Amy is the biggest goofball who is waiting to find her forever home. She is a German Shepard who is about 1 year old. She came to the Burbank Animal Shelter from another shelter that was very full from the 4th of July impounds. The Burbank Animal Shelter jumped in to help Amy knowing that she would make a great addition to a local family.

Amy did not thrive in a shelter environment and started losing weight when she came to the Burbank Animal Shelter. The staff quickly noticed that Amy was having a hard time adjusting and worked with the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter to find her a foster home to stay with until she is adopted.

Her foster family is happy to report that Amy immediately started to eat and gain weight, and she is doing great in a home environment. Amy loves to cuddle with her foster family’s two young children. Amy is a large dog – the same height as one of the children in her foster family.

Like any young pup, she has bursts of energy followed by long naps. Amy is house trained, quickly learned to use a doggie door, and does not bark in the house or yard. Her foster family shared that Amy is motivated by belly rubs, hugs, and kisses (especially since her tongue hangs out of her mouth when she is really happy).

Amy likes to lay outside and explore the backyard when it is not too hot. Since she is a large young dog, she will need a backyard to run and play, as well as someone who is physically able to take her on walks to keep her active. Her foster family is working hard with her on walks, and she will need continued training on walking on a leash and not reacting to other dogs.

Her foster family reports that she does have separation anxiety when left alone, which is likely because of all the changes that she has had in her short life and her high desire to be around people. Her foster family thinks that her stress about being alone will calm down with some training and a stable home.
