He belonged to my children and exhusband and they were no longer able to keep him due to where they live. He is generally a very sweet dog but does not like stressful aggressive situations. He has bitten me but as I said it was a stressful aggressive situation and he protected his master. ARL contacted me this morning as he is not reacting well to the shelter. He is very scared and showing fearful signs toward the shelter staff. He won't let them near him and they are unable to place him for adoption due to his behavior. He needs ...

He is great with my kids and got along well with my silky and chihuahua was never around dogs other than them. He does enjoy chasing cats but to my knowledge never hurt one.

Lab 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 

    Pete was a dump early December 2014. Our vet checked him for heartworms (negative) and vaccinated for Rabies and DHLP-PV. We named him Pete and he responds well to this name. He is not chipped. Pete is well trained and gets along well with our 11 year old male black Lab. The only reason we need to find a forever home for Pete is because he absolutely does not get along well with cats. He recently killed one of our mature cats.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy folks - my name is Carter. I don't have to tell ya because you can see, I am a beautiful young man. I will be a year old in March and I am an active boy. My family couldn't keep me as they didn't have enough time for me. Don't feel sorry for me - just help me find a new home. I am completely house trained and I have been through obedience school although I can use reminders to be good. I still like to jump and run around. No one is positive what breed I am so we are just going to say I am a Patriot Blend. I like little kids but in typical puppy fashion I jump and end up knocking them down. If my new family had older kids to ... (Read More)play with that would be awesome. I am still a little mouthy so I will need someone to remind me that my teeth only belong on my toys. When you ignore me I will come up behind you and nip you in the butt to remind you that it is time to play with me. I love to sleep in bed and cuddle up with you and I am very good. I am not really too big of a bed hog. I am weighing in at about 40 pounds and probably won't get much bigger. All of my shots are current and I am neutered. All I am missing is an active family. Won't you help me find one? (Less)

Currently has an issue with his left ear. He has never been abused. Only loved and cared for. I just can't afford him any longer.

    My name is Tyson - you can guess why I got that name. Wrestling is my favorite thing. I am now 5 weeks old and I am doing pretty good. Thanks for keeping track of me since I was a couple of days old. I am growing really well and am now at three pounds. I have pretty unique coloring. I am almost a deep silver color with black on my face and ears. It may sound a little conceited but I am the best looking of the group. Right now the game plan for me is that I will be neutered on February 10th and be ready for my home by Valentines day. My mom is Molly, the Dachshund mix, but it is unknown what my dad was. I am a pretty good size puppy and I ... (Read More)look nothing like my mom. I am probably going to be a good size boy. (Less)

    Jack is NOT GOOD WITH KIDS. Jack will do well in a home with an older Male. Will need a fenced in yard as he will run off. Jack is current on his Rabies shot. We have had Jack since a new puppy, he has always been ornery, the house has 4 adults and Jack only likes the Husband. Jack is very protective of him and growls when anyone walks into the same room he is in. Now alas there is a small child that is mobile. Not a good combination. Jack has nipped at the toddler one too many times. We need to find him a good home. We were given papers when we bought him that claimed he is purebred, I really think he's mixed with Poodle. Thank you.

Jack Russell    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Mary is a super sweet 8 year old spayed female Jack Russell Terrier. She is purebred, but does not have papers. She is mostly white with a very distinctive peace sign marking on her forehead. She is good with kids, cats (at least the one she lives with now, introduce carefully), and with other dogs once she gets to know them. As is usual, she will bark at them at first, but then she will be their friends when they get near. She is a very active dog, but not quite as active as a typical JRT. She had an injury to her paw and hip when young so limps now and then, but this really doesn't seem to bother her. She is super loving, knows some ... (Read More)tricks and loves to catch rabbits and small rodents. Her quirks are that she's afraid of sneezes, vacuum cleaners, brooms, and pretty much cleaning tool. I have no idea why. Mary is pretty much the best dog ever, so I am crying posting this ad. That said, I think we're doing her a disservice. Our kids are nearly grown, we work long hours, and Mary just needs more attention. Looking for a good, loving home for Mary with someone with plenty of time to take her for walks (she especially loves the woods) and cuddles. If you have not had a JRT, she probably isn't the dog for you. JRTs are wonderful dogs, and their shedding, digging, and hunting are testaments to this... but it's best to know what you're getting into. Rehoming fee of $50 includes a crate, any food we have left, etc. We'll also make a donation in that amount to this rescue site. I'm going to be a bit picky, so I anticipate the process being twofold - you visit us to meet Mary, then we visit you to make sure everything's a good fit. (Less)

    Fred is a handsome, sweet deaf male dog looking for his forever home. Being deaf, he has special needs, especially not having surprises and needing a lot of patience from his people. He would do better with older children who understand that he should not be surprised or startled. He is actually quite a lapdog who loves snuggling and giving kisses. He will make a good family a wonderful companion.... are you the right fit? If so, please give him a chance!

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-20-00268Nayeli (female)

Pointer    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy 

    Sweet baby girl Nayeli is a TRUE RESCUE! Her name is very fitting for her past life. Ancient Mayans (and Zapotec Indians) would use the word Nayeli to tell someone 'I love you.' :) Nayeli was found in the backyard of a home tied to a dog house with no bottom in it and mud all around her. She was confined to her area by a 16 pound logging chain!!!!!! Her body had started to deteriorate due to lack of food and care. She was truly lucky that an animal control officer just happened to see her peeking her head out from her 'dog house.' Once removed from the yard, it was found that Nayeli was being neglected. Her entire body was covered ... (Read More)in layers of yuck! She smelled, had had no food in some time, no water available to her, and was living in a dog house with no floor. Yet, she was the sweetest girl when the loving hand of the animal control officer came to release her (and another dog) from the property. (the previous owner has since been found guilty of neglect and sentenced). Nayeli spent a few weeks gaining back weight and being evaluated by vetrinarians. It was discovered that Nayeli's journey was only just beginning. Nayeli was diagnosed with heartworms. :( She has since moved to foster care in Des Moines, Iowa. She lives with 2 children under the age of 4 and another resident female doggy. Nayeli knows sit, shake and down. She is crate trained but does bark when you initially put her in. She wants to be with her people!! :) Because Nayeli has always been with other dogs, and due to her past experiences, she would fair better in a home with another dog...BUT NO CATS! She likes to see what is on the counter from time to time but is getting better with controlling her urges. :) At night she sleeps in a big cushy doggy bed with her foster sister and will let you sleep in if you ask her to lie down for a quick 5 minute snooze on the alarm. :) Nayeli was given the okay to start the process to treat her heartworms. It is an uphill and EXPENSIVE battle. Her treatments will cost just over $1000!!! Nayeli is currently available for sponsorship. The money would go directly to her heartworm treatments. Thank you for taking a peek at our wonderful girl Nayeli. If you think she may be a fit for your home, once she is healthy enough for adoption, please inquire on her. She truly is a RESCUE doggy. :) For German Shorthaired Pointers: GPPR covers the states of Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota For English Pointers: GPPR will adopt within the Midwestern States where we have volunteers located. Please be sure to ask if your state is included. (Less)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Since the last picture of me didn't get my best side - here is a new picture of me. I'll tell you my story again, just in case you don't remember me. My name is Micah. I am a 3 1/2 year old Rottie mix. I am an awesome young man and have not met any humans, big or small, that I don't like. I love to be petted and cuddled with. I also love to curl up on your lap. I've been told I'm a little too big for a lap dog - but hey if you are game - then so am I. I am a little over 60 pounds. I do get along with other dogs but sometimes I am a little selective with my friends so if you have another dog we would need to meet to make sure we are ... (Read More)compatible. I haven't been around cats so I am not sure if I like them or not. I still have quite a bit of energy and need a place to be able to run around and play. I am a toy fanatic and it's not very often you will see me without a toy in my mouth. I don't tear them up - I just play with them and carry them around. I am completely housebroken and really patient waiting my turn to go out to go potty around here. Because I am patient I usually end up being the last one out. I will require a good quality diet. The cheap junk makes me itch and I have been put on a grain free diet here at the shelter. I am a good eater and I don't make a mess when I am eating. I am not food aggressive at all. I do know some basic commands but unless you make me do it I will push the envelope and ignore the commands. I am still pretty jumpy when I get excited so I may not be the best choice with small humans. I am neutered, current on my shots, I have been heartworm checked and am negative and I have a micro-chip. About all I am missing is a forever home. My adoption fee is only $100.00. Where else can you get this much unconditional love? How about sharing me with your friends and help me find someone who will love me forever? (Less)

    Very loving, protective animal. He barks at you first until he gets to know who you are, then he licks you and begs you to pet him. He knows how to speak and lay down and sit. He is up to date on shots. But needs his shots in February 2015. It breaks our heart to get rid of him but we are moving and our new landlord doesn't allow dogs.

    I am George. I am about 2 1/2 years old and am a lab mix. I have not had a very easy life. In July of this year I was diagnosed with Heartworm. I underwent the nasty treatments it took to get me well and I have recovered. I was severely neglected in my prior home and I am really wishing for a miracle this Christmas that I find a family who will love me and give me the chance to love them back. My new family needs to make sure I stay on Heartworm medication next Summer to assure I don't get Heartworm again. Come on out and show me that there are kind people who love animals.

    Say Hello to Gus. He is almost three years old and is a Rottie mix. He is a good size boy. He does not like men. We assume this is from being abused previously by a man. His normal reaction is just fear when he is around a man. He does not warm up to men given time. He is good with women and kids and listens very well. He has never attacked anyone but does eye men very carefully. He has been great knowing the boundaries for his property and staying on it. He does have a high prey drive and has been known to kill squirrels and ferrets. He probably wouldn't be the best around cats due to his prey drive. He is a beautiful boy who just needs a ...

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We celebrated her second birthday here at the shelter this week. Dixie originally was imported into the Country from Iraq when her dad was serving our Country. He did all of the work necessary to bring her back to him so she would have a better life. Unfortunately he did not anticipate at that time going back to Iraq to live and when he did he found out he could not take her back with him. On her import papers she is listed as a Shepherd Mix. She is VERY well trained. Sit, stay, shake, walks on a leash, housebroken and is not a barker. When you go to take her outside she waits for you to exit the door first. So very polite. She appears to ... (Read More)gravitate more towards men than women, which is really not surprising but when she is in a home with a woman she does protect the woman. She has never really been around small children so not sure how that would work. She seems to be fine with the children that come into the shelter but we would want to check her with smaller children. She isn't a huge dog - she is only about 50 pounds. She isn't extremely high energy (at least not here at the shelter). If you are, or have been, in the military and are looking for a new best friend we will waive her adoption fee. It is more important to find her a home where she is comfortable. She likes routine. You don't have to be a wounded warrior to qualify to have her adoption fee waived. Come on out and visit Dixie. It's time for her to find her final home and feel secure. (Less)

    Daisy has been my roommate and good friend for 7 years but I am moving into a condominium and they will not allow her. She needs a fenced yard as that is all she knows.

She is in good health but has developed three skin tags however the vet says they pose no problem. She is very protective of me, her space and the house.

    Mr. Nelson is a 2 yr old Min/pin/rat Terrier mix. He is working on his manners... he came to us from another shelter where he was VERY overwhelmed and acting out.

Lab Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Huntington is a sweet old man that has some trouble hearing and seeing but he is so appreciative of all we do for him. He was born sometime between 2000 and 2003 - it is hard to tell. He has great hips but does have some arthritis in his spine and he sees the chiropractor every two weeks and that really helps him. Overall he is very healthy and would love a home with a fenced in yard. He enjoys his time outside, but loves to come in and be with us. Do you have room in your home and heart to give this senior a place to enjoy his golden years?

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-15-00116Farley (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Farley is looking for his forever home with someone who loves to go for long walks and hikes (and has the time and patience to help him reach his full potential at walking politely on a leash without pulling), someone who is consistent, patient, has lots of energy, and also someone who loves to cuddle and give affection! If you have these qualities, Farley has so much potential to be your extremely loyal and loving companion. We originally fostered Farley from Midwest Animal Rescue while we were living in Minneapolis. While we were fostering him, he had a health condition which cost the rescue organization vet bills and medication bills. ... (Read More)After fostering him for over a year, the organization told us that they could no longer afford to foster him out, and that if we did not want to adopt him, he would have to be euthanized. We had grown to love Farley and could not let him be euthanized, although we had not intended to adopt a dog at the time. So Farley became officially ours in 2010. Since then, we have moved to Iowa City and we've had a daughter who is currently 18 months old. Farley no longer has a health issue - we later discovered that his issues had been due to a tick born illness, which we were able to eliminate with the correct medication. Farley is currently a healthy, approximately 7 year old male (Midwest Animal Rescue was unsure of his exact age). We believe that he is an american staffordshire terrier possibly mixed with a spaniel of some sort. We have never seen Farley be aggressive toward a human. In fact, it's been the opposite. Farley loves adult attention from anyone willing to pet him or give him a belly rub. He loves to cuddle and be near his human. He will excitedly greet you (or anyone coming into your home) at the door. We have one other dog in our home, and with the exception of one unfortunate incident right after we adopted the second dog, our dogs have gotten along great since. Farley has never attacked another dog, and he has been around a few other family members dogs. He does, however, bark and growl aggressively at dogs through the window and also when we go on walks. Farley has quite a bit of nervous energy and seems to be an anxious guy. He does bark a lot through our window at passers by. He loves to leave the house for car rides, but will not sit down, even during a several hours long car ride. He stands the entire time and paces excitedly. We have found that lots of exercise and consistent training and discipline can help with Farley's high energy, barking, and anxious behaviors. Sadly, we have come to the conclusion that with a small child of our own now, we do not have the time to devote to Farley that he desperately needs and deserves. The other reason for our finding Farley a new home is that, although Farley has always adored constant adult attention, he sometimes seems a bit annoyed by our curious 18 month old, who loves to follow him around and 'bother' him. He has given her a couple of unhappy grunts and we would hate for this to become an issue. We think Farley would do best in a house with no small children, although older kids should be absolutely fine. We also think that Farley would do best in a home with no cats. (Less)

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.

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

    I think I have been forgotten. I am Antonio. My first birthday came and went in October and here I still am. I'm not complaining - I like everyone here at the shelter - but ohhhh it would be so much better to have my own home. I am probably a shepherd/ lab mix and am not a huge boy. I still love to play and romp and I am still a little mouthy when we are playing but I am learning my manners pretty well. I have had lots of different roommates here at the shelter and I enjoy playing with the other dogs. I like to chase the cats if they are in the hall but I haven't hurt one. I like everyone but am probably a little too high energy ... (Read More)for small kids. I am really good around here and don't go to the bathroom in my kennel and I have the routine around here down pat. I have pretty much giving up trying to get attention when someone comes in to look at dogs I thought maybe sitting pretty and quiet would work but it hasn't. I have a little bit of separation anxiety and if you crate me and leave me I will do whatever I have to do to get out of the crate. I would be best in a home with another dog so I have companionship or with someone who is home most of the time. I will need plenty of toys so I have something to play with. I have been neutered, I am current on all of my shots, I have been heartworm checked and am negative and I have been micro-chipped. My adoption fee is only $100.00. Tell your friends I am here and looking for a family to call my own. (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

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

    Well it's been just about 6 months since I was surrendered with my sister Merry here at the shelter. I came in as Gabe and then I got adopted and my name changed to Max (which is what I go by now). I got returned because I got bossy with the other dog in the house. Then I got adopted again and once again I got bossy and thought I was in charge so I got returned. I got along great with my sister when I first got to the shelter. I am about 2 1/2 years old and I am a Jack Russell Terrier. I do fine with other dogs in the beginning then I want to be in charge so I would probably do best in a single dog home. I absolutely do not like cats, ... (Read More)in any way, shape or form. I need an owner who understands that they need to be in charge 100% of the time and not give me the chance to be in charge. I would be a great companion for an older individual or couple. I love people and think I am a lap dog. I play a little too rough for little kids but I would be fine in a home with older kids. I am housebroken, I do like to bark at strangers and cats. I am great about eating and not food aggressive at all. I have never had a problem with the shelter staff - I do what I am told. I am unique as I have two different color eyes. If you can't adopt me, do you know someone who can? I am neutered, current on shots, heartworm negative and have been micro-chipped. Six months in a shelter is a lifetime for a kid like me. My adoption fee is only $50.00. (Less)

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

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

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