Pooh Bear's Requirements:
- Adult home or one with children over 12 years old
- Someone home part of the day to work on house training and exercise
Hi! My name is Pooh Bear. I’m a male Pomeranian mix about 1 year old and 12 pounds that found myself at an area shelter. SBRET took me in so they can help me find a forever home. My foster mom laughed when she saw the entry in the shelter paperwork under "Special Needs" - "Cute!" - that I am! My foster dad says I look like a fox. I get along with both dogs in my foster home even though they find my constant desire to play a bit annoying, especially the grumpy old Chiweenie. But even when he is mad, I just keep on playing! I haven’t met a stranger yet. I love to chase toys and play with my big foster sister. I get in the lap of my foster mom and dad, but usually want to play, not cuddle. I would not be a good fit for someone looking for a lapdog - but if you have an active lifestyle then I am the dog for you!
My foster mom has been trying to house train me so my forever family needs to continue helping me with that. Sometimes I forget that I have to go potty outside, especially when I’m excited. My new owners need to be careful about opening their doors to the outside because I am very quick and can squirt out the door really fast! I don't need a fenced yard as long as you take me for walks to give me the exercise that I need. I would be best in an active adult home or a home where children are over 12 years old as I tend to be "mouthy" and play bite when I get excited. I still have a bit of a chewing urge so my new owners will have to keep stuff away from my reach as I go through this stage. I do nap sometimes when everyone is calm and quiet, but I wake up ready to party as soon as someone gets up. I’m no trouble at night, I sleep in a crate near my foster mom and don’t make a sound. I do ride well in the car. My foster mom noticed that I don't shed a lot but I would need regular grooming to keep my fur nice and soft.
If you are looking for an active loving, loyal, super-cute canine companion, call SBRET and ask about Pooh Bear! I have been neutered, microchipped and am up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm/flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
