We don’t know a lot about Dillon other than that a Good Samaritan took him in to keep him safe after he appeared to have been abandoned on a rural road. His Good Sam said he sat in one spot on the road for several days and appeared to be waiting for his ‘ride’ to come back to get him. After about 4 days, he gave up and went looking for food and water.
We are not really sure of Dillon’s breed mix, but he is adorable. He has a dachshund body with the head of a tiny yellow lab! Dillon is just adorable, and what he really needs is a family who wants to help him develop some confidence and some manners so he can be the lucky dog he is meant to be.
Dillon will do best with an energetic family willing to play with him and teach him how to be the best boy ever. Could that be you?
If you think Dillon might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms 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 Dillon 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 email AAMR at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
