Posted Breed: Pomeranian (long coat). JOJO - F, Pomeranian, approximately 5 years old and weighs 7-10 lbs. This girl is a special needs type of girl. We believe that she was used to breed and then dumped when she was no longer of use. She came to us with in terrible condition. She had a very bad ear infection and she has NO bottom teeth! She is very sweet but not very trusting of people, but she is getting better every day. We know that she will make someone a great little dog once she lets her guard down and sta...rts to trust again. She deserves a family where she will be spoiled and given all the attention she wants. She is up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed in the near future. If you are interested in adopting this great little girl, please contact Siggi at 580-678-7980 (after 5:00 pm) for more information on this great dog. **Will only adopt out after she is spayed. $125.00 Adoption Fee.

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: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lawton, OK
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). LIP - M, Chihuahua Mix, approximately 2 years old. Lip was transferred to the Humane Society from the Lawton shelter in hopes of finding his true forever home. He is neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped. He was extremely stressed out at the shelter, so his true character did not have a chance to shine through. And even now, when he meets new people, he is ferocious, feisty, and extremely untrusting of new people. Once he warms up, he is brimming with personality, fu...nny, and playful, and he loves to cuddle - his mere 13 pounds make him the perfect lap dog. He is kennel trained and housebroken - and he walks PERFECTLY on a leash without marking his territory everywhere. He gets along well with the other dogs in our home - ranging in size from miniature dachshund to Golden Retriever -, and he is loyal beyond belief. Sudden moves still startle him, but time will teach him that he is safe again. Lip is an independent gentleman who is not fond of the company of children - he would be perfect for a mature home. If you would like to meet Lip, please contact Sabine at (580) 483-3410
