Marco is an adorable little chihuahua boy who can be very, very good … and very, very bad. He is sometimes fearful of new people, but he usually warms up fairly soon. He is slowly learning that he can trust people. He is not a pup that will be trustworthy around children … all the noise and activity make him very anxious. He has learned to give kisses and accept snuggles and belly rubs from his foster family. He seems to like other small dogs that are easy going and not too bossy. He likes to play with other small dogs, but he is a very typical exciteable chihuahua!
If you think Marco 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 Marco 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.
