We have a pomeranian for almost three years now. She lives at my dads and I'm only there every other weekend. With the recent passing of his wife, Grace is left being outside from about 3 in the morning until he gets home from work at 6 or later every night. She's a small dog and would be in the heat and the cold. She can't be left inside unattended and it's too long to stay in a crate all day. I love her but I just don't think that's a life. If you had a dog that you loved but would have to be kept outside in the 100 degree weather during the summer would you keep her or give to a family you know she could be inside with. We know someone who wants her, they have 2 other poms and are great people, but I'm at a loss.
