Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Waylen is in desperate need of a forever home fast. He is currently in the ARL shelter in des Moines Iowa.... He belonged to my children and exhusband and they were no longer able to keep him due to where they live. He is generally a very sweet dog but does not like stressful aggressive situations. He has bitten me but as I said it was a stressful aggressive situation and he protected his master. ARL contacted me this morning as he is not reacting well to the shelter. He is very scared and showing fearful signs toward the shelter staff. He won't let them near him and they are unable to place him for adoption due to his behavior. He needs ... (Read More)someone calm who understands the nature of the bread and has some knowledge in training them. He is great with my kids and got along well with my silky and chihuahua was never around dogs other than them. He does enjoy chasing cats but to my knowledge never hurt one. He is in desperate need of help as ARL is not a no kill facility. They have said they will release him to me no charge. I just need someone willing to give this guy another chance. Please help! He doesn't have long! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-20-00234Major (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

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

    Major is an incredibly shy and fearful dog. He will need some confidence boosting as he is very very timid. We aren't sure what happened to him in his previous homes, he has been through a few. When he warms up to someone you have a friend for life.....he is as sweet as can be and doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. Everyone who meets him falls in love with him.....the right people just haven't come along yet......

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.

    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year.
