The North Shore Animal League is a good option when looking to adopt a rescue Pomeranian. The organization frequently has purebred Pomeranians available for adoption. The National Mill Rescue also frequently offers Pomeranians rescued from puppy mills.
The Pomeranian is a descendant of sled dogs from Greenland. The breed stands between 7 and 11 inches tall and weighs in between 3 and 7 pounds. It is an energetic and intelligent breed, and Pomeranians are very loyal to their families. Pomeranians also get along well with other dogs and household pets, especially if socialization starts at an early age. Short walks and playtime outside are sufficient to keep the Pomeranian healthy and active.
