Hannah is a sweet 8-10 year old, 8 lb girl that came into rescue because her owner passed away. She was very timid at first but has warmed up very nicely. She now wants to snuggle and will allow me to pick her up . Due to her age she does sleep for the better part of the day. She would do best with a family where she is the only dog or a family that has small dogs who are not aggressive. Hannah is a special needs iggy due to her seizure condition. She is on medication three times a day to minimize the occurrances. She takes her meds very easily. She also moves differently due to a luxating patella condition which was not properly treated when she was young. Her condition was reviewed by a vet and it was determined that doing surgery at this point would be risky. Even with her condition, she scoots around the house and is a happy girl. She is able to navigate stairs as long as they have some texture and are not slippery. She will need steps to get on and off of the bed or couch. I would not leave her unattended with access to stairs until you are certain that there is no safety risk. She is also not able to go for walks on concrete or pavement unless she has booties on here rear feet. Hannah currently sleeps in bed but was crate trained when she arrived so I feel she would tranistion back to this fairly easily. She is also pad trained and does a great job with a few exceptions where she is standing on the edge of the pad and misses! She also has access to a fenced in yard and will go in and out on her own using a supervised dog door. She loves to explore outside and is quite curious and a fenced yard is a must for her. Hannah recently had dental surgery. Due to the dental neglect prior to coming into rescue, the periodontal disease had progressed so far that all 28 remaining teeth were removed. In addition, it caused bone loss in her jaw causing her lower jaw to break. It has been stabilized and will have a follow up end of Dec. with her vet. She is on the mend now and true to Hannah's nature, she does not let this slow her down! She requires a bit more time to eat her meals and eats only soft food now but she doesn't seem to mind at all. If you are looking for a quiet yet loving and silly girl, Hannah would be a great fit for you! She is fostering in Decorah Iowa. She is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, heartworm negative, and on preventatives. WE RESPOND TO ALL INQUIRIES.

My name is Mae. I’m a super sweet and happy girl. I’ve had a busy life! I spent some hard time on the streets but I’m ready for my home indoors now. I have wonderful potty habits. I use my potty pads (or mostly) when I’m alone or scratch at the door when someone is home. I stay happily in my crate when my family is gone and often times put myself there even if they leave me out. I get alone well with my foster sisters, a dog and cat although I’m not much interested in playing with them. I do love to play with toys and run around the house with my family especially before dinnertime. Did I mention dinner? I love dinner. And breakfast. And snacks or treats or any other food. I sometimes like to talk when my family is making me dinner. I have to bark so they still know I’m waiting to eat! I like being near my foster family but I’m not much for snuggling. I prefer to curl up in my dog bed or the spare chair with a blanket. I sleep in my open crate in a sunroom with potty pads and I’m quiet through the night. I’m very good on walks on a leash as well. I’d love a home that doesn’t mind if I need space but will still shake my toy around when I want to wiggle and play! I require lots of blankets because I love to curl up in them and dinner. Did I mention dinner yet? I don’t take much to be happy. Let me show you my sweet side with my happy waggy tail and loving attitude. Mae is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, Heartworm negative and on HW preventatives. She will be having a dental cleaning right after Thanksgiving and then will be ready for her new home! WE RESPOND TO ALL INQUIRIES.

FOSERTING NEAR DAVENPORT IOWA Slater is a sweet, loving and easy going 10-year-old boy who gets along well with everyone and everything he meets! He is a very easy keeper! He loves dogs both big and small and is cat safe, although he will occasionally chase the cat for his entertainment. He loves people, and is happiest when he can curl up on the couch under a blanket next to his family. Slater is happy to go into his crate at night and when his foster mom has to go somewhere, and is always excited to get the special treat that comes with going into his crate. He’s not too happy about going outside when the cold winter wind is blowing, but can be bribed with treats. Slater enjoys toys with squeakers and can spend hours chasing and barking at the squirrels in the backyard so we want Slater placed in a home with a fenced yard as this is how he can comfortably get his exercise. Slater entered rescue weighing almost 25 lbs, but with a healthy diet and exercise, he is now a slim and beautiful 13 lbs. He is very fond of eating, and so his foster family has to be careful not to leave food where he can reach it, and if he finds the pantry door open even a crack, he will get in and start helping himself. He walks well on a leash, but he can’t go for walks anymore due to the pain it causes in his front legs. He takes supplements and is fine around the house and yard, but if he does strenuous exercise it causes him pain. Slater had been diagnosed with Cushing’s disease and was on medication until it started causing problems with his kidneys. After being off of the medication for a while, tests showed no sign of the Cushing’s disease (for three years now--he is in remission) so he is currently only taking a thyroid medication and the joint supplement. He will require occasional bloodwork to ensure that the Cushing’s doesn’t reappear and that his kidneys continue to function normally. There is no way to know how this disease might affect him in the long-term; he could live a long, healthy life, or the tumor in his pituitary gland could decide to grow, causing neurological problems. He has had no additional problems due to the Cushing’s since the medication was stopped 3 years ago. Slater has 2-3 seizures per year but since it is very infrequent and they are short lasting, he does not require medication. This boy is incredibly sweet and can’t wait to find a forever home that will give him all of the love and attention he knows he deserves! He has been waiting a looooooong time!

Sweet, beautiful 9 yo Little Miss Nelli comes to us from the south and is continuing her social rehabilitation in one of our wonderful foster homes in Lincoln, NE. She is new to us so we are still learning about her. What we do know is she came from a puppy mill living out her entire life in a cage and came into rescue weighing 5#.. No way for a dog to live. She is now exploring and learning how to be a dog and how to trust and also how to be someone's pampered pet. She is very active for her 9 years! Don't let her age fool you! She is a funny girl whose tail wags and wags! She will need a home with someone who is familiar with puppy mill dogs or very timid dogs as she will need patience and understanding while she continues her social rehabilitation. She needs a secure, fenced yard as she LOVES to zoom around and run and "hunt". She deserves that after so many years in a cage. She does great with her foster IG siblings and loves to snuggle up with them and learns the "ropes" from them. She has been great with the two other large dogs in the home as well. However, they are calm and not the playful type. She is nervous around large, playful and active dogs. She seems to really enjoy kids as long as they are kind and respectful. She has recently learned leash skills and has been enjoying neighborhood walks as of lately. She is going outside to potty beautifully when let outside throughout the day. She does crate nicely and quiety overnight without a peep or potty breaks and while foster mom is away. She does not prefer to sleep with her human, at least now. She is showing her attachement to her new foster mom so that has been wonderful to watch. She is not a jump in your lap and snuggle kind of dog right now but will allow petting when she trusts you. She is just now learning to sit on foster mom's lap and receive love and take a little nap. Foster mom is unable to pick her up at will but Nelli does know the "kennel" command and when she goes into her kennel, foster mom is able to pick her up. She is slowly getting more comfortable with this. Small dogs in her foster home bring her comfort and we do want her in a home with another small dog or two (even better). Please do undestand that she will be an increased flight risk so great care will be needed when taking her out on leash, or while indoors when doors are opened. She should NEVER be unsupervised outdoors and fence gates will requrie locks so they won't be accidently be left open. If you think you can provide Nelli a patient, safe and nurturing home while understanding that right now she is not the typical "follow you all around the house and jump in your lap and snuggle you under the covers" IG, please get in touch with us. These mill dogs do make wonderful strides once they leave the mill behind but it can take quite a long time and it is very rewarding to watch.
