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:

 

Goldie was found under a dumpster at 3-4 weeks old, missing hair and unable to stand from malnourishment.  She was found with her deceased siblings, Goldie was the only survivor.  We will never know how people can be so cruel.  Goldie is a fighter and was able to fully recover into a strong heathy girl. 

Adoption Fee: $ 400
Breed: Pit Bull
Sex: Female
Age: 12+ weeks
Weight: Growing

Health Condition:

Healthy and ready for adoption.

Physical Description:  

Beautiful shiny golden coat.  Goldie has the perfect ears that are starting

to stand up straight.

 

Current Living Situation:  

Fostered in a home.  Kenneled when home alone. 

 

Personality:   

Spunky, fun, independent, but always keeps a close eye on her foster mom.  Loves to cuddle right up next to you after playing.  Goldie is extremely smart.  She will be a fun dog to train with as she is also super food motivated.  She is very loved in her foster home and we are looking for her perfect forever home.

Behavior with people: 

Goldie is great with people.  She can get easily over-stimulated when playing or excited which leads to mouthiness.  She has made big improvements while in foster, but still has her moments.  She was alone at such a young age she didn't get to learn bite inhibition like most puppies.  She will get there in time.  

 

Behavior with children:  

With Goldie getting over-stimulated we feel it is best that she go to a home with older kids or no kids.  While she is purely playing, we want to set her up for success.  

 

Behavior with other dogs:  

Goldie w0uld probably be best as an only dog.  She can overwhelm dogs.  If she went to a home with another compatible male dog they would need to be very tolerant and no high energy.  We a searching for the perfect fit.  She is fostered with other dogs, so she is learning from them, but it comes with constant management to give the adult dogs breaks.

 

Behavior with other animals:  

No cats for this girl :) 

Training: 

Basic training.  She is doing well with potty training.  She currently know sits but with any training Goldie will excel.
