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 is currently roommates with Rosie and they do amazing together. He takes a little while (like two minutes) to warm up but when he does he is a sweetheart. He loves his toys and plaing fetch. He does not do well with cats. He would probably be best with kids over ... (Read More)the age of 10 so they will be a little more respectful. He is about 18 months old. He certain appears to be fully housebroken as he has not had one accident since he has been here. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

    Ms. Daphne is almost 6 months old. She is a beautiful girl who is very loving and affectionate. She is good with other dogs. We have no information on her around cats. She is good with humans of all sizes. We don't know yet if she is housebroken 100% but we should know more in a day or so. From looking at her we think she might have a small amount of Shepherd in her.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Ms. Sheba is a year old and is a major lover. Now that she has discovered getting attention, being loved and someone to play with she has come a long way. We have managed to get her housebroken and she has had no accidents in her kennel at all so transition to home should be fairly simple. She is a gentle girl but does still like to jump up and give kisses. She loves her toys and you will almost always find her with one in her mouth. She is a German Shepherd mix (with what we don't know) but we can tell you that she is a very gentle and loving girl. She gets along great with other dogs and is excellent with children. She has not been ... (Read More)cat tested but with her personality we would guess she would be very leary of them. She is spayed, current on her shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. The only thing missing is her very own family 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.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Ghost is scheduled for his heartworm treatment next week. It will be a hard treatment but he is in good shape physically and we don't anticipate any problems - it will just take time for him to recover. The longer he is here the more we honestly believe he has some Siberian in him - he talks all the time. We are revising his breed to Shepherd/Husky mix. He is under two with a birthday of 7/15/15. He is excellent with other dogs. He does have a little bit of a stubborn streak wherein if he wants to play rather than go into his kennel it means making him go in. He loves toys. He is housebroken and neutered. Once he receives treatment ... (Read More)it will be about a month before he will be ready to go home. (Less)

    Age: 2 years Location: Anamosa, IA Adoption Fee: $300 Description: This boy is super sweet and found himself in rescue after the place he was at was unable to address his medical situation.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-09-00402Max (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max, aka Mystery Max! My foster family wasn't sure what breeds I'm made up of (I prefer to just be a lap dog, but apparently that isn't an official breed). They put a swab in my mouth and mailed it to someone who looked at my slobber. They said I'm a designer dog! 50% GSD and 50% Treeing Walker Coonhound. Here is my report: http://rv.wisdompanel.com/dnareport/fX6Fn8j4taCLy2uZ3KBxJeGrL5oZ1jDARNaZJ-7_Yg4W_U2BKJb_A0xyOAWQvKcW#/ancestry/DDwY7OKPg48OEGEaCSYqy I do love sitting on my foster dad's lap (even though I weigh 95 pounds), but outside I'm an active boy with lots of energy to burn. I'm cool with car rides so ... (Read More)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 - more lap space for me!) 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 love to bark at and chase cats, hehe! After play time, 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 probably need to be crated during the day so that I don't get into anything while you are gone. I do pretty good in my crate but will make a fuss sometimes. 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 so I don't accidentally get lost. 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! My adoption fee is $200. 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.

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: 16-11-25-00080Frida (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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 may 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 - kids over 8 or 10 should be fine. 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 ... (Read More)bit of work. Frida's adoption fee is $100.00. She is spayed, current on her shots, is heartworm negative and has been micro-chipped. If you are interested in this pretty girl please fill out an adoption application on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com (Less)

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.

    Chase is a sweet boy, we were told that he is a Shepard/ mastiff mix?? Diffidently see the Shepard...not so much mastiff??BUT hes an adorable mutt:)He is under-socialized...meaning ALOT of things scare him, he was originally given up because he would growl and run from the family toddler... he was fine with the baby until it started walking.... he is surly skiddish of strangers... and you can tell he hasnt been exposed to much. You may also notice in the photo the hair loss on the back end....We think that was due to a flea infestation....hes all clear now.

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: 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)
