Meet Alexis! She's an AAMR Super Star!
Alexis has been in rescue far too long ... and we don't understand why! She is a great girl, so here are a few things you need to know about her:
Approximate age/birthdate: born 10/11/2008
Weight/size: 65 lbs
Crate trained: Yes but she will destroy a crate if left in it too long at a time
Personality: friendly, loves to play, submissive with people
Energy level: medium with bursts of high
Fenced yard required: YES
Leash walk: yes - she is strong and will pull if you allow it
Obedience training: knows sit, is treat-motivated and will come when called
Riding in vehicles: rides ok - should be crated or seat-belted while riding because she likes to roam around in the car ... and try to get in your lap
Up-to-date on routine vaccinations: YES
Microchipped: NO (but a microchip can be provided at adoption)
Social with other dogs: YES
Social with cats: Barks at the cats - has not had an opportunity to get very close to them
Good with children: Will be fine with older/larger children. Size and energy are not a good fit for babies/toddlers.
Alexis is a beautiful, sweet, energetic girl who needs a strong pack leader in her life. She wants to be a good girl, but her size and energy sometimes get in her way. She is very sweet ... she just doesn't realize how large and wiggly she is. She has the signature lab happiness and wags her entire body instead of just her tail. She LOVES people and just wants a family of her very own where someone will love her unconditionally and treat her like a member of the family! She needs to be included in activities so she can work off her energy on a regular daily schedule.
Adoption donation: senior adoption $75
If you think Alexis might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org, click on Forms/Application and complete your dog 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 10 or more applications in process. We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.
When your application is approved, we will schedule a home visit and meet-and-greet to see if Alexis 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 or call 434 841 0411 or 540 297 1590 if you have additional questions.
