2.19.19 Hello from Ted

Hi, my name is Ted and I love the snow ❄️ 

I am 4 ½ years old and am a stunning brindle male 
shepherd mix. I am tall and weigh 85 lbs. 

I like to be active and play and take walks. But also like my time to be lazy and relaxed.

I am very smart and know sit, down, wait, come, shake, high five and speak. I am learning roll over, wait in my kennel and taking treats very gently.

2.18.19 Business Bark Out- 10K Brewing

February 18, 2019

Buisness Barkout, Volume 7 features 10K Brewing located in Anoka, Mn! 10K has hosted Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue multiple times for our adoption events and our pups and volunteers have been extremely grateful. Check out some pictures below from our last event. We’re happy to report all of these pups have been adopted!

Frisco enjoyed all the pets
10K is dog friendly year round inside their taproom (as long as your fur babies are respectable), kid friendly anytime before 10pm, and they have plenty of non alcoholic beverages too. They have a small patio out front that you can also enjoy during the warmer months. Although they don’t sell food themselves (except for a few snacks), they do share a building with MaGillycuddy's, which has free delivery for 10K’s customers. If you’re ever looking for somewhere to go in Downtown Anoka, we highly suggest giving 10K a go. They have great beers and a great atmosphere.

Anastasia LOVED 10K

Aris hardly remembers 10K...

If you or someone you know is interested in partnering with us, or they have a love for pitties & support the breed in some way, please email our Event/ Social Media Coordinator- We’d love to give them a feature on our page! Thank you for taking the time to read this, stay tuned for more … coming every Monday!

2.14.19 Meet Angelica

Angelica says “foster mom, stop working & come play with me!”
How can you say no to that sweet face? Information for adopting Angelica can be found at

Name: Angelica

Nicknames: Angel, Jelly Belly

Age: 2 years (as of 1/19/19)

Activity Level: Low/Medium

Things I do in my free time: SNUGGLE! It's my favorite thing in the world! If that's not an option, I like to chew on toys and I just found a ball that makes these funny noises! So weird!

Things I know: My name, sit, kennel

Things I am learning: Down, shake, off

Kids: Unsure, but I think ok

Dogs: Meh, I could take them or leave them. I'd much rather be with people!

Cats: No problem! Size: Small, about 25 lbs.

Car rides: Great! But I may want to sit in someone's lap, even if that's the driver!

Additional Info from foster parent: Angel is true to her name! She is a total shadow and will follow you wherever you go. She has found her favorite spot when I'm working from home is under my desk. She still has some trust issues and it breaks my heart that she flinches sometimes when I reach out to pet her, but we'll get there! I'm learning more about her personality every day!

2.13.19 Volunteer of the Month- Mark!

Meet Mark!

How did you find out about Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue?

I was specifically looking to adopt a pittie and I found MPBR online.  I went to a puppy meet n’ greet at Rock Bottom Brewery downtown.  

Why did you decide to start volunteering for MPBR?

Knowing MN Pitbull Rescue was all volunteer based I wanted to volunteer as way to give back to the organization that gave us our first puppy.  We are not currently able to foster so volunteering is the next best thing!!
One of our cats & Seamus

How long have you volunteered for the rescue?

It'll be six years in June.  

Do you have any pets?

We got our pupper, Seamus from the rescue and some cats.

Where's your favorite dog friendly place to take your pup?

Love to take Seamus for a walk around Lake Harriet.  There’s a secret spot where dogs can go swimming and he LOVES it.  Also like walking the trails at Minnehaha Falls.  After a nice long walk he likes to rest in the shade of the trees, eat lunch and watch the kids play.

When not surrounded by dogs – what can you be found doing?

We bought a fixer upper home that we’ve been working on.  We love going to sporting events when my teams are in town, theater, and checking out new places to to eat.

Seamus & an overnight guest!
Seamus & an overnight guest, take 2!

Mark helps with A LOT of puppy transports!
Do you have a favorite memory that happened while you were volunteering? 

My favorite memories are when we break out the puppy kissing booth.  It’s great to see people so happy meeting the little ones.  Especially the kids. I also, love to bring pups to the house for overnight stays and they can run around the yard playing with Seamus.  He loves having someone to play with!!!

Do you have any advice for current or future volunteers? 

Every little bit helps!!!  Something as simple as picking up clothes or medicine for the dogs may not be the most fun, but it really means a lot to the fosters.  Plus, not being from here, I get to learn where places are like Crystal, Fridley, Woodbury and Inver Grove Heights!!!


Each month one of our foster pawrents receives a gift card as a thank you.This is our small way of showing appreciation for the dedication our volunteers have to this rescue. Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue is 100% volunteer based- no shelters here! Each dog we are able to save is because a foster is willing to open their home for us  Interested in volunteering? Check out some info here.

2.12.19 We need your help!


We need kennels!
We have 15 puppies that will be ready for adoption at the beginning of March & we are in desperate need of small kennels. If you can help, please click here 

Stay tuned for more puppy news, they're all SO cute!

2.9.19 Hi from Sasha

Sasha was a rockstar at AQK9 today! She did some “It’s your choice” and Name Game while others were working and she rocked at the first few CGC test exercises. She remained calm while a stranger approached or pet her and passed the grooming test with flying colors. She was completely calm and relaxed while we touched and pet her from head to toe. Isn’t she adorable?! Adopt Sasha at
