|Rescue Me ID: 17-02-17-00480Olaf (male)|
Olaf is a BIG (70 lb) 9 month old male English Cream Goldendoodle who's had major health issues and some behavioral challenges. He's been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and serious allergies, so his environment and food must be carefully controlled, and he needs good and frequent veterinary care. He also must take steroid medication and can only eat special food (and no other treats) or he becomes very ill. He loves to be outside, yet he can't be left outside unattended since he'll chew on weeds and rocks that could make him ill. So... he's been primarily an inside dog. Olaf LOVES to be with people, including children, and wants to be right by their side, yet he plays rough so is prone to unintentionally hurt young children or smaller dogs when he gets excited. It's probably best if his new family doesn't have small children (maybe under age 8 years old?) since he's likely to knock them over when he's playing. He's a high energy and at times anxious dog who needs an owner who will take him for walks or throw the ball outside at LEAST 2x a day to allow him to play hard and expend his energy (or his anxiety and behaviors increase). He needs a new owner who's able to afford his medical care, special food, and medicine and be committed to continuing to work on behaviors. He's had a basic obedience training and is now in intermediate obedience training, but he's inconsistent in following commands and demonstrates some challenging behaviors so needs an owner who will continue to work on this training, possibly with a trainer. He's often a sweet boy but can also be strong-willed. He's begun to ring a bell to let us know he wants outside, but he has occasional urinary accidents if we're not watching for his occasionally subtle cues or if he's excited, so he's not allowed on the carpeted areas of our home, and he's learned to stay out of those rooms. Though Goldendoodles are supposed to be no or low-shed, Olaf is a VERY heavy shedder. We love this big boy who's truly a BEAUTIFUL dog, but we just can't keep up with his needs anymore. If you have the time and resources to invest in Olaf, please call for more information. (Less)

I love to play. I'm a rascal. I especially like to play with girls. I am quite the large boy too. I need a family that has a high fenced yard or can take me for walks and throw me ball once or twice. I was rescued AT THE LAST MOMENT from a 700-dog high-kill shelter. So I'm one lucky pup to be here in Iowa--breathing! But I need L O V E! I want to give you L O V E! Want to meet?

LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT THIS FACE! HOW CAN YOU NOT! I am THE dog movies were made off! I am your family-loving, all loving dog! I love to eat. So can you imagine how I SUFFERED when I was abandoned in a rock pit without food and water to fend for myself! I almost died but some nice people helped me out--feeding me ocassionally but then they were going to take me to a high-kill shelter and finally I was rescued to safety. But I need you! I need a home! I need a family. I am the very best 'ALLAROUND' buddy. I am being treated for heartworms but this is not contagious to humans or other 4 legged friends. And my rescue pays for the treatment. Come on! Give me a chance...I will bring you lots and lots and lots of love and joy! I will be your very best buddy! Contact Laz at 319-471-0752 (via text) if you want to meet me. Bring your heart! (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Golden Retriever in Iowa|
Golden Retriever Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. The Golden Retriever is a gundog that loves the water. Originally bred for hunting, Goldens make wonderful family pets. Golden Retrievers are very sweet, patient, gentle, and excellent with children. Goldens are eager to please and respond very well to obedience training. Goldens make good watchdogs but are far too friendly with everyone, from strangers to other dogs, to be used as guard dogs. Goldens need human companionship. They can get into trouble if neglected. This breed is suitable for homes with yards, and needs plenty of brisk daily exercise.
