Polar's Story...
ADOPTION FEE: $300 Approximate AGE: 4 years old Vaccination Date: February 2013 Health: Excellent Weight: 11 lbs Temperament: He was surrendered to the Dallas shelter because the owners said that he is too aggressive towards people. He was just a terrified little boy. Once I took him outside he was much more relaxed. While in the kennel I gave him treats to help him become more comfortable around me. He is very food motivated. While in the kennel he would run and not allow me to touch him (but never tried to bite). I put a leash on him and took him outside. J After walking around outside, you could tell he was more comfortable. I sat down with him and gave him more treats. He let me pet him, he loves getting his booty scratched. He didn’t even react when I uncurled his tail. As we walked back inside the shelter, we walked past one of the workers and he froze. She stopped to allow Polar to pass. When there was a little bit of movement from her, Polar jumped and freaked out a little. Once we got back in the kennels, Polar again became fearful and did not want to go back into those kennels. I think that Polar is not so much an aggressive dog, but a fearful one that needs socialization. Polar is now in a foster home and doing much better. He lets the 11 year old kid in the house pick him up and carry him around. I can do most anything to him now. I don't reach for him... instead... I call him to me and he jumps up in my lap. He has a real happy face and so badly wants to be loved but he still has some trust issues. I will be working with him a lot more. When I took him to the vet, he was not happy with everyone touching him. I had to hang out and keep Polar from biting the vet. I plan to take Polar everywhere I can and help socialize him. He is fearful of the unknown but he trust me to protect him. He has the typical Eskie personality. He doesn't act much like a pom so he could be just a miniature Eskie with no pom in him at all. It's hard to know for sure. The American Eskimo dog is an excellent watchdog, sounding a warning bark at the approach of strangers to protect their home and family. If not socialized and handled correctly at a young age, the Eskie can be shy and potentially aggressive towards strangers. Favorite Activities: He loves to get his booty scratched and he likes to get attention once he trusts you. He is a gorgeous dog with the cutest face. So smart too. Guilty Pleasures: He is crazy for treats but cheese is his favorite. I plan to ask everyone that meets him to give him lots of treats. This will help Polar associate strangers with good things. Crimes: Owner surrender at the Dallas Animal Shelter - Owner said he is too agressive towards strangers but we think he is simply not socialized. He will still bark at strangers but he certainly understands the word NO!! He backs down immediately. He gets along with over half the dogs in the rescue, but there are a couple of dogs that like to pick on him and it causes some fighting. It's mostly a lot of noise and hair pulling. Ambitions: To find the perfect furrever home Dogs being adopted will be: Up-to-date on their vaccinations (including rabies if the animal is over 4 months of age), given a Bortatella vaccination, spayed or neutered, dental if needed, fecal tested, heartworm tested (and treated if positive), given a general dewormer, treated for fleas, and given a weeks worth of Nutro Natural Choice small bites dog food. Phone 214-778-7758 IF YOU WANT TO ADOPT, PLEASE EMAIL: RUFFDOGPICTURES@YAHOO.COM or E-MAIL INQUIRES: Please be patient with us! We're taking care of a lot of kids – The foster kids AND our own. Plus, we have families, homes and even full time jobs. We're giving meds to the sick kids, playing with the healthy kids, and loving on all the kids as often as possible. We're doing their laundry, trying to teach them manners and taking them on walks. In other words, we're just a little busy but we'll return email inquiries just as fast as we pawssibly can. ADOPTION DONATIONS: When you see the adoption donation amounts, we'd like you to know that 90% of the time the donation amount DOESN'T EVEN COME CLOSE to covering that kid's dogtor bills. Most of the kids have a minimum $500 vet bill that we pay out of our own pockets. But the impawtant thing is to get these kids the medical care they need and help them find the pawfect family. That's our top pawority. (Sorry, I just can't resist using 'paw' whenever I can!)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Polar, a Dallas American Eskimo Dog/Pomeranian dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Eskimo Dog/Pomeranian for sale in Dallas, or seeking a American Eskimo Dog/Pomeranian dog from a breeder in Dallas.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dallas 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 Dallas 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 American Eskimo Dog/Pomeranian breeders who help with American Eskimo Dog/Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dallas paves the way for another one to be saved.
