Kyros is a legendary gladiator, who fought at the Corrida Colosseum and lost his leg. He was then turned into a toy and became a one-legged soldier known as "Thunder Soldier". 

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:


We haven't received all the info regarding Kyros yet. We do know that he arrived at the city shelter with a very serious injury to his front leg. It was broken at multiple places and had to be amputated. We don't know the circumstances of his accident or the reason of his abandonment at the pound. We have no information regarding his past, genetic background, or upbringing. 

Adoption Fee: 300.00
Breed: AmStaff
Sex: Male
Age: 3-5 yo
Weight: 75-85 Lbs

Health Condition:

Kyros' front left leg was removed in June of 2022. He has since recuperated from his ordeal like a trooper, and is adjusting remarkably well to being on three legs. Other than his recent amputation, Kyros has been neutered, appears healthy, and is ready for adoption. 

Physical Description:  

Drop-dead gorgeous! No other words to describe his exceptional beauty. Kyros has a phenomenal conformation and outstanding blue coat. His ears were cropped short but evenly. He has a huge head and an amazing stature. This dog is a pure hunk.


Current Living Situation:  

We are struggling to make room for Kyros in our program as we would like to give this amazing dog the opportunity to find a home worthy of his beauty and spectacular temperament. He is currently in boarding and in dire need of a home or foster care.
