Adopt a Pom! Help, dog needs new home

Ok I know there are alot of dog lovers on this site so maybe someone can help me.

This summer when I found my Chihuahua he was in the company of a Pomeranian. This dog has been in the care of my neighbor until now. Health problems make her unable to care for him anymore so now I have him back and need to find him a home. He is a beautiful little dog and has a great loving and playful personality. I absolutely cannot keep him ( I allready have 2 dogs and a cat and work full time and it is WAY too much for me and he wont get the attention he needs here) but I feel responsible for him so have taken the burden of finding him a home. I need to do this quickly. I would like to find a home directly rather than go through a rescue but it needs to happen soon. he is young and healthy and up to date on shots. He will need some basic training as he has not been properly trained by previous owners.

here are some pics of him hes a cutie and gets along well with other animals







if anybody has some advice on good resuces or is interested in adopting this little furball let me know.

Bump.

Best of luck finding a home for that cutie, Pancho.

Love your cat! Gray tabbies are my favorite!

He is a cutie.
Maybe post this under the Dusting thread. They are talking about Swiffers over there. That little guy would do well duct taped to the end of a handle


Just kidding, just kidding.....

He's got such pretty eyes!

Have you tried listing him on Craig's?

Pancho, like everybody else so far, distance is a problem, but a cute little pup like that should'nt be a problem-somebody mentioned Craigslist, I agree that would be a good place to start. Its nice to know that you have taken responsibility for him when you really didn't have to.

Bless you for doing the right thing.

LOL ! on the dusting.. his poofy coat is having a hard time in my house... its a rough place for a little ball of poof.... my big dog HATES swiffers BTW... he wants to attack them! ...especially the wet jet... I have to put him outside to use it.... so far he hasn't mistaken little Poof for one yet... he is suprisingly good with little dogs.

We went to the dog park today and I have a few interested parties so I hope one of them comes through. He is an adorable little dog and deserves a nice home.

I am trying to avoid craigslist because there are so many rotten dog owners around here and people who will just use dogs to train fighting dogs or for breeding so I am trying to go through the "dog people" I know. My dog park buddies have been helpful.

I will let ya'll know what happens.

If I didn't already have three dogs I would take him. He is a cutie and deserves a good home and loving owner. I agree about Craigs List not a place to go. Pancho I'm so glad you are taking the time to make sure he gets a great home.
