Amberjack: pint-size pittie with a heart of gold!

Animal ID: 259510

Volunteer: Emily C.

This petite pittie is melting hearts left and right with her sweet & sensitive spirit. Amberjack is more than just a pretty pittie, you see. Yep, she is something very special according to those who know her best. One such admirer of hers is her foster mommy, Emily. (The shelter was a pretty stressful environment for our shy lady, so we placed her in a foster home where she is truly blossoming! Check out her photos at the beach and lovin’ on her BFF foster sibling!)

Here’s some of what Emily has to say about her foster-pup Amberjack, who she’s chosen as her special pick:

What do you like best about AJ’s personality?
“She is so snuggly and loving!”

What first drew you to your pick?
“She is very similar to our own dog: a shy, quiet, reserved momma dog, and the two of them get along really well together. They clean each other, play together, and scratch each other’s hard-to-reach spots. Amberjack would do best in a home with another friendly, mellow dog to hang out with and who can help show her that the world isn’t so scary. :)”

Is there something special about the way your pick looks or behaves?
“She is absolutely adorable. Plus, she is great on leash, has never had an accident in the house, and knows the tricks “sit” and “lay down.” Such a quick learner!”

What is her coolest/silliest/most unique trait?
“When she sleeps, she makes a purring noise. Also, when you stop petting her, she’ll tap you to tell you to keep going. It’s so cute!”

Anything else you’d like to add?
“She has fit into our family so easily, and I know that she will do the same for her forever home!”

Amberjack is available for adoption but currently residing in a foster home. Please call us at (619) 299-7012 to arrange an intro with this sweet volunteer favorite!
