She is a sweet girl who is pretty scared right now. We don't have any information yet on whether or not she is housebroken. She did live with another dog until about a month ago when the owner 'got rid' of the other dog. According to the police officer she does like to ride in a car and when she gets near a vehicle and she thinks it is ride time she perks up. We have given her the necessary shots ... (Read More)and have put in a micro-chip. She will be spayed in a few days and ready to find someone who will really love her and give her the attention she deserves. Very polite young girl. (Less)

    Charlie and his brother Oscar were adopted by us as pets from the local animal shelter. We were told that both parents were coonhounds, but we have no way to prove that. They are both good dogs, but with our busy lifestyles and our house cats we feel that we are doing a disservice to these wonderful dogs and would love for them to go to a home that has as much love for them as we do, but can have the time to give them the attention and activity that they both need.

Durango is a 6 year old dachshund. He weighs about 6.2 pounds. Durango had a difficult time when he first came to Second Chance. Our vet tried to repair his broken jaw but the bone had decayed enough that there was nothing to attach it to. Durango's jaw has healed as best it can but it will never be quite right ...

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Help Please? My name is Seamus, I am a 2 1/2 year old pit(mix?) who is looking for a forever home filled with love. I was rescued from a dog fighting ring in Texas where I was used as a bait dog when I was six months old. I made a long road trip to Iowa where I lived with a nice lady who got too busy to take care of me, and I was taken in by a temporary foster family. 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. I love every person I meet, I get super excited to meet new people, and want to lick them all over. Will you help me find a loving home where I can cuddle with nice people? Recap: Best as only dog in home, but would warm up to another dog. No cats. Best in a home with kids over 6 years old. 2 1/2 years old, Neutered, up to date on shots. Has Kennel, toys, harness for walking, lead, and food. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Moose is a very energetic, 2 year old, male American Bulldog. He knows basic commands and is house broken. We took him in about 3 months ago and he's just too much dog for us. He does well with females and most males but has to challenge for dominance, frequently, with men. He needs a home where he can be active and played with, which I cannot provide him with. He's mostly a goofy young guy with too much energy and not enough space right now. We have 3 other dogs and 2 cats that he does well with, he wants to play all the time but the other dogs are all older so don't generally want to play.

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.

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)

    Mr. Mackie is back with us. He was here a few months ago and came to us nearly starved to death. He got adopted in January. Unfortunately he scratched a young child who was handling his food bowl. Unfortunately the mother of the child said the grandchild could not visit again if the dog remained. Apparently the young child and Mackie had been getting along great - but it is not uncommon that a dog that has been starved considers his food his most precious possession. The person who adopted Mackie says he is a warm loving and caring dog who loves to travel, just being outside laying around or on the couch listening to the television. ... (Read More)He is well housebroken according to the adopter. He reportedly never made a mess in the house when left unattended. He has gained the weight that he desperately needed and his coat has grown back in beautifully. He is a 9 year old dog - going on 4 years old. He still has lots of energy and loves to run around. Is there anyone out there who can give this senior a home for the years he has left? He will give you lots of love in return. (Less)

Maddy is 4 yrs old, 45 lbs, spayed, utd, housebroken, HW neg, loves car rides, walks well on a leash, knows basic commands and is very sweet. Maddy loves to be next to you! She will need an owner who has breed experience and patience. Her former family (dad) abused her and she is fearful of some men. She does great with my husband. Maddy has never met a cat and is scared of small children. An adult only home would be ideal. She had lived with her fur sibling who was female. Gets along better with male than female, outside of her former ... (Read More)home situation. You must be a homeowner to adopt Maddy and she would love a big fenced in yard! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-27-00274Bella (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    Bella is a 2 1/2 year old Blue Nose Pit who loves people (at least everyone here). Unfortunately life has not been easy on this girl as she has been used for breeding and has been pregnant at least 3 times that we know of. There will be no more babies for her - she has been spayed, is now current on all of her shots, is heartworm negative and looking for a responsible home. She is housebroken. She does not get along with female dogs. No cats for her please. We would highly recommend older children only for her. She is a happy girl but with her past we want to make sure she gets in the right home where she can thrive.

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Lucy is a gently giant. She LOVES hugs and people. She still has a tinge of 'happy strut' in her even though she spent over 2 months in a high kill shelter and escaped 'the needle' at the very last minute when our rescue pulled her. If we had not rescued her, we are certain that she had hours to live--The shelter was in a killing spree and she had spent too long at the shelter. She is still very skinny and would do well very well in a loving home. She is dog friendly; she is not dominant but also not submissive. So, proper introduction will be a must due to her hugeness. She truly YEARNS for a person/family that she can BECOME PART ... (Read More)OF--if you sit in the same room where she is, she will go check out the room but come and check that you are there waiting for her. I think she suffered a great heartbreak in the past when someone left her :( Please call or email me if you would like to meet Lucy. (Less)

Poodle    Age: Adult

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

    Bianca is a very timid, shy little 7 pound toy poodle. She is extremely gentle with everyone. We have never seen any aggressive behaviors from her. She tries very hard to trust and it takes her a bit of time to trust anyone that is new to her. She gets excited and very happy when she sees people she knows and loves. She does attach but it does take time, effort and patience. Bianca is just 6 years old. All her teeth have been pulled due to dental issues. This causes her to do a lot of licking with her tongue and causes stains on her fur. You will need to look past this and see the real Bianca. This girl has a heart of gold and ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-21-00320ReBar (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Hi everyone! My name is ReBar and I am 7 years old but have way more energy and personality than any 7 year old dog you've ever met! I weigh 80lbs and am a big ball of cheer! I am a sweet, intelligent boy with lots of love to give. I would love a home with a family that can spend a lot of time with me and spoil me. Little kids probably aren't the best just because I am so big and have a good amount of energy. A lot of activity with room to run and play would be awesome! My foster mom lets me run out on her property because I do really well with boundaries and have good recall - so long as I get lots of loving! Once I get near her, I like a ... (Read More)good game of chase. She'll chase me and then I'll let her catch me and we wrestle! She has a big fenced in yard too. I like to dig up a little spot for me to lay in the cool dirt. Mom says I'm a good helper in the garden too, hehe! I love to play and enjoy my toys but tear them up pretty easily - woops! I don't mind sharing my toys with my foster brother either, but he's not quick enough to catch me! My foster home has cats in it too and OH BOY do I like cats! I'll chase after them but I can't ever seem to catch them. Not sure what I would do if I got to one so I'll need a home without cats. I wouldn't mind a home with another dog but would do just fine as an only dog so long as you shower me with attention! When mom leaves for the day she puts me in my crate and I doing really well in there. She has even started leaving me out in the house and I've done really well so far! She also lets me sleep with her at night which I love! I know all the basic commands and will happily do them for praise and treats. I don't walk the best on a leash though - I pull and I'm super strong!! Car rides are fun for me and I prefer to sit next to my human. I love getting some fresh air on my face ? I takes some time for me to warm up and trust people so patience in the beginning will be key. Once I realize you are a constant in my life and how much you love me it's all good from there! I like giving my humans hugs and kisses. I am not a fan of thunderstorms so hugs and kisses through this is helpful. A note from my foster mom: ReBar is a wonderful GSD! The lucky individual or family who adopts him will be getting a very special addition to their life. He is so full of life and so eager to please and belong. He has been looking for love in all the wrong places. Hopefully his next love and family will be his last! 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)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Dale enjoys being outside. He generally lays under the picnic table for some shade and likes a water bowl nearby. Dale will chase the ball for me but won't return it. He will do it a couple times and then look at me like 'okay. Done now.' The best way to get to know Dale is to take him for a walk. He is shy at first but after a 5-10 minute walk, he is your new best friend! Dale is a 6 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. If you are interested in adopting Dale, please complete our adoption application at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com/adoption.html Thanks!

Lab 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 

    Dillon got adopted a little over a week ago. The day after he was adopted he got loose from the person who adopted him. When we found out 3 days later that they were unable to catch him, we sent someone who Dillon was familiar with (thank you Denise) to Wisconsin to try and help get him. She was successful and he was returned to the adopter. The adopter decided he had more issues than we represented and returned him to us the next day. We waited for a few days to repost him to give him time to settle back in and begin to feel comfortable again. He is now playing and certainly glad to be back to familiar territory. He has been here ... (Read More)with us long enough to consider this 'home'. Dillon originally came to us and required surgery on his femur. When we felt we had felt a home that could deal with his shyness we adopted him. What we didn't figure on was him getting loose and being set back even further. Dillon will require a home with a fenced in yard and assurances that a new family will be patient with him and allow him to warm up at his own pace. He does warm up. He is great with the staff around here and wants to be handled and played with so we know it is possible. We are grateful he was caught and returned to us so we could work some more on his shyness issues and find a home that needs exactly what he needs. (Less)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This beautiful boy is Wilson. He is about 18 months old and is probably a Chow mix. Talk about friendly,lovable and an attention hound and you are talking about Wilson. He walks a little stiff on his rear legs and we are going to be getting x-rays done on them to see if there is an issue or it is just his style. He certainly appears to be in no pain as he plays and runs around with no issues. We may be worrying unnecessarily but better safe than sorry. Wilson is available for play dates this weekend but won't be able to go home until we have his legs checked out. He gets along with other dogs great - we have not yet tested with cats.

    Mr. Briggs is at Patriots looking for his forever home. He is a lab mix (who could use some weight) and is about a year and a half old. He gets along great with everything and everyone. He would be a great dog for an active family who wants a lab but doesn't want to go through the two years of wild and crazy but could handle the 6 more months it will take for him to no longer be a 'puppy'. Mr. Briggs is available for visitors but won't be able to go home until April 23rd.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Brittany is about 6 months old and we have been told she is a Border Collie X Pyrenees mix but she looks more like a Springer Spaniel. She is VERY scared right now here at the shelter but is warming up slowly. Nothing mean about her - she warms up if you take it slow with her. She is great with other dogs, has no reaction to the cats and her tail wags whenever kids are in the area. She will take a lot of time to settle into her new home but when she does she will be an awesome family member. Unfortunately the person who had her turned her out on her own at about 6 weeks of age and she had to fend for herself with no human contact ...

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Murdock is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd, gorgeous with red and tan merle markings. He is quite energetic and very loving. However, Murdock had a bad start in life. His original owner trained him for protection.. He was encouraged to do things that dogs should not do. Since he has been with us, we have worked with him to make him content and to break the habits that he had learned. As you may know, un-learning something is very difficult and takes time. Because of this, Murdock needs a home with no small children, dogs or cats. A fenced yard would be best, though he may do well with an invisible fence. He likes to play with toys and is ... (Read More)trained to fetch, among many other things! He will play with his family and sometimes plays rough, which is why he would not be good with children. He is a VERY quick learner and responds to authoritative tones and words. That being said, he can be so gentle and sweet and will come snuggle! Murdock walks very well on a leash, listens and obeys many commands, and is very protective of his family and friends. He would not go to the farmer's market or the dog park, though going for a walk would be okay though he would likely be muzzled for safety. It is not Murdock's fault that he was taught to be a 'bad dog' when he was younger. Do you have the heart to help him be a good dog?

    Hi there, my name is Zeus (or as my foster dad likes to call me, Zeusy) and I'm a 3 year old German Shepherd mix. I am super awesome and love my humans! I am an 85lb ball of love and playfulness so have a lot of energy to burn. But I love cuddle time with my humans too! I LOVE attention! I am super fun around other dogs but can play a little ruff! I would love to have a confident doggy sibling to play with me! I love balls and toys. Not too sure how I do around cats so mayyyybe not a great idea :) I am great around kids and oh so sweet. I do have some issues being outside of my comfort zone. New places and people don't always scratch me ... (Read More)the right way! My foster dad is working to figure out exactly what I'm thinking. Maybe it's vigilance he says?!?! I have had some basic obedience so know all the good stuff like sit, shake, lay, stay, and have good recall outside. I do really well in my crate but can be left out in the house without supervision too. Even though I have a lot of energy, I'm not a jumper, buuuttt I pull on the leash because I'm so darn excited!! I also do really well in the car. So, did you get all that?! Basically I just want all the love I can get! Will you be my constant companion?!?!

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)

    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.

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.) Dogs are red-green colorblind.
