"Buckaroo"
Buckaroo (Protege #286) is a very sweet 13-14 week old Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) puppy. He is up to date on all of his shots and will be neutered before he goes to live with his forever home. Buckaroo is not completely potty trained, but is working on it and doing well. His foster mom limits his water intake and watches him very carefully around the house, letting him outside about once an hour when she is home. Doing this, Buckaroo has only had two accidents in the house (both pee) and has otherwise gone outside! Buckaroo is also good in a crate. He sleeps in a crate through the night and also when his foster mom is gone during the day. So far Buckaroo has not had any overnight accidents.

Buckaroo loves all people and dogs. He gets along very well with both of his foster brothers and other dogs he has met. Buckaroo loves to play and plays rough with other dogs (nips their legs and faces in a friendly "play with me" way) but listens when they tell him to stop. Because Buckaroo is a young puppy his foster mom monitors him around the house and never lets him out of her site. Buckaroo LOVES toys and wants to play with EVERYTHING. He is still learning the difference between toys and not toys (clothing, shoes, towels etc). Buckaroo loves to play tug and chase balls. He will be a very high drive dog and should go to an active home where he will be kept busy. Buckaroo would love to have a job like herding, frisbee, agility or flyball but would also do well in a home where he was able to go to the dog park or on daily walks.

Buckaroo loves people and wants to please. He is very food and toy motivated and will be fairly easy to train. Buckaroo is being fostered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

"Caesar"
Meet Caesar (Protege #0280)! This handsome blue merle male Australian Shepherd is about 2 years old and weighs approximately 50 pounds. Caesar came to Protégé with heart worms and has recently finished his treatment! Caesar is a very loving dog and is almost always around his people. He loves to snuggle. At night Caesar sleeps in his kennel and is very quiet.

Caesar will play with toys but mostly he loves bones and rawhides. He and his foster brother will lie around and chew bones for hours. After a little wrestling, they are both ready for a nap! He is very easy to take care of if given the opportunity to entertain himself. Caesar gets along great with other dogs. His ideal home would probably include canine brothers or sisters. He also gets along with cats but is very interested in them. He has not attacked or shown any aggression towards his foster parents’ cats, but will stare and whimper a little at the cats if he wants to see them. We have not had him around children, but believe he would be ok as long as he was trained not to jump up on them.

Caesar is very smart, he picks up on energy levels and basic commands very well. So far, he hasn’t had much trick-training while in foster care because of his heartworms, but his foster parents can tell he will not have trouble picking up basic commands and routines. When he came to Protégé he was not leash trained and we think he may have been an outside dog. After a short time he picked up housebreaking and now goes potty on a leash.

Caesar has been a very good foster and is one of a kind. He is neutered, current on all vet work and is currently living in Iowa City, Iowa and awaiting his forever home!

"Bailey"
Bailey (Protege #0262) is a beautiful 5 year old blue merle Sheltie. At first glance she would appear to be a preppy girl, but she is not opposed to finding some mud to walk through or grass to roll in first thing in the morning. She tolerates bathing and brushing well because of her tomboy ways.

She had many doggy friends at her old home and gets along well with the other dog in our household, but hasn't quite figured out if she wants to play with her. She will play "tag" with the humans at home; tapping us with her nose or pawing us, doing the play bow and then running away. She tolerates the cats in the household but would prefer that they didn't exist in her forever home.

Bailey's come to us from a breeder where she spent all her time outdoors. Bailey has had many challenges to over come, the biggest being how to potty outside on a leash. She was used to having full range of her outdoor home and hadn't ever been on a leash before. We have found that she does well off leash and will potty on a leash but it takes time. A fenced in yard would be nice but is not a requirement for her.

We believe that the indoor dog lifestyle suites her well. She has learned to kennel and we often find her in it napping during the day. We are working on basic obedience and for not being on a leash before, she has excellent leash manners. She sticks right to our side always checking in with us when on walks. She LOVES food and is a quick study because of her food motivation and eagerness to please. If you are going to the kitchen she is sure to be by your side. She is a little shy at first when meeting new people but warms up very quickly. She has done well with all people and children so far, but is startled easily by loud noises and quick movements.

Bailey is up to date on vaccinations, tested negative for heartworm, and she has been spayed. She is currently being fostered in Cedar Rapids,Iowa.

"Fae"
Fae (Protege #0264) is a 2-1/2 year old Sheltie. She is up to date on all of her shots and is spayed. Fae came to our rescue with three of her sisters. They were outside breeding dogs, and although loved, they could use some extra TLC. Fae is a black-tri, but due to the sun her coat has been faded to a rusty brown. With some good food, brushing and an indoor home, Fae's coat should be restored to new in less than a year! Fae weighs about 15 lbs - a tiny little fluff ball!

She LOVES humans and other dogs, but is initially shy when introduced. Fae has been in her foster home for about three weeks and is really starting to warm up to her foster mom and the other dogs in the house. Just this week Fae worked her magic and got her foster brother Stitch to play chase with her. Although she's never been inside, Fae seems mostly housebroken. She has only had two accidents in the house and has great bladder control. She is completely crate trained and is very quiet in the crate.

Fae sleeps in bed with her foster mom to help her become more comfortable with her new inside surroundings, but she would also be fine sleeping on the floor or in a different room. She is very easy to please. Although very shy, it is apparent that Fae wants to be loved and will warm up more and more with time. From her first day at her foster mom's house Fae would follow her (and other housemates) from room to room -- but never get in the way. At first Fae would follow a human into a room and then hide in the corner ... but now Fae is mostly over the hiding and just comes into the room and lays down. Fae loves attention and loves to be petted. She is a great lap dog and loves snuggling, but she is also fine laying on the floor. She likes dog beds best, but doesn't seem to mind laying on the hard wood or laminate floors either. Overall Fae is a very sweet, shy little dog who needs a patient loving home to bring her out of her shell.

Fae is being housed temporarily in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Buddy is a 5 year old Male peke that came into rescue with his friend Boz. He is a very shy boy and seems to find comfort when unsure of things by running into a crate. I believe he has lived a caged life. But seems to look for guidance from his playmate Boz. He came into rescue with an eye injury it has healed up well. He is up to date on his shots and altered. He needs a patient owner that will give him time to adjust to a new routine and to learn that it is ok to allow others to love him. Would like to adopt him and Boz into a home together.
