Amber is a real all rounder and would fit in to lots of different types of homes. She could be an only dog or live with canine comapny, with or without children, with a part time worker or someone who is around all day. She is a loving, loyal, comical, beautiful, clever little girl who would make a fantastic companion and playmate. She would fit very easily into most family scenarios. She will be looking for a new home who are active and will take her for lots of varied and interesting walks and also who like to play as Amber loves her toys and tugging. She loves her walks and her recall is good so would love a home where people would take her for a couple of walks a day and give her some off-lead play once she is used to them.

Amber has settled in very well with her canine foster brothers and can be rehomed with other dogs after introductions. She could be rehomed as the only dog if she has plenty of company and someone to play with her. She can get quite excited when she wants to meet another dog but not in an aggressive way she just wants to say Hello and then she is fine. She has met loads of other dogs on walks and at fundraising events and just believes everyone wants to be her friend.

Amber is child friendly and could be rehomed with children over the age of 5 years. She has met children of all ages and been gentle and kind with them.

Amber has not been living with cats however she was cat tested at another foster carers home. She was well behaved and did not show too much interest in them. Amber could be rehomed with cats if very careful introductions were made.

She still needs a little work on her toilet training so someone who would be patient with her whilst she masters this would be great. She is very food-motivated and so very easy to train. Amber does Sit, Paw, Give, Down, Wait. She understands No and is very biddable

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Amber has had a lovely but very tiring weekend "Meeting and Greeting". She's looking so much better now - putting on a bit of weight and her skin is 100% better than her first photos.

She is the prettiest of girls but with lots of terrier spirit and fun - she loves nothing better than a game of tuggy or playing with a ball. She's been fantastic with everyone she's met this weekend - from the smallest toddler upwards, and has loved all the doggy company she's had - her special friends this weekend have been Daisy (Rottie) and Pinder but she remembered Cody yesterday when his new family brought him to PAH.

Amber has now been cat tested and passed with flying colours. The 3 cats were quite comfortable being in the same room as her and Amber was just inquisitive and wanted to play with them. She's such a friendly dog that I think she couldn't believe they didn't want to play with her - after all, she thinks every dog she meets wants to In the end she played with Dublin, the Irish terrier, instead.

She good-naturedly took a few biffs on the nose from the one cat without any retaliation, and sniffed and nuzzled up to one of the others

The one cat that hid from her, Amber just tried to find behind the chair - no attempt to bite and wasn't put off by the cat hissing and snarling at her - Amber's tail just went 19 to the dozen the whole time.

Even when the cats went upstairs and Amber followed them she just walked calmly past them - no aggression or inappropriate interest.

I would say she'd be absolutely fine with a confident cat and confident owners who would introduce them properly and supervise early interaction.
