My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hi there, my name is Binx! I came to Almost Home because a member of my family was dealing with health issues and could no longer take care of me. I am very friendly and affectionate! I can be dog selective because I think I'm a Queen, but I do like to play once I'm friends with other dogs. My friends at the shelter say I might need to be without cats but you never know maybe me and your cat could be friends as well. My previous owners have referred to me as an "escape artist," so my new home will need to have a safe and secure yard for me to enjoy. I can be mouthy and give kisses once I am warmed up to you. I like to play by using my mouth my human friends call it being mouthy I call it tasting everything...hehe I'm not biting I can just be a little nippy sometimes. I went out to Marshalltown to see if I could find my forever home out there but I didnt fit in well out there and came back to Almost Home. They didnt have outside runs due to it being winter and that just made me feel trapped. I am not a fan of getting a bath... but I do love rubbing my wet body all over you once I'm done! I'm up to date on all of my vaccinations and I tested negative for heartworm. I am microchipped and spayed. Do you have room in your home for me?
