Ben's Story...
OUR ABUSERS GOT TO OUR BODIES, BUT NOT OUR SPIRITS

Ben came to Almost Home after Animal Control seized him from a home where he and Joey had endured years of horrible conditions, neglect, and abuse.  Ben is approximately 4 years old.

Ben is a big dog with a big heart. Ben has no idea how handsome he is. Ben will walk on a leash but he hangs his head low and is afraid of noises and sudden movements. Unfortunately Ben has learned to accept his circumstances without any resistance, however horrible they may have been. There is absolutely no aggression in Ben, only fear.

Ben has been 100% housebroken since coming to Almost Home.  He was rescued from such horrible conditions that he probably has no desire to go to the bathroom in his room.  The vet estimates Ben to be about 3 years old.  He is blind in one eye.

Ben needs an owner that will be patient and shower him with love.  Ben has never known affection until now.  There is a bit of life beginning to show in Ben.  He has actually started wagging his tail for one of the employees at Almost Home.

We all yearn for the day that Ben can forget his past and walk with his handsome head held high and his tail wagging.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ben, a Lovingston Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Lovingston, or seeking a Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Lovingston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lovingston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lovingston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lovingston paves the way for another one to be saved.
