Story
Tiare is such a kind and loving dog although she is still shy. Her daily activities include laying in her bed or on couch, sitting on my lap for short periods & new activity. She occasionally plays with a toy. Likes the kennel door open with her bed in the kennel. She comes and goes as she pleases. She also occasionally visits other kennels that are open which may or may not contain another dog. She will lay in a kennel with other dogs without any problem or issues. She prefers a quiet laid back person or dog friend. She begins to pace around when she has to go potty. Sometimes she will go out the door by herself or with other dogs. Other times she runs away from the door but when you come over to pick her up to take her outside she usually lays down and lets you pick her up to take her outside. A fenced area would work best for her when she goes outside. She still has occasional pee accidents but no poop accidents recently. When in the kennel she hasn't had any poop or pee accidents for several weeks. Can navigate 3-4 stairs on deck without problem. Does not care for a leash yet. Generally is quiet but has been known to bark when her dog friends do. Seems to have preference for women. Avoids young active children. Has not shown any aggression of any type. Tiare has been spayed and is current on vaccinations. She had a basic dental completed. She tested negative for heartworms. Tiare's adoption fee is $300.00. If you are a preapproved adopter, email adoptions.scdr@gmail.com to let us know you are interested. If you are not preapproved, you will need to complete the application at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com Thanks!

She weighs 9.6 pounds and has been shy with us so will need a family that can give her lots of time and patience to warm up and get settled in. She lets us pick her up and is scared at first, but then settles down and seems to enjoy being held. Oliana has gotten along well with the other dogs at the rescue.Oliana has been spayed, microchipped and is up to date on vaccines. She tested negative for heartworm. She had a dental exam and cleaning and needed a few teeth removed. Our vet said she is apparently healthy.

Shamus has been neutered, microchipped & is up to date on his vaccines. His heartworm test was negative and he had a dental exam and cleaning. He needed several teeth removed. Our vet said he is apparently healthy.

Story
Meet Annalise! She's the absolute sweetest petite border collie mix. She's a little shy, but she looooooooves people so much. She's good with other dogs, but they scare her if they're too rambunctious. We think she would come out of her shell and thrive in a home. Annalise is about 4 years old and only weighs 29 pounds. She's very easy going and calm.IMPORTANT: Please read all below, especially if you live outside of Texas, which is where our rescue is located.Apply to adopt on our website: https://www.charmingpetrescue.org/adoptAll of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots.ALL of our animals are located in Boerne, TX, but transport after adoption is available to other states for a $300 fee for dogs or an additional fee varying by location for cats.

Those are currently the only options they offer to make this clear, so we put this description we've put at the bottom to explain it.

Story
Meet Magellan! He had been living on the street for a few months when someone asked if we could take him in. He’s sooooo happy and bouncy! He weighs 51 pounds and is about a year old, still a baby with sparkling white teeth! He is GREAT with the other dogs in the yard and so he is able to run free with the front yard pack. He has a chill disposition and isn’t dominant with the other dogs. Believe it or not, sometimes street dogs can be more well adjusted than a dog that is owner surrendered! He’s probably even good with cats, we can always cat test any dog! Magellan loves to play! He would be a great addition to any home!IMPORTANT: Please read all below, especially if you live outside of Texas, which is where our rescue is located.Apply to adopt on our website: https://www.charmingpetrescue.org/adoptAll of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots.ALL of our animals are located in Boerne, TX, but transport after adoption is available to other states for a $300 fee for dogs or an additional fee varying by location for cats.
