Facts about Amethyst-Adopted!

  • Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Amethyst is one of Rebecca's litter of 8, born July 23, 2016, in the safety of a foster home. A very pregnant, stray Rebecca was rescued - just days before whelping - while wandering aimlessly in the middle of traffic in a very busy street. Amethyst is the largest female puppy in her litter. She's very playful and extremely smart. More than anything, she wants to be tall...most 6-month-old puppies her size don't like to be carried, but if you ever need or want to pick her up she's glad to oblige. Amethyst will happily play with her siblings, us, our older dogs -- anyone, really, as long as they'll chase her, or play tug-of-war, or blow bubbles for her. She *loves* bubbles. She's crate trained, paper trained, and partially housebroken. She's so curious about everything that she can be a little excitable on the leash (especially in new settings) so allowing a little extra time for walks in the first week in her new home will go a long way toward getting her housebroken quickly. Amethyst knows basic commands (sit, leave it, wait, and play) in both English and ASL (in ASL we use 'drop' for 'leave it'), and is extremely treat-motivated. She LOVES older dogs, and although she is naturally rough-and-tumble she's happy to adjust to a more sedate playing style as long as she can have a little time to run in the backyard or burn off some steam in other ways most days. Amethyst would be the perfect fit for a large family with other pets, or with someone who's active enough to keep her happy.

Please call or email us to confirm that the dog you are interested in will be attending the adoption event.

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!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE!
