March 2020: Lexi is now in hospice care due to 'doggy dementia.' Please keep her in your thoughts.
Hi … my name is Lexi 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.
Do you love chocolate? I was born in 2007, and I look like I could have some chocolate lab in the mix. I am a goofball and I have a sense of humor. I’ll do things I know I’m not supposed to do (like trying to steal something from the trash can) and then when Foster Mom catches me I’ll run and hide under the bed. I still love to run and play but since I’ve matured, I’m not as wild and crazy as I was in my youth. I love to stretch out on the sofa and chill. My foster siblings get mad because I really like to lay ON them too. I love to wander outside so I would love to have a new home with a fenced yard, but I can also do some leash walks if you want. I don’t like to spend a lot of time alone and I REALLY don’t want to be alone during a thunderstorm or when there are other loud noises. Yes. I weigh about 50 pounds so I have no reason to be such a chicken, but, oh well … that’s just the way I am.
Speaking of weight … I am a beggar. I will stare at you while you eat and if you try to ignore me, I WILL talk to you … softly at first, but I’ve been known to let out my big-girl bark when I need attention. I do know ‘sit’ and ‘outside’ and I will try to do whatever you want if there is a chance there is a treat for me involved.
Sadly I have spent a lot of my life with AAMR. I love them and they love me, but I really want a family of my own so my foster family can rescue another dog that needs help. I have been adopted twice and returned to AAMR. When I was very young I was in a public pound facility and was rescued by AAMR. Then I was adopted and got returned after more than a year due to some family changes. I got adopted again, but I wasn’t happy being left outside in a pen all day while my new Dad worked, so I kept figuring out how to escape. My Dad wasn’t happy, so he sent me back to AAMR again. I don’t think I’m really so bad and I sure would like to live happily-ever-after with a family who would love me forever.

Note from the AAMR Adoption Committee: 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 and home visit to see if Lexi 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.
