Rescue Me ID: 17-03-16-00395Molly (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Molly is a year old 42 pound mutt. We say mutt with lots of love. Molly is a sweet little girl and probably has many different breeds mixed in her. Some of our guesses have been Australian Shepherd, Hound, Terrier and Black Mouth Cur. She has some of the characteristics of all of these breeds. Molly loves to run and play and will need a fenced yard so she can get enough exercise. She would love an active family to play fetch with her and take her on walks. Molly knows sit and shake. She is at expert at catching things and loves balls. Molly does not have good leash skills and would really benefit from a basic obedience class. She would ... (Read More)excel at agility. Molly came into rescue from a shelter where she spent 9 weeks. The first night Molly got out of the shelter she was very excited and did hot laps in her fenced yard for two hours. Shelters are no place for babies. Molly is good with other dogs and tries to engage them to play with her. Her foster home has two other dogs and she can wear them both out. She hasn't ever met a cat so we don't know if they are friends, something to be ignored, or squeaky toys. Molly is potty trained, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and micro chipped.%BD'%BD%BD All she needs is a family to call her own. If you would like to meet Molly, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Molly you can contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, Iowa only, please. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200.

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    This is Aries. He is almost 6 years old. He has not had an easy life and his health has suffered for it. We have been treating him for ear infection, urinary tract infection and numerous other things. He is now well on his way to being a healthy boy. We would recommend he be in a fairly calm home - he is not an active dog and it would be idea to find a calm home for him. Now that he is feeling better he likes to walk and he plays in the exercise yards. You couldn't ask for a more loyal companion. He seems to do fine with other dogs and we would recommend older children so they don't try to crawl all over him. He has not been cat ... (Read More)tested. He is housebroken, neutered, current on his shots and microchipped. He just needs someone to show him love that he has missed out on his whole life. If you are interested in adopting a dog from Patriots you should go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application. It takes approximately 48 hours for review of all applications. To avoid delays in processing please make sure you fill out all information requested on the application. (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)

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-09-00397Buddy (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello, friends! My name is Buddy! I'm a sweet two-ish year old boy and they think I'm a German Shepherd / Labrador mix! I say I'm purebred handsome! I used to live on the street, but then I got picked up for loitering (I guess dogs can't just hang out wherever they want.) and was taken to the shelter. Someone went to bat for me and made some phone calls to GSDRI and eventually I made my way to a foster home! Jackpot! I'm a bit skittish of new people and my new family will need to be really patient with me as I get to know my environment and people. I love my foster mom to bits though! I would prefer no children under 12 years old because I ... (Read More)really need humans who are able to respect my space and my need to 'take it slow,' as the humans say. But I did just attend a public event and while things were a bit scary sometimes, I did really great! I love other dogs and did great at the dog park, so I would do great with another playful dog in my home. In fact, it might help me come out of my shell more and learn how to be a family dog. Bossy dogs who don't respect my space probably wouldn't be good though because I get scared of those sorts of things. I do love my foster doggy brother right now! He's a German Shepherd, but I've also been around a smaller dog and did just fine. (At least, I think it was a dog. It smelled like a dog, just smaller. BOL!) I really love human food. Like'|.so much love for it. (I'm sure some of you can relate.) If you leave it where I can get it, you best not turn your back or be too far away because I was snatch it and eat it! It's a pretty easy fix though, if I can't get to it, I won't eat it. Housetraining has proven to be a bit difficult for me. I will need a regular food and pottying routine to help me get on track to understanding what you want from me. I have no doubt that once we are speaking the same language, I will be able to do exactly as you'd like! I'm a smart boy! I'll need a fence for sure. My middle name is Explorer. Hehe My current foster home has a 4' fence and sometimes I jump it. (They're working on making it more secure. Drat.) So far I haven't run away, but I might explore if I get the chance. I don't always jump it and it isn't high on my list of priorities, but sometimes get bored with the smells in my yard (I mean, I smell them so many times a day, right?!) and go to see if there are other smells. There are. I do love my walks! I am a good goodly walker and will walk right by your side! Now, sometimes I alert you to things. I may need you to show me what you do and do not want me to alert to because the things I think are important may not be the things you think are important. I do find that happens with humans. If you're interested me in, the contact information can be found below!!! Until then, I'll be hanging out with my foster family! ********** Visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application and learn more about our adoption process.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-09-00421Manny (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 

    Manny is a great boy and good sized. We believe he is a Lab/German Shepherd mix. He is a little over a year old and was pretty unsocial when he first arrived to us. That has changed and he has opened up tremendously and is actively seeking attention. He loves everyone - so no issues with kids. He has done an amazing job housebreaking and has not had an accident inside in almost a month. He is a pretty gentle boy but is still a whole lot of puppy and he LOVES toys. If there is a toy anywhere in sight he wants to play with it.. He is neutered. His shots are all current and he is micro-chipped and heartworm negative. His ... (Read More)adoption fee is $200.00.

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?! 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)
