Approximate DOB 09/01/2016

Size -  She is about 6 lbs. 

History- She was picked up as a stray.. She was dehydrated and under weight. But the shelter vets and staff got her stabilized and she stole everyone's hearts.. She is special in that she does have Hydrocephalus so her head is much larger than it should, her eyes are spaced further apart, she has soft spots in her skull, she may in the future develop seizures and may have a shorter life span, and she doesn't gauge her surrounding well- so is more cautious than most dogs. Due to her condition she will not be placed in a home with other dogs or children as any type of trauma caused by either can make her condition worse.  She will be seeing our vet for a second opinion as well but for now this is what we were told and have observed.  

Temperament- She is very sweet and can be playful but tires quickly so then goes to her bed. 

Energy Level- Pretty mellow

Dogs/Cats- Good with other dogs but she will should not interact with those that are rambunctious or bigger than her due to the soft spots in her head. Trauma to the head can cause more fluid buildup and possibly seizures.  

Housetrained- She uses puppy pads 

This little girl is so cute.. She wins everyone over with her sweet personality.. She is absolutely darling and loves to play with her soft little toys.. Shew would make a wonderful addition to any family wanting a sweet, loving, special baby to love.. We are hoping the 2nd opinion we get on her is better and at that point we will update her bio..   

Adoption fee $200 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.
