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.
Nesquik was found as a stray, taken to the city shelter and never claimed. We expected someone to come back for this cute guy with the striking eyes, but no one did. We don't have any info regarding Nesquik's background and upbringing.
Adoption Fee: $200
Breed: Pit /Bull Terrier mix
Age: 10 to 18 mts
Weight: 45-55 lbs
Nesquik is healthy and ready for adoption.
A cute little guy who will probably always look like a pup. We believe Nesquik is almost full grown and under 50 lbs. He is stocky and very compact, but just a little guy. And look at those ears! And those eyes!!
Current Living Situation:
Nesquik is fostered in a home with adults and several other pets, including a cat. Nesquik spends his time between a city house and a country house where he gets exposure to a ton of stimulus. The little guy is crated when home alone, but that doesn't happen very often. For the most part he enjoys playing with his foster siblings or lounging on the couch with foster mom.
Very outgoing and super laidback. The kind of dog who doesn't sweat the small stuff. He is energetic but knows how to chill too. Nesquik is very well-balanced in that aspect. He also has an even temper and affectionate nature.
Behavior with people:
Friendly and comfortable. He doesn't know a stranger. Foster mom describes him as a cuddly puppy with loving energy.
Behavior with children:
Nesquik hasn't been around many kids since being with us, but he's met a couple little ones a few times and no issues were reported.
Behavior with other dogs:
He currently gets along with the other dogs in his foster home, but doesn't always take no for an answer. The older dogs find him annoying, as his level of energy doesn't always mesh with everyone. He's been put in his place by an irritated older female before, but foster mom is not sure if he got the message. We believe that his puppy energy could trigger conflicts if he was placed in a home with incompatible dogs. As he matures, he might not be so tolerant of punishments by other dogs that he irritates.
Behavior with other animals:
Nesquik lives with a cat and leaves it alone (for the most part), because he has several doggy friends to play with and keep him entertained. Foster mom believes that without this outlet, he would constantly be pestering the cat.
Nesquik is responsive and smart.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
