Meet Amelia (foster to adopt)

From her TX foster family and rescue:

Amelia loves everyone she meets, both big and small! She enjoys having a buddy to play with. She loves meeting new dogs and playing in the yard with them. She would enjoy kiddos as well or an active person that will take her on her next adventure. She did great cat testing as well so a home with a kitty friend is also an option.

When Amelia first came to us, we felt she wasn’t thriving and she always looked sad. Our team worked their magic and soon she was coming to the door of her kennel wanting to play, to interact, yet she stayed so thin in spite of good food and extra feedings.

We decided a trip to the vet and blood work was in order and was able to have her seen by our vet the next day. After extensive blood work being done, Amelia was diagnosed with exocrine pancreatic enzyme insufficiency or EPI. In other words, Amelia’s pancreas was unable to make enough enzymes used to digest the fats, proteins and carbohydrates in her food. She couldn’t gain weight because she wasn’t able to absorb the nutrients.

We have since started Amelia on medication that she will need to take for the rest of her life but it has been worth it! Amelia is steadily gaining weight and has a new “pep in her step”! It has been a joy to watch her blossom into a new dog with energy to burn and then lay on our lap on the sofa!

It would have been a shame to not do all we could to find out why she felt bad. We are hoping there is a home for Amelia out there who wants to see her reach her full potential.

She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and preventatives and has been treated for heartworm.

She is part of our foster to adopt program. The rescue will cover her getting vetted by our veterinarians during the foster period, if additional vetting is needed. If it is a love connection the foster gets first dibs to adopt. Please fill out an application or email us at if you are interested in fostering her. Typically the adoption fee is $350 but if you foster and decide to adopt we show our gratitude by providing a $50 discount plus her vetting.
