Hi, I’m Diggy! I’m a tan and white male senior Pomeranian looking for love. I am about 8 –
9 years old and about 17 lbs. underneath the fluff. I’m a good boy, sweet and looking for
love. I get a little excited around new stimuli, but classical music helps to calm me down. I
was rescued by Pioneers for Animal Welfare Society just in the nick of time, as I was on the
shelters TBD (To Be Destroyed) list for that morning :-( Turned out to be my lucky day
instead! I was on the TBD list, even though I am so handsome and loveable, because I suffer
from allergies. I have very sensitive skin due to my allergies so I don’t like to be brushed
much. I’m neutered, microchipped, have had all my shots, and am generally healthy except
I’m allergic to a lot of things and need antihistamines and a special diet. I’m looking for a nurturing foster who might be willing to cook for me, or a loving permanent home.
