Shorty's Story...
SHORTY *SPECIAL NEEDS* AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
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?

If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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