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.

Kamari is healthy and ready for adoption.
Exquisite blue brindle coat and a beautiful head/face. Her eyes are expressive and reflect her friendly disposition. Kamari is muscular and well-proportioned. A true beauty, inside and out.
Current Living Situation:
Kamari is fostered in a home with two adults and a three year old male Pit Bull. There is a medium yard with a five foot tall picket fence, which Kamari respects. Kamari is kept in a crate when no one is home and sleeps in her crate at night. The introduction with the resident dog has been successful.
Kamari is a super loving soul and her foster parents claim she is made of snuggles. She loves to spend time on the couch with her people and playing in the yard with her foster brother. She does pretty well in the car, but wants to be in your business so it is best if you can prevent her from climbing up.
She isn't overly playful with her humans, but she loves running around the yard with her foster brother. That said, Kamari is very calm while in the house and really just wants to lay around or cuddle. Once she gets outside she can be excitable and really wants to play.
Behavior with people:
She has yet to meet a person she doesn't like. She can be exuberant and jumpy when meeting a person for the first time but calms down quickly. Typical Pit Bull behavior. Everyone is a long-lost-friend.
She is one of the snuggliest dogs we have ever been around. Pretty much as soon as you sit down she is going to want to climb up with you and snuggle.
Behavior with children:
Foster parents aren't sure how well she would do with younger kids because when she gets excited she can get a bit mouthy and nippy. Older kids or an adult home is preferred.
Behavior with other dogs:
Foster dad believes Kamari would do well in a house with a compatible dog. This comes with a slight caveat; Kamari could overwhelm an older dog with her constant desire to play, especially when outside. A young, playful and outgoing male might be a good match for her.
During the night, Kamari sleeps in her foster parents' room in a kennel with her foster brother free to roam. They really don't have much interest in each other once they get tired and lay down.
Behavior with other animals:
She definitely has a strong prey drive and squirrels are a main trigger. Her prey drive should rule out a home with a cat, though we have yet to encounter one during our outings.
Kamari is housebroken in her foster home. She goes and sits by the door politely when she needs to go out. We are working on some basic commands and crate training. She is responsive to training, but definitely needs someone to be consistent and provide positive leadership. Kam has a tendency to pull on the leash when excited and is very strong. She can be difficult to redirect when she sees other animals on walks. She's a great candidate for obedience training.
A word from foster dad: "She is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever been around. Pretty much as soon as we get home she just wanted to cuddle on the couch with us. She is such a loving dog towards both us and so friendly with her foster brother. Kamari would be a beautiful addition to her forever family."
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
