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:


Nita was brought into the local city shelter with another dog. Both Nita and the other dog were in rough shape. She was underweight with a coarse coat indicating she had been kept outdoors. She is now safe and in good care at the MPR shelter.

Adoption Fee: $150 
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Sex: Female
Age: 1-3 yrs
Weight: 45-55 lbs

Health Condition:

Nita came into the MPR program underweight but the MPR team is working on getting her back to a healthy weight. Other than needing to put on a few pounds, this little cutie is healthy and ready to adopt.

Physical Description:  

Nita is what you would call 'smedium' build. She is not quite a "pocket pitty" but is right on the edge. She is definitely still small enough to fit in your lap which you find out almost immediately when meeting her. Nita's coat is a beautiful amber/bronze with eyes to match. She has the cutest button nose that you can't help but touch and say 'boop' when greeting her. Do not let pictures fool you, Nita has a pouty face look but she does not have an ounce of pouting to show when around you. Nita's pictures do not do her cuteness justice at all, from the day she arrived our volunteers were swooning over this adorable looking bronze babe.


Current Living Situation:  

Nita is currently living at the MPR shelter. She keeps a clean kennel and uses her doggy door to use the bathroom outside. She likes to lounge on her outdoor bed but always comes running in when she hears volunteers approaching her kennel so she can say hi.



When Nita first arrived at MPR it was clear she had not been shown love by her previous owners and was a bit reserved about trusting humans but is already getting so much better now that she knows humans can reciprocate the love that she herself has. She now is always so happy to see our volunteers when it is her turn to come out and play. Nita will run into the playroom, get a mild case of the zoomies and then immediately jump into your lap and is ready for couch cuddles. She has so so much love to give and is the perfect mix of a medium energy dog and a coach potato. Really, Nita just wants to please and knows how to match the energy in the room. 

Behavior with people: 

Nita is a people pleaser to her core. You are greeted with tail wags and that pouty face looking up at you that you cannot resist giving kisses to. Speaking of kisses, she gives the gentlest kisses herself and does not smother you. Once introductions have been made Nita will turn into your very own personal lap dog. This dog LOVES to be attached to her humans and has been called a "velcro dog" on more than one occasion. Our volunteers all have nothing but glowing reports to give about Nita's affectionate personality after their shifts and many times have trouble putting her back in her kennel instead of just taking her home themselves. Nita is a fantastic ambassador for the endearing disposition that Pitbull type dogs have to offer.


Behavior with children:  

We believe that Nita could live in a home with teenagers. She does get very excited to see people and will sometimes run and jump into your lap which small children are not always ready for.


Behavior with other dogs:  

Nita will need to be an only dog in her forever home. Do not worry though, she will be sure to show enough love to her humans for 10 dogs.


Behavior with other animals:  

Being new to our program, we do not know how Nita reacts to other animals but are learning more about her everyday and will update as we know more.


Having being neglected in her past Nita came into our program without basic commands but the training team at MPR works with her everyday on 'sit' 'down' 'look' and many other common commands. With her eagerness to please, it is believed that Nita will be a quick learner. 

Best Attribute:

While being quite easy on the eyes, Nita's warm heart will win you over immediately. She is the type of dog that you will cancel weekend plans for because you and her will be so attached that you couldn't imagine being apart for the night! This dog has so much love to give and once she is in a forever home she will never leave your side. In need of unconditional love or a new best friend, then stop scrolling and apply for Nita. And really, how can you say no to that adorable pouty face. 

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