Spayed or Neutered,
HOW TO ADOPT: This dog is available for adoption by appointment. To schedule a time to meet this dog, please email Enjoys pets and will hop into your lap if you invite him - Very sweet boy who is looking for a quiet home where he can just sit back and enjoy life with his new family - Likes going on walks and sniffing around - Young, noisy or busy children can be too much for him; will be happiest in a mature home - Can be shy and unsure around other dogs and is generally more of an introvert (dog intro recommended) - Needs a home with no cats The ARL's shelter software requires that we choose a primary breed for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most dogs we are only guessing at primary breed. We get to know each dog as an individual and do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not breed label. Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: Tan Weight: 21.7 Age: 7yrs 3mths 0wks

Jack Russell Terrier Rat Terrier

Male, puppy
Casey, IA
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Good with cats, Needs experienced adopter,
Douglas is super playful, friendly, smart, and very high energy. He is kennel trained and learns new commands quickly. He is good with meeting new people including kids, but he gets extremely excited and tends to jump, so babies or toddlers may not be a good fit. He needs a home with a yard so he has space to run. He LOVES to run and is extremely fast, but he's never ran away when he gets out of the fence. He needs to be stimulated--he loves training sessions and showing off how smart he is. We are planning a move and will have to give up our big fenced-in yard, so that is why we are searching for a new home for him.

These pups are in Clive, Iowa too!

Wirehaired Fox Terrier Poodle (Miniature)

Male, senior
Clive, IA
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Good with dogs,
This semi-scruffy little man is a true lover! He is like my little shadow. He gets along pretty well with guys and gals his size (the 6 fur-neighbors and crew of 3 at home), but enjoys being the center of attention. Sox prefers to snuggle in bed with his humans but with the crew he is with now there are doggie nights and there are kitty nights. He does love his tiny blue kong chew toy and some other pink chew toy. There is no need ro sneak treats in it. His front teefers might be all gone but the back teeth love the chew toy. Speaking of kitties... he is not afraid to approach them, which is why he spends his time with the doggie crew in the family room unless escorted to another room. "Approach is putting it nicely. Sweet Sox can sleep through the night without any accidents. Because the crew he hangs with lacks some discipline, it is a mystery how well he does when he roams freely, a puddle js a puddle, and none of the crew admits who did it. Sox is a light eater. He can chew some kibble and hard crunchy treats but it is easier to eat soft food. He has feasted on the Purina One Chicken and Brown Rice Tender Cuts in Gravy or their other choice of Beef and Barley Tender Cuts in Gravy. But mostly Sox fills up on The Honest Kitchen Grain Free Chicken Recipe and their turkey version (new on the menu). You might ask how he got his name Tusky. When he was surrendered he literally had bottom teeth that looked like Tusks! Soon after being saved he visited the vet and was scheduled for teeth extractions! All the front teef are ancient history. Tusky Sox seems rather healthy, however he did test positive for heartworm. He is being treated on a slow treatment, a combination of doxycycline every other 30 days and heart worm chews every 2 weeks! Wrap the doxy in a piece of turkey or other delicious leftover and he is good to go! BTW he answers to Sox, his given name moons ago. Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)
