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.
Bam is a bit of a mystery... We don’t know the circumstances behind what landed him at the local shelter, but we know that it’s been a familiar place for him. Bam has sadly been in and out of the shelter four times in the past year. While we don’t have information about his background or upbringing, we know that he’s safe with us now and that’s all that matters. Such a handsome and loving dog deserves a devoted family to call his own!
Adoption Fee: $150
Breed: Pitbull Mix
Age: 1-3 years old
Bam is healthy and ready for adoption.
Hubba hubba! This boy is strikingly handsome! He’s Blue and white with distinctive markings on his nose and chin. Bam has natural floppy ears and the cutest Pittie smile.
Current Living Situation:
Bam lives in a foster home with three adults and a 4-year-old female Staffy. He has access to a medium-sized fenced yard and appears to be housebroken as he has never had an accident in the house. He is crated when home alone, but he needs a little coaxing to go inside because he doesn’t want to miss out on any fun. Enticing him with treats is the best way to convince him. A cube of cheese will do the trick. 😉 Bam’s FOMO surpasses and he curls into a ball to lay down after a few minutes.
Bam is a total goofball! He’s a very curios dog. He’s super smart, too! Bam is a happy go lucky dog and wants to go, go, go! Bam goes on daily walks around his neighborhood twice a day to deplete his energy, enjoys playing, and showing off his wiggly personality. After his walk, he just wants to chill with his people on the couch and watch TV. He wants nothing more than to be by your side.
Bam is a creature of habit and once he picks up on a routine, he demands that the routine be kept lol. He enjoys frozen Kongs stuffed with dog food, plain Greek yogurt, pumpkin, etc. When it's bedtime, it's bedtime!
Behavior with people:
Outgoing and friendly with everyone. Maybe a little bit too friendly. Bam loves to greet everyone and can get a little excited when guests come over. He likes to say “hi!” with his body and give lots of kisses. Foster parents are working with him to keep his feet on the floor and say Bam responds well to redirection. He can’t get enough of meeting new people!
Behavior with children:
Unknown. Due to his excitement meeting new people, a home with small children is not recommended.
Behavior with other dogs:
After a slow and proper introduction, Bam gets along swimmingly with his foster sister. He adores her! He has learned her boundaries and knows not to push them. They enjoy naps on the bed together and partaking in the occasional wrestling match.
Based on his behavior with his foster sibling, we think that with the right introductions, Bam would welcome a female companion. He’s quick to pick up on social queues and enjoys having someone to pal around with.
There are other dogs on both sides of the fence at his foster home, but he has never engaged in any ruckus. Foster dad says that he just sniffs along the fence, checking them out. On walks he is interested in other dogs in a “hey, let’s play!” manner, but can be redirected easily.
Behavior with other animals:
On walks in the neighborhood, he has come across a couple of squirrels, rabbits, and outdoor cats. Bam shows interest, but as long as he's contained in a Weiss Walkie, he generally moves on quickly. He will glance back at the animal but can be redirected and move on. Foster parents highly recommend using a Weiss Walkie for outings to keep him safely under their control.
Overall, Bam’s very responsive and eager to please his people. He enjoys learning new tricks and he does so quickly! He now knows “get in your bed,” so he does not have to be kenneled overnight. Though, foster parents often find him snuggling with his foster sister in hers. ❤️
He has also mastered “sit” and “paw” and has learned that countertops are not for doggy exploration. On the leash, he's learned "wait" and "let’s go" when approaching an intersection in the neighborhood that requires him to cross the street.
Bam wants nothing more than to make you happy.
Bam not having a place to call home is quite shocking honestly. We’re not sure why he was in and out of the shelter so often because he’s such a great dog. If he had a troubled past, you’d never know it! Bam is the ultimate people pleaser and wants nothing more than a family to call his own.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
