Animal ID: 1773 & 1774Lady & Chief (female)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Lady and Chief, my beautiful four year old brother and sister foster pups. This bonded pair are an absolute hoot!! They enjoy spending their time very close together....they play together, do their tricks together, get their treats together, get love and attention together, usually sleep only a few feet away from each other, and even stay by each other when they go potty. Lady is a female and seems to be the 'boss' of the two. She does not care for other dogs and can be aggressive when confronted by another dog. When she barks, they both bark. When she growls, they both growl. When she runs, they both run. Lady likes to play catch ... (Read More)and seems to be very proud of herself when she is praised. She loves to have your attention and loves to be petted. Chief is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. He is very submissive and does just fine around cats and other dogs. He absolutely loves to cuddle on the couch and have his belly rubbed. He is an overachiever when it comes to getting 'treats'. He learns very quickly and is happy to please. These guys are super spoiled and absolutely love to cuddle and get attention. They both have super soft coats, which makes it extremely hard to not want to continuously pet them!! They both also talk to you. It is a funny little growl that they do when they are excited to see you. So, so cute!!! They are learning to walk on a leash and can sit, shake, and are learning to turn circles. They love to run and play outside and will come when called. They are both happy to be with men, women, kids, and toddlers but need a home where they will be the only dogs . I cannot say enough about these guys - SUPER AWESOME pair of wiggle butts!! Lady and Chief are approx. 50#, microchipped, altered and up to date on vaccinations. The adoption rate is $325 each, but there is a $100 discount for adopting them as a bonded pair. Please fill out our adoption application: http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application All adoption fees are used for future rescue efforts (Less)

Lab    Age: Senior

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

    Bella is a very sweet 10 year old chocolate lab. Inside she is very calm and outside she acts like a puppy. She did have her ACL replaced in 2013 and has done excellent in her recovery. I do limit her excessive running free (most just side to side motions). We just had our fourth child and are moving out of state to a place that will not be suitable for her. We also feel after seeing her at my sisters (without so much noise ans choas from young kids) how happy she was again. If she didn't travel so much, we'd send her there. She tends to just hide from the commotion now. So, we'd love to be able to give her a home that would allow more one ... (Read More)on one time and the calmness she seems to desire. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    Zeus is 1 yr and 4 month old neutered purebred German Shepherd male. He is a great dog that is loyal, affectionate, and protector. He is completely house trained, kennel trained and knows most of the basic commands. Sometimes, he's to smart for his own good. I've had to make the very difficult decision to rehome him. We are moving to a property that does not allow the German Shepherd breed. Zeus has only been around large breed dogs, so I am unsure how he would react around smaller breeds. He is very protective of his home and owner. He shows his dominance when people come to the home. If you show fear towards him, he tends to be a ... (Read More)little more aggressive. If you are confident, it will take a few minutes, but he will warm up to you. I would advise a home with no small children. He does good with my grand children, but with a new home, again, I am not sure how he would do. I would love to arrange a time to introduce you to Zeus. Please let me know if you are interested.

Pekingese    Age: Adult

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

    Doodah has been a part of Second Chance for over two years. He came in horribly afraid. He tried to bite for several weeks. Progress was very slow for Doodah. One of our very best temp home moms, Bev, offered to take him and work with him. He has been with her for a long time and Bev has worked hard to get him socialized. Bev tells us that he will let her pick him up and allows her to brush and pet him. He will sleep on her lap and chest. Bev keeps him on a lead so she can get to him easier and not frighten him. Doodah loves small treats and will put his front paws up on Bev's knees to get a good treat! He will sniff and lick her ... (Read More)fingers to let her know he wants a treat. Bev does not have a fenced in yard so Doodah has had to learn the boundaries and he has done very well with this. Doodah follows many directions but he does not know any 'tricks'. Doodah is a 7 year old Pekingese. He weighs about 11.2 pounds. Doodah's adoption fee is $175.00. Due to Doodah's shyness we are asking that any potential adopters visit with him and Bev together a couple times so they can get to know him. You can apply to adopt Doodah at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com/adoption-app.html Thanks! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-06-00123Dokken (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Dokken. He is under a year old and it appears he has kind of been tossed around from home to home. He is absolutely terrified here at the shelter. Upon surrender we were told he is a Border Collie/Beagle mix. He gets along with other dogs, cats and kids. Unfortunately it appears he hasn't lived in one place long enough to get housebroken so his forever home will have to work on that. Upon arrival to us he has had no previous shots, has not yet been neutered. All of that will be brought current and done in the next few days so he can start looking for a new home. He isn't a very big guy - only about 30 lbs. Our adoption ...

Siberian Husky Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Johnny is your typical husky! He is just a few months over a year old. He weighs 70+ pounds. He has one blue eye and one brown. He likes to run and play, but unfortunately has lived in a kennel his entire life. That is not a good and fair life for a dog. He knows basic commands. He has no problems taking a bath. He's good with little kids, but sometimes doesn't know how big he actually is and knocks them down! He needs a home with lots of room to run and somebody that understands a husky!

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-03-00242Manny (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    You may remember this guy - it is Manny. He was out to foster for about three months last year and then found what we believed to be a home that would give him the time and space he needed to come the rest of the way out of his shell. He was doing well with the stability of his foster home and a regular routine. Unfortunately he got adopted in November and rather than wait for him to adjust (which everyone knew would not be quick) they decided to drug him starting the first of December. The drugging did nothing but amplify him being afraid of everything and then he went back to having accidents inside when he was drugged. He got more ... (Read More)fearful of things and appeared to be drugged enough to more or less be in a zombie state. His condition when he came back in was very upsetting for everyone. We immediately consulted with the vet and got him off the drugs. It took a little while for him to get past the shakes, inability to control his bodily functions, to stand without wobbling and then through all of the mess of everything making him sick at his stomach as he was working the drugs out of his system. He has lost quite a bit of weight but we are giving him plenty to eat to make up for it. He is now doing better and we believe he is very thankful to be back at the shelter. He is still very afraid of strangers - men more so than women - he loves to go on walks as long as you work him through the stages of everything being strange - once he learns the route he does great. He gets along great with other dogs. Not sure on cats but probably not a good idea. He is NOT aggressive. He needs to live in a structured environment where he can learn what to expect. We do not believe he could adjust to a home with young kids where there is a lot of commotion. He is a big boy and is probably a Lab/Great Dane mix. He is 2 1/2 years old. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-03-00190Marley (male)

Boxer 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 

    We really thought the third adoption for this beautiful boy was the charm - but no such luck. This is Marley. His reasoning for three returns after his adoption are always the same 'he is an escape artist'. He is almost 4 years old but still has a ton of energy in typical Boxer fashion. He does fine with other dogs - can not do cats and is fine with kids. Unfortunately this last return is a little different - when he escaped a neighbor tried to grab him and he nipped them. He obviously needs a fenced in yard BUT that doesn't seem to be enough - he needs to find someone who is VERY conscious about opening the door to where he can get ... (Read More)into an area with no containment. He isn't a bad dog - just lots of energy and LOVES to run. Little kids in the house won't work with him because of the running out the door when it gets opened. He can not live in Osage, Iowa because of his 'bite history'. We don't see a mean bone in his body but if he is focused on running and gets grabbed apparently he reacts. He is housebroken. He is neutered and all of his shots are current. If you think you have what it takes to get this boy plenty of exercise and keep him contained please go to our website and complete an adoption application. www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

    My name is Raven. I am a pistol and love to play, play and then play some more. I am at PFP looking for a home. I am young with a date of birth of 1/26/18 but I am one smart cookie. I am a typical puppy and I need my own family to teach me all the things that the bigger dogs know. They tell me I am a mix - but not sure I know what that is - I just know I am stinking adorable and have an awesome personality. They tell me I will be spayed this week - not sure what that is but it sounds fun. They have stuck me around here with a few shots - ouch - and they put this thing in me called a micro-chip explaining to me that if I am a bad girl ... (Read More)and run away that it will help me get home. I get along with other dogs but I am a little bossy - even with dogs bigger than me. I need an active home with maybe a dog a little older than me to do what they call around here as 'put me in my place'. They speak in strange terms around here some days. I understand food, treats, love and play - those I have down pat - the rest of it I have to learn - but sure am willing to try if you are. NOTE FROM PFP: If you are interested in adopting Raven her adoption fee is $250.00. She is spayed, current on puppy shots, wormed, current on flea/tick preventative and current on heartworm preventative as well as micro-chipped.

    Giannis was found in Indianola on a country road near Christmas. He's an absolute sweetheart, incredibly good with people and other pets, but he needs more space than I can give him. Ideally, he needs to have a home with a large yard or to be on a farm. He's needs things to chew on -- bones and kongs, he easily destroys squeaky toys -- but he understands what no means. Will only give to someone with room for him to play...

Border Collie 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 

    Murphy is a 14 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix with a sweet temperament and loving disposition. While Murphy would be considered a senior at this stage of the game, he has a playful and youthful heart. Murphy loves to be with people and follows his foster parents all over the house. Once he knows where you are going to hang out he will plop down and watch with a curious eye at whatever you are doing (unless there is food involved'|then he will be right by your side). Murphy is still getting used to dog beds so, at times he will just lay down next to one rather than actually ON the bed. He doesn't get up on furniture (although he ... (Read More)could if he wanted), likes to explore outside and go for walks, and gets along with both other dogs AND cats. He has a few favorite toys that he tosses around a little (he carries his favorite pink owl from place to place) and he prefers people who are home more often than not. Murphy has a few signs of age such as a slower trot, some hearing loss (so he needs a secure, fenced yard), more grunting when he gets up and down, and he has had some teeth and a few cysts removed. Otherwise, he is just a good boy that wants a safe and loving home to spend the rest of his days. Murphy is housetrained, crate trained, up-to-date on vetting, microchipped, neutered, and is currently being treated for Lyme disease. Murphy is ready to be in his forever home! If you would like to meet Murphy, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org.

He has not been cat tested. His adoption fee is $200.00. If you are interested in adopting hlease go to our website at ... (Read More)www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoppplication.

Boxer 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 

    This beautiful boy is Scout. He is a 3 year old Boxer mix who is a nice dog. He is good with kids, housebroken, gets along great with adults, kids, dogs and cats. He is an escape artist so a good height fenced in back yard is highly recommended - and he also needs another dog as a playmate and companion. He is here with us as he could not be contained in the home he was in - he kept getting out and ending up in doggie jail. We believe a big part of his constantly escaping is because he was bored and we think a playmate will help that situation. He is neutered, current on his shots and micro-chipped. He just needs his very own ... (Read More)family. His adoption fee will be $125.00 - if you are interested in him, please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and fill out an application.

Siberian Husky    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 

    Ms. Marlene has finished nursing her puppies and she has been spayed and is now looking for her very own home. She is just a little over a year old and is a Siberian Husky. If you fall in love with her looks - please don't stop there - research the breed carefully - they are best owned by experienced owners. She is not an apartment dog - she has way too much energy for that. She does great with humans of all sizes, is great with other dogs an her foster home reported she seemed to be fine with cats but we would highly recommend that be verified with a cat before someone with a cat adopts her as we have some doubts. She is housebroken. ... (Read More)She is a very nice young girl who passes all temperament testing with flying colors. She is, however, a talker - a huge talker. So if you are looking for 'quiet' that is probably not a word we would use to describe Marlene. If you talk to her she talks back - if you aren't talking to her she talks to you until you do talk to her. So far she hasn't attempted to jump our 6' fences here but she has been looking at the top of them very longingly - almost like she is trying to figure out if she has to climb or jump them. In typical Siberian fashion they are runners - so she will require proper containment in her forever home - with what we would recommend no less than a 6' fence (something other than chain link). She is spayed, current on all of her shots, she is heartworm negative and current on all preventatives and has her micro-chip. Her adoption fee will be $225.00.

    Midnight is a 2 year old, 58 pound Black Lab mix. We aren't sure of her exact breed and she isn't telling. The mahogany on her head and legs tells us she could be part Rottweiler.

Midnight is a confident, social girl who enjoys meeting new people and experiencing new things. Midnight has many things mastered, house and crate training were a piece of cake.

Rescue Me ID: 18-01-09-00352Finn (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    Poor Finn - this boy has been through the ringer. He came to us after being a victim of being stabbed. He went out to foster and got all better and then came back for adoption to the shelter and didn't get adopted. He then went to another foster home. He was there for a couple of weeks. Then someone was interested in adopting him so we did a two week foster to adopt - after the two weeks they decided to adopt him - that lasted a few days and he got returned. So now, he is back at the shelter starting all over. He has some type of an allergy and is very itchy. We had him on medication and were trying a Venison based food to try and ... (Read More)give him some relief. When he got brought back he was out of his pills and out of his food. So we are starting all over again to get his itching under control. :) Apparently he won't go potty on a leash so he will require a fenced in yard - both of his foster homes that we had him in reported he is fully housebroken so we can only assume that his 'accidents' in the house after adoption were because of being on a leash to go potty. He is an 8 year old Shih Tzu who is just a cuddly as they come. He gets along great with other dogs and cats. He loves people. His allergy pills runs about $2.00 a day. He doesn't eat a ton so buying a higher end grain free food isn't much of a factor. There has to be someone who can love this boy and give him an amazing life for the remainder of his years. (Less)

He is housebroken, excellent with kids, good with other dogs, neutered, current on all of his shots and micro-chipped. He just needs a home where he can be kept from escaping. He is kennel trained, loves his treats. He does play rough with other dogs. He is very strong. He will help himself to things if you leave them sitting on the table. He knows his basic ... (Read More)commands (sit and lay down). Does someone have lots of space for this boy to get his exercise? His adoption fee is $150.00. Our adoption application is on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com if you are interested in any pet from Patriots. (Less)

So I'm back with my foster family who takes really good care of me but don't have a whole lot of space for me. I would love to have a backyard that's fenced-in with a really secure ... (Read More)gate so I can run around and have fun and be the dog I should be I could use a little more training I understand sit and lay down but need a little work on some other things.

Australian Kelpie Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Harley is a 5 year old, 45 pound Kelpie. She came to Iowa from Texas after Hurricane Harvey. Harley was homeless before the hurricane and moved north to make room for the dogs that would need to be held so their owners could find them after the storm. Harley needed some help when she arrived in Iowa. She had a small limbal tumor in her left eye and had eye surgery to remove it. Harley also had a painful neck. The vets discovered she had a herniated disc in her neck and did another surgery to fix it. Harley is now happy and healthy and ready to find a home of her own. Harley is a sweet, gentle girl who loves attention. She has great ... (Read More)house manners. Harley has two favorite things in life. Car rides and soft toys. Harley will happily hop in a car and go anywhere with you. She rides shotgun and does great. Harley carries her soft toys everywhere with her and loves to cuddle with them. Since Harley is a Kelpie, she is one of the smartest of all breeds. She is highly intelligent and learns quickly. Her superior intellect combined with her intensity and passion for keeping busy means she needs an owner smarter than she is. Harley's forever home should have a fenced yard and no kids under 10. Kelpie's were bred to herd and she would quickly have small children herded up. Harley would be happiest to be an only dog but would also do well with a calm male dog. A cat would be viewed as a squeaky toy. Harley is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and heartworm tested. If you would like to meet'Harley, please complete the adoption application on our website:'www.furfunrescue.org.' If you have questions about Harley'you can contact'rox@furfunrescue.org'or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only.' Adopters within'two'hours'of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please.' Adoption donation $200.'

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

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

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sassey is about 3 years old and she arrived to us from Texas with 5 babies in tow. She was in a shelter and space had to be made for the Hurricane Harvey dogs and therefore she had to find a place to go or she and her babies would have been euthanized. She came to us.

English Setter Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

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

    Cuddles is full of love and energy. She gets along with other dogs great. Loves kids and adults. Might be a little too high energy for really small children. She still needs to learn some basic manners (such as not jumping). If you are sitting down she thinks she belongs on your lap. She absolutely loves to go on long walks and does great on a leash Her name does suit her. She is probably a Pit Bull mix but she is an absolute poster child for what the breed is supposed to be which is sweet and lovable.

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

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

Dalmatian Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Chubba is still very young. His DOB is 2/13/17. He is a lab/dalmation mix. He lived a miserable six months here on this earth before coming to us and our goal to make the rest of his life a good one. He was 'dumped' way before he was old enough to care for himself. He ended up in an area that was filled with Porcupine and had the needles all over his body - especially his face. He had to be live trapped to get him. He was absolutely terrified and is still leary of humans but is coming around vey slowly. It took almost two months for his sores to heal and for him to 'tolerate' being touched but he is doing better - all physical wounds ... (Read More)are healed and he is now coming to the gates looking for attention, he will not in and out voluntarily without being forced. We put him in with a more outgoing dog and that has helped tremendously. He requires a loving and PATIENT home. He is not a 'love you to death' type of puppy. You will have to earn that love through lots and lots of patience. He does great with other dogs and is getting more and more curious about all of the attention they get. He would probably be best in a home with another dog to help him finish coming out of his shell (a non-aggressive dog of course). He doesn't have a mean bone in his body but as with any fearful dog - he could bite - so therefore no young children for this beautiful baby. His adoption fee is $100.00. If you think you have the patience and love for this young guy, please go to our website and complete an adoption application you will find that at www.patriotsforpets.com He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.

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

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

She needs an owner who can give her the confidence she needs to greet others.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Iowa
    Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs are red-green colorblind.
