Niles was rescued from a high kill LA County shelter where he ended up through no fault of his own. Even though he had a microchip and his previous Owners were contacted they never came to collect him. so we took him in to our rescue. He has turned out to be an absolute delight due to his loving, pleasing nature to women but can be somewhat fearful of men initially, until he realizes they are not going to harm him. Niles is around 3 years old, weights approximtey 6.5-lbs and is a neutered male Heavy Orange Sable Pomeranian X Yorkie blend. He loves other dogs and wants nothing more to do than play or give lots of cuddles to his Pet Parent. He is best placed in a home with another small breed dog. We suspect he will get along with cats just fine as he is a submissive little boy. Due to his diminutive size no large breed dogs or small children, please. Niles is going outside to take care of business. He crates well, walks nicely on leash and is a great, portable little companion.
Magnum was rescued from the Riverside shelter where he ended up, after being found wandering alone in a local car park. This little 6.5-lbs fluff ball probably spent much of his 4 years of life living outside, and was most likely used for stud services. Those days are now over for him and he has been neutered. Magnum has the cutest little bark – it sounds as if he is saying “Mama”! He loves his walkies and car rides and basically being by your side at all times. Magnum would be fine as an only dog as he is more people orientated versus wanting to interact with his foster fur-brothers and sisters, so if you are looking for a playmate or companion for your dog, he is not the right match. Magnum is quite bossy towards other dogs. He would be best suited with a work-from-home professional or semi-active Retiree, without small children in the home. Magnum is not house broken and even though he is working hard on this concept it is not as important to him as it would be to his Pet Parent! He also has some quirks, such as he does not like the top of his head being touched, so we are looking for someone with breed-specific or puppy mill survivor dog experience for Magnum’s ideal placement. Adoption Pending
Shadow was rescued from a high kill LA County shelter where he had been turned in by his Owner at the age of 13 with the comment that she no longer had any time for him. He had little chance of getting out, not only due to his age making him a senior, he was also a black dog so hard to see in the runs, he is missing his left eye, his right eye has a cataract so he sees very little, but his mouth was festering mess of infection. He was basically starving to death as he could not eat due to the pain in his infected mouth. Shadow had a much needed dental, was neutered had blood work and urinalysis done and is now happy and surprising healthy for his age. He lost all but six of his teeth but he can now eat without any pain and is putting on much needed weight – and he does love his food!! Shadow does not ask for much – a soft bed, warmth and good food. He is happy and loves to follow his Foster Mum around the house or just lie contentedly in his pet bed. Shadow would be best placed in a quiet, adult only home with no large breed dogs. He is fine with other small breed dogs and cats and is not a barker.
Moshe was rescued from the Bakersfield Shelter where he ended up due to no fault of his own. We think he is approximately 5 years old. He weighs in around 7.5-lbs, is a neutered male and is a blue and white parti-coloured Pomeranian. He ended up at the shelter with a bad injury to his eye, most likely having been hit by a car. His eye was not able to be saved, but this sweet little boy has not allowed this disability to sour him at all. Moshe will make an ideal lap dog , shopping and walking companion for a quieter, peaceful home without small children or large breed dogs. He does not like cats, as he is scared of them (not that he would ever admit it)! Moshe has successfully passed his Basic Obedience training! Moshe is people-orientated versus dog-orientated so would be quite happy being an only dog where all the affection would be lavished on him.
Sterling is a 3-year old, 6.5-lbs pure bred neutered male Lavender Pomeranian. He is a wonderful little boy but will need an experienced Pomeranian owner who can continue his socialization. His coat is growing in nicely with some homeopathic treatments – he has CDA (colour dilution alopecia) so his coat grows in a sort of natural lion cut! Sterling is best in an adult only home. He gets along well with other small breed dogs, and has learned how to play. Sterling is a happy boy overall and will make you laugh with his bouncy hops as he bounds around the garden just enjoying life! Sterling crates well for travel and when not being supervised and is learning to walk on leash.
Maize is a pure bred clear Orange Pomeranian who was rescued from a high-kill LA County shelter where she had been turned in as a stray. She had a large hernia, about the size of a softball that we found out was her uterus and a deceased puppy when our Vet spayed her and repaired the hernia. At that time she was also given a nice refreshing dental. Our Veterinarian has aged her at around 4 years of age. Maize is very good in the house, crates well, enjoys rides in the car, is not a barker and just likes to be by your side. She is best suited to a home that is on the quieter side with a retired, semi-retired or work from home (at least part-time) couple, or single person. She is best suitable around teenagers (15+ Years) with prior small breed dog experience. Maize is not bothered about having another doggie companion ,and is quite happy to have all the attention lavished on her and would be ideal as an only dog. She will tolerate another small breed submissive male dog, but is a very dominant female and will assert herself as a leader. As far as cats, Maize is not bothered by a dog-savvy cat who is confident and laid back. Maize walks well on leash, is crate trained and is both pad and outdoor trained to take care of business. Her energy-level is moderate to low.
Wynton is a 10 year old Toy Poodle who was surrendered as “a stray” by his former Owners stating he had seizures. So far we have not observed any seizures, he eats like a werewolf and is a happy little camper. He has had a clean bill of health from our Veterinarian, has been neutered and given a long overdue dental and is on supplements to help with his walking as he has a fairly bad luxating patella on his rear left leg. Wynton is low energy, likes to motor around at his own pace, is wonderful as far as house manners, loves car rides and being carried, or pushed in his stroller. This wonderful little 4-lbs of love is best in a quieter adult home where he can be lavished with love and attention. He is not a barker except when he needs to take a facility break. In Our Hospice Programme.
Bayou is a gorgeous pure bred Blue & Tan Pomeranian who weighs about 8-lbs and is 7 years young. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. This little boy came in to our rescue after he was retired from a breeding programme. He is very shy, but is slowly leaning all about the world around him and needs a quiet, patient person to bring him out of his shell. Bayou is missing the paw on his back right leg, so he cannot go for long walks but he adores being rolled around in his doggie stroller!
Little Ms. Evie is an 18-month old, 5-lbs pure bred clear Orange Pomeranian who can be best described as a social butterfly! This little girl loves to be in company and get lots of attention! Her ideal home would be one where she gets to go everywhere with you – shopping, to the beach and running errands! Evie is crate trained, walks well on leash (although she much prefers to be carried) and gets along well with other small breed dogs.
Dusty is a 3-year old, neutered male pure bred Cream Sable Pomeranian. This boy is on the larger size, weighing in at around 9.5-lbs but with all his big hair he looks bigger! Dusty is happy and bouncy and is a joy to be around. He is medium energy so he can go out for walkies, yet can also chill out with you. He needs someone who loves to groom his coat, which will need weekly maintenance. Pomeranian’s coats should never be shaved, as it can cause the hair never to grow back (see Magnum’s photo). A good Groomer will never consent to shaving a Pomeranian’s coat. Dusty is crate trained, travels well in the car and is not a barker, except to alert. He would be fine in a busy household with children over the age of 10+ years, who have previous small dog experience. He is very submissive with other dogs and we suspect he will be fine with cats, who no doubt will have the upper paw with him. Dusty does not walk on leash, he is terrified, so he is a stroller or carry-on style dog!
River is a year old, 12-lbs Pomeranian / Sheltie blend that we rescued from a Craigslist advert. She was handed over to one of our Volunteers without any questions asked…A very dangerous thing to do as she could have ended up in a research laboratory or a pit bull bait dog. River was not correctly socialized by her previous Owner’s so she is slightly nervous and reactive on-leash. She is very intelligent, but that intelligence needs to be harnessed positively and she will do anything to please. She is best placed with a female Owner as she is somewhat nervous around men. River gets along well with other dogs her size, was very respectful of cats when introduced and would be fine with older children who have herding breed experience.
Violet is a 3 year old (approximately) white spayed female Pomeranian who weighs in around 9-lbs. She is a very happy girl who loves to do the “pommie dance”. She gets along well wioth other small breed dogs and loves to be around people. We think she will be fine with older, respectful children who have had previous small dog experience. Violet is crate trained, walks well on leash and is trained to take care of business outside.
Mylee is a darling 8-year young, 7-lbs piebald parti-Pomeranian who is just a darling. She is low energy for a Pomeranian but loves to give twirls of happiness when she makes eye contact with you! Mylee would be best placed in an adult only home, or one with older, considerate teenagers in a quieter home environment. She gets along well with other small breed dogs of a similar size and cats. She is people-orientated versus dog-orientated so would be fine as an only dog. Mylee is quite stunning with her HUGE coat and is highly portable, so she would make an excellent travelling companion. Mylee does not walk on leash, she is an expert doggie stroller rider though and fits beautifully under arm. She is the sort of girl that goes everywhere with you….. Adoption Pending
Mocha is a darling 5 year old, 6.5-lbs spayed female Chocolate Pomeranian who is just luscious. She has a plush, enormous coat that will need weekly grooming to keep manageable. Mocha is very friendly and loving and would be best in an adult only home, or a home with teenage children. We doubt she will have any issues with cats. She gets along well with other small breed dogs, but is people-orientated versus dog-orientated so would be fine as an only dog. Mocha crates well for sleeping, travels beautifully in the car and has decent house manners.
Cami is an approximately 6-month old, spayed female Min Pin who is currently available for adoption. She weighs in at 10-lbs at this time which we suspect is her adult size. Cami is a sassy little girl who is very people orientated. She gets along well with other small breed dogs, is doing well with her crate training and house training.
Sunkist is a darling 9.5-lbs 6+ year old female spayed Chihuahua who is amazing. She is quiet, easy going and just loves to hang out. Kissy gets along with all the other dogs in her foster home and we suspect she will not have an issue with cats either, although we have not cat tested her. She travels beautifully in the car, walks nicely on leash and is crate trained. Her foster home has had no issues with her in the area of house training. Her energy is moderate-to-low level. She would be an ideal companion for a work-from-home professional, semi-retired or retired household. She goes outside to take care of business, but will also use a pad if necessary. Don’t miss out on this amazing little girl!
