Scottie is a 2 ½-year-old, Labrador/German Shepherd mix looking for her forever home. This sweet girl loves being around people and other animals: she has coexisted happily with a cat and another dog, and also attended doggie day care, where she especially enjoyed playing outside in the sprinkler.
Scottie enjoys going on runs and walks, playing outside and chasing (and returning!) her ball. She knows how to sit, lay down and give you her paw and hopes you reward her tricks with a delicious treat :-) This athletic girl also likes to swim and play at the beach! Sometimes Scottie thinks she is a lapdog, so after a long day she will want to curl up near you for a snuggle.
Scottie is housetrained and accustomed to being in a crate during the day, but her ideal home would be one where she'll get lots of attention and playtime from her human family, including outdoor time in a yard or visits to a dog park, and cuddles at night in front of the TV with some treats (peanut butter in a Kong is her favorite, and she loves the movie "Frozen!").
Want to learn more? Please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Scottie is the right one 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!
