    Rocky needs YOU!!! Rocky was saved from a very high-kill shelter with over 700 dogs. He spent over 60 day in that hell-hole and was saved the day he was going to be killed. He is a good boy. He loves to play with other dogs and is a PEOPLE LOVER. Rocky is mellow and yet athletic. He loves to cuddle. He will jump a fence if he sees a cat or anything that resembles a cat--so he does need a non-cat home as well as a home that is experience with 'jumpers' (or leapers). Otherwise, he is a perfect companion and is looking for love. He is FULLY VETTED and is neutered. If you can give him a wonderful home please TEXT me 319-471-0752. ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Help Please? My name is Seamus, I am a 2 1/2 year old pit(mix?) who is looking for a forever home filled with love. I was rescued from a dog fighting ring in Texas where I was used as a bait dog when I was six months old. I made a long road trip to Iowa where I lived with a nice lady who got too busy to take care of me, and I was taken in by a temporary foster family. The foster family that took me in already had 2 cats, and I really don't like cats, well I do think they are delicious, so this is not a good situation for me to be in. I am really slow to warm up to other dogs, and without a slow and proper introduction I can become very ... (Read More)scared. I love every person I meet, I get super excited to meet new people, and want to lick them all over. Will you help me find a loving home where I can cuddle with nice people? Recap: Best as only dog in home, but would warm up to another dog. No cats. Best in a home with kids over 6 years old. 2 1/2 years old, Neutered, up to date on shots. Has Kennel, toys, harness for walking, lead, and food. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-04-10-00247Gracie (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gracie was rescued from a high-kill shelter. She is the dog that dog trainers would use to see test another dog's temperament. Why? Because Gracie loves everyone and everything. We say, 'if he don't get along with Gracie, he don't get along!' Gracie thinks she is a lap dog. She has all the playfulness of a puppy, yet is intent on cuddling and basically SLEEPING on top of you. She has no idea of her body size and weight :) She needs a little bit of training on leash walking but otherwise, she is not destructive and knows how to immediately blend into a household. She is kennel trained and is very patient and looking to please. She ... (Read More)desperately needs a family of her own. A family that will make her their baby. When she was first rescued from the shelter she had another name, but we had to change it to Grace--because we feel that anyone that owns her is being graced. She is not a digger or a fence jumper. She waits her turn in the pack. Can you open your heart to Gracie? (Less)

    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.

He truly loves to be around people and will be just as inclined to sit at your feet and ... (Read More)chew away at a bone as to cruise around with you in your car (he loves car rides but tends to doze off!). Rocky needs to be the only dog in his home. He is curious, but obedient due to his training with Robin Moulds at Alpha House K9's. Rocky knows his basic obedience commands and walks well on a leash. He truly has shown to have a great temperament and beautiful soul through all his trainings. Rocky would do best in a home with a fenced yard where he can run free and explore the world with a family that will love him forever. Rocky is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm tested, and micro chipped.

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.
