Jay

The meaning of seeing a blue jay is to communicate well, persist, and plan for the future. It may also symbolize protection and fearlessness. The meaning of the name Jay is also "To rejoice" (from the Latin Gaius).

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:

 

Jay was found as a stray, taken to the local pound and never claimed. We do not have any other information regarding his background and upbringing.  

Adoption Fee: $ 200
Breed: Pit Bull/Am Staff
Sex: Male
Age: 1-3 yrs
Weight: 60-70 lbs

Health Condition:

Healthy and ready for adoption

Physical Description:  

Handsome blue & white boy with a muscular body and a beautiful head. His ears are natural and soft. His dreamy eyes reflect his good nature and loving personality.  Jay is a little larger than average, tall and big boned. 

 

Current Living Situation:  

Jay is being a good sport at MPR while awaiting his forever home. He keeps his kennel clean and neat. He is well-behaved for the most part but prefers being kenneled next to female dogs rather than males. 

 

Personality:   

Well-balanced, easy-going and responsive. Affectionate and eager-to-please. Jay is laid back most of the time but his happy-go-lucky personality cant be underestimated. He definitly has a playful side and loves a good bound of zoomies in the yard. He's a toy dog too and always ready to enjoy a good time.

Behavior with people: 

Jay is a sweetheart with his loved-ones but might be a little protective when it comes to strangers. He warms up fast but does better with people who are comfortable with dogs. He's the kind of dog who will bond strongly with his family and get deeply attached. He's probably going to spend the rest of his life showing his gratitude and loyalty with a ton of love and dedication.

 

Behavior with children:  

Unknown. While we haven't witnessed any interaction between Jay and kids as of now, we know that he is a big clumsy dog with occasional goofball moments. He might do well with older, bigger kids but could be a little too much dog for smaller kids. The fact that he is protective also, needs to be taken in consideration. He will surely love "his" kids but might feel the need to protect them when their friends come over.

Behavior with other dogs:  

Though Jay has not been formally introduced to other dogs since being with us, he comes across as dominant towards other males. He might be a gentleman with the doggy ladies but we dont know for sure.  

 

Behavior with other animals:  

Unknown

Training: 

Jay knows a few commands and we suspect someone had a heavy hand with him before. He is learning to trust again and thrives on positive leadership. 

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