TEDDY!'s Story...

This smiley little man is named Teddy! Teddy is a 9 year old Pomeranian who was originally surrendered due to his owner not being able to appropriately care for him. Teddy was adopted to a wonderful family for quite some time, but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, Teddy's adopters had to return him to City of Elderly Love at no fault of his own. They were heartbroken to part with him! Luckily, he landed a great foster home where he romping around with another dog, and being as adorable as ever. Teddy is now on the hunt for a forever family!

Teddy has great energy and is in perfect health. While shy when first meeting new people, Teddy has a ton of personality to offer once he gets to know you. Because he came from a home where he didn't get a lot of socialization or individual attention, he's a bit shy. We'd expect him to need about a week or so to start showing his true personality once in his new home, which is just about how long it took for him to start acting like a goofball in his foster home! Teddy would appreciate a lower key home with one or two adults who he'll bond with. He loves belly rubs and will do a little dance when its time to go for a walk (which might actually be his favorite activity of all time!). We're pretty sure Teddy could walk for miles and never get tired of it though luckily, he doesn't require tons of exercise. Teddy wasn't housebroken when he came to City of Elderly Love, but he's learning so quickly and almost has it down pat!

Teddy is currently living with a large dog with whom he gets along with well. He's not very interested in playing. He'd rather just chill on the couch with his canine buds. He also lived with other pets in his previous home, but reportedly doesn't seem to appreciate sharing his space with kitties so would do best in a cat-free home. Because he's shy at first, we also think he'd do best in a home without children. Teddy is a little bit of a picky eater, but we're currently working on expanding his culinary horizons. This hilarious, spunky little man is sure to keep his future family laughing - could it be you?

Teddy is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love! He is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and will be microchipped prior to going to his forever home. Interested in meeting him? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
