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 to us all. We don’t know the circumstances about what landed Bam at the local shelter, but we know that it’s been a familiar place for him in his life so far. Bam has sadly landed at 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 dog deserves a loving 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 black 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 adults and a 4-year-old female Staffy. He has access to a medium-sized fenced yard and appears to be housebroken. He is crated when home alone and at night, but he needs a little coaxing to go inside because he doesn’t want to miss out on any fun. Bam’s FOMO surpasses after a few minutes, and then he curls into a ball to go to sleep.
Bam is a total goofball! He’s a very curios dog. Bam has been known to counter-surf, so it’s best to keep things out of his reach. He’s a happy go lucky dog and wants to go, go, go! He’s energetic and wants to play immediately upon being released from his kennel. He's also great at chilling and loves to cuddle. Bam goes on daily walks around his neighborhood and enjoys showing off his wiggly personality.
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 jumps up to greet you. Foster parents are working on correcting this behavior and says Bam responds well to redirection.
He can also get a little worked up sometimes when emotions are running high (thanks to Chiefs playoff games)! When this happens, he gets a little mouthy and nervously nibbles on your shirt. It's endearing, but foster parents are working on curbing this habit. Hang in there, buddy! Football season is nearly over 😉 Go Chiefs!
Behavior with children:
Unknown. Due to the jumping that occurs when Bam meets new adults, 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.
Behavior with other animals:
Unknown. There aren’t many small creatures around his foster home, so we’re not sure about his prey drive. We’ll update if he displays any concerning behavior.
Overall, Bam’s very responsive and eager to please his people. Foster parents are working on training and teaching him commands. When Bam tries to see what’s on the kitchen counters, he stops when you tell him “down.” He’s learning “kennel” and will enter with enticing treats. He also knows “sit” and “paw.” Bam wants nothing more than to make you happy.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
