Approximate DOB 08/01/2014

Size - Small

History- Purchased as a puppy and left in the backyard- his name translated from Spanish to English meaning 'trash' or 'dirt'..  He was badly matted and just lived in a backyard by himself.  A fellow rescuer pleaded with the owners to allow her to get him into rescue. They finally agreed. We have now had him for quite a while and he has made some progress but we feel he would greatly benefit if he had his own family to bond with and so he can get more one on one time.. He desperately wants to be loved- he wags his tail, and talks to us, and jumps around us when we get home. But he is still extremely fearful and must be caught to be petted.. He really needs a special person in his life. He is not leash trained, he doesn't come when called, he doesn't come to anyone for attention, he doesn't like being held, he is scared of being groomed, and basically he is almost feral; however, he is making progress -- baby steps, he is crate trained, house trained to use a dog door, comes when we yell treats and will take them from your hand as he stretches forward, acts excited when we get home, dances around us as though he wants attention, will occasionally allow us to pet him if there is another dog between us and he really does enjoy it, there is hope but he needs a very special person with time and patience and who understands that this boy is not your typical happy for attention dog who loves people.. We do have hope and feel with more one on one and more socialization he will learn to trust people but as of right now this is where we are at.  This is a dog who needs a yard, a dog door, and no kids just due to his fearfulness. He has never bit anyone but he is terrified of being caught so will run and try to get away, but once you have him he relaxes a tiny bit but not much but in time with more and more holding he should continue to improve,  

Temperament- Very sweet and playful, but extremely fearful..

Energy Level- Mid level-- loves playing with the other dogs.. 

Dogs/Cats- Great with other dogs- should go into a home with at least one other dog. Great with cats

Housetrained- Crate trained and using a dog door

Lambough is a wonderful little boy who desperately wants someone to love.. Someone who will be patient but at the same time be very encouraging to come to them for attention.. I am sure once he realizes his person is safe, loving, and fun to be with he will make a drastic change and become the super loving little dog I know he wants to be..

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.
