Facts about Amber

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Amber's foster mom describes Amber as “amazing and special.” She is as beautiful as her name implies with a stunning golden brindle coat and golden eyes to match. She has a sturdy, healthy body and a sharp mind. Although sometimes mistaken for a cow (she LOVES to graze on grass), she is 100% dog.

When you first meet Amber, she may seem like an old dog trapped in a young dog body. She initially comes across as very serious, shy and aloof. After living in a kennel for over a year, Amber is understandably hesitant to trust people. But once you get to know her, you will learn that Amber is actually very smart, highly trainable, and already knows some basic obedience skills. Amber is not afraid to work for her human’s approval. She is very connected to her humans and shows immense loyalty, making sure she knows where her humans are at any given moment. Once the right family opens their home and hearts to Amber and gives her time to trust again, she will pay that family back in spades with loyalty, trust and affection.

Amber may be okay in a home with another male dog who is very submissive. However, we think she will really thrive in an environment where she could take the time to just relax and keep all the human attention to herself. Amber walks well on a leash, and is not reactive to other animals while on her walks.

Our beauty is no princess... she is a rough and ready Tomboy who doesn't mind playing hard or getting dirty. Her other favorite things to do: play fetch with a ball and play in the pool.

About Jason Debus Heigl Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was founded by Nancy and Katherine Heigl to celebrate the memory of a wonderful son and brother. In 1986, Jason was killed in a car accident. He was only fifteen years old.

Throughout his brief lifetime Jason loved all animals, especially dogs and cats and monkeys. He lived his life extending compassion and kindness to all creatures great and small. This foundation is his legacy.

The mission of the JDHF is to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference, and ignorance. Our primary focus is the greater Los Angeles area, for now.

In pursuit of our mission, the JDHF routinely funds:

Our internal rescue group, the Heigl Hounds of Hope.
Other qualified rescue groups, via Networking donations.
The Transport of LA shelter dogs to states with great demand.
Free Spay Neuter procedures for the pets of qualified caretakers.
Compassion Education programs.
And we thank you for your support.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are located in the Los Angeles area and we do adoption events around town. Just check out our website to find out where and when!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is a couple of steps.

We ask you to begin by filling out an adoption application to express your interest in any of our animals. Once we receive the application and looked it over, we will contact you to answer any questions you may have about the pet and set up a meet and greet with the 4 legged friend you are interested in.

At that point, if you are interested in moving forward with the adoption, we will conduct a home check to make sure everything's good. We will ask you to sign an adoption agreement and ask for a donation of $150 for the adoption process.
