Fiona came to us as part a rescue from a serious hoarding case (58 seized) in SW VA. She is just cute as a button and sweet as she can be, but she has not had a lot of the ‘normal’ experiences in life that many pups her age have had. She is happy and loving, 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 very smart and very sweet little girl, and she just needs a new forever family who will love her through all her new experiences in life. Patience will be necessary because she must learn to trust new people and new surroundings. Her natural instinct is to hide from things she isn't familiar with ... but with love and time she comes around.
If you think Fiona 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 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 Fiona 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.
