   Leave a bone for Amber


Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

September 1st 2006

Chewing, running, sleeping, jumping, food, and lovins.

Being squeezed and poked at excessively.

Favorite Toy:
Tug toys, Kong treat toy, ball, Moosette (her very first lovee we gave her, which she has since torn to shreds)

Favorite Food:
She loves food of all kinds if you would let her. We sometimes give her yogurt or apple skins as a treat.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, any time. Just keep moving!

Best Tricks:
Flop. (We tried for "roll over", but the best we get is a flop.) Sit, paw, shake, lay down, and we're working on "crawl".

Arrival Story:
My nephew brought her home one day, and I really didn't want a dog. I had been having dreams of dogs for a few weeks, and my sister reminded me that I always have dreams before something big happens, but I kept trying to deny it. We returned Amber to Animal Friends for them to contact her owner. When the owner never responded, Animal Friends asked us if we would like to adopt her. My husband and girls insisted, and we brought Amber home. She had some aggression issues towards keys and punching bags, but we worked with her to make her feel comfortable. She's been with us for a year now, and I have to say that she's grown on me. Amber is as crazy as we are, and she fits in well. She's no longer emaciated, and we joke that she's not spoiled, she's well loved!

Amber is a boxer mix. We found out that she came from a home where there were approximately 40 dogs, and she was a puppy from a litter then. They adopted her out to a family, and we don't know what happened that she was wandering the streets emaciated when we found her. Animal Friends tried for a while to get in touch with the owner, but repeated calls went unanswered. We adopted her and found out that she was from a house that had boxers, border collies, and American bulldogs, so she is some mix of that.
