*****IMPORTANT: Amelia is NOT AVAILABLE for adoption at this time, and will NOT be present at HFE events as of yet. She is healing and recovering in a loving, long-term foster home. Thank you!*****
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!
