Meet Rusty, a Rescue Pomeranian

I have to admit hat I knew little about Pomeranians before I began to foster this handsome dog, and that I had the mistaken impression that these were - for lack of a better term - "foo-foo" dogs for little old ladies.

Rusty is a 3-year-old, 10-pound male Pomeranian who somehow wound up at an area dog pound. Luckily a Planned Pethood volunteer happened to be visiting the facility in question, as most of the area agencies euthanize dogs who overstay their welcome. Rusty, however, is anything but a "foo-foo" dog, though he will gladly let you pamper him, I am sure.

This fine looking young man is quite the affectionate pooch, and he has a gentle, easygoing manner about him. He gets along well with our other dogs, and bonds quickly with people. He seems fine around children, and loves to romp around the yard, and he likes playing with the various dog supplies we have around. He seems to be housebroken, though most dogs go through a readjustment phase, so his new owners will need to be patient and positively reinforce the outdoor rituals.

To learn more about adopting Rusty or any other Toledo-area rescue dogs, visit the Planned Pethood website for more details.

Poms are pretty good / loyal 1 person dogs. They pick someone in the family to belong to.
