*First we have Tucker. He was my very first Pom and has taught me endless things about the Pomeranian personality. He is really bright orange, sassy, silly, arrogant, and a really good teacher.
*Timber, is number two. It is true what they say that Poms are like potato chips, ‘no one can have just one! She is a little wolf colored Diva. She has the personality of a 5-year-old human child and acts as an older sister to all the others. She is a shadow, agile and will try to get as close to you with out actually ‘morphing’ into you as she can!
*Third is Trevor, our first little blind Pom. He is a little fluffy, fire ball that runs every where with his little nose in the air. He has ears like a radar and a gruffy little bark. He has a little brother type, independent personality.
*Number four is Teddybear. He is the largest one at 22 lbs. He was born to a puppy mill Pomeranian female that was confiscated from a mill bust. He has a cripple rear leg and a thyroid condition that he takes meds for. He is a mischievous little imp.
*Number five is Cubby Joe. Rescued by our Christy at animal control. *Number six is Tracker Jackie. She came from the same puppy mill as Tracker Jack. I believe she is his daughter. Living a life malnourished in a dark, filthy cage having litter after litter, robbed her of her sight and her teeth. However it has not dampened her spirit. She is a lover and loves to be loved. *Seven is our Trapper.He also came from the Sanford puppy mill. Living in the same conditions as Tracker Jack and Jackie his teeth rotted out and he lost his lower jaw. At only 2.5 lbs it is a challenge to keep his nervous tummy calmed and full. He has severe anxiety and will continually run in and out of a room to see if I have left him. I take him with me in the car a lot because he gets so upset when I leave. I can tell he always wonders if I am taking him away for good. Nope, this little fellow has wormed his way in to my heart and he is here to stay. *Eight is Toughie. Tiny little fellow he is with a huge loving heart! *Tiny Tad makes number nine. Thrown out of a puppy mill, toothless and matted, he was found on the side of the road and then turned over to animal control. Furry Friends Animal Rescue of TN rescued him and we adopted him.
*Tootles is ten. She is deaf.
*Toughy is our number 11, all 2.5 lbs of him. He is another puppy mill reject. *Terra looks after us all. She is our 'Pomeranian Shepherd'.
And that is the ‘Who’s who’ of PomRescue.com, Inc this week…..stay tuned!! LOL
What is a Pom? My answer is : A German Shepherd in a port-a-package!
Timber and Seige (our Pom in a German Shepherd suit! LOL)
Tracker Jack, Bebe, Tracker Jackie and Trapper, all came from the Sanford, NC puppy mill. All 4 are toothless, 2 are blind, one is cripple and one has no lower jaw. They have all been here at PomRescue.com, but now Bebe is fostered in with Linda Landers in Texas.
The day I flew to NH and back from SC to pick up Trevor. (Click on picture to enlarge)
Trevor had been in rescue six months before I was allowed to adopt him. He was blind since birth and no one wanted a blind dog.........
Coal and Baxter
Words cannot describe what I saw, felt and smelled when I met Coal and Baxter at the Humane Scociety. Held in crates for months, nearly starved to death, these two flea ridden boys huddles together in fear. Their owners had abandoned them. So nasty, that no one wanted to hold them, they wheeled them out to me in a grocery cart. Ropes of matted hair and feces hung off their tiny thin frames. As I brought them home, I had to roll open the windows to be able to breath.
Baxter's tail was hanging-somehow broken. Coal's front leg, broken and nevers set, still stands at an odd angle.
Two more days in the fetid conditions they were in, I believe they would have been dead. Both are very loving. It makes me think that their previous owner must have cared for them, and then for some reason was removed from their lives.
