I started the rescue about nine years ago after my old dog ( border collie mix) died. I tried to foster a pom for another groupbut didnt like not being able to be involved in the adoption process. The first pom that came in was Foxey, I kept her because she was so much work, I felt like I had invested so much in her, I couldn’t give her up. Now, I have learned that we invest that much in each one, in order to make them ready for a new home. 🙂 I usually have from 2-8 poms at a time, sometimes other small breeds. We have had poodles, maltese, peke and some cats. Right now we have four poms and a maltese. I have had four people contact me in the last week with dogs they need to give up, for various reasons, all older and some with health problems. We do not have any consistent funding and would like to see how other rescues do that. I have a groomibng salon where we keep the dogs and I am busy with that. It keeps us from needing fosters and they get socialized too.
I chose poms because I was raised with the breed. My Mother and Grandmother bred them. We always had a litter to snuggle with. I was one of the few children taught to “sit and let the dogs come to you”. These days it would be rare to find families with small children that would be appropiate for a small pom. We do get bigger ones. My girl is 16 lbs. We get them from 2 to 25 lbs.
