Name: Amber, as in actress and Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard, actress Amber Tamblyn, Houston society reporter Amber Elliott and … well, I’m not sure what she does, but ... Amber Rose.

Birthdate: December 22, 2018. I’m still a puppy, so while I’ll be new to you, everything is new to me.

Ethnicity: I’m a retriever sort of mix, but 100-percent cute. I was brought to the shelter as a stray, but the volunteers here say I’m friendly with everybody, including humans and the other pups. I’m practically housebroken and walk properly on a leash. Oh, and my ears aren’t nearly as big as they appear here. You know what they say about cameras, they add 10 pounds and a couple of inches on ears.

The angelic white halo around my nose is totally natural. If you heard different, it’s because of that gossip queen, Amber Elliott. She’s just jealous that since I’ve come along, she’s moved down one spot on the list of famous Ambers. If you adopt me, CAP will have me spayed, guaranteed healthy, shampooed, and shined. 

Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, May 3 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
