Rescue Me ID: 17-10-20-00250Bullet (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    Bullet is a young male German Shepherd born in approximately February of 2017. He originally came in as a stray and no one claimed him. He is underweight and is at about 55 lbs. right now. it appears he may be housebroken but that is the extent of his manners. He gets along with other dogs his size but probably not small dogs or cats - he seems to have hefty prey drive and plays VERY rough. If you have another dog - he must be fed separately. He devours four plus cups of food in under 2 minutes and is looking for what else there is to eat. We will not adopt him into a home with young children. If you have food in your hand he nearly ... (Read More)takes your hand off to get to it. As of today he is neutered, current on all of his shots, we have started worming him. He is heartworm negative. We have also micro-chipped him. He will require an experienced owner who knows how to deal with a puppy (which is what he still is - albeit a big one). He is not for the novice dog owner. He needs an experienced owner with a firm hand (kind but firm). If you think you are the right adopter for Bullet, please fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website, www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-29-00374Carly (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Carly is still very much a puppy and she is probably a German Shepherd mix. Her date of birth is 12/15/16. She is very sweet and a very smart dog. We have her in with another dog her size and they get along great. She was surrendered because she is not a fan of Chicken, Ducks and apparently cats too. She has a prey drive and because no one worked with it as a puppy it is now a situation where she can't live with small animals. She is housebroken, knows her basic commands and absolutely loves to play. She has lived with kids and no issues were reported with that. She is full of energy and needs to learn some more basic manners - like ... (Read More)not jumping on you. She is ready to go home now, spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. She is just missing a family who doesn't have chicken, ducks or cats (or probably any other small creature). Carly's adoption fee is $200.00. If you are interested in this beautiful girl, please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Oakley is a little over a year old and he is a German Shepherd mix. He is one very active boy. Is still very jumpy and needs to learn some more manners. We are working on the jumping. He loves everyone but would not be appropriate for a home with small children in his current condition. He is neutered, current on his shots and is micro-chipped. He gets along great with other dogs - not cat tested. His adoption fee is $225.00. If interested in a pet from PFP please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an application.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-22-00367Sassey (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sassey is about 3 years old and she arrived to us from Texas with 5 babies in tow. She was in a shelter and space had to be made for the Hurricane Harvey dogs and therefore she had to find a place to go or she and her babies would have been euthanized. She came to us. She isn't a very big girl at only 35 lbs. Her travel papers say she is a German Shepherd mix (obviously something much smaller than a Shepherd). It will be a couple of weeks before Sassey is done with her babies and ready for her very own home. If you are interested in Sassey please fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website at ... (Read More)www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-20-00308Debra (female)

German Shepherd    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 

    This is Debra. She is a German Shepherd and she is 3 1/2 years old. Historically she was a therapy dog for a Wounded Warrior. After that she ended up in a situation that no dog should endure. We are trying to stay positive so will say nothing more about her last few months. She has lost most of her basic training unless you are firm with her - she will definitely need a refresher obedience class. She has a VERY HIGH prey drive - ducks, geese, chickens, cats, rabbits, etc., are all OFF LIMITS FOR HER. She is high energy and will therefore require a large fenced in yard of no less than 5 feet high - preferably 6 feet. She is too rough ... (Read More)for small children - so no children under probably about 12. She does do well with dogs her own size or bigger and we would have to do an extensive meet and greet to assure everyone got along. She isn't a very big girl at about 60 lbs. She listens to men better than women. She is strong and we are seeing a stubborn streak in her that a refresher obedience class should help with. She REALLY would do best in a home that is experienced with German Shepherds - this is not a dog for a novice dog owner. We won't even consider an application that has not had experience with hard to handle breeds. She has not had a good few months and will require time, love, patience and a firm hand (not a cruel one - just firm). (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-18-00070Grizzly (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Grizzly is one of the 29 dogs Fur Fun Rescue took in from Arkansas after Hurricane Harvey. He is a 10 month old, 30 pound Terrier mix. Grizzly and his 5 litter mates came into the shelter in November 2016 when they were two weeks old and were nursed by a surrogate mama. Before coming into our foster home he had spent his entire life in a shelter. Grizzly was very fearful when he arrived at his foster home, he had never been out of the fenced run at the shelter. He quickly started to thrive and has learned that people can be a good thing. Grizzly is very loving and affectionate with his foster moms, and doesn't miss his chance to climb in a ... (Read More)lap for cuddling or to take a nap. Grizzly is hesitant and shy meeting new people so having another dog to show him the ropes would be ideal. He doesn't quite know what to make of children, having never seen them until just recently. He sees them thru the fence at his foster home but is too shy to approach when they call to him. Grizzly plays well with all the other dogs at his foster home and loves toys which he'd never seen before. He is a very active puppy and would benefit from another playful dog in his new home. He needs a fenced yard to run and play safely. Grizzly is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested. If you would like to meet Grizzly, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Grizzly you can contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only. Adopters within two hours of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Adoption donation $200.

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-23-00285Romeo (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Romeo (we have named him that) - he is young - probably a little bit of Shepherd in there. His story is enough to make those of us in Animal Rescue dislike humans even more than we did yesterday. Romeo's owner called for a cab to take her to American Inn in Clear Lake. She had the dog with her along with all of his stuff, crate, bag containing toys, bark collar, shock collar, rolled up magazine (probably used to hit him with), a few treats and a bottle of shampoo, etc. Of course everything but any medical records. During the cab ride the passenger told the driver that she was with Roxie's Miniature Horse and Ponies. During the ... (Read More)drive she started hitting the dog - the driver told her to stop hitting him. She said the dog was a 'pain in the __' - he was a puppy and would not let her sleep at night. When she got out of the cab at American Inn she told the driver to take him to the pound or whatever - just get rid of him - and just shut the door and walked away without a second thought to her dog. Fortunately for Romeo, the driver had adopted from us and got in touch with us and brought him to us. I shudder to think what may be happening to the miniature horses and ponies in this person's care - poor animals. We will be working with Romeo to get him over his fear of hands and will get all of his vetting completed next week. FYI - abandoning animals is a CRIME - unfortunately in Iowa getting that enforced is a near impossible task. Romeo is getting lots of love around here right now and he is eating it up. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-16-00213Roscoe (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Roscoe found himself in not so good of a place when his owner surrendered him to a shetler that can't hang onto dogs for very long. He was surrendered because he nipped at the kids when they pulled his tail - well yeah - that is understandable. Teach the kids respect not dump the dog. He has to be introduced to other dogs slowly but once he trusts them he does amazing. He loves his toys and plaing fetch. He does not do well with cats. He would probably be best with kids over the age of 10 so they will be a little more respectful. He is about 18 months old. He is housebroken, neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and ... (Read More)micro-chipped. He does not show well in his kennel - so to visit Roscoe you need to be willing to spend a little time with him to let him learn to trust you. (Less)
