Rescue Me ID: 17-04-28-00403Enid (female)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    This is Enid. Her date of birth is 2/20/17. They are reported to be Lab/Golden Retriever mix. They are good size puppies and extremely sweet. They came into us with kennel cough and are finally starting on the uphill swing. Because they have had kennel cough we will not be spaying/neutering them before they go home. They will go home on a spay/neuter contract - which means they either will be returned to us at a date set in the future for spay/neuter or alternatively they will need to get done by the adopter vet and then we will reimburse what we pay for spay/neuter when proof of it being done is provided. We just don't want to put ... (Read More)them under any more stress with anesthesia at this point in time. Everything else is being done except the spay/neuter - puppy shots are current, have been wormed, current on heartguard and micro-chipped. The adoption fee on puppies is $225.00. If you are interested in one of the dogs from Patriots for Pets we recommend you complete an adoption application which you will find on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and then come see if someone steals your heart.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rudy is a Terrier Mix who is about 10 weeks old. He is an active pup who loves to play. He will make an excellent family pet. We have no idea what all he is mixed with but we know there is some Terrier in there somewhere. We are 'guessing' that as an adult he will be between 45 and 55 lbs. That may be a little on the high side but it is just a 'guess'. He will need to learn all the good things a puppy should know - he is a baby. He gets along great with everything and everyone. If you want to play he is your guy. If you are interested in Rudy we recommend you go to our website and fill out an adoption application - ...

    Like the easy life? Then I'm the perfect match for you.

    We want you to meet Polly's Pups. The babies are growing up and doing great. They are eating on their own the majority of the time and it won't be long until they will be looking for forever homes.

If everything stays on schedule the puppies and Polly will be ready for their forever homes around May 19th. There are four girls and three boys in the litter. As they get older we will get each of them posted individually. We can tell you that Polly is a love ... (Read More)and one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet.

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

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

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Corrinn likes attention and comes right to you when you call her name. She enjoys relaxing in someone's lap or even laying beside someone. Corrinn gets along with other dogs but she does like to have her way. She doesn't attack other dogs but will certainly give them a 'look' when they get too pushy with her.

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This happy puppy is Stewie. He is a 10 month old, 24 pound Border Collie and Heeler mix. Stewie likes to play with toys and other dogs. He isn't hyper and quickly settles in for a cuddles. Stewie loves people and wants to please his human. He watches, listens, and learns very quickly. Stewie doesn't have any experience with cats, we are guessing he would probably be scared of them and do fine. He would enjoy an active family with a fenced yard. Stewie came into rescue as an owner surrender. His dad left him with a friend and never came back for him. Stewie is kennel trained, house trained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and micro ...

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hero is about a year old. He is a super sweet dog and needs a loving home. He is probably a 'lab mix'. He has not had the easiest of first years - he appears to have been kicked as he is terrified of feet - even if he is laying on the floor and you put your feet on him he will shake. He is reported as housebroken. He does know sit and smile. He would probably do best in a home without small children based upon his history.

Great Dane    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Beast. He is a one year old Great Dane who is a handful. He absolutely loves to play and doesn't realize how big he really is. One of our volunteers says we need to rename him Casanova because he will just reach up and give you a big sloppy kiss any time he feels like it (which is a lot). From everything we can see he is housebroken - he is friendly with everyone. He does need to learn basic manners as apparently no one has done anything with him. We have not put him with any other dogs to play as we don't have anything his size to do it with so we aren't real sure on his dog compatibility but with his personality we aren't ... (Read More)expecting any issues. In typical Dane fashion he will probably continue to grow some until he is about two years old. Dane's do require some special care, especially after eating, so please make sure you research their health issues and concerns. He is very much puppy and will need a good size area to exercise in. He does jump up on you when he gets excited so be prepared if you come to meet Beast. He has been neutered, is current on his shots, is heartworm negative and micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $225.00. If you are interested in Beast please fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

    This is Bud. He is a little over a year old. We believe he may be a Beagle/Boxer mix. He is pretty shy here at the shelter. We believe once he gets out of the shelter he will have a totally different personality. From what we can tell he is housetrained. He is good with kids. Waits on humans to not make a threatening move on him and then will approach. He does get along with other dogs. We have no idea on cats. He is a quiet guy - we haven't heard a sound out of him in over a week. He just needs a calm home to love him and not threaten him.

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

    Carrie is one amazing girl. She is about a year old. What breed is she you ask - good question - we would like to know that ourselves. She 'may' have some heeler in her - she 'may' have some shepherd in her but your guess is absolutely as good as ours. Carrie was abandoned along with 11 other dogs and she survived on her own for quite a while. Normally when this occurs it takes a long time to get the dog socialized - not in Carrie's case - she is super social and wanting to make up for all of the lost attention. She is good with other dogs and great with kids. Unknown on cats. She isn't a very big girl at only about 40 pounds. She ... (Read More)should gain some more weight as she is pretty thin but she isn't going to get any taller. We believe she is housebroken - her foster home said she did amazing and we have seen no accidents here in a week. She is spayed, heartworm negative, current on her shots and micro-chipped. (Less)

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

    Fritz is about 8 months old. He is a German Shorthaired Pointer. However, apparently no one wanted him because he was afraid of loud sounds (he startles) and therefore couldn't hunt. He is an amazing dog who is very sweet and does not have the typical GSP high energy. He is a pretty calm guy. He gets along great with other dogs. Has not been cat tested. He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and just looking for a family to love him.

I am a pretty tall girl but still pretty thin - some good groceries are in my future. I get along great with other dogs and since I got here Robo is my best friend. Everyone around here thinks I am housebroken as I have been a very good girl. I really like kids but just remember I am a pretty good sized girl with lots of play left in me. I have never been around one of those little fury things that go 'meow' and according to my friends hiss and slap at you. Not sure if I would like that or not. I ...

    This is Abbie - she is the one that was at Britt as a stray. The owner has been located and they don't want her back so we won't be holding her on a stray hold. When she first came in we thought she might have mange considering how bad the sores were on her back - raw and pussy. After 24 hours of treatment with topical medication and flea treatment it looks 100% better. Her prior owner says she does have a flea allergy. We will be taking her into the vet this week for a physical and shots and spay if necessary. We will also have an idea on how old she is.

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Max is a high profile pet. Potential adopters must call to set up an interview with an officer. 712-644-3003. Must provide a vet reference. If a renter, landlord permission for a large breed dog is a must. A privacy fence is preferable. We prefer a home where he is the only pet. He likes kids, but due to his energy, no children under 12. Max is a great dog who needs an owner who understands his needs and personality. While we know that those interviewing will be wonderful people, we will choose the best home for Max where he can be successful and happy forever. Max is sweet, bonds well with people, plays ball, loves treats, is wiggly, ... (Read More)and most always has a smile on his face! He loves his daily walks, which an adopter will need to commit to. He's snuggly and dedicated to his person. He can be protective and intimidating at times, but once he is properly introduced to people, he recognizes them and is sweet. We are protective of this amazing, beautiful boy. We are committed to his successful and happy adoption. He is not in danger at our shelter as we do not euthanize for space. Max is heartworm negative, up-to-date on vaccinations and shots, neutered, walks well with a variety of volunteers, healthy, and house trained. If you believe that you could provide a wonderful home for Max, please call 712-644-3003 or email hchsadmin@harrisonhumane.org to set up a time for an interview. (Less)

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

    Marley is a 2-3 year old, 50 pound Catahoula mix. She is a special needs dog. Marley is deaf and uses hand signals for her commands. Because Marley can't hear she needs a fenced yard to safely run and play. Marley was born with a double pupil in one eye and does not have great vision out of that eye. Marley would enjoy active people who have time to spend with her. Even though Marley was born deaf she is verbal. Other dogs are very confused by her verbal queues because they are not quite 'normal'. Because of this it would be a good idea for Marley to be the only dog in her home or with a male dog. She likes to be the only lady of the ... (Read More)house. She is also becomes very focused on any cats, so her new home should also not have cats. Marley was owner surrendered and was bounced around a lot in her short life. We know she had at least 5 homes in 3 states before she came to us. She is looking for a forever home who will be patient with her. Marley hasn't had a lot of love in her short life. She is a happy girl but it is going to take her some time to bond with her new family because she has lost every home she has ever had. Marley is a good girl and is house trained. She loves children and since she is deaf she doesn't care how much noise they make. Marley is very drawn to children and loves it when they touch her. She is very gentle with young children and loves to run and play in the yard with them. Marley is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, heartworm tested, and microchipped. She is all set to find his forever home and settle in. If you would like to meet Marley, please begin our adoption process by completing our adoption application on our website www.furfunrescue.org.

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs Vaccinations 

    Ellie is about 5 years old. She was brought to us by someone who had her dumped at their house in late December. Although they tried to find an owner one never showed up and they live in an area where dogs are regularly just dumped. They just couldn't keep her any longer so she came in to us. She is one thousand percent terrified. She won't yet let anyone around here get close to her. We are working slowly each day to get her used to us but so far no luck having her even begin to trust us. She is TERRIBLY thin. The people that had her said they tried to put weight on her but no luck at doing so. We are trying to get her to trust us ... (Read More)enough to get a leash on her and take her into the vet (without forcing her and terrifying her more). We hate to have to muzzle a dog to work with it but we may be forced to do so with her. We want to have a full CBC and possibly a Thyroid panel done on her to see if we can determine the cause for how thin she is and her excessive thirst. We believe she may have some lab in her but she is awfully small for a lab. She appears to be about 5 years old from looking at her teeth and they are easy to see when she is growling at us. If Ellie becomes available for adoption we will post her again. It may be a long haul for this young lady. (Less)

    Marty is almost 3 years old and he is a Lab mix. We don't know exactly what this boy has been through but he is terrified of men and children. He will growl at them like he is trying to protect himself. He loves women. He hates being in a crate and will let you know his disdain of same. He is reported as housebroken. He did live with two cats and no reported problems in that arena. We believe he would get along fine with another dog if introduced properly. He has a severe under bite which we had examined by the vet this morning to make sure it wasn't causing him any pain issues and the vet assures us it is not causing any problems. ... (Read More)If he was a human child we could get braces on him to adjust his badly aligned bite. If he could just tell us what makes him hate men maybe we could get him over it but we don't think that is going to happen. His shots are current, he is neutered and he is micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $50.00. There has to be a single woman out there that would love him just the way he is.

    This is Maverick and Bruno (formerly Copper & Cody). This is a perfect example of why we avoid adopting two puppies into the same home. They are Vixey puppies born in February 2016. They were adopted by members of the same family but different households. We had extensive discussions regarding them not living in the same home. That warning got ignored and after two weeks in separate homes they ended up living in the same home. That is until it got too much. They are bonded to each other and not very interested in humans and are very unsocial with humans. We are breaking that bond by separating them at different times and will work ... (Read More)toward totally separating them from each other to try and improve the human relationship. Right now they are still nippy with humans and that is coming along slowly. They are housebroken 'for the most part' we were informed. They do NOT walk well on a leash and that will require work. A harness will be a necessity for both of them. Vixey was a Welsh Corgi mix. They are short kids and aren't very big. They have beautiful coats. (Less)

    **Bonded Pair will NOT Separate** Henley is 7 Rooney is 5. Their owners moved and the girls did not handle the move well or their change in lifestyle they tried for 3 months to settle them but it just didn't work. Hanley is your all around 'great' great Dane, loves everyone great with other dogs, good with cats...loves to chase them when they run but doesn't do anything when she catches them...maybe a nudge to see if they will run again. Loves kids...house trained but has been having some incontinence while sleeping (pills are helping) Rooney has always been a fearful girl (I've watched these girls for their family for several years when ... (Read More)they need boarding) she does best if she can be left alone to follow Hanley. Once she trusts a person she loves to be loved and she is a great girl she *can* sound scary just to show what ever she is warning that she is a big girl. ((mostly just strangers)) Both girls are great at a dog park. They do require a grain free diet...Haney is known to gain weight fast and Rooney is hard to keep weight on. They are both on Victor Grain free Hero and are doing great on it. If you have any other question please ask in your adoption application. We want a home for these girls with a BIG fenced in yard or ALOT of room to play and a family that wants them as part of their family *(These are NOT outside farm dogs)* We want a family with Dane experience and understanding of a fearful dog. Please request an application if you would like these beautiful ladies to join your family. (Less)

The vet stated he is about 10 years old but we think he may older. He will need a home with a fenced in yard (he likes to roam, so if the yard is not fenced you will need to take him out on a leash to potty) Preferably no small children (he's fine with them but they seem to make him nervous) and he would do better without steps (he navigates ...

He is fine with other dogs & cats He is potty trained but he is not vocal so you either need to have him on a schedule or watch for his subtle signs to go out. If I didn't have so many of my own (& if I lived on a farm) I would keep him he is a very easy dog to have Pistol is located in pella iowa You will need to provide vet references & be prepared for a home visit.

    Sampson has been with us since late 2016. That's a long time for a hound to be cooped up in a kennel. :( He has had a couple of home visits....but he likes to talk (a lot) and is a little too interested in kittycats. All Sampson really wants to do is chase critters and hunt when he's not cuddling up to his people. He will need some training for the chatter (we have some ideas for this). He's a bright boy who just needs a family to love. Could you be that family? Please call 712-644-3003 to arrange a time to meet Sampson!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    We want you to meet Zeus. He is almost a year old and finds himself desperately needing the right home to love him and be nice to him. He came out of a not so nice situation off of a 'free Facebook site' and the people that took him a little over a month ago weren't prepared for the fact he didn't get along real well with their other two dogs. He was malnourished and looked very neglected. He was absolutely terrified when he first came in but is doing much better now and we are ready to get him neutered and ready for a furever home. He is a Pit Bull who is extremely submissive and appears to be constantly waiting for someone to hit him. He ... (Read More)has learned to trust James here at the shelter and isn't a bit afraid of him at this point in time. We were told he is housebroken, loves to play with his boys. He does have to be kenneled when not home as he still is a puppy and will chew and destroy things. He knows his basic commands like sit, no, lay down and stay. He loves car rides. He does fairly well on a leash. He is great with kids. Because of his background (both known and unknown) he may need to be an only dog. No history of him with cats. If you come and meet him he will show you just how loving a Pit is. Don't judge him by his looks, judge him by his compassion. He will be brought current on all shots, neutered, heartworm checked and micro-chipped and ready for a forever home by 2/23/17. Help Zeus find a home before his first birthday. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    We want you to meet one very special boy. This is Murphy. He is almost 4 years old and is a East German Czech Shepherd. He did come in with his Pedigree papers if his adopter is interested in having a copy. He is solid black. Unfortunately he was owned by a breeder and was pretty neglected and unsocialized. He warms up slowly and is very loving. He does good with other dogs if introduced slowly and properly. He is neutered, current on all of his shots, has been wormed and is heartworm negative. He just needs a loving home that will show him what he has missed out on the first four years of his life. Based upon the situation he ... (Read More)has come from - he will not be adopted as a farm dog - he deserves a home, soft bed and LOTS of love and attention. One look into his eyes and you can see how much he is craving to be loved. To our knowledge he has never lived with kids. He is a good sized boy at about 80 pounds. He does know how to use a doggie door. If you are interested in this beautiful boy and can offer him the love he deserves, please fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-17-00516Cooper (male)

Treeing Walker Coonhound    Age: Young Adult

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

    Cooper's owners in Greene, Iowa, could no longer keep him. They decided it would be wonderful if he could go to our rescue and find a forever home. So Cooper is now a WPR dog. He is now up to date on shots, tested heartworm negative, and neutered. Cooper is living in a foster home. Cooper is about 2-years-old. He is good with other dogs and he really enjoys playing with other dogs. He also likes to fetch balls. He does OK with cats and kittens in his foster home, but he shouldn't be left alone with them until your absolutely sure he's comfortable with them. He shows some prey instinct towards the cats when they run or hiss at him, but if ... (Read More)they are comfortable and calm with him, he is friendly to them. He also has a bit of food and toy defensive aggression with cats and dogs. This his first time for him having normal indoor living on a regular basis. He is nervous and barks a lot, but that should calm down in a couple days once he settles in. He is a wonderful boy, very friendly. Foster home will work on the inside dog training he needs. He is smart and learning quickly. He will probably need continued training in an adoptive home, so an experienced dog owner will be best. Might even be a good idea if you already have a dog, that will make him more comfortable to have a dog friend plus your dog can help him with the training. Also, because of his breed a fenced in yard is required. That way he can explore and sniff around all he wants but stay safe at the same time. We will update his profile as we get to know him, and with his progress in his foster home. 1/6/17 UPDATE: Day 2 in his foster home! Things are going well.. The Barking/Howling/Baying is getting much better. Cooper and our dog Indy have been playing quite a bit today. He does OK in a crate, He enjoys exploring the fenced in back yard, and doesn't show any interest in trying to get out or jump over it. He has been spending most of his time playing with Indy, following us around the house and sleeping on the couch. 1/8/17 UPDATE: In the home: When we picked up Cooper, there was a claim that he would need some work with potty training. So far, everything has been fine. He continues to do better with the cats, and plays a lot with our dog Indy. Pet Store Event Cooper attended yesterday: We took Cooper down to Pet Supplies Plus for the Grand Opening. He was able to get everyone's attention with his baying/bark. He was friendly to everyone.. including kids. He was good with the other dogs he interacted with as well. 1/10/17 UPDATE: Cooper is continuing to so well.. he's mostly healed from his neutering so hopefully the cone can come off in the next couple days. The more he gets comfortable with us, the less he barks.. Still iffy with the cats.. but making good progress. He's a very sweet and loving dog, he loves to play, and it's unfortunate that the weather makes it tough to play in the back yard. I'm starting to think he would serve well as a home guard dog. He isn't set off by every little noise, but if he hears some thing unusual, he's on top of it! 1/20/17 UPDATE: At the 2 week mark, Cooper is doing very well. Barking is normal, no issues with potty training. Living a normal happy dog life. Even getting along with the cats. Will someone please adopt Cooper and give him a forever home? $150.00 adoption fee.

    Sammy is under 2 years old. He came to us in early January absolutely terrified of humans. He would bite when he was terrified. He has come a LONG LONG way since then. He will now come up to his gate and allow people to gently touch him. He goes in and out without having to be on a leash and forced to go outside. He is now curious about humans and has gotten very good with the regular volunteers here at PFP. He is housebroken. He will require a quiet home with someone who is VERY patient and will just wait for him to be curious enough to seek attention.

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

    Roscoe found himself in not so good of a place when his owner surrendered him to a shetler that can't hang onto dogs for very long. He was surrendered because he nipped at the kids when they pulled his tail - well yeah - that is understandable. Teach the kids respect not dump the dog. He has to be introduced to other dogs slowly but once he trusts them he does amazing. He loves his toys and plaing fetch. He does not do well with cats. He would probably be best with kids over the age of 10 so they will be a little more respectful. He is about 18 months old. He is housebroken, neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and ... (Read More)micro-chipped. He does not show well in his kennel - so to visit Roscoe you need to be willing to spend a little time with him to let him learn to trust you. (Less)

    Sonny is a sweet and loving little guy. He is a 9 pound fawn and white Chihuahua mix who is 3-4 years old. Sonny is a little sky when he first meets new people. He needs time to warm up, but in time he will be curled up in your lap. Sonny came to us with another 5 Chihuahua's who were all rescued from a hoarding situation. There were many others taken from this house as well. The dogs were well treated, there were just too many of them for the people to handle and properly care for. Sonny had never been on a leash, but he now understands how to walk on a leash, but he would rather be in your arms. Sonny far prefers men over ... (Read More)women. He will quickly go to men and is more comfortable with them. He would prefer a quiet home without small children. Sonny also needs other dogs in his home. He feels more confident around other dogs and they help him approach people. We would like Sonny to have a secure fenced yard to play in with his new canine siblings. Sonny, like most Chihuahua's loves warm dog beds and blankets to burrow under. Sonny is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and heartworm tested. Sonny is housetrained.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

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

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

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

    Socks is a three year old Rottweiler. He is still very energetic. He is housebroken and gets along well with other dogs. He is terrified of cats. He does take a little while to warm up with humans so he has to be introduced properly. If he likes you it is pure love. If not then he is very stand offish. 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 and children. He is a little testy when he is eating or chewing on a bone. If he is in a home with another dog he would need to be fed separately and not be ... (Read More)given bones. He has no issue sharing toys. 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. He is now neutered, current on his shots, is heartworm negative and micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $150.00 if you are interested in Socks please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an application. (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. 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.)
