Zorro is a timid little boy that is going to need lots of time, patience and love from his new family. He has, however, shown significant progress in the short time he has been in our home. He gives kisses, likes to play, loves belly rubs and even got his first bath and he did great! Once he trusts a person, he doesn’t let you get far without him trailing closely behind. Zorro has gotten along with the other small dogs in the house but he doesn't seem to be a fan of big dogs, we are unsure of cats and we don't anticipate any issues with children over the age of 10. Zorro is house trained but is still too nervous with us to work on kennel training. We have been gating him in our kitchen while we’re gone and he does just fine. Zorro will need a fenced in yard, as we have been told he is terrified of leashes and he can jump over baby gates. Zorro is a sweet boy with tons of personality and tons of love to give, he just needs to find the perfect family that will give him the patience and love he needs to trust again.All adoptions are $200 per dog which include spay/neuter, micro-chipped and up-to-date on required shots.

Senior dogs, at our discretion, are adopted out at $100 per dog because we know they will have less time with your family and may eventually have more needs as they get older. But we feel these dogs deserve to live out the rest of their lives as part of a loving family.

About Forever Home Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Forever Home Dog Rescue is dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals primarily from high-kill shelters.

In working with committed volunteers, temporary care homes and local veterinarians, we are able to rescue dogs, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. All our rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and have all necessary veterinary care.

We were formed in January 2014 and are a non-profit organization in central Iowa. We are pending our official 501c3 status. We receive no government funding and rely completely on donations.
