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 hunk of a puppy was found as a stray and surprisingly never claimed. We don't have any info regarding his past and upbringing. He was named "Suede" due to his amazing coat color and velvety texture.

Healthy and ready for adoption.
Suede is a big puppy for his age and still growing! Suede has an amazingly soft coat and the golden liver color is just beautiful. Add a gorgeous face with a silly overbite and you have a show-stopper!
Current Living Situation:
Fostered in a home with adults and teenagers, other dogs (one Chihuahua, two Pitbulls), and two cats.
Suede has a medium level of energy and is described as "happy-go-lucky." His foster family travels every weekend with him and he rides great in the car.
He's laid back most of the time, and can entertain himself if no one has time for him.
Suede needs time to bond with a new family and is a little standoffish with strangers. He's is the kind of dog who thrives on consistency.
Behavior with people:
Friendly, but somewhat aloof at first. No sign of aggression. He's just a little indifferent until he gets attached. Once comfortable though, he's an affectionate dog who loves to sit on your lap even though he is huge. Gives lots of kisses. Very sweet and loving.
Behavior with children:
Suede is mouthy and breaking this bad habit has been challenging. He will not be placed in a home with toddlers or small children. He's a big dog and does not know his own strength.
Behavior with other dogs:
Suede gets along well with the dogs in his foster. He can be a little pushy with play-time, so he needs supervision to make sure he won't irritate older dogs.
Behavior with other animals:
He does ok with the cats in the house and seems to have a low prey drive for wild animals outside.
Foster mom says that he is super potty-trained. He does need a little bit of leash-training though. He knows sit, down, shake and is treat motivated.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
