    Chase is a sweet boy, we were told that he is a Shepard/ mastiff mix?? Diffidently see the Shepard...not so much mastiff??BUT hes an adorable mutt:)He is under-socialized...meaning ALOT of things scare him, he was originally given up because he would growl and run from the family toddler... he was fine with the baby until it started walking.... he is surly skiddish of strangers... and you can tell he hasnt been exposed to much. You may also notice in the photo the hair loss on the back end....We think that was due to a flea infestation....hes all clear now.

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Misty is a beautiful 7 year old 80lb sable German Shepherd. She is a bit timid at first but with patience she will come out of her shell. She likes to be near but is not overly clingy which makes the nuzzles and kisses that much more special. Misty is in very good health. She knows basic commands, is crate trained, potty trained, and takes treats very gently. Misty hasn't been around kids but she's so gentle it shouldn't be a problem. She loves to run and chase balls. She plays like a nut with her two goofball foster brothers. Misty would do best in an active home, but her new family will need to go slow with her at first. Please ...

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This little girl is Piper. She got dumped at a shelter that was overfull and was scheduled to be pregnant. She got dumped because she had the audacity to get pregnant. Can you imagine that it was her fault versus the fault of her human who never got her spayed? Gee - new concept - take responsibility for spaying/neutering your animals and they won't end up pregnant. At under a year old this poor girl doesn't deserve what she has gotten out of life so far. Because the other shelter was going to have to put her down we agreed to take her. Unfortunately she is too far along and the only thing to do was to find her a foster home and let her ... (Read More)have the babies. She is with Addie and no doubt Addie will have a lot to say about this beautiful girl. Addie says she is 'perfect'. Addie will keep us all updated after her charges arrive. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-30-00748Ava (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is AVA or as my foster mom calls me 'Sweet Ava'. I am a petite GSD at roughly 60lbs and am 3 years old. I am as sweet and loving as a girl could be. I am shy when I first meet peoples but after a while I will warm up. I give lots of kisses and look to my person for attention and praise. I am graceful with a little bit of clumsy puppy still in me. I love, love, LOVE to run and play with my foster mom and foster dog brother! I do like other dogs, especially ones that like to play chase and run around like I do. My foster brother is a senior and he just sits around and watches me play, but I love him anyway! He is great company ... (Read More)and has taught me a lot about manners. My first duty when I go outside is to run around the yard and scare everything away'|birds, bunny's, squirrels, butterfly's'| whatever could possibly be out there, I will scare it away! This is one of the ways I show appreciation to my person. After all, bunnies and butterflies have been known to be a danger to peoples you know BOL! I walk well on a leash but I am skittish when there are a lot of people around. I know the basics like sit, come, and no. I am very smart so if you invest time I just know I could learn more! I kennel well and have no issues with sharing my food and water with you or another dog. My foster mom trusts me to have open access to the house when she is gone and I can be outside in a fenced in yard (I love outside) for a while as long as you check on me every now and then. I also can run loose on the property with my foster brother when my foster mom goes with us and lets us run, and I do return to her when she calls me - I think peoples call that 'good recall'. I like kitties and would love to play with them but my foster mom's kitty doesn't seem to like me, I haven't figured that one out yet'| Being unable to talk I can't tell you about my history but here are a few things my foster mom has figured out about me'| I do not like men or boys. My foster mom thinks that a man could have been abusive to me in my past. If a man visits my home I run and hide or if my foster mom keeps me on a leash near her I tremble. If by chance I see a male person when I am outside I am a bit braver, and I will bark at him and let him know I don't like him! If I'm close enough, I might even try to scare him! Knowing my male person aversion, my foster mom thinks it would be best if I am adopted by a female person; young or old, I will love my female person with all my heart! I wish for a female person to adopt me and be my best friend, I will stay by your side and show you how fun life could be with a sweet girl like me. I promise to listen to all your secrets, fears, and share your joys. At night I will snuggle with you (I will sleep on the floor if you insist). I will stay close and protect you from anything that goes bump in the night (told you bunnies could be dangerous). I prefer a quiet home filled with lots of love and praise (treats when I am really good would be nice too). I don't feel comfortable with little kids; however, a teenage female person would be ok, especially if she became my best friend too! I may be a little standoffish at first when you take me home, but if you show me love and kindness, I promise I will do the same! It may just take me several days to feel safe and trust you. Please consider adopting me. I may not be as easy as some other dogs that you could adopt, but with a little extra effort and a lot of TLC we would be great together forever!

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-30-00286Duke (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    Duke arrived at Animal Lifeline in March of this year at only 9 months old. He was truly MISERABLE, with an itchy and extremely contagious, to humans and animals, skin infection. Duke had lived his entire life as a puppy chained up in a yard and it was obvious that he had been suffering from this condition for several months. That is just no way for a puppy to live%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD|or worse, to die! Fortunately for Duke, Animal Lifeline committed to properly and safely isolate and quarantine him during his recover; providing the necessary medication three times a day, weekly baths (at the ... (Read More)neighborhood car wash) and establishing an outside kennel exclusively for him so he could have play time and fresh air. Duke was now with caring people that encouraged him to finally be that playful puppy, the dog he had never had the chance to be. Duke is finally safe and healthy. At the end of April, he still had a slight skin infection, but is looking super handsome and is no longer contagious nor in quarantine. He still has some medications, care and healing to do but most importantly a bunch of play time to catch up on. We are proud to have given Duke a new life and we are proud of the things we do that most animal shelters just can't handle. Please contact the shelter 515 285 7387 to schedule a time to meet Duke if interested! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-10-00042Debra (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    This German Shepherd is named Debra. She was surrendered to a high kill shelter because she didn't get along with the other dog in the home. Her weight is 65 pounds according to the scale but she looks very thin. We think she could use a little bit of fattening up. We have been working on it but she just doesn't seem to gain any weight. She is 2 1/2 years old. Our trainer has been working with her and she is now doing very well with men (which she was terrified of when she got here). She has learned some basic manners along the way. She is still pretty vocal when she isn't getting the attention she thinks she is supposed to get. ... (Read More)She is spayed, current on her shots, heartworm negative, current on her heartworm preventative, current on her flea/tick prevention and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee is $200.00. If you are interested in Debra we recommend you go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-07-07-00020Suzy (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Suzy was saved AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE from death at a high kill, over populated shelter. She is calm and sweet and loves ALL humans. She is about 60lbs and just wants to spend the rest of her years being a member of a family. She rode in the van for 3 days with 6 teenagers and she was in heaven. She sits with me outside and loves to put her head on my lap--gratefully loving me. The day this picture was taken she was just hanging on my front porch enjoying the day. We do not know of any particular health issues with Suzy right now. She seems happy and healthy. She did have a hysterectomy 2 months ago and a few masses removed from her ... (Read More)mammaries. All benign. However, given her age (9-11?) all we can ask is for LOVE for her--no matter how many years she has left. Rescue is willing to discuss keeping up with vet bills for the remainder of her life if wonderful home can be found that will provide all the love and kindness Suzy deserves. Look at those eyes!! She loves walks and car rides too :) (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-28-00125Max (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max! I am a 2.5 year old German Shepherd and probably some sort of Hound mix. I'm an active boy with lots of energy to burn so I need a family that will give me a lot of exercise. I'm cool with car rides so maybe you can take me to the park for a run! I like to play really RUFF with my doggy friends so I would do best in a home with other young, high energy dogs that don't mind my style of play. (I'd be ok as an only dog too.) I get along well with the other dominant-neutral dogs that are my size in my foster home, however, I don't do well with small breeds. Annnddd I'm pretty reactive to cats so a home without cats ... (Read More)would be best, hehe! I weigh about 95lbs now but could stand to gain some additional weight so I might knock little kids over. I like balls, and if you tire me out enough, I will relax and cuddle up next to you. I LOVE snuggling and getting attention from my people. I know the basic commands but would like a family who could continue my training. I walk well on a leash with a little pull. I do pretty good in my crate but will make a fuss sometimes. I have some nervous energy which can be displayed when I'm in my crate. Because of this, I probably need to be crated during the day so that I don't get into anything while you are gone. Having other dogs around seems to help me stay a bit calmer though! Because I am such a tall guy and an excellent jumper, I will need a home with a secure 5-6 foot fence. I have been known to sneak under a chain link fence before so a wood fence or very secure chain link fence is super important! I tend to bark at noises outside like thunder, fireworks, etc. so hopefully your neighbors won't mind - woops! :) Do I sound like the beset fit ever for you?!
