About SHELLY

Shelly is a captivating 4-year old, 55 lb. girl who is creamy white with brown speckles on her ears, about 55 pounds, with an endearing face, is very smart, eager to please for a food treat, and would love to be your furever pup! This beauty was taken into the shelter as a stray and did not seem to even understand what a dog bed was, how to walk on a leash, or people who wanted to pet her. New to the park experience, Shelly was fearful of tree trunks and insects that fly and buzz. Now that she’s been in foster for a while, she leaps and prances through the park, enchanted by sights and sounds and sweet-smelling flowers. With time and positive behavior training, Shelly is now house trained, knows her basic commands, and is following leash instructions like come close, look (at my eyes), find it (she searches for the treat tossed on the ground), and other safety tricks to keep her mind on her handler. She responds to the safety command of “here, here!” when off leash, expecting a treat of real meat. She is still working on “stay”, but she understands and follows “wait.” She is also quiet and well-behaved in the home. Since Shelly is very food motivated and eager to eat her meals, she gets fed from food dispensers requiring work or smarts to retrieve the food (puzzle bowls/toys, snuffle mats, etc.). Shelly could be the perfect jogging partner as she has a lot of energy to expend and loves to chase balls. In fact, Shelly’s foster mom thinks she could be part of a family with tweens-teens to be pet by and chase balls and run around with, or adopted by active adults who like to walk or jog in the park. Prior to being spayed, Shelly was downright unfriendly toward other dogs, male or female. With positive behavior training, she no longer readily lunges at them, but instead “looks” at her handler for a treat when she sees or hears another dog. However, Shelly should be your one-and only pet, since she is unpredictable toward other dogs and is also very reactive toward small running animals like cats and squirrels. Shelly may try to chase a small animal she sees from a car window, and if a backyard is part of her furever home, it must be securely fenced in. “Shelly is a sweet, affectionate girl who loves, loves, loves to be petted by people, even those she meets on walks,” says her foster mom. “And people often remark on how beautiful she is.” Shelly is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. To learn more about Shelly, please contact AmsterDog at info@amsterdog.org or fill out our application at www.amsterdog.org/application to get the process started.

Butterscotch is a handsome 6 year old, neutered male Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer Mix who weighs 60 pounds. He’s microchipped and up to date on his vaccines. Butterscotch is a former NYC ACC Shelter dog that’s currently living in a foster home where his behavior has been thoroughly evaluated. Butterscotch is house trained, crate trained, behaves well when left home alone, and knows his commands including: sit, stay, down, paw, and roll over. Butterscotch is a very tolerant, calm, and well mannered dog. Butterscotch is kid friendly and does great with children of all ages. He’s a social dog who makes friends with every person he meets, both men and women. Butters an affectionate dog who loves to give kisses. He will cuddle on the couch with you or lay by your feet while you’re working from home. Wherever you are, he’s likely not too far away! Butters is a big fan of dog toys who loves to play tug a war or fetch, if you’re up for it! He’s also great at keeping himself entertained with his favorite toys such as filled kongs, chew bones, bully sticks, and stuffed squeaky toys. Butters the perfect balance of laid back and active that you could ever ask for in a dog. Butterscotch is a social butterfly who loves attention from all people so he’s very comfortable with strangers approaching him to say hi. While in foster care, Butters often goes to public places such as stores and restaurants. He’s respectful and quiet, so he’s the perfect buddy to run errands with! Butterscotch walks well on leash with minimal pulling and loves car rides. He’ll always be happy to join you on an adventure! Butterscotch does not get along with other dogs. If he sees another dog while out on a walk, he will pull towards the dog but does not bark or growl. His reactions to dogs has improved over time with training but he will not be a dog you can take to a dog park for playtime. Since Butters does not get along with other pets, he MUST be the only pet in the home. Butters is the happiest when surrounded by people so he’s the perfect dog for an active family but will thrive in any household. He is currently located in Syracuse, NY looking for an adopter who can provide Butterscotch a peaceful home with a fenced in yard outside of a hectic city environment. Transportation will be provided to his forever home regardless of distance, so long as the adopter can provide Butterscotch a loving home that fits the above criteria. For more photos of Butterscotch, please check out his photo album: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1dhXg-FxKRR8nTd7RbukyeytIRlyf9ukw. Butterscotch is ready for his forever home so if you’re interested in meeting him, please contact AmsterDog Rescue at 917-689-8414 or info@amsterdog.org.

Name: Ejay Location: Brooklyn, NY Breed: Mixed Breed Approximate Age: 6 years young Sex: Male Weight: 57 lbs Medical History: Ejay is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped. Ejay has a skin condition. 🐶Other Dogs: No ❌ (ok with resident dogs in the home) 😽Cats: No ❌ 🏠House-trained: Yes ✅ ⭐️ Crate-trained: Yes ✅ 👫Kids: Yes ✅ If you would like to foster or adopt Ejay, please contact AmsterDog at 917-689-8414 or info@amsterdog.org. To get the process started, please fill out our online application. Link to our Application: https://www.amsterdog.org/application Owner’s comments: Ejay is not a fan of other animals initially but once he gets used to them, he is ok with them. He is unfriendly towards any animals near the property that he does not know. Ejay is good kids and people in the home but takes a little bit to get used to outsiders and will bark if anyone enters the home. He would be perfect in a quiet home with a dedicated owner who could work with him on his behavioral issues. He is crate and house trained. Ejay has allergies that require either a monthly shot or daily oral medication along with medicated baths. The allergies cause redness of the skin along with itchiness and once the shot wears off, a slight odor indicating he needs his next dose will peak through. He is very respectful and polite to us, and has a very strong trust with me. When he feels uneasy he clings to me for some balance to ensure everything is okay. We would be willing to help with some of the expense of his allergy medications if needed. They arent that expensive, but we know it’s tough right now, and we just want him to have what he needs. show less

Meet JoJo! JoJo is a 2-year-old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix dog who is currently located in Philadelphia, PA. JoJo is up to date on vaccines but AmsterDog Rescue is working on getting her spayed ASAP. JoJo was originally a shelter dog dog that we saved from death row at ACCT Philly shelter back in July 2020. JoJo was adopted by a single male adult living with a male roommate in Philadelphia, PA. Unfortunately, JoJo’s adopter hit rough times during the COVID-19 pandemic and can no longer financially afford to take care of JoJo and made the difficult decision of surrendering this sweet girl to AmsterDog Rescue. We are looking for a foster or adopter that can give JoJo another chance of living a happy life that she deserves! During JoJo’s 2 years of being in this world, she has only known instability and people who gave up on her. JoJo was originally dumped at ACCT Philly Shelter by her original owners. Now her adopter needs to rehome JoJo too at no fault of her own. JoJo is extremely shy and has a bit of “stranger danger” when meeting new people. Completely expected when she loves and trusted people who easily gave up on her! JoJo is now looking for a new stable home that can provide her a calm environment where she can regain her confidence as a dog again! JoJo needs to be the only dog in her new home and no young children since she’s a scared/shy dog who will need her own space and time to adjust to her new home. AmsterDog Rescue will provide free training sessions to the adopter who takes in JoJo to ensure a successful adoption and transition into her new home. JoJo is house trained and knows her basic commands such as sit and paw. She was reported to have lived with cats and 4 children (ages 4,8,10, and 12) in her previous home. Please contact AmsterDog Rescue today at info@amsterdog.org or (917) 689-8414 if you’re interested in fostering or adopting JoJo! show less

This 5 y/o, 50 lb, eager-to-please girl - Lady Ivy - has graduated her long-term training education and is ready to go into a foster-to-adopt or forever home! She would do best in a home with older respectful kids and adults that will give her the structure, rules, and boundaries that she needs to succeed. Ivy also needs to be your only pet. Ivy is a dog that likes to hang around her people. While this is a very endearing aspect of her personality, whomever is interested in her must also understand that she cannot be given too much affection as she was previously suffering from anxiety and it could resurface. She isn't a highly energetic dog and does well with short walks, so if you're looking for a dog who is low maintenance, Ivy is a great choice and overall, a well-behaved and wonderful companion! As part of the extensive training she’s been receiving, her foster/adopters will also receive multiple handling lessons to ensure a smooth transition into her new home and so she doesn’t lose any of the amazing on and off-leash skills that she has acquired. Ivy’s trainers will continue to keep in touch with whomever accepts her into their lives so that her transition and life with her new family will be successful. Until then, Ivy will remain with her trainers where they will continue socializing her and maintaining her obedience. Lady Ivy is spayed and microchipped. If you are interested in learning more about this sweet girl, or would like to arrange a meet and greet, please contact AmsterDog at info@amsterdog.org or complete our online application at www.amsterdog.org/application to get the process started.

Skye Terrier Mix 3 y/o Female 35 lbs Philadelphia, PA HOUSE-TRAINED: YES CRATE-TRAINED: YES HEALTH: VACCINATIONS UP TO DATE PREFERS A HOME WITHOUT: CATS, DOGS, KIDS Skye is a little 3 y/o, 35 lb. female terrier mix that was saved from euthanasia in Philadelphia PA. This little girl is very sweet and super affectionate, knows her basic commands, is house trained, and crate trained. She loves cuddling, playing with her Kong and other chew toys, and peanut butter! *But* she also becomes very protective of her “person” after she settles in and becomes comfortable and has shown to lunge at and nip/bite others as a result. She is also highly reactive to other animals so she must go to a single-pet home, with no children, and a very experienced owner willing to work with her and provide the behavior training and modification she needs. We know there is someone out there who will see this sweet little girl as the diamond in the rough that she is and show her she need not fear being abandoned ever again. Due to Covid, she was not spayed at the shelter and may also need to have a potential hernia repair done at the same time (according to the shelter vet exam). To learn more about Skye, please contact AmsterDog at info@amsterdog.org or fill out our application at www.amsterdog.org/application to get the process started.
