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.

Background Info:

 

Suzy Q was found as a stray, taken to the local shelter and never claimed.  We have no info regarding her background and upbringing, but she was very thin and sick when she arrived. We suspect she was either lost for while or didn't have a good home.  She was more than happy to leave her sad past behind and we promised her that she will only be treated like a princess from now on. 

Adoption Fee: $ 200
Breed: Pit Bull
Sex: Female
Age: 2-6 yrs
Weight: 60-70 lbs

Health Condition:

Sadly, this very sweet girl tested positive for heartworm disease. The treatment has begun and Suzy should be fully recovered by the end of winter. Local homes can adopt Suzy during her treatment as long as they have the ability to keep her calm for a few months. We will provide more information to interested parties. The treatment is all paid for and won't cost a thing to potential adopters other than a heartworm test after recovery. 

Physical Description:  

A diamond in the rough. She was so skinny when she first came to us, but Suzy is already gaining much needed weight. We can already tell she's going to be a beauty when she's back in shape. She has such soulful eyes and an endearing personality that shines through when she sweetly looks at you. Suzy is medium size but might end up being slightly above average for a female when she's gained all the weight she needs. 

 

Current Living Situation:  

Suzy is recovering from her ordeal at MPR shelter and loving every minute of it. She obviously knows a good thing when she has it and has been very grateful to be given this precious chance.  She is super easy to handle and very well behaved in her kennel. Miss Suzy is already a volunteer favorite because she is no trouble at all. 

Suzy Q keeps her kennel clean and is not destructive of her bedding. She is quiet, patient, and non-reactive toward the dogs next to her kennel. 

 

Personality:   

This one is a real sweetheart! So loving and pleasing. Suzy has a darling personality with a positive, yet calm nature. She might gain a little more energy as she regains her strength but as of now, she is just as easy and chill as they come, yet not lazy. Just a well-balanced dog with a docile and friendly temperament. 

 

Behavior with people: 

Suzy appears to have a very well adjusted disposition, slightly on the submissive side when it comes to people.  Someone might have had a heavy hand in the past but she doesn't hold a grudge towards people at all. Not shy at all, she is actually outgoing and affectionate, and obviously relieved to finally be surrounded by friendly people. 

 

Behavior with children:  

Unknown. As of now, Suzy is giving us no reason to believe she might not do well in a home with children. However, she hasn't met any little ones since being with us.

 

Behavior with other dogs:  

We believe Suzy Q needs to be an only pet. While she is not reactive towards the dogs kenneled next to her at the shelter, she is not giving us any indication that she would like to make doggy-friends. The city pound made a few introduction attempts during her brief stay with them and concluded that she would be more successful if she was the only 4-legged princess in her home.

 

Behavior with other animals:  

Unknown but a home with cats is not recommended.

Training: 

Suzy seems naturally well-behaved and appears to have basic house-manners. She is keeping her kennel clean and hasn't had any accident in our play rooms. She does her business in the yard when its her turn out. She is responsive, sits for treats and seems alert and sharp.

Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
