amber-pet-adoptionAdopt-a-Pet.com has recently begun working with PeoplePets.com to raise awareness of animals adoption. Today, we’d like highlight a pet who is looking for a home with the help of PeoplePets.com. Meet Amber, a motherly Staffordshire terrier. Amber was pregnant when her owners left her tied to a fence outside the Humane Society of Garland County in Hot Springs, Ark., in May 2008. She had her babies at the shelter, and took “very good care of them,” according to volunteer Theresa Carter, who says Amber is “a good mother.”

Most of her puppies have found new homes, but 3-year-old Amber remains at the shelter. The “very gentle and loving” pooch enjoys long walks, but would do best in a home without small children or other pets because they frighten her. “She’s a wonderful girl and a staff favorite,” Carter says.
