China is a beautiful, unique, and wonderful girl … a mix of Chinese shar-pei and German Shepherd (per her original owner).  She has the aloof, subdued personality of the shar-pei along with that beautiful snuffly muzzle.  She is a sweet girl and she does enjoy human interaction.  She is not extremely demonstrative about her affection for you, but you can see her emotions in her eyes.  She interacts well with her foster siblings although she really doesn’t ‘play’ … in true shar-pei character!


China has shar-pei skin … which means she has some itchy skin and allergic reactions so it is very important that she has a healthy diet, some extra vitamin E, and she cannot go without flea preventative due to her allergic reaction to flea bites.


China will do well in a moderately active household.  She is definitely an inside girl.  She will not be happy with a loud, very active environment … she will withdraw.  She does not have extreme exercise needs but she does need to have regular daily exercise and positive, loving attention from her family members.  She doesn't play ... with people or with other dogs.  A fenced yard will be great as she loves to get outside and sunbathe and just watch the world go by, but she does not like to be left outside alone for long periods of time.

If you think China might be the perfect pup for you, please go to, 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 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 meet-and-greet to see if China 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 or call 434 841 0411 or 540 297 1590 if you have additional questions.

About All-American Mutt Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Our motto is "Rescue … rehome … real love” and we try to live it every day. We rescue animals in need of new homes and loving families. We make sure each of them is spayed or neutered and up-to-date on all routine vaccinations. If other medical care or treatment is needed, we get that for them as well.

We welcome these fosters into our homes and our lives and really get to know their personalities and their needs. Then we make it our mission to re-home them - to place them in the forever home that will be perfect for them. Some of them really need to have another dog companion, while others will do well being an 'only pet.' Some love having children to play with, while others prefer being with adult companions. Some do well sharing a home with cats or other small pets, while others .... well ... no so much. And the only way we know this is by living with them!

We also work to educate and encourage other pet owners to spay or neuter their animals to

a) help their pets lead longer, healthier lives, and
b) help reduce the numbers of homeless and unwanted animals in our Central Virgina communities.

It is such an easy thing to do! Not only will it benefit your pet and your family, but it will reduce the numbers of wonderful, adoptable animals that are euthanized every year. Please be part of the solution.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are an all volunteer, home-based rescue organization. We do not have a public shelter facility, so most our meet-and-greet appointments are scheduled for Saturdays between 10 am and 4 pm and Sundays between 12:30 pm and 4 pm. Of course, we will always try to be as flexible as possible when scheduling meet-and-greets.

Please check our Calendar of Events regularly for other opportunities to meet our pups.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process:

Step 1: Complete the Adoption Application. You can complete the form online - go to the 'Forms/Applications' link on the left side of the page. Then click on 'Fill Out' and you will be taken directly to the form. Once submitted, it comes directly to us.

Step 2: We will review completed applications, do reference checks and home visits as needed. Please remember that adopting a pup is making a commitment of 10-15 years, so we do not take any shortcuts in processing applications. It is our responsibility to place these pups in the very best homes we can possibly find for them. Application processing can usually be done in 7-10 days. Sometimes it may take longer if we have a problem reaching your references or finding another rescue to do a home visit for out-of-town or out-of-state adoptions.

Step 3: When your Adoption Application is approved, we will schedule a time for you to meet the pup that just might be the newest member of your family.

***Please remember that we are an all volunteer, home-based rescue organization. We do not have a public shelter facility, so all meetings for potential adopters and fosters are done by appointment only. Most of our volunteers work full-time jobs, so most of our appointments are scheduled for Saturdays between 11 am and 4 pm and Sundays between 1 pm and 5 pm. Of course, we will always try to be as flexible as possible when scheduling meet-and-greets.***

Step 4: After the meeting, if everything seems to be a perfect match, the final step is the signing of the Adoption Contract, payment of the $150 adoption fee, and taking your new family member home.
