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.

Background Info:

 

Bic Mac was surrendered to the city pound by his family because they did not have time to for him. Big Mac was kept outside and never knew what the good life was all about. He has now been given a chance to find someone who will treat him much better and welcome him as part of the family, where he belongs. 

Adoption Fee: $ 200
Breed: American Bulldog
Sex: Male
Age: 10-15 mts
Weight: 80-90 Lbs

Health Condition:

Bic Mac is healthy and ready for adoption. 

Physical Description:  

Big, beefy guy who's a little overweight for the moment but building muscle mass now that he has a chance to run and play. We suspect he was kept on a chain before with no exercise. He is not tall for an American Bull, but definitely stocky... and slobbery 😆  

 

Current Living Situation:  

Big Mac is thriving at MPR shelter. He's mostly good in his kennel, although he loves to bring all his blankets outside and make himself a new bed 🤦 - He does keep his inside kennel clean, and is quiet and patient while awaiting his turn to be out with a volunteer. 

 

Personality:   

"Ornery goofball" would best describe this entertaining clown. He's still a puppy and his antics are hilarious. Potential owner will need a ton of patience, some positive leadership, and a good sense of humor with this guy. And if you don't like sloppy kisses, you might want to reconsider 😝 

While Biggie is "big" indeed, and occasionally boisterous, he is not hyper or overly excited. In fact, he has a rather chill personality, at least most of the time. We suspect he might even be on the lazy side when he's a little older. Please be aware that still being a young dog, who never had any structure before, he might get into things if not closely supervised. He is going to need training and patience while he matures and understands house manners. 

Behavior with people: 

Friendly, funny and outgoing. Big Mac is comfortable with everyone he meets and loves people. The happy-go-lucky buffoon doesn't seem to have a preference between men or women. He just loves to amuse everyone with his silly shenanigans and comical nature. He's definitely a big lovable goof.

 

Behavior with children:  

We have not seen him with kids since he's been with us. What we know about him at this point is that he appears to have no malice, a very friendly nature, a kid-like personality and a sturdy built. Those traits are usually compatible to a home with children. That said, he might not always know his size and could easily knock over a toddler. In addition, he is rather slobbery and loves to give a ton of wet kisses. Very young kids could be overwhelmed by his enthusiasm for hand-licking and face-washing. 

 

Behavior with other dogs:  

Unknown. He's still young and hopefully adaptable. He's big though and might come across a little strong with his greetings, which could overwhelm a smaller or older dog. 

 

Behavior with other animals:  

Unknown.

Training: 

He seems housebroken and knows a few commands. Learning about house-manners is a work in progress!
