Amelia is a one-year-old, forty-eight-pound, American Staffordshire Terrier. Amelia is good with other dogs, mature kids ten and older, and she is not good with cats. We rescued Amelia on her euthanasia date at the shelter and put her into foster where she is coming out of her shell that protected her against abuse. Amelia is learning to trust, gives her foster mom kisses, and is already housetrained. A gentle, low-key dog who is anxious to please. She is heartworm positive, and we are covering the cost to treat Amelia. Amelia's foster tells us "Amelia 's fears dominate her from past trauma, and she would definitely do best in a home that has another dog who would be a comfort to her but who is not a barker (that scares her). She will need a quiet predictable household with someone who is home the majority of the time so that she can learn to trust. She will need a yard since she is learning to walk on a leash but walks to new environments scare her. Amelia is the BEST dog and will make a great pet for someone loving and patient since she is very low key and easy to deal with overall." Apply at crisisdogsnc.org. We reply to completed applications only, not to calls, not to emails, not to instant or private Facebook messages. Excellent vet references and a virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer a fenced yard, but this is not required for all our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
