    Hiya BYCer's, I have a 7 1/2 year old choc pomeranian that Iwould like to find a home for. It's not going to be easy I know but I thought I'd give it a try. He is not housetrained very well. He has to be watched. He doesn't poop in the house but he will pee. Another problem, and the reason I would like to get rid of him, is that he has a bad back. Two years ago he crossed the path of my Dal/Lab as my daughter was playing fetch with her. He got trampled. We thought she broke his back but it turns out just a couple of discs are a lil messed up. I have 2 other larger dogs that tend to aggravate his back condition. The pain from the back injury tends to throw him in to a seizure. We do our best to keep them separated but I am scared he is going to get really hurt someday and I'll have to put him down. He is very lovable and has no negative attributes to his personality.

    He is ~ 7 lbs. He needs to go to a home that does not have any large dogs.

    It's along shot but I figured I would give it a try.

    I posted him on Craigs List and this woman kept emailing me she wanted him she wanted him but when i asked to see where she lived she stopped corresponding with me.

    Good luck rehoming your Pom. [​IMG] Unless you personally -know- the person it's hard to trust the new owner would take the time to give your pet the Extra Care it needs. & possibly the extra expense of an elder vet care it'll most likely need with it's health deteriorating as pets do in their Senior years. Also adding the task of house training a 7 1/2 yr old older dog with Special Needs, I Wish you Luck, but the people who will be willing to step up & train & care for your dog properly are few & far between. Sadly sometimes it's more humane to put them to sleep. Especially if it's Older with health Special Needs. [​IMG]

    Rehomeing a dog with dissablilties is ahrd. You might want to look into a Pomeranian rescue group. I own 3 poms myself...and the housebreaking issue is the hardest with the intact males. Im sorry your little one has these issues.....please look around for a rescue...they will be able to get him the help he needs.

    I am on Long Island but I would be willing to drive him a couple hours or so if it meant he'd have a good home.
