6.13.18 Team Kenya-Meet us this Saturday @ the My Burger Event!

Team Kenya is waiting patiently to meet you this Saturday!

Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue is excited to partner with My Burger for a day full of fun. We’re even bringing our friends over at My Pit Bull is Family along for the ride!

3100 Excelsior Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55416
9:30 - 11:00 am Pack Walk πŸΎ My Pit Bull is Family is no stranger to hosting a great pack walk! Join us in the morning & walk around Lake Calhoun before the fundraiser begins. Our training partners A New Leash Minneapolis will be joining us to answer any questions you have along the walk!

Well behaved dogs of all kinds and children are welcome to join us.
A few guidelines:
1. No face to face meeting. Always ask the dog's human if they can meet. Meetings should be made with loose leashes and calm humans. Dogs know when we're stressed, and they get stressed too.
2. NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES. If you show up with a retractable leash we will give you an alternative leash to use for the walk.
3. Yellow ribbons for our more anxious dog friends: Dogs known or believed to be anxious when around other dogs are to wear a yellow ribbon to let others know to respect your dog’s space.
4. All dogs should be up to date on shots: In the interest of good health for all the dogs attending our walks we ask that you do not join us unless your dog is up to date on their shots/vaccinations.
5. Pick up the poo: If you don't have poop bags we have them. Just see one of the My Pit Bull is Family volunteers for a bag.
6. No Smoking: Please do not smoke on our short walk. Please do so before or after.
7. Be sure to check in with a My Pit Bull is Family volunteer before you leave and grab a sticker!

6.6.18 Hi from Buddy!

It’s time for a Buddy break! 

When we got Buddy in January, he could barely use his back legs. Fast forward to today and he’s running & enjoying life. If you or someone you know is looking for a good boy, look no further!

Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs. Buddy was adopted from the shelter in TX when he was a puppy. He was later returned as an adult. At the time of return he was unable to use his back legs. The adopters had zero explanation as to how he lost the use of his back legs. X-rays were immediately done and they came back clear. We suspect he has nerve damage at this point and a back leg that had been broken and never healed correctly. Once Buddy came to us, he started with chiropractic and acupuncture work. He was also fit with a brace for his leg and this has helped tremendously. He is able to walk and run now! He doesn't do well on slippery surfaces though. Buddy also lacks proper control off his urine. Due to this, he does leak urine so he will either need a home with floors that are easily cleaned or he’ll need to be wearing a diaper. Buddy does do fine with his bowel movements and keeping those outside during potty breaks. Other than the leaking of urine he is house trained. Buddy has an unknown medical issue with his back legs and we hope to find out more about it at his appointment for an MRI on July 9th. This does sound scary but we encourage you to meet Buddy in person. He is a happy dog that just needs a home with love. We would love to see him in a home with another dog or kids as he does really well with both. .
Other dogs, cats, children.

Meet Buddy

Thanks for stopping by! Here are some helpful tips:

• All dogs listed on Petfinder are still available.

• Read the bio but still have questions? Email

• Please DO NOT use the "Ask About Me" tab on this page. If you do, we won't get it & it slows down the process.

6.4.18 Adoption Update- Ron

Anyone remember the Harry Potter litter from last year? Here's an update from his dad:

Today is Rocky’s (FKA Ron from the Harry Potter litter) 1 year adoption anniversary! He came to us needing some love and only weighing 14 lbs. He weighed in at 48 lbs this morning!
We recently had his blood tested to see what his mix was: 5/8 Amstaff, 1/8 German Shepherd, and 1/4 small terrier mix!
A special thanks to the team at Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue for helping bring Rocky into our lives!
