Maxwell's Story...
We would like to explain that if you are looking for a perfect dog, they are rarely found in rescue. Our dogs often have unknown histories and we do our very best to evaluate each dog with kids, cats, and other dogs as well as determine how they behave in a home. It is important to understand that we have some specific criteria for each dog based on their backgrounds and input from their foster families. The purpose of these criteria is to better match each dog with an appropriate family. While a certain dog might appeal to you based on breed, size, gender or appearance, you may not match the listed criteria. Please understand that we are not trying to make adoption difficult—we are trying to make each adoption successful for the dog and the new family.


If you have children, we suggest that prior to applying for a dog, you view the website The information is excellent and can help you determine which dog would be right for your family.

Maxwell is a 12 pound snuggle bug. He was found locally as a stray dog and never reclaimed. We think he is a pekingese pomeranian mix and he has a medium length silky coat which doesn't shed much. Maxwell is 9-12 months old and he gets along very well with the resident dogs and sleeps on the foot of his foster parent's bed. Max thinks that belly rubs are a good thing and following foster mom around is nice exercise. He likes to play outside too when the weather is nice. His coat is very soft and silky and will be easy to maintain with a brush and the occasional trim. Maxwell will be a good little watch dog, but doesn't over do it. He enjoys curling up on the sofa to help foster mom read or watch TV. Maxwell is truly a very loveable little companion with big dark brown eyes that look at you so lovingly. He will do best with school aged kids but hasn't been checked out with cats. Max is young and should have someone home part of the time. He would be content as an only dog if his human was home at least half the time. Maxwell walks well on a leash, is house trained, and is ready to make some family very happy! He is with a 501c3 rescue and came with no vet history. His $300 adoption fee is to cover his neuter, heartworm test and pill, shots, worming, professional grooming and HomeAgain microchip.

To ensure that this dog thrives in his new home and that the adoption works out for the dog and your family, these are the requirements for adoption. These criteria are not negotiable. If you do not meet these criteria, please choose another dog that will work out better for your family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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