Rescue Me ID: 15-06-27-00244Marley (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    We want to introduce you to Marley. He is about 10 months old and it is believed he is a Lab/Pit mix. He is not yet neutered but will be next week. Unfortunately we have little to no information on Marley. His owner moved out of a rental house and left Marley behind. On information obtained through the landlord we believe he may be housetrained. We do know he gets along with other dogs and he is very friendly. He is still very much a puppy with lots of puppy energy. In the next few days we will do some work with him and hopefully by the weekend when he can have visitors we will know more about him.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-25-00207Noah (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    NOAH is an affectionate and energetic boy who loves to play with Casey, who is at the same foster home. He is a 70-lb. dog, 6-year-old pit bull terrier. Noah has been waiting a long time and it is so unfair that he does not have a family or person of his own. Noah has not been around kids so he needs to find an adult-only home. He should be the only male dog, but he is very good with most females, even bossy ones! Can you provide a safe and loving home for this deserving boy?

    I'm so glad you stopped to read my profile! My name is Jeffy and I'm amazing, if I do say so myself. I'm a ball of energy and I love to entertain. I guarantee that I will make you laugh out loud on a regular basis. I'm pretty good at snuggling too. I like other dogs and don't mind an occasional cat either. So as you can see, I'm pretty much the best dog ever! I think you should meet me to see for yourself. Let Dogs Forever know if you'd like to adopt me. Thanks!

Duke is fully potty trained and ready for a home with lots of time to give him. Such a sweet loving boy.

    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%BD'%BD|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 ... (Read More)and chew away at a bone as to cruise around with you in your car (he loves car rides but tends to doze off!). Although Rocky will need to be an only dog, he seems to be fine with cats. 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%BD'%BD|a world he has not had a chance to be in with a family that will love him forever. Rocky is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm tested, and micro chipped.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Nyssa is approximately 7 yrs old and our best guess is a Pit Mix. You can tell she has had many litters of pups and a rough life as well. She was skin and bones when we received her and has opened up amazingly to other dogs while being fostered. Cats are ok. She loves people and kids and is a great cuddler! She is kennel trained but would much rather prefer a bed next to yours! She is house trained and does well outside a kennel without supervision in the home. She is spayed, utd on shots and ready for her furever home!!!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    **We are just networking Jax for owner** Jax is in need of a new home. He is almost 1 yr old, pit mix, and will need an active person to help run off his energy. He is fully vetted and neutered. He loves other dogs, not sure on cats. Due to his energy level, older children or no children would be best. He is a sweetheart and needs someone that can teach him correct behaviors as he gets older. He is house broken.

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. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
