Facts about Amelia

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
One look at this beautiful little girl you can tell that something is missing in her life. Her personality sparkles with hope that one day true love will knock on her door. Homesick for a place she’s not even sure exists. One where her heart is full & her soul understood. A place where she desperately wants to be someone’s little princess.

Give this little pittie some time to emerge from her shell. Reassure her that from now on life will be beautiful just like she is. Amelia is a very calm, quiet & laid back pup who’s happy just to be by your side. Once you have met her comfort levels she is the biggest cuddle bug you will ever meet. She will sit pretty leaning up against you with a smile that radiates from ear to ear which is simply contagious. Her loyalty is unmatched, her love ever flowing & her affection given freely.

Among Amelia’s interest are playing ball & spending time with you. Breathing in the fresh air seems to makes her feel free of worries. One of her intimate secrets is her love for laser pointers. She simply can’t get enough of that little red light that moves sooo quick cross the floor! Like most pups Amelia would benefit from taking some basic obedience courses. She’s not very fluid in her commands but does know the meaning of sit. Devote some time to helping her understand & the possibilities are endless. She wants nothing more than to make you proud & her efforts will prove to be successful. Another great thing about Amelia is she’s house broken.

Amelia is looking for amazing new parents who will be patient, kind, caring & loving. Unfortunately she was probably never socialized when she was younger so she prefers to be your one & only furry love. More comfortable with adult companionship she would thrive in a home without little kids. Looking for a fairy tail life with all the comforts of home. Hoping to find her safe haven where she will be well taken care of & showered with attention like every pup should. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy, when skies are blue. You’ll never know dear, how much I love you. Please adopt my sunshine today! All you have to do is come down to the shelter to meet her & you too will find your heart glowing with love.

Note: As with all of our dogs, we strongly recommend obedience classes for new owner and dog to create a life-long bond with the adopted dog based on trust, respect and rewarding training experiences. We are offering dog training classes through FMAS Wagtime Dog Training. You can check out more information at We can help you train practical skills you use every day with positive reinforcement training. Our shelter dogs are strays and we observe and assess their behavior at the shelter which may be somewhat different in a home environment. In addition dogs adopted from the Manchester Animal Shelter are spayed/neutered, microchipped and have received their Rabies and distemper vaccinations as well as other necessary medical care such as flea treatment. All dogs are also heartworm tested. Some prudent care such as heartworm medication is not provided at the shelter and should be taken care of at the earliest convenience upon adoption.

About Friends of Manchester Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

We believe all animals are deserving of life, respect and care. Our goal is zero-population-growth through spay/neuter programs and services that focus on education, medical care, fostering and adoption. Friends of Manchester Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization which started in 1996. The shelter takes in homeless, abused, and abandoned animals in the city of Manchester. We provide shelter, medical care, and spay/neuter to every animal that comes through our doors. In operation for nearly two decades, the shelter has helped provide care and find loving homes for over 20,000 animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Both dogs and cats and other pets we may have available for adoption can be met at the Friends of Manchester Animal Shelter at 490 Dunbarton Rd in Manchester.
