Soulful Young Man Looking for His Forever Home!


Name: Amos    Best Guess for Breed: Pointer Mix  

Best Guess for Age: 6-7 months as of 8/31/17     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.

Hi! I'm Amos! I'm a 6-7 month old, 40-pound Pointer mix! I enjoy sniffing things, rolling around in the grass, writing poetry, and hiding things in my jowls--sticks, grass, kibble, your car keys. I also feel that if I'm ever in one of those movies where the dogs talk, I'd like Nick Offerman to voice my lines.

I am a very young boy, so I'm going to need lots of exercise to stay happy and healthy in mind and spirit! I can't wait to go on long walks with you, play with your dog(s) in the yard, visit the dog park to make new doggie friends, and maybe I'd even enjoy running! Since Fall is coming, I can't wait to romp through some pretty leaves and smell all the things you'll be baking for the holidays! On the other hand, once I'm tuckered out? I sure look forward to snuggling with you or my fur siblings for a nice long nap.

I'm not sure how I'll do with cats or kids yet, but we can certainly find out when I arrive in town! Additionally, I am looking forward to you signing me up for obedience classes, which will help me work on my commands and manners, as well as build confidence! That sounds like so much fun!

So, how's about it? Are you ready for a sweet boy like me to join your pack? Please fill out and submit an application for me today!

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!
