This week's featured pet has everything you'd want in a furry friend. Amie is a sweet-natured pup ready to play around or just kick back on the couch with you. But it hasn't always been fun and games for this beauty.

When Amie came to Austin Pets Alive!, she was diagnosed with mammary cancer and underwent surgery in June. She is now living a healthy life in the shelter. She also knows a super cool trick that will ensure you will never wear mismatched shoes again.

So take a look and help Amie find a permanent home for her healthy new life.

Name: Amie

Sex: Female

Breed: Retriever, flat-coated mix

Adult size: Large

Age: 7 years, 10 months

Sign: Libra

Spayed/neutered: Yes

Adoption donation: $0.00

Location: On site

Surprise fact: One of Amie's favorite tricks is matching shoes. She knows a good pair of shoes when she sees them, but she doesn't chew. Instead she will bring you a matched pair!

What APA! says about Amie:

  • Amie has big, sweet brown eyes that exude love for everyone she meets. 
  • She will probably do better with an active owner and at a home with plenty of space for her to run around. 
  • Amie has tested positive for heartworms, but the cost of treatment is covered by APA! donors. It's a treatable condition, and it's not like she doesn't have a fighting spirit!

Why APA! says she deserves your love:

  • Amie is crate trained, so if you are ready for loving dog to run around with she is more than ready to move in with you.
