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.
Starbuck was found by a member of the public as a stray along with his pal, Callibella. Calli is also in our program, but she has been adopted! He has such a precious face and good demeanor that we knew he deserved a spot at MPR.
Adoption Fee: $150
Breed: Pit Bull
Age: 1-3 yrs
Weight: 44-45 lbs
Healthy and ready to be adopted.
A compact dude shorter than average in stature. He has such a smooshy face with big jowls and loose skin all over! One volunteer described his extra skin like a he's a sack of potatoes in too big of a bag hahaha.
Lt. Starbuck is a light brown color with a dark snoot and some black eyeliner around his eyes. He looks like he's wearing smokey eyeshadow on for a night out lol. If doggy Invisalign was a thing, Starbuck would be a top contender! The boy has some bottom teeth that lean very much toward the crooked side! 😂
Current Living Situation:
A resident at the MPR shelter.
Lt. Starbuck is pretty middle of the road. He can be chill or playful. Usually playful, and then chill! He can run zoomies for a solid ten minutes and then he settles down for some loving. If you get him on his back, he turns into a grunting seal for belly rubs!
Behavior with people:
Total sweetheart. He has not displayed any preferences. Starbuck loves getting to play with various shelter volunteers throughout the day. He gets excited to meet new people and is learning to keep his mouth on his toys and his kisses on his humans!
Behavior with children:
Behavior with other dogs:
Starbuck did well in playgroups at the local shelter before coming to MPR. He could possibly live with a compatible female.
Behavior with other animals:
This little guy is great on a leash! He likes to taste things so we are trying to curb the urge to nom on things he shouldn't. We are also working on some basic commands with him like: sit, down, and touch.
This boy is just too cute for words! His physical appearance and playfulness are sure to make you chuckle. From his baggy skin to his derpy crooked teeth!
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
