    This handsome boy is Roscoe, an 11 month old Pit Bull Terrier who weighs 52 pounds. Roscoe was on his own in the subzero temperatures and starving when he wandered up to the door of the right house in a rural area. Every rib was sticking out and his paws were raw and bleeding from ice and exposure. The folks who lived there welcomed him into their home and nursed him back to health. Roscoe is now ready to find his forever home. Roscoe is a smart puppy. He chose the right humans to ask for help and learns quickly. In a short time he learned basic obedience commands, is kennel trained, and potty trained. Roscoe is good with other dogs his size ...

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ms. Sadie has returned from foster and has put on a couple of pounds. She will go to the vet on Tuesday and be spayed and will then be ready for a forever home. She is a 5 year old Pit. We have discovered she is not fond of small dogs. We believe she would do fine with a bigger dog. After getting her butt kicked by cats she has decided she is not fond of them. Due to her lack of food in her past - she does eat anything in site. She will counter surf if there is anything on it for her to eat. We believe this can be broken as soon as she realizes that food will be a regular thing in her life. She is great with kids and has done fantastic ... (Read More)with housebreaking. She has not had an easy life but things can only get better from here. Her foster mom said she was excellent. She does need some work on walking on a leash. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    NOAH is an affectionate and energetic boy who loves to play with Casey, who is at the same foster home. He is a 70-lb. dog, 6-year-old pit bull terrier. Noah has been waiting a long time and it is so unfair that he does not have a family or person of his own. Noah has not been around kids so he needs to find an adult-only home. He should be the only male dog, but he is very good with most females, even bossy ones! Can you provide a safe and loving home for this deserving boy?

    Rocky is a 3 year old, 48 pound American Pit Bull Terrier. With a beautiful chocolate brown coat, white chest, and a dazzling set of peepers that will warm your heart'|Rocky is all that a family could want in a canine companion. Rocky came into rescue through no fault of his own. He was owner surrendered because someone in his home was allergic to him.

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.
