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:

 

Periwinkle came to us after being dumped in an alleyway.  She had her ears freshly cropped in an inhuman way.  She was fifthly with overgrown nails.  Sweet periwinkle was terrified and shutdown.  Her foster mom promised her she was safe and would be loved and treated well for the rest of her life. 

Adoption Fee: $ 200
Breed: Pit Bull
Sex: Female
Age: 6 mths
Weight: Growing

Health Condition:

Periwinkle is now healthy and ready for adoption.

Physical Description:  

Periwinkle is the definition of pocket pittie.  She is estimated around 6 mth and currently weighs under 20 lbs. 

 

Current Living Situation:  

In a foster home.

Personality:   

Periwinkle can be on the timid side.  She is a pup that will take time to feel at home.  She can still get overwhelmed and nervous, but trust us there is a happy puppy that comes out to play when she feels safe.  While she may be a project to fully build her confidence, we promise there is nothing more rewarding than winning over an abused pup's trust. ​

Behavior with people: 

Periwinkle is slow to warm up, but very much loves her people that she feels safe with.

Behavior with children:  

We think that young children would be too overwhelming for her.  She loves her human foster sister, so we know she would enjoy older, calmer children in the home. 

Behavior with other dogs:  

Periwinkle must go to a home with another male dog to ensure that she thrives.  She feels very happy and safe with her foster siblings and wants to be next to them at all times. 

Behavior with other animals:
