Dog Rescue Stories: Amos Escaped an Unsafe HomeLarry Kay
By Jarissa Aquinde, Positively Woof Rescue and Adoption Story Editor
“The best things in life are rescued”
Amos’ parents’ understanding is that Amos was found roaming the streets of Macleay Island after escaping his previous home, where he was being under fed and mistreated. The exact details are unknown. He was surrendered to Redlands Pound and then managed to find his way to RSPCA Queensland.RSPCA Queensland is the leading animal welfare charity in Queensland and whilst Amos was with them, they desexed him, got him up to date with his vaccinations and treatments, and covered all of his vet bills.
Amos’ forever mom and dad were in the habit of checking the RSPCA adoption page every couple of weeks and happened to stumble across Amos and his cute little face. He also had the most unique nose they had ever seen! They saw him on online on a Wednesday, fell in love with him immediately, and by midday Saturday of the same week, they were on their way home with Amos, ready to start their life together!Amos was a year and a half when they adopted him and he has been in his forever home for just over two years. His mom never knew that she could love a dog as much as she loves Amos. Her life is now about giving him the best life he can have, which is the one that he deserves.
Amos is energetic, strong willed and fun loving. Everybody who meets him loves him as he is such a friendly and happy dog. His crazy antics bring a smile to everyone’s face and that sparkle in his eyes is the icing on the cake.
Why sir that will be $69 + my tip that makes it $169 ‼️ bargain baby 💰 Guys I got a job ‼️ Today I was hanging out with my hooman girlfriend Kay @chewchompandchill and well she offered me a casual sales position. I felt I was extremely qualified for the job I mean I absolutely love toys and treats and I’m super friendly. Oh and did I mention just so damn handsome.. ⭐️ For my first day at work I Chose to rock my @gstopybowtie , my @dizzydogcollars and my @badtags. I did rock the “throw the damn ball” tag but I’m secretly wishing I had gone with “I’m kinda a big deal” tag. ⭐️ Why I needed a job❓well you see my modelling covers my living expenses but it doesn’t give me much else for pocket money for presents for myself and my furiends or even enough for a holiday.. ⭐️ Plus @rolloshiba and I thinking of moving out into our own bachelor pad so I gotta start saving. Why not work at my most favourite place in Brisbane.. ⭐️ Mum was a little bit proud of my first day on the job so she wanted to get this snap. I turned on the charm… ⭐️ So furiends if you live in Brisbane you must come on down to @chewchompandchill just the coolest place in Brisbane, well actually Australia. And you never know, you may just get served by this handsome fella. ⭐️ Sorry no mates rates I’ve gotta earn a living 😉 . ⭐️ Hope you all had a groovy Saturday ‼️ I’m pooped after work ⭐️ I want to be a #GhalaDogModel for @ghaladogs #gotajob #salesman #tipme @preview.app @acolorstory

But make sure when the hoomans get home tonight you can go through the plans with them so they know what to expect. We don’t want any surprises now ☀️ What’s on your list ❓ ☀️ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ And yes it’s #funfactfriday so here we go : 4️⃣ When we first moved to our house with my yard, I managed to find buried in the garden a dead pet. We still aren’t sure what animal it was but I successfully managed to dig it up, and start to eat it. Then mum realised what I was doing and what I had found and she was not impressed but worried!!! Good thing was I vomited it up pretty much straight away but mum said the smell was absolutely disgusting and it took days for it to disappear. My stomach was fine I’m a tough kid! . ⭐️ join us next week for Fact 5️⃣ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ D I S C O U N T C O D E S ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ AMOS20 for 20% off @bougiepoochie AMOS15 for 15% off @aussiedoggiebag ➖ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #fridayfunny #beachboy @preview.app

“Dear ocean, Thank you for making us feel tiny, humble, inspired and salty… all at once.” 🌊 👇🏻 It was the B E A C H my furiends how lucky am I. Did anyone else get to the beach today ❓❓❓ 🌊 As I’ve mentioned before it is my goal to become the worlds best pro surfer dog so any beach time I get is crucial to my success. Check out my story to see my training. No big waves and it was low tide but I’m working on my fitness.. 🌊 And don’t think I’ve forgotten it’s time for #funfactfriday so here we go : 3️⃣ I jumped out of a dog park once…. from a stand. Mum freaked as she was worried about losing me as they’d only had be 2-3 months. Lucky for mum I was running after another dog and so I stopped at the dog and mum was shouting at the other hooman to grab me whilst she jumped out of the park too… I never did it again but mum is on alert 🚨 . ⭐️ join us next week for Fact 4️⃣ ⭐️ I think mum’s lost in “the cloud” trying to find these photos… ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ D I S C O U N T C O D E S ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ AMOS20 for 20% off @bougiepoochie AMOS15 for 15% off @aussiedoggiebag ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #beachbabes #surferdog @preview.app

Damn it mum how many times do I have to tell you. Pack the bacon, ALWAYS pack the bacon. I don’t care that maybe you don’t feel like it’s a suitable beach treat. 🥓 I’ll eat it with sand, I’ll eat it with seaweed, I’ll eat it with salty water all over it . I don’t care! 🥓 Because let’s be honest mum, your not in charge here are you 👊🏻 🥓 Now I’ll wait here you go get the bacon. 🥓 🥓 Have a great hump days kids. If only I really was at the beach. I guess one can only dream. #beachdog #givemebacon #humpdayvibes #drseussday
