found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Amelia is a very sweet, people-loving older puppy. Amelia is 8 months old. She is a great pyrenees mix. She is fully housebroken and working on her basic commands- she is very food motivated, which assists with training. Amelia adores people and would be a wonderful companion for adults and older children. Her sweet face and temperament have made her many friends.
Amelia loves car rides, walks, hikes, and running- she is a very active dog, but provided with enough exercise she is a calm and wonderful companion. She does not fetch but enjoys tug of war.
Her favorite thing (aside from a long walk) to do is find her favorite bone, preferably filled with peanut butter, and settle in for a good chew. She is mostly past the puppy chewing phase, but will chew wooden items that she is able to access. She is crate trained and will settle into her crate for the night on her own. She does bark and would be a good watch dog, but she does not bark excessively and will settle fairly quickly.
She is spayed, current on all vaccines, and has a microchip.
Amelia is leash reactive and responds strongly to other dogs when on a walk or when she sees them from a vehicle. Off leash, or after being able to be introduced to most dogs, she just wants to run and play with them. However, her family must be willing to work to correct this behavior, as she is very strong and her display can make other people with dogs nervous. Amelia probably would do very well in a home with another dog to play with and is respectful of older dogs. She is fascinated by cats and wants them to play, but maintains a healthy distance. She is very interested in birds and squirrels but does not seem to have an overly strong prey drive.
Although very eager to please, Amelia also tests her limits frequently, and any children in the home should be old enough to be able to actively participate in training
.**Amelia has a sponsor to help pay most of her adoption fee to help her get adopted!**
If you are interested in meeting this dog, please submit an application, which can be found on our Petfinder main page under our rescue name. We will conduct a phone interview, check references and then schedule a home visit. This helps us to match a dog with their potential adopter. The adoption fee is $400.00 for adults and $450.00 for puppies under one year which includes spay/neutering if older than five months of age, up-to-date age appropriate vaccinations, flea/tick & heartworm preventative and a health certificate. We foster our dogs in homes, not in shelters. This allows us to get to know the dogs temperaments in order to match them to a home. This also allows us to get the dogs ready to live in their forever homes! All dogs coming from the south have been quarantined and vetted before traveling to New England!
