About Amelia

“Hi I’m Amelia, but my foster family calls me Tilley. I’m a big cuddle bug, I love to be be close to my humans and especially when they brush me, it feels so good!

Living in a house is new to me but I definitely enjoy the finer things in life. I love getting regular meals in a bowl and am learning to sit nicely to wait for them. I go outside to go to the bathroom if I’m taken out regularly. I also love playing chase and tug of war with my much smaller dog sister, she’s so surprised how gentle I am with her. I am happy as can be and content with the people and dog in my foster home. They say I am a lovely dog and perfectly well behaved inside the home!

Here is the catch…I walk very nicely with my harness but get much too excited around small creatures especially squirrels and rabbits. When I see dogs on leash I will bark and pull, and it sounds very scary. I’ll need some help to work on this. I am good with dogs with proper introductions, but will definitely need a strong and capable handler and a leash reactivity class to help me work through these challenges.

I would do best in a home with a tall solid fence and secured yard, in a quieter area to help me succeed at first. An experienced family would be ideal, who is up for a longer term training challenge and helping me learn! Once I learn some leash skills, I promise to be the best I can be!

If you want a new adventure buddy who also loves to cuddle- I’m your girl!” – xo, Amelia
