Hi … my name is Mango Grace! Read my bio to find out everything you need to know about me.
If you think I might be the perfect pup for you, go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete the adoption application online.
If you can't adopt and meet her special needs, you can still help her by sponsoring her extended care with tax-deductible donations designated for Mango Grace's care.
“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”– Orhan Pamuk (author, My Name Is Red) Does Mango Grace speak to you? She is a special gem in need of a special hero.
Mango was a stray who ‘picked’ a family that she found. All the people in the family loved her, but Mango’s high energy and exuberance proved to be too much for their older dogs. Her play style with other dogs is a little rough-tumble and in-your-face, and not all other dogs are OK with that. She does not always meet new people well, but once she trusts you, she is a velcro dog with her people. She loves her current foster mom, but for the first 3 days, she growled at her too. She still needs more socialization before she can be a 'go everywhere' dog.
Mango will enjoy a new family with people who have time to spend with her, who are willing to take her to training, who are willing to make sure she gets plenty of exercise … who are willing to love her and work with her to become the best dog she can be. Could that be you?
Approximate age/birthdate: born ~ April 2015
Weight/size: 45-50 lbs
Housebroken: YES (if you do your part letting her out regularly)
Crate trained: YES
Personality: busy, wary of new people at first, playful
Energy level: very energetic, rough and tumble play style
Fenced yard required?: YES ... a physical fence (no underground/electric fences) No Exceptions. Mango would be a danger to neighborhood cats and possibly small dogs. She has a high prey drive.
Does he/she jump fences? NO (but she could if she wanted to)
Leash walk: YES … high energy so will still pull
Obedience training: Knows ‘sit’
Riding in vehicles: RIDES OK … gets a little stressed at first
Up-to-date on routine vaccinations: YES
Microchipped: NO but a chip will be provided
Social with other dogs: YES but she is selective about her friends and not all other dogs are tolerant of her energy. Slow, proper introductions to any new dogs is a MUST with her. She does not do well with smaller dogs if they are pushy and yappy.
Social with cats: NO CATS … she plays far too rough and has a high prey drive
Good with children: Her energy may be overwhelming for small children. Will be better with children 12 years old and up
Adoption donation: $175
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 Mango Grace 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.
