found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Pom Pom barks and scratches at the door when you first leave her alone for the day. Give her a Kong treat toy to keep her occupied. She can also be crated during the day while her owners were at work if she had a Kong treat as long as she had adequate daily exercise. When she is excited she will jump up on you but she is learning “off” and she will get down. Good girl!!
She can “Sit”, “Stay” (needs work on the stay, but she does try! LOL!) “Come” and “Down”. When she is barking, we say, “Pom Pom Quiet”. She can be barky, so we will not be adopting her into an apartment or a home with shared walls. When she is targeting on something inappropriately, we say, “Pom Pom Leave It”. She isn’t always consistent so enrollment in an obedience class would be wonderful for you and her. She has a tendency to run out an open door, so you need to watch her when leaving the house.
She hasn’t been around kids in her current foster home but she has met a couple of rowdy 6 year olds and was fine with them. She is currently living with an adult cat and a small adult dog. We would prefer her to be adopted into a family with a dog of her same size or by herself. She gets along with boys and girls. You need to watch her around cats, she does want to go after them but it’s to play. She probably needs to be around a cat that holds its ground and isn’t easily intimidated.
She is loyal, and will hang out with you following you from room to room.
She isn’t very excited about kibble, and she eats better at night than in the morning. We feed her ¾ to 1 cup of dry food each feeding. When she was rescued she was very thin and she has been slowly gaining weight.
Her coat needs daily brushing, and monthly grooming. She is very good when being brushed.
She is walked daily for about 20 to 30 minutes. She hasn’t been trained to walk properly, but she is getting better at it all the time. She is young, easily distracted, and LOVES to go on a walk so an active adult is preferable.
At night, she wants you to grab a toy and throw it for her to chase and fetch it back to you. She will roll onto her back for belly rubs in between throws! What a character!
If you are looking for an all-around happy, loving dog Pom Pom is the girl for you! Her adoption fee is $250 and she is spayed, chipped, vaccinated and heartworm negative.
