Hi – I am the sweetest little basset hound you will ever meet! I came to MN as a very shy girl that needed some time to get used to life in a home and am doing amazing!  I know you won’t be able to resist my big brown eyes and long, very soft Basset ears.

I live in a condo with my foster family and everyone loves me! I am a very engaging gal and love to stop and gossip with all the neighbors. I get along great with my foster brother and I love meeting new people and playing with other dogs. If you stop petting me, I will nudge you for more attention – I am a pro at nose boops!

I am a bit of a couch potato and overall, I live a pretty quiet life – I like looking out the window to see what’s happening outside. I would love to have another dog in my forever home to help me gain confidence and learn how to dog, but it isn't required. 

We are working on leash training – since I live in a condo we go out to the potty area on a leash. If you are committed to continue leash training with me I don’t need a fence in my forever home. I like to go on short walks around the neighborhood. Also, I don’t bark much so I’d be fine with living in an apartment or a house. My foster dad is home most of the time so not sure how I would be if left home alone all day. I am doing great with potty training and I know to go sit at the door when I want to go out. We have a pretty good routine taking breaks outside - it is important that dad take breaks from work too! When my people leave me at home, I do fine in the kennel. And I don't mind sleeping at night in the kennel.  I’m working on some basic obedience commands but am quite well behaved and I know we will learn so many new things together!

I have one bad habit - I will try to steal your food if you are not looking – I am sneaky! And I may take a shoe off the floor, but it’s more for comfort than chewing.

If you are looking for a sweet little lady to keep you company, I’m your gal.

Hugs and kisses, Amber

*Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
