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:


Sweet Marmee was found as a stray, pregnant and ready to deliver any day. She had her babies in foster care.  She was the most attentive mama, but unfortunately was unable to produce enough milk to feed her 9 babies.  Her babies had to be bottle-fed and only 3 survived. It was an extremely 

heartbreaking ordeal for mom and everyone involved. We are thankful for her 3 strong darling little girls.  We are also thankful to have saved Marmee. She was not well cared for prior to arriving into foster care, but she is now on her way to recovery with a lot of TLC and she nothing but thankful.
