REQUIRES ANOTHER LARGE DOG IN THE HOME
REQUIRES A DOG-SAVVY PERSON EXPERIENCE WITH LARGE-BREED DOGS
NAME: Amy Santiago
LITTER: Amy Santiago is part of the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" litter.
AGE/GENDER: Estimated 7.20.20, Female
REED: Labrador Retriever mix
TEMPERAMENT: Shy, anxious, sweet, playful with other dogs
WEIGHT: Estimated adult weight 60-80 pounds
HOUSE TRAINING: Not yet! She is a baby so she'll need a consistent schedule with multiple opportunities daily to go outside while she works on it. Puppies should not be considered reliable in regard to housetraining until 6-12 months of age. They're a lot like toddlers, who require diapers!
CRATE TRAINING: Good, she's young and trainable!
OTHER DOGS: Good! She requires another dog in the home for her emotional well being.
CATS: Maybe not.
CHILDREN: Best in a home without children due to her anxiety and lack of socialization.
ADOPTION DONATION: $550.00
HEALTH: Amy Santiago is healthy! She is spayed, microchipped, flea treated, vaccinated and dewormed. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as transportation and general care costs.
HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find her a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!
NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME:
Amy is an undersocialized girl and can be fearful of new situations, people and places. She was part of an unwanted litter and raised in a country setting with her brother and sister, so has not met a lot of people and seen much of the world beyond that one property. This can be fixed and Amy can grow into a more confident dog. But not alone. This requires training and continued socialization with another dog in the home who can act as a mentor for Amy. This dog should be friendly and outgoing to help show Amy that the world is not a scary place. Amy loves to play with other dogs and in time learns to trust and love her people with the help of the resident mentor dog.
Amy Santiago is a puppy so she's playful and has a lot of puppy energy! She is super cute and fun, but a lot of work. Her forever family should be committed to lots of training - obedience, housetraining, and socialization. This will ensure that Amy Santiago grows into a confident, well behaved adult! Puppies' personalities are dependent on their environment, and the structure and training they are given, in addition to socialization. Their personalities continue to grow and be shaped by their new adoptive families. Puppy daycare and socialization classes or puppy kindergarten are highly recommended for their personal development. She will more than reward you for all your hard work with lots of love, loyalty, and laughs.
All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.
Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run entirely by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet!

Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!
