Named that way because she is the cutest little little love-bug.
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.
Minibug joined the MPR program from the city shelter.
Adoption Fee: 300.00
Breed: Frenchie/Am Bully mix
Age: 3-5 yrs
Weight: 20-30 lbs
Minibug is almost fully recovered from a cold. She's otherwise very healthy, full of energy, and ready for her forever home!
Minibug is a pint sized cutie with the most adorable face. She has big curious eyes. She's front heavy with some muscular shoulders, but clearly skips leg day.
Current Living Situation:
Minibug is currently fostered in a home with one adult and a 9 year old male Staffordshire Terrier mix. The dogs are kept separate at this time, but slow introductions are in process. She has access to a small, Waldo neighborhood fenced yard. She sleeps in her crate at night, and is always crated in her own room when left home alone. Minibug enjoys going on short walks once a day. She loves to say hello to the dogs who live on other sides of the fence!
Minibug is either fully energetic or completely snoozing. She is almost, but not quite a Velcro dog. She is definitely driven by the most adorable curiosity. She regularly takes laps around the house and yard, but always checks to make sure her human is where she left him. Minibug is always talking with cute little snorts and the occasional woof. She loves belly rubs and couch cuddles, but will take some time to find the perfect spot on your lap or next to you to get optimal cuddles and scratches. She's a very endearing little gal who loves to please and has a very entertaining personality.
Behavior with people:
Minibug is outgoing and friendly with everyone she meets!
Behavior with children:
Minibug has not encountered any children while in the foster home, so her behavior with children is unknown at this time.
Behavior with other dogs:
While she definitely wants to play with her foster's grumpy old man dog, she sometimes gets too excited for his level of tolerance. Slow introductions have proven to help both of them understand each other and their boundaries. After a week of sniffing each other through their crates or doors, they get short periods together a few times a day. With proper slow introductions and leadership from her human, it seems possible that Minibug could live with a compatible male.
Behavior with other animals:
Her behavior with other animals is mostly unknown at this time. Minibug has shown an interest in squirrels. She will bark at them and watch them, but has not chased them. She has not interacted with any cats while in foster care.
Minibug seems to be house broken and crate trained. She will sometimes be resistant to going into her kennel. Foster dad is working on this with her. Even tasty treats do not seem to motivate her to go into her crate. However, once she's in the crate, she is no problem and has not had any accidents so far.
She knows sit but is very wiggly and curious and is still learning wait, place, and other commands.
She's a little busy body who is always on the move! Her foster dad gets a lot of delight out of her always wanting to know everything that is going on at all times. She helps supervise every aspect of every chore and wants to join him during videocalls for work.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
