Look who is looking for you! We bring 65 dogs and pups to St. Louis every Saturday. WE are at PetSmart in O’Fallon on the first and second Saturdays and PetSmart in Chesterfield on the third and fourth Saturdays. Check our Facebook page on Friday to see who is coming and when we will be at PetCo St. Peters. If you would like to meet this pup, just let us know.

Tiny little pups, Ruby, Rosie and Rudy are just as cute as can be. Mom is a Pom and dad, a dachshund but I don’t see the Dash in them. They are “modified Poms” – hair not as long but definitely a Pom coat. No extra length in their little puppy bodies but they might be short for their breed. These pups are very little and will likely be between 10 and 12 pounds when fully grown. They are too small to be in a home with children under 5. If you are going to be gone for an 8 hour work day, someone needs to be able to come in and give them a midday outing – food, attention, and an opportunity to go out to potty.

Very cute! Very sweet! Playful and happy, if one of these little cuties is the pup for you, just…

Go to our website Takeafriendhome.org and click on the link to the application. Complete and send. For more information, call Deanna at 573-889-9691 or Cynthea 573-714-4232. You can email us at dogs@takeafriendhome.org. We are in St. Louis every weekend for an adoption event and delivery. If you are in the area, your pup can go home on Saturday. Check our Facebook Page for our weekend schedule.

These pups have had all of the vaccines possible to date. Rabies, spay/neuter needs to be done between 4 and 6 month. Proof of altering is required. We can recommend low cost options in your area. If not altered by 6 months, we will take your pup to our vet and have that process done for you.

Housetrained? Too little, these kids will do best with an inside option until they are bigger. Of course if you are home to show them the door, they will catch on very quickly. For your pup to be successful: use a crate, go out with your dog and praise “right action”, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.

Adoption Fees and Payment Plans: We take credit cards and checks. Payments can be arranged with a credit card. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back during the first month and refund your adoption fee less $75. To hold a pup, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit if delivery is not made during the same week.

About the breed: The Pomeranian is a lively little dog. Intelligent, eager to learn, very loyal to its handler and family. Some Poms think they are much larger than they actually are and do not hesitate to tell much bigger dogs how powerful they are. It is an excellent watchdog with a resounding bark. Poms have a tendency to be reserved and bark at strangers. They are alert, curious and busy: one of the most independent of the Toy breeds. Poms have a delightful nature and do not cling to their handlers. Proud and happy, they are good at learning tricks. The Pomeranian must know the owner is the boss, or he will not listen. The Pom is a wonderful companion dog. The breed's docile temper and affectionate nature endear it to many. Its vivacity and spirit make it well-liked by persons who do not usually care for toy dogs.

A lively and sweet natured creature, the Dachshund is a dog that makes a loyal and devoted pet for the right owner. Well suited to both inexperienced and experienced dog owners, they are adaptable, intelligent, and sociable. The Dachshund is not the right choice for those with little time to dedicate to a pet, as they do need love, attention, and companionship. Training should not prove too much of a challenge, as the Dachshund is quick to learn, eager to please, and responsive. However, he can have a very possessive streak when it comes to his belongings and food. The Dachshund has a great sense of humor, and can be a very entertaining and cheerful pet to have around. The sharp bark of these dogs makes them effective watchdogs. He tends to get along well with older, gentler kids. The Dachshund loves to be around other Dachsies, and with early socialization should get along fine with other pets. justdogbreeds.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby Pomshund, a St. Louis Pomeranian/Dachshund puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian/Dachshund for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Pomeranian/Dachshund puppy from a breeder in St. Louis.

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