Approximate DOB 11/03/2015

Size - Medium size as adults - maybe 45-55 lbs 

History-  Dumped at a rural shelter these guys were networked like crazy to get them out and safe.. They were quickly tagged for rescue however before they could get to rescue they all got sick.. The rescue refused them but the transport organization had found a foster already so they begged for help so they could save these 5 little lives.. Four of the babies recovered but now they need a forever home.. Someone to love them forever-- they have had a rough go so far in life but we along with their foster mom and the folks with Underdog are determined to give them the very best life has to offer.. 

Temperament- These babies are all a little standoffish with strangers.. But overall very playful, and very, very smart.. They have already started learning basic commands..  They get along with all the other dogs they have met (all sizes and ages) and are very loyal and protective of their family.. They will need more socialization and training to be the very best they can be but they are wonderful babies..

Energy Level- This sweet girl is rambunctious and feisty but like her siblings very smart.. Lots of training and socialization are in this baby's future so she can be the best she can be.. 

Dogs/Cats- Gets along with everyone.

Housetrained- House trained using a dog door. She is fine in a crate- quiet and well behaved but due to her past she will potty in the crate (bad habit we have not been able to break).. Currently her group has a bedroom to themselves with beds and a dog door and they do not have accidents- we do let them take turns coming out into the living room when we are watching them and they are awesome dogs..

This is Chile Piquin- she is pretty small compared to her brothers but so loving and very cute.. She is a beautiful brindle with stunning markings. She can be a little standoffish with strangers and can be protective of her family but she does seek approval and corrects easily.. She is still learning what behavior is ok and what is not.. She is a doll - loves laps, walks, and playing with her toys.. . She is a cutie, loves to cuddle and her favorite thing in the world is to sit in your lap with her toy and watch tv. She is very smart and learns quickly. She loves the treat ball and puzzles. She is tiny but has a big personality and tons of energy. She can be rough and very vocal when playing. She is tiny compared to the others but can hold her own when rough-housing.

Piquin needs a very active home that can tire her out and/or a very active dog that can wear her out- she should not be an only dog.. Even though she loves her loved ones and is a very loving girl overall we will not be placing her with small children just due to her fear of strangers. Oftentimes kids run around and don't always no boundaries and with her taking a while to warm up we do not feel it is fair to her or a child to go into a home with small children who she will be freaked out by...   The best home for her will have a dog door leading in and out of the house and not a crate. Due to her being hospitalized she started using her crate to potty in since they were not taking her out enough.. However she is active and playful in the house and uses a dog door perfectly.. 

Adoption fee $150 includes spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations (4 for puppies), deworming, microchip, rabies vacc, collar and tags, training information, and all the support you need.

About Almost Home NM

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a newly formed rescue in Peralta, NM. We are still very small and currently in process of getting our 501c3 tax exempt status.It is mainly just myself, my two daughters and a small group of volunteers. We only take in animals from shelters who are scheduled to be put down. All animals are housed in my home and on my property. We started this rescue due to the simple fact that there are so many wonderful dogs dying everyday at the shelters because there just isn't enough room.We do not discriminate against any breed. Every dog has the potential to be a great family pet, working dog, or therapy dog- just as every dog has the potential to become a "dangerous dog" due to the simple fact that they all (or most anyway) have teeth and can bite when provoked or trained to obey their owners commands.
We do it for the love of the animals and the need to find forever homes for the ones impounded due to no fault of their own.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting from us but have questions please feel free to e-mail me.

In order to start the application process you must send us an e-mail request for an application. We will e-mail it to you as soon as possible. Then just fill it out and send it back via e-mail. Once we receive it then we can schedule an appointment for you to come out and meet the animals.

We are not an open to the public facility with specific hours of operation. We are a foster home and therefore require an application submitted before an appointment can be made and directions given out.

If you would like to adopt from out of state then you must be willing to come out to meet and adopt the pet you are interested in.. We do not ship pets nor will we meet someone somewhere.. We want adopters to come out and spend at least an hour with this pet in their environment before adopting just to ensure there is a connection. We would hate for the adoption to not work and be so far away.
