Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Coco had a family that loved her. She loves kids and dogs. They broke her heart. They abandoned her at a high kill shelter with 700 dogs fighting for their lives on a daily basis. Coco is potty trained and needs a person that will not abandon her again--her heart cannot be broken again :( She is goofy and silly and 'just a kid'. She is the perfect 'family' dog. Can you please give her a chance at love? She is currently in foster and not in immediate danger but her days at foster are limited.

For that reason we are trying to find a home for them together. Wilma is a happy and fun loving dog. She ... (Read More)likes to initiate play with her friend Betty. She gets along with other dogs in addition to Betty, but prefers to play with her. Wilma does love her food and will do a little dance to try and convince you to reward her with a treat.

She will make you smile and you will find yourself hugging her a lot. Wilma likes to explore her surroundings but she does not bark much at all, even when she finds a rabbit on the other side of the fence. She just watches it in interest. Wilma does come back to you when called. Her adventurous ways sometimes means she pulls on the leash at times, but she is easily corrected and it doesn't last. She is a great passenger in the car and likes to sleep on the bed with you near your feet. Wilma is housetrained and has good indoor manners. She has not needed to be crated in her foster home.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Chiclet is a little bit of candy coated fun. Chiclet is a little 7 pound Chihuahua who is seven years old. We rescued Chiclet from a local shelter where he was not getting any interest from potential adopters. We don't know why. He is adorable, playful and loving. Chiclet loves to play and fetch toys. He is good with other dogs and will play nicely with another dog as well. He will keep himself entertained with toys or he will keep his people entertained by fetching whatever they throw. Chiclet is also a lap dog who loves to curl up with you can do some Netflix and chill. Chiclet doesn't need much room or a lot of exercise to be a ... (Read More)happy dog, he just needs a loving home. Chiclet likes to sleep in bed with his people. This is especially needed on nights when it is storming or even raining. If he can hide under the covers with you he will be fine. If it is going to storm during the day when his people are away from home he prefers to have a closet or small space to hide in during the storm. You don't have to worry about Chiclet being a yappy barker. We aren't sure why, but his bark is very quiet and cute. Chiclet is housetrained, but because he is a small dog with a small bladder, he does need to get out frequently. Chiclet is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and heartworm tested. Now all he needs is to find his perfect forever home. If you think that could be your home, please begin the adoption process by completing our adoption application that can be found on our website at www.furfunrescue.org.

Tummy rubs and ear scratches are welcome. If you scratch my butt I will love you for at least 15 minutes, I can't reach it on my own. If you would like to take Most people look at me and see only a Black Lab. Either I'm smarter than the average lab or one of my parents was mixed with something else. I have many lab traits like my big webbed feet and my ball drive. I will fetch a ball until I'm ready to drop. The other part of me is smarter than the typical big dumb happy lab. ...

My foster mom says I need a forever home with a fenced yard and someone to take me through an obedience class, I love to learn. She seems to think we should walk sedately down the street with me on her left side. I much prefer going at my own pace and dragging her along like a kite in the wind behind me.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Mack. He is not quite two years old. He is probably a Staffordshire Terrier/Lab mix. He is dominant. He did very well with the husband in the house and he could do anything he wanted to do. He did great with small children but the older kids not so much. He bit a 9 year old visitor in the home unprovoked after playing ball. We are not sure what may have triggered the bite but we do not want to see him adopted into a home with children. We will be having the trainer work with him so we can make a final determination on his temperament. Our best guess is that only a dominant male will work for this guy. He is beautiful and ... (Read More)does know some basic commands. He is neutered, current on his shots. He was an outside dog and preferred it that way - apparently he does not like coming into the house. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ms. Lucy just turned a year old. She is a Siberian mix with two different color eyes. She is a pretty shy girl and is terrified of men. When a man approaches her she pees (submissive peeing). She is shy around other dogs but we have her with a roommate to help with that. She just needs a woman owner who will take it slow with her and let her adjust slowly. She loves to snuggle up with the volunteers here. She is housebroken except the submissive thing around men. We don't have enough history on her to know why she is afraid of men and don't even want to contemplate why - we just want to look forward with her life. Lucy is spayed, ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-19-00218Katie (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Unfortunately sometimes PFP doesn't get it right on the first time around. That is the case here. Her name is Katie and she is 5 months old. She was adopted into a home with kids ranging from 4 to 10 years old. It is reported that she jumps on the kids, nips at them and the kids were terrified of her. We were told she should never have been adopted into a home with children. At 8 weeks old when she left us we saw no reason she could not be with children. In fact, after doing temperament check on her again yesterday - we still see no reason not to adopt her to a home with children but until she is trained the time with young children ... (Read More)will have to be monitored and her behavior corrected. Does she need training? Absolutely. Is she all puppy? Absolutely. She needs a strong pack leader in her human. She needs to learn that she is not in charge. Fortunately she is still a baby and her behavior for jumping and nipping can certainly be broken. We know mom was a Shepherd mix but as Katie gets older she sure appears to be more Border Collie than Shepherd mix. She does seem to know the command of sit and while having her on a leash she seems to do fairly well. We believe she is pretty much housebroken. This pretty girl needs exercise and training to get rid of the bad behavior that has now become a habit. Alternatively, she needs a job using what appears to be her natural herding instincts. She gets along well with other dogs. She was not tested with cats. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Ms. Mollie. All of her vetting records show she is a Shepherd mix. She is gonna be 5 in November. She is an absolutely amazing dog.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-14-00483Murphy (male)

Poodle Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Mr. Murphy is one of those dogs that aren't the always easiest to find a home for. He requires a single person home - no dual home for him as he picks one person in the home to love and is not very nice with the rest of them. He gets very protective over his chosen individual. He is reported as being housebroken. He takes a while to warm up - not the most social dog in the world. Would be perfect for someone who is alone 90% of the time and willing to crate him when company is present.

    Ember is a great loving family pet. Her only draw back is that she does not like other dogs. Though she has never bitten or attacked another dog, she can be quite aggressive toward them.

She waits patiently for her food, you can take her bone away and she will not growl or bark. Few to no accidents in the house and has not had a chewing incedent in a couple years. We do not kennel her when we are no home either. Just a wonderful pet. The problem comes from ...

He loves to play fetch with the tennis ball and get belly rubs. Rooney is a very loving dog and this decision to find him a new home was not easy, but we think it will be best for him.

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.

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!

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.

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Tabitha has been in her temporary home for 3 weeks and Julie says she is ready to find a family to be her permanent home! Julie gave us the following assessment: -Will tolerate the crate, but gets agitated if for too long a stretch. -Loves walks, a bit fearful of other dogs. Does not go into the house without being picked up. -A bit Food aggressive- best to feed away from other dogs. -Tolerates cats, no problems with mine -Has warmed up to Olivia (6 year old) nicely. no aggression noted. -Potty training- goes outside but not consistently. Poops and pees on my deck or sidewalk & occasionally on the grass! -Likes to eat once a day about 1/2 ... (Read More)cup & some treats in her dish. Might do better with a smaller # of other pets (or maybe it's just my food crazy beagles!) -She is shy and a little fearful but so wants to be loved, she wiggles with excitement when I come home and is getting better at not cowering when I go to pick her up. Julie and Olivia have done an awesome job with Tabitha! And now she is ready for a home of her own! Tabitha is a 9 year old Silky Terrier. She weighs about 11.4 pounds. Tabitha's adoption fee is $185.00. If you are interested in adopting Tabitha, please complete our adoption application at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com/adoption.html Thanks! (Less)

    Margery is about two years old and she came into us with her two pups. She was originally in Oklahoma and was abandoned along with her babies. Because of the inability of shelters in that area to handle all of the animals that are dumped she was transferred to us in order to find her a forever home. She is a very sweet girl who seems to love everyone once she gets over being afraid of you We are currently getting her ready for her spay and she will be all ready to find a family to love her. Her foster in Oklahoma says she was great with kids and was housebroken. We have no information yet on how she deals with cats. As to what breed ... (Read More)she is -- that is your guess. We know her pups look Boxer but unsure on her so it is possible the pups are getting their looks from dad. Her 'travel' papers say she is a Catahoula mix. (Less)

    Rocky needs YOU!!! Rocky was saved from a very high-kill shelter with over 700 dogs. He spent over 60 day in that hell-hole and was saved the day he was going to be killed. He is a good boy. He loves to play with other dogs and is a PEOPLE LOVER. Rocky is mellow and yet athletic. He loves to cuddle. He will jump a fence if he sees a cat or anything that resembles a cat--so he does need a non-cat home as well as a home that is experience with 'jumpers' (or leapers). Otherwise, he is a perfect companion and is looking for love. He is FULLY VETTED and is neutered. If you can give him a wonderful home please TEXT me 319-471-0752. ...

    [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.

    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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-05-00514Bravo (male)

Beagle Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Bravo is a sweet and shy Beagle mix who is 2 years old. He weighs about 35 pounds. Bravo walks well on a leash. He is shy, so he walks a step or two behind you. He is very loving and sleeps in bed with his foster mom. He is very well behaved when left home alone, so crating is not necessary. Bravo is a gentle soul who is looking for a home that will build his confidence and show him the joys of being a treasured family member. Bravo came from a hoarder home and lived with at least 20 other dogs and very little human contact. Bravo may take some time to warm up to new people, but once he trusts, he will bond quickly to those who are ... (Read More)patient and loving. Bravo has grown leaps and bounds and loves to explore, roll in the grass, is learning about toys and enjoys a good belly rub. Bravo's forever home should have another dog and a fenced yard. Bravo loves to run and feel the wind. He is still learning about fetch, but hopefully that will come with time. He would not enjoy a home with small children. Little ones with high pitched voices and sudden movements would scare him. Bravo is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He is not quite fully house trained so will continue to need training and guidance in that area. For more information about Bravo you can contact Roxanne at rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-03-00466Luna (female)

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)

Paco came to United Yorkie Rescue in May 2016. A sweet 12lb. 10yr old Yorkie boy found as a stray in IL.

He's so sweet, heart worm negative, is fine with children who are respectful of his small size (older ...

Paco wold prefer not to be confined, he barks when kenneled preferring to roam. He is healthy but has a dry eye that's he's being treated for, with hopes that after treatment it'll clear up.

He's ready to settle into his retirement home and provide lots of love and entertainment in exchange for snuggles, treats and a comfy bed!

She has all the playfulness of a puppy, yet is intent on cuddling and basically SLEEPING on top of you.

She waits her turn in the pack. Can you open your heart to Gracie? (Less)

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)

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)

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: 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)

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!
