Facts about Shorty

  • Breed: Pomeranian/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Shorty is a sad case. He is an 11 year old pomeranian mix that weighs about 6 lbs. Shorty needs to find a wonderful retirement home that will be able to manage his special needs.

He came to us with a multitude of health issues. Back in 2011 he fell out of a moving car and broke his femur. It was repaired with a pin, but that pin has since broken. Unfortunately, the orthopedic specialist doesn't believe repairing it will be successful. Amputation is also not an option as his opposite rear leg has a bone weakening issue which would not support his body. He puts weight on and uses both legs, but he is unstable and cannot walk long distances.

He also came to us with a perineal hernia, which required an extensive surgery to both tack down his internal organs to his abdominal wall, but also repair the weakened muscle wall. In another unfortunate turn of events, Shorty has been experiencing some bladder leakage since the surgery. He sometimes will dribble during his sleep or on the way to take him outside. This may improve as he continues to heal from his surgery, but it may not improve.

Shorty is a sweet boy who has the softest fur ever and enjoys being pet. He is a happy boy and gets along with other dogs. He would love a home with a lot of love and minimal physical activity.

Shorty is looking for his angel that will look past his physical disabilities and into his heart. Do you think you could be the person to help change Shorty's life?

About Perfect Pooches Adoption Agency

About Our Rescue Group...

A rescue organization dedicated to helping you locate and adopt your "perfect" pooch.
No one, or nothing, is perfect....this includes dogs, but we firmly believe that there is a "perfect" dog for everyone. This doesn't mean our dogs will not have accidents in the house, or bark at times you don't want them to, or chew on your good shoes. They are dogs and they will require training and structure, but their flaws make them truly unique, beautiful, and "perfect" for the right family.

Perfect Pooches Adoption Agency (PPAA) is dedicated to working with each family to ensure we try to find a dog that will be a match with your lifestyle, needs, and wants. If we do not currently have a dog that is a match we will do our best to help approved adopters locate a dog that would be a better fit.

Our pooches are rescue dogs that deserve a second chance. Please consider opening your heart and home to a new companion today!
