Amber, a 10-year-old retriever/shepherd mix, arrived at Flagler Humane Society in Palm Coast, Florida, after her elderly owner could no longer care for her.
She still has so much love to give if someone will give her the chance.
Adopters should not be deterred by her gray muzzle as she still loves to go for walks and one of her favorite places is the beach.
While not a requirement, she would love to find a family who enjoys playing in the sand and splashing in the water as much as she does.
The sweet girl loves everyone she meets including cats, older children, and even rabbits. The shelter featured her as the “Dog-of-the-Day” and posted, “Amber is housebroken, but doesn’t like crates, walks well on a leash, knows “sit”, “down”, “rollover”, “shake”, and “sit pretty” commands! She would make someone a great companion or family dog. And she loves the beach and water! Come meet her today!”
The shelter has already found loving homes for over 800 pets this year and hopes to do the same for Amber. Learn more about the shelter and see all the adoptable dogs and cats here.
Senior dogs are often passed by for the younger dogs, but they have so much to offer. Aside from their unconditional love, they teach us to slow down and enjoy the little things in life.
