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.

Background Info:


This sweet girl was found as a stray by a member of the public and taken to the city pound. She was never claimed so we think she might have been deliberately abandoned. As soon as we met her we thought she was a precious soul so we gave her a name that reflects her worth.  

Adoption Fee: $200
Breed: Pit Bull
Sex: Female
Age: 5-6 yo
Weight: 50-60 Lbs

Health Condition:

Cheryl was borderline emaciated when she was first rescued. She is now nicely gaining weight and recuperating from her ordeal as a stray. She is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations and ready for adoption. 

Physical Description:  

A blue brindle beauty with a darling face, hence her name. Cheryl is medium size with a delicate, yet athletic built. 


Current Living Situation:  

Cheryl is being a good sport at MPR shelter, enjoying this precious chance to find the home she deserves. She is no trouble in her kennel; quiet, patient and well-behaved. She uses her doggy-door to relieve herself in the outdoor run if needed, and hasn't been destructive of her bedding. She's super smart and got the hang of the shelter's routine in just a few days. She's a very adaptable dog who takes life's hardships with a grain of salt.



Outgoing and very friendly. Cheryl is the type of gal who doesn't sweat the small stuff. Her optimism is galvanizing. She's been through a lot and has never lost her sweet and silly smile. 

Cheryl is still in the process of rebuilding her energy but she is not a hyper dog. She's mature but still playful. She has a lively personality, is smart, alert and super fun-loving. 

Behavior with people: 

Cheryl has been nothing but friendly and sociable with all our volunteers. She is comfortable in her own skin and likes everyone the same. An easy-going dog with a wonderful disposition. 


Behavior with children:  



Behavior with other dogs:  

She appears to be a little selective when it comes to her interaction with other dogs. She would shine as an only pet but we won't rule out a home with a laid back and somewhat submissive male who'd let her be the queen. The dogs would require a slow introduction and diligent supervision at all time. 


Behavior with other animals:  

Unknown but a home with a cat is not recommended.


Info coming soon​. We are still getting to know her. 

Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
