Facts about Amos

  • Breed: Shar Pei Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
I am Amos and recently moved from Alabama to Georgia when I was rescued from doggie jail by the nice people at Florida Shar Pei Rescue.

I had a rough time at the shelter and seeing the doctor was quite traumatic for me, too. I was so scared because I haven’t been feeling good for a little while now. The doctor said my heart and lungs sound good. He put me on some medicine and Heartguard to treat the worms in my heart. I have something called a bacterial skin infection and an urinary tract infection with bladder crystals. I guess that’s why my skin is so itchy and I have to pee so much. The doctor says I have to take medicine for 2 whole weeks to make these infections go away. My ears are infected, too, and, yep, I am on medicine for that, too. My foster mom says I am still very skinny and need to gain some weight but with all these pills I don’t know if there will be room for food in my belly, too. I need entropion surgery for my lower eyelids and something called neutering. Foster Mom says, “I think that he should be in much better shape in a couple weeks after good food and TLC. I am sure he was very stressed at the city pound.” Boy is she right about that! I am so glad to have been rescued by FSPR. After I get better I am going to be looking for my very own forever home. If you think that can be with you, please fill out an adoption application!

Love, Amos

Our Adoption Process...

We ask for an adoption donation that is used to help offset the medical expenses. We require a home visit and do an adoption agreement for each adopted dog. We also have special bags and booklets that accompany each dog when they are adopted.
