Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 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!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

She lived there in horrible conditions along with more than 25 other dogs. The vet thinks she is about 10 years old, but this sweet, gentle gal still has a lot of love to give! She gets along well with other dogs and with cats, too. Although she weighs around 45 lbs., she feels like a smaller dog.Scarlette is c ompletely house trained and easy to walk on a leash (another dog helps to get her going in the right direction). She's a very dog and a wonderful addition to a family. Older kids would probably be better although she's gentle younger children might make her more nervous. Two of the pictures show the area in which poor Scarlette was contained in BEFORE she went to rescue, while she was still in the hoarding situation. We included them to show you that even though she has come out of terrible living conditions, she has not let it break her loving trust in humans. Her new foster mom has created a blog with more info and pictures — you can see it here: http://fosteringk9s.tumblr.com Scarlette is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and recently had some much-needed dental work done ... so her bags are packed and she's ready to roll!

      Location: Doylestown, PA
      Posted Breed: Wheaten Terrier / Mixed (long coat). NOTE: Bella is not with Almost Home; this is a courtesy post only. Please see below for more information! Bella is a 6- to 8-year-old "special needs" girl who's looking for a new place to hang her leash. Here's what her family told us about her: "Bella is a wonderful dog who loves people and is great with other animals. She lives with two children, an older dog and a cat, and loves to run outside (especially in the the snow!). She loves to snuggle up in her crate, and sleeps quietly in there at night." Unfortunately, Bella has an ongoing health issue that is more than her family can handle: She was adopted from a shelter after she was found in an abandoned apartment with a serious urinary-tract infection (UTI). However, it may have left her with urinary issues, and she now "leaks" constantly and has to wear a diaper :-( She has had surgery to try to repair the problem, but unfortunately it didn't seem to work. Bella needs a family that is willing to love her as she is, or possibly look into further medical intervention to fix her "plumbing" issues. Want to learn more?

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Cindy's foster family is moving and she is in need of a new foster home. Can you help? She is also available through our foster to adopt program. "Pick me! Pick me!" Cindy is all eager smiles, tail wags and wiggly-jiggly dance moves when she sees folks coming her way along the kennel run. She tries so very hard to make sure you notice her — this super-friendly pup doesn't want to be lost in the crowd! And frankly, not only does this 9 year old charmer NOT get lost in the crowd, she's sure to stand out! Sporting a lovely deep brindle jacket and a broad, warm smile, sweet Cindy is a bubbly, engaging lady ready to steal your heart. She's always eager to climb into your lap or show off her oh-so-pettable belly as she rolls with delight in the grass. Here's what her temporary foster mom down south told us about her: "Cindy is absolutely loving with every human she's met. She's a little TOO interested in cats, however, so a cat-free home would be best for Cindy." Cindy's foster mom told us she's doing wonderfully there, too: "Cindy loves, loves, loves to be around people! She is a gentle, sweet girl who walks very nicely on the leash. Her idea of heaven would be a home where someone is around the house most of the day, as she's not fond of being crated or otherwise contained ... and she loves having 'people company' more than anything. She's an eager-to-please girl who is great with kids, housetrained, laid-back and mellow." Cindy is dog-selective. She's fine with the foster's other dog but has issues with some others so she would do best as an only dog. Want to learn more?

Tortie rings the bells on the door when she has to go out, and she just loves to be in the yard (she's a great gardening buddy!), so a home with a physical fence would be ideal for her."

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Doylestown, PA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Thelma is a smart, active, energetic girl who’s about 4-5 years old and tips the scales at about 52 lbs. ... and she's looking for her “special someone!” Here's what Thelma’s foster mom told us about her: "Thelma is very food-motivated, so training classes with her have been a real joy — in fact, she recently graduated from Lisa Berkenstock's Pet Dog Manners class in Horsham. There was just one catch: For weeks, I tried to teach her the ‘Down’ cue, and nothing seemed to be working ... until we discovered the magic of CheezIts! Then she learned ‘Down’ in about 10 minutes using them as her reward! :-D She’s completely housetrained and crate-trained, too." "Thelma likes to stick close to her ‘person’; she sleeps in bed with me and follows me around the house. If given the chance, she will try to squeeze through the front door ahead of you, so it’s best to be cautious when coming or going. She also has a rather unusual hobby: She likes to watch other cats and dogs on television and in YouTube videos! (Check out the photo of Thelma gazing raptly at kitty videos :-) It all started with the Westminster Dog Show, when she was captivated by all of the dogs prancing around the show ring. It’s amazing — she will sit and watch for more than 30 minutes and still expect to see more!" Thelma likes to take her time getting to know people, and is sometimes easily startled, so her ideal owner will be someone who’s quiet and patient, and will give her the time and space she needs to feel comfortable. She would do best in a home that has a fenced yard for exercise, and we think she'd be happiest as an only dog. No cats for Thelma, either — those fast-moving fluffy things are just too, too tempting! — and fast-moving little kids are a bit much for her as well. Her ideal home would be with a quiet, single woman or a couple; older, dog-savvy kids may okay, too. But whomever her special someone turns out to be, we know Thelma will be a great companion ... maybe your companion? Want to learn more?
