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.

Physical Description:  

This little guy is TINY! No kidding. About the size of a big Min Pin or Manchester Terrier, but blue brindle. Very unique.  So if you are looking for a fun-loving pocket-size pity or if you have a weight limit in your residence, this little guy might work for you (depending on the size restriction). That said, he might not be full grown yet but we are pretty sure he will remain under 40 Lbs., and possibly stay closer to 30 lbs.  

As if his cute size wasnt already enough to convince you, Joey has a cutest little mug and most adorable kangaroo ears.

Joey is fostered in a home with two adults and a mature female dog. More info coming soon
