My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Hi … my name is BeBe! Please read my bio to find out everything you need to know about me.  

If you think I might be the perfect pup for you, go to and complete the adoption application online.

BeBe is a great example of an amazingly wonderful dog with some special needs who needs a hero to be her forever person.  

BeBe is a very sweet, shy, stunningly beautiful girl with lots of love to give!  She does great in her foster home, but when she was adopted several years ago, she got loose from her new owner after just a couple of days, and she was 'on the run' for a week before she could be trapped (and returned to AAMR).  She tries so hard to make everyone happy, and she loves having a routine so she feels safe.  BeBe loves people and finding the right people, ones who understand her potential to be a 'flight risk' and who will give a little 'extra' to make her feel safe and secure, is our mission. 

Her new home MUST have a physical fence to contain her.  She always uses nice house manners and is definitely an 'inside girl'. The gorgeous pup with the soulful eyes is a smart and snuggly girl!  She loves attention and lots of 'good girls' and once she bonds with you, she will be the most loyal friend you will ever have.  Could she be a snuggly addition to your family?

Approximate age/birthdate:  ~ December 2013

Weight/size:  ~ 55-60 lb 
Housebroken:  YES as long as you do your part and take her out regularly
Crate trained:  YES … she finds her crate to be a safe place

Personality: a bit shy until she knows you, happy, sweet, loving

Energy level:  Medium … she’s a sweet girl, and doesn't know what 'senior' means
Fenced yard required?:   YES - no exceptions - a physical fence (no underground or wireless) … she absolutely needs a place to explore and play safely off-leash.  She is timid and a definite flight risk. It is also necessary to keep the neighbor's cats and the community squirrels safe!

Does he/she jump fences?  NO (but probably could if she got spooked)

Leash walk:  YES

Obedience training:  Knows ‘sit’

Riding in vehicles:  RIDES OK but does get a little nervous at first 
Spayed/neutered:   YES

Up-to-date on routine vaccinations:   YES

Microchipped:   YES

Social with other dogs:  YES – at least with her foster siblings.  She (as with any dog) should be properly introduced to any new dogs before being allowed to run free with them
Social with cats:  NO CATS … she barks at them and we are sure she would chase them

Good with children: She seems to be OK with older children as long as they are calm and gentle with her.  Again ... proper introduction is the key.

Adoption donation:  $175

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 BeBe 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.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The adoption process:
Step 1: Complete the appropriate Adoption Application. There are different applications for dogs and cats. You will find the form online Then click on 'Fill Out' and you will be taken directly to the form. Once submitted, it comes directly to us. You should get a message immediately if your application has been successfully submitted
Step 2: Members of the Adoption Committee thoroughly review completed applications and do reference checks. Please remember that adopting a pet 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 pets in the very best homes we can possibly find for them. Application processing can usually be done in 7-14 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: After reference checks are completed and your Adoption Application is tentatively approved, we will schedule a home visit and a time for you to meet the pet that just might be the newest member of your family. We will ask that all family members be present for the meet-and-greet ... including all other family pets.

Please be aware that we generally limit adoptions to families within 75 miles of our location in Huddleston, VA. There may be exceptions made, but application processing for remote adoptions usually takes longer because we must find another rescue to help us by conducting a home visit. This is required.

**Please remember that we are an all-volunteer, home-based rescue organization. We do not have a public shelter facility, so all home visits/meet-and-greets for potential adopters and fosters are done after applications are approved and by appointment only. Most of our volunteers work full-time jobs, so the majority of our home visits are scheduled for Saturdays between 10 am and 2 pm and Sundays between 1 pm and 3 pm. You can also meet adoptables at our public events noted on our website. Of course, we will always try to be as flexible as possible when scheduling meet-and-greets.
Step 4: After the home visit, if everything seems to be a perfect match, the final step is the signing of the Adoption Contract, payment of the adoption donation, and welcoming your new family member home.

Please note that completing the online application does not obligate you to adopt a pet, nor does it guarantee that your application will be approved. AAMR reserves the right to decline any application without providing a reason. Please understand, also, that often there are multiple applications for one pet and it is the responsibility of the Committee to find the best fit for each pet.

Go meet their 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.

More about this rescue

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.
