Stilton is an English cheese with a beautiful interior, streaked like marble, and the texture is crumbly and almost soft - relatively delicate compared to its stout and bold flavors.
Stilton was found as a stray by Animal Control. We don’t know much about this beautiful boy’s previous life, but his adorable face and happy spirit will make him a wonderful pet to a lucky family!

Stilton is healthy and ready for adoption.
Stilton is a medium-sized, white and blue brindle beauty. He was a little camera shy when he first arrived at MPR, so we couldn’t capture his great pittie smile but rest assured that this boy flashes it freely. It’s funny to us that he looks so serious in his photos since he is usually quite jovial. Stilton also has the signature floppy ears that we love so much!
After a stint at the MPR Shelter, Stilton is now living the good life in a loving foster home with fenced back yard! He lives with two adult human parents and a 4-year-old female pit mix.
In stark contrast to his earnest appearance in photos, Stilton is actually a silly little boy. He’s fun-loving whether playing fetch with you or entertaining himself with a chew toy. He likes to play in the yard, rain or shine, and doesn’t mind getting his hands (paws) dirty. He shows his calm side when he goes on car rides. He loves sun-bathing and playing in a puppy pool.
Behavior with people:
Stilton loves to run and be chased! Fetch is his favorite game. He has good manners and loves attention but can be independent and entertain himself when humans aren’t around. His foster mom says he is very affectionate and loves to cuddle.
Behavior with children:
Unknown, but Stilton’s lively spirit could make him a good fit for a fun family with kids. Note that he can run fast and hard, so small children might not find his playfulness as endearing as us adults.
Behavior with other dogs:
At the shelter, Stilton showed curiosity when he could see or hear dogs in another room, but he was likely sizing them up as a playmate more than anything else. Stilton is easily exited by other dogs on walks due to his high energy level. He has been slowly introduced to the other female in his foster home and is working on getting to know her better. He can be placed with a compatible female that enjoys his company.
Behavior with other animals:
This goofy guy has a very high prey drive when it comes to birds, squirrels, and rabbits. He will need a strong leader on walks to redirect him and keep him out of trouble.
Stilton learned basic commands from shelter volunteers and was a quick learner! He knows “sit,” “down,” and “shake.” A little training goes a long way with this food-motivated boy! He is housebroken and crate trained. His foster parents crate him at night or when he is home alone and he is no trouble at all.
Stilton is a great dog simply put! He’s easy on the eyes and playful, yet polite. From what we’ve seen from him at the shelter, he’ll do great in an environment where his jaunty personality can shine. Stilton’s idea of a good time is merely being outside in a yard where he can run around and fetch or sprawl out on the lawn with a toy to chew.
Note from foster mom: "Stilton is a great dog! He is a happy go lucky dog and he is very eager to please. He can entertain himself for long hours with a squeaker toy. Fun fact - we’ve never seen a dog so obsessed with laying on their back. He sleeps like that on the couch and won’t budge for 30+ minutes!"
