Rescue Me ID: 16-11-25-00080Frida (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Ms. Frida is looking for a new home. Her prior owner did a DNA on her and she is German Shepherd and Red Heeler. She is a jealous dog of other animals in the home so would need to be the only dog in the home. It is also reported that she is dominant with small children (never harmed a child but the best guess is she is using her herding instincts and trying to keep them where she wants them). So no small children in the home with this pretty girl. She is just over two years old, she is housebroken, current on her shots, spayed and she can really 'fly'. She would be an excellent Frisbee dog with a little bit of work. As you can see she is ... (Read More)pretty sad being here in the shelter - her wish is a home for the holidays. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-15-00516Ohren (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi everyone! My name is Ohren! That's German for 'ears' because I have such big ears, haha! I'm a three year old neutered male and am up to date on vaccines and microchipped. My previously family gave me up, but my foster family has no idea why! They say I'm the sweetest boy they've ever met! And I'm a goofball! I still have a lot of energy for only being three years old, but am the biggest cuddle bug too! I guess I don't know how big I am (about 75lbs) because I like to sit right on top of you and give kisses. I'll even snuggle up in bed! I'd really like that wherever I go. My favoritist game is to play fetch. I love my balls but they ... (Read More)always seem to fall apart so quick so make sure you have a lot of backups! When I'm restless or excited, I get kinda mouthy and will use my teeth to tug on your hands and stuff - I'm not trying to hurt you, but sometimes I don't realize how big those pearly whites are! Mom has been working with me on this and I calm down pretty quickly. I get along really well with my doggy foster brother. He's an alpha so he'll correct my inappropriate play when he needs to. We play tag and ruff house around the yard. I seem to get along with most dogs, but mom had this crazy puppy over for a visit and I wasn't super fond of him to begin. He was crrrraaazzzyyy and tried jumping all over me! Idk what his deal was, BOL! The only issue I have is when other dogs comes near my food! I don't like anyone to bother me when I'm eating and have let everyone know! So I really need an owner who can deal with my food guarding and ensure I have a safe place to eat. I don't seem to care about the water dish and will even share, but my food dish has to be put away. Because of this, I will need a home without children! Everyone in my home will need to understand that they have to be very careful around me during feeding times. Oh, oh! And speaking of food - I was a bit skinny when I came into the rescue so have been gaining weight but have some pounds to go. Right now mom is feeding me 3 cups twice a day! I love treats and take them gently out of your hand. I'll even sit pretty for you to get them. Even though I'm super friendly, I do like to be the protector of the home. I'll bark when someone comes to the house but quickly quite when I get some attention from the visitors. My previous owners said I was good with cats but my foster family hasn't tested that with me so we're just not too sure! Overall, I'm a healthy guy, but do have really itchy ears. My mom has me on a grain and chicken free diet to help with any food allergies. She gives me Benadryl on the days I seem to be extra scratchy. The vet has checked me out and I don't have any ear infections, so maybe it's seasonal! I know all the basic commands and correct very easily (except if I'm mad about someone being near my food). I know sit, stay, lay down, come, shake, no/down, bed time, kennel, outside/inside, and hungry. I'm crate trained, but can also be left to roam the house. I also walk really nicely on the leash. I'm super smart and definitely a people pleaser. My ideal home would be an active family with only a couple people as larger groups seem to overstimulate me. Visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application and learn more about our adoption process. Our dogs are all fostered in volunteer homes. Meets and greets are only available by appointment after the application has been processed. All of our dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. Adoption fees: $350 - 0 to 6 months $325 - 7 to 12 months $300 - 1 to 5 years $250 - 6 years and older $200 - mixed breeds *BREED DISCLOSURE: Due to the fact that most of our adoptable dogs come from shelters, we can not guarantee their breed. We list the dog's breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, temperament, and personality of the dog - in some cases it's purely a guess. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Winnie is a pretty girl and pretty good sized. It was reported to us that she is a German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix. She is a little over a year old and unfortunately has had very little human interaction so she will require some patience and love to learn that humans are a good thing. She isn't too bad about coming - just stil terrified of a leash. She has always been an outdoor dog so therefore is not housebroken. She is a pretty gentle girl but is still a whole lot of puppy. She is scheduled to be spayed on November 15th and will be ready to go to her forever home after that. Her shots are all current and she is micro-chipped and ... (Read More)heartworm negative. Her adoption fee will be $225.00. If you are interested in her please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    We are trying to find a new home for Tesla, our 2 year old German Shepherd/Husky mix. He's a well behaved, lovable dog. He's house trained, runs well on a leash, and knows the commands come, sit, stay, down, bring it, and leave it. He loves to run, play fetch and tug, and go swimming. However, he's fearful of people he doesn't know and will bark and growl. He usually calms down after a bit and will let them pet him. Once he knows someone he's fine with them. He's good with kids he knows, but has a difficult time calming down around kids he doesn't know as they're usually fearful of his growling. He is good with other dogs and cats. We're ... (Read More)looking for a home that does not have children, does have a yard, and is full of plenty of love. Tesla is neutered and up to date on his shots.

If you are interested in getting to know Tesla please contact Nikki at 319-383-4854. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max! I am a 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd/Treeing Walker Coonhound 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 best fit ever for you?! 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)

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)

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?! 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)
