Soulful Young Man Looking for His Forever Home!


Name: Amos    Best Guess for Breed: Pointer Mix  

Best Guess for Age: approx. 1 year as of 1/8/17     SEX: Male

Approximate Weight: 40 pounds

Has Lived With: other dogs

Currently Living at: DC foster. Amos would really love a forever home, though!

Special adoption considerations: Amos is a bit on the shy side, and therefore would do best in a home that already has a dog.

"The first ten million million minutes were the worst. And the second ten million... they were the worst too. The third ten million I didn't enjoy at all. After that, I went into a bit of a decline." -- Me, Sad Amos, On The Waiting-To-Be-Adopted Process. (Soul Twin of Marvin The Robot from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

Well, hello. I guess. My name is Amos, and I'm a 10-month-old(ish), 40-pound pointer mix, but my fosters call me "Sad Amos." I don't know why. This is just my face. Hound dogs always look sad. Even when our tails are wagging, our faces look like our best friend died. It's terrible.

So, adoption events are not my favorite, but that doesn't mean I'm not the bestest dog for your pack! You have a dog who needs a buddy? You need a buddy who happens to also need your dogs for buddies? That would be me. I'm a little bit on the shy side, so having another dog or two around to help me "dog" with the best of them is a must-have. I love young humans, my daily constitutionals around the yard for sniffs, cuddles, and arguing. Oh, how I love arguing with my fosters. It's my favorite.

But, I do respond to gentle correction. If one of them says, "Amos, that's rude!", I stop. Well, for the time being, anyway. I'm merely asserting myself, as a recovering shy boy should. Hoomans can be so irrational:

"Go outside to do your business, Amos!" (Said when it is cold and rainy out. Um, what?)

"Stop licking that, Amos!"

"C'mon Amos, no need to hide behind the large hooman... These strange other hoomans you do not know and who may have questionable high value treats want to meet you."

Sigh. Make that a loooooooong siiiiiiiiiiigh...

Anyway, I may be a quieter sort of good boy, but I am a Very Good Boy all the same, and my fosters would be happy to tell you all about me and what I'm actually like at home--a sweet, shy, snuggly guy.

So, if you've read this far, how about filling out and submitting an application for me today? I won't smile about it, but I'll be very happy all the same.

Amos loves kids, but needs a cat test if you have them. Additionally, he is somewhat looking forward to you signing him up for obedience classes, which will help him work on my commands and manners, as well as build confidence! That sounds like so much fun--well, maybe not for Amos!

Like most shelter dogs, Amos may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained.

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Liz K. at!
