Look into those soulful eyes! To know this special boy is to love him.Amos Andy is a sleek, handsome 30-pound Basenji mix. He came to SmallDog Rescue as a fearful nine-month-old pup, the victim of mistreatment in his critical early life. He was embraced here by friends who believed in him and took the time to teach him that there are people in the world he can trust. In foster care, Amos blossomed into a loyal boy with lots of love to give. He is two years old now and ready for the right forever home. Amos would much rather be with his people than outside, but he also really enjoys a good game of chase or tussle with his four-legged playmates. Amos may be a mix, but he’s all Basenji – with the interesting quirks that entails. He is still shy in unfamiliar situations, and it takes him a while to trust, but he is extremely smart and eager to learn. He greets his people with a happy, wagging tail and sloppy kisses. He gets along great with other dogs, although he is a little intimidated by much larger dogs. Amos would do best in a home with another compatible dog to pal around with, but NO CATS. He must have a securely fenced yard to run around in. Amos needs an experienced, patient, caring, all-adult home, or one with easygoing, dog-savvy older children, to show him how much fun being a much-loved pet can be!
