Hi … my name is Trace and here are some things you need to know about me! After you read through my bio, if you think I might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete your adoption application online.
I AM A SUPER SENIOR!
Trace is a handsome hound mix boy. His mother was a small redbone hound mix and dad must have been really handsome, too. True to his hound heritage, Trace's housebreaking and crate training has been challenging. He will happily stay in his crate, but he does still have occasional accidents if left for too long. His belief is 'hounds go wherever they want to.'
Trace has a little bossy streak and can misbehave unless he’s corrected. He listens well but has a short memory. Trace definitely needs a fenced yard to play safely in and a family who will work with training him, playing with him, and just loving him. He is such a sweet boy … very easy to love! With a strong, consistent person to guide him, he will be a great addition to the family. We think with proper guidance he would be OK with doggy siblings, but he would be happy being an 'only child.'

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 Trace 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
