Rescue Me ID: 15-08-03-00663Miles (male)

Bichon Frise    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive

    We are looking for a loving household for our Bichon, Miles, who we got as a puppy in England 8 years ago and who has been an important part of our family. Miles has a cheerful and loving temperament and is wonderful with small children and adults. He sleeps on my daughter' pillow every night. He likes to be held and to sit next to people on the sofa and cuddle a lot. He is a little chubby and has a hotspot that he has been licking, but otherwise he is in great health and had all of his shots this spring. Sadly, we are moving to London and must find him a new home by August 18th.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-31-00081Emma (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This petite brindle beauty is Emma. She is housetrained and walks well on leash using a gentle leader. Emma listens intensely to her people and is eager to please and motivated by treats. She knows sit, wait and no; and is working on, come, off, lay down, back up, off, and leave it. Emma enjoys hard plastic chew toys and her foster mom bought a collection of Nylabones, special for her. If no one wants to play, Emma will happily entertain herself by dropping or tossing her toys and pouncing on them. She plays best with dogs her own size or larger with whom she is submissively playful and respectfully reads social cues. But, those other ... (Read More)pests, I mean, 'pets' also known as 'cats . . .' Emma is best not living with them. She loves her Lilliputians (children). She needs to be reminded to be gentle, but she is really very sweet: inviting them to play, accepting their patting and giving them love and kisses.Emma is happy to have big people play with her too. Sometimes she will invite play by nibbling on her people, and she needs reminders to use more appropriate methods. Emma sleeps in her crate at bedtime, and when her people are out. She is not vocal or whiney, but when she does let out a bark, the sound is so adorable that it evokes laughter. Emma has not exhibited any issues around food, but also has not been 'tested,' as she and her pack are routinely fed separately. She certainly has no problem with people sticking their hands inside her dish when she is eating. Emma has a happy-go-lucky personality, is easily corrected and loves pleasing her people. Emma deserves the best family possible. And, with just a little bit of training, she will be a fantastic dog for most any family. Emma is a 30lb 2-year-old female Pit-bull. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes. Please visit us at www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-31-00070Oscar (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Oscar's foster mom says 'He is a pretty freaking great dog. He WANTS commands and responds better than any dog I have seen. I believe he can be taught anything ' Oscar is smart and responsive. He needs a confident pack leader, hands down. He is great with other dogs but would do best in a cat free home. Oscar is not aggressive with toys or food. He does great in his crate when his people are out - goes right in when told to. Oscar does not seem to mind much, as his people try to make it as comfortable and inviting as possible and always leave him with something very special (that he only gets when he's in the crate) to chew on. Oscar is ... (Read More)housebroken and shows no signs of anxiety or destructive behavior. Oscar does well on leash with a regular collar, Haltie, or Gentle Leader. He is an energetic and athletic young dog who should have a long daily walk at the very least. Oscar loves the outdoors and hiking, check out his videos: https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B02JtdOXmJK67Op He is bright and agile and eager to please and has the capacity to be a star pupil in learning new things. Oscar knows: Sit, Come, Wait, Down, Off, Okay and Leave It. He has done a fantastic job at sitting and waiting for his dinner and when entering/exiting a door. Oscar is simply unconditional love in the form of a dog. He is affectionate and gives occasional kisses, but is not obnoxious about it. Oscar is keenly tuned to his person's emotions. He loves to snuggle and keep you company wherever you are. If there is no room beside you or on your lap, Oscar will lay down by your feet. Please, finish this sentence, 'And, the Oscar goes to . . .' Believe me, the person who adopts this special boy will be receiving something infinitely more valuable than a 24-karat gold statuette, they will be receiving a canine soul-mate. Oscar is a 44 lb 2-year-old male Staffordshire terrier mix. He is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes. Please visit us at www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-31-00054Frank (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Who is fuzzy, has perky ears, and keeps going...going...going??? If you said Frank, you are correct! Frank is an 8 month old, 30 lb, Labrador mix who is a dog of action, you might even call him the Energizer Funny! Frank thrives on plenty of outdoor exercise and like a battery, he also needs downtime to re-energize. His foster parents are professional trainers and take him on frequent hikes with a pack of dogs. Frank is friendly to all his fellow canines out in the field but sticks close to his humans and has excellent recall. He is playful and respectful with the four resident dogs in his foster home and they are teaching him the boundaries ... (Read More)of rough play. Being so young, Frank still has a lot to learn but he already knows 'sit' and 'wait' (before going outside or eating his food), 'stay', 'leave it', and is working on 'down'. Frank walks well on leash and is house trained. He is crated when his people are out and at bedtime and does great. Frank is not an excessive barker or whiner. Access to plenty of dog toys/bones keeps him busy and happy. Frank does not currently live with children but should do fine with older kids who can keep up with him. He has been friendly and affectionate to everyone he has met so far. Frank will really power up your life and his love for you will never need recharging, it will just keep going, and going, and going! Frank has been neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes. Please visit us at www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-31-00051Lila (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Let me tell you a little bit about Lila. Lila is affectionate, eager to please, joyful, playful, well-behaved and puppy-like. She knows Sit, Stay, Down, Come and is learning, Shake. Lila amuses herself with beef bones. Providing Lila with appropriate things to chew prevents her from seeking inappropriate items to chew. Lila is also amused by playing with the other dogs she shares a foster home with. She plays very well with others. She just needs to be reminded to 'use her inside voice.' Lila would probably like to chase the cat, but the cat is dog savvy and stands her ground and Lila is respectful of that. Lila is crate-trained, nearly ... (Read More)housetrained and leash-trained. She is trusted, along with the rest of the pack, with run of the home when her people are gone-she has been left for up to 5-hours with no issues, except for excessive loving on her favorite man when he returns. While Lila does have a loud bark, she is not an excessive barker. She barks no more or less than any of the other dogs. Lila has been around children ages 3 through 11. She needs to be reminded to be more gently mannered around the smaller set, but is just a loving girl. Lila loves everyone but she has a special bond with the man who fosters her. She is a Daddy's girl, for sure. Lila LOVES to go for rides with her man in his truck, but she gets worked up when riding in the car-leading him to wonder if her story of abandonment involved a car ride. Lila enjoys snuggling with her people on the bed before bedtime, but when you open the door to crate, she jumps right in and sleeps quietly until morning. Lila's foster dad thinks that she would be a great addition to any home, but would fit best where she could either have dog siblings, or had humans who worked from home, or could take her to work with them. Lila is a very social dog who wants to be with her pack. Lila was timid when she first arrived in her foster home, but has blossomed into a rather well-rounded dog who just needs someone to continue building her confidence; she will not require much work to fit into just about any home. Lila is a 35lb 1-ish-year-old female Rat-Terrier mix. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes. Please visit us at www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-31-00043Molly (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Molly is a 9 year old Lab mix desperate for a new home. About a month ago, her owner was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. His condition has deteriorated quickly and he is no longer able to care for her. Molly is timid and a very sweet girl who wants love and attention as much as she can get it. She has a flea allergy and loses the fur on her back if bitten. Although Molly gets along with most male dogs she would likely be happiest as an only dog. She has always been fine with cats. Molly is house trained and she is fine loose when home alone. She loves to be the center of attention and treats. She doesn't like the sound of the lawn ... (Read More)mower. Molly also doesn't really have any interest in children so we don't think she would make a good pet for a family looking for an animal for a child. She just isn't the type to play fetch, but she pretty much loves anyone who gives her attention. Molly is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes. Please visit us at www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Blake is a sweet 18 month old pooch that weighs approximately 45 lbs, right now. He is a plump little fluff ball that loves people. Blake came from a high kill shelter in Miami and at the age of 8 weeks old, was taken by a foster mom in Florida (thank you Rhonda for helping us to save Blake) and given a good start during his important socialization period. As such, he is friendly and outgoing with most folks although he does need to have a gradual introduction period. He appears to be on the fearful side, which is a new development with him. With regards to breed, well, we believe that he is 100% purebred, 'we don't know'(our vet ... (Read More)thinks he is a chow mix). His mom (that is also with us) is full grown and weighs 45 pounds. As such, based on his growth rate right now and his mom's stature, we don't believe that Blake will grow beyond 45 lbs. Blake is crate trained, up to date on all medical, and neutered. Blake came into rescue as a puppy and is growing up here, he needs someone to give him a chance. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This charming young fellow is Miles. He is a 1 year old, 48 lb, Border Collie mix. Miles enjoys long walks, tennis balls, toys, and bones to chew on. He knows 'sit' and 'come', and he is learning the word 'off' to contain his excitement when he meets kids. Miles is just so ecstatic to greet them that he jumps for joy! With a little Obedience 101 training (informal or formal), Miles will excel. He is quite responsive to direction and fun to work with. Miles has a medium energy level, he is 99% house and crate trained, and is easy to manage on leash with only a little guidance. He barks to let you know when he needs to go out and to initiate ... (Read More)play. Miles has not been cat tested, but he gets along famously with other dogs of all sizes. Perhaps his most endearing quality is that Miles craves and delights in human affection and acknowledgement so much that he practically melts into you when you pet him. The joy and devotion in his eyes can soften the hardest of hearts. Miles is a fine looking, athletic, intelligent companion waiting for his family to bring him home. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. Please fill out a foster or adoption application on our website: www.pottersangelsrescue.org Adoption fee applies (Less)

Foxhound Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We are keen believers in the enduring resilience of dogs. They seem to have an infinite capacity to forgive and love regardless of past events. Kindhearted Kinley is no exception. Before she joined our rescue, she was attacked by a group of dogs. Her body still bears some scars, but her gentle spirit is completely intact. She now lives in a devoted foster home with 3 other dogs and they all play and sleep together in peace. Kinley even sneaks through the cat door to mingle politely with the feline inhabitants and to sample their food. Kinley does not live with children but she loves to be near her people, their attention, and petting. She ... (Read More)likes to lay next to a person and fall asleep. Kinley can sometimes be a little shy or timid in new situations but gentle reassurance boosts her confidence. Kinley knows 'sit', eats her meals slowly and calmly, and takes treats ever so softly. She is almost adept at housebreaking, crate training, and leash walking. When her foster family is out, Kinley has free roam of the home and lets herself out the doggie door to the fenced backyard. Like most puppies, Kinley has spurts of energy for serious play followed by periods of deep napping. She can be mouthy and barky during play, also typical of young dogs. Kinley loves to be outdoors stretching in the grass and basking in the sun. Tender and peppy, Kinley will make an exceptional companion to her forever family. Kinley is a 4 month old, 30 lb, Hound mix. She is spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. Please submit an adoption or foster application to www.pottersangelsrescue.org Adoption fee applies (Less)

Will come when called, especially when called for dinner . . . otherwise, prefers not to be bossed around. Falls in love hard and fast, with the right woman. I don't mind sharing the home with other friendly canines and would likely even be fine with cats, but I will admit I am not much of a 'player' and other dogs might consider me boring.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Nick-e came to Almost Home Dog Rescue from a high kill shelter in Florida. The veterinarian believes that she is about 9 years old but she acts much younger. Give Nick-e a toy and watch her. We believe that Nick-e is a hoarder. Yes, that is right, a hoarder. Nick-e thinks that no toy is safe unless it is in HER crate. Although her crate is stuffed with toys, she keeps it very neat and orderly. She loves to forage through the toy boxes to see what she wants to bring in next. Nick-e does have a couple of special needs. She is not necessarily keen on all other dogs. Upon her arrival, it was discovered that Nick-e had severe issues with ... (Read More)her intestinal system. After trips and conversations with the veterinarian, treatment with various medications (and no resolution), it was determined that Nick-e probably had many food allergies. She was switched to a raw meat diet (chicken) and has done famously. Although some might not agree with this type of protocol, Nick-e really would need to be continued on this diet in order to avoid her health issues. (Because she was an owner surrender, we believe that the health issues could have been something that her previous owners could not resolve)She is a very happy go lucky kind of girl that dreams of having her own family someday.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Dessa is a 5 year old, female, Shepherd mix whose family can no longer keep her. Where she's been living she's had limited space causing her to be overweight and needing to release her energy. With proper exercise, structure, and training she would thrive. When Dessa first meets people she is quite animated and wants to jump up on you but calms to sit and receive petting and rubs (which she loves). She 'talks' like a Husky and when she meets other dogs she will give a verbal greeting, have a good smell, followed by a full body wiggle, and then she's ready to play. Her family reports that she has lived with other dogs and cats and with proper ... (Read More)introductions gets along well with them. Dessa has lived with teens and met younger children and was well behaved with them. Dessa has been spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. We are looking for a foster and/or adoptive home for Dessa.

Plott Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This pretty little native Vermonter is Magnolia. But, she goes by Maggie, because when you can save two whole syllables in a word, you do! Maggie excels in, well, everything. She is smart and eager to please, and knows: sit, down, get out of the kitchen, bedtime, outside and come. Maggie is crate-trained and housetrained and walks well wearing a gentle-leader harness. She has also developed great recall and enjoys (and needs) a good 5-minute run around the yard before bedtime. Maggie is playful and puppy-like. Her favorite toys include balls, tug-ropes, squeakies and stuffies, and she loves to play tug and wrestle. Maggie gets along well ... (Read More)with all of the other animals in the household, and with proper introductions, she also accepts additional fosters into the home . . . with each introduction, the next one is easier. Maggie is even tolerant of the chickens, although it would not be wise to leave her unsupervised with them...after all she is still a hound and a hound is a bred to hunt, so they remain penned and she leashed around them. Maggie loves everyone. She is good with children of all ages. Whether they want to play fetch with her or just snuggle. But, Maggie isn't nearly as confident as she appears. She does need for the humans in her life to be in control . . . to be assertive and respectful and provide her with a secure home with rules that she can follow. Maggie has run of the house normally when her people are home. When visitors arrive, she is crated, and only when she is calm, is she allowed to experience proper introductions. Maggie, a hound, if you recall, can be 'talkative,' at times. Like, when alerting her people to bikers and runners passing by, or when tattling about the misdeeds of others . . . 'it wasn't me, mom, but guess what _____ did?!' Maggie may never be completely at ease with strangers, but with each new exposure she learns how to conduct herself. Maggie's foster mom describes her as one of the most loving girls ever. She will curl up next to you, stare into your soul with her deep dark eyes and let you stroke her long soft ears. Ask her what she wants and she will offer you a quick kiss. Maggie craves companionship with other animals and people. Won't you welcome sweet Magnolia into your pack?

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Vermont
    Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
