Rescue Me ID: 16-11-09-00619Jake (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We want to introduce you to one very special dog - his name is Jake. Jake has a horrible story to tell and the people who owned him should be ashamed of themselves and should NEVER EVER be able to own even a stuffed animal in the future. This boy is 11 - he is HW positive and not strong enough for heavy treatment. He has lived his entire life tied up in a filthy dirty location with only a falling down shed for shelter and tied up on a freaking chain. He had the chain on for so many years that he had open raw sores around his neck. Additionally he was so thin you could count all of his ribs. Well that ended on Tuesday when he came to us. He ... (Read More)can not be officially adopted - he is 11 years old and not neutered and with his heartworm he can't undergo the neuter surgery - he additionally isn't in good enough health to undergo heavy treatment. He will be, more likely than not, living out whatever time he has left here on this earth (that has been so misereable for him) with us here at Patriots for Pets or in a hospice foster. If we don't find the right hospice foster for him then he will be going home with our Rescue Coordinator. We can't promise him lush surroundings, We can't promise him extremely expensive toys - but damn it we can promise him love and NEVER A CHAIN around his neck again, never stuck outside in the heat and cold and NEVER going to sleep with his belly growling because his stinking human forgot to feed him. If you think you could show this boy the love and attention he so deserves get in touch with us and we can discuss it - Patriot's will be covering the cost of his ongoing 'soft' heartworm treatment and whatever other medical care he may need to assure he is taken care of for the rest of his life - no matter if that is a week, a month, a year or more. We promised to love Jake and we know you all will love him to if you come out to meet him. Keep Jake in your prayers - he needs them and he needs your support - and he deserves to know that humans aren't all bad. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in Iowa
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. The Australian Shepherd, or Aussie, is a playful breed that provides excellent companionship to active children. Aussies are smart, trainable, protective, and eager to please. Australian Shepherds are gentle with humans and aggressive when herding farm animals. Aussies are active even when indoors and do best with plenty of exercise in a large yard.

lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Australian Shepherds are not Australian; they were developed in the United States for herding livestock on American ranches. Australian Shepherds are descended from Spanish dogs that were used for herding Merino sheep. Aussies can be trained to perform tricks. Aussies are often used by police for narcotics detection. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
