He has plenty to give Shorty is about 9 pounds - perfect size for a companion to go for walks, hang out in the yard and enjoy life.

He is crate trained, current on vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped!

More About Pomeranian 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.

      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). We are so excited to have Gerald join our rescue group so that he can find a new home! Gerald's owner no longer wanted him and kept him outdoors all the time. Gerald was matted and longed for attention. His owner gave him to the vet who then contacted us for help. He was groomed to get all the painful mats (and smell) off of him that were causing skin irritation. He was neutered, tested negative for heartworms, and given vaccines. Gerald is one of the happiest and sweetest guys you could ever meet! He is estimated to be about seven years old - perfect age for a wonderful companion! He LOVES to be held and will rub and roll around on people with his tail always wagging. He sleeps at the foot of the bed at night and during the day he loves a comfy dog bed where he can be close and watch everything going on around him when he is not following someone around! Gerald appears to be housebroken, he has not had any accidents in his foster home. We do not guarantee he won't have an accident, dogs need to learn the routine and rules when in a new home. We have attached a short video of him playing and bouncing around at the vet's office after he was groomed and feeling happy that he was clean and the painful mats were gone! We also have pictures of him in a laundry basket of folded clothes - his folding ability isn't very good but he still likes to try and help! More about Gerald: Good with other dogs Good with kids over age of 5 Loves Adults Very friendly when he meets someone Appears to be housetrained Neutered Current on Vaccines Heartworm Negative About six years old Requires grooming Indoor Only with access to potty area There is an adoption fee WE ARE IN ABILENE, TEXAS.
