My name is Tyson and I would like to be your new best buddy.  Will you give me a chance?


Here are some very important things you need to know about me

Weight/size: 50 – 55 lbs

Housebroken:  YES

Crate trained:  YES but he is not thrilled about going into a crate

Personality:  happy, playful, loving


Energy level:  medium with bursts of high

Fenced yard required?:   YES


Does he/she jump fences?  NO


Leash walk:  YES

Obedience training:  Knows ‘sit’ and ‘off’

Riding in vehicles:  RIDES OK but gets a little anxious at first

Spayed/neutered:   YES

Up-to-date on routine vaccinations:   YES

Microchipped:   YES

Social with other dogs:  YES when introduced properly  ... may be a bit intimidating to very small dogs

Social with cats:  NO CATS

Good with children: Hasn’t been around children while in foster care but he would probably be fine with older children.  With his size and energy he might overwhelm younger children


Adoption fee:  $100


Tyson is just a clown!  He loves to run and play with his foster siblings. Tyson does well with other dogs IF they are properly introduced.  He enjoys having other pups to play with, but he would be fine as an only pet with an owner who spends quality time with him. At the top of his wish list is a fenced yard where he can play safely off-leash.  He will be happiest with an active family who will take him on long walks or runs and who will spend lots of time playing with him.

Tyson is housebroken and crate trained although he really doesn’t like staying in the crate.  He has nice house manners and settles nicely when inside. He will do best with a loving family that will make him an important family member and will take him to participate in all family fun.  He will do well with a family that continues to socialize him with other animals and new people. As with all pups, we suggest that a new family consider taking Tyson to an obedience class as part of their bonding process.  He just needs a family who will love him and spend lots of time with him.

If you think Tyson 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 Tyson 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 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 you can meet our pups at our public events, such as at the Lynchburg VA Petco. Please check our Calendar of Events regularly for other opportunities to meet our pups. Otherwise, we have volunteers bring pups for a home visit after an application has been approved.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process:

Step 1: Complete the online Adoption Application at Once submitted, it comes directly to us. You should get an email immediately saying that your application has been successfully submitted. If you do not get this email, your application did not go through.

Step 2: We will review completed applications, do reference checks and schedule 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 adoptions outside our 75 mile radius from Huddleston, VA..

Step 3: When your Adoption Application is tentatively approved, we will schedule a home visit ... 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 (other than at our public meet-and-greets or other events) for potential adopters and fosters are done by appointment only and after an application has been approved. Most of our volunteers work full-time jobs, so appointments are generally 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 adoption fee, and welcoming your new family member home.
