He just isn't good with other dogs.We suspect that the previous owner tried to fight him. This isn't the dogs fault, just the owner who is now in prison. Help save this sweet boy. He is young and loves to cuddle and play.

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......

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Squirt is a red nose pit. He's a good dog and currently living with 3 adults, no kids, and a 13 yr. old male. So I'm not sure how he would react around young kids who are very active. It took a while but these two males get along fine. Squirt does get somewhat dominant at times. Has average energy but does not get walked or played with enough. Currently has an issue with his left ear. He has never been abused. Only loved and cared for. I just can't afford him any longer.

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-15-00116Farley (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Farley is looking for his forever home with someone who loves to go for long walks and hikes (and has the time and patience to help him reach his full potential at walking politely on a leash without pulling), someone who is consistent, patient, has lots of energy, and also someone who loves to cuddle and give affection! If you have these qualities, Farley has so much potential to be your extremely loyal and loving companion. We originally fostered Farley from Midwest Animal Rescue while we were living in Minneapolis. While we were fostering him, he had a health condition which cost the rescue organization vet bills and medication bills. ... (Read More)After fostering him for over a year, the organization told us that they could no longer afford to foster him out, and that if we did not want to adopt him, he would have to be euthanized. We had grown to love Farley and could not let him be euthanized, although we had not intended to adopt a dog at the time. So Farley became officially ours in 2010. Since then, we have moved to Iowa City and we've had a daughter who is currently 18 months old. Farley no longer has a health issue - we later discovered that his issues had been due to a tick born illness, which we were able to eliminate with the correct medication. Farley is currently a healthy, approximately 7 year old male (Midwest Animal Rescue was unsure of his exact age). We believe that he is an american staffordshire terrier possibly mixed with a spaniel of some sort. We have never seen Farley be aggressive toward a human. In fact, it's been the opposite. Farley loves adult attention from anyone willing to pet him or give him a belly rub. He loves to cuddle and be near his human. He will excitedly greet you (or anyone coming into your home) at the door. We have one other dog in our home, and with the exception of one unfortunate incident right after we adopted the second dog, our dogs have gotten along great since. Farley has never attacked another dog, and he has been around a few other family members dogs. He does, however, bark and growl aggressively at dogs through the window and also when we go on walks. Farley has quite a bit of nervous energy and seems to be an anxious guy. He does bark a lot through our window at passers by. He loves to leave the house for car rides, but will not sit down, even during a several hours long car ride. He stands the entire time and paces excitedly. We have found that lots of exercise and consistent training and discipline can help with Farley's high energy, barking, and anxious behaviors. Sadly, we have come to the conclusion that with a small child of our own now, we do not have the time to devote to Farley that he desperately needs and deserves. The other reason for our finding Farley a new home is that, although Farley has always adored constant adult attention, he sometimes seems a bit annoyed by our curious 18 month old, who loves to follow him around and 'bother' him. He has given her a couple of unhappy grunts and we would hate for this to become an issue. We think Farley would do best in a house with no small children, although older kids should be absolutely fine. We also think that Farley would do best in a home with no cats. (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.
