Meet Amanda!  Amanda is around 2-3 years old and a happy, super-sweet girl!  She is just a love.  She thinks she is a big lap dog and will crawl into your lap to give kisses.  We love this girl!  She is incredibly huggable and does very well with other dogs.  Can't say enough nice things about this little mini-hippo. :-)   

Although she was abandoned through no fault of her own that doesn't seem to bother Amanda and she has a lovely demeanor.  This diamond in the 'ruff' is ready be your new best friend...she can't wait to get out of the shelter and start a new, better life with someone who loves her!        

Amanda says...Hi there, everyone!  They call me Amanda, and they say that I'm just the cutest, sweetest, most loving girl EVER!!  Do you have room in your heart and home for a pup like me??  I have a beautiful, unique, milk-chocolate colored coat that is super-soft…great for everyone to pet me (hint hint). :-)  I weigh about 60-65 pounds (not TOO big), which makes me a perfect size for an apartment, house or condo!!  They say I am probably some sort of amstaff/dogue de bordeaux/french mastiff mix…all I know is that I'm a happy pup and I love to play, get lots of pets, and give lots of doggie kisses!  

Read below for more info on Amanda, and email ASAP if you're interested in her!  

Amanda says:  I don't know why, but somehow I ended up in this scary shelter.  It was dark, cold and really loud in there and I kept waiting for a nice person to come get me.  But each time I saw someone, they would walk right by and I was still by myself. :(   Luckily, the shelter staff say I am one of their favorites, and they hope that someone will step up and adopt me very SOON so I can get out of here and to safety in a loving home!   

Don't you think I would look really cute as your new Facebook cover photo, romping around in the sunshine and rolling in the summer grass!?  And how I'd love to snuggle up by you after a long hike.  I just really want to run, play, then snuggle, nap and dream of all the adventures we'll have together.  I would just LOVE trips to the dog park and hikes in the woods -- I love to discover new things!  

Amanda is an awesome dog and makes friends with everyone she meets!  At around 2-3 years old, she will need lots of exercise to stay happy and healthy.

Amanda's new person or family will need to make sure she gets lots of socialization and playtime with other dogs and people to keep up the good social skills she has already!  And like all dogs we adopt out, she'll need to go to obedience classes to build a strong bond with her people, and help her become a well behaved companion or family member.  Amanda seems to like all the people she meets, and can't wait to wiggle her way into your heart and home.

Like most young dogs, Amanda may need a refresher on her house training when she gets to a new home.  She will also need to go to obedience school so she can continue to be a well-socialized dog! 

The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery.  If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and e-mail it to at Sheila at ASAP!

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a group of highly motivated and highly dedicated volunteers. We spend countless hours making sure that wonderful dogs find loving forever homes. We don't do it for money -- we do it for the joy a dog can bring to its new family; we do it for our love of animals; and we do it to save lives!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
