Meet Ambrose, a 2 year old Boxer mix rescued from a high kill shelter in North Carolina. Ambrose used to be tied by a huge chain to a dog house outside and was hardly ever given food or water. When the animal control officers took him, he was skin and bones. He was held in the shelter for 6 months as evidence for a cruelty case. Ambrose was finally released to be rescued in October and was brought north to Zoe’s House right before Hurricane Sandy. Ambrose had never lived in a home prior to being rescued and has done very well with adjusting to his new life. He went from being chained to a dog house with little to no human interaction, to living in a home with 3 other dogs, 2 human children, and 2 adults. Ambrose has taken to the life quite well! He was very nervous at first, but has been gaining confidence every day. Ambrose was also scared of his 5 year old human foster brothers in the beginning, but has been warming up to them pretty well. He still gets skittish around them at times and for this reason, we feel he would be happier in a home with older children, ages 10+. Ambrose’s foster canine siblings include a female Miniature Pinscher, a female Greyhound mix, and a male pit bull. Ambrose and his foster brother, Captain, are not overly thrilled with each other (though they have been photographed snoozing away on the couch together!), so we feel Ambrose would be better suited to a home with no other dogs or female dogs. Ambrose loves to play with his canine companions, but still hasn’t really learned his limits and can get carried away at times. He loves people, especially his foster mom, and needs lots of positive attention. He is very eager to please, but didn’t come from a very good background, so he’s still adjusting to his new life and will require a lot of patience. Ambrose is housebroken, crate trained, and has been neutered by a new procedure called zinc neutering.
