Sammy's Info...

Sammy's Story...
Meet Sammy, the go with the flow fellow who just wants to lay with you on the couch. When Sammy looks at you, it is a true connection, and his big brown eyes will melt your heart. Sammy will give you a reason to want to wake up each morning, as he treats each new day as the best day there is. When he is outside he loves to explore the area and sniff around. Sammy walks well on a waist leash too! After he is done sniffing he will roll around in the grass for good measure. Afterwards though he will be ready to head back inside and relax with you while you read your favorite book or watch a movie. Sammy is also appreciative of treats, and will take them from you very gently.

Sammy is currently living it up in his foster home. He is crate trained and house trained. If you have been looking for a true companion to share your life with, look no further than Sammy.


Adoption Process

Guardianship Application available for download at

Adoption Application and other files here


The Adoption process is designed to help best place dogs with homes that are in the best interest of the dogs and their human companions. Not placing meaningful "dogs best interest" criteria on adopters for any dog can too easily put the dog in charge of the direction of the relationship and it is irresponsible for the dog, the family, and society. The adoption process starts with a prescreen review of an Guardian Application. Making decisions about dog placement in adoptive homes is an "art", not a "science", and there will be times when applications will be denied for various reason(s). This is left to the discretion of the MAPS after reviewing relevant information. MAPS reserves the right to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care into a foster or adoptive home. There is absolutely no guarantee, made or implied, that any person or persons requesting to adopt a dog being fostered through MAPS, or posted on MAP's web site, will be granted an adoption. After a successful prescreen, including background checks, the applicant(s) are notified that they can visit the dogs and a time slot is made for the dog and applicant interaction. After the interaction we encourage several days of reflection before adopting a pet to help assure this will be a lifetime commitment of love and quality care for the dog. Next we conduct a home/neighborhood visit to the Guardian Applicant's home. If the home visit proves successful the new mom and/or dad of the dog will sign an Adoption Agreement and share a lifetime of love !

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sammy, a Madison American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in Madison, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Madison.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Madison already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Madison breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Madison paves the way for another one to be saved.
