Amber is a sweet and loving 47-pound 5-year old who likes to snuggle up on your lap! She came in as a stray and it has taken her some time to get used to shelter life. She’s on the right path to becoming more trusting and relaxed.

Amber needs a family that has dog-ownership experience. She’s working on her leash training and how to stay calm when passing other dogs. Amber loves playtime in our training room and to hang out in the backyard. She’s curious about cats, but should be the only pet in a home for now.  Amber should be in a home without young children.
