Hi … my name is Dillon and here are some things you need to know about me:
We don’t know a lot about Dillon other than that a Good Samaritan took him in to keep him safe after he appeared to have been abandoned on a rural road. His Good Sam said he sat in one spot on the road for several days and appeared to be waiting for his ‘ride’ to come back to get him. After about 4 days, he gave up and went looking for food and water, which he found in her garage!
We are not really sure of Dillon’s breed mix, but he is adorable. He has a dachshund-like body (long and low) with the head of a tiny yellow lab! Dillon really deserves a family who wants to help him develop some confidence and some manners so he can be the lucky dog he is meant to be. He is very excitable and vocal when left alone for too long and will not be the best apartment resident.
Dillon's wish list includes 1) a fenced yard, 2) an active family willing to play with him and teach him how to be the best boy ever and 3) people to cuddle with every day. Could that be you?
Please read the rest of Dillon's bio below so you can learn more about him.
If you think Dillon might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete your adoption application online.
Approximate age/birthdate: ~ early 2015
Weight/size: ~20 lbs
Housebroken: YES ... as long as you do your part and let him outside often
Crate trained: YES
Personality: happy, playful, guarded in new situations, wary of new people and animals
Energy level: medium
Fenced yard required?: YES – he definitely needs a safe place to run off excess energy. Until he has training and will consistently come when called, a fenced yard is required.
Does he/she jump fences? NO
Leash walk: YES
Obedience training: No … but he is a smart little guy and learns quickly
Riding in vehicles: RIDES OK
Up-to-date on routine vaccinations: YES
Social with other dogs: Somewhat ... once properly introduced. He gets excited when meeting new dogs and does not like dogs getting in his face. He will growl if a new dog gets in his face. Once he has time to properly meet a new dog, he generally does fine. He definitely needs some obedience training to polish his meet-and-greet manners
Social with cats: Do not know … has not been around cats. We think he would chase them if they ran, but not sure if he would try to harm them.
Good with children: No Children ... he has nipped at children
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 Dillon 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 email AAMR at email@example.com if you have additional questions.
