Four-year-old Livi was one of a group of dogs who were abandoned in a house when the owner moved and left them behind :-( Luckily, they were found and rescued in time, and now they're in foster homes discovering just how good life can be! Not surprisingly, Livi can be a bit unsure in new situations, but quickly warms up when given time to get comfortable. She's working hard on her leash-walking and housetraining skills, and although she does fine in a crate, her foster mom says she hasn't needed to crate her at all.
Livi is currently living with five other dogs, and gets along wonderfully with everyone, so a home with a canine companion would be ideal for her. If you're looking for a quiet, low-key, easygoing pup who'll be your forever friend, please consider Livi! She's a snugglebug just looking for a snuggle-buddy ... how about you?
Livi just made the long trip north in search of her new family, so please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Livi is the right girl for you! (Local adoptions preferred — Philadelphia and tri-state area [South Jersey and northern Delaware] only.)
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 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.
FOSTER FAMILIES ARE LIFESAVERS!! Can you open your heart and home for a few weeks to homeless shelter dog? Remember, by fostering a dog, you save TWO lives — that of your foster dog, and that of the dog who takes his place in the shelter! Come to a Meet & Greet and find out if fostering is for you — there's no reward quite like the feeling that you've saved a life ... or two!
