People have loved magnolias for thousands of years. Because of its resistance, magnolia flowers tend to live for many years. This is why one of the symbols that magnolias represents is endurance. Magnolias are not delicate flowers, even though they may seem like they are.
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.

Magnolia is healthy and ready for adoption.
Mostly white with some patches and black dots. Maggie is medium size - athletic and very well proportioned. She has the prettiest face with a soft expression and endearing eyes.
Current Living Situation:
Maggie is currently living-it up at MPR shelter. Though we can't be sure, we believe she was an unloved and neglected outside dog before. Being welcomed inside seems new to her and she is still unsure about her surroundings. She loves being at the shelter though. She is calm and well behaved in her kennel but too insecure to use her doggy-door yet. We're working on it. She doesn't cause any problems. Maggie is quiet and and keeps her area neat and tidy.
Very docile and loving when inside, but playful and occasionally a little ornery when outside. There seems to be two sides to Magnolia, which adds to her charm. She is very affectionate and cuddly, but her happy and playful spirit should not be underestimated.
Behavior with people:
She loves people, although she can be a little unsure at times. She warms up super fast though and can even be a little clingy with her need for attention. Maggie is learning that she will never be deprived of love again and she seems reassured by the good care she is receiving with us.
Behavior with children:
Unknown. While she's a real sweetheart, she might not have had a chance to learn proper social manners with little ones. She can be a little mouthy when excited. She is a work in progress and very receptive to learning, but as of now, we believe she would do better in a home with adults only, or at least older kids that are mature enough to provide a dog with leadership, structure, and positive interactions.
Behavior with other dogs:
Unknown. At the shelter she seems indifferent to the dogs around her, but she has not been officially introduced since being with us.
Behavior with other animals:
Maggie is still very green but seems interested in learning more about life. She's receptive, but a little clueless about house manners at the moment. She did learn quickly that couches make comfortable cuddle stations, ha! Housebreaking is in progress, though she keeps her inside kennel clean.
This sweetheart of a dog has so much potential. While she might not have had a good life prior to her rescue, she was gifted with a very lovely disposition, a fun-loving personality, and an exquisite appearance.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
