Hi … my name is Gwen 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!
Gwen came to AAMR as part a rescue from a serious hoarding case in SW VA. She is beautiful and sweet as can be, even though she can be a little shy when you first meet. She is happy and wants to be loved, but before coming into rescue she had never done simple things like going outside to go potty or to play or like walking on a leash. She is a smart and loving little girl, and she really deserves a new family who will love her forever. Could that be you?
Approximate age/birthdate: born ~2011
Weight/size: around 12 pounds

Crate trained: Mostly … she will have accidents if left too long

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 Gwen 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.
