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 will be honest regarding what we know about them. For MPR, quality of adoptions takes precedence over a quick turnaround.
We do our very best to update the dogs bios as quickly as we can. In many 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 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 react under all circumstances and situations.
This good looking dude was found as a stray, taken to the city shelter and surprisingly never claimed. A hit with the staff, they contacted us right away to come meet him. The rest is history...

Pixel is healthy and ready for adoption.
Medium size, athletic and very well proportioned. And look at those eyes!! This dog is GORGEOUS in person.
Current Living Situation:
Pixel is living-it-up at MPR shelter. He's a good sport about his situation and taking his ordeal in stride. Pixel keeps his kennel clean and uses the doggy-door to let himself out for his business if needed. He does well with his bedding and keeps his kennel neat and tidy. He is no trouble at all and the volunteers adore him. They claim he is the best dog we have right now and no one understands why he hasn't been adopted yet.
Fun-loving goof who's always in a good mood. While he's a very happy-go-lucky dog, Pixel also has a bit of a sensitive soul. Positive leadership does wonders with him.
Pixels loves to run, play and have a good time outside and is a calm, well-behaved cuddle-bug inside. Pixel is a beautiful smart boy with good manners and great demeanors. Pixel loves to chase the ball and do zoomies in the yard. He's a well-rounded dog with a medium/high energy level but very chill in the house. The kind of dog who can adapt to a lot of different situations provided he has a good outlet for his energy.
Pixel went to the lake with volunteers this summer and had a fantastic time. Very well behaved on the pontoon boat and had a blast in the water. He's a great swimmer and a ton of fun 🏖️
Behavior with people:
Very friendly, outgoing and playful. He doesn't know a stranger! His affectionate, amicable and loving temperament is very true to the breed. Pixel is a great Pit Bull ambassador.
Behavior with children:
Unknown but he might be a bit too sensitive for toddlers. We have a feeling he would do well in an active home with playful teenagers, provided they treat him with kindness.
Behavior with other dogs:
We were told that Pixel was a bit overwhelming when introduced to other dogs while at the city shelter. He comes across a little too eager and can be irritating to sensitive dogs. We believe he would do best as an only pet. He might be able to share a home with a compatible female, provided she is young, active and self-secured enough to handle a silly-clown who loves to roughhouse.
UPDATE: We introduced Pixel to a young female tis summer and he did well for the most part. Roughhousing needs to be supervised and well-managed. Slow intros recommended.
Behavior with other animals:
Unknown. A home with cats is not recommended.
Pixel is one smart cookie! Eager to learn and to show off his tricks, this dog has great potential for obedience training. He's very sharp and has great timing responsive.
His friendliness, kind heart and sweet nature combined with his love to play and have a good time. This dog is pretty much perfect! Best in our program right now!
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
