Jarvis is a 28lbs schnoodle Corgi mix complete with poodle curls, long short body, and schnauzer face. He was adopted from a rescue in Arkansas. Since being adopted we have made sure he is UTD on vaccinations/heart worm/frontline, neutered, and microchipped. Sadly, Jarvis has not adjusted well to a home with young children and cats. Jarvis is too anxious and strong to be around young children. He doesn't do well with the noises and action of a young family or frequent house guests. He prefers a quieter, safe, predictable atmosphere. Make no mistake though, he loves to run and play! He enjoys car rides, loves the dog park, doggy daycare, and boarding facilities where there are lots of friends! He is a dogs dog and would do wonderfully in a home with larger playful dogs and/or older (13+) children. After playing, he likes crashing out in his bed and chewing on his Kong or nylabones for strong chewers. He is crate trained and is used to sleeping by himself. He knows basic commands and does well learning new things especially if it involves cheese. He does need to work on commands, and walking on leash, so he would do well with an experienced owner. Jarvis is an excellent dog to his owner (lots of snuggles and kisses) and although we are heartbroken our relationship isn't working out, we are hoping and excited for him that his new home will give him the environment in which he will thrive.

PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US! We are NOT a shelter: All of our dogs live in private homes with foster families. Come and meet the Almost Home dogs and their fosters at our Meet & Greet events, where you can learn more about our wonderful dogs from the people who live with them, find out which dogs are on their way and when they’ll arrive, and fill out an application to adopt or foster.
We cannot adopt to homes where electric-shock fencing systems or training collars are used. For more information on the dangers of electric-shock collars, please visit banshockcollars.ca/studies.php and http://www.hollysden.com/say_no_to_shock.htm (scroll down and click on the "Invisible Fencing Systems" link).
We do not have an online adoption application; to request an application, e-mail us at AlmostHome4Dogs@yahoo.com. To speed e-mail processing time, be sure to note the name of the dog you are inquiring about in the Subject line. For Meet & Greet times and locations, visit our home page, where you also will find information on our adoption process and fees.
