Rescue Me ID: 15-06-23-00374Moose (female)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    It saddens me to say that my family is no longer able to care for my best friend who has been with me since she was a few months old, Moose. She is the most special friend of all time, but unfortunately, she is not suited for a home with little people running around. Because of this, I'm in desperate need of a loving home for Moose. Moose is a chow mix from a no kill shelter of northwest Denver, Colorado. While she has slowed down a bit in her 11th year of life, she still loves going on walks and smelling the many wonders that her four legged friends have left for her. She loves being outside with people. Other dogs and commotion seem ... (Read More)to stress her out quite a bit. When many people are around, she tends to find a place of seclusion where she can just sleep. She still has a bit of spunk in her step, but she's getting old, and one sign of this is that her hearing seems to be fading a bit. She's very special, and she would be a great fit for someone without kids and a dog, and someone who is home somewhat often, but doesn't entertain a whole lot. She's very lethargic when inside, but she'll almost always want to be in the room where people are. Please help Moose find a loving home. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Foster dog Rowdy is an 18 -19 month old Terrier mix. He is a handsome, happy, playful, spunky, SMART, and very athletic dog who loves walks, jumping like a basketball player, PLAY TIME, snuggle time, and curling up under the covers for bed time. He is house trained and kennel trained. He knows many commands and adheres to most with the exception of if there is another critter or something that has caught his attention - then the terrier comes out. He is good with respectful school aged kids, dogs, and is learning about cats and other critters. Rowdy is working on leash training, indoor voice, barking and squirt bottle training. Rowdy is ...

Dog training classes are recommended for Rowdy and his forever family. (Less)

    Ellie is 3 1/2 years old. She has been a great dog to our kids. Ellie even gets along with our cat. She is kennel trained for when we leave the house. She has a very ticklish belly and her legs goes crazy when you touch it. Beware of her tail when she is excited, it is like a whip. She has allergies that turn her skin pink and takes Claritin tablets to help control it. She is very fearful of new situations. Ellie gets along with our Rottweiler most of the time except our Rottweiler has started some fight with Ellie after Ellie has picked up a toy that the Rottweiler had been playing with. Ellie has also ran through our electric fence to ... (Read More)attack dogs walking down the road on a leash with their owner.

Miniature Pinscher    Age: Adult

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

    We adopted Charlotte a few months ago from a co worker who was relocating and could not take her with him. We have 3 other dogs. Charlotte has been increasingly aggressive with the dogs; today she attacked my dachshund; this was unprovoked. Charlotte has been great other than her issues with the resident dogs. She will snuggle and give hugs, she loves her walks and does great on a leash. She sleeps in the bed with us at night. She is very spoiled and loved and it is heartbreaking to give her up! We have consulted with our vet who advised she may do better in a home as an only dog, which is too bad because in most ways she has become ... (Read More)buddies with the other 3 in our home and she will miss them. Charlotte had a vet visit in May, she is up to date on her shots and is on heartworm preventive medication. We can provide her vet records. We hope someone who sees this is able to give her a nice home. Ideally she needs to be the only dog, be walked every day and have access to rawhides all the time. We have her on Science Diet Light Small Bites, not because she is on a diet but because it is what my other dogs are on and she tolerates it well. If anyone out there is looking for a fantastic companion dog, come and meet Charlotte Ruby! (Less)

Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Hello, this is George. He is a wonderful young man but does not get along well with other animals and some people. If he is introduced to you, he will love you forever. He needs to be in a home with no kids, and no animals. He prefers to be the only pet. I am looking for someone with Bulldog experience. They are a unique breed and require special handling. He needs someone to work with him to be social. I wont allow him to to go to a home where someone chains him up outside, he is an inside dog and likes him kennel in a corner. This is so heart-wrenching for me because i never trained him to be this way. He is a bully-breed and its their ... (Read More)nature, i do know this. As a puppy, he was raised with 3 chiuahuas, his sisters. As he grew older, he never hurt them but he would injure them by running over them and playing. They soon left to live with my ex, and i kept George. My fiancee has a golden retriever and they both fight. We have to keep them apart to avoid fights (2 of which i got in the middle of and got bit, unintentionally). George has become somewhat of a liability to us and our lifestyle. We cant have him outside unattended, for fear he goes after people walking their dogs. George has never bit anyone but if he is threatened, he may. George is an awesome Old English but he needs someone that is preferably alone, no kids, no other animals. Please know that he is a sweetheart and very dedicated and full of so much personality. He is kennel trained, and never has accidents in the house. He has been very healthy and is just a joy to have, as long as no other animals are involved. This just kills me to have to find him a forever home but i have to, its the best for him. Please contact me if you can provide a forever home for George. He is a purebred and i have all his papers and info. He was breed locally. (Less)

Pointer    Age: Puppy


    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. Hi Everyone, I'm Brooklyn. I was a stray down in Alabama, spent a few months in a shelter, and am now getting my second chance with GPPR. I'm a pointer/lab mix and, as you can see, I'm up to my ears in all kinds of cute. And that's probably a good thing because I'm about a year old, possibly a little bit less, and I still haven't figured out the difference between my chew toys and your favorite pair of shoes. I don't know my name yet, I don't have any obedience training, I snore like a ... (Read More)lumberjack, and I'm still iffy on my potty training. But that's ok because I'm on the fast track to learning lots of new things now that I'm with GPPR. And I'm stinkin' cute. I ride in the car nicely and I also like sleeping in my crate. I point at neighborhood birds and I wouldn't mind eating some of the neighbor cats. I would do best in a home where I can be crated when my people are away because I am a (really cute) destroyer of all things. I do well with other dogs and am even learning the art of shared playtime. I'm also very good with children. I haven't had any accidents in the house but I'm still making extra trips outside until my potty training is firmed up. I'm a friendly, loving, and trusting girl. Watch for more updates as I start to show my true colors and as I learn new things. I still need to get one of those spade things at the vet so I'm not cleared for adoption yet but I will be available soon!! Brooklyn is being fostered in the Minneapolis area. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-07-00700Buster (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Buster is a loving, loyal, protective, amusing and wonderful member of our family. Unfortunately we haven't got the extra time and money needed to properly train him, and it breaks our hearts that we can't do this ourselves. Buster learns quickly and with consistent work and effort he can become a more a collected dog. Buster needs someone experienced with pit bulls, that has time, patience, and tons of love!

Bichon Frise    Age: Senior

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

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] I'm wondering if you can direct me to possible temporary homes for my ten year old Bichon and my Shih-Tzu who is about the same age? I am due for hip replacement surgery in mid-June and cannot afford the $1200 vet boarding fees for the dogs. There are so many groups out there that will adopt dogs, but I cannot find any that will take them on a temporary basis - - which is sad because I am sure there are many elderly citizens who are in the same predicament as I am and haven't enough money to pay for boarding their dogs when they have a medical emergency. I'd appreciate any information you can give me. ... (Read More)Georgiana Gjertson, Roseville, MN 65541-290-9488 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-29-00663Remy (male)

Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Remy is a loving 1 1/2 year old White Anatolian Shepherd Male with a possible Great Pyrenees mix. Remy is 120lbs and expected to get bigger! (150lbs possibly) He is average energy and rarely gets hyper. He needs a fenced backyard to play in and enjoys walks. He is most comfortable with small dogs and loves running around playing with them. He is still a puppy and sometimes I don't think he knows how big he is. He loves to snuggle and lay on couch or bed, but won't if you don't want him to. He is not a licker and rarely gives kisses unless there is food on your face or wax in your ears. He gets lonely and may howl when your away. He is potty ... (Read More)trained and never has accidents. He knows how to sit, stay, shake, and go lay on his bed. He is stubborn though, so sometimes you'll have to tell him twice. He is a naturally timid dog, he is more afraid of you then you are of him. He is suspicious of strangers and some large dogs. Do not expect him to be friendly with strangers at first. He can be playful at times, but is not the type of dog to want to play fetch or constantly play with toys. He likes to sit and watch over things and make sure his family is safe. Remy can be good with kids, but needs constant supervision. He is very large and unaware of his size. He can be clumsy and not careful with kids. Small children are not recommended. It breaks our heart to have to find a new home for our sweet boy. We have had issues with a neighbor dog getting into our yard and getting into fights/biting Remy. Right now he has stitches in his leg from a gash after being attacked by this dog, who is much smaller than Remy. He is afraid of this dog and runs inside every time the dog is let outside. After the 3rd incident our neighbors finally fixed their fence, but the damage is done. Remy is now more anxious inside and outside of the house and has become more fearful of strangers. He has nipped at a few people coming into the house, so he now has to wear a muzzle whenever we have people over. We love Remy and we want nothing more than for him to find a new home where he can be happy and comfortable. Do your research on Anatolians! He is a loving big baby that needs someone to provide him with a great home and great guidance. It is important that his new owner can be his Alpha - he won't listen to you if he doesn't believe you are the one in charge. Because of Remy's hesitancy/trust issues with strangers, it may be difficult to transition him to a new home. We are willing to work with the new owner and schedule meet & greets to help get Remy comfortable. Just know that he may not like you at first and it may take time for him to adjust, but once he is comfortable and opens up his heart to you he is the most loving dog you could ask for! Please don't hesitate to email/text/call with any questions. Email is the easiest way of contact during the day, text/call at night. Thank you! (Less)

Animal ID: 15-038Chloe (female)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 03/20/15: My name is Chloe, I'm 4.5 years old and 3lb. born Nov. 24th 2010. My foster momma sometimes calls me Peanut or Angel, which she says is because I'm such a little thing and sweet as can be. I'm really glad I was rescued by United Yorkie Rescue, see I was left at a shelter by my family when they couldn't care for me anymore. I don't know what happened way back in Oct. 2014, I don't remember anymore, but one day I just couldn't walk, my back legs didn't work and I couldn't feel my toes. I couldn't hold my bladder or my bowels either all of a sudden, and the Dr's didn't know why. They gave me some medicine but it didn't ... (Read More)help. I'm a pretty spunky girl and wasn't going to be kept down, so I kept trying and slowing I was able to start walking a little bit again, but it seems there are other things wrong with me which was making it hard, I have luxating patellas in both my back legs. My left knee is really bad so I usually tuck it up under me and kind of hop around, but after awhile my other leg gets tired and I need to rest. Both of my legs have atrophied because of this. Sometimes I can get my knees to lock, which allows me to walk and run almost normal! I'm pretty fast when I want to be! But, they say I need surgery to fix my legs, so I can walk and run and not have pain as I age. At some point I may not be able to walk anymore and I love running in the yard, following my foster momma around the house and playing. She says I'm like her little shadow. I get along well with my foster brother and sisters, I like to stay with them and sometimes play too. I like to play with your hand by gently mouthing, and then smiling to show you how happy I am. I don't know if I like big dogs because they would be SO much bigger than me and I haven't been around them, and I'm not sure about kids because they could hurt me since I'm so small. I haven't been around cats, but I'm such a happy go lucky girl they'd probably be ok with me. Please don't think I'm picky, I just need to be in a safe environment where I won't get hurt because of my size, or because I like to run outside. I try hard to go potty outside like I know I should, I go when we all go outside for potty breaks, but I just can't hold it because of whatever happened to my spine, so foster momma puts these little things on me she calls my doggy panties, and I wear them all the time since I can't control my bladder anymore. She changes my little pad inside every few hours, I stand still so good for her while she puts it on me. Sometimes I have poo accidents though when she isn't watching, because I can't control things and they just come out. She hasn't gotten mad or frustrated at all with me, which I'm so glad of because sometimes it happens when I'm on the couch or sitting on her rug, and then she has to clean up after me. I want to make it stop, I start spinning in circles and look at her worried afraid she may yell at me, but she never does, she calms me down and cleans me up. I'm a good eater, I love my breakfast and dinner and if you wanna give me treats I would love that too! My foster momma when she first got me gave me a grain free high quality food that was really tiny for my size and helped me transition, then she slowly started giving me whole food with my kibble, which I love! Momma says it's cooked ground turkey and hamburger with cooked sweet potato, squash, and green beans. Sometimes she adds fruits like strawberries or blueberries, and she even adds a little yogurt smoothie to it so it helps keep my system working good since I have my bowel issues. It seems to really help! I really want to find my forever home and be loved again by my own patient and understanding family who won't get mad at me for making messes sometimes, or needing baths more often than what they call a 'normal', whatever that is. I love snuggling, and giving kisses, and sleeping in the same room with you in my kennel. Hopefully someone who's maybe home all day, with time for my extra care, will come along soon and make me their forever angel. I promise to give a lifetime of kisses and love and joy to you in return! Are you my forever family? (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-18-00365Ando (male)

Weimaraner    Age: Senior

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

    Ando is a 12.5 year old happy & healthy Weimaraner that's been by my side since he was 8 weeks old. He loves long walks, playing fetch, swimming and snuggles. He will quickly be your best friend if you're a dog lover, but is very nervous and can get sassy around adults and children that are not comfortable around dogs. He's very protective of our home & there are many children in our neighborhood that are in & out of our house on a daily basis. This makes him uncomfortable & I would like to see him less anxious & in a home with no children. I would also like to keep in contact with him if possible. He's an indoor dog and loves laying at my ... (Read More)feet as I work. We walk often, but because he's older, he's content with some indoor play on really cold days. Though making this change to our family is so very difficult, I know that having him in a place where he's more comfortable is the best thing for him. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Looking for a glimpse of sun and sand? Introducing Miss Barnacle! She traveled all the way from Turks and Caicos with IPAW staff to Minnesota to find her forever home! Barnacle or "Barney" is a 2 year old potcake, aka an island mutt. We found Barnacle on the beach in front of our hotel. We asked around and nobody seemed to own her. TCSPCA was hosting a spay and neuter clinic that week so we took her in and found she had been previously spayed but she did test positive for heart worm. The crew with IPAW and TCSPCA fell in love with her and decided she needed to come back to the States with us and find a good home. She is receiving ... (Read More)treatment for her heart worm along with mange. Surprisingly, this island girl does not mind the cold. She enjoys exploring in the backyard and going for walks. She is house-trained and kennel trained! Her housemates have taught her how to play with toys - she really loves tug of war and anything squeaky. She does well with other dogs, but she cannot be housed with other dominant female dogs. She adores cats and loves all people. You can see how she wiggled into her foster mom's heart! She will be available for adoption after finishing her treatments! If you are interested in this animal, please go to our website at AOHrescue.org and complete the dog adoption application. (Less)

    Hi! I'm Millie. I'm a sweet 2 year old mix. There may be some gsp in me by my looks but no one can really say for sure. Either way I am a loveable ball of energy.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Minnesota
    Dogs can make good pets in Minnesota 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!
