Rescue Me ID: 16-01-07-00601Solo (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Solo is an almost 2 year old, 45 pound, happy mutt. He is a quiet, extremely timid guy who loves other dogs of all sizes and ignores cats. Solo loves to cuddle with his people and bonds strongly with them. He is easily trained. Solo walks well on a leash but is not a fan of car rides. Solo has been DNA tested. He is part American Staffordshire Terrier, Alaskan Malamute, Labrador Retriever, Australian Shepherd, and Golden Retriever. What an interesting mix. Solo has some specific requests for his new home. He needs a fenced yard to run and play in, he really enjoys sniffing around his yard. Solo also needs another playful dog in his home. ... (Read More)He is very timid and another dog gives him a role model and a playmate. Solo would like there to be no small children in his home. This request isn't because Solo is bad with children, his foster home has small children. It's because small children scare him. Small children make loud noises and fast movements, these tend to send Solo looking for a place to hide. He would like a quieter home where he can be comfortable. Solo is housetrained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped. For more information about Solo you can contact Roxanne at or call 319-929-6657.

Rescue Me ID: 15-12-05-00569Vinny (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Vince is believed to be a **Cane Corso** and Mastiff type but Rescueme does not have that option. Hes a big boy.... not quite as big as a mastiff but just as powerful. Vinny has not had an easy start to life.... He is a rowdy, mouthy pup that does not know his size, he has a big bark that we have determined means almost nothing... as hes been very friendly with every new buddy he gets to play with... Even our 500# Pig Highway!!This guys first home abandoned him in the middle of a field, they chained him there and left him there to starve to death and he almost did. lucky for him he was found and taken to a rescue center. Now that he has meat ... (Read More)on his big bones he is ready for a loving home. As ive stated he has now clue as to how big he is and he puts his mouth on everything, we have been working on redirecting this to teach him that he is never allowed to put his moth on people. I don't believe he would ever intentionally hurt anyone or thing BUT we can call him accident prone at this time, it doesn't help that hes so darn charming with his naughty behavior either. If you are looking for a new addition to your family and you can help this boy become a delightful member of society please request an adoption application you can also get one off our website **Bully experience is a must, no renters, prefer large fenced in yard, will be very dog selective** (Less)
