Dottie and her sister Kit were named after the sisters in the movie, "A Leage of Their Own" - a fictionalized account of when the two sisters join the first female professional baseball league and struggle to help it succeed amid their own growing rivalry
Before applying for a dog, please take a moment to review our Adoption Information & Procedures
Some of the dogs in our program are adopted before we get to know them. Some stay longer but require several weeks to show their character. Some dogs receive additional evaluations and training by professionals if needed.
We work hard to provide as much information as possible, but the process is not perfect. Our goal is to give the dogs the best chance to stay in their home for the rest of their lives so we are genuine regarding what we know about them. For MPR, quality of our placements takes precedence over a quick turnaround.
We do our very best to update the dogs' bios as quickly as we can. In some cases, dogs are adopted before we are able to revise their listing.
Please do not contact MPR via email or messenger to inquire about a dog’s personality and/or temperament, compatibility with other pets, etc. The volunteers in charge of replying to general requests are not the same as those handling and evaluating the dogs. They will not be able to answer your questions.
Missouri Pit Bull Rescue makes no express or implied warranty, representation or promise to the age, health, breed, habits, disposition, behaviors, obedience, or safety of the dogs in our program. Our assessments are subjective and based on information we receive when selecting the dogs for our program, as well as observations and reports from our volunteers and caretakers. Adopters understand that no one can predict how a dog will act or react under all circumstances and situations.
Adoption Fee: $400
Breed: Pit Bull
Age: 16+ weeks
Dottie was found as a stray along with her sister, Kit. These precious little girls fought hard against Parvo, and we weren’t sure if Dottie was going to make it. Miraculously, Dottie turned a corner in the 11th hour at the hospital and was released the next day to her foster home to continue her recovery. We knew that such a little fighter deserved our help in finding the best possible home. Kit has already found hers!
Dottie is such a tough little gal. At such a young age and only weighing 10 pounds, she kicked Parvo’s butt! Now Dottie has doubled her weight and continues to flourish. She’s up to date on all her vaccines and ready to find her people!
This sweet girl has a beautifully unique blue and brindle coat with a splash of white across her chest. She has a milk chocolate-colored nose and the cutest Dobby ears (Harry Potter reference 🤓) that she’ll eventually grow into.
Current Living Situation:
Dottie is fostered in a home with a medium-sized backyard that has a 6ft privacy fence. She lives with two adults, a male cat, and two pitties- one male and one female. Crate training is in progress. She stays in her crate overnight and when home alone. Foster mom says she’s not a huge fan of going inside, but a treat and some smooth jazz usually calm her down. 😊 Dottie’s favorite nights are when she gets to sleep in bed with her humans and snuggle all night long!
A typical puppy figuring things out. She’s a happy girl with a medium level of energy. After she goes on a walk or plays outside, she’s ready to come in for some snuggles or a good bone to chew. She is very food-driven and gets pumped for mealtimes!
This girl also loves bath time! Foster mom says she gets right in without hesitation and has even been known to sneak inside the shower when she doesn’t need a bath. Future water dog here!
Behavior with people:
Dottie gets along with everyone, though she seems to gravitate toward women. She is always excited to meet new friends and will need some training on proper greetings as she grows and matures.
Behavior with children:
Dottie has not been around kids, but we don’t have any doubts that she would get along with them.
Behavior with other dogs:
Dottie likes being a part of the pack at her foster home. Playtime and snuggles with her furry foster siblings are her favorite. She is submissive to the female dog and could possibly share a home with a compatible male who does not mind her puppy energy.
Behavior with other animals:
She enjoys chasing and wrestling with her kitty in her foster home! We can’t say how her behavior will change as she matures, but so far there have not been any issues.
While crate training is still in the works, Dottie is mostly potty trained and has not had any accidents inside the house. She has also mastered “sit” and is eager to learn more and please her people. A treat goes a long way for this girl when it comes to training.
Dottie’s sweet face and kind soul is what will get you. Her foster mom says that Dottie knows when you are having a bad day and will snuggle in the crook of your neck to make you feel better. Aww! She just may be the sweetest girl around.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
