    Eli

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Pomeranian
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pomeranian (medium coat). Eli is a handsome 11-12 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 a stray and broke it to free himself. Fortunately, 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 month…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 under the bed. He coexists with other dogs beautifully…so long as they do not have high energy. He will let you know when he is hungry or needs to go outside. He would do best 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 his stomach or legs. He would bite us at first, but 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 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 dental cleanings. He was neutered prior to coming into our care. To give Eli a forever home, please submit an application at PomPaws.

    Atticus

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Pomeranian
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pomeranian (medium coat). Atticus came into our care after he was turned in as a stray to a high-kill shelter. He is a senior fella and is approx 10-12 years old. Atticus loves to give kisses, loves to be petted, and deserves a furever home. When Atticus first came into our care, we could tell that he had never lived with other dogs, but he has gotten used to them. He has no issues co-existing with other furry critters. Just like the character in To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus is very even-keeled and doesn't get too worked up about stressful situations...unless it's grooming day. We had to remove all of his teeth with the exception of his two bottom canines, and he has no problem showing you just how much life is in him...if you try to groom him. Hopefully, your vet has a groomer on staff that might be able to lightly sedate him to accomplish the task; otherwise, he creates an overwhelming situation for himself. Atticus is also one of those quirky Poms who acts like he doesn't know how to walk on anything but carpet. There are vinyl floors in his foster home with runners throughout; however, this is not the ideal situation for him to spend his life in. He is completely housetrained, so a home with carpet would be on the top of his wishlist. As with most seniors and Pomeranians, Atticus does come with some health issues. He has the notorious collapsing trachea, which is controlled with Theophylline and Torbutrol or Tussigon twice a day. A fenced yard is required so that a harness does not irritate his trachea. He also receives medication and a low-protein diet for his aging liver, and Gabapentin as needed for arthritis. Atticus also has mature cataracts and is hard of hearing, which doesn't really seem to affect him much. Atticus weighs 12-14 pounds, is current on vaccines, neutered, and microchipped. He's looking for a furever, carpeted home where he can spend his golden years. You can follow his progress on our Facebook page at .facebook/PawsitivelyPomRescue. If you would like to adopt Atticus, please apply on our website at .PomPaws. Our adoption fee is $250 and discounted to $150 for senior citizens.

    Albert

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Pomeranian-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Hound / Mixed. He sure doesn't look like it, but a DNA test revealed that Albert is 50% pomeranian, but the 12.5% hound DNA seems to be all his appearance! Albert is a 2-year-old beautiful boy who was surrendered to a West Virginia shelter, along with Einstein (a Pomeranian). Both boys were matted to the skin and had to be shaved at the shelter. They were left alone for over two months in a home alone after their owner was hospitalized with a terminal illness. The neighbor would feed the boys by opening the door and throwing food into the home. To add to their trauma, an animal control officer used a catch pole to remove the boys from their home. We don't know how they were treated by the owner, but both were extremely fearful when they arrived and each day are coming out of their shells. Albert will only be available as a long term foster to adopt home without other dogs. We will pay for a behaviorist to help the foster family work with Albert to get him rehabilitated into a playful sweet boy we know he can be. A fenced yard is also currently required until we know for sure that Albert is leash trained. Albert is taking daily Prozac and his demeanor has slowly been improving! He no longer hides as much, is exploring the yard more, and even barking at the squirrels. Albert is a commitment and will take lots of time and patience for him to come around, but ultimately he is a big baby that wants lots of attention. He does prefer a female owner, but tolerates the men of the home. It has taken since September, but he does sniff the man of the home and allows a little petting here and there. We would love to see Albert in a home of his own to grow and become the dog we know he can be. Albert and Einstein are not bonded and can be adopted separately. Albert weighs 23.5 pounds and is ready to move on from his past! He is neutered, current on vaccines, microchipped, and has been heartworm/lyme tested. You can follow his progress on our Facebook page or apply to adopt at PomPaws. Pawsitively Pom Rescue has a set $250 adoption fee.

  • Karmyn - Pomeranian Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 04/20/2019

    Pomeranian Dog For Adoption in Harrisburg, PA, USA

    Karmyn

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Pomeranian
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pomeranian. Karmyn is a sweet girl that came from a NY kill shelter. Karmyn was diagnosed with Cushings shortly after arriving at PPR and we have started treatment. She was spayed, had her dental, and had a hernia repaired. She will be having a consult on May 10th to repair her patellas, but we aren't sure what the surgeon will say since her back legs are so bowed and the Cushings disease makes healing difficult. Since starting treatment, Karmyn is now house trained and really just loves being with her people. She cannot do steps well so she is carried wherever her foster pawrents go. Karmyn is leash trained, rides perfectly in the car, and just wants to soak up all the love she can get! We really want to see Karmyn in her forever home soon and she would really fit in anywhere. To adopt Karmyn, please complete an adoption application at PomPaws. The $250 adoption fee ($150 for senior citizens 65+) includes bloodwork, ACTH stim test, spay, dental, hernia repair, fecal, heartworm and Lyme test, core vaccines (Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and bordatella), and all the love you can handle!

    Sparrow

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chiranian
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Sparrow was on the euthanasia list of a NY Kill shelter because he was ripped from the only family he ever knew and thrown into a big scary shelter where he lost his mind. The poor guy was so terrified he wet himself just by the shelter vet examining him. PPR pulled Sparrow just in time and when he arrived he was still fearful. It took a few weeks for the true Sparrow to make his way out and boy oh boy is he a quirky guy. Sparrow is leash trained, knows basic commands, and is crate trained. He is very apt to approach strangers but then freezes and growls. He takes time to warm up to new people and takes time to allow those in the home to show human to human contact without him trying to intervene. Sparrow needs an active home that likes to walk and a home that likes to let him be apart of the family. We are still working on housetraining so he does wear a belly bend. A structured environment is crucial for the first month so that he knows his role in the family and as he adjusts he can have more freedom. While Sparrow is smart, he can be bullheaded and despises grooming. We take our time with him and use positive reinforcement for grooming and he has slowly made progress, but a muzzle is necessary. If you like the quirky characters then Sparrow is the guy for you! To adopt Sparrow, please complete an adoption application at PomPaws. The $250 adoption fee covers his fecal, heartworm and Lyme test, bloodwork, urinalysis, and neuter.

    Leah

    rescue
    Breed: Chiranian
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Leah has spent her life as a breeder on an Amish farm and was able to roam the fields freely. She is super sweet and gentle and loves to be petted and snuggled. She is a quiet gal, but loves to howl at emergency sirens when the pass nearby. Leah has obviously fended for herself for a very long time. She has a significant scar that runs half the length of her body, and we also removed a BB from her front elbow and an engorged tick from her neck. She is pretty darn healthy considering where she came from. Leah did test positive for Lyme Disease and yeast in both ears, both of which have been treated accordingly. She also had a few mammary masses removed, which is a testament of how many litters she had during her life on the farm. Leah also has typical grade III patellas; however, she does not favor either of her back legs and we do not suspect them to ever cause her an issue. She is current on all vaccines, spayed, and microchipped. Leah needs a suburban life and a home with a privacy fence. Because she was able to roam the fields freely in her past life, a country environment or a fence that she can see through is just too much temptation for her. Her anxiety level increases, and we think she would do all she could to escape the yard and run into the fields. Now that she's in suburbia with a privacy fence, she is as calm as a cucumber when she is outside in the yard. Leah is overweight at 14 pounds and is approximately 10-11 years old. She arrived a week after Rosie and Fritz (who are/were also posted for adoption). To give this gal a furever home, visit PomPaws and apply online. Her adoption fees is $250.

    Breed: Pomeranian
    Sex: Female Female
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pomeranian. 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 PawsitivelyPom.rescuegroups, call us at (717) 350-8346, or visit us on Facebook at .facebook/PawsitivelyPomRescue.

    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    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. 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.

    Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Pomeranian / Mixed (medium coat). Fritz has spent his life on an Amish farm and is looking for a loving home with his mama, Rosie. He is a super sweet and gentle boy and loves to be petted and snuggled. He is a quiet boy, but loves to howl at emergency sirens when the pass nearby.

Fritz is white in color, weighs 8 pounds, and is 5 years old, according to the previous Amish owner; however, our trusted vet believes he may be younger.
