Merle likes to play with rope toys, fetch, and do other energetic activities. She's a little hesitant when meeting new people, it doesn't take long to get into her good graces, however. She is adorable and fun to be with once she warms up. With other dogs, she can come on a little strongly, but she really just wants to play and will take correction from them. Merle has a tendency to guard bones she loves so she needs to not have high valued items (i.e. rawhide). She only gets treats that she can eat within a few seconds/minutes. She's the sweetest, happiest, most fun-loving dog. Born in 2015, she's silly, playful and active. She will only be placed into a home with older children and someone who has doggy experience and will work with her so she can learn basic obedience and manners. But she is great with other dogs and makes a wonderful playmate for those bigger than her size. Do you have room in your heart for Merle? If so, she would love to meet you.

About Amber's Angels Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Amber's Angels takes in animals that have been relinquished, hoarded, abused and or neglected or animals that need rescue from high- kill shelters down south. Rescued pets are medically treated, behaviorally evaluated socialized, trained and loved as we search for well-matched homes. Adopters receive their pets’ medical records, training plans and pet food to help make transition into their new homes a smooth as possible. On going medical and training advice is provided for the lifetime of the pet.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Bringing your pet home for the first time:
1. Make sure you obtain all of your new pets’ medical records.
2. Bring the appropriate size collar, leash or crate for your new pet to go home.
3. Decide where your pet will stay in your home and purchase any gates or barriers you may need. You should provide one litter box per cat the bigger the better. Cats seem to prefer unscented sand litter or cheap clay litter.
4. Obtain the appropriate-sized crate for your new dog. Crates should be large enough for the dog to be comfortable in for several hours. Put a non-tip water bowl and a soft, absorbent blanket in the crate.
5. Communicate with Amber's Angels to make sure you get the same food and treats the pet has been eating. *Changing diets quickly can cause dietary upset*

To Get Off to a Great Start:

Put a cozy bed for your pet in every room. Pets are much more likely to keep off of furniture if they have attractive alternatives.
Until your pet learns your house rules, don’t give him or unsupervised access to rooms with rugs, sofas, beds or any other furniture. Please remember to increase your pet’s roaming privileges slowly, room by room (going from restriction to complete freedom can set a pet up to fail.)

The first few days you may want to leave a short leash on your dog incase the dog tries to hop up on furniture or tries to get away from you. Use dog crates and gates to confine your new dog when home alone until his house manners earn him unsupervised freedom.
1. Provide plenty of “legal” things for your dog to chew. If he has attractive toys and bones of his own, he’ll be much less likely to chew on your things.
2. If you are bringing a kitty home; provide a variety of scratching posts and perches—cat trees can be very helpful.
3. Be sure to give your dog at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise—running, fetching, playing or swimming—each day. A tired dog will be much less likely to engage in destructive behavior. A busy dog will be much better behaved, too. Consider feeding your pet in food-puzzle toys when he has to stay home alone. They are also known as interactive toys. You can find these type of toys online or in your local pet store. If he spends his time working for his chow, he’ll be less likely to look for other ways to alleviate his boredom.

*Depending on the pet it may take them 7-20 days to adjust to their new home*
