|Rescue Me ID: 14-11-14-00458Farley (male)|
Farley is looking for his forever home with someone who loves to go for long walks and hikes (and has the time and patience to help him reach his full potential at walking politely on a leash without pulling), someone who is consistent, patient, has lots of energy, and also someone who loves to cuddle and give affection! If you have these qualities, Farley has so much potential to be your extremely loyal and loving companion. We originally fostered Farley from Midwest Animal Rescue while we were living in Minneapolis. While we were fostering him, he had a health condition which cost the rescue organization vet bills and medication bills. After fostering him for over a year, the organization told us that they could no longer afford to foster him out, and that if we did not want to adopt him, he would have to be euthanized. We had grown to love Farley and could not let him be euthanized, although we had not intended to adopt a dog at the time. So Farley became officially ours in 2010. Since, then we have moved to Iowa City and we've had a daughter who is currently 16 months old. Farley no longer has a health issue - we later discovered that his issues had been due to a tick born illness, which we were able to eliminate with the correct medication. Farley is currently a healthy, approximately 7 year old male (Midwest Animal Rescue was unsure of his exact age). We believe that he is an american staffordshire terrier possibly mixed with a spaniel of some sort. We have never seen Farley be aggressive toward a human. In fact, it's been the opposite. Farley loves adult attention from anyone willing to pet him or give him a belly rub. He loves to cuddle and be near his human. He will excitedly greet you (or anyone coming into your home) at the door. We have one other dog in our home, and with the exception one unfortunate incident right after we adopted the second dog, our dogs have gotten along great since. Farley has never attacked another dog, and he has been around a few other family members dogs. He does, however, bark and growl aggressively at dogs through the window and also when we go on walks. Farley has quite a bit of nervous energy and seems to be an anxious guy. He does bark a lot through our window at passers by. He loves to leave the house for car rides, but will not sit down, even during a several hours long car ride. He stands the entire time and paces excitedly. We have found that lots of exercise and consistent training and discipline can help with Farley's high energy, barking, and anxious behaviors. Sadly, we have come to the conclusion that with a small child of our own now, we do not have the time to devote to Farley that he desperately needs and deserves. The other reason for our finding Farley a new home is that, although Farley has always adored constant adult attention, he sometimes seems a bit annoyed by our curious 16 month old, who loves to follow him around and 'bother' him. He has given her a couple of unhappy grunts and we would hate for this to become an issue. We think Farley would do best in a house with no small children, although older kids should be absolutely fine. (Less)

|Animal ID: 23390459Betsy (female)|
Betsy is an amazing girl! She was abandoned and tied to a light pole outside the Boone Area Humane Society facility. She loves to chase squirrels and enjoys playing with puppies. Unfortunately she is not ok with all dogs, but could be worked with to learn to coexist. Betsy does well on a leash, but can jump fences! Please help us find Betsy a loving home! This lady deserves it!

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-21-00446Bella (female)|
I have a 11 month old 'gotti' lined pit-bull/bully. She has been around other dogs but is very dominant. I've never had any issues with my kids and her but like I said she is very domineering. I will not just adopt to just anyone. I want her to go to a great home with no dogs and no kids preferable. I don't want to take her to the pound and will be very cautious about who she goes too. Contact me by email.

|Rescue Me ID: 13-10-25-00548ChaCha- LOVES KIDS! (female)|
ChaCha is a 6 year old female Staffordshire Terrier weighing 75 pounds that is fully housebroken and crate trained. She is a beautiful 'blue' gray and white color, and she is very playful & has a true zest for life- you'd never know she was an adult by the way she is always smiling, soaking up the attention and company of others! ChaCha loves to play ball with you and could go for hours, but when playing quietly, I have found that a durable Kong toy or Nylabone is best as she can get a little carried away! She is afraid of loud noises, i.e. fireworks, garbage trucks, and thunderstorms, so a new owner would need to know there will be times when ChaCha will be needing your emotional support (and lap). She is also not a fan of water; if it is raining she will not go outside- she IS a California rescued dog, after all! ChaCha is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed and LOVES children- her previous adopter who is looking to find her a new home has two small boys, and ChaCha has learned to be extremely gentle and not plow into them when she is overly excited. She would make a family complete with her nuturing and affectionate personality, to be sure. Because she can easily climb a fence, she would need to be supervised while outdoors; we prefer that any yard have at least a 5-6 ft fence. A born athlete, ChaCha is a runner and will chase rabbits, squirrels, and cats (thus, we do not believe she should be in a home with any cats). Currently, ChaCha is in training, working on not only socialization around other dogs but working on improving her proper leash skills as she can be a strong puller; we have found she does best with a prong collar. Because she exhibits anxiety when around other dogs- losing focus and becoming reactive to their energy- we believe Chacha's ideal home would have her as the only pet. If you are interested in discussing Chacha further, and possibly setting up a meeting, please contact Rachel at #323-929-7311 or via email: Hollywooftotherescue@gmail.com. https://www.facebook.com/rachelmlamb/media_set?set=a.10152405851967550.1073741883.551257549&type=1 (Less)
