Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Zeek! Zeek is seeking his forever family. His original owner lived in an apartment and found out that Zeek would bark too much during the day while he was home alone. So he contacted Safe Haven and asked us to help him find a new home for Zeek. This owner did tell us that he knew Zeek's parents and that Zeek is a Catahoula / Lab mix.....which we think is a super cute mix! That said, Zeek does have some look of a pitty to him, whether that is by chance or related to his actual heritage, we couldn't say. Zeek is housetrained, knows a few tricks, loves long walks, running around outside (often doing happy figure 8's!) cuddling on the couch, belly rubs, older children, women, car rides, playing tug of war, eating peanut butter out of a kong, small rawhides, and hot dogs. His "tricks" include: sit, shake, roll over, and jump high for treats! Zeek is not always comfortable with men upon first meeting them, he needs time to warm up. Zeek also does not seem to care for other animals, particularly other dogs. Zeek is a very strong dog, so he will need a strong owner who is willing/able to work with him on walking nicely on a leash (currently he tends to pull). Zeek is our longest term canine resident at Safe Haven. For the right person or family, he would make for an incredibly loyal, fun, and protective companion. Interested in adopting this pet?

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

    • Dalmatian Dog For Adoption in South Amana, IA

      Hawkeye

      rescue
      Breed: Dalmatian
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: South Amana, IA
      Posted Breed: Dalmatian (short coat). Hawkeye and his mother Heidi came into us just recently because his owner passed away. Hawkeye has lived the first 3 years of his life outside in a horse barn. So, Hawkeye would do best to live somewhere with plenty of space to run. and will need work and patience with housebreaking if his next family wants him to be an inside dog. He also does tend to be protective of his food and toys, etc. - so caution needs to be used when feeding and handling anything he deems important, therefore he may do best in a home without little kids that could potentially have trouble remembering this. Hawkeye and his mother have had loving care in the past and show it with their friendliness and desire to be loved, and we know they each deserve a seconde chance with a new forever home.

      Location: South Amana, IA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Sophie is a sweet little Chiweenie (Chihuahua / Dachshund) dog who would make someone a great lap dog. When we take her to adoption events at PetCo she sits primly on our laps all three hours! She does not seem to like big dogs sticking their noses in her face, but she is fine with children approaching her and petting her. When Sophie first came to Safe Haven she had very "gunky" eyes - so after a couple different treatments from the regular vet, she was sent to see an eye specialist that prescribed special drops that are really helping and her eyes look great. These eye drops will be something that Sophie will likely need the rest of her life, so if you are considering adopting this cuddle bug, there will be ongoing treatment needed, and if interested we will discuss further details regarding Sophie's eye drops.

      Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: South Amana, IA
      Posted Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound (short coat). Cora is a super friendly dog that loves everyone she meets and hasn't met a snack she doesn't like either! When she came into Safe Haven she was pregnant and after safely having her 4 puppies, she was a great mom. The puppies have now been adopted to 4 great families, so we can focus on finding that perfect home for Cora. While raising her pups Cora was able to go to a foster home where she loved to go on walks and even tractor rides! Cora seems to really love men!! She did get along with a few new dogs that we have introduced her to, but she isn't too sure about a few other dogs she meets. She will chase a cat that runs from her, so we would not recommend for her to go to a family with kitties. Cora is very playful and loves her toys. One of her favorite pastimes is to chew up any stuffed toy that we give her...she is determined to get out that squeeky disc from inside the stuffed dog toys! Cora was adopted to a family that liked to go Coon Hunting, and Cora loved it....but unfortunately over the last year Cora decided she did not want to recall, or come back, when out hunting. She also has been known to roam away from home as well - So the family felt they could no longer give her the home she needs to stay safe and happy. So Cora may not be the perfect hunting dog, oand she really could not be outside on a farm without a fenced in yard - but she sure loves the outdoors. If you are looking for a fun dog with so much to offer, please come meet Cora! Interested in adopting this pet? Please click the adoption info link for more information.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This little lady takes awhile to warm up to you, but once she does she will give you lots of love. Oreo enjoys when people sit with her in her kennel so she can crawl right into your lap. If you are looking for a quiet little lap dog, Oreo may be your gal!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Holly is a wonderful loving Chihuahua whose owner recently passed away. The owner was a huge animal lover and supporter of Safe Haven and her family has kindly asked Safe Haven to help find Holly a new forever home where she will be loved for the great dog that she is. Holly is used to being around children and just sitting on your lap soaking in all the love and attention you can offer her! Update 10/2016 - Holly went to the vet to have a loose tooth pulled, and during a routine bloodwork test it was discovered that Holly does have Cushings Disease. She has started special medication to help this condition, but will need ongoing monitoring and vet visits so the vet can make sure her condition is being managed. Interested in adopting this pet?

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Chihuahua Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: South Amana, IA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). We are trying to find just the right home for Roman and Spike. They found themselves without a home last January. Since they had been together for twelve years, this was a big change. But a thoughtful couple have been caring for them all this time. Because they have their own two dogs, they are looking for a new forever home that will work for both Roman and Spike. Just look at them. Don't they look like they are "best buds"? It would be awesome if they could find a new home together, but separating them is not a deal breaker. Both are male and neutered, and up to date on their shots. Spike weighs 5 lbs and Roman 90 lbs. They both get along with other dogs, although Roman does best with females. Roman likes to go for a walk every day. They both do best with older children. If you are interested in both or either, please contact Melissa at 563-542-5609 or msberg1230@gmail.com.
