‘She’s the one,’ Amber the abused pit bull adopted from Oregon Humane

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A dog who was doused with gasoline and intentionally set on fire in California has found a new home in Oregon.

Amber, a 2-year-old 60-pound pit bull mix, arrived at the Oregon Humane Society last week from Yreka, California. 

OHS said she was the victim of “horrendous abuse” when she was set on fire by her former owner in April.

Now, Amber has her second chance at happiness – she was adopted Monday.

Amber’s new owner, identified as Michael of West Linn by OHS, saw her story on the news. He decided he wanted to meet her and arrived at the shelter as soon as she was available for adoption.

Michael lost his blue heeler mix, a dog he owned for 17 years, when it passed away last fall. Michael wasn’t sure when he would want a new dog in his life until he saw Amber. According to OHS, Michael thought “she’s the one” when he looked into her hazel eyes.

OHS said Michael will provide Amber with “an active, loving, dog-experienced home to live the life she deserves.”

Amber was all smiles when she went home with Michael Monday.
