Posted Breed: Pomeranian. See FOSTER HOMES NEEDED's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Foster A Pomeranian Today! Too many Pommys are sitting in cold shelters, are being neglected and/or abused, and are no longer wanted by their current owners. Opening up your home temporarily to these Angels allows us to help save one Pom at a time! Without foster homes in rescue, many Poms don't stand a chance and are often euthanized for shelter space. PPR is a very reputable rescue and take pride in the love and care that we give to each and every one of our rescued Poms. We provide all medical care from spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchips, heartworm and fecal tests to any other care the vet recommends, such as X-rays, blood work, thyroid panels, dental work, casts and splints, special diets, etc. All we ask from our fosters is to provide a safe and nurturing environment to help heal the physical and emotional trauma that many of these pups have gone through. If you can open your home to just one Pom, then that's one life saved. Please don't delay. Fill out our foster app at http://PawsitivelyPom.rescuegroups.org, call us at (717) 350-8346, or visit us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PawsitivelyPomRescue.

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: Chiranian
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed. Little Tiffany is a tiny, super sweet, 5 pound, 5 year old Pomeranian Mix. Tiffany is part of the 27 Tweethearts that came to us in July along with her two six week old puppies after we removed her and 26 other Poms from a local hoarding situation. Her puppies have grown and found their forever home, so now it is momma's turn. Tiffany is in great health and just had both her knees repaired on September 5th. This little beauty gets along great with other dogs, is leash trained, crate trained, and 90% house trained using pee pads and going outside. Due to the horrendous conditions Tiffany came from she is very shy, but comes around quickly with sweet talk and cuddles. All the dogs from this case have a fear of men, but it can easily be overcome as long as the man of the house is her primary caregiver and gives her lots of treats. She will need some nurturing, but we have seen her blossom and know she will continue to bloom in a forever home. To adopt Tiffany, please submit an application at PomPaws.org. Her $250 adoption fee ($150 for senior citizens 65+) includes core vaccines (rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordatella), heartwom/lyme test, microchip, blood work, fecal test, spay, dental, bilateral patella repair, and all the love you can handle!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian. Chulo is searching for his forever home! This gorgeous boy is 7 pounds and 7 years old. He is the sweetest, funniest, and most loving pommy boy you will ever meet! Chulo came to us after his elderly owner could no longer care for him and the extended family noticed he may have some health issues. Poor Chulo is diabetic, but easily maintained on a small dose of insulin twice a day. Even though he is newly diagnosed, he is well regulated and accepting of his shots. We truly hope his diabetes does not scare potential adopters away because it is a manageable illness and he has a long life ahead of him. Chulo loves all humans, but does not tend to get along with other dogs so we are seeking a home where he is the only canine. Chulo enjoys playing, getting belly rubs, and even likes to romp with the kitty cat in his foster home on occassion. Chulo does wear a belly band as he does mark on rare occassions. He is crate trained, leash trained, and even knows commands. This little guy adores older children as well so we can see him being a good fit for almost any home. We will teach you everything you need to know to care for Chulo so won't you find it in your heart to give this amazing little guy his happily ever after? To adopt Chulo, please submit an application at PomPaws.org. His $250 adoption fee ($150 for senior citizens 65+) includes core vaccines (rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordatella) heartworm/lyme test, fecal, microchip, blood work, neuter, dental, and all the love you can handl e.

      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (long coat). We are pleased to introduce our big beautiful boy, Frankie! This guy is the best dog you could ever ask for. Unfortunately, Frankie does suffer from diabetes so he needs insulin injections twice a day. He may only be 6, but he has the mildly elevated kidney levels. We have successfully treated Frankie's failing kidneys with supplements and his kidney values improve with each blood draw. He is now at a point where he is stable on the medications we are using and will need to be maintained with the medications to ensure his kidney levels do not go back up. Frankie is a laid back Pom that weighs 16 pounds. He is great with other pets in the home, loves children, and loves to snuggle! This guy is the definition of a love bug. Don't let his diagnosis fool you either because he is full of life. He carries around his toys, runs and plays in the yard, and just wants attention. Don't let the diabetes deter you, giving two injections a day is easy as pie with this big sweetie. We will teach you everything you need to know to care for Frankie. Won't you give this darling boy his happily ever after? To adopt Frankie, please submit an application at PomPaws.org. His $250 adoption fee ($150 for senior citizens 65+) includes core vaccines (rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordatella), heartworm/lyme test, microchip, blood work, diabetic supplies, renal panels, subcutaneous fluid supplies, and all the love you can handle .

      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (medium coat). Arf! Arf! My name is ChaChi. I once was blind, but these nice people had my cataracts removed so now I can see again. I weigh 12 pounds and am about 7 years old so I have lots of love left to give. In fact, I am a total lover and snuggling is my favorite thing in the whole world! I do have diabetes, but please don't be scared as it is completely manageable and I am well regulated. I need insulin injections twice a day and I am a good boy for my shot. I love my food and even dance for treats. My house training is coming along, but I just had a bladder stone removed so my bladder does leak sometimes. This is an easy fix by letting me sport around my fashionable belly band. I am looking for a home that will snuggle me all night long and give me lots of rubs. I can be a little vocal when other dogs try to invade my snuggle time. I sometimes give a little growl and that usually scares those other pesky poms away so I can have you all to myself. Don't you worry though, I will only growl and never go past that point. I do go in my crate willingly to eat or for a treat. I walk like a professional on a leash and even like riding in the car. I just want a family that will love me and give me the best life possible. Won't you be my forever family? We will teach you everything there is to know about maintaining ChaChi's diabetes. To adopt ChaChi, please submit an application at PomPaws.org. His $250 adoption fee ($150 for senior citizens 65+) includes core vaccines (rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordatella) heartworm/lyme test, microchip, blood work, cystotomy, diabetic supplies, cataract removal, dental cleaning, and all the love you can handle.

      Truffle

      rescue
      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (medium coat). Truffle is a 10-year-old male Pomeranian and weighs 12 pounds. Recently, he developed diabetes, but was quickly regulated with insulin injections every 12 hours. He lived with his original owners his entire life and came to us after their divorce. He knows quite a few commands and loves to turn in circles for treats. Truffle is looking for a human companion to call his own! Truffle is completely housetrained as long as he is kept on a schedule or has access to a doggy door. He loves to go for walks, car rides, and outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing, or just every day errands. We envision Truffle with a single man or woman who is looking for a loyal friend. He will follow you everywhere and wait by the door for you. Truff does have a few quirks that are easily manageable: he can be toy aggressive with other dogs, but that seemed to diminish after the first week or two and easily corrected; he's quickly learned that grooming is fun and enjoys being bathed and brushed; he will bolt out the door if given the chance, but a firm "sit and stay" command does the trick. Truffle also has an issue with large objects like assistive walkers or vacuums moving in front of him and he will move to bite the object, but not the person. He looks for guidance and loves to please. We would love to see Truffle in a home without young children or elderly adults and with a fenced yard. Truffle is neutered, up-to-date on rabies, parvo/distemper, and bordatella vaccines, microchipped, has been dewormed, fecal and heartworm/lyme/erlichia/ and anaplasmosis tested, and has been started on monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption donation is $250. If you are interested in adopting Truffle, please visit our website at PomPaws.org for an application.

      Posted Breed: Pomeranian. Hi I'm Cam or as my foster mom calls me, Charlie! I'm an older gentle soul that is looking for a not so young family. I like watching tv, hanging out, and taking an occasional stroll around the yard. I'm not into leashes I prefer to just roam freely around a fenced yard so you must have a fence. I get along great with other dogs & even cats. I'm still nervous around people so I would prefer if your love, attention & patience with me was in a quieter home. You see I came from a puppy mill and was forced to breed for ten years of my life without human contact. This is why I am so scared. My hips are arthritic since they kept me in a cage for so long and I never got to stretch out my legs or even run. Now I am taking each day in and trying my best to enjoy new things. I would love if a family without young children would help me life my life to the fullest since I missed out on so much. Cam is a 10yo cream sable pomeranian that weighs 8 pounds. To adopt Cam, please submit an application at PomPaws.org. His $250 adoption fee ($150 for senior citizens 65+) includes core vaccines (rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordatella), heartworm/lyme test, microchip, blood work, neuter, and dental cleaning.

      rescue
      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (medium coat). Eli is a handsome 8-9 year old, 11-pound Pomeranian. He was picked up as a stray by a local shelter and transferred to our care with a tail injury. It was determined that he got his tail caught in something while he was out running on his own and he did what any animal would do to get free…he broke it. Fortunately for him, the break did not sever the blood supply and he was able to keep his tail. Unfortunately, his tail is paralyzed for life and will always hang straight down. We feel that he likely has bits of sensations as you will catch him chasing his tail from time to time. He has full control of his bladder and is 100% house trained. He has 99% control over his bowels, but every once in a while…maybe once a week…we might find an uncontrolled nugget. As long as he is trimmed short around that area, he requires less maintenance than our Pom with full coats. Eli is a pretty cool little dog who is fairly independent. He loves to chase laser lights just like a cat. He will bark at things he doesn’t understand…like the vacuum or Christmas lights. He loves to sleep above your head on the pillow. He is great with other dogs…he doesn’t play but coexists beautifully. He will let you know when he is hungry or needs to go outside. He would do best with a single person or couple without small children in the home. His only quirk is that we don’t think he was petted, groomed, or handled often. You will need time to develop trust with Eli before you can easily pet him below the shoulder blades. He would bite us at first, but it really didn’t hurt. Now we can talk him through it and let him know everything is just fine. Because of this, we also would not place him into a home with senior citizens. We hope you can see through the baggage and straight into Eli’s soul, because he really is a good, loyal companion. Eli’s adoption fee is $250 and includes his microchip, current vaccinations (Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Bordatella), HW/Lyme test, and recent dental cleaning. He was neutered prior to coming into our care. To give Eli a forever home, please submit an application at PomPaws.org.

      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (medium coat). Hey guys...my name is Chewy and you know what they say about Dynomite?! It comes in small packages...just like all 6 pounds of me!! They say I'm an old fart, but I say who's counting!! They say I'm 12 or 13 and I say that's better than 80 or 90! Hmph...the nerve. Let me tell you a little about me. I used to live in Wisconsin and then my owner, who didn't take the best care of me, posted me for free on Craigslist. Can you imagine me...on Craigslist. Oh the nerve!! Some lady named Karen came and saved me before I ended up as lunchmeat. She said I was in really bad shape, but I was so happy to be away from my crappy owner that I was jumping for joy...so much so that I knock a canine tooth out when I jumped off the couch. It didn't hurt, but Miss Karen was worried because it left a hole straight into my nasal cavity. She then told me she knew what she had to do...then told me the story of rescue. I then made my way to Pawsitively Pom Rescue in PA and they knew what to do to get me better. It took a really long time since I was in such bad shape. After I was healthy enough to have surgery, they took me to a special dentist. He pulled all my teeth and fixed not 1, but 2 holes in my mouth. Then these people took my manhood! Hmph...really?! Well, I didn't miss them too much, but I sure do miss my teeth! See, I'm feisty and I like to make sure all other animals know that I own everything in the house. I will tell them about themselves if they try to so much as touch a toy, lay on my loveseat, or get to the treats before me. I also like to eat my food, then I will eat other dogs' food, then I will pee on whatever is left...HaHaha! They say I am housebroken, but I also like to let the other dogs know that I own everything in the house by marking my territory. My foster mama doesn't worry about the damage my toothless butt will do, but she always has one eye on how the other dogs will react. So, she says I need a home without any other animals. I also am the biggest lover you will find this side of California!! I will be your best friend and love you til the cows come home. So my foster mama says I should be adopted by someone who is home more than not. That's who I am in a nutshell, now let's discuss my medical history. As I said, I have no teeth so you don't have to worry about dental bills. I have a grade 2 of 6 heart murmur, but my age will likely catch up to me before my heart ever does. I also have Alopecia, or black skin disease, where I'm missing A LOT of hair on my torso. My foster mama says you should be prepared to provide Levicrine (thyroid meds for my hypothyroidism) and buy me lots of warm clothes to keep my butt warm in the winter. I say at least I have more hair than I did because most men my age are losing theirs! Hmph...some people! My biggest problem has been chronic bronchitis, collapsing trachea, and lung disease with two pulmonary bullae. Those are air filled sacs in my lungs, which will likely never amount to anything. I do, however, have the notorious Pommy cough. So my foster mama says you should be prepared to keep stock in Torbutrol (cough med), Theophylline (bronchodilator), and a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement to help strengthen the cartilage in my trachea. She also gives me Zyrtec, although I'm not sure it really does anything. She said I need to live in a clean home with an air purifier(s) and without any carpet. She knows I like to rub my nose in the carpet from one end of the house to the other after a walk and it seriously aggravates my lung condition. I say she's just a worry wart, but she does know what's best. I've been in rescue for a year, but that's because my foster mama couldn't give me up after my first adoption failed. She said I liked the carpet too much. I say...what's an old man to do for fun! Hmph...I'm not an old, old fart...I could live for years!!! But I know my foster mama loves me and she wants to have someone who has more time to spoil me...more than I already am of course. So, she also says, that I have to go to a home in the southcentral PA area. Do you need a baby to love and spoil...albeit a feisty, funny one?? Then what are you waiting for??? My adoption fee is $250 ($150 for senior citizens 65+) and includes my neuter, dental, vaccinations, heartworm/lyme and fecal tests, and microchip. Apply at PawsitivelyPom.rescuegroups.org. Ask for me....Chewy....Chewy for President I say!!!
