Sterling Professional

Sterling is a 4-year old, 6.5-lbs  pure bred, neutered Lavender Pomeranian.  He is a wonderful little boy, but needs an experienced Pomeranian owner who can continue his socialization.  His coat grows in a sort of natural lion cut, due to the fact he has CDA (Colour-Dilution Alopecia).  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 (well, hop more like) on leash.

MaizeOrange_zps5e8507b1

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 and is 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 suited for an adult only home as she has been “man-handled” in the past and can be snarky.  She needs someone with Pomeranian breed experience. Maize is not bothered about having another doggie companion in the household, and would be quite happy to have all the attention lavished on her, so she is an ideal “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 them. Maize walks well on leash, although she is more of a homebody and is not crazy about having to go for walkies.  She is crate trained and is both pad and outdoor trained to take care of business.   Her energy-level is moderate to low.

Bayou

Bayou is a gorgeous, pure bred, neutered Blue & Tan Pomeranian who weighs about 8-lbs and is 9 years young.  This gorgeous 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 walks but he adores being rolled around in his doggie stroller!  

Dusty

Dusty is a 2.5-year old, 10-lbs neutered male pure bred AKC Cream Sable Pomeranian.  This boy is on the larger size, but with all his big hair he looks bigger!  Dusty is happy and bouncy and a joy to be around.  He is medium to low energy, so he can go out for walkies (in a stroller as he does not walk on leash), yet can also chill out with you.  He needs someone who loves to groom his huge coat, which will need weekly maintenance.  Pomeranian’s coats should never be shaved, as it can cause the hair never to grow back (post-clip Alopecia).  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-style dog!

Mocha Professional

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 is a “take your dog to work” candidate.

Stevie Rae

Stevie Rae is a 50-lbs Golden Retriever blend who was found as a “stray” and taken to an Inland Empire shelter to wait to see if an Owner would claim her.  No-one came for Stevie Rae, who weighed at the time a mere 23-lbs.  She was also blind.  When taken to our Veterinarian for evaluation, she was found to be diabetic (hence her loss of sight and lack of any body fat).  We immediately started working on regulating her insulin, and taking care of her veterinary needs.  All her blood work came back stellar, so once she was at a safe weight, she was spayed. Stevie-Rae is low-energy, and just wants to be a lap dog and “hang out”.  She navigates around her foster home without any issue and takes care of business outside.  She loves to go for car rides, walkies and trips to the sea side.  Stevie Rae takes insulin twice a day.  The monthly cost for the insulin and needles is around $45.

Harvey Official

Harvey is a darling 1 year old, pure bred, Blue Merle neutered male Pomeranian who is an absolute goofball!  He is very laid back and chill, but does need to have another doggie companion (around the same size) with whom to run around and play, as well as a secure garden in which to sunbathe and take care of business.  Harvey has a HUGE coat, which makes him look bigger than his 7-lbs!  Basically the best way to describe Harvey is as a living Pillow Pet, as he is so soft and mushy!

Paisley Official

Paisley is a pure bred Chinese Crested Powderpuff, who is around a year old and weighs 7-lbs.  She is highly affectionate and quite cat-like in her personality.  She does well with other dogs but her real focus is on her pet parent.  Paisley is not suitable for condo or townhome living. She loves to be groomed and fussed over with her hair and loves to sleep in bed with you!  Paisley does well with cats and would be fine for teenagers and above, due to her delicate frame.
