Our handsome boy, Fritzy, will charm folks who fancy the diminutive, upstart Pomeranian breed. At the age of five, this beautiful boy wound up in NYCACC, where he made quick friends with shelter workers who contacted us on his behalf. We were delighted to welcome Fritzy into our Rescue, and he has adapted pretty well to Foster care.

Fritzy's owners surrendered him to the Manhattan Shelter, after their lives were uprooted by an overseas move. He didn't adapt particularly well to shelter life, and was quickly rerouted to us for further behavior evaluation. We found Fritzy to have the usual bevy of quirks that Pomeranian folks marvel at in their tiny toughies. He is extraordinarily loving and affectionate to his people, but Fritzy has absolutely no idea that he is a 20 pound dog.

We often see a healthy dose of the Napoleon complex in Pomeranians, and Fritzy is no exception. He is prone to running his mouth at dogs much larger than him. Fritzy needs the kind of adopter who will make some demands on him, and not coddle his "too big for his britches" shtick. Fritzy needs strong leadership, and a charasmatic 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. Fritzy would not be suitable for a large, bustling family, with small children. He may do well with some dog savvy cats.

Fritzy 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. Fritzy is in optimal health, and he is neutered. He has received routine vaccinations, and has tested negative for heartworm, and tick borne diseases. He has been dewormed, and is on appropriate preventatives.
