The Trolls are small, colorful creatures who live in an almost perpetual state of happiness, singing, dancing, hugging, and having fun all day. 

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.

Oh Smidge, where do we start.  She has been described as the perfect puppy (declaimer no puppy is perfect), an old soul, a sweetheart, and miss smarty pants.  She is sure to melt your heart and make you laugh in one fell swoop. 

Behavior with people: 

Everyone who meets Smidge loves her and the feelings are mutual.  Smidge is independent, but loving.  She enjoys a good zoomie session, then curls up next to her human.

Smidge has done great with kids.  She is gentle with them, but at times will still jump as she is still a puppy herself. 


Behavior with other dogs:  

Smidge has so much fun with the other dogs in the home. She would do will with a compatible male or as an only pet.
