Posted Breed: Pomeranian (long coat). WALTER - 6 yrs old, 22lbs (overweight) Walter he is just one big kid! Literally. He currently weighs 22 lbs. but should weigh about 12lbs. He is starting to smile a little more now that he is out of the shelter and feeling a bit better. He has a great attitude for what he is going through. He does have an eye irritation in his left eye that we will have looked at and his hind legs are very weak too. We'll look into that as well. We're still learning about him and we'll update as we can. *UPDATE" - Thanks to his foster, Walter is now down to his perfect weight of 12 lbs. He is so much happier and lighter on his feet. Check out his new video!

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.

      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (long coat). Meet Snapple (male adult Pom )who was rescued from Santa Barbara County Animal Services This guy had been "free roaming" after unkind humans reportedly "gave him away" and he kept returning to them. They say he is "free roaming" and does not belong to them anymore, nor do they care for him. He had been hanging around his former home, and sleeping in a field. Apparently, these unkind humans also have another dog, which was found tied up with shoestrings in the yard. Animal Services allowed them to keep the tied up dog, and took the Pom, deeming him "aggressive" due to him trying to bite when they attempted to catch him in the field with a "catch-pole." He was set for euthanasia due to this. One of our Santa Barbara volunteers we work closely with, assessed him a couple of days ago at the pound, and he was scared. She sat in his kennel, and in just a few minutes he jumped into her lap and started licking her hand. Despite this dog being terribly neglected and scared to death, he responded kindly when given the chance. Since he was set for euthanasia, She decided to pull him.... We will update more once he sees our vet.

      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Irvine, CA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (long coat). Max - 1 year, 5 lbs. *Max will be placed in a home with no other pets or children* During his initial exam, it was noted that Max may have vision problems and slight coordination problems. This may be due to his open fontanel. What is an Open Fontanel?... When puppies (and human babies too) are born, the bony plates of the skull are separated and somewhat soft, allowing them to flex and pass through the birth canal. Generally after birth these plates gradually fuse and become rigid. The last place to fill in and solidify is the spot at the top of the skull where the four skull plates meet. If these plates do not fuse, we are left with a soft, unprotected spot at the top of the head that is called an open fontanel. In some very tiny breeds the fontanel may never close. A fontanel usually closes by 8 weeks but can sometimes close by 6 months. What if the Fontanel never Closes? A dog with an open fontanel may have a serious medical problem called hydrocephalus (water on the brain). Too much fluid on and in the brain creates pressure that effects development of the brain. Symptoms of hydrocephalus include seizures, blindness, lack of coordination, walking in circles, an large round dome on the head. There is no treatment for hydrocephalus. Living with a dog who has an open Fontanel A puppy with an open fontanel can live out a normal life with certain precautions. They need to be in a home without other pets or small children. Care must be taken to avoid heavy grooming around the head, and any injury to the head. Keep in mind the puppy has no idea and will play rough and hard and perhaps fall from a stair or couch. If this happens unprotected spot could possibly cause serious brain injury.
