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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: South Amana, IA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Brisco is a great, medium sized dog that was originally adopted through Safe Haven in March, 2012. He had a wonderful family that loved him dearly for 4 years. When they realized they could no longer provide him a safe home because he began crawling up and over their fence and had started to explore the neighbor's field of cattle they knew they had to find him a different home. Brisco also has separation anxiety and will chew when left for long periods of time in a home alone. He needs someone who has unconditional love, time, and a willingness to train him. In return he would give lots of love to an active family of his own. Brisco enjoys playing with several of our other dogs, walks, and everyone he meets. Interested in adopting this pet?

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Australian Shepherd Mix
      Sex: Female Female

      Location: South Amana, IA
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Cinder came to Safe Haven from Belle Plaine where she was picked up as a stray. She is reported to get along with other dogs, although we think she may want to play a little too rough with most of our dogs right now. She definitely leans more toward the "Energizer Bunny" than a "Couch Potato." We have had her in a room with a few cats and she seems like she would be fine with them, even a little scared of one of the cats :) However she does seem like the type of dog that would enjoy chasing a cat that was running from her. She loves car rides, and knows simple commands. She is described as active, jumpy, loving, excitable, and playful. Interested in adopting this pet?

      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (short coat). Bubba was transferred to Safe Haven on 9/25/16 from another rescue that asked for our help finding this good looking fella a new home. He is estimated from a couple different vets to be between 2 and 3 years old. Bubba loves to go on walks and also rides in a car very well. The volunteers who have worked with him feel a quiet home with one or two dog-savvy adults would be best. Interested in adopting this pet? Please click the adoption info link for more information.

      Location: South Amana, IA
      Posted Breed: Husky (medium coat). Update- 10/15/16 Keesha was brought back to us, she had a very bad ear infection but we got her feeling better. We have learned that since Keesha is an older gal and would do great in a quiet home and to retire in. Keesha came to us through the Iowa County Pound. She is a sweetheart and is now ready for adoption, although we are still trying to get her in a little better shape and looking good - she does suffer from hot spots which have been shaved to get air to them. The hair is starting to grow back in those areas while she continues to get treatment. We are currently treating a double ear infection with a few more days treatment scheduled. She already is acting as if she does feel better. Keesha also may need some dental work somewhere down the line. Her teeth are not the pearliest looking we have seen. Interested in adopting this pet?

      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      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.

      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: 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.

      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.
