My story

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

Hi … my name is Lacey! Please take a minute to read my entire 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.

Sweet Lacey … the beautiful little lady who had some rough times in her young life, all the while showing nothing but sweetness and love to people helping her get healthy again.  In January 2022 Lacey was a young mom with 3 young puppies, and she weighed barely 25 pounds. Fast forward to March 2022 and after lots of TLC and lots of extra meals, she had blossomed into a 43 pound beauty, still giving kisses to everyone she sees!

It has been such a joy watching this sweet girl get stronger by the day.  She is such a gem, and she is going to be an amazing addition to some very lucky family.  If you love boxers and their silliness, she just might be the girl for you.  She is a happy goofball who really does spread sunshine wherever she goes!

Things Lacey would love to have in her new forever home:

    People who would love her unconditionally and who would let her be a lap dog.

    A physically fenced yard where she could run and explore.  She is quite an athlete and needs plenty of exercise to keep her happy and healthy.

    A person who would take her to basic obedience class so she could show how smart she is and so she could have a great socialization experience.  Going to class together is a great bonding time for a pup and her person.

Approximate age/birthdate:  ~Feb 18, 2021

Weight/size:  43 lbs

Housebroken:  YES as long as you do your part and take her out often and on a regular schedule.

Crate trained:  YES

Personality: sweet, loving, silly, playful, happy                

Energy level:  medium with spurts of high … she is pretty calm inside but she can run like the wind and jump like she has springs on her feet

Fenced yard required?:   Definitely preferred.  She will love leash walks with her person, but she will also enjoy the freedom to run around off-leash inside a fenced yard.

Does he/she jump fences?  She has not … but she probably could.  It would not be wise to leave her outside in a fenced yard alone because if she got bored, she might start looking for a way to get out and find new friends.

Leash walk with manners:  YES she actually walks nicely unless she sees something she wants to chase or get to

Obedience training:  Knows ‘sit’.  She would be a star in an obedience class.  She learns quickly.

Riding in vehicles:  RIDES OK     

Spayed/neutered:   YES

Up-to-date on routine vaccinations:   YES

Microchipped:   YES

Social with other dogs:  YES, but she will react if another dog gets in her face or gets ‘snarky’ with her - especially small, yappy dogs.  As she becomes a 'teenager' she is getting a little testy with smaller animals.  She would like being an only dog.

Social with cats: Has not been around cats in foster home, but we feel sure she would be happy to chase any cat that ran.  Not sure if she would intend to hurt them, but a home with no cats would be better.

Good with children:  Will probably be best with respectful, calm children ages 10 and up.  Her size and energy might be overwhelming for younger/smaller children. 

Adoption donation:  $250

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 home visit/meet-and-greet to see if Lacey 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.
