Rio's Story...
Rio is an adorable nearly 2 year old Pomeranian guy. When he first meets someone he’s a little shy, but quickly gains confidence. He’s good with kids and other dogs…the big ones intimidate him a bit.
Rio is very smart and learns quickly. He knows “sit” and will roll over and over in a circle on command. This guy has a lot of personality that comes out when he feels at home. We think he might enjoy a home with another small dog to play with, and preferably a home with a fenced yard.
Rio is finally benefiting from some consistent potty training and is responding well.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rio, a Gig Harbor Pomeranian dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian for sale in Gig Harbor, or seeking a Pomeranian dog from a breeder in Gig Harbor.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gig Harbor already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Gig Harbor breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pomeranian breeders who help with Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gig Harbor paves the way for another one to be saved.
