Rescue Me ID: 14-10-01-00837Jax (male)

Pug    Age: Adult

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

    I am a fun loving very happy little man. At 15 lbs I'm tiny for a pug but don't let that fool you. I have lots of love to give you. I do have an enlarged heart and it causes fluid to build up in my lungs so I require lasix sometimes but thats all. My Dr. said I will live a long and healthy life with proper care. I'm not fully potty trained yet but my foster mommy is working on it, so I wear belly bands inside most of the time. I live with 3 other pugs, a chihuahua and a cat. I get along great with kids also. And my foster mommy calls me the ultimate Velcro pug because if she's sitting I'm on her lap or right up next to her. So if your ... (Read More)looking for a tiny lap pug I'm your man. Note: Jax will do best in a home where there is usually someone home or not left for longer periods than 4 hours at a time. If you are interested in this darling little man, please contact his foster mom, Jennifer via email Myjenday@gmail.com so she can fill you in on all of his antics! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-29-00939Staley Bear (male)

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Staley Bear is a 1 year old Yorkie that was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Keokuk, IA. He kept getting sick and was grossly thin, so the shelter staff reached out to us on his behalf thinking he was just stressed in the shelter setting. We transported him to us and had him seen by our vet right away thinking he had a blockage. Unfortunately, the news was far worse than that. He has a condition called Canine Mega Esophagus. It is a condition where the esophagus is so enlarged that food and water pool in the esophagus instead of making it to the stomach. The dog basically starves to death if left untreated. There is no surgery to fix ... (Read More)this issue. Instead, there is only maintenance care which requires a Bailey Chair, medication and a special diet. AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport believes in caring for all our dogs as if they were our own and providing all necessary vet care if quality of life can be achieved. We believe Staley Bear can have a happy, healthy life if we can get him on a good maintenance program. We are working on finding that perfect combination of medication and special diet. We are getting him a Bailey Chair that will hold him upright when he eats so his food and water make it to his tummy. Staley Bear is in a foster home with a wonderful foster mom that has joined a Canine Mega Esophagus support group on Facebook and is learning everything she can about the condition so that we can properly care for him. In the meantime, he is seeing specialists and the bills are mounting. His chances of being adopted are slim, but we will keep him and care for him as long as he needs us, whether that means weeks, months or years, we will love him and provide the best care possible.

Lab    Age: Young Adult

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

Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    2 year old bonded males full of energy love and playfulness! These boys are the best of friends, coming from a family with 3 small girls Charlie is excellent with children but had a weight issue before he was placed with Max.

Lab    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected, Aggressive 

    Charlie (chocolate) is great with kids. His previous family had 3 young girls, but adopting him in from them was amazing for Max who came from an abusive owner. Charley has done wonders in setting the example for Max. They are bonded and should remain together. Max'a only aggression issue is growling and he's never nipped, shown teeth or bitten anyone. However, because of his past he needs to be kept away from children as a precaution until better trained to behave appropriately with food, treats and toys. These 2 young boys are high energy but very loving towards people and each other. They are used to structure and consistency and would be ... (Read More)a blessing to a family of adults with lots of love to give and room for them to play. They are both good with my two cats which is an added bonus. (Less)

Great Pyrenees    Age: Young Adult

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

    We would like you to meet the newest guest at Patriots. We are calling him Bear. He has spent his day getting brushed (and there is a long way to go) and getting a bath that he desperately needed. Bear is about four years old and is a Great Pyrenees. Up until a year ago he was an house dog and his family gave him away. In the last year he has been a farm dog but unfortunately would not stay put. He would wander off for days at a time. He is a big boy as you can see with him sitting next to Erik. We would like to say a big thanks to Erik for spending this afternoon working on what will be a beautiful coat with some work. We are hoping to ... (Read More)get some people who are willing to come out and spend some time brushing him so we aren't forced to shave him down. He is really good when he is being brushed and was excellent for his bath (Erik took a bath with him). He will need a home with a yard so he can run around and play and not escape. We have no doubt the housebreaking will come right back to him. He has done great in here today. He seems to love everyone and just has tons of affection and love to give to a new family who will make him a member of their family. (Less)

Boston Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    George is a lovable Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix. He gets along well with cats and other dogs. He is good with children and loves everyone he meets. He is very playful but is also a big cuddler. He loves nothing more than to snuggle up with you under a blanket while you're watching TV. He is crate trained and mostly housebroken. He still has an accident here and there but with a little more training, I'm sure he'll do fine. He is a smart little dog and catches on quickly.

    Mojo was born at our no-kill shelter and was returned in 2012 when his anxiety level was too much for his owner to work with. Since arriving at the shelter and starting doggie prozac he is a much calmer dog and at 90 pounds, he thinks he is a lap dog. Mojo can take a while to warm up to new people and he will require a home with a 6 foot fence as he will 'climb' a 4 foot fence to chase after rabbits and squirells.

    I am Cowboy and I am at Patriot's for Pets - and not by choice. I will be 10 years old on October 31st and have lived my entire life with one owner. You see my dad died and my mom had to move into town and could not take me with her. I am registered with the American Border Collie Association and a copy of my registration and pedigree will go with me when I get adopted - if you really care about that kind of stuff. I am used to living on an acreage and sleeping inside at night. I am housebroken and don't cause any trouble. I am not fond of little kids as I don't like them messing with me and I will warn them if they get rough - I have ... (Read More)never bit anyone - but please don't make me live with little kids. I am great with men - I tolerate women and I bark at kids. I DO NOT like cats. I have never been around another dog so if you have another dog my age we can give it a try. I need someplace I can play, as I am still pretty active, and a warm place to sleep at night. I would be a perfect companion for a senior man who wants companionship without the hassles of a puppy. I still have lots of years of love to give the right person. (Less)

    Goli is an absolutely wonderful dog whom we love immensely! He has a little bit of food aggression which my kids know and have no problems with. Unfortunately we have way to many neighborhood kids who come in and out of the house who don't understand this which is why we are looking for a wonderful kind family who will give Goliath the kind of home he needs. Goliath is potty trained and knows how to sit and lay. We love him a ton and are so very sad to be having to do this.

He needs help with manners, but is a great dog overall.

At this time I don't recommend he is in a home with small children just because he will plow them over :) He seems to be house trained (very clean in his space) He is very dog selective.... seems to want to play but becomes very dominating when he is with others. Axle is under weight at 65# so if interested in adopting be ready for a big powerful boy when he settles in his new home :) $150 ... (Read More)Adoption fee (Less)

    very sweet and well behaved border collie. He was at one time potty trained but that has been allowed to lax a little bit as he has been outside in a kennel for years now. He has a lot of energy and will run away if loose. Needs a good home where he can get lots of exercise (a fenced yard or be a house dog with lots of walks). He also craves lots of love and attention, but he is not excessively needy. He is a fantastic companion but for the last several years he has lived a lonely existence confined to a kennel with little attention.

    We are looking to re-home our 6 year old Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff.) He is kennel trained, knows all his commands, gentle with kids, and is up to date on vaccines. We recently discovered that one of our young sons is allergic to dogs, so we need to find him a new home. Cooper will do well in a home where he receives a lot of attention, walks, exercise, etc. He seems to do best with one male 'master.' He has no health problems and is still very active and playful. He loves to be outside, run, play, long walks, etc. Please email with your interest and tell us about yourself, your household and why you'd like to adopt Cooper. Thanks!

    High energy, loving, but dominant, especially of my wife since she (wife) developed health issues. Elsa has issues with wanting to be alpha female, and has bitten/nipped my wife on several occasions, none of which required medical treatment. She is an awesome dog, a great physical example of the breed, and fairly well trained (sit/stay/come). I think if my wife had not developed physical disability and was able to be a consistent alpha, Elsa would not be having these issues. She is pretty good but excitable around visitors, and will herd small children. She loves to go for runs, heels pretty ok but is a puller, and is HIGHLY food ... (Read More)motivated. Will bark at strangers thru window or when she needs out or feels supper is late, is very vocal during play or petting, but not a huge barker most of the time. Will not allow her nails to be clipped tho. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    ChaCha's forever family turned out not to be forever. Despite a year of going back and forth and trying to figure out a way for them to be happy with her, unfortunately they just do not want to keep her- ChaCha has done NOTHING wrong, has done nothing to deserve being surrendered a second time by her family, and now because she is in Illinois, I have limited means of helping her. A few wonderful local networkers have also been trying for several months to share ChaCha, and finally we got her courtesy listed by a rescue, but her adopter contacted me this weekend and said she had found a local shelter that was 'no kill' (do those really ... (Read More)exist?) and she doesn't want her any longer. ChaCha is GREAT with kids- has two little boys she loves right now more than anything, so I would love to give her this again. She has been getting periodic training to work on her mouthiness and overzealousness around other dogs- she is reactive to other reactive dogs, but could be just fine with equally mellow dogs if introduced correctly and given firm leadership (she is NOT aggressive though). https://www.facebook.com/rachelmlamb/media_set?set=a.10152405851967550.1073741883.551257549&type=1 (Less)

    **URGENT** Maggie is 8 years old, and is no longer tolerant of small children. Our household has 2 kids, a 4 year old and a baby. She has started growling at loud noises and is grumpy when the kids are playing on the floor. She has not bitten, but we are not able to trust her with the kids at this point in fear of a bite in the future. Maggie is such a sweet girl, she loves to lounge around and snuggle. She likes a quiet, calm atmosphere. She is very easy to care for and would be ideal for an adult household. PLEASE contact me if you are interested in meeting Maggie. We are located in Davenport, Iowa but willing to drive within a reasonable ... (Read More)distance to rehome to her a happy home. Thank you! (Less)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Name: Cash Age: 5-6 years Neutered male. Kids: very very protective of babies and does not like fast movements so kids probably not the best. Animals: hates cats, lives with a dog now, he recently started fighting more with but other dog is also dominant male so they butt heads often, they do play a lot, rough play too. A submissive dog may be okay. Also, very protective of women. Loves toys and is a big goof ball. This may sound crazy but he gets grouchy on Sundays, loves his sleep and alone time during the week, he gets sick of us by Sunday I think. We love him to death and this is very hard on us but I think he would thrive in a ... (Read More)home that understands him and can work with him better than we can. Needs a single person that doesn't live too crazy of a life. Or someone who knows how American Bulldogs work and are able to rehab in into the perfect dog because he is really great for the right kind of owner. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

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

    SwayLeah is a beautiful dog and fairly good. She cannot be left out of a kennel when no one is home. She is potty trained, and knows basic commands with some tricks. And she is good with older kids, but any kid under 3-4 years I wouldn't trust. My parents want me to get rid of her because she is not adjusting to the baby very well and has started snipping the baby in the face a little, and they are afraid for her safety. Otherwise she has been around kids older then 5. She lives with 2 female pit bulls, and she has had other dogs come in and out of house because I did fostering. She is a good dog, just my parents don't wanna risk it.

Bluetick Coonhound Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Adoption fee really only applies if I need to drive far away, but if you wish to come pick him up and meet with us, you may. Marlowe is a dog I adopted from a friend. After an introductory period, he does really well with people and animals, but things are always a little rusty at first. He is very vocal, and loves cuddles and kisses. He enjoys chasing rabbits, and I take him on long runs (up to 7 miles) without him getting tired. He is athletic as much as he is calm and loving, and he enjoys walks but also enjoys laying about the house. He is very affectionate and dorky.

German Shorthaired Pointer 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 

    UPDATE ON LAMBERT: When Lambert first came to us a couple of months ago he was terrified, anti-social and afraid of everything. You see, Lambert was surrendered (along with his two siblings) to a shelter when he was eight weeks old and never got adopted. He spent over two years at the other shelter and they finally had to find some place for him and his sister to go that they believed may be able to finally find a home for them. He came to Patriots a couple of months ago. He is still shy but at least now he will let us pet him. He goes on walks with volunteers and he will now take a treat out of our hand. He has finally gotten the hang of ... (Read More)going to the bathroom outside. He does go out and run around the exercise yard. He will now look at you and allow you to pet him. He has made great strides since he has been here but the only way he will ever get completely over his shyness is to find a family who will love him and be patient with him while he figures out it is ok to be loved and to seek that love. There isn't a mean bone in his body - he likes kids and he gets along with other animals. There has to be the right home out there for this great dog who just needs a chance at life. (Less)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    HELP! Tron is a reascue from a high kill shelter. He was in the shelter 30 days when I pulled him. He was going to be euthanized the week I took him (3/03/14).He is kind and gentle with all of the adults (man and women) he has met and kind and gentle with my 13 and 15 year old kids. He is great with all dogs and likes young children. Tron I s a very quiet majestic looking boy. He gets along very well with most dogs--a social butterfly. I can't keep him because he is very interested on cats and I have an acreage with about 20 cats I've rescued. He has not shown one ounce of aggression--not even when he saw the cats--just wanted to chase ... (Read More)them. He sleeps most of the day and would be excellent companion to someone that wants a loyal friend for life. He is about 1 year old. Please help me help Tron. As it is, I can't walk him because of the cats outside. This baby can't go back to a shelter. He is currently at the best DOGGY DAY CARE (Half-Moon Kennels) and doing great. But he can't stay there forever. Please help me give him the forever home. He is neutered and completely vetted. I can drive Tron anywhere in the country where there is a perfect home for him. Please contact me if you think you are it. Also Any dog I adopt out comes with a 2 week trial period. Goal is to ensure dog-human match is perfect. Also if at anytime adopter cannot keep the dog dog can always be returned to me. No questions asked! I know circumstances change. Goal is to keep Tron safe and loved all of a long life. Thanks!

Rescue Me ID: 13-10-25-00548ChaCha- LOVES KIDS! (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    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 

    ChaCha is a 6 year old female Staffordshire Terrier weighing 75 pounds that is fully housebroken and crate trained. She is a beautiful 'blue' gray and white color, and she is very playful & has a true zest for life- you'd never know she was an adult by the way she is always smiling, soaking up the attention and company of others! ChaCha loves to play ball with you and could go for hours, but when playing quietly, I have found that a durable Kong toy or Nylabone is best as she can get a little carried away! She is afraid of loud noises, i.e. fireworks, garbage trucks, and thunderstorms, so a new owner would need to know there will be times ... (Read More)when ChaCha will be needing your emotional support (and lap). She is also not a fan of water; if it is raining she will not go outside- she IS a California rescued dog, after all! ChaCha is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed and LOVES children- her previous adopter who is looking to find her a new home has two small boys, and ChaCha has learned to be extremely gentle and not plow into them when she is overly excited. She would make a family complete with her nuturing and affectionate personality, to be sure. Because she can easily climb a fence, she would need to be supervised while outdoors; we prefer that any yard have at least a 5-6 ft fence. A born athlete, ChaCha is a runner and will chase rabbits, squirrels, and cats (thus, we do not believe she should be in a home with any cats). Currently, ChaCha is in training, working on not only socialization around other dogs but working on improving her proper leash skills as she can be a strong puller; we have found she does best with a prong collar. Because she exhibits anxiety when around other dogs- losing focus and becoming reactive to their energy- we believe Chacha's ideal home would have her as the only pet. If you are interested in discussing Chacha further, and possibly setting up a meeting, please contact Rachel at #323-929-7311 or via email: Hollywooftotherescue@gmail.com. https://www.facebook.com/rachelmlamb/media_set?set=a.10152405851967550.1073741883.551257549&type=1 (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!
