Approximate DOB 02/01/2015

History- An adult dog and puppy were picked up wandering by a rural shelter. They could not just leave them out there so took them in and hoped they would be reclaimed. Unfortunately nobody came for them. It was believed the adult dog was the dad of the puppy as he took very good care of him. When their time ran out and the shelter was too full to continue housing them the staff sent out a plea to rescue. She took lots of pictures for facebook in hopes someone would see how wonderful they were. She was hoping they could get out together. A rescue said yes-- but only to the baby. He was small and very cute- dad would be left behind. One of our fosters though messaged us - 'What can we do? This is not fair they can't leave the dad behind!!' She offered to foster if they could get out together. We said ok and let the shelter know that we would take them both. They were sent up to us shortly after and blossomed in their foster home. Showing their true happy playful and very loving personalities.  

Temperament- Very sweet, playful, and happy guy. He loves attention and loves running around playing, but can be a little shy and standoffish initially. 

Energy Level- Mid-higher level energy- loves to play chase with the other dogs. Would be a great hiking, biking, or jogging partner. He is one of those dogs who will easily adjust to whatever his family asks of him and the best thing he is a perfect size to take with you and he is very athletic so though he is a little small he will be able to keep up with an active family.

Dogs/Cats- Good with the other dogs and cats

House trained- Perfect at my house now. He uses a dog door and does good in a crate as well. 

This sweet boy would make a wonderful addition to any family wanting a sweet, loving, energetic boy to join their family. He does love attention and gets so happy when you talk baby talk to him. He is absolutely adorable and very sweet. You have to meet him to truly appreciate how wonderful he is. 

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.
