Sadie is an adorable little girl who came to us when her family had to move.  She was raised with a house full of kids and lots of other dogs around.  She had lived most of her life outside so she had never really been housebroken.  She does well most of the time but does still have an occasional accident.  She is very sweet but very shy and she will hide behind or under furniture.  She will do best in a calm household without a lot of noise and activity.  We think she has had enough of that life!  She loves to get in your lap and she loves to sleep in the bed with you.  She will happily burrow down under the covers and curl up by your knees.


Sadie tested positive for heartworms and she has completed her in-patient treatment and is doing well now on her monthly heartworm preventative.  It will be critical for her to remain on monthly heartworm preventatives to insure her health.


Sadie will be a wonderful addition to the right family.  She will be happiest in a low-key household without a lot of noise and activity usually associated with younger children.  She is very low-maintenance, not a barker or chewer, and she just wants to be loved.  She has a lot of love to give in return and she’s anxious to get started on her new life!


If you think Sadie might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org, click on Forms/Application and complete your adoption application online.

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 Sadie 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 weluvpups@hotmail.com or call 434 841 0411 or 540 297 1590 if you have additional questions.
