Hi, there! My name is Dottie, and my foster mom says I look like a 'mini-Lab.' I'm not sure what that is, exactly, but she seems to think it's a good thing! :-) I was very malnourished when I was rescued, but after lots of TLC, I now have my healthy figure back. The vet thinks I'm not quite 2 years old, and he said I weigh 31 lbs., which is a good weight for me, even though I'm a 'shorty!'
My foster mom says I'm housetrained and I get along just fine with everyone — really, what's not to like? :-) I'd love to find a new home with a doggy playmate and a fenced yard ... maybe your home? Why not write to my friends at Almost Home, and see if we'd be a perfect match for each other?
Hope to meet you soon!
Please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Dottie is the right doggy for you! (Local adoptions preferred — Philadelphia and tri-state area [South Jersey and northern Delaware] only.)
PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US! We are NOT a shelter: All of our dogs live in private homes with foster families. Come and meet the Almost Home dogs and their fosters at our Meet & Greet events, where you can learn more about our wonderful dogs from the people who live with them, find out which dogs are on their way and when they’ll arrive, and fill out an application to adopt or foster.
We cannot adopt to homes where electric-shock fencing systems or training collars are used. For more information on the dangers of electric-shock collars, please visit banshockcollars.ca/studies.php and http://www.hollysden.com/say_no_to_shock.htm (scroll down and click on the 'Invisible Fencing Systems' link).
We do not have an online adoption application; to request an application, e-mail us at AlmostHome4Dogs@yahoo.com . To speed e-mail processing time, be sure to note the name of the dog you are inquiring about in the Subject line. For Meet & Greet times and locations, visit our home page, where you also will find information on our adoption process and fees.
FOSTER FAMILIES ARE LIFESAVERS!! Can you open your heart and home for a few weeks to homeless shelter dog? Remember, by fostering a dog, you save TWO lives — that of your foster dog, and that of the dog who takes his place in the shelter! Come to a Meet & Greet and find out if fostering is for you — there's no reward quite like the feeling that you've saved a life ... or two!
