This sweet boy has spent most of his life in rescue and we don't understand why.  He is a great little guy.  He has known lots of love because he has lived in foster homes with families, but they were never HIS family, although everyone at AAMR loves him.  He is not a demanding guy, he just really wants to be loved!

Sammy is a really nice boy and he will thrive with an active family that will take him along wherever they go.  He would love to go hiking and camping and spend time with some people who would love him and spoil him.  He is very smart and needs a family who will provide structure and positive-reinforcement obedience training for him.

If you think Sammy might be the perfect pup for you, please go to, 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 Sammy 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 protected] if you have additional questions.
