Approximate DOB 04/01/2013

Size - Petite medium size

History- A report was called into a local shelter that a man was deceased in a home. Three dogs were on the property severely emaciated. A volunteer posted a photo of one of the dogs - she was so scared and so very skinny. We said OK when we thought there was only one dog but then we were told there were 3 and they were acting extremely aggressive in the kennels so backed out. Fortunately a friend and trainer we work closely with went and evaluated them and saw potential and her heart broke for them- so she pulled them as her own project dogs. We helped her raise money for their vetting and care but now they really need to go into their own homes where they can fully blossom and know what being spoiled and loved is really like.. 

Temperament- Very gentle and a little shy but she is very sweet.. My assumption is she was probably raised with only this man as her human and didn't get as much socialization as she should have.. 

Energy Level- Mid level..

Dogs/Cats- Seems to be ok with other dogs - just would need proper introduction-- which you would have Lisa at Custom K9 Performance to help get her settled... Cats are unknown

Housetrained- Crate and possibly house trained. It is unknown if they lived in the house or not but she took to a crate easily.  

This sweet girl is just darling.. She looks like a very young smaller German Shepherd girl.. I met her briefly and she was a little standoffish but happy.. She is another very sweet project dog who will blossom in a family of her own..  

Adoption fee $250 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.
