Rythum is a senior Basset/Beagle mix who is about 10 years old. Unfortunately he needs quite a bit done to him so he will be with us for a while. He is not yet neutered so we have to get that done and add to that he is Heartworm Positive so if the vet feels he is strong enough to undergo the treatment we will have him treated. He is a lover - doesn't much like being in a crate but let him out and he is a real love. We are keeping our fingers crossed that his surgery and his heartworm treatment will go off without any problems. He deserves to have a chance at a happy ending in his life.

Bullet is a young male German Shepherd born in approximately February of 2017. He originally came in as a stray and no one claimed him. He is underweight and is at about 55 lbs. right now. it appears he may be housebroken but that is the extent of his manners. He gets along with other dogs his size but probably not small dogs or cats - he seems to have hefty prey drive and plays VERY rough. If you have another dog - he must be fed separately. He devours four plus cups of food in under 2 minutes and is looking for what else there is to eat. We will not adopt him into a home with young children. If you have food in your hand he nearly takes your hand off to get to it. As of today he is neutered, current on all of his shots, we have started worming him. He is heartworm negative. We have also micro-chipped him. He will require an experienced owner who knows how to deal with a puppy (which is what he still is - albeit a big one). He is not for the novice dog owner. He needs an experienced owner with a firm hand (kind but firm). If you think you are the right adopter for Bullet, please fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website, at www.patriotsforpets.com

Cute, playful, outgoing and friendly - what more can you ask for in a puppy. This is Pippin. She is about two months old and she loves to play and run around. OK - so the big qustion - what breed is she - we are gonna say "Breed Adorable" and then fall back to "we believe she is a Heeler mix" She is spayed, current on her puppy shots, current on all of her preventatives and just needs to find her very own family that will make a commitment to give her a wonderful home for the entirety of her life no matter what breed she is. She gets along great with other dogs, cats, kids and adults. Of course, she is not housebroken yet. Puppies aren't a "until you get tired of them" or "until I am moving and can't take the dog" - puppies are a lifetime commitment. If you can't commit to the next 15 or so years - both the good and bad - please don't adopt a puppy. Pippin's adoption fee is $225.00. She is ready for her forever home.

Mr. Edward was adopted from us right after we first started operating in 2013. He has been a loving companion to his family and had visited us several times over the years. It is with a sad heart that he is now looking for a new home due to a severe illness in the family that did not permit him to stay with the family he has certainly grown to love over the last four years. He is a Jack Russell Terrier who is now almost 7 years old. He is as close to perfect as they come. He is housebroken, walks wonderful on a leash, is good with other dogs, is excellent with people. He does still have lots of energy in typical JR style. He has known nothing but love and an excellent home for the past four years and now he is looking for someone who can show him just as much love as he has gotten used to. Our heart goes out to his former family and we know this was a very difficult decision to make. If you are interested in meeting Edward he is here at the shelter and looking for a new family to give him love.

 . Spree .
  • Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler, Border Collie
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Spree was originally adopted from us in July as an 9 week old puppy. She was one of Tasha's babies. The mom was a border collie mix and as to what dad was - we don't have a clue - except that Spree looks like she may be a Heeler mix. The family that adopted her were not happy with her. Apparently they were having a hard time housebreaking her and she and the dad did not like each other and apparently she was nipping (which we have seen no sign of here). We are happy they followed the contract and brought her back to us so we could find the right home for her. She is now 4 1/2 months old and is an active girl. She gets along great with other dogs and loves to wrestle and play. She has no problem with men around here at the shelter so not sure what that was all about. We have brought her puppy shots current and she is looking for a home who will spend the time to make her a happy member of a family. Because she missed out on some early puppy training she will require someone experienced in dealing with housebreaking and how to work with the nipping (if it is occurring) problem. She LOVES toys and will spend hours playing with her kennel mate and the toys. She is at the shelter and available for visitors. If you think you might be interested in Spree please go to our website and complete an adoption application. We are going to ask that all members of the immediate family meet her before any adoption to make sure there aren't any issues with anyone in the family and that all of the family is on board with a new four legged family member.

Carly is still very much a puppy and she is probably a German Shepherd mix. Her date of birth is 12/15/16. She is very sweet and a very smart dog. We have her in with another dog her size and they get along great. She was surrendered because she is not a fan of Chicken, Ducks and apparently cats too. She has a prey drive and because no one worked with it as a puppy it is now a situation where she can't live with small animals. She is housebroken, knows her basic commands and absolutely loves to play. She has lived with kids and no issues were reported with that. She is full of energy and needs to learn some more basic manners - like not jumping on you. She is ready to go home now, spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. She is just missing a family who doesn't have chicken, ducks or cats (or probably any other small creature). Carly's adoption fee is $200.00.

 . Ares .
  • Siberian Husky
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without small kidsPrefers home without cats
Ares is a 5 year old Siberian Husky who was surrendered to the shelter when his family couldn't deal with his food aggression with their other dog any longer. He absolutely must be fed by himself - not around people or other dogs. He got along fine with the other dogs if food isn't involved. It isn't because he is underfed - in fact he doesn't even eat his full servings of food when he is fed so our guess is no one worked with him as a puppy to prevent the behavior or at some point in his life he was not fed regularly and had to compete for his food. He is housebroken and gets along with all humans. He isn't very good on a leash - he is strong and he uses that to his advantage to go where he wants to go. Because of his obsession with food he absolutely should not be in a home with small children - we are unsure how far beyond his bowl this may extend and we want to make sure no one gets hurt. We will be recommending to whomever adopts him that he learn to eat in a crate and at no other times - not even a treat unless he is crated to do so. We are working with that here at the shelter and that is how he is being fed. He is now tking a treat gently. He is neutered, current on his shots and is heartworm negative. He just needs to find the right home that understands Siberians and their special needs and requirements. They are a beautiful breed but very unique so please do your research. If you have what it takes to adopt Ares please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application.

Onyx got adopted last weekend. Everyone knew how terrified she still is of people and strange things. After a few days the person who adopted her realized it was more than she could deal with. Onyx is apparently afraid of grass also so going potty outside was an issue. She is always on concrete or gravel here at the shelter. A scared dog can take weeks, months or years to come around. She had no human interaction for a minimum of a year before coming to us. She is about 3 years old and we were told she is an English Setter mix. She does do excellent with other dogs.

  • Prefers home without small kidsPrefers home without cats
This is Debra. She is a German Shepherd and she is 3 1/2 years old. Historically she was a therapy dog for a Wounded Warrior. After that she ended up in a situation that no dog should endure. We are trying to stay positive so will say nothing more about her last few months. She has lost most of her basic training unless you are firm with her - she will definitely need a refresher obedience class. She has a VERY HIGH prey drive - ducks, geese, chickens, cats, rabbits, etc., are all OFF LIMITS FOR HER. She is high energy and will therefore require a large fenced in yard of no less than 5 feet high - preferably 6 feet. She is too rough for small children - so no children under probably about 12. She does do well with dogs her own size or bigger and we would have to do an extensive meet and greet to assure everyone got along. She isn't a very big girl at about 60 lbs. She listens to men better than women. She is strong and we are seeing a stubborn streak in her that a refresher obedience class should help with. She REALLY would do best in a home that is experienced with German Shepherds - this is not a dog for a novice dog owner. We won't even consider an application that has not had experience with hard to handle breeds. She has not had a good few months and will require time, love, patience and a firm hand (not a cruel one - just firm).

He is housebroken, current on all shots, heartworm negative, neutered and current on all of his preventatives such as heartguard and Frontline. Bob's adoption fee is $200.00.

Here is the write-up from her foster mom: Sweet Jasmine is our 1 yr old Texas foster. Housebroken, friendly, good with our large dogs, and knows how to use sad eyes to get extra attention. She's heartworm positive and will receive treatment soon. She is not good with cats or small dogs, and actively hunts ours, who are safely in the basement when Jasmine is loose in the house. She's okay with the over 30 lb dogs, but likes to dominate. She's crated at night, and stays quiet. Loves to be brushed. She freaks out when someone plays with a squeaky toy, so I would be hesitant to have her around small, squealing children.

Here is what his foster mom had to say about him: Stan is the biggest of our Texas rescue fosters at about 90 lbs. He's a puller, and very strong, but with a no-pull harness, he walks very well. I think he may have been an outside dog, and don't believe he's housebroken. Does not like other dogs by his food. He gets along well with mild mannered Smokey, but hates busy Bob. At 5 yrs old, he would probably do best as an only dog. He barks alot when he sees us in the yard and wants attention, but does not bark at our neighbors.

He is a pretty petite boy. Tango is a little on the shy stand offish type at first. But once he trusts you he is a real gem of a sweetheart. He does great with other dogs and cats. Tango is pretty timid when it comes to going in and out for potty breaks, but once he makes through that door he is fine. He has had one wet accident in his kennel during overnight. It will not take much to get him fully house broke. Tango is a smart boy and loves to play with others of his own energy level. He is very stand offish when being with the high energy dogs. So a little less is good for him. He loves to give kisses and craves for love. He does pretty good on a leash but will need a little more practice.

This is Stella. She is an awesome dog. Good with other dogs, has been with small dogs, but if they run-she will chase them. No cats. She loves chasing squirrels. She can jump fences-so need a tall fence-very athletic. Good with kids over 8 yrs old, and is great to walk on a leash. Knows sit. She is housebroken and sleeps on a dog bed. She's great in the car. She is on grain free dog food. She is spayed, current on all shots, heartworm negative, current on preventatives and micro-chipped. She is on Proin (which will be sent home with her). After she was spayed, sometimes she would leak while sleeping-which can be common. The vet said it is a hormone imbalance. She has done great with it and right now she is getting it every other day. Could be ok with every third day. It is not an expensive drug. Her adoption fee is $175.00. Our adoption application is on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and we recommend you fill that out if you are interested in a pet here at Patriots.

Sammy is under 2 years old. He came to us in early January absolutely terrified of humans. He would bite when he was terrified. He has come a LONG LONG way since then. He will now come up to his gate and allow people to gently touch him. He goes in and out without having to be on a leash and forced to go outside. He is now curious about humans and has gotten very good with the regular volunteers here at PFP. He is housebroken. He will require a quiet home with someone who is VERY patient and will just wait for him to be curious enough to seek attention. We know that adoption will set him back a little bit but it is time to start looking for his very own home. He isn't a real big boy - about 35 pounds. His breed is anyone's guess.

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 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.

 . Romeo .
  • German Shepherd Dog
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
This is Romeo (we have named him that) - he is young - probably a little bit of Shepherd in there. His story is enough to make those of us in Animal Rescue dislike humans even more than we did yesterday. Romeo's owner called for a cab to take her to American Inn in Clear Lake. She had the dog with her along with all of his stuff, crate, bag containing toys, bark collar, shock collar, rolled up magazine (probably used to hit him with), a few treats and a bottle of shampoo, etc. Of course everything but any medical records. During the cab ride the passenger told the driver that she was with Roxie's Miniature Horse and Ponies. During the drive she started hitting the dog - the driver told her to stop hitting him. She said the dog was a "pain in the __" - he was a puppy and would not let her sleep at night. When she got out of the cab at American Inn she told the driver to take him to the pound or whatever - just get rid of him - and just shut the door and walked away without a second thought to her dog. Fortunately for Romeo, the driver had adopted from us and got in touch with us and brought him to us. I shudder to think what may be happening to the miniature horses and ponies in this person's care - poor animals. We will be working with Romeo to get him over his fear of hands and will get all of his vetting completed next week. FYI - abandoning animals is a CRIME - unfortunately in Iowa getting that enforced is a near impossible task. Romeo is getting lots of love around here right now and he is eating it up.

This is Ragnar - he was originally with us last year and has been returned. We are not even sure where to start in describing him. We have a 8 page report from his adopters describing him. There are tons and tons of good stuff on him and what a wonderful dog he is - but he is described as having a Jekyll and Hyde personality. He will do great and then all of sudden turn on someone that he knows or was just loving up to. Unfortunately in a home with children, family and friends the changing of personalities did not work. Since we have seen none of the unwanted behavior here we aren't even positive what to look for in an adopter. He is only two years old - has been to trainers who have not seen the issue so can't even begin to advise on additional things to try. The behavior exists and rears it's ugly head when least expected. About 80% of the time he appears good with other dogs and then all of a sudden that goes bad. He was originally shown as a Retriever mix but some of the behavior being described leads us to believe there is some Chow in there. For anyone interested in meeting Ragnar we will require they read the write up on him from the prior owner. Unfortunately with his bite history we will only get one final shot at finding him the right home. We hope one is out there. We "think" a single man or woman who can demonstrate they are in charge, that has very little company and strangers through the home would be best. He will also need to be the only dog. He will also need a fenced in yard to avoid having trouble with neighbor dogs.

Unfortunatly at her young age she came into us with a litter of puppies that she refused to take care of. We made the decision to pull her remaining babies and hand feed them and just wean her from them to keep her from continuing to reject them. She is a super sweet girl - just very young to have the responsibility of puppies. She is spayed, heartworm negative, current on her shots, wormed and micro-chipped.

Kilo was with us as an infant. He got adopted the end of July and got returned as he was too stressful for the wife. Kilo has a date of birth of 5/11/17. He is a American Bulldog/Boxer mix pup. He is an amazing pup, very smart and very energetic (which is normal for a puppy). He is going to be a pretty good sized boy. When he was returned we were told that he is now housebroken and he has done amazing in his kennel since he came back a few days ago. Please remember, if you are looking to adopt a puppy - they are lots of work and lots of energy. They get into everything - they chew everything and they need to learn all the good stuff - they don't come pre-trained. A puppy only grows into an amazing adult if you spend the time and energy to make it that way.

 . Jake .
  • Australian Shepherd
  • Spayed/Neutered

  • Special NeedsPrefers home without small kids
UPDATED INFO ON JAKE Some of you may remember Jake's story from November. This boy is 11 - he is HW positive and not strong enough for heavy treatment. He has lived his entire life tied up in a filthy dirty location with only a falling down shed for shelter and tied up on a chain. He had the chain on for... so many years that he had open raw sores around his neck. Additionally he was so thin you could count all of his ribs. We have never been able to find the right foster for Jake so he is living... with us at the shelter. He has come a LONG way since November. Living in the shelter isn't the idea life for him but it is a whole lot better than what he came out of. He has gained the weight he needed. We are doing slow HW treatment - which won't solve the problem but hopefully keep it from getting worse. He will never be adoptable. He is not neutered and with his heartworm that makes his outlook for life not perfect but he is loved here at the shelter, he gets attention from the staff regularly, he has good food and gets all of his needs tended to. He has become an overall healthy dog with the exception of his heartworm. He has a couple of quirks - he is not a fan of young children - they want to hug him and he goes NUTS when you do that. He doesn't like having his neck scratched or rubbed - that would be from 11 long years living on a chain. He will bite if you hug him or rub his neck the wrong way. He is NOT good with strangers. He takes a while to warm up. He is amazing with all of the volunteers around here that have spent the time to get to know him slowly. We have not given up on finding him a foster home to live out the balance of his senior years. We know he gets along with female dogs but not when it comes to food - he does protect that and we know that is because for 11 years he never got what was needed. He has done amazing with housebreaking and has not had any accidents in his kennel in about 3 months. We are very proud of the progress Jake has made. The upper left picture is when he came to us - the other two are now. A big thanks to those who have occasionally sent us a check to help pay for Jakes good senior food - it has been a tremendous help. Keep Jake in your thoughts and prayers.

 . Doobie .
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without small kids
Doobie is a 6 year old black lab who was surrendered to the shelter. She is not particularly fond of younger kids who like to bug her. She is housebroken. She should probably be an only dog - she doesn't seem to play extremely nice with other dogs. She shows LOTS of interest in the kittens around here - but maybe just a tad too much attention. If you are interested in a lab that is well past the destructive puppy stage - come visit Doobie. Her adoption fee is $150.00. She is now spayed, current on shots, heartworm tested and micro-chipped. Adoption applications can be found on our website at www.patriotsforpets.com

 . Destiny .
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
This beautiful girl is Destiny. She is one of the Texas flood rescues. This sweet girl looks to have had a rough life. She is very thin and needs weight put on her. She appears to have had more than one litter of pups. She is also heart worm positive. So she will be going through the treatment for them. Destiny is 3 years old and not sure her breed. She has eyes that will melt your heart. Destiny has done very well in the home setting and appears to be housebroke. No accidents so far. I do kennel her at night otherwise she has free reign of the house. She is very gentle and cannot get enough love. You can tell she has not had much of that in her life. Destiny does well with the other dogs and loves to play with them. Her self esteem is not so high. She surrenders to the ground and on her back if she thinks she is in trouble or even playing with the other dogs. She does good on the leash and has no problem with the cats. She also loves to stretch out on the couch. She is in a foster home and the above description is from her foster mom.

 . Delilah .
  • Blue Lacy
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without cats
This beautiful girl is Delilah - she is about 17 months old and unfortunately she has already had a litter of pups. She does fine with male dogs (have not tried female dogs) but she is pretty bossy for her age. She also bonds VERY quickly to her human so that is something that needs to be taken into consideration when adopting her. She is housebroken and gets along with all humans. No cats for this one. She is a Texas Blue Lacey so make sure if you are interested in her do your research on the breed. We don't see many of them in our area.

  • Dalmatian, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Special Needs
Chubba is still very young. His DOB is 2/13/17. He is a lab/dalmation mix. He lived a miserable six months here on this earth before coming to us and our goal to make the rest of his life a good one. He was "dumped" way before he was old enough to care for himself. He ended up in an area that was filled with Porcupine and had the needles all over his body - especially his face. He had to be live trapped to get him. He was absolutely terrified and is still leary of humans but is coming around vey slowly. It took almost two months for his sores to heal and for him to "tolerate" being touched but he is doing better - all physical wounds are healed and he is now coming to the gates looking for attention. He requires a loving and PATIENT home. He is not a "love you to death" type of puppy. You will have to earn that love through lots and lots of patience. He does great with other dogs and is starting to be curious about all of the attention they get. He would probably be best in a home with another dog to help him finish coming out of his shell (a non-aggressive dog of course). He doesn't have a mean bone in his body but as with any fearful dog - he could bite - so therefore no young children for this beautiful baby. He is afraid to eat with another dog near by so will require an area where he can be fed by himself. His adoption fee is $100.00. If you think you have the patience and love for this young guy, please go to our website and complete an adoption application you will find that at www.patriotsforpets.com He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.

 . Bella .
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Ms. Bella is a lab mix who is still very much a puppy. Her DOB is 1/14/17.. She got to come to the shelter to find a new home when she had a UTI and by day three the medication wasn't working so she ended up here with us. Well, we did the full round of medication on her and now no problems and she is looking for a forever home. She is a sweet girl with lots of energy. She gets along great with other dogs. She loves kids. She seems to ignore our kennel cat when she is loose and comes across the cat. She is a little shy when she first meets someone but warms up quickly. If you are interested in adopting Bella, please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application.

Abe is about 2 years old and he is a mixed breed dog - we believe he has some Heeler in him but what else is sitting in there is unknown. He is a good sized boy at 60 lbs. He gets along with other dogs and people of all ages. He seems to be curious about the cats but we haven't seen any aggression on that front. He has an amazing smile where he shows all of his teeth but we haven't been able to get a picture of it - he won't do it when the camera is pointed at him. His tail NEVER stops wagging. He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative, current on all preventatives and micro-chipped.
