Rescue Me ID: 15-09-28-00819Maggie (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Some of you may remember me - my name was Maggie when I was here at Patriots in April when I was just a baby. Myself and my sister Mae were both adopted. I was returned to Patriots a few days ago. I am going to tell you what my old parents had to say about me so you know all of the bad things I have done: Refuses to be housebroken (Shelter note: Has not had accident in kennel since arriving back a couple of days ago); Barks when in crate (Shelter note: Does bark but not excessively when in her kennel but we have not crated her since she has been back) Food Aggressive (Shelter note: Since she has been back the staff have been putting ... (Read More)their hands in her bowl and taking her food away while she is eating and she has made no attempt to stop us from doing so. We have not tried feeding her with another dog yet) Toy Aggressive (Shelter note: Has no problems with us taking toys away from her - have not tried her yet with another dog and toys) Mouthy (Shelter note: She is an 8 month old puppy - of course they are mouthy - they are still getting teeth in - we have not seen any sign of this since she has been back here the last couple of days - she does love to chew on a bone) Still chews on things like baseboards and plugs (Shelter note: She is a puppy - they chew things) Grows at other dog when crated (Shelter note: We have not crated her since she has been back with us but have not once observed her growling at another dog - even the ones in the kennels beside of her) Digs in yard and tries to dig under fence (Shelter note: We don't leave her outside in the yard without either being with her or checking on her but she has not dug under our fences yet) SHELTER FURTHER NOTES: She is an 8 month old German Shepherd Mix PUPPY. She requires a home who will start from scratch on her training. She is super sweet and lovable but is pretty scared right now. If you approach her quickly she does lay down and wet herself but that is getting better the more we handle her. She is spayed and we have brought her shots current. She is micro-chipped and needs a home that can deal with a puppy and all of the stuff that goes with puppy hood. Super sweet and will just curl up on your lap. A puppy is NOT for everyone - it requires a long term commitment to work with any problems as they arise. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-09-16-00610Brandy (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Brandy is a 5 year old, 43 pound Golden Retriever mix. She has a pretty gold coat and big brown eyes to melt your heart. Brandy is a very gentle dog who walks well on a leash. She loves people who care for her and follows them around to be near them. Brandy sleeps in a dog bed beside her human's bed and waits patiently for her humans to wake up in the morning. Brandy was found as a stray the little tiny town of Stover, Missouri. She waited two very cold winter months, mostly outside for rescue. When Brandy got to Iowa she was thin and scared. There was very little joy in her life and it took us several months to figure out why. Brandy has ... (Read More)IBD - Irritable Bowel Disease. That means that her gastrointestinal system can't break down proteins and some grains. Her body couldn't use regular dog food and eating it made her tummy constantly hurt. Because Brandy has IBD she eats a Science Diet Z/D prescription food. She takes Vitamin B9 (folic acid) which helps her small intestines absorb food and an anti-inflammatory every morning because she has a stiff rear leg. Brandy is now a healthy, happy girl ready to find her forever family. Brandy is housebroken and happily lives in a foster home with three other dogs and a couple cats. Although she does well with the other dogs in her home she does show some jealousy if they get attention instead of her and lets you know she wants attention with a bark. Cats don't seem to matter at all to her. She may enjoy a home where she was the only dog so she has all the attention to herself. Brandy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped. If you would like to meet Brandy please start the process by filling out the adoption application on our website: If you have questions about Brandy please contact or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, Iowa only please. Adoption donation $200. (Less)
