Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi, I'm Rocky! I'm a 7-month-old schnauzer/poodle mix. I only weigh 10 pounds. They tell me I'm handsome, and I have to agree! I am a shy, quiet fellow who really just wants to snuggle with you and enjoy life on a fluffy doggie bed. Potty training? Oh, I'm getting really good at that! My foster family is so proud of me because I haven't had an accident in a looooong time. And walking on a leash? I'm a quick learner and am doing great! When my foster family is at work, I stay in a kennel, but if they leave for a short time, I snuggle down on the doggie bed and am as good as can be! My foster home has 2 adult humans, 2 pre-teen human ... (Read More)boys, three small dogs, and a human baby who visits occasionally. I really like everyone, even the dogs and baby. Cats? Don't know about them, as I haven't met one yet. I'm so calm and easy-going; I think I would get along fine with a cat! Here's what I have puppy dreams about - a fur-ever family that will be patient and gentle with me, since I'm still a little timid. I need a loving family so I can continue to come out of my shell and learn to enjoy Life. Rocky is located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We adopt within a 100 mile radius. Rocky is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm tested, on heartworm preventative, and micro-chipped. Adoption donation $250.

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-20-00520Prince (male)

Boxer    Age: Puppy

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

    We want you to meet Prince. He is about 19 months old and he is a Boxer. He was surrendered to us today after someone got him yesterday off of one of the FB garage sale sites. The person who owned him since he was a few weeks old decided she didn't want him any longer as she didn't have 'time' to exercise him and he refused to listen to her. Unfortunately he scared the child in the short term home and they called the owner and asked to bring him back - she would not take him back - she had already 'replaced' him with 'a new puppy'. So he came to us. Within minutes of being with us we realized he is deaf. No one had told his 'new' ... (Read More)home that he was deaf. We contacted his owner of almost 17 months and asked her what type of hand signals he knew. Guess what - she indicates she didn't know he was deaf. The front of the dog's neck is severely burned from so much use of a shock collar that it is RAW. When we asked the original owner about the shock collar usage she said 'all of her friends told her to shock him when he didn't listen to her'. Guess what he couldn't listen because he couldn't hear you. Needless to say this boy is MUCH better off with us than he was his original owner. No more shock collars for this boy. He is a very sweet boy who wants nothing more than to be loved. We think he may have some ability to hear 'high pitched sounds' but we will complete more testing to determine exactly how much, or little, hearing he really has. Boxers have lots of energy for a long time - they remain puppies for many years. Boxers are loveable and playful but do get pretty rough with their play sessions. This boy is now way behind the curve on learning basic commands because apparently no one paid enough attention to realize he can't hear the commands he is given. We have been told he is housebroken. He has no history with other animals. He can learn - he just needs training to do so and someone who understands they have to use their hands to talk to him. He will make someone with love and patience an excellent family member. (Less)

Pug    Age: Adult

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

    I am a 6 year old playful, fun loving little girl looking for my furever home! I like to pvouslay but I am also a big cuddle bug when I find a lap available for snuggling. I'm a very good girl, fully house-trained and I don't chew on furniture or anything other than my chewies. I get along great with other dogs and love people/children, but small kids make me nervous. I am a little overly curious about something my foster mom calls a cat so I would prefer a home witout cats. As with all pugs, I have a trachea that gets smaller deep within my chest so I sometimes snort and pant when breathing and snore when sleeping. All pugs are silly ... (Read More)and have their quirks; mine is pretty weird. I have a 'foot fetish'! I will pick someone's feet and just stair at them! This quirk makes me even more special. I also have some anxiety issues, but since taking my puppy prozac (low dose - $4 script per month) I am a lot more relaxed and not stressing about silly things. I'm just a happy little girl looking for a family to love me for the pug I am. (Less)

Beagle    Age: Young Adult

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

    Pacino is incredibly affectionate, loves to cuddle and be petted. The scar on his face has been examined by a vet from where we used to live and she said that it will not cause him harm but his fur does grow underneath it still and can cause pressure like a pimple. He has started growling at my 2 year old son and there are no aggression treatment classes near enough that I can afford to go. He would do very well, I think, with a couple that are looking for a loyal, loving dog. I hate to get rid of him but I can't risk it with my kids. He's a good dog. Doesn't like to be separated from his people though. He is housebroken fairly well ... (Read More)but you know how hounds are. (Less)

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 16 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 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 16 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. (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    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!

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-14-00311Journey (female)

Lab    Age: Puppy

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

    This beautiful girl who was found wandering around never had anyone claim her. We have completed her vetting work and Journey is now available for adoption. Her age has been estimated at just a year. She is very shy. Based upon how she acts it would not come as a surprise if she has been abused. She is good with kids and adults. She is eating well and will put back on the weight she needs. She is slowly starting to trust the staff with touching her and petting her. She still is not happy when you try to put a lead on her and take her anywhere (even just to the outside). She has not had one accident inside at all so apparently she was ... (Read More)housebroken prior to coming to us. What does Journey need in a home? She needs a home where she can learn to cuddle up and be loved. She needs a home where she can feel secure and not feel threatened with being abandoned. A fenced in yard would be best as it will take her a while to get through her fear of being on a leash. We have little doubt that without a fenced in yard she will bolt the first time she gets scared. We believe she has probably been tied up quite a bit as she has an indentation around her neck which appears to be from some sort of lead she was tied out with. She doesn't carry a lot of coat so she will need to be an indoor dog. We believe she would be fine with another animal in the home. We are confident she will do great with kids. If you are the right home for Journey and you are interested in this beautiful baby - please submit your adoption application. (Less)

He will need an owner who can handle a dog his size. He loves to play and he would not be a good choice for very small children as he would just bowl over them. He is very intimidating to other dogs and other dogs seem to go instantly on the offensive when he walks by.

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Daisy went to the vet this morning and x-rays were taken of her leg and shoulder. She has a compression injury to her right elbow. It is not a new injury. Because of the size of the left bone and the muscle in the left leg. The best estimate is the injury is a few months old. Because the injury was not taken care of when it was new - at this point there is no way to fix the damage. With several weeks of rest the limp may be lessen, the swelling go down and the pain subside or lessen. She is being confined to a crate with minimal 'out' time for the next several weeks to allow the leg to do some healing. She has been put on an ... (Read More)anti-inflammatory and pain killer. She did great at the vet's office and was very good for the x-rays. She did do some fear barking (vet's description - not ours) at the men who were in the office but fell in love with the vet and assistant who were both women. The vet's comment was 'she is a little lover'. She craves attention and ate it up when someone would pet her. Let's all keep positive thoughts on her healing please. (Less)

    We are calling this guy Cutie. He is about a year and a half old. He is a lab mix (probably mixed with Border Collie). He is drop dead beautiful but is apparently a hand full. TONS of energy - all play, play, play. We were stunned when we were informed this baby has been in five homes in the past two weeks. People just keep dumping him on the free pet sites. We have to ask if anyone ever does research before they get a dog as to the characteristics of the breed(s). Labs are all puppy for at least two years - border collies are high energy for most of their lives. Add those two together and what do you get - basically a lab on steroids. But ...

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Senior

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

    We have been trying for a few days to get a good shot of this boy and today after about an hour of playing with him he finally stood still for a picture. This is Buddy (actually Air Bud). He is about 11 years old and came out of the neglect home. He is reported to be a Rat Terrier/Bichon mix. He is extremely active - he was apparently called 'air bud' because of the way he jumps around. Now that he is feeling better and rid of all of those horrible fleas and his skin is starting to finally heal - he feels great and is all about loving and playing with you. He isn't very shy around strangers - give him two minutes and a treat and you will ... (Read More)be his best friend. This boy will be harder to find a home for because of his age. An awesome home for him would be a retired individual or couple that are still active. He has done great on not going potty inside and he let's you know when he has to go. He does bark when he is locked up but if you just let him play until he wears himself out it isn't a problem. It is absolutely amazing to watch the spirit of these dogs as they come back and know that someone is loving them and caring for them. This guy will make an excellent companion for someone. He is now ready for forever with someone who will love him and care for him. His coat will grow back and he will be adorable. (Less)

    I am Hayden. I am looking for a new home. I am mixed with lots of stuff. First and foremost I am Chihuahua with a little bit of Miniature Pinscher with some terrier thrown in for good measure. I am a little guy at about 5 pounds. My birthday is 4/23/11 so I am still pretty young. I have lived with other dogs so I know how to play nice. My old mom trained me to go potty on a paper in the house instead of outside so if you want me to go outside to go potty you will have to teach me how to do that. I will be ready for adoption this weekend so stop on out and visit me.

Pomeranian Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    I am Lil Bit - I am a three year old Pomeranian mix (probably Chihuahua) - I am not very big boy - I am only about 4 pounds. I will be ready for adoption before the end of this week. I am a little on the shy side right now but I will open up shortly. I get along with other dogs. I was never really housebroken - I was paper trained but it should be pretty easy to teach me to go outside. If you are looking for a little cutie - I may be it.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

    Red is a very active boy, loves to be busy. We have two other dogs, a large female and a smaller male. There is conflict with the male at times, as the smaller boy had recently had an incident with a larger, different dog. At times the two boys play very well. Red showed up at our home a few weeks ago, we have been doing the best we can, but these few incidents with our smaller boy are just a little much. RED loves to retrieve, run, jump, etc, he will even throw the ball on command (for my husband). We cannot keep him, to much tension for our long-term 'kids'! NOTE: Red is no longer in our home, we were able to find a shelter ... (Read More)placement for him, so he still needs a home. He will be at Heartland Humane Society in Ottumwa Iowa until a home is found for him. (Less)

    This is Jeronimo - he will be a while before he is ready for a new home. We will not post any before pictures of him - suffice it to say it was not pretty. His ear is pretty cut up and we are very slowly getting it to heal. His skin is in horrible condition from the amount of fleas. He does NOT care for men or strangers. Someone tried to open his kennel door over the weekend and he went nuts. He is doing great with us and does fine if one of us pick him up and hand him to someone else. He is reported to be Lily's dad. He is about three years old. He is supposedly a Pug/Rat Terrier/Bichon mix. We will be seeking a special foster ... (Read More)home for him with the ongoing medical care and the skittish nature. He is great once he gets to know you but prior to that you wanna watch yourself. When he is all healed he will not be adopted into a home with children and quite possibly will need to live with a female only. We will have to see as time goes on. (Less)

Poodle    Age: Senior

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

    Charlie is an 11 year old toy poodle who came into our rescue as a stray. He had been on his own for a few weeks before some nice folks took him in and called us. His fur was matted to the skin, he had fleas, needed dental work, and some good groceries. His nose was scraped up and bleeding from digging in trash cans for food. Charlie is all fixed up and ready for his forever home. Since Charlie was so matted he was shaved and is still growing his beautiful poodle coat back. Until he gets his coat back he is enjoying his sweaters because they keep him warm. He is blind in one eye but that does not slow him down one bit. Charlie is very ... (Read More)energetic and playful, if we didn't know he is 11 we would not have believed it. He likes to be held like a baby and cuddled, and will sleep right next to you at night. He gets along well with dogs and cats. Charlie has been trying to tell us his story. When we pick him up he talks to us and grumbles. Like a lot of dogs he likes to scratch his back by wriggling around on the floor, Charlie does his back scratching with style. While he is wriggling around he pumps his front legs up and down. It is quite the acrobatic routine. He is just generally pretty entertaining. He has survived quite the ordeal being on the streets alone and deserves a comfortable, warm, inside, loving home. If you would like give that to him please send us an adoption application. Charlie has had all his vaccinations, been neutered, Heartworm tested, micro chipped, and is on Heartworm preventative. The adoption application can be completed at www.furfunrescue.org. For more information about Charlie please contact lynette@furfunrescue.org or call 319-310-3120. Adoption donation $150. (Less)

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

    Patches has always been a loving dog who enjoys cuddling and being played with. He does very well with adults or people he sees as dominant over him, hence struggling with young children because they are not dominant. Patches has not done well adjusting to our young daughter. We've tried working with him, but as our daughter has entered her toddler years it has become increasingly difficult for him. It is heartbreaking to know that he can no longer live with us, but we are pregnant with our second child and are confident the situation in our home will not get any better. Patches would be a great companion for the right person.

    We would like you to meet Patriot's newest guest. This is Fluffy. She is almost a year old and we believe she may have some Border Collie in him. The person who surrendered her said she was a Siberian Husky but as you can clearly see that is not the case. She is an awesome little guy. VERY friendly. Just wants to play and be loved. Until today when she got to us she has never had any shots. She has also not been spayed yet but will be prior to going to her new home. She will also be micro-chipped. She has no experience with other animals according to her surrender form. She is reported to be housebroken. She was a house dog. It is reported ... (Read More)that she does not like being left alone but so often that is just training. It is reported by the prior owner that she will chase squirrels and cats. No history of getting one. She is not leash trained but we will start working on that and her first time out she did very well. The only command it appears she knows is sit. She needs a home that will truly love her and care for her. She is a little insecure but with TLC that will change. (Less)

    Jersey Girl says Hi, how are you? I was living with my family, being a good girl, but my family was forced to give me up. It was nothing I did, or they did, and we are all suffering for it.

I know, some people are shocked about that, but I am really a good girl, I just miss the love and attention I used to have in a home. Please let me show you what a good girl I truly am. I love to play with water, the hose is such fun! I think it's really funny when the humans yelp because I share the water with them. I don't see the problem, who wouldn't want to ...

He's beautiful, doesn't have alterations to his ears. He's my baby and I hate to do it but I think someone else can give him a good home. Contact me by phone or email.

    Hello, my name is Ida, and I am looking for my perfect family. I love to run and play, love to have someone around me, people-wise, to make over me, and show me how wonderful I am. I spend my days lounging, running in the sun, playing, and asking for everyone to show me that I am wonderful. I love to play with boy dogs, they understand me and are fun. Girl dogs worry me a bit, I like to be the boss. No babies for me, I believe in spay and neuter programs, it keeps us dogs out of the milk bone support system. I have too much fun to be saddled with little demanding creatures.

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

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

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

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.

    My name is Shadow and I am now a guest of Patriots. I will be two on Halloween. I am a lab mix and am a pretty big girl. I am looking for a home with plenty of room to run. I was housebroken but lately my old family reports I have forgotten part of what I have learned but if you spend a little time with me it will all come back. I know my basic commands and I love to run with a bicycle or if you want to jog then I am your girl. I am spayed, microchipped and all of my shots are current - what I need is an active home with lots of attention otherwise in typical lab fashion I get in trouble when I am bored.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-06-00505Elsa (female)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

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

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Max checking in here at Patriots for what I hope is a short visit. I am about two years old and am a Jack Russell Terrier mix. I am very friendly, good with adults and housebroken. I don't want to stay in a shelter very long so I will be interviewing people this weekend to see who I want to adopt. Feel free to come on out and see if it is you I pick. No small children allowed for Max. He does get nippy with them - not mean - but he does nip. He is not good with cats and gets obsessed with chasing them. So far he hasn't caught one but the potential for harm is there if he should. He has a 'little dog attitude' that he is in charge. He ... (Read More)would do best in a single dog home. (Less)

    **URGENT** Maggie is 8 years old, and is no longer tolerant of small children. Our household has 2 kids, a 4 year old and a baby. She has started growling at loud noises and is grumpy when the kids are playing on the floor.

She likes a quiet, calm atmosphere. She is very easy to care for and would be ideal for an adult household. PLEASE contact me if you are interested in meeting Maggie. We are located in Davenport, Iowa but willing to drive within a reasonable ... (Read More)distance to rehome to her a happy home. Thank you! (Less)

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

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

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

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

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

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

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

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