Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Golden Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). 4-13-13 6 months old and still waiting. She is house trained now, making progress but still very, very shy and a flight risk so please be aware of this before inquiring. 1-15-2013 Just 12 to 14 weeks old Ava has never known the comforts of a home or family. She started her life out on the streets. Read more here http://www.facebook.com/TheForlornDogsOhHughesAr?ref=ts&fref=ts A small Arkansas town is inundated with stray and abandoned dogs. Many are shot by locals, hit on the roads or die from starvation. We wanted to help so Ava and several others made the trip to Iowa. She is still figuring out that all humans aren't bad and will need a securely fenced yard and a doggy friend would be great to help her adjust. She will be available as soon as she is spayed and vetted (done). Our first contact is ALWAYS e-mail for an application or more information. Note...Please understand how shy she is before inquiring! She is not for the first time or inexperenced dog owner. She requires a fenced yard and a quieter home without small children...for her own safety! She is being fostered near Grundy Center Ia. ameow2002@yahoo.com please e-mail directly and don't use the auto response...thanks!

More About Golden Labrador Breed
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.

      Bogie/Adopte...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Puggle
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Pug / Mixed (short coat). Bogie was a stray at an animal control unit and was transferred here when his time was up as no one came for him. Guessed to be 6ish years old, he weighs 35#. I originally thought he may be a Beagle/Cocker mix but after looking at him more i think he may in fact be a Puggle with just a splash of Cocker? Who really knows? What i do know is he is a very friendly little guy who loves to ride in the car but does need some work on his manners. He does jump up so probably no small kids as he may scratch them and unintentionally knock them down. He would do best with a fenced yard (Beagle's will follow their nose) and someone who is home with him most of the time. He seems to like other dogs and so far pays no attention to cats. Appears to be house trained as he keeps his kennel clean. Neutered, vetted, all vaccines, heartworm tested and micro-chipped. E-mail is ALWAYS the first step for more information or an application.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Travis is a sweet little guy who we pulled from an animal control unit where he ended up stray and wasn't claimed. Guess at about 5 years old and only 8# he has a beautiful brindle coat. He gets along well with the other dogs and cats in his foster home and is working on his house training. He is a little shy and timid at first but warms up pretty quickly altho a household with noisy small children might be too much for him. Fenced yard preferred or someone committed to keeping him safe. Neutered, vetted, all vaccines, heartworm tested and micro-chipped. E-mail is ALWAYS the first step for more information or an application.

      Breed: Siberian Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky / Red Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Merlin is new to rescue but what we know so far is he is a very friendly dog. He was dumped on some people in the country who then asked for rescue help so we have no history. Looks to be a Husky/Heeler mix, 55# but will fill out some and is just 18 to 24 months old. He is a long legged boy and with the breed mix he will be very active and need an active family to keep up with him. Fenced yard preferred. He is young and hasn't been taught much but is eager to please and will learn quickly. I say no small kids only due to his size and exuberance level as he may inadvertently knock little ones over. Seems to be very dog friendly and not too interested in the cats in his foster home. Now fully vetted, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested and micro-chipped. E-mail is ALWAYS the first step for more information or an application.

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Jersey is just in. Dropped off by the local Sheriff's dept when it was discovered her owner had moved and left her. She is a very sweet girl, just 43 lbs, 2-3 yrs old and a little thin. She has some hair loss and has had puppies in the past. I think she would chase cats if they run and should be ok with other friendly dogs after a proper introduction. She is gentle and well behaved and i would think she would be fine with older respectful children. Fenced yard preferred as this is an active, smart breed. Spayed, vetted, all vaccines , heartworm tested and micro-chipped. E-mail is ALWAYS the first step for more information or an application.

      Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound. Where to start with Walt? Found wandering on a hwy, 20 lbs underweight and barely hanging on. His vet visit discovered internal and external parasites, a raging UTI and he was heartworm positive. Several months later and he has now packed on the pounds, been neutered, vaccinated, treated for his UTI, micro-chipped and had his heartworm treatment. He will need retested in a few months but all signs point to a successful outcome. He will need to be kept on heartworm preventative as all dogs should be but it is imperative for him. About 6 years old, 75 lbs now, he is a typical Coonhound, stubborn and somewhat independent, he is also sensitive and gentle and will need someone who can take their time, be patient and understand that he has had a pretty crappy life until now. Not an apartment dog, not a farm dog or lawn ornament, he will require a securely fenced yard or in hound fashion, he would follow his nose into the sunset. Should be fine with other similar sized friendly dogs but would say no to cats or other small furries. E-mail is always the first step for more information or an application.

      rescue
      Breed: Chion
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Papillon / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Miss Tuxie came to us when her owner could no longer care for her. We are told she is a Papillon/Chihuahua mix and is about 5 years old. She is a tiny little thing and likes to run outdoors so will need a very tight, securely fenced yard. She is scared of new people, takes awhile to warm up and prefers women over men. Not a good fit for homes with small children. She is spayed, current on vaccines, heartworm tested, micro-chipped and is being fostered in the Jewell IA area with other dogs and cats. Seeking a furever home this time around so be committed, as she does not handle change well. E-mail is always the first step for more info or an application.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Jenny has waited far too long for her forever commitment and it is starting to wear on her. On the plus side...House trained, perfect size, great house manners, walks well on a leash and has good recall off leash. Loyal, affectionate and protective, this is a great dog for the RIGHT home! And she loves water..and the mud it makes too! On the minus side she is not good with new dogs but will make up with a proper introduction and time, and she needs an experienced adult only home where she isn't allowed to run the show. She will need someone who is willing to visit her several times to get to know her prior to adoption. Happy once she bonds with you, and active, she always appears to be smiling but she is getting sad at the shelter and NEEDS her own home. One that will stick by her thru thick and thin. Spayed and fully vetted, e-mail is ALWAYS our first contact for more information or an application. Please e-mail ameow2002@yahoo.com directly and don't use the auto response...thanks!

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Sawyer was a puppy mill release. Guessed at about 3 years old and he weighs 13 lbs. He is shy but making progress in his foster home. He will need a more experienced home and is not for the first time dog owner. He is not house trained but is working on crate training and house training will come with patience and consistency. A belly band helps too. No small children please! He gets along well with the other small dogs but does need to be separated at meal time. He will need a fenced yard or someone committed to keeping him safe with harness and leash walks. No tieing these mill dogs out unattended as it isn't safe. He has now been fully vetted, had a dental, cherry eye repair, neuter, all vaccines, heart worm test and micro-chip. E-mail is ALWAYS our first contact for more information or an application. He is being fostered in the Grundy Center Ia area.

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Eldora, IA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Finn is a puppymill reject, too old to 'produce' anymore. Guessed between 8 and 10 years old and is about 10 lbs. He lost most of his teeth in his recent dental so his tongue hangs out (pretty cute actually). He is not house trained but tolerates a belly band well. Gets along well with the other little dogs but they do all have to be separated at meal time. He is pretty friendly and social considering his past. Likes to cuddle and give kisses. No small children please! He will either need a fenced yard or someone committed to harness and leash walks to keep him safe. No tie outs! He doesn't really need or want much exercise. He is now of course neutered, fully vetted, all vaccines, heartworm tested and micro-chipped. E-mail is ALWAYS our first contact for an application or more information. He is being fostered in the Grundy Center Ia area. Please e-mail ameow2002@yahoo.com directly and don't use the auto response...thanks!
