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.

      Flynn

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Pomeranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (long coat). Flynn is 4 yrs. and weighs 7lbs. Flynn was surrendered to the shelter from his owner due to severe anemia and a low-grade heart murmur, which might have been associated with the anemia. The shelter reached out to us for help as his health was declining fast. 5/12/17 We rushed Flynn to the VCA in Riverside and they confirmed he was super anemic, and had a dangerously low red blood cell count and extremely high white blood cell count. They treated him with a blood transfusion, antibiotics and a steroid. This helped for a few days but he quickly went downhill. We returned to the vet and Flynn’s blood cell counts were back to the original state. This meant his body was killing of the red blood cells quickly which was bad news for little Flynn. This behavior can be indicative of bone marrow cancer. We opted to do another transfusion, administer steroids and antibiotic shots before accepting that nothing more could be done. UPDATE: Good news from the vet! Flynn's levels are almost in the normal range, so we are reducing his meds and eventually taking him off them. He needs a follow up blood check in about 2 weeks, but that might be it! Flynn is very sweet and loving. He is great with other small dogs (has not been around big dogs that we know of), great with adults and babies (has not been around kids that we know of). He is still learning his potty manners, but is great indoors other than that. Because of his anemia he cannot be a super active dog- going on runs or long hikes- but he does like to run around the house a bit and play. He is very calm and mellow, almost never barks, and is just all around a sweet dog!
