Niles

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 selective with whom he likes as far as men initially.  Niles is around 4 to 5 years old, weighs approximately 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.  Niles get along with cats just fine as he is a submissive little boy and has a healthy respect for them!  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.

Sterling Professional

Sterling is a 3-year old, 6.5-lbs  pure bred neutered male Lavender Pomeranian.  He is a wonderful little boy but needs 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.

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.  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 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 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.

Bayou

Bayou is a gorgeous pure bred Blue & Tan Pomeranian who weighs about 8-lbs and is 8 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!

Dusty Playing

Dusty is a 2.5-year old, 9-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 is a joy to be around.  He is medium 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 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-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 has decent house manners.  

Sunkist

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 available.  Don’t miss out on this amazing little girl!

Marnie & Her Muffin’s Halo

Check Out Marnie

Marnie is a darling, lovable Papillion blend whom was surrendered at an Inland Empire shelter by her previous Owners who stated they had no time for her.  She had been left to live in a cage outside after their other dog attacked her, causing her to lose her left eye.  Marnie is around 6 years old and weighs about 7-lbs.  She has fine, silky hair and wants nothing more than to lay on your lap or snuggle with you.  Although she is blind she gets around without any issue and takes care of her business outside.  She is very independent!  Marnie gets along well with other small breed dogs, and we suspect there will not be an issue with any other animals in the household, mainly due to her blindness, but her personality is so sweet she does not have a mean bone in her little body..  

Stevie Rae

Stevie Rae Feeling Fabulous

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 very 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 and His New Playmates

Harvey is a darling 11-month old blue merle Pomeranian who is an absolute goofball!  He is very laid back and chill but does need to have another doggie companion 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 Puillow Pet he is so soft and mushy!

Annie Official

Annie’s full name should be “Annie Oakley” as this little girl is a little pistol of affection and energy!  She is super smart and bonds very deeply with her Pet Parent so she would be fine as an only dog or in a multiple dog household where she is going to be able to get most of the attention.  Annie prances on leash, loves car rides and is highly portable at 5.5-lbs.  This girl has “big hair” – she is very tiny under all her coat!  This girl can go to the office as she has not met a stranger in her life and is totally a Pombassador for her breed! 

Cassidy Official

Darling Cassidy

Cassidy is a purebred Black & Tan Pomeranian who weighs in around 7-lbs. He is a proper little gentleman, quiet, unassuming and just there to give love.  he does well with other dogs, and has no issue with cats.  He is best placed in an adult home, and would be an ideal “take your dog to work” candidate.

Hannah Official

Ms. Sassy Hannah

Ms. Hannah is a PomChi (Pomeranian X Chihuahua Blend) who is around 10 years young and weights about 6-lbs.  She is a super lap dog and would be ideal for a “shut in” situation as she is low energy and just wants to hang out with you on the couch.  Hannah is a good alert dog who will let you know if someone is snooping around but she does not bark unnecessarily.  Hannah is ideal as an only dog, as she is quite bossy. 

Paisley Official

Paisley is a pure bred Chinese Crested Powderpuff who weighs around 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.  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.

CiCi Has Something To Say!

CiCi ((A4710423) was rescued from the Castaic Shelter in June 2014 and is coming along very well.  CiCi is around 9 years old, and is a cream sable Pomeranian.  She has a hard time walking because at some point in her life one of her back legs was broken and was never given any veterinary attention.  Over the years this has affected her other hind leg so she walks very wobbly.  She was also suffering from very bad skin from a long-standing flea infestation and most of the fur towards her rump had been rubbed off.  Our Vet said she had been bred constantly and looked like a classic example of a puppy mill, or backyard breeder dog. CiCi was found in the City of San Fernando, abandoned alone in a field.  We have no idea how long she was fending  for herself, which was very dangerous for her as she was also in heat and could have been attacked by a dog wanting to breed with her. The shelter Volunteers took very good care if her, giving her a bath and removing some of the worst matts.  Through all of that ordeal, CiCi was, and is, a happy girl and loves people .. Her little tail keeps wagging – all she wants is Love…..

CiCi is now 100% healthy and is excited about the prospect of having a wonderful furever home – could that be you?
