Should You Adopt Your Dog From A Pomeranian Rescue Group?

Aug 17, 2007
It's a sad thing in this world, but not every dog finds its way into a perfect home and high energy dogs, like Pomeranians, often need rescue from a mismatch. Some families simply aren't home enough to provide a good environment for a high energy, inquisitive dog like a Pomeranian and the dogs get into trouble when left in the house by themselves. Some Pomeranians develop bad habits or are integrated poorly into the household, causing problems for them.

Fortunately for dog lovers everywhere, there are Pomeranian rescue organizations dedicated to taking Pomeranians out of bad homes and putting them into new, good homes. Most good, dedicated Pomeranian breeders are also heavily into Pomeranian rescue organizations and many of them will take great care in trying to rehabilitate problem dogs while giving them a temporary place to stay until new homes are found.

If you're looking at adding a Pomeranian to your household, do look into Pomeranian rescue as an adoption mechanism. You'll be giving a dog in need a second chance at a loving home and you can feel good about keeping an animal from being put to sleep.

There are several reasons to adopt from a rescue agency. You'll generally get the dog at or near full adult growth. You don't have to worry about it growing larger than your household can accommodate. Likewise, a rescue dog's activity level and health should be obvious. Most rescue dogs have gone through a large screening process to make sure any treatable health conditions have been met and anything that can't be treated will be explained before adoption of the dog.

Most rescue dogs are housebroken, either before they got into rescue or after they got into foster care. And most rescue dogs are mature enough that they won't eat shoes, dig holes in the garden or make nuisances of themselves in other ways.

Rescue dogs of any breed can have issues. Sometimes, the family simply doesn't want the responsibility of the dog and sometimes the dog just didn't fit into the family. When you talk to a Pomeranian rescue operation, try to find out what caused the dog to be placed with them for rescue in the first place. This is, in many ways, more important than your first meeting with the dog, who will likely be a little bundle of nerves and anxiety for having been separated from its former owners. Not all rescue dogs have issues and what may be an issue for one home, may not be one for yours - don't let the prospect of the Pomeranian having issues put you off from contacting a Pomeranian rescue organization.

The dog you rescue may be a cherished, loving and grateful member of your family for years to come!
