|Results of a Google search for a Pom to rescue - no Poms here but suggestions to rescue other dogs|
Whenever I post about getting a new Pomeranian dog, someone suggests checking out the Pom rescue organizations. That happened again yesterday.
I'm all for rescue organizations. I think they perform a wonderful service in providing loving homes for neglected and abused dogs. However, the "Pom Rescue" organizations don't work for me. Rarely if ever, is there a full blooded Pom for rescue. Almost always the "Poms" offered up for rescue are mixed breeds. A Pom/Chihuahua mix is not a Pomeranian dog. A Pom/Yorkshire is not a Pomeranian dog. The Pom mixes I've seen, don't even look like Pomeranian dogs.
I have a friend who adopted one of the "Poms". His dog has a flat face which is not a feature of a Pom. What he has is a Pekinese mix but he calls his dog a "Pom." He's happy so that's fine. However, I'm looking for a real Pomeranian. Call me a snob.
Thanks any for the suggestion. I know where I'll get my new buddy, from a Pom breeder.
