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.
Flannel was found as a stray and surprisingly never claimed. We do not have any info regarding her upbringing. We named her "Flannel" because of her incredible markings and amazingly soft coat.
Adoption Fee: $200
Age: 10-16 mts
Weight: 45-55 lbs
Flannel is healthy and ready for adoption.
Amazing looking! Her coat is like velvet and her markings are dazzling. Very dark smokey blue, almost black on her middle body but her chest and legs are gold brindle. This dog is a beauty. She is average size for a female but possibly not full grown yet.
Current Living Situation:
Flannel is having a good time at MPR shelter. She's a fun-loving guest, though still very much a puppy. She isn't reactive to the other dogs and waits patiently for her turn out. She also keeps her inside area clean and uses the doggy-door to her outside run if she needs to relieve herself.
While great in the kennel, she needs supervision when in a room as she is a typical curious teeager who likes to get into things as she discovers the world. We recommend crating her when she's home alone.
Fun-loving, energetic, playfull, silly, etc. A typical young adult with an inquisitive personality. She seems well-adjusted and even-tempered. She likes to be the life of the party but isn't overly boisterous.
Behavior with people:
Friendly and outgoing, though she has been a little reserved when meeting tall men she doesnt know well. It doesn't take her long to warm up though. She's overall very people-oriented and sociable.
Behavior with children:
Unknown but Flannel has this one bad habit of jumping-up on people when greeting. We're working on it but as of now, we think she would do better with older and bigger kids. She can actually reach an adult's face to plant a kiss on them even when they are standing.
Behavior with other dogs:
Flannel hasn't been with other dogs since her arrival in our program but she was part of a large playgroup at the city pound and described as an enthusiastic participant. She could be placed in a home with a compatible male and would probably enjoy a doggy-brother.
Behavior with other animals:
Little training as of now but we're working on it. She's smart and treat motivated, so eager to learn. She's overall a very normal young Terrier, full of fun and potential.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
