Rescue Me ID: 14-07-22-00179Daisy Mae (female)

Lhasa Apso    Age: Puppy

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

    Daisy is a friendly and loving girl. She was raised in a home with one other Lhasa and an elderly woman. Her previous owner has gone into a nursing home and is unable to keep Daisy. I have young boys and Daisy IS NOT adjusting to life with children. Her ideal home is one with an older, stable couple or single person. She loves walks and going places. She does very well in social settings with children, other dogs and crowds, just not in her home. Daisy's little world has been turned upside down these past few months. I will only let her go to the right family with a positive history of dog ownership and care.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00776Zoey (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    LOOKING FOR A WONDERFUL FOREVER HOME for a cute female yorkie named Zoey. The vet says shes at least 7 years old. She is 7#. Slightly cloudy eyes, but vet says its not cataracts and won't effect her vision. She is house broken. In the last month, she has lived in three different homes. Zoey was used to living the quiet life with an elderly lady just laying around being spoiled. THEN her life was turned upside down when her owner was put in a nursing home and she went to live in a home with small children. Pretty stressful when you are used to peace and quiet, so it wasn't really a good fit. She is currently living at our home where our cat ... (Read More)& dog don't give her a moments peace. She has been a little food aggressive and bossy with the other animals...therefore feel she would be better by herself. The ideal home for Zoey would be with an older couple who don't have small children around. She will be the only pet doing nothing but laying around being spoiled & loved. She does love a good meal too. May be shy and timid until she gets to know you, but she can be a sweet little girl without all the stress she's been dealing with here lately. She comes with her kennel and toys. Text or email if you would like more information on adopting her or if you would like to meet her. Thanks for looking. (Less)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Senior

He is a very nice guy. He walks well on a leash. He was housebroke in his former home but may need a refresher course after being in the shelter. Very good guy who deserves a a second chance.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-19-00386Tucker (male)

Siberian Husky Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    We have a dog just over 2 yrs. old that needs a home immediately. If you are not able to provide him with a home but can recommend a no-kill shelter that matches dogs with compatible owners, we'd appreciate recommendations as well. Tucker is part terrier/husky/beagle. He weighs about 18 lbs. He has an adorable 'posture' of one ear up & one ear down. He is used to a large yard and is an outdoor dog. 90-95% of the time he is sweet and friendly and enjoys getting to know other dogs. He also is tolerant of our cats. He had surgery at an early age and has never wanted his neck/collar touched since. As he's aged, he has gotten less and ... (Read More)less nervous/sensitive to this. However, just when we think he's mellowed, he'll inexplicably lash out and bite (or cause fur to fly on the cat). This usually occurs when he's being protective of his food (aggressive/possessive) or if you mess with his collar/neck--but not always/consistently. While he's not 'big enough' to cause significant trauma, he has punctured skin and scared my children. He loves attention and following us around in the yard. Tucker knows a few tricks, enjoys playing and has been known to hunt small critters. He is also afraid of the dark. : ) Tucker is the 'baby' of our 13 yr. old daughter. This is a difficult decision for her--but he bit her the other night during his nighttime/bedtime routine. (Less)

Mastiff    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hades is a very lovable companion. He is a little shy at first around new people and requires a little time to warm up but once he gets to know you he will be your best friend. The only reason we are looking to relocate him is we already have another English Mastiff and a Border Collie and a nine month old baby and the combination of all four is a bit too much.

I am probably a little too old to adjust to being around little kids. When I was surrendered it was represented that I was housebroken and while here at the shelter that has been shown to be accurate. If you are looking for a quiet and calm companion, come and visit me.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there, My name is Kendra and I'm looking to re-home my 8 year old, Catahoula leopard mix Smoke. I love him dearly but have to surrender him because out of nowhere he started marking things and pooping in our daughters nursery. We took him to the vet and could not find anything medically wrong with him. Our vet thinks it's all behavioral possibly because of our new baby. We tried anti-anxiety drugs and kenneling him but that has not been working for us. I'm heartbroken over this situation because I want to keep him but my fiance has had it and we CAN NOT keep him. He is such a loving boy, he's very cuddly, and affectionate. He's loves all ... (Read More)people including small children. He enjoys being outdoors and laying in the sun. He also likes lounging indoors. I'm at a loss because I would HATE to take him to a shelter since he's a black, 8yr old boy and those tend to get adopted last. Also he gets scared when he hears loud noises and will come sit in my lap so I wouldn't want him to be in a shelter during a storm. If you could please take the time to look into him I would be so appreciative. I just love him so much and want him to have a good home. The attached picture is of Smoke and my son. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

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

    I am one of the new fur kids here at Patriots. My name is Ginni. I am about four years old and I am a major lover. In the 10 days since I arrived here, I have been snuggled with, played with, had my food played with, walked on a leash and had all parts of my body handled and guess what - I don't mind anything you do as long as you are giving me attention and loving on me. I've got a slight injury on one of my legs but it is healing up very well and in another couple of days you won't even be able to tell it. I do have to tell you that I don't like people who stand over me and yell and lunge at me - I did bite someone for doing it - no one ... (Read More)knows exactly what happened except me and of course - who will take my side of the story - I am a dog. After testing me, the folks here at Patriots believe that I was protecting myself from the bully who was acting like he was going to hurt me as I have done nothing to give anyone here any signs that I am aggressive. I like kids a lot and I don't mind other dogs - I will chase the cats though but they are pretty quick and always go too high for me to reach. I am fairly quiet and I am housebroken. I'm not a very big girl. I am about 40 pounds. I have been spayed, current on all of my shots, have been heartworm checked and have a micro-chip. My next step is to find a forever home. Preferably one where the gas man doesn't come into my yard and try to intimidate me. If you know of such a person - will you let them know that I am here waiting at Patriots for Pets. High Paws To All, Ginni (Less)

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)

    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.

    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.

Afghan Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Max is a DOGS FOREVER dog who was adopted in January of 2013 by a family in Merrill Wisconsin because they wanted both an indoor family dog and a sled dog. He performed well in sanctioned mushing competitions (both winters) but due to his tendency toward dominance (particularly toward other large male dogs) they have now decided to relinquish him. Prior to his adoption, Max struggled psychologically in our SAFE PLACE shelter (which is relatively small and does not have outdoor runs). He was temporarily in foster care but because of his size (42' length) and high energy level, he was able to escape from the fenced-in yard. Note: Max could ... (Read More)be in a home without a fence if the foster parent is dog-experienced. Max's ideal owner would be a runner/sledder/musher/drylander as he needs daily exercise. Max does not do well in a shelter environment and ideally should be a home WITHOUT another male dog as he has occasionally demonstrated an alpha nature his current dominant male sibling (but he gets along with his current female canine siblings). Despite his love of running outdoors, Max is not an outdoor dog; he very much wants to be with his human(s). Although Max lived affably the first 2 years of his life with a child equal in age and a submissive female dog, he is now living in a home with two teenage children and a dominant male Boxer with whom he has butted heads. Therefore he is being relinquished back to DOGS FOREVER on Saturday, May 10. Our foster homes are full. Note: we know that Max is an Afghan Hound / Alaskan Malamute mix because both of his parents (and his sibling sister) live here in Cedar Rapids. (Less)

German Shorthaired Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with 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)

    Larrisa is still with us. She is the sister to Lambert and like him, she has lived in a shelter since she was 8 weeks old and is now over 2 years old. In the couple of months she has been with us she has come a long way. She is still very shy but slowly, one day at a time, it is getting better. She is a very sweet dog but just petrified. Not sure what happened to her at the other shelter to make her this shy but we absolutely believe she will come around given the time and love she deserves. She is good with kids and other animals. She would probably do best in a fairly quiet home.

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    URGENT HELP NEEDED--Rose was pulled from high kill shelter in Miami, Florida on 3/3/2014. She was scheduled to be killed within next 2 days. She was at the last back kennel in a room with long rows of death-row kenneled dogs that house about 60 dogs. By the time visitors reached her area, they had already seen the whole shelter (200 plus dogs there) and most people hardly even got to see her kennel--because it was so out of the way. She had been confined to a very small cell since January! She had not left that cell for one minute until we came along. She is a lover. She has a lot of 'puppy' in her and she can be calm and walk by herself ... (Read More)into her kennel when left open, or run around the house and throw her toys up in the air. She has gotten along with smaller dogs but I believe she is greatly fearful of bigger dogs and does become aggressive with them when she sees them At first until she warms up-I believe out of fear. Since we pulled her, she has travelled with us to hotels and is very loving with all strangers. She has slept with my daughter and travels fantastic in a car. We cannot keep Rose because she becomes obsessed with my cats. We have an acreage with about 20 rescued cats and she becomes deaf to all when she sees a cat. Rose is only about 35-40 lbs an so not a very big dog. She is a mutt of mutts and we believe she is boxer/lab plus a dash of pitt/terrier? She would be best in a home with adults, no cats and children older than 8 years old Absolutely no cats but yes we can try her with smaller dogs. Please help us give Rose a forever home and help her go from almost killed to a dream life. Right now she is at the best DOGGY DAY CARE--Half-Moon Kennels--but she can't stay there for ever because my funds are limited. Please help us help Rose. I can drive Rose anywhere in the country where she can find a great forever home. Please note that All dogs I adopt out first go for 2 week trial period. Goal is to see if it's a good match for Dog-human. Also dog can always come back to me if it does not work out. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-20-00188Tron (male)

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!

    Gypsy is now ready for adoption. This girl came from Texas and was scheduled to be euthanized along with her seven puppies which were only a few days old. We brought her and the babies back with us. She did an excellent job taking care of her babies and she has come a long way. She is still a little shy but warms up with slow and steady attention. She has now been spayed, is up to date on all of her shots and is micro-chipped. This girl has been through hell - she deserves a good and loving home where she can be a member of the family. We have not had any problems with her going to the bathroom inside but while she was at Debbie's house ... (Read More)with the puppies and since she has come back to the kennel. She needs LOVE. She is good with kids and would probably be fine with another dog - we would just want to check them together. (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!
