My story

Meet Fiona
PLEASE NOTE- AN APPLICATION FROM THE WEBSITE ALMOSTHOMEDOGS.ORG IS REQUIRED prior to any meet and greet. Calling, emailing and using the “contact us” link is not useful and will delay your consideration in the adoption of the dog.

Who loves big ears? Fiona is a playful, athetic 10 month old mixed breed currently about 40 pounds, expected to be about 50 pounds (our best guess is some lab, maybe some shepherd, maybe something like Australian kelpie with a touch of bully). Also thinks she is a lap dog-she is the best cuddler. Rescued from the streets of Texas, she comes to Maryland looking for her forever home. In search of an active family, will make a good playmate for your active dog. (currently fostered with 3 dogs, 4 dog friendly cats and even chickens). 6 foot high fence is required. Loving, mostly housebroken, smart, learning her commands. Here is the "but"...Fiona is fearful of some outside noise, people she doesn't know, dogs she doesn't know, etc...she will get better with training and counter conditioning (we will provide trainer to help teach you how to help her) to build her confidence but will need slow introductions. Vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. Send us an application if interested.


APPLY AT ALMOSTHOMEDOGS.ORG (click on the word "Adopt" at top of page to find the dropdown menu with application) The adoption fee is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including age appropriate vaccinations, worming, flea/tick preventative and spay/neuter if under 5 months. Puppies under 5 months of age may go to adoptive homes before they are spayed/neutered. Adopters who choose to adopt a puppy that has not yet been spayed/neutered are subject to an additional deposit of $100 (refundable upon proof of spay/neuter.) Included in the adoption fee, the rescue will arrange spay/neuter by a partner vet at a predetermined appointment when the puppy is between 4-6 months of age. It is the responsibility of the adopter to bring the adopted puppy back to the rescue vet for spaying/neutering or to send verification from their own vet (and own cost) that the puppy had been spayed/neutered. All of our dogs will be microchipped. Because our dogs are in foster homes, applications are required prior to setting up any appointments. Calling or emailing may delay your consideration. Find our application on our website, almosthomedogs.org, then click on "Adopt" tab at top We are a non profit no kill 501 (c)3 rescue. Please understand that we do our best to describe our dogs but often we rescue them with virtually no information about them and often our best educated guess can be challenging. Currently check, cash or venmo is preferred payment.
Think you and I might be a match?
