Amber ~ in Washington State

Looking for a Home

amber My name is Amber. I'm a 10 yr old silky terrier female. I weigh about 8 pounds. I need a new home because my Mom (human owner) had to move into an extended care facility and can no longer care for me. My human sister has been taking of me for Mom, but she is not home very often and knows it is not fair for me to be alone so much.

I love kids and enjoy lots of affection. I enjoy walks in the park and enjoy rides in the car while going to visit friends and family. I need a home that will give me love and attention. I miss this with Mom being gone. I am very friendly to other people, but other dogs seem to scare me. I tend to bark and growl at other dogs. I definitely do not like cats. I would like a home where someone is home most of the time.

Amber is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations, including all dental work. She is paper trained but will have occasional accidents when left alone for too long. She would do better in a home where she is the only dog, unless the owner is willing to work with her to help her learn to get along with other dogs. She would enjoy being in a home with kids who would like to play with her. She loves being chased and playing fetch with her toys.

We are looking for a wonderful, forever home for Amber. She is in Washington State at this time, staying with relatives of her owner. Amber's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for her, and there will be an adoption fee or donation of $100. When she is adopted, she will "pack her bags" and bring along her bed, toys, etc.

If you have room in your home and heart for Amber, please fill out an application and mention her name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email Gail at and let her know you are interested in Amber.
