*Adoption Process starts with an Online Adoption Application you can find at

Eligible for the Golden Paws Program (adoptors 60 yrs and older adopting a dog 7 yrs and older get $50 off the adoption fee noted below)

My name is Jorja. I am 8 years old and weigh 17 pounds. I need a new home because I don't care for the toddler and other dog that I live with. I am being fostered in Des Moines, IA.

Don't let my age fool you, I am a puppy at heart. I am a high energy dog that loves to play ball in the back yard.
I love to jump up and sleep on the couch or sit on someone's lap.
I like to be invited into bed, but prefer to sleep on top of the covers, close to your head.
I know how to sit, shake, and LOVE to high five! If you tell me "I want to catch a fish" I will jump into your arms.
I love to play out in the yard and sit on your lap.
I have a squeak toy that I call my "baby" I feel accomplished once all of the squeakers are dead. I will still love my baby and carry it around and burry it in the covers even though it no longer squeaks. I recently got a new baby it still has some squeakers!
I need lots of play time to burn off my energy, and lots of love. I enjoy being the center of attention.

I would rather not be in a home small children or other dogs (I tend to be alpha over other dogs after a period of time under the same roof).

Here's a little more about me:

Housetrained? Yes, I will alert you by sitting at the door when I need to go outside. If that doesn't work, I will jump on to your chest and stare at you in the eyes until you acknowledge my need to go outside.
Leash-trained? Yes
Rides well in car? I get a little excited at first, but once we are on the road I love to lay down on the seat and fall asleep in the sun.
Good with other dogs? Not full time roommates please
Good with cats? I've lived with a cat in the past and we never got in each others way.
Good with young children? I prefer older children as they understand that I sometimes need my space.
Good with strangers? I love greeting people with kisses, sometimes I get a little excited and want to jump in their laps.
Shy or confident? I'm a confident
Barks? I'm not a barker, but I howl with excitement and give kisses when you tell me you love me or serenade me with harmonica and guitar.
Apartment qualified? I've lived in an apartment and I did just fine.
Any Special needs or Health Issues? I have allergies which I take one pred once a day and on a grain free diet.
Adoption Fee: $200.00

All our dogs are spayed/neutered (if six months and older), up to date on rabies and distemper, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Other medical needs diagnosed while in foster care are also treated prior to adoption.

MABTR requires a fenced in area from families who live in house, however we DO adopt to apartment complexes and communities where fences are not permitted due to leases and covenants. In these cases a leash law must be enforced.

MABTR only adopts to families residing in NE, CO, MO, KS, IA, WY, SD, ND, ID, UT, MT, AR, and MN due to transport abilities.

If you are Interested in Adoption please complete our online adoption application. We will respond back to you within 24 hours of receiving your application. Adoption application at
