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

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-28-00700Tucker (male)

Great Pyrenees    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I've had this dog for about 5 years. He is a great dog. GreAt protector. He doesn't bother cats. He protects my geese ducks and chickens. He runs well with other non dominant dogs but has recently expressed grumpiness towards my husband and father. He likes to be top dog. We have small kids and he is beginning to make me nervous around them If he gets in a grumpy spell he pays no attention to who is around. I know he would do someone real well as a protector that doesn't have small kids to worry about.

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-28-00367Sampson (male)

Mastiff Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Sampson is almost 5 months old. He is a beautiful pup who is already hitting 45 pounds. Our best 'guess' is that he has some Mastiff in him but what else is totally unknown by us. He has an amazing personality. He is not yet fully housetrained. He was surrendered because he gets overly excited with the kids and because of that and the housebreaking he was not allowed to be a member of the family but rather was left outside. A little bit of patience, lots of love and he will be an amazing family pet. Because of his size already he would be a better fit for a home with kids over the age of 8. We have gotten him all ready for his new ... (Read More)home - he is neutered, current on his shots, wormed and micro-chipped. Just looking for the right family. He has never been around other dogs in the home but since he is a puppy we don't anticipate any issues with that. He has never been around a cat. (Less)

German Shepherd    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 

    My name is Andy and even though I haven't had this name long, I know it by heart! I am 4-5 years old. I was found running loose on the highway in the very hot heat one day. I had been on the run for quite some time as I was dirty, tired and didn't feel good at all. All of my joints hurt and it was very difficult to walk. After I was rescued the vet told me I had something called Lyme disease. No wonder I didn't feel good! I went to live with a nice couple and after taking my medicine I feel so much better! Now I get to lay around all day in the cool house with all the food and water I want. I hang out with my 3 foster siblings ... (Read More)that are also German Shepherds and my 2 orange cat foster brothers! I am so good with my kitty foster brothers that I must impress my foster parents, because they keep telling me what a good boy I am! I love to play ball and run around the yard with my friends. I still need to be careful with my joints, but I'm getting better every day! The home I dream about is a family that loves me and it would be nice to have a fur sibling too. I know all my commands and listen very well. Do you have room in your heart and home for me? I promise to be good and always faithful to you! Please visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application, learn more about the adoption process and fees, and view other dogs available through the German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Iowa. All GSDRI's dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. A fence is strongly encouraged.

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

    Faith has been at her volunteer home now for about 2 weeks and is doing great at learning how to be a pet! Her favorite thing to do is to lie in front of the window and watch things outside! During the day she likes to nap unless she goes outside to hang out! She really likes to be outside to watch everything going on. She doesn't really play much, but that could change if she was introduced to a playful dog. She is wonderful as a lap dog, doesn't bark, chew, or jump! At most, she occasionally barks in her sleep! All of her teeth have been pulled as they were icky. Faith is being fed dry dog food with broth and occasionally some tuna or ... (Read More)chicken and loves it! She is doing well with all people, including a very young neighbor! Faith does well in the bath and is potty trained. She isn't great about letting her humans know when to go out, but she is taken out about three times a day and is very consistent! She is okay on a tie out and will walk on a leash. However, right now, she is so distracted by everything that it is a VERY SLOW walk! Her volunteer home has noticed that she is surprised by strange noises but is always improving. Faith is a 7 year old Shih Tzu and weighs about 13 pounds. Faith's adoption fee is $190.00.

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Seizures,
 Aggressive 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] We have had Gully since 8 weeks old, he's now 12 years old. He has always been very well cared for & for whatever reason he has always been agressive towards men especially. He has nipped at several people & now that we have a baby we cannot take the chance that he may nip her. Gully's dream would be to sit on your lap all day. He is the cutest thing ever & was our first 'baby' but we can't take the risk of him nipping the baby. He's very loyal & protective of his masters but will take a while to warm up. He is approx. 10 lbs & in great physical health.

Great Dane    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Atlas is a five year-old, healthy and playful Great Dane who loves his family and is very affectionate. He can be protective of his owners, and a bit nervous around taller adults who approach him quickly, so it would be good to socialize him in the company of neighbors and friends. He loves long walks, playing fetch and tug-of-rope, and going on drives. He travels well and is potty-trained. I need a good home to keep him safe and loved. Thank you.

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

    Suzy was saved AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE from death at a high kill, over populated shelter. She is calm and sweet and loves ALL humans. She is about 60lbs and just wants to spend the rest of her years being a member of a family. She rode in the van for 3 days with 6 teenagers and she was in heaven. She sits with me outside and loves to put her head on my lap--gratefully loving me. The day this picture was taken she was just hanging on my front porch enjoying the day. We do not know of any particular health issues with Suzy right now. She seems happy and healthy. She did have a hysterectomy 2 months ago and a few masses removed from her ... (Read More)mammaries. All benign. However, given her age (9-11?) all we can ask is for LOVE for her--no matter how many years she has left. Rescue is willing to discuss keeping up with vet bills for the remainder of her life if wonderful home can be found that will provide all the love and kindness Suzy deserves. Look at those eyes!! She loves walks and car rides too :) (Less)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi Dachshund lovers. My name is Rue. I am a young man, just over a year old and weigh 17 pounds. I'm really a Chiweenie, a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix so I'm a little taller than most Dachshunds. I trot just like a Doxie when I'm out in the yard. Like most Dachshunds I am scared and shy when I meet new people and new dogs. You need to be patient with me and wait until I'm comfortable coming to you. In my past someone was not very kind to me. Once I'm comfortable with you I will jump in your lap and snuggle with you on the couch or in bed. I like to play and will soon be playing with the other dogs in your house. I love to get outside and ... (Read More)run around the yard. My foster mom gave me these things called toys, I had never had one before so I'm just figuring out how to play with them. I absolutely love dog beds, but I don't really like crates. I am housetrained, so there really isn't any reason to put me in a crate. I will just hang out in my dog bed and maybe bark at the mailman when he comes until you get home. I really need a fenced yard in my forever home because I really enjoy running around outside. Another dog in my home would be great, someone that can show me the ropes and show me I can trust you. Because I'm a Dachshund I don't enjoy small children, they scare me. Older kids are ok, just more people to cuddle me. I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested and microchipped. What more can I do to be ready for you? I ready, willing and happy to meet you. Just contact my foster mom at lynette@furfunrescue.org or call 319-310-3120. She can answer any questions you have about me. You can start the adoption process by completing the adoption application on the website www.furfunrescue.org. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200. (Less)

Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

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

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Ben is an Old English Bulldog who absolutely loves people and kids of all ages. He enjoys long walks or runs along side a bike. He also gets along great with our 2 small breed female dogs. However, for some reason, he doesn't like any other dogs & becomes very aggressive towards them. We unfortunately just don't have time for him anymore. Our new business requires our attention away from home and the dogs, for about 16 hours a day. Leaving virtually no time for Bens walks or other attention. He does have seizures on occasion but is on medication to control them.

    Meet THOR, a strikingly handsome one year old Coonhound/German Shepard mix! He is smart and loving. An ideal home for this big guy would be someone wanting a great walking or jogging partner. Maybe a person who is looking for a bunny chaser in their garden! He has a very strong prey drive and would love a hunting partner. He will need someone who will respect thy neighbor if they have kitties, because he is not a fan, and can jump a 4 ft fence. He is also an awesome watch dog! He would be better with older kids, and would enjoy someone willing to go for long walks! Thor is fixed, heartworm negative, vaccinated, chipped, and only $100 for ...

Black and Tan Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max! I am a 2 ½ year old German Shepherd and probably some sort of Hound mix. I'm an active boy with lots of energy to burn so I need a family that will give me a lot of exercise. I'm cool with car rides so maybe you can take me to the park for a run! I like to play really RUFF with my doggy friends so I would do best in a home with other young, high energy dogs that don't mind my style of play. (I'd be ok as an only dog too.) I get along well with the other dominant-neutral dogs that are my size in my foster home, however, I don't do well with small breeds. Annnddd I'm pretty reactive to cats so a home ... (Read More)without cats would be best, hehe! I weigh about 75lbs now but could stand to gain some additional weight so I might knock little kids over. I like balls, and if you tire me out enough, I will relax and cuddle up next to you. I LOVE snuggling and getting attention from my people. I know the basic commands but would like a family who could continue my training. I walk well on a leash with a little pull. I do pretty good in my crate but will make a fuss sometimes. I have some nervous energy which can be displayed when I'm in my crate. Because of this, I probably need to be crated during the day so that I don't get into anything while you are gone. Having other dogs around seems to help me stay a bit calmer though! Because I am such a tall guy and an excellent jumper, I will need a home with a secure 5-6 foot fence. I have been known to sneak under a chain link fence before so a wood fence or very secure chain link fence is super important! I tend to bark at noises outside like thunder, fireworks, etc. so hopefully your neighbors won't mind - woops! :) Do I sound like the beset fit ever for you?! Please visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application, learn more about the adoption process and fees, and view other dogs available through the German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Iowa. All GSDRI's dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. A fence is strongly encouraged.

Shih Tzu    Age: Puppy

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

    Gizmo is believed to be an Imperial Shizu--he is about 4-5lbs. His hair is now shorter--because he needed grooming when we got him a few weeks ago. He was neglected but that has not affected him in any way. He is ready for lots and lots love and to give the same back. His previous owner had him since he was a puppy and then just one day decided he did not want him anymore. I cannot imagine the confusion that Gizmo is feeling. This little baby that loves to sleep on my chest is ready for a loving home where he will be treated like the love bundle that he is. He will need housebreaking but he is great in a kennel.

    Toby is a very unusual looking lover. He is about 45bls and solid. He is extremely gentle with all and everything he meets. He is quiet and just wants to snuggle. He was rescued from a very high kill shelter then he spent 6 months in boarding and has been in foster now for about 5 months. He is developing a little bit of cloudiness in one eye--due to age progression. But that does not impair him in any way. He NEEDS a loving home where he knows he can be loved for the rest of his life. Can you be that home? He doesn't take much room--won't demand much. Is kennel trained. Great walker on a leash. Needs YOUR LOVE.

Personality: Very Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hannah was saved from a very high kill shelter. She was there for nearly 60 days and completely overlooked. She was dirty and so afraid she used to hide beneath her bed. She was saved AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE. She shared the kennel with another dog. When I first approached the kennel she looked at me from under the kennel and could not believe I was ACTUALLY talking to HER. Once she noticed that I was talking to her (and not her younger cell mate) she came up to the kennel door and acted like a puppy :( She is a total love bug. She wonders around the house behind me and sits by my feet (like if she is the only dog and has known me for ... (Read More)ever). She will be an excellent companion dog. She gets along with other dogs and cats--but prefers dogs that are not big and IN HER FACE. She is not aggressive at all just 'cranky'. I'm sure in her day, she must have been a spitfire :) (Less)

The foster family that took me in already had 2 cats, and I really don't like cats, well I do think they are delicious, so this is not a good situation for me to be in. I am really slow to warm up to other dogs, and without a slow and proper introduction I can become very ... (Read More)scared.

Great Pyrenees Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Aggressive 

    Beautiful Luna was transplanted from large acreage in South Carolina to Iowa a few months ago into a home with older spaniel and cat in town. She can be very sweet and loving, but doesn't like the current four-legged occupants of our home, or most visitors. She has a companion she is ok with - a young Wiemereiner that she has been raised with. She needs a farm or a home to run with no small children, as she is extremely leary and we are concerned for little people. She has snapped at adults when she feels she is not in control. Just not a good environment for her, but not her fault... our son got her while in the Air Force stationed in ... (Read More)South Carolina and brought her home to Iowa once he got out. We love her but she is too much for us and our grandkids are main concern. We won't let her in the house as she is aggressive towards our old spaniel and we are afraid of what she would do to our cat. She is in a very comfortable shop, but needs a better life where she can run the show and be more free. She is a runner and doesn't listen terribly well, but can be quite adorable on her terms. We only wish we had a farm as a second home. She is almost 2 years old. She absolutely loves our son and us most of the time, but does not like visitors much or the noises that accompany living in town. (Less)

    Dillon is about a year and a half old. He came to us with a broken femur in his right rear leg. We have had that fixed and he has recovered very well. Occasionally when he over does it he has a slight limp but no pain. He is still shy but with love and patience he does come around. There is no aggression in him at all. We believe he is a Rottie mix. He is doing very well on his basic commands and we certainly believe he is housebroken. We will require a fenced in yard for him as he still spooks easily.

    Tango is a sweet natured 3 year old Border Collie mix who weighs 45 pounds.

He likes to be near people and is learning the joys of pets and cuddles. He is a quiet boy and hasn't barked in his foster home yet. Tango came from a hoarder home and lived with at least 20 other dogs and very little human contact.

(Read More)dog and a fenced yard. He really enjoys playing gently with another dog. He would not enjoy a home with small children. Little ones with high pitched voices and sudden movements would scare him. Tango is housetrained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-10-00219Chloe (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Hello, my name is Chloe. I'm 8 years old and weigh approximately 85lbs. I'm a very smart girl and absolutely love my people! My foster mom says I'm beautiful - can't you tell?! I was surrendered to GSDRI when my owner died :( I loved him very much and was very attached to him. I absolutely love to please and will easily become devoted to my new family. Because of this, I need to be the only pet in the house as I have been the only pet my entire life and tend to get jealous if other dogs are around. I also have a high prey drive so will likely not do well with cats. I'll take off after squirrels so I also need a fenced in yard. I do really ... (Read More)well with children though and love to play (especially with toys)! I know all the basic commands, crate well but have also been able to free roam with my old family. My foster mom is impressed that I don't bark when people come to the door - that's rare she says :) I do have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) which requires an enzyme supplement with my food. Please keep this in mind as I will need consistent care with my new family, My ideal home would have moderate coming and going/activity in the house. A family with mature children would be nice. A home where the love I give is returned. Please visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application, learn more about the adoption process and fees, and view other dogs available through the German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Iowa. All GSDRI's dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. A fence is strongly encouraged. Every dog is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm checked. (Less)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Timber came to us with 12 babies in tow. She was scheduled to be euthanized in a kill shelter and all of you here on Facebook pulled together and helped find additional foster homes so her and her babies weren't left behind. Not only did she come in with babies but she was also heartworm positive and she underwent treatment in April for it and has recovered. She seems is a happy girl and we haven't found anyone that she doesn't like. She was very protective when her babies were little and in fact she did destroy a kitten when it wandered into the area she was at. Since weaning the babies we have not seen that protective nature. Her papers ... (Read More)indicate she is a Chow/Lab mix. She is housebroken and will do fine with male dogs if properly introduced. She does great with kids. (Less)

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

    Brittany is about 7 months old and we believe she may be more Springer Spaniel than anything else. She is a very scared little girl. You see she was abandoned at the ripe age of about 6 to 7 weeks to fend for herself. When she was finally caught she was terrified of humans. We have been working with her to get her through it but she will rquire a LOT of time, patience and LOVE to get through it. There is not an aggressive bone in her body. She gets along great with other dogs and doesn't have much reaction to cats. She will take a lot of time to settle into her new home but when she does she will be an awesome family member. She has ... (Read More)been spayed, is current on her shots, has been micro-chipped and wormed. All she needs is a home with the patience to give her time to feel comfortable. Her adoption fee is $125.00. If you are interested in potentially adopting her we recommend you complete an adoption application which you will find on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-05-00191Hercules (male)

American Bulldog    Age: Puppy

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

    Unfortunately the adoption for Hercules did not work out. Being a Bulldog when put outside he apparently felt indignant about it and wanted to come back inside and his way of telling his adopter he wanted in was to tear apart the storm door. We were told it only took one to three minutes for him to do so. We make him go outside here and he fortunately has never torn apart our storm doors. We were also told he went potty twice on the concrete instead of going into the yard - this one we can't account for except to say our exercise yards here are gravel. It may take him a while to get used to going potty in grass. He is only about 18 ... (Read More)months old - he is a big boy. He does not get along with other dogs or cats. He needs a single animal home. We were also told he marked his crate in his new home - this is really not very surprising as a lot of male dogs mark their territory. We can tell you that he has no accidents here in his kennel nor does he mark inside the kennel area. He does go around the exercise yard and does his best to mark where every other dog has been since his last trip there. Hercules does NOT like being in a crate. He does fight it. He is still very much a puppy - just a hundred pound pup. He thinks he should sit on your lap. He needs a home that is willing to accept the adjustment period of any dog coming out of a shelter and someone who will teach him basic manners. He is a big boy and small children would not be a good idea. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-02-00494Bailey (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Bailey has been in the shelter since the 1st of March. He originally came in as a stray with absolutely no manners whatsoever. The vet estimated him to be about a year old. Since then he has had lots of work put into him and is slowly learning manners. We believe he is a shepherd mix. The trainer has been working with him and he is amazingly smart - he just needed focus. He gets along with other dogs, can not be around cats, does well with children (just remember he is high energy). He is learning all of his basics like sit, stay, heel, etc. and doing very well at them. We know he is housebroken as far as being here at the kennel. ... (Read More)Bailey is an amazing boy who deserves an active and permanent home. A little bit of work and you will have an amazing lifelong companion. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-06-00446Ernie (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Ernie is a special dog who has come a long way. Ernie is a senior, terrier mix who came to us after he was found by the side of the road completely emaciated and dehydrated. We had never seen a dog that was literally skin and bones. He weighed 11 pounds and he should weigh about 16-18 pounds. After spending a few days at the Eastern Iowa Veterinary Specialty Clinic getting hydrated and running tests we found out he was diabetic and mostly blind. But some insulin and regular meals were all he would need to slowly get healthy again. That is what he has been getting over the last several weeks and he is gaining weight and getting his ... (Read More)strength back. Ernie's diabetes is under control with two injections each day at meal times. We don't know how old Ernie is, but he is probably at least 11 years old. He is mostly blind, but he has no trouble finding his way around his foster home. He can even find his way back in through the dog door from the backyard. Ernie is house trained and has never had an accident; even when he was drinking a lot because his diabetes was still coming under control. If he needs to go out and can't get outside on his own, he will bark to let you know. Of course, Ernie loves his food after being hungry for so long. If you want to see him at his most active, let him know his food is coming soon. He becomes a wiggle worm who is almost impossible to hold onto. Now that he is feeling better and has some energy to pull from he is showing us more of his personality. He loves to have his ears rubbed and his chest scratched. As a senior he takes lots of dog naps and he has a cute, breathy snore when he is sleeping. Ernie is a great guy to just hang out with. Because Ernie is mostly blind we were prefer that he have a fenced yard so he can have some freedom outside. He would also need a home without many stairs or a way to keep him away from any open staircases. The ideal home for Ernie would be a quiet home without small children and someone who can get him out every 4-6 hours. Ernie does fine with other dogs that respect his space and food bowl. If you would like to give Ernie the home he deserves, please complete our adoption application that can be found at www.furfunrescue.org. You can contact lynette@furfunrescue.org if you have questions about Ernie, or call 319-310-3120. You can also see his progress that was documented through a YouCaring page at www.yourcaring.com/help_Ernie. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $150. (Less)

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

    Rocky is a 3 year old, 48 pound American Pit Bull Terrier. With a beautiful chocolate brown coat, white chest, and a dazzling set of peepers that will warm your heart'|Rocky is all that a family could want in a canine companion. Rocky came into rescue through no fault of his own. He was owner surrendered because someone in his home was allergic to him. Rocky is completely house trained and loves to romp around, flipping toys, playing tug, chasing balls, and even snuggling on the couch, but what Rocky enjoys the most are belly rubs and ear massages. He truly loves to be around people and will be just as inclined to sit at your feet and ... (Read More)chew away at a bone as to cruise around with you in your car (he loves car rides but tends to doze off!). Rocky needs to be the only dog in his home. He is curious, but obedient due to his training with Robin Moulds at Alpha House K9's. Rocky knows his basic obedience commands and walks well on a leash. He truly has shown to have a great temperament and beautiful soul through all his trainings. Rocky would do best in a home with a fenced yard where he can run free and explore the world with a family that will love him forever. Rocky is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm tested, and micro chipped.

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.) 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.
