Precious is a pup who truly lives up to her name! This gorgeous girl is about 1–2 years old and weighs about 55 lbs. Her foster mom told us that she gets along wonderfully with her foster "sister," and has even made friends with the cat. She's completely housetrained, walks nicely on a leash, and is working hard on her crate-training skills.
Precious enjoys a good game of tug and fetch, but is happiest being close to her people. Despite her size, she's an expert lap dog, and loves to be held in her human friends' arms. She's a little shy at first and takes a few minutes to warm up to new people, but she's never met anyone she didn't like. If you're looking for a cuddlebug companion, Precious is your girl! :)
Want to learn more? Please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Precious is the right pup 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 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.
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!
