Amber is a 12 year old lab mix, but you'd never know it! She has the energy of a dog half her age and barely a speck of grey hair (we should all be so lucky!). Amber was turned into a local shelter by her owners after being a part of their family for her entire life. Fuzzy Pawz Rescue hates stories like that so we took Amber (and her sister Koko) into our foster care program.
Amber loves to play ball, and she is very nice about it. She will bring it right back to you and place it gently in your lap or hand. No chasing or playing tug trying to get the ball back with this girl. Amber is great with other dogs and cats, and tries to get her foster brother to play with her all the time, but he's not quite as interested. She bonds easily with all the members of the household, and loves any attention she can get. She's not needy, but she does follow her person around and likes to stay close in sight. She can also be left off-leash in the front yard and will not run away. She's quiet in the car, so much so that you forget she's there. And the only time she barks is when she wants to be let back in the house.
And is she a dream to walk on a leash, never pulling and walking right by your side. She'd be a good walking companion for an older person, because she doesn't tug on the leash so there would be no issues with her knocking someone over on icy streets. Because of her age, she does tire a bit more quickly than a younger dog, and a 3-4 mile walk was close to her limit. But that's the only time her age shows. She's rambunctious and playful, and a delight to have around.
Amber has a ton to offer and will fit perfectly into any home, is she the right fit for you?
Amber is spayed and fully vaccinated.
