    Harley is a 5 year old, 45 pound Kelpie. She came to Iowa from Texas after Hurricane Harvey. Harley was homeless before the hurricane and moved north to make room for the dogs that would need to be held so their owners could find them after the storm. Harley needed some help when she arrived in Iowa. She had a small limbal tumor in her left eye and had eye surgery to remove it. Harley also had a painful neck. The vets discovered she had a herniated disc in her neck and did another surgery to fix it. Harley is now happy and healthy and ready to find a home of her own. Harley is a sweet, gentle girl who loves attention. She has great ... (Read More)house manners. Harley has two favorite things in life. Car rides and soft toys. Harley will happily hop in a car and go anywhere with you. She rides shotgun and does great. Harley carries her soft toys everywhere with her and loves to cuddle with them. Since Harley is a Kelpie, she is one of the smartest of all breeds. She is highly intelligent and learns quickly. Her superior intellect combined with her intensity and passion for keeping busy means she needs an owner smarter than she is. Harley's forever home should have a fenced yard and no kids under 10. Kelpie's were bred to herd and she would quickly have small children herded up. Harley would be happiest to be an only dog but would also do well with a calm male dog. A cat would be viewed as a squeaky toy. Harley is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and heartworm tested.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-07-00152Ragnar (male)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Ragnar - he was originally with us last year and has been returned. We are not even sure where to start in describing him. We have a 8 page report from his adopters describing him. There are tons and tons of good stuff on him and what a wonderful dog he is - but he is described as having a Jekyll and Hyde personality. He will do great and then all of sudden turn on someone that he knows or was just loving up to. Unfortunately in a home with children, family and friends the changing of personalities did not work. Since we have seen none of the unwanted behavior here we aren't even positive what to look for in an adopter. He ... (Read More)is only two years old - has been to trainers who have not seen the issue so can't even begin to advise on additional things to try. The behavior exists and rears it's ugly head when least expected. About 80% of the time he appears good with other dogs and then all of a sudden that goes bad. He was originally shown as a Retriever mix but some of the behavior being described leads us to believe there is some Chow in there. For anyone interested in meeting Ragnar we will require they read the write up on him from the prior owner. Unfortunately with his bite history we will only get one final shot at finding him the right home. We hope one is out there. We 'think' a single man or woman who can demonstrate they are in charge, that has very little company and strangers through the home would be best. He will also need to be the only dog. He will also need a fenced in yard to avoid having trouble with neighbor dogs. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chow Chow in Iowa
    Chow Chow Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. The Chow Chow is a big furry breed whose name literally means Puffy Lion Dog. Chow Chows are loyal companion animals but can sometimes be stubborn, obstinate, and overprotective against strangers. Chow chows need to be handled by a firm master. Chow chows can be aggressive with other pets but most are good with kids. Chow chows can live in an apartment and are equally good as inside or outside dogs. Daily walks help stave off behavior problems, although Chow Chows can be resistant to exercise.
