BOOMER Good with Kids? Yes - Older Good with other dogs? Yes Good with cats? No House Trained? Yes Crate Trained? Yes Age: 10 months (12/16/12) Weight: 33 pounds Breed: Sheltie Adoption Contribution: $300.00 Boomer is a very handsome young man. He is trustworthy in the house and has not made any efforts to chew up items he shouldn’t. However, he does enjoy stealing t-shirts or towels that are left in reach and running through the house with them. He knows sit, off and no. He is pretty good on leash, but he doesn’t quite get the stay on one side part of it just yet and pulls a bit. He is also good when riding in the car. He likes to look out the window and come up to give you a sniff or kiss periodically, but eventually just lays down and enjoys the ride. Boomer loves to play chase, tug and wrestle with the other dogs in his foster home. He is a little too in love with the cats, so we recommend a home without any for his forever home. He is good with older kids, but does jump some, so he would prefer to not have young children around. Boomer is getting better when meeting new people. He is still unsure of men he first encounters until they can prove to him that they mean him no harm. Some quiet time just hanging out and treats do wonders! Boomer would love to have a big yard to run in and playmates to enjoy it with. He loves to leap up the stairs to the deck at his foster home, so might even enjoy learning agility! If you are looking for an active, sometimes vocal and very handsome young sheltie, then Boomer is the right match for you! Please contact Charlene Molnar at for more information about any of our adoptable dogs or fill out an application now. Sponsor Me! Want to help, but now is not the right time for you to adopt? We understand! Consider sponsoring one of our dogs through our Sponsorship Program instead.

Who We Are

Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio, Inc. (AHDRO) , was formed in December of 2003. AHDRO's mission is to provide homeless collies and other "family friendly" dogs a safe haven where they will receive medical care, nutrition and love until an approved home is found; to reduce the number of unwanted pets by altering all dogs in our rehoming program; to educate the public about the importance of altering pets, and to explain that owning a pet is a lifelong commitment. All AHDRO dogs are placed in the homes of approved volunteers until they are apdopted into homes that have been carefully screened for placement. Each dog is examined by a veterinarian upon arrival, and necessary treatment is administered, or a treatment plan is put into place. Since it's inception, AHDRO has rescued over 115 dogs from as far away as Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee and Illinois. AHDRO works hand in hand with animal shelters to save dogs slated for euthanasia, and those dogs are our priority. Our dogs also come from owners who are no longer able to care for their pet due to illness and other circumstances. They are rescued from situations ranging from the lack of care, supervision, starvation and abuse. Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio is run entirely by volunteers. AHDRO receives no government support and operates with funds generated by adoption donations, fundraisers and generous donations from concerned animal lovers. Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a registered non-profit corporation and donations made to AHDRO may be tax deductible.

Adopting a friend

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs please contact Charlene will send you an adoption application to complete. Or go directly to for an application. Once the application is returned, Charlene can discuss the information on the application with you to determine if you are a good candidate for one of our dogs. Lastly, a home visit will be done either by one of our volunteers or another reputable rescue volunteer in your area. We do adopt out of state but it is up to the adopter to come meet and take the dog home. Sound like a lot to go through for a dog? It really isn't as complicated as it seems and it's the best way to ensure a good match.

Come Visit Us!

MORE DOGS COMING IN WEEKLY. IF WE DON'T HAVE WHAT YOUR LOOKING FOR, PLEASE CHECK BACK! All of our dogs are in foster care in various locations. Once the home visit is successfully completed an appointment will be scheduled for you to meet any dog that matches your families lifestyle. Most of our dogs are in the Central Ohio area.
