet. Her only draw back is that she does not like other dogs. Though she has never bitten or attacked another dog, she can be quite aggressive toward them. We have been able to walk her within the widh of the street from other dogs with reasonable success. She is wonderful toward people and has never shown aggression to humans. She waits patiently for her food, you can take her bone away and she will not growl or bark. Few to no accidents in the house and has not had a chewing incedent in a couple years. We do not kennel her when we are no home either. Just a wonderful pet. The problem comes from ...

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.

Black and Tan Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

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)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

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

    Paco is fostered in Bettendorf IA 52722 through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. To find more more about Paco, contact his foster mamma through the question/inquiry link. 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, Heartworm Positive 

    Timber came to us with 12 babies in tow. She was scheduled to be euthanized in a kill shelter and all of you here on Facebook pulled together and helped find additional foster homes so her and her babies weren't left behind. Not only did she come in with babies but she was also heartworm positive and she underwent treatment in April for it and has recovered. 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. ... (Read More)Since weaning the babies we have not seen that protective nature but she is still not a fan at all of cats. Her papers indicate she is a Chow/Lab mix. She is housebroken and will do fine with male dogs if properly introduced. She does great with kids. She deserves a family of her own to love her. You won't be sorry if you adopt her. (Less)

American Bulldog    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
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!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs are red-green colorblind. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
