"Kamy"
Looking to meet a pretty, young girl for Valentine's Day? Look no further than our own Kamy (#0315)! She's an adorable red-tri pup who is only 5 months old and weights 22 pounds. She came to us from a shelter where she was very stressed out and shutdown. Since she's been with us, Kamy has been a very happy and fun little girl. She is a typical Velco Aussie who loves to stick with her person. Like any young dog, she loves to run and play and would love to have a family that is willing to give her the opportunity to do both. She does like to play with other dogs, but she can be a bit bossy so her new family will need to keep an eye on her when she plays with new dogs. After play time, Kamy likes to cuddle on couch and settles in nicely to relax and watch TV. When it's time for bed, she happily sleeps on a doggie pillow next to her foster mom's bed. After spending time in the shelter, she thinks she's living the life of luxury in her very own soft bed.

Kamy is a young dog and still has to learn some manners, but she very much wants to please. She already knows sit and shake. We are working on her housebreaking, but as smart as she is, we don't think it will take her long to figure it out. Kamy enjoys chasing kitties, but she is learning to leave them alone. We recommend that she go to a family that either has no cats or very dog-savvy cats. Kamy has a very nice recall and walks nicely on a leash. If you think Kamy might be the dog for you, contact us soon. She's hoping to be somebody's very special Valentine.

Kamy is current on her vaccinations and is spayed. She is currently being fostered in Ottumwa, Iowa.

If you might be interested in learning more about this dog, please email info@protegerescue.org. While we welcome your questions, all adopters are required to complete a Protege Adoption Application before being considered to adopt a Protege dog; our adoption fee is $250.

"Korra"
Meet Korra (#0306)! This lively little red-tri Australian Shepherd is such a happy little girl! She is 1 year old and weighs about 30 pounds; she could probably stand to gain a few pounds. Korra has plenty of energy! She would love a home with an active lifestyle and a famiy who could take her for walks and let her run in the yard daily.

She loves bones and toys, but mostly she just wants to be around her people. If given the chance, Korra would rather lay in the same room as her people than wander off by herself.

Korra loves other dogs and is not afraid to play with someone bigger than herself. She and her foster brother love wrestling and competing for bones. Korra does not mind cats, she is currently living with two and has had no issues with them. She is interested in them but it is not hard to get her attention away from the cats if needed.

At first, Korra was a little shy and reserved. She may have had trust issues in the past with previous owners, but she has come to love her foster parents. She took some time to get used to her new surroundings, as with any dog, and she was a bit reserved about going in the front door the first couple times but soon got over that. She stayed with another foster home over the holidays and did not have any trouble adjusting to that short-term situation -- loved playing with toys and with the resident dog there.

Korra is very intelligent and easy to train.

She is up to date on vacinations and has been spayed. She is currently in Iowa City awaiting her forever home. Here is a video of Korra playing with a friend: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZbNJ0T0u4E

"Addyson"
Meet Addyson (Protege #0282)! She will be 8 years young in September, though we never would have guessed that to be her age! She has very unique eyes with areas of blue that give her a "googly eye" effect. She is a lovely red merle and weighs roughly 45 pounds. Her eyes are a great feature, but her bubbly personality is even better! Once she had a few days of adjustment, she started playing ball and frisbee and she loves to give us kisses. She thoroughly enjoys being petted and if we stop, she will wiggle her head under our arms until we start again. She is a velcro dog and has decided that her foster mom cannot go far before she has to come looking for her.

Addy's previous home loved her very much and had for 7 years. Recently they welcomed a young baby into the household and as exciting as that was for the family, it was too exciting for Addyson. She started behaving in ways that Aussies often do by trying to herd and nip at the baby and other young children. As much as they loved Addy they asked for Proteges help in re-homing her. A requirement for adopting Addyson would be a home without babies or young children.

Addyson gets along well with other pets, including cats. Her previous home mentioned that she had a "motherly instinct" and she has demonstrated this when her foster home got a new kitten. She will clean and lick the kitten and allow the kitten to crawl all over her and cuddle up to her. She can be possessive of toys and food if the other dog in the foster home tries to take them from her, and so meal and play times are always supervised and have had no issues. She does well on car rides, though she does get a little nervous, and she enjoys walks.

The best part about having an older dog is that she already knows a lot! She knows sit, stay, shake, and outside which indicates that it is potty time. Addy had never been kenneled and so her foster home took a leap of faith in allowing her free range of the home and she has proven to be an all star! She sleeps on a dog bed in her foster parents room at night and during the day we expect that she spends it on the couch since the pillows are always rearranged when we come home! She is completely housebroken and can easily go a work day. The best part is that she is way past the puppy chewing stage and so there is no need to worry about destruction, unless it is a stuffed toy!

Addyson is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, on heartworm and flea preventative and ready for her new forever home! She is currently being fostered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

"Rambo"
Rambo is a gorgeous white Lab that loves people and has a very gentle personality. He loves to run & romp, but does need some mannerisms on play. He is approximately 5 years old, neutered, UTD on vacc., and will be undergoing HW treatment.

Rambo has been chained the majority of his life and missed many opportunities to adjust to a more social life. His previous owner could no longer keep him so has rendered him for adoption. He knows sit and shake. He has been introduced with some boarding dogs in pens but it is not known how he will do one on one. He was adopted and brought back due to his inexperience with chickens. He may be best suited for a one dog family. He does wait until his ‘yardtime’ to take care of business, so housetraining should be a breeze.

Inquiries please contact heyjude01@juno.com.
