Rescue Me ID: 17-09-15-00003Red (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I have a red nose pit who I have cared for intermittently for years, when his so-called owner was in rehab or sober living. Now he's abandoned the dog. Red and I love each other. But I do not want a dog. My children are grown, and I want my freedom. I watched YouTube videos, and I'm proud of how well I trained him, though it could always be more. He gets a lot of compliments on his obedience. He is unreliable around other dogs. Fine on leash, just don't want dogs to run up on him, or vice versa. He lives with my cat, and I feel very comfortable with that. I am in the process of introducing a muzzle, so I can take him places--walk down the ... (Read More)street!--with less fear of a loose dog running up on us. (Though sometimes it's fine.) I have dog-free fields near me where he runs every day. He's a watch-dog, probably what would be called 'dominant' in his disposition, but I am his alpha. I don't anymore let him run up barking at people coming in the door--though my housemates got used to getting bum-rushed by the pit bull! Now he does not 'say hi', unless I give permission. I make the rules clear, and he abides them. But I cultivated that respect from him, and he would probably need what you'd call an experienced owner. They would get a balanced, well trained, loving and deeply-bonded companion in return. He's 5 1/2, finally got agreement from his so-called owner to get him neutered within the last 5 months (before he stopped communicating with me). Because he is so bonded with me, I would do anything to help him transition to a new home, including taking it slowly, and paying for obedience classes (to facilitate connection). (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This beautiful girl is Delilah - she is about 17 months old and unfortunately she has already had a litter of pups. She is out in a foster home right now and we still have to complete her vetting but will be ready for a home in a week or so. She seems to do fine with male dogs (have not tried female dogs) but she is pretty bossy for her age. She also bonds VERY quickly to her human so that is something that needs to be taken into consideration when adopting her. Her foster mom is one of the volunteers here at the shelter and she just loves Holly. Once she has been with Holly for a few days she will give us an update on her ... (Read More)personality and all the good stuff like housebreaking, how she is with cats and small kids. She is a Blue Nose Pit so make sure if you are interested in her you don't live in an area with any bans. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Iowa
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
