Rescue Me ID: 16-08-19-00218Katie (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Unfortunately sometimes PFP doesn't get it right on the first time around. That is the case here. Her name is Katie and she is 5 months old. She was adopted into a home with kids ranging from 4 to 10 years old. It is reported that she jumps on the kids, nips at them and the kids were terrified of her. We were told she should never have been adopted into a home with children. At 8 weeks old when she left us we saw no reason she could not be with children. In fact, after doing temperament check on her again yesterday - we still see no reason not to adopt her to a home with children but until she is trained the time with young children ... (Read More)will have to be monitored and her behavior corrected. Does she need training? Absolutely. Is she all puppy? Absolutely. She needs a strong pack leader in her human. She needs to learn that she is not in charge. Fortunately she is still a baby and her behavior for jumping and nipping can certainly be broken. We know mom was a Shepherd mix but as Katie gets older she sure appears to be more Border Collie than Shepherd mix. She does seem to know the command of sit and while having her on a leash she seems to do fairly well. We believe she is pretty much housebroken. This pretty girl needs exercise and training to get rid of the bad behavior that has now become a habit. Alternatively, she needs a job using what appears to be her natural herding instincts. She gets along well with other dogs. She was not tested with cats. (Less)

    This is Ms. Mollie. All of her vetting records show she is a Shepherd mix. She is gonna be 5 in November. She is an absolutely amazing dog. Unfortunately she started not getting along with her much smaller senior four legged sibling the past couple of weeks and it was causing too much anguish in the home. She lived on a farm and was allowed to come in with the weather was bad. They said she was 'perfect' and never roamed around. She is friendly with all people. We were told she would chase a Rabbit and that she wasn't particularly fond of cats. Beautiful girl who is spayed, current on her shots, heartworm negative and ... (Read More)micro-chipped. She just needs a new place to call home. We haven't seen any issues with her with dogs her own age. Her adoption fee is $100.00.

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

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This small 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. We are letting her settle in for a while before we try her with other dogs to see if it was just that one particular dog or if she just needs to be an only 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. She is 2 1/2 years old and right now she is pretty scared being in the shelter. She does not like men or older male children. In her prior home she was primarily an outdoor dog so we can't be ... (Read More)certain that she is housebroken. 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)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-01-00218Rooney (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rooney is a 7 year old German Shepherd. We moved into an apartment thinking it would be short term and we are staying a little longer than anticipated. We feel that he is not getting the adequate activity he needs in the apartment setting and needs a home where he can run a little more. Rooney does have some anxiety around new people but does warm up to them pretty quickly We have an 11month old daughter who he has done well around, does get a little anxious when she starts to move around quickly. He has not been around many other children. Rooney does not do very well with other dogs, except our Husky he has grown up with. We are looking ... (Read More)to home to two dogs together if possible but understand that is a lot to ask. I will be posting information on Marley as well. They have both been kenneled before and we have come to pick them up and they are in doggy day care with other dogs, so we think Rooney is just protective of us and that is why he doesn't do well with other dogs when we are around. He loves to play fetch with the tennis ball and get belly rubs. Rooney is a very loving dog and this decision to find him a new home was not easy, but we think it will be best for him. Thank you (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-31-00239Cooper (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    My name is Cooper - I am a cute kid at about 6 months old. I know first question - what breed am I - good question. I am breed ADORABLE. You pick a breed and that is what I will be. Since no one seems to know who or what my momma was and my dad certainly didn't leave a card tied around my neck my exact breed mix is anyone's guess. Let me tell you what I do know about myself. As I already said, I am adorable. I am super friendly with everyone. I get along great with other four legged animals but my favorite is smaller two legged animals - I think you call them kids. I have been a very good boy here at the shelter because you see PFP ... (Read More)saved my life. I was in another shelter and they had me scheduled for something called PTS - I later learned than means 'put to sleep' - but I tried to tell them I had already had a nap but I guess that is not the kind of nap they had in mind. Lots of people worked hard to get me out of that place and then I got to take a car ride and come here to PFP. The people here really like me because I am so very lovable. I bet you would love me if you come and meet me and give me a chance. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Rocky needs YOU!!! Rocky was saved from a very high-kill shelter with over 700 dogs. He spent over 60 day in that hell-hole and was saved the day he was going to be killed. He is a good boy. He loves to play with other dogs and is a PEOPLE LOVER. Rocky is mellow and yet athletic. He loves to cuddle. He will jump a fence if he sees a cat or anything that resembles a cat--so he does need a non-cat home as well as a home that is experience with 'jumpers' (or leapers). Otherwise, he is a perfect companion and is looking for love. He is FULLY VETTED and is neutered. If you can give him a wonderful home please TEXT me 319-471-0752. ...

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)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet THOR, a strikingly handsome one year old Coonhound/German Shepard mix! He is smart and loving. An ideal home for this big guy would be someone wanting a great walking or jogging partner. Maybe a person who is looking for a bunny chaser in their garden! He has a very strong prey drive and would love a hunting partner. He will need someone who will respect thy neighbor if they have kitties, because he is not a fan, and can jump a 4 ft fence. He is also an awesome watch dog! He would be better with older kids, and would enjoy someone willing to go for long walks! Thor is fixed, heartworm negative, vaccinated, chipped, and only $100 for ...

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 ½ 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 ... (Read More)without cats would be best, hehe! I weigh about 75lbs 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?! 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)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, my name is Chloe. I'm 8 years old and weigh approximately 85lbs. I'm a very smart girl and absolutely love my people! My foster mom says I'm beautiful - can't you tell?! I was surrendered to GSDRI when my owner died :( I loved him very much and was very attached to him. I absolutely love to please and will easily become devoted to my new family. Because of this, I need to be the only pet in the house as I have been the only pet my entire life and tend to get jealous if other dogs are around. I also have a high prey drive so will likely not do well with cats. I'll take off after squirrels so I also need a fenced in yard. I do really ... (Read More)well with children though and love to play (especially with toys)! I know all the basic commands, crate well but have also been able to free roam with my old family. My foster mom is impressed that I don't bark when people come to the door - that's rare she says :) I do have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) which requires an enzyme supplement with my food. Please keep this in mind as I will need consistent care with my new family, My ideal home would have moderate coming and going/activity in the house. A family with mature children would be nice. A home where the love I give is returned.
