Hi … my name is Beau! 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 www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete the adoption application online.
Beau is a wiggly, curious, cute, and sweet Bichon Frise boy who likes to play and cuddle and give kisses and eat treats! This little man came from a home with more than a few other dogs and at least one person who loved him. True to his breed, Beau is energetic, smart, and will be a great little companion … and he needs a loving pet parent who will give him rules and boundaries and lots of positive reinforcement! You can often see the curiosity (and maybe mischief) in his eyes, and there is a real smile on his face when he is happy!
Beau would love to have a fenced yard to play in and maybe even another small dog to play with. One of his least favorite things is being left alone!
Bichons require both daily/weekly brushing at home and at least monthly professional grooming to keep their coats healthy and mat-free. By the time they are a year old they have gotten their double coat, soft on top and coarse underneath, and these double coats often require daily combing or brushing. Once matted, those mats are painful to their skin, and shaving them is the only option – as you can see from Beau’s pictures.
Approximate age/birthdate: March 2021
Weight/size: ~14 pounds

Crate trained: YES
Personality: sweet, happy, playful, loving
Energy level: medium with bursts of high
Fenced yard required?: Definitely preferred for fun and his safety. He should never be off-leash outside a securely fenced area.

Leash walk with manners: Working on it … leashes and leash walking seem to be new to him
Obedience training: No, but he seems to learn new things quickly
Riding in vehicles: RIDES OK
Up-to-date on routine vaccinations: YES
Social with other dogs: YES – especially ones closer to his size
Social with cats: Has not been around cats in foster care

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 Beau 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 email@example.com if you have additional questions.
