Man's Best Friend


Okay here goes nothing. My name is BoBo and I am a problem child dog! I admit that I am stubborn and want everything to go my way. If you let me run the house and do exactly what I want then there will be no problems. If I’m in bed, do not wake me. If I’m resting on the couch, do not ask me to move. What’s so hard about this? I think the rules are pretty easy to follow…just let me be the boss! I am 6 years old and I weigh about 25 pounds. I am a Sheltie/Pomeranian mix and I know I am a beauty. I am looking for a new owner because 1) I am a challenge at times and 2) I have a stubborn streak. Come on! Somebody out there has to want me. Don’t make me beg. I am neutered, current on vaccines and micro-chipped.

Pomeranians can live happily in homes of all sizes. They are small enough to live in apartments or condos, but active enough to flourish in a large home. They should be walked daily to burn off energy, and this helps maintain temperament. They enjoy running, so some yard time every week will be welcome. Poms need to keep their minds active. They are smart dogs and if left to their own devices will get into mischief, so to keep them happy many owners enroll their Pomeranians in agility training to keep both mind and body in tip top shape.
