Rescue Me ID: 16-09-14-00080George (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hello, meet George. When our neighbors moved and left George behind we took him in. We've known him for several years as he has lived next door to us. I believe he is about 8 years old. A pit/boxer mix. He has no idea he is a pitbull mix :-) His temperment is awesome. He is very sweet and gentle. He is great with other animals....although puppies scare him and cats terrify him. LOL! I've never known this dog to be aggressive with anyone or any animal. When the neighbors had him, and in the 6 months we've had him, he has never been anything but sweet to us and other animals. (My mother's Chihuahua likes to walk on his back.) What we know ... (Read More)about his health: He is blind. It appears he can see shadows when its light out. But otherwise he is blind and needs guidance quite often. I know he had colitis when they first got him but I believe he has outgrown it. However, he has always worn a muzzle that covers his entire snout....one in which he cannot smash outdoor gross things in his mask in order to eat them. I know the owners were worried that if he ate something he shouldn't, it might flare up his colitis again. He hates his nails being clipped I have found....he just gets scared, never offered to be aggressive in any way. We would love to keep George but we have 2 cats, 5 horses, and my mother lives next door with 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am also her full time caretaker and I don't have the time to devote to him like he deserves. He would make a great dog for someone who loves to give attention and has the patience to teach him how to navigate their home and property. As I said, he is great with kids and other animals, so a home with any of these is fine. Please give George a forever home. He is so sweet and is looking, so to speak, for someone he can love too.

    Morgan is a sweet loving 4yr old boy looking for a family with older kids or adults to love. He does have anxiety over multiple things mainly being left alone for long periods of time and other dogs. When he gets anxious or over stimulated be becomes very rough a little aggressive. He has not bitten anyone. I have been working with him for awhile now on this when I can and see that this is a behavior that can improve. Unfortunately due to my work schedule I am unable to provide the time he needs and deserves.

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)

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

    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. Rocky is completely house trained and loves to romp around, flipping toys, playing tug, chasing balls, and even snuggling on the couch, but what Rocky enjoys the most are belly rubs and ear massages. 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.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year.
