   Leave a bone for Amos

Gamos, Little Critter, Little Monster, Little Beast, Amos Puppy, Amie, The Beast

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog-dog rescue

June 13th 2000

He likes following us around the house and watching us doing laundry, cleaning, and cooking. Amos also likes to cuddle with us on the couch and bed.

Amos does not like long car trips (he gets car-sick). He does not like cats.

Favorite Toy:
Kongs, "Mr. Star" (a fluffy toy) Nylabones.

Favorite Food:
Anything that is salty and/or crunchy. We feed him "Wellness" brand Fish and Sweet Potatos dog food.

Favorite Walk:
Around the hood (he also likes Lake Merritt and 4th Street in Berkeley).

Best Tricks:
He can eat a small bully stick in 3 minutes flat. He also knows how to open the fridge, so we had to lock it.

Arrival Story:
Amos was abandonded outside of a pet store, and found by a truck driver. He was taken to a local shelter. We were told that he cried for two weeks, from missing his family. His "family" eventually found him at the shelter, and he was very excited to see them. They said they would come back the next day to pick him up. They never did. He was likely close to being put down, since he is very shy, and thus didn't call too much attention to himself from potential suitors. He then adopted us, when we first saw him at an "adopt-a-pet" sort of event. His future papa set next to him, and he put his little head down on his papa's foot as if to say, "please take me."

Amos is the most wonderful creature. He wants nothing more than to spend time with his new human family! His mama and papa walk him and train him and give him lots of loves. When mama or papa come home, he does his happy dance and runs around the house with his favorite toy, and his tail spins around in a circle. He sleeps with us, and sometimes puts his head on the pillow right next to ours.

Forums Motto:
I just want to snuggle with mom and pop

Pappa says "speak!" I don't know what that means, so I just look at him. Pappa says "speak" again. So I lay down for a belly rub. Pappa rubs my belly. "Speak" means lay down for a belly rub!
