Rescue Me ID: 16-11-24-00053Daniel (male)

Golden Retriever    Age: Senior

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

    10-11 year old Daniel would love to find a home soon. This old fellow found himself homeless when his owners separated - -- - and neither could take Daniel with them. He then spent time in a temporary home - -- - and was then shifted here. Daniel was very nervous and unsure of himself when he first arrived at Almost Heaven. We were told he had food aggression issues, and that he might be picky with his canine friends. We have seen NONE of this. We do feed Daniel separately - he is a Senior - he should not be forced to compete with other dogs in order to eat - - - but, he has a wide range of doggie friends here - young, old, big, and ... (Read More)small - - - - and he does fine with all of them. Daniel has a reconstructed knee cap - - - - so, though he needs physical exercise, jumping should be discouraged. We have found Daniel to be very loving and sweet. If you would like to be considered as a forever home for Daniel, please submit an application. Approved applicants only are invited out to meet the dogs. You can find our application on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retirever-rescue.org) Emailing it will get the fastest response.

Lab Mix    Age: Senior

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

    9 - 10 year old Spike found himself in a shelter - and really didn't understand why. Well - we don't understand why, either - except maybe his person fell on hard times - - - or became ill. Spike is just the perfect gentleman - - - easy going, but not without spark. Spike is going to go home vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and parvo, neutered, heartworm tested (negative) and on preventative, treated for fleas, and wormed. If you would like to offer this adorable boy a home, please submit an application. You can find them on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org).

Collie Mix    Age: Adult

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

    4 - 6 year old Avalon is a really nice dog. She has good manners, gets along with the other dogs here, is fairly laid back - - - - but, she is missing the one thing she would most like to have - - - - and that's a home of her own. We have no idea why Avalon became homeless - we haven't seen her set a wrong paw with us - - - so, maybe her owners just couldn't take care of a dog any more. Avalon will go home spayed, vaccinations up to date, heartworm negative, and crate trained. We suspect she may have also been a house dog at one time. If you would like to open your heart and home to Avalon, please submit an application which you can ...

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Senior

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

    7 - 8 year old Goliath was someone's best friend for a lot of years - lived in their house, slept on their floor, and thought he had a home for life. We don't know why Goliath was abandoned to a kill shelter in Virginia - - but he was. Goliath really is not a huge dog - - - - but he has a huge heart, and we have found him to be the epitome of what a southern gentleman should be. Goliath has gotten along fine with the other dogs here - will be neutered, vaccinations brought current, and has tested heartworm negative. He is waiting for someone to come take him home - and is accepting applications now. Our adoption applications can be ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-08-00100Taz (male)

Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    3 - 4 year old Taz bonds very quickly to whoever is caring for him. He ended up in a shelter after he bit a bicyclist who was kicking him. We don't know the full circumstances of that incident, but Taz has yet to make a bad move here - and we've handled him in almost every way possible. At this point, we can only assume that he felt threatened, and was trying to defend himself. However - he will not be adopted to a home with young children due to this history. He seems to get along fine with the other dogs here - not really playing, but co-existing just fine. He will go home neutered, vaccinated against rabies/distemper/parvo, ... (Read More)heartworm tested (negative), crate trained, and wormed. He really is a nice dog that just needs a little understanding, patience, and time. He actually is very loving. If you would like to offer Taz a second chance, please submit an application which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    1 - 2 year old Peter is a high energy love bug. We don't usually recommend dogs for joggers, but, this dog just might be the exception (as long as caution is used - and special attention is paid to outside temperatures and running surfaces). He might also be a candidate for agility - or any sport where speed and endurance is a plus. Peter is a total sweetheart - he just wants to be someone's best friend. If you think Peter is the right choice for you, please submit an application which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

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

    4 - 6 year old Sarge is an absolutely INCREDIBLE dog. Why anyone would have dumped him in a shelter to die is totally beyond anything that we can imagine. Our guess is - his owner allowed him to contract heartworm disease, then abandoned him rather than spend the money to cure it. (It doesn't cost a lot to PREVENT it - - - - treating it can be expensive.) We are treating Sarge for Heartworm, and he will be ready to go home with some lucky adopter by Thanksgiving. This dog would be one heck of a holiday gift to yourself. Sarge is neutered, vaccinated against distemper, Parvo, and rabies, totally crate trained, and will be heartworm free ... (Read More)when he leaves us. Sarge is accepting applications now - so, don't delay in submitting yours.

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-08-00091Chaucer (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    1 year old Chaucer is so endearing. He is high energy, but very responsive to training and correction. Chaucer needs an electric fence, be leash walked, a tie out, or fences at least 6' high to be safe. He will climb or jump lower fences. He would make a terrific agility dog - - - he has everything that is needed to excel in that sport. (And, let's face it, he's cute as can be.) Chaucer is a favorite here. He will go home vaccinated against rabies, distemper and parvo, heartworm tested negative, crate trained, wormed, and neutered. Chaucer gets along with most dogs - - - - he does best with females and and other neutered males. ... (Read More)Please give him a chance at the life he so deserves.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    2-3 year old Kurtis is one of the happiest, most well adjusted, loving dogs we have ever had the pleasure of sharing our lives with here. He always has a smile, a wagging tail, and a happy go lucky attitude - - - - in spite of having suffered an injury at some time earlier in his life that injured his back and which causes his hind leg to drag a little. Docs say it's permanent damage now - - - doesn't cause him pain, may develop arthritis later in life. It does NOT impair him in any way - - - - - but he is oh so special. Kurtis would love to have a new home - we think with as few steps as possible - and with older children or adults. ... (Read More)This dog is really wonderful - - - so if you would like to be considered as his new family, please submit an application which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) His fee may be somewhat negotiable to the right family!

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    2-3 year old Lester was abandoned in a rural area by an uncaring person - and left to fend for himself. Lester had a friendly hound to travel with for a while, but when the hound was hit on a roadway and killed, neighbors banned together to make sure that Lester found help before it was too late for him, too. Lester seems to trust women a little more than men. He's an adorable little guy who wants attention so badly - - - - and is so deserving of being loved. Lester will go home with some lucky person vaccinated against distemper/parvo and rabies, neutered, and heartworm tested (negative). He's an adorable little fellow who is learning ...

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    5 - 6 month old Jessie has come a long way since he was rescued. There was no intentional abuse on his owner's part - - - but this little fellow had been locked away inside one room, almost eaten alive by fleas and intestinal parasites, and had no idea what the big world outside offered him. He is now crate trained, is used to a leash (though I won't say he's crazy about it), and has become very much more social. He is still skeptical of strangers initially, but warms up with just a little time and patience. His brother, Slim, is also available for adoption, and fees will be reduced if someone adopts both puppies, though that is not ... (Read More)required. He is too young for neutering at this time, so will be adopted out on a neuter contract. There will be an additional deposit of $100 due at time of adoption (total $375) which will be refunded upon proof of neuter. If interested in adopting Jessie, please submit an application which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) Please - this puppy will not be adopted to families with children under age 8.

Bloodhound    Age: Adult

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

    5 - 6 year old Sniffy has been with us since he was about 6 months old. Sniffy was recruited by the Virginia State Police for their mantrailing program - - - but flunked out the first week. Sniffy would much prefer to sniff his bed than any trail offered to him. Sniffy is totally crate trained, gets along great with all the other dogs here, but like many bloodhounds can be a little possessive of his food bowl. With Sniffy - it's really not a big deal - - - - - and he's very cooperative when corrected. Sniffy does seem prone to developing benign growths, and has just had 3 removed and is doing extremely well. He'd make a great lifelong ... (Read More)companion for some lucky person - if just given half a chance. Like all bloodhounds, Sniffy needs a completely fenced yard and would benefit from some basic obedience training with someone new to make the bonding process complete.

He is a knockout to look at, and as sweet as can be. Zeus will benefit from some obedience classes (as all dogs do), which are a great opportunity for any owner to bond with their new dog.

    7 - 8 year old Willow is just about the nicest bloodhound we've seen for a long time. She's just plain NICE. When the shelter called us about a bloodhound who had been neglected, tied outside for her entire life - - - - then abandoned by her owner -- - - - still tied outside - - - - we weren't sure what baggage Willow would be coming to us with. Wellllll - folks - - - - - this dog has been and is almost PERFECT. She is crate trained (one easy step to house broken), very affectionate, has gotten along well with the other male residents here, and is knock down gorgeous! (Willow doesn't always tolerate competition for affection from the ... (Read More)other ladies here.) So, if you've been "thinking" about adding a bloodhound to your life - this one comes with our highest recommendation. As with all bloodhounds, they MUST have a physical fence. That is not optional - - - - - If you would like to offer Willow a forever home, please submit an application which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) (Less)

    3 year old Woofie had a very rough puppyhood. Born to a mother who was tied to a picnic table and sired by a 'travellin' man', he barely survived, and would not have lived had it not been for the kind heart of a neighbor who took him home, treated him for the neglect he had suffered, and then because of her own failing health, now has had to place him with rescue to find a new home. Woofie is housebroken, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and neutered. He really is a good boy who needs to find a forever home through no fault of his own. If you would like to offer Woofie that home, please submit an application which you can find on our ... (Read More)website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) (Less)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

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

    8 year old Mossey was dumped by his owners; at their local shelter when he didn't get along with their new puppy. (And - the owner LIED - Mossey gets along with absolutely every living thing - he LOVES other dogs - big, small, young, old, and everything in between) Not only was Mossey dumped - - - but he was sick - - - heartworm disease and ehrlichia (tick borne diseases). Mossey didn't know it then, and he's still learning - but that was the luckiest day of his life - and being dumped to die probably saved his life. The kind shelter folks took Mossey for medical care, and started his treatment for both diseases. Mossey has completed ... (Read More)his treatment---- is now healthy and would really love to be someone's best friend.. No dog deserves the kind of life that Mossey endured, no dog deserves to be so neglected that they become sick, and then are sentenced to death at the local shelter by an uncaring, lying, calloused owner. We fully intend to make sure that Mossey's life is a good one now. Mossey is now available for adoption,and we are accepting applications for his new home. You can find our application on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org). Many of your adoption questions will be answered on the cover sheet of our application.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-11-00438Hank (male)

Bloodhound    Age: Adult

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

    5 year old Hank lost his home because he was too friendly. Yep - go figure. (Translation: we're too busy and cheap to train our dog). Hank is currently overweight, but on a diet, he has been vaccinated, heartworm, lymes, ehrlichia tested (negative to all), and is neutered. This is an incredible bloodhound. He is handsome as can be, well mannered (considering he has had NO training, but would benefit from a basic obedience class), and deserves to have the home that every dog should have. Bloodhounds need exercise. They are NOT couch potatoes - without exercise, they can become inventive and find ways to entertain themselves. ... (Read More)Bloodhounds DO benefit from obedience training. Bloodhounds are GREAT family companions for those who commit to taking the time and energy to train them and exercise them properly. If you would like to offer Hank a forever home, and have a standard fence at least 4' high (all bloodhounds need fences), please submit an application (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-15-00039Orion (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

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

    8 year old Orion's owners split up and divorced - - - - - and he was left homeless. After spending considerable time alone in a house with just other animals and a caretaker coming in to feed and water, Orion was taken to a high kill shelter where thankfully, the personnel there saw what a fine older gentleman he really is. (Several of the other dogs/cats from this home weren't so lucky.) Orion enjoys the company of other dogs, and is very mild mannered. Orion's ears were impacted with debris to the point that he was almost completely deaf. It took hours to clear away enough of the impacted material for us to even find his ear canals. ... (Read More)The neglect of his ears led to chronic ear infections - - - which he still battles. And, this poor old boy does have some bowel issues now, too - - - and would need to be housed where cleanup is easy as spontaneous bowel movements can (and do) occur. Orion would be best served living in a home where he had immediate access to outside (dog door?) - and where (on nice days) he could spend a good deal of time lounging outside. Orion needs a special home - - - and a special owner. If you would like to offer Orion a special forever home, please submit an application which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org).

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Shelter Favorite! Biscuit Basket is estimated to be between 6 - 8 years young - - - - and is a very endearing dog. Biscuit landed in a rural shelter when his elderly owner could no longer care for him - and his two canine housemates. The housemates quickly found new homes, but poor Biscuit, who took a little while to warm up to strangers, was left behind. Biscuit gets along well with all the other dogs here, is playful, and even a little good naturedly mischievous. He is learning just how great it can be to be a dog and - - - - - he is worth it. If you would like to give our Biscuit Basket a forever home, please submit an application ... (Read More)which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org).
