    Hope was rescued by one of our adopters and we are very thankful she was found and cared for so lovingly. Hope was starving, dehydrated and freezing when she was found under a deck.

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-23-00173Luke (male)

Fox Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    If you are a terrier lover looking for a smart little buddy, you have to look at Luke. Luke is a Smooth Fox Terrier. He has great markings and some of the best ears I've seen in a while. Luke is 4 years old and is at his perfect weight of 18 lbs. Luke came to us when his previous owner became ill and went to a care center. Luke is used to being an only dog, but he is getting along well with his foster home's other resident dogs. He does prefer to leave some space between him and them though. He does attach to people though. He isn't the type of dog that wants to be in your lap or give you kisses but he will bump your hand to give ... (Read More)him some pets. He likes to play with you, but we are still trying to find a toy that interests him. His favorite type of playing is chase. If you even act like you are going to chase him he gets excited and runs away and comes back to you asking for you to chase him. He likes to go outside, but he isn't much of a fan of the really cold weather right now. But I bet in warmer weather he would love to be outside playing in a fenced yard and taking long walks. Luke doesn't seem to have had any formal training so we are working on basic commands like sit and stay. But he does have very good house manners. He is housebroken and doesn't chew or get into things. He is pretty quiet except when it is dinner time and he just wants his food already. He will let you know when the water bowl is empty by pushing it around the floor. He goes to the door and paws at it when he wants to go out. If you are a first time dog owner or want a little buddy to spend time with Luke would be a good choice. He is probably not going to be your current dog's best new buddy, he would rather buddy up with humans. Luke has been well taken care of his entire life. He came to us up to date on his vaccinations, neutered and heartworm negative. He is also microchipped. He is a happy, healthy dog looking for a new start. If you think Luke could be your new best friend, please start the adoption process by filling out our adoption application that can be found on our website, www.furfunrescue.org. If you would like more information about Luke you can contact lynette@furfunrescue.org. Adopters within an hour travel time from Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200. (Less)

    My name is Zander. I am here at the shelter and looking for a new home. I am just a year old and am a black lab. I am very friendly and seem to enjoy being around people. I get along great with other dogs. I am not housebroken so someone will need to teach me the rules on not going potty in the house. The shelter people are working on it so it won't be a totally new concept to me. I will require a fenced in yard as I am a runner. At a year old I have tons of energy and the person that adopts me will need to train me as if I am a baby. I am ready for someone to love me.

    My name is Layla - I am a little over a year old and I am a Lab/Boxer mix. Life hasn't been very easy for me. You see, I have lots of energy and my family just couldn't, or wouldn't, deal with it. So they stuck me outside in an 8 foot by 6 foot kennel with only a plastic dog house for protection. They fed and watered me when they remembered. One of my family's relatives took me because they felt sorry for me but I was just too much to handle. I got along fine with the other dogs in the home and with the kids but I wasn't there long enough to learn all the good things I should know like sit, stay, walking on a leash, etc, as my new mom had ... (Read More)to have an emergency c-section and I was just too high energy for her to deal with. I don't blame her - she tried very hard to make it work. I really want to be loved and I am willing to love up to anyone who will show me attention. I am a runner so I can't be left in an unfenced area as I will take off. I have done awesome with housebreaking and have not had an accident inside here at the shelter. If you, or someone you know, is that person who can give me lots of love, please tell them about me sitting here at the shelter. Puppy Kisses, Layla (Less)

Bichon Frise    Age: Senior

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

    JP is our little bichon friend. He's having a really hard time in the back kennel so I've move him to the front. We just got back from a walk to the mailbox, doesn't sound like much but he's never been on a leash until yesterday. Its very rewarding watching him change. He needs a home with someone that can give him time... A lot of time. He can not be kenneled so he will need an area (a large kitchen or room with easy to clean floors would be best) as he panics in small spaces. J is good to kids but he can not handle the stress of their energy, grandkids would be better. He gets along with other dogs and really enjoys cats. Monday is JPs ... (Read More)10th Birthday!!! He has been neutered and us current on shots he also had a full dental cleaning. Please share and help JP find a loving home for his birthday!! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-09-00356Bentley (male)

Dachshund    Age: Adult

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

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Bentley is a full of life, loving, charming, sweet boy who has always been extremely active. In his younger years he spent time with me as an office dog, playing with every patient who came in. Later, he enjoyed camping, canoeing, swimming, fetching on water, playing fetch tirelessly. He could grab food from the kitchen counter. (He is a 13 lb dachshund - this is no small feat!) Unfortunately, all this activity caught up with him in January of 2014 when a disc exploded in his back. He was paralyzed in his hind legs and lost the ability to eliminate on his own. Bentley had surgery (discectomy and ... (Read More)hemi-laminectomy) and I brought him home. I expressed his bladder and bowel for him and rehabilitated him for months. He is now mobile with just a slightly altered gait. He can move as fast as ever, and still loves to fetch. His perseverance through this process has moved me greatly. Unfortunately, Bentley has not completely regained bowel and bladder control. He has some control, but not complete. I would guess 70% (this is being measured at ISU as well and exact numbers may be available after the trial.) He has also acquired some behavioral issues relating to elimination in the house. I work full time running my own practice and have a 3 year old daughter. I have tried for a year to give Bentley everything he needs. We love him dearly. But I am gone from 8 am till 6 pm most days, and spend a lot of my time with my 3 yr old when we are home. Bentley doesn't get the attention he needs to succeed, and is severely depressed. He is currently enrolled in the Clinical Trial for Paralyzed dogs at ISU in hopes that his bowel and bladder function will improve or even return to normal. This trial runs through June and is already paid for, so I hope to rehome him to someone willing to take him to ISU for a week 2 or 3 more times. If he is in fact in the placebo group of this trial, he will get the real drug at the end of the clinical trial anyway so that he can have a fighting chance at improvement. It breaks my heart, but Bentley needs someone who can give him more attention and who can be with him more during the day. While at ISU for the trial, Bentley rarely has accidents. While with my parents, Bentley rarely has accidents. I believe if he was happy again, he would be able to succeed. And so, I am in search of that special person who can be that for my sweet boy. Please be that for him. (Less)

    Mr. Nelson (the red pooch) has come such a long way from the day i picked him up. He is such a sweet loving dog now. When i got him he was a fear biter and had been 'kicked out' of two shelters as un-adoptable. To be honest i wasn't sure that it was going to work either BUT i'm so glad we tried because he has turned out to be alot of fun. Nelson LOVES to learn, he knows some basic commands and some fun tricks. he can jump really high for how small he is. (He has not attempted to escape out 6' fence but i'm pretty sure he can get out of a 4'. Nelson needs a family that understands the terrier breed and knows how to 'work' him. Agility would ... (Read More)do wonders for him and he would absolutely love it. **Good with kids** Nelson is good with my kids and volunteers the bigger question is are your kids going to be good to him. If he is treated like a toy chances are the child will get bit. My youngest daughter is 4 and nelson loves her dearly but she also knows how to be respectful to him. **Cats** Nelson is a terrier I can command him to leave a cat alone and he has learned that my cats are off limits BUT if given the opportunity and the right situation their may be a sad ending for the cat. Especially if its a barn cat that runs. Nelson is very clean in his kennel and Very well crate trained, Please expect accidents and time to retrain him to your home and life style. Mr. Nelson would Love a job to do and a family to love him if you feel you are a good fit for this little guy please request an adoption application :) (Less)

Animal ID: 15-021Mr. Jiggs (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior


    Update 2/12/15: We are getting along pretty good. We really like our foster home. Our foster mom is really trying to get us to eat better. She even adds pumpkin in with our food so it is easier to eat since our mouths are pretty sore. We can't wait until we have our dental done. She is really good at giving us our medicine, and our ear drops. We get little ear massages after the drops, we LOVE that. We are house trained, but we need to be helped out the door because our legs don't work quite like they should. We can do it but when it comes to going to go potty the quicker the better getting outside. We are hoping after our neuter and ... (Read More)dental that we will feel much better, so we can eat better, and hopefully our true personalities will shine through. We would really like a forever home with no children, and older dogs our age and size, but we would really like to be the only fur babies. We don't like a lot of excitement. So a quiet relaxed home would be great. Initial Bio 02/02/15: Mr. Jiggs and his companion Archie were recently turned into a shelter in Sioux City. Their owners stated they traveled too much and no longer had time for the boys. Mr. Jiggs and Archie are both malnourished, weighing in at 3 lbs. and they are both too weak to be neutered or have a much needed dental. Foster mom is working hard to get the boys back on track and we will keep you posted on their progress. They are estimated to be 9 years of age and must be adopted together. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Boozie (aka BooBoo, Boo, and Bubby) is a 6 year old Boston Terrier mix with a heart of gold. He is playful, cuddly, walks great on a leash, and enjoys all the time he can get with his people. He loves to be outdoors where he can roam and explore, often times just keeping a watchful eye on his neighborhood. Boozie came to us with a dislocated elbow...but that has not effected his eagerness to run, jump, and even chase rabbits through the yard! This old injury has been examined by our vets and does not require any surgeries or medication at this time. This gentle, loveable boy has been around cats, other dogs, kids, men, and women and loves ... (Read More)them all. He enjoys rides in the car, trips to the pet store, and soft, cushy toys to throw around. Boozie does not require a kennel as he is housetrained and picks up, very quickly, on where his exits are to go outside. He will sleep in a kennel without whining or fuss, but would prefer to be in bed with his people. He is also very treat motivated and will be easy to train, if his forever home so chooses to teach him new tricks. Boo really is a favorite of his foster mom and is a joy to have around. He has a face that will melt your heart, beautiful coat markings, and a temperament that will be a great fit for many homes. He is ready for his forever home as he is heartworm negative, up to date on all his vaccinations, and neutered. Meet this quirky canine and see if he doesn't steal your heart! Boozie is housebroken and weighs 33 pounds. He is microchipped, heartworm checked, up to date on vaccinations and neutered.

His coat, build, and markings are very similar to a Bernese Mountain Dog. Everything fits except the shape and size of his head and ears which look similar to a hound. So, Joey is a mutt.

Frankie loves to give his foster mom and dog sister sweet little kisses. If the cats were agreeable to it he would probably give them kisses, too. When it is time for a snack, Frankie bounces for joy. When it is time to watch the news on TV, Frankie snuggles up close on the couch. When it is time for a nap, Frankie rests peacefully in his kennel. (we won't mention that sometimes he snores.) After a nap, Frankie loves to play with toys or go for a walk. He is a great walking buddy because he walks very nicely on a leash. Frankie is kennel trained, housebroken, microchipped, heartworm tested and up to date on vaccinations.

Its a nice dog, unique and medium to large animal with one blue eye and one brown. It is not agressive to people but has killed 3 of our cats on the farm here. It needs a permanent home and some training/discipline. I am sure I can capture the dog if I have some place to take it. my email countrypoetess02@yahoo.com

    Waylen is in desperate need of a forever home fast. He is currently in the ARL shelter in des Moines Iowa.... He belonged to my children and exhusband and they were no longer able to keep him due to where they live. He is generally a very sweet dog but does not like stressful aggressive situations. He has bitten me but as I said it was a stressful aggressive situation and he protected his master. ARL contacted me this morning as he is not reacting well to the shelter. He is very scared and showing fearful signs toward the shelter staff. He won't let them near him and they are unable to place him for adoption due to his behavior. He needs ... (Read More)someone calm who understands the nature of the bread and has some knowledge in training them. He is great with my kids and got along well with my silky and chihuahua was never around dogs other than them. He does enjoy chasing cats but to my knowledge never hurt one. He is in desperate need of help as ARL is not a no kill facility. They have said they will release him to me no charge. I just need someone willing to give this guy another chance. Please help! He doesn't have long! (Less)

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

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

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

Pointer    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy 

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

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

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

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

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

    We want you to meet Rosie. She is almost 3 years old. There is a bunch of discussion regarding what breed she is. Some say Shepherd mix, some say there is some Rottie in her and others say there is some Gordon setter in her. She is housebroken, spayed, current on her shots and ready for a new home. She is not always great with other dogs so may be best as an only dog. She loves people and is a real sweetie.

Lab Mix    Age: Senior

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

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

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

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

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

Since arriving at the shelter and starting doggie prozac he is a much calmer dog and at 90 pounds, he thinks he is a lap dog. 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.

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

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

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