Arrival Story: We have always had more than one dog until about 3 years ago when we lost one of our two Minpins. At the end of 2009 I started looking for another Minpin or other small breed dog to join our family and contacted several rescue organizations who all turned us down because we have small children. We also looked in several shelters near us and did not find what we were looking for. After spending many hours on Petfinder we finally found a rescue who had a litter of Pomeranian puppies in their care due to unfortunate circumstances and I applied... and they wrote back and invited us to come for an interview and to see the puppies on adoption day! Bear was the last puppy left out of the litter of 5, the only orange in a litter of black and tan siblings. After spending an hour answering questions and watching how the kids interacted with Bear they approved our application and let us take him home where he is loved as a member of our family.
Bio: Bear is enjoying life in our family and we are so happy to have him with us, he is a great little guy!
