Rescue Me ID: 17-06-23-00144Coco (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! I am Coco - 2-3 years old. These really nice people rescued me from a universal posting and took me home. Unfortunately one of the other dogs in that family wouldn't accept me so I never really got a chance to make friends with the other 2. Some trainers came out and tried to convince that dog but it didn't work. So I am here at PPA Pals. I LOVE people, chasing balls and running around. I am FULL of energy! I am so full of energy that I don't really know how to be with other dogs - the trainers let me try with another dog in the home. I wasn't sure how to interpret her body language and I didn't understand how to respond. They love me ... (Read More)here at PPA Pals, except I am a bit of a fence jumper so I can't get as much exercise as I need here. I really need a home environment of my own to get lots of exercise and quality time with someone to work with me. I love to learn, and will try very hard to please my new family. I am good with kids about 12 and up. I may be fine with smaller ones - I just don't remember if I've been around them. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-11-00163Dierks (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Wanna talk about cute - then we can talk about Dierks. He is about 5 months old and is super social and loves to play. He is well on his way to being housebroken and we don't think it will take much to finish him off. He gets along great with other dogs and kids - not sure on cats. We believe he is a Lab/Pit mix. Very smart puppy. This baby is looking for his very own family to spend the rest of his life. He is neutered, current on his shots, has been wormed and is micro-chipped. He will be available to go home as of 6/15/17. If you are interested in Dierks, please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an ... (Read More)adoption application then come and visit him. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-09-00172Polly (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Pet of the Week is Ms. Polly. She is only about a year old. She is the sweetest Red Nose Pit you will ever meet. She came to us with a litter of babies - has raised them - and has now been spayed, current on all shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped - so she is ready to go home. She has a great personality - she still plays rough so would probably be best for kids over 8 or 10. She weighs around 60 lbs. She is housebroken. We have not cat tested her so no idea how she is with cats. She does good with other dogs if properly introduced. Come on out and visit Ms. Polly and see if she can be your next family member.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This precious baby is named Uno. He got that name as being the only surviving puppy out of a litter that mom had no clue how to take care of. His date of birth is 4/9/17. He is not yet old enough to go to his forever home. He needs lots of one on one attention. He is super sweet and loves to snuggle up. He is a lab/pit mix more than likely. He is just starting on his puppy shots but has been wormed. He is still too young (and too little) to neuter. He should be able to go home the second week of June. If interested please go to our website and fill out an adoption application - www.patriotsforpets.com If we find a suitable adopter ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Pebbles - she is just under a year old and is probably a Pit mixed with something smaller. She isn't a very big girl. She is super friendly and wants to be everyone's friend. Unfortunatly at her young age she came into us with a litter of puppies that she refused to take care of. We made the decision to pull her remaining babies and hand feed them and just wean her from them to keep her from continuing to reject them. She is a super sweet girl - just very young to have the responsibility of puppies. She is spayed, heartworm negative, current on her shots, wormed and micro-chipped. She loves kids and around here she hasn't met ... (Read More)a stranger. (Less)

    This is Elly Mae and her family. She came into us with 8 babies in tow. She is such a sweet girl at just about a year old. She is a small girl and does have a little Pit in her but not sure what else is in there. She unfortunately is heartworm positive and will start treatment in the next week or so.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Ruby has been through multiple owners, and me and my roommate recently adopted her last year. I am leaving my current place of residence, and no longer have the funds to support her nor can I find a place that will allow her due to her breed. Ruby is the sweetest girl in the world, her only flaw is that she absolutely does not get along with any other animals. Please contact me if you can help.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sadie just turned two years old. She is reported to be a Pit/Boxer mix. She has a beautiful Brindle coloring. When she was surrendered she was very gentle with her human kid and a very loving dog. She gets along good with other dogs. She absolutely can not live in a home with cats - she killed a couple of adult cats and a litter of kittens and that is what landed her here at the shelter. Her prior owner reports she is housebroken and we see no reason to doubt that. She is spayed, she has been brought current on all of her shots and she is now micro-chipped. We had her heartworm tested and she is negative. Her adoption fee is ... (Read More)$150.00. If you are interested in her you need to fill out an adoption application at www.patriotsforpets.com and then come visit her.

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.
