Meet Ian

~"Just look at those ears!! Ian is a fun-loving 8 month old, 35 lb lab-mix who is looking for his forever home! He acclimated seamlessly into his foster home and became instant best friends with the resident dog, and has been by his side ever since! Ian loves to play with toys, even if no one wants to play with him, often tossing one in the air and chasing after it himself, over and over and over. When he does have a playmate, he enjoys playing fetch (and will release the toy for you) and especially likes a good round of tug-of-war with the resident dog. For the most part, Ian has had free reign of the house during the day (under supervision) and has been accident free for the majority of his stay! He has been sleeping in his crate at night without issue but is certainly happiest when he can cuddle on the couch with his humans and dog friend. Ian walks well on a leash and has yet to meet a dog or person he hasn't loved. He is very smart and is learning some basic commands. Given his social disposition, we would love to see Ian join a household with an equally playful (or tolerant) dog companion. He did well listening and not jumping when he had a 7-year old visitor, but he is still a puppy, so he will need someone to help him work on his mouthy and jumpy behavior when he's excited."

Please email us at to find out if Ian is the right one for you! (Local adoptions preferred - Philadelphia and tri-state area [South Jersey and northern Delaware] only.)

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 and (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 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!
