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.

Background Info:


Minibug joined the MPR program from the city shelter.

Adoption Fee: 300.00
Breed: Frenchie/Am Bully mix
Sex: Female
Age: 3-5 yrs
Weight: 20-30 lbs

Health Condition:

Minibug is healthy, full of energy, and ready for her forever home!

Physical Description:  

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. She also has the cutest little short tail that curls up and doesn't ever seem to move despite her excitement.


Current Living Situation:  

Minibug is currently living at the MPR shelter. She is a great resident and respectful of her space. She loves to spend time out in the yard! Minibug was briefly adopted, and unfortunately returned at no fault of her own. Since her return, Minibug has been living at the MPR shelter.



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 shelter and yard, but always checks to make sure her human is where she left them. 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! Minibug is a constant comedy relief for our volunteer team with her bursts of energy that quickly turn into her on your lap needing butt scratches. Minibug does have a high play drive, particularly with balls, even ones that she cannot fit in her mouth. Because of this high play drive, Minibug will need an owner that will set boundaries with her on when it is an appropriate time to play.

Behavior with children:  

Minibug will need to go to a home with teenagers or no kids. With her high play drive, Minibug can be too much for small children that may think they can keep up with her because of her small size. When Minibug is playing, "ball is life" is her mantra and could accidentally knock a small child over.


Behavior with other dogs:  

Minibug has been introduced to other dogs in the past and has had success after slow introductions. Minibug was introduced to an older, grumpier dog who sometimes got annoyed with her energy levels but we believe a younger, more tolerant male would be compatible for her.

Behavior with other animals:  

Minibug will need to go to a home with no cats as she has shown some prey drive towards them. Minibug has shown an interest in squirrels. She will bark at them and watch them, but has not chased them.


Our volunteers are actively working with Minibug on training. She does know sit but gets a wiggly when in position and is still working on other commands like 'stay' and 'wait'. Minibug is also still working on being housebroken and occasionally has accidents inside at the shelter. Our volunteer team works with her on this everyday and are optimistic that she will improve on this soon.

Best Attribute:

Minibug is a pint sized busy body that always wants to know what you are up to and if she can help. If you need a supervisor while working from home or someone to fill in for you on Skype calls, she is your girl. Minibugs adopter can expect to have a new best friend that will trade cuddles for some scratches, which she does not think is too much to ask.

Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
