Adopt Amos

Saint Bernard

*** Now Taking Applications***Amos would do best in a home with children 12 years or older . As he was an outdoor dog he can be suspicious of men and new people. Proper introduction is needed when meeting new people especially men. He is generally good with other dogs, but inexperienced .Amos is a sweet boy with lots of love to offer his new family. He is a shy boy but with time and the proper introduction he warms up fast. Ignoring him and letting him come to you is the best method. Reaching out to pet him or have her sniff your hand by sticking it in his face is not a safe way to greet a dog. This boy has been an outdoor dog and has little exposure to common things in life such as a tv or vacuum cleaner. He is looking for someone to teach him everything there is to know about being a pet! He also needs help learning to go the bathroom outside, as he has not been house trained. Obedience classes are recommended as always to teach him skills and to build a bond with his new owners. Crate training is also advised to keep him safe and out of trouble. As with any dog, rules and structure are a must. Amos will make a wonderful companion for adopters with lots of love to offer him. Supervision around children and other pets is advised .
