Spot came to us from owners who just could not care for them any longer. He is just a sweetie once he knows he can trust you. We’re not sure of the breed mix. We know Mom is a chihuahua mix and have heard rumors that Dad might be a lab/doxie mix. When he first came he had never met many other people, but in 3 days he was sure he loved everybody he met. This guy is so cute and has such a loving personality. He is very high energy and requires a lot of daily exercise. He can also be very vocal so he is not a good candidate to be an apartment/town home/duplex dweller. He is going to be a great addition to some lucky family. He is so smart and energetic and eager to learn. We’re betting with some obedience training he will be a super star.
If you think Spot might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org, click on Forms/Application and complete your adoption application online.
We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits. You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references. Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process. We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.
When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if Spot picks you too.
If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
