Okay, so I think its necessary to get something clear right away. I'm a boy. I know I have a girly name and I have registered my complaint with GPG's Dog Naming Committee, but instead of complaining, I've decided to embrace it. My name actually means 'new beginnings' and that's exactly what I'm looking for.

Hello, I'm Amaryllis and I have A LOT of love to give. I mean, A LOT. My friends say that I give the best kisses but that's probably because I give THE MOST kisses. What can I say? I love people! I want to sit in their laps and just give and receive love. I'm just a lovable guy. Now, I know that I love people, but I am not too sure about other dogs, so a home without other dogs would be best.

So who is looking to add a big lovable lug to their family? Come on...you can even rename me so I have a boy's name...HA!

If you're interested in adopting Amaryllis, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, here. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Further, because 'pit bull terrier type dog' is not a breed we can list and because this dog has a blocky head and other characteristics that make the public perceive him/her as a pit bull, we are listing him/her as a pit bull mix. However, we do not know his/her actual genetic makeup. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you find an animal that you are interested in, submit an adoption application through our website and we will send your information to the foster family. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit.

Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued.
