Our handsome boy, Foxy, will charm folks who fancy the diminutive, upstart Pomeranian breed. Ten years old, this beautiful boy wound up in an urban high kill animal shelter, where he made quick friends with shelter workers who contacted us on his behalf. We were delighted to welcome Foxy into our Rescue, and he has adapted pretty well to foster care.

Foxy came to us as a languid, lethargic boy, which struck us as odd in a typically energetic breed. We discovered that a massive ear infection had really dug in and caused him quite a bit of misery for some time. As soon his ear was treated, Foxy began to feel better, his energy level perked up, although he is one of the calmer Pomeranians that we've known.

Foxy has the usual bevy of quirks that Pomeranian folks marvel at in their tiny toughies. He is extraordinarily loving and affection to his people, but Foxy has absolutely no idea that he is an 11 pound dog. We often see a healthy dose of the Napoleon complex in Pomeranians, and Foxy is no exception. He is prone to running his mouth at dogs much larger than him.

Foxy needs the kind of adopter who will make some demands on him, and not coddle his "to big for his britches" shtick. Foxy needs strong leadership, and an Alpha pack leader who will continue his obedience work and exercise routine. He would be best suited to a calm, adult home, with, perhaps one or two well-trained, small dogs, so that he can socialize with other dogs in a positive environment. Foxy would not be suitable for a large bustling family, with small children. He may do well with some dog savvy cats.

Foxy has good house manners and is house trained, and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. Foxy is in optimal health, neutered, and has just had a full dental procedure, with pre-op blood work, that will serve as a baseline for adopters going forward. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), and canine flu. He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and is on appropriate preventatives.
