Amelia is a 5-year-old, 65-pound chocolate lab mix. A very sweet girl, Amelia loves all people and just wants to be by your side all day. She is low-energy and only requires a few walks a day, which she enjoys. She gets along well with my dogs but really does not interact with them. Amelia ignores the cat. Amelia would be fine in a home as an only dog or with an older or low-key dog.
At this point she still doesn’t play with toys. She knows sit and gives paw and will sit and wait patiently for her food when asked. The only times Amelia gets excited is when it’s time to eat or go for a walk. She needs work with leash walking. At times she is perfectly fine, but other times she pulls for the entire walk. She will pull hard if we encounter another dog and wants to go after squirrels. I have started using a gentle leader, which works great for her.
Amelia does not like the crate but does not need one, as she does nothing wrong. She did have some separation issues in the beginning but has learned to wait if we go out. We have not left her for more than 4 hours. Amelia will do best in a home where her family is home more often than not. Her adopter needs to be willing to work with her as she adjusts to a new environment.
Overall Amelia is a wonderful loving girl. All she wants is to be your loyal companion and be loved in return.
