Funko Pops are endearing pop culture figurines enjoyed by collectors. The toys are known to provoke an "Aww" reaction due to their blocky head and cute nose just below the line of the eyes.
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.
This adorable little guy was found as a stray by a good Samaritan and taken to a local animal shelter. We cannot fathom why such a cute dog didn’t have a home to call his own. Funko Pop is a total ham and will be an amazing addition to the lucky family who adopts him.
Adoption Fee: $250
Breed: American Bully
Age: 1-3 yo
Weight: 50-60 lbs
Healthy and ready to be adopted.
Where to start! Funko is a stocky little man with a blockhead that sits atop his small body. He is mostly white with the most adorable brown freckles adorning his snoot and one ear, which sticks up all the time. His other ear is brown and equally as adorable. Funko has gorgeous hazel eyes that give the best “puppy eyes.”
Current Living Situation:
Funko Pop is fostered in a home with two adults and no other pets. There is a yard, but it’s not fenced so he taken outside on a leash to do his business. Crate training is in progress. Funko sleeps in his kennel at night, but he likes to have it covered. A blanky helps make it feel cozier to him.
Funko’s name could be shortened to “Fun” and it would describe him perfectly. He loves to have fun! He’s happy in any situation. He likes car rides but does need his own seatbelt, otherwise he will try to drive with you. It can take him a bit to settle into a new environment, but once he’s comfortable, let the play begin! Funko loves his toys and treats them with respect. He’s responsive and loves to learn.
Behavior with people:
A total social butterfly and excitable when meeting new humans. Funko loves people and is very outgoing. He soaks up attention from anyone who will give it to him.
Behavior with children:
Behavior with other dogs:
At the shelter, Funko let us know he didn’t like playing with others. But we wouldn’t rule out a home with another compatible female after proper introductions. If there’s another dog nearby when he’s out on a walk, he will have a quick glance at them, but a simple redirection gets his focus right back to his walk. He doesn’t try to greet other dogs and pretty much gives them zero recognition.
Behavior with other animals:
Funko Pop has a low prey drive. He goes on 30-minute walks daily and doesn’t pay any attention to squirrels, bunnies, etc.
This smart boy mastered potty training in no time. Funko can be stubborn at times and needs strong leadership. The ideal furever family will continue training with him. We think additional training be easy for Funko as he has already learned basic commands.
Funko is cute, and he knows it! Foster mom says he will try to use it to get his way, and honestly, who could resist?! Funko is always ready for a picture to be taken and as you can see, he’s extremely photogenic.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
