Cheese puffs are a puffed corn snack, coated with a mixture of cheese or cheese-flavored powders. They may be ball-shaped, curly, straight, or irregularly shaped.
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 will be honest regarding what we know about them. For MPR, quality of adoptions takes precedence over a quick turnaround.
We do our very best to update the dogs bios as quickly as we can. In many 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 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 react under all circumstances and situations.
This sweetheart was found with a bucket of "Cheese Puffs" stuck on the head & taken to the pound. He immediately charmed the staff & was selected for our program. Note that Cheese's previous owner was localized but didn't want him back after finding out he had to be neutered per Kansas City law. His loss, our gain! This little guy is a TREASURE!
UPDATE June 2021. Cheese Puff was adopted in 2020 and returned recently due to anxiety issues. We believe some of his behavior might be due to lingering health problems. We are currently making health assessment and will post more info soon.
Adoption Fee: $ 200
Breed: Pit Bull
Age: 3-6 yrs
Weight: 45-60 lbs
Cheese Puff is currently under health assessment. More info coming soon.
Very cute. Well proportioned. A little smaller than average for a male but not by much. His ears must have been cropped by a veterinarian who did a more typical Boxer crop instead of APBT, but it suits him.
Fostered in a home with 2 adults and several dogs. More info coming soon.
The word "sweetheart" must have been invented for him. What a sweetie-pie! Gentle and docile, low energy but eager to fit in. Someone might have had a heavy hand on him before and he's a little sensitive but slowly regaining confidence. We will post more info about him once we know him better.
Behavior with people:
Cheese Puff has been nothing but sweet, loving and delightful with everyone he meets. It's impossible to resist his soft eyes and doting smile. He is especially fond of women but has been super sweet with men as well. Not a mean bone in this little guy.
Behavior with children:
Cheese Puff lived in a home with toddlers for 1 1/2 year and was wonderful with them.
Behavior with other dogs:
Cheese Puff lived with a female Lab and did very well with her. He has been around small dogs as well. He is not fond of other male dogs.
Behavior with other animals:
No cats please!
Info coming soon
His tenderheart is for sure his best attribute. In addition, Cheese Puff is very easy to handle and super eager to please... And he's gorgeous! What more can you ask?
