Facts about Wesley

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Hound (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11093758

Eighteen-month-old Wesley is a smart, loving 15-lb. furball of energy! He gets along wonderfully with dogs, cats and humans, and is a quick learner who'd be the star of any obedience class. He loves chewing on his bones and playing with soft toys that he can carry and toss, and then he's ready to sit in your lap or snuggle up for a good night's sleep. We're not sure exactly what his breed mix is, but he's definitely the best all-American buddy ever!

Wesley is housetrained, and will use puppy pads or "do his business" during leash walks. {For some reason, he feels compelled to circle three times first, which is kind of adorable :-D )  He's startled by loud or sudden noises outside, so walks in quiet areas are more to his liking. 

Wesley will soon be making the long trip north in search of his new family, so please check back here to see when he'll be arriving ... and then stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Wesley is the one 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!

About Almost Home Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers whose goal is to save the lives of homeless dogs suffering in high-kill shelters. In doing so, we hope to provide an alternative to the purchase of puppy-mill and pet-store dogs, thereby reducing the demand for and ultimately the supply of such dogs. We strive to match each dog with the right family after the dog has been observed in a foster home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have weekly meet and greets and potential adopters can set up appointments with foster families.

Our Adoption Process...

We require vet and reference checks and a home visit for all adoptions. Our adoption fee is $300 with an extra $50 deposit for unaltered puppies.
