Story
Riley is a lovable loyal protective companion I’ve had for 4 years. She loves to play ball and fetch all day of you let her as well as plays in the snow for hours. She is smart and witty and loves to be around her humans. She is not good with other dogs or people she doesn’t know she has a lot of aggression that is fear based. She’s not bitten anyone but does give warning signs. She has had some training but due to life circumstances I cannot keep up with the training and she does have a shock collar only used when there will be people she doesn’t know and she is crate trained. overall she deserves the best life I now cannot give her.

Good with kids, Good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Voight is an extremely intelligent, empathic, and loving dog. He has a ton of strength and energy and needs and owner that is strong enough to handle him and up for adventures. He has graduated from extensive obedience training and is trained on hand signals. He currently lives with an elderly French bulldog and he is extremely tolerant of her and shows no signs of dog aggression. He seems to love all people and loves to learn up against you while you pet him or place his head in your lap. He needs a new home because he has a high prey drive for squirrels and pulls very hard on the leash when he sees one and his elderly owner is unable to handle him when this happens. His prey drive also seems to extend to cats so it is STRONGLY recommended that he only be adopted by a cat free household. He loves people and children but tends to accidentally knock small children oven when excited so older kids may be a better fit. A fenced in yard to run would be a big benefit.

Story
Hi there! My name is Kiara and I am a 45-pound beautiful young shepherd mix looking for my foster or forever home. I'm not too much of a selfish lady, but I would like to tell you a little bit about myself so that I can find my forever home! I came to Almost Home as a stray who clearly didn't find enough food because I am extremely skinny. They are feeding me lots here though, so I am working on gaining a few pounds and getting lots of yummy treats! Being a shepherd mix, I am a very intelligent girl! I am working on basic commands and doing well! I love to play so I would need a home to match my physical and mental stimulating needs. Along with this, I can be a little shy, so I would love a family who will show me that the world isn't as scary as it started! I get along well with all people and I am very playful with dogs, so I would love to be with a pup who matches my energy! I'm hoping I'm not in this kennel place too long! The volunteers are amazing, but I would love a cozy house of my own! Hope to meet you soon.Adoption fee is $320Email: dogs@almosthomefoundation.orgAlmost Home Foundation's adoption requirements:(1) Be at least 21 years of age;(2) Have the consent of all adults living in the household;(3) Have approval from the residence owner;(4) Have valid ID with current address;(5) Be approved by Almost Home Foundation as a suitable adoptive home; and`(6) Live in the suburbs surrounding Schaumburg (Illinois Residents only)*** Please note that Almost Home Foundation accepts only cash or checks for adoption fees; we do not accept debit or credit cards. ***
