Amistad lived at Scooby with his brother and another pair of galgo brothers. He, his brother, and mother were discovered by Scooby rescuers after being abandoned in a warehouse with no food or water. He was the most shy of the bunch - and so badly needed a person of his own. Abby brought Amistad to the US where he was fostered for a short time in Denver, then Utah, and was finally transported to Oceanside, CA where he met his new family (Telma and Mike Shaw). It was love at first sight for all of them, and Amistad is happy and well loved. His brother, Ramon, arrived in the US in February 2007. His mother, Ramona, is a permanent resident of Scooby and is one of the "Courtyard Gang".
