Pillsbury Doughboy is always cheerful, considerate, and helpful. He is also cheeky, fun, and playful.
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.
This beefcake was found as a stray and taken to a local animal shelter where he was never claimed. We cannot believe such an exquisite looking dog was ever unwanted. Unfortunately, we don’t have any information about how he landed at the pound, but we promised Pillsbury that we’d find him a home that would cherish him forever.
Adoption Fee: $250
Breed: Pitbull Mix
Age: 3-4 years old
Pillsbury had kennel cough when he first arrived to MPR that is being treated. Otherwise, he is healthy and ready for adoption.
Can you even?! Pillsbury is SO HANDSOME! This guy is short and stout. He’s somewhat awkward when he moves just because he’s such a meathead with stubby little legs. His coat is mostly white, but his big ole head is remarkably tri colored. He has evenly cropped ears with eyes that look sad when photographed.
Current Living Situation:
This hunky boy is being fostered in an apartment with an adult female. He is crate trained and no trouble at all. At night he sleeps on a dog bed in foster mom’s bedroom.
Pillsbury is super easy going and most content on the couch. He’s a bit lazy and prefers to spend his time lounging around. Foster mom says he reminds her of an old grandpa with his facial expressions, but he’s actually a very happy boy.
Behavior with people:
He is well behaved when meeting new people and has not shown any sort of preference in regard to male/female human company.
Behavior with children:
Behavior with other dogs:
Pillsbury has not met any other dogs while in our care yet. He was introduced to others at the animal shelter, and we were told he was good with the females. He hasn’t shown any reaction to other dogs when he goes potty outside the apartment. Foster mom will work on a slow introduction between Pillsbury and her significant other’s female Border Collie once he is over his kennel cough and feeling better.
We’ll update this information once we know more.
Behavior with other animals:
Pillsbury has not had any accidents in his foster home. When mom has to leave the apartment, he goes right into his kennel with a treat. He knowns “sit” and is working on mastering “wait” when he gets fed. Pillsbury does fantastic on a leash and in the car – he just needs a little boost getting inside.
Pillsbury’s physical appearance is to die for! The fact that he’s so easy going is just the cherry on top of this pastry boy 😉
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
