Loving Puppy Survived Parvo, Needs Home

Although precious little Amanda, a Beagle/Italian Greyhound mix, is only 9 months old and weighs a mere 8 pounds, she has been through quite a bit in her short little life.  

Amanda was a stray who ended up in a rural shelter in Georgia but her luck changed when Angels Among Us spotted her and knew this girl need a home.  

Right after she was saved from the shelter, this precious little girl broke with the deadly Parvo virus. She became extremely ill and almost lost her life, but Amanda is a fighter and she was determined to pull through and live.  

Looking at Amanda today, you would never find or see a clue that she has ever had one moment of bad luck. This girl loves every dog she meets and every human, and there are no "strangers" in Amanda's world. She wants nothing more than to be petted and loved on, and gives kisses to everyone. When someone bends down to pet her, she will roll over for her very favorite thing - a tummy rub. 

Since Amanda is still a puppy, she loves to play. Her favorite game is "tug of war" and she plays that game with all her foster siblings, and loves nothing better than wrestling from room to room throughout the house with her favorite foster buddy.

Amanda also loves to cuddle. She cuddles with the other dogs, but her favorite thing is when she can find an empty human lap to call her own. Amanda sleeps in the bed with her foster family, and loves to curl her little body into a small ball against another dog or a human for the entire night. 

Amanda has never barked once in her foster home. She is crate-trained and is working on house-breaking. She is up-to-date on all her shots, has been spayed, and is microchipped.

This is truly a wonderful little girl. The whole world is an exciting place to Amanda, and all people and dogs are her friends. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She's a lover, not a fighter, and spends her time having fun and playing, and enjoying life. She is the ideal dog for that very lucky family who decides to bring this wonderful girl to live with them forever. 

Because Amanda loves to run and play, a nice fenced-in yard would be ideal for this darling girl. Amanda would thrive and do really well in an active family, and she would especially enjoy a home where she has a doggie companion to play with. 

If you'd like further information on sweet Amanda, you may contact her foster, Denise Marshall, by email at Denise@royalspca.com.  If you are interested in adopting this wonderful little girl, please go to Angel Among Us Pet Rescue's website, www.angelsrescue.org, to fill out and submit an application.
