Amber is a kind, gentle, and lovely 4 year-old Golden Retriever/Boxer mix (or at least that’s our best guess!) girl who came into an overcrowded rural county dog shelter along with her three pups. She has a beautiful soft and wavy coat characteristic of a Retriever and an adorable underbite from the Boxer side of the family. Amber and her pups made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could get lots of TLC in a foster home while searching for permanent new homes. The shelter volunteer raved about what a nice dog Amber is and she has lived up to that billing. Amber has been very friendly with all people that she’s met and gets along well with other dogs too. She has excellent crate manners so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. Amber is VERY strong on a leash though so is definitely going to need work in that area. Using an Easy Walk Harness with her as she works on her leash skills is highly recommended or she will drag you around the block. Amber would love to have a yard with an aboveground fence so she can explore to her heart’s content and then lounge in the sun on the deck or patio. This girl has likely had a rough life in the past and had to raise many puppies. Those days are now behind her and she’s ready to be someone’s pampered pup for a change. She weighs about 40 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Amber. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age.
