Facts about Hemingway

  • Breed: Pomeranian Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Hemingway, or Heming for short, weighs 15 pounds & approximately 3 years old. He is small & awesome with only a few minor issues: initial fearful equals barking at new people. A low-activity home will be best for him. He is doing great with his leash training! He prefers having another dog with him for the long, it gives him someone to follow. While i don't consider this an issue, his hair is naturally very long hair and must be brushed regularly. Currently he has a summer cut which is adorable.

Hemingway's energy level is great; it's more like that of a medium dog in that it's lower than a lot of smaller dogs. His foster mom compares him to the pup in the movie "Up." He really does aim to please everyone!

With that being said, he loves his humans. He either follows us around or sits next to us or in a lap. He is a big fan of his kennel, aka his bedroom.. He will hang out in his kennel just for fun, plus he stays in it when no one is home and he's unattended. At bedtime, his kennel is moved into my bedroom and he is super quiet. Since he loves his 'bedroom' so much, at bedtime I only have to ask him to come to bed and he prances into his kennel and waits for a pet then gives me a kiss.

His shyness with new people means no little kids in his new home. Currently he lives with 2 big dogs, 1 small dog, 3 young cats, and 1 old cat; it is a harmonious existence.

BRUSHING, GROOMING, AND MORE BRUSHING will have to be a regular routine. Currently he has a summer cut to keep him cool with this hot TN weather. His hair is silky yet it is thick and long. He is very good with it.

Hemingway has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested for heartworms (it was negative). His adoption fee is $150. The adoption fee is more for him than usual due to the amount it has taken to get him fully vetted and groomed.

All Camp Chaos dogs are indoor dogs with outdoor privileges. There are no exceptions. Thank you for understanding.

Thank you for wanting to share your home with one of our rescued pups!

If you are a parent adopting for your children, please remember we do pick the best home for our pups. If there are 2 applications that come in at the same time, for example, and one will be a better fit, that is the one we choose. Many parents pump up their children about getting a specific puppy, and it can be very sad for the child if the particular puppy isn't a good fit unbeknownst to them. We put this disclaimer here because a couple of parents have been upset when a home that used doggy daycare & had a fenced in yard was chosen over crate-all-day without a backyard. Peace.

About Camp Chaos 37206

About Our Rescue Group...

Connecting Good People, for Pup's Sake! We aim to reduce the number of healthy companion animals euthanized annually; we aim to have more animals that are "fixed" than aren't "fixed" in our Middle Tennessee community; we aim for all neglected, abused, and abandoned animals to have a warm bed, a full bowl, and a helping hand at the end of every day.

We are a grass-roots resource helping good people who assist abandoned dogs in the street, at the park, etc. Typically the dogs find us, but it all works the same way. We loan to good Samaritans in the community kennels, give collars, leashes, food, vaccinations, & can pay for heartworm testing as well as getting the dog spayed/neutered.

We only have one chance to make a difference in the life of a stranger and sometimes that stranger will have 4 legs. Please be someone who helps companion animals! Please adopt a rescue! There are thousands of animals literally dying to be adopted. Please don't chain your dog! Please help your community's companion animals live a safe & healthy life!
