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.
Sisira was the victim of unscrupulous breeders who discarded her when she wasn't of use to them anymore. She was given to a friend of a friend of a friend. Had at least 3 homes and eventually landed at the city pound. She was then adopted to a loving home, only to lose it one more time when the landlord found out about her. We can only hope this beauty will soon be able to find her forever home and unpack her boxes once and for all!

Sisi is healthy and ready for adoption.
A blue and white beauty with cropped ears and a gorgeous face. She is average size for a female and very well proportioned.
Sisira is fostered in a home with two adults and several dogs of all sizes. She is kept separate from the other dogs most of the time, except a large male she does well with She seems unwilling to make doggy-friends with the females or the small dogs.
Sisira is crate trained and very well behaved in her crate. She is quiet, patient and polite. Her crate is in the same room as the rest of the family and dogs.
There is a medium fenced yard in her foster home, which Sisira enjoys.
Sisi hasn't had any accident in the house and waits for her turn in the yard to relieve herself.
A charming princess would describe her well. Foster parent tell us that she has a loving personality and a great mix of cuddly and playful.
Sisi's level of energy is medium. She's young and ready for a good time but not hyper or rambunctious. She does love to go on walks.
Sisira has great house manners and is very well behaved. She has a bit of a territorial nature and seems a little protective of her environment. She gets attached quickly despite having been bounced around so many homes, but adapts very well as well.
Behavior with people:
Friendly and very affectionate with her loved-ones. She can be a tiny bit timid on first meeting but warms up real fast. She seems especially fond of men and loves to cuddle. She's also very "kissy".
Behavior with children:
She's always done well with "her" kids but gets protective of them. This means that she can be a little uptight with visiting children. Due to this behavior, we do not recommend a home with kids for this little beauty. She needs responsible adult ownership.
Behavior with other dogs:
Sisira is dominant with dogs and doesn't get along with most of them. She is fine with an older, easygoing male in her foster home who's not interacting with her much. He lets her be the queen. She needs strong supervision though as she can quickly turn play into something less fun. She is however easy to manage in a home with multiple dogs via baby gates.
Behavior with other animals:
Unknown when it comes to cats but not recommended. There are free-range chickens next to the fenced yard in Sisi's foster home. She was very interested and intense when first seeing them next to the fence, but responsive when foster dad told her to leave the chickens alone.
Sisira seems to be housebroken and does good in her crate. She is smart, responsive and eager-to-please.
She's beautiful and so easy to fall in love with. She would make a great companion for someone with no kids or other pets as she is easy to handle and very sweet.
