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:

 

This beauty was found as a stray, taken to the city shelter and never claimed. We have no info regarding her background and upbringing. The second we saw her, the image of a graceful tiger came to mind, hence the name Tiger Lily. 

Adoption Fee: 200.00 
Breed: Pit Bull/Am Bulldog
Sex: Female
Age: 1-3 yo
Weight: 65-75 Lbs

Health Condition:

Tiger Lily is healthy and ready for adoption.

Physical Description:  

Quite the contrast to Tiger Lily’s white volleyball-shaped head, are her dark chocolate eyes. But of course, Tiger Lily’s signature physical attribute is her striking tiger striped coat which emphasizes her long slender legs and body. And the best part about her coat is how incredibly soft it is. 

 

Current Living Situation:  

Tiger Lily is currently living in a foster home with two adults, a 17-year-old, two dogs, and a pair of pet rats.

 

She has free range of the house when someone is home and usually spends that time curled up next to another dog or person. When in an exceptionally cuddly mood, she will happily lie on top of the dog or person’s lap. Although she is also content lying in her own space or in a separate room.

 

At night she sleeps on the bed. When the humans are gone, she is gated in the mud room. During that time she is quiet and naps. She is respectful of the gate in the doorway, other boundaries, and open doors.

 

Personality:   

Tiger Lily is a happy-go-lucky goofball with a well-balanced disposition and level of energy. She is eager to please, responsive, and very easy-going.  

 

Her love language is touch and she is extremely interactive with her paws.

 

Tiger Lily is very tolerant of everything! Handling for bathing, cleaning her paws, ears and face, as well as being picked up (all 70lbs of her).

 

She is a wonderful mix of calm inside the house and also a great partner for hiking/walking several miles outside each day.

 

She is curious about water and new things we have introduced her to. In her spare time, Tiger Lily enjoys chewing on appropriate toys like Kongs, balls, bones, or sticks.

 

She's not afraid of storms, but needs encouragement to get in and out of the car. Once in the car, she lies across the back seat and sleeps.

Behavior with people: 

With people she knows, Tiger Lily happily greets them each time they walk into a room with wiggles, tail wags, and a smile. She calmly and lightly rests her paws on people's chest in greeting on their level. She rarely gives kisses.

 

When given her own space to approach new people, Tiger Lily naturally offers her paw in greeting and loves the attention.

 

Behavior with children:  

Tiger Lily is currently not living with any children in the foster home. She has solicited pets and attention in her brief interactions with the neighbor's school age children.

 

Behavior with other dogs:  

Tiger Lily lives with two other dogs; A Vizsla/Doberman mix, (neutered, 7-years-old) and a Pitbull mix, (spayed, 8-years-old). She has been playful with dogs of a variety of sizes. She is also respectful and listens to older dogs that do not want to play. In the foster home, the two resident dogs frequently alert about any movement outside, but so far Tiger Lily will go to the window to see what all the fuss is about and then will quietly observe the action.

 

Behavior with other animals:  

She may do well with cats when gradually introduced, but is not currently living with cats in the foster home. There are pet rats however, that she likes to interact with by putting her nose to their wire cage, calmly observing them or trying to initiate play with a bow.

Training: 

Tiger Lily stands at the door when she wants to let her foster home know she needs to go outside to do her business, which she does quickly once she is outside. She knows "sit" and has learned "lie down." Tiger Lily is food and praise motivated and eager to learn more.

Best Attribute: 

Tiger Lily is a well rounded young dog. She has been loving towards people, enjoys playing with other dogs, and is house-trained. It is easy to fall hard for this girl!
