This is Amelia and her story.

She was found sitting in a median between very busy roads. It was a very odd place for a dog. Right after you pass a bridge, busy road, no buildings immediately next to the road. Something about where she was and how she was seemed very troubling.

I stopped and got out of the car. I called her and she immediately run towards me, but she stopped a couple of feet away and started showing signs of extreme submission. The 'don't hurt me' body language. I reached out to touch her and she screamed. The way a dog screams when it is very scared or very hurt. I started petting her gently, and her tail started going and she came closer. She was so happy and relieved for someone to have found her.

Amelia is now spayed, vaccinated, on flea and heartworm preventative, her skin has been treated and she's doing great. The vet took xrays of her limping leg and at some point in her life her leg was broken, nothing was ever done about it and it did not heal. She has been in constant pain ever since. She went through a surgery to help with that and the surgery was successful.

Amelia is such a great dog! She gets along with everyone. She is a total love bug. She loves playing and she can play rough, but when she's done all she wants is to be with her person. She is a very active dog. She needs to learn some manners but that should not be a problem. I started working with her and she knows ‘sit’ command now. She gets very excited at times, but she calms down nicely. She is a young dog and so the energy level is not surprising given her age. She is very food motivated and that helps with training a lot. She is also definitely a people pleaser.

She is a very loving dog that does not have a mean bone in her body, but she is very strong and energetic and she likes to grab things with her mouth (there is not a bit of aggression in it, it’s just how she plays), and so she will do best in a home without small children. She would never do any harm intentionally, but given her strength and energy level she might hurt a small child by accident, just trying to be loving and playful.

Amelia loves to play with other dogs. She also loves to snuggle up on the sofa with you. She loves tummy rub and to snuggle. She wants to be where her person is. She does great in a car and loves going places. She LOVES water and a doggie pool is a must for her. She has been through so much in her short life. Now she is waiting for the happy part of her life to begin.

About Happy Felines

About Our Rescue Group...

Fostering saves lives. It’s as simple as that. Instead of trying to escape the thoughts and images of abandoned and neglected cats and kittens, I decided to face the reality head on. To be proactive. Yes, you cannot save them all. But you can make a difference – a life and death difference – on many cats’ lives by fostering. There are other avenues you can pursue as well, such as networking and volunteering. But fostering is one of the most challenging (I know I’ve had a few ‘failed’ fosters ) but rewarding experiences in anyone’s life.

I am not a big organization, but one person trying to make a difference. You can make a difference too! Adopt, foster, network or volunteer. Whatever you do, do something. Yours actions (or inaction) matter!

Visit my Facebook page and spread the word, network, message me if you would like to adopt or foster. If you do not have a Facebook account email with your questions or contact information.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee is $85 for cats and $115 for dogs and it includes spay/neuter and vaccinations.

Adoption application and contract are required. Adoption application is sent to everyone that is interested in an animal. We reserve the right to deny the application. If approved a home check is required to ensure both the well being of the animal and to make sure that the potential adopter connects with the animal and is willing to make a commitment.
