Amelia is a beautiful German shepherd with the intelligence, loyalty, and charm this breed is known for. She loves to cuddle with her people, and is always taking in the world around her.

This gorgeous girl was born with a congenital nerve condition that makes it difficult for her to use and control her back legs. She was found struggling on the streets of Detroit, likely left to fend for herself by a breeder who knew she couldn’t be sold. When she was rescued, she was severely malnourished and had Parvo, a deadly viral infection.

Luckily, the volunteers at Home FurEver came to her rescue and got her immediately to a vet for treatment. She beat Parvo, and is receiving as much high-quality food as her little belly can hold!

She is loving and curious, often snuggling with her new foster family and exploring her home and yard. She loves her new foster siblings-both with four paws and two! She will need a furever home with children over age 10, and with other dogs who are calm, because of her fragility. We don't know how she is with cats.

While this little treasure has come a long way while in our care, she still has a very long road of recovery ahead of her. She is currently going for rehabilitation sessions and accupunture and is doing very well. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation towards her care and recovery!

Our Adoption Process...

Home Fur-Ever requires all potential adopters to complete an application process. The application is to be completed in person at one of our adoption events, followed by a face-to-face interview with our founder and director. We do home inspections to insure that the home is the right fit for the dog. Please note we really can't drive more than an hour for a home inspection. At this time, we can not accommodate out of state adoptions.
Adoption fees range from $225-$350. Adoption fees help to cover the costs of vet care that each dog receives while in our care.
We require that all puppies are spayed or neutered at six months of age, and will follow up with adopters to verify that the procedure has been competed. Basic training classes are also required for all dogs and puppies.
All bully breed dogs require homes with fully fenced yards to ensure their safety and well-being.

- We ask for your patience as we review your application. Home Fur-ever receives numerous applications and cannot respond to every one individually.

- Approved applicants are based on best fit, not first submitted. HOME FUR-EVER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY APPLICANT, so please understand that it is within our discretion to make those decisions on behalf of our animals.

- OUR ADOPTION EVENTS ARE VERY BUSY so please keep that in mind if you intend to come. You should expect to spend some time there if you are sincerely interested in one of our animals. We have limited manpower and many applicants to screen.

-Due to space limitations, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THE RESCUE YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WILL BE AT THE ADOPTION EVENT (we are oftentimes saving up to 100 animals at a time!) We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

- We ask that you DO NOT contact Petco about our animals. They are kind enough to provide space for our adoption events, but are not involved with our rescue work.

- If a rescue is "PENDING" it is currently in the process of being adopted, but may be available in the future if it is not finalized.

- Keep in mind that we depend 100% on volunteers, most of whom have full-time jobs and families and so we ask for your understanding as we do the best we can in the endless effort to find homes for these deserving animals!
