Posted Breed: Dachshund / Pomeranian / Mixed (short coat). ~~Rosie has been here a little over a year. She is very much a sweetheart with all people she meets. But as time has passed it is very clear she has a real problem with all dogs larger than her. Her first instinct is to attack them, and if around other large dogs, it could get her hurt. Additionally she hates cats and will chase if given the chance. She would definitely be best as the only pet. And would not be a good bet at a dog park, walking, anywhere she will come in contact with other dogs. She loves being inside, loves lounging on her pillows, likes to have her nylabones to chew on. Adopter has to have a very secure fenced in yard. She will check the fence for any places to escape. Rosie is part terrier and she chases (up and down inside the fence!!) all cars, kids on bikes and people walking by. And she barks a lot when outside. But she will stop if supervised and we have been working on both the chasing and barking. She will take a special home and a person willing to look past her bad habits, and see the loving girl she is.

More About Dameranian Breed
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.
