Ringo and 7 other siblings, along with his parents, were all dumped at a local kill shelter after a breeder died. There are many twists and turns and crazy parts of this story, but let's just say that it's like a soap opera! Initially, we were told the pups were all 6 months old, and the dad Noah (available for adoption) was about 5-7 years old. All the females were adopted almost immediately, and just the dad and three male pups were left (Ringo and two brothers). We wanted so badly to show them a better life, so we scrambled to find fosters and funds and were able to get the dad right away. Then, we were told a Pomeranian rescue came in, took a look at three pups, said they wanted the two purebred looking ones (Ringo and his brother Legs) and would leave the third brother, Ziggy, there all alone. So, were committed to Ziggy right then and there. No way we were leaving that guy behind! Well... funny how things work out. A week later, our transporter was on the way to pick Ziggy up after his surgery, and the shelter calls. Apparently, the Pomeranian rescue backed out at the last minute! Ringo was left behind!! So, again, we scrambled to find a foster and funds, and crossed our fingers that the transporter wouldn't be upset that she is now driving an hour with two pups, not one. In the end, we got Noah (the dad), Ringo (seen here), and Ziggy (see his album). Ringo is the most shy of the bunch. He does cry for a bit when left alone, and appears to crave human contact. He doesn't like when people leave him, but after knowing his history... can you really blame him?? He is a very sweet guy, and if he can find the smallest little nook or cranny to wiggle into up by you, he will lay there and sleep. He needs the most nurturing and TLC of all three rescued poms, so while he isn't a "troubled case" by any means, he probably needs an experienced dog owner with a soft, gentle hand. Turns out, the pups aren't actually pups at all. They are about 1.5 years old (and Noah is only about 3-4 years old), and it looking less like it was a traditional "breeding" situation, and more like a backyard "puppy mill" situation. That makes us even MORE happy we got these little guys. They are as precious as can be, and ready for their forever homes!!!! www.mylongwayhome.org
