About Amy

Distance: 289 Miles
My name is Amy and I would love to be your snuggle buddy.   Here are some very important things you need to know about her: Amy is a clown - a mix of terrier and something that has BIG ears.  She is 50 pounds of wiggles, love and snuggles.  She is too cute – very loving, very playful and good with other laid back dogs when introduced properly.   Amy is aging gracefully, but just like us, she has some arthritis and sometimes has a little limp.  She can still run for short distances and will still jump/climb shorter fences at will.  She likes to enjoy the fresh air on pretty days but she is an inside girl! She will do well with a forever family that will take on her on walks and spend time playing with her. She still has playful energy, but she really loves to get in your lap!   She is so sweet and adorable, spending time with her is easy to do!  Could you be her forever family?Please read the rest of Amy's bio below so you get to know this sweet girl!If you think Amy might be the perfect pup for you, please go to, click on Forms/Application and complete your adoption application online.  You can also read about the entire adoption process there!   Approximate age/birthdate:  February 2008 ... she's a sweet senior girlWeight/size: 45-50 lbsHousebroken:  YES - as long as you do your part taking her outside   Crate trained:  YESPersonality:  happy, loving, playful, wants to make you happy   Energy level:  low-to-medium (lots of low-key snuggling)Fenced yard required?:   YES - she is very curious and will wander if not contained.  The neighbor's cats would also be at risk if she is not fenced in. Does he/she jump fences?  In her younger days she could jump a 4' fence with no effort.  Arthritis has slowed her down, but she should never be left outside alone.  She does well on a zip line for a reasonable/short period of time or in a kennel with a solid roof on it (not an A-frame tarp roof)   Leash walk:  YES – still very strong and still pulls but will improve if walked consistentlyObedience training:  Knows ‘sit’ and ‘off’ – very smart and she really wants her people to be happyRiding in vehicles:  RIDES OK       Spayed/neutered:   YESUp-to-date on routine vaccinations:   YESMicrochipped:   NO (microchip can be provided)Social with other dogs:  YES - she is a submissive personality and is sometimes bullied by stronger personalities.

If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed. Please feel free to email if you have additional questions.
