During his initial exam, it was noted that Max may have vision problems and slight coordination problems. This may be due to his open fontanel.

What is an Open Fontanel?...

When puppies (and human babies too) are born, the bony plates of the skull are separated and somewhat soft, allowing them to flex and pass through the birth canal. Generally after birth these plates gradually fuse and become rigid. The last place to fill in and solidify is the spot at the top of the skull where the four skull plates meet. If these plates do not fuse, we are left with a soft, unprotected spot at the top of the head that is called an open fontanel. In some very tiny breeds the fontanel may never close. A fontanel usually closes by 8 weeks but can sometimes close by 6 months.

What if the Fontanel never Closes?

A dog with an open fontanel may have a serious medical problem called hydrocephalus (water on the brain). Too much fluid on and in the brain creates pressure that effects development of the brain. Symptoms of hydrocephalus include seizures, blindness, lack of coordination, walking in circles, an large round dome on the head. There is no treatment for hydrocephalus.

Living with a dog who has an open Fontanel 
 
A puppy with an open fontanel can live out a normal life with certain precautions. They need to be in a home without other pets or small children. Care must be taken to avoid heavy grooming around the head, and any injury to the head. Keep in mind the puppy has no idea and will play rough and hard and perhaps fall from a stair or couch. If this happens unprotected spot could possibly cause serious brain injury.

About Southern California Pomeranian Rescue, Inc. - Studio City

About Our Rescue Group...

In January 2009, SCPR, a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) was recognized by the state of California. We are made up of a handful of volunteers who desire to save Pomeranians every day. Our Pomeranian's have been rescued from kill shelters and relinquishment situations. All of our Pommies are pre-screened for behavioral, temperament, and health conditions prior to placement in a forever home. This includes being spayed/neutered.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is quite simple. We request an application, home visit and a signed contract upon completion of the adoption. We do allow a week to have the dog live with you in your home before the adotion is finalized.

Frequently asked questions:

1) DO YOU SHIP OUT OF STATE/COUNTRY?

Yes we can send ADOPTED Poms (Not Fosters) out of state but it is highly subject to local rescues doing a home inspection and your veterinary reference. Transport out of state has to be arranged by the adopter. Typically adopters fly in and carry them on the plane home. You are looking at $100-500 adoption fees, $40 a crate, $50 health cert and about $300 for your dogs flight. You can call Delta or American to get prices. Transport costs are case by case especially depending on your timing of booking the flight for your dog.

We do not adopt out of the country at this time. Unfortunately with animal rights not being what they are in this country, and the inability to preform our inspections and reference checks we cannot make exceptions to this regulation.

2) HOW DO I GET AN ADOPTION/FOSTER APPLICATION?

There are a few ways you can obtain a Form. Once you do, you can Copy n Paste the form on to a new email and then email us or print it out and snail mail or fax it to us. Here's where you can find the Form:

3) HOW MUCH ARE YOUR DOGS?

Adoption donations are between $100 and $500 depending on age. This is to help with the cost of transporting them, providing them with medical care and sometimes lengthy kennel costs amongst other things. These Pomeranian's have been rescued from kill shelters and surrender situations. ALL of our Pommies are pre-screened for behavioral, temperament, and health conditions prior to placement in a forever home through our Vet's. This includes being spayed/neutered and microchipped.

4) WHERE CAN I SEE PICTURES OF DOGS FOR ADOPTION OR IN NEED OF FOSTERING?

5) ARE YOU A NON-PROFIT?

Yes in 2009 we were recognized by the State of California as a Not-For-Profit entity.

6) I NEED TO FIND A HOME FOR MY POMERANIAN?

We will be able to take your Pommie and find a new loving home for him or her. Just fill out our Surrender Form found on our website (Contact Us page) or here in our Notes Tab section. Copy n Paste it on to a new email or snail mail us.

7) DO YOU HAVE "TEA CUP" POMERANIAN'S?

Per the American Pomeranian Club (APC)"... the average size of the Pomeranian is from 3 to 7 pounds, with the ideal weight for the show specimen being 4 to 6 pounds." So no, we do not as Tea Cup Pomeranian's do not exist. But certain breeders on-line and in the papers will tell you they do in order to sell you 3-4 lb Pommie claiming it to be a "Tea Cup". The APC does not recognize the "Tea Cup" class and any reputable breeder (With a Guarantee) will not have a "Tea Cup" in their litters. We do not have Tea Cups, but on occasion we do get small Pommies as little as 3lbs. Keep checking back or contact us!
