Amelia's Story

Roll out the red carpet for Amelia! This beautiful girl is a super star!  With her raven colored coat and warm, deep brown doggy eyes, this lady is a looker!  Amelia may not be waiting for her big Hollywood break, but she is looking for her forever home!  Amelia was adopted as a young pup and was sadly returned after two years in the home when her family realized she was not a good fit for their household.  Amelia was understandably heartbroken and confused as to why she was back in our care, but due to her resilience, it didn’t take her long to adjust and she is hopeful that her perfect forever home is out there!  Amelia is as sweet as candy and truly has a heart of gold.  She adores love and affection and could probably spend the entire day receiving head pets and belly rubs!  She is also very fond of her human friends and has a tail that never seems to stop wagging happily!

Amelia would do best in a home with an active and experienced owner and without small children.   Since she is ‘leading lady’ material, she needs a home without other dogs where she can be in the spotlight all on her own.  With her stunning good looks and sweet personality, she wants to be sure all eyes are on her!  She is highly food motivated and would do best with continued training.  No doubt she will take center stage in class and show off her talents!  With all her beauty and talent, Amelia is still a simple girl who loves to play with squeaky toys!  She enjoys spending time chewing on them and even cuddling up in a pile of them when she’s done playing! Yep- it is really cute!  Long walks through the neighborhood would make her day, Amelia loves exercise and she loves people.  She may never leave her paw prints on the Walk of Fame, but she will certainly leave a huge imprint on your heart!  Ready to write Amelia into the script of your life?  Stop by the Lincoln Park Adoption Center and meet this super star!  You’ll be star struck the moment you say hello to her!
