Bailey is a 7 lbs. and approx. 12 years old. A typically lifespan for a Pomeranian is 14-16 years.
He loves rubbing up against your leg for scratches and belly rubs, very cat-like. He knows the word “outside” and goes in and out of the doggie door with no problem. The only time he barks is for food, otherwise he is quiet as a mouse. He would be an excellent apartment dog.
Since his teeth are all gone, he obviously should eat soft food, but he does grab kibble from the other dogs bowl. The vet said he was in pretty good overall shape, has minor cataracts but still sees ok, and he has a strong heart. You should see him hop about like a little deer. It’s very cute with his unusual gait. Look at him frolicking in the yard in his video.
He has blossomed! It took longer for him than any other foster we’ve ever had. What took 4 days for others took 4 months for him! Finally, after 7 months, he has started sleeping in the bedroom. Normally fosters are sleeping in bed with us on the first night. I’m not sure he ever had a “pack” before. We took him to the mall at about 4 months and he was rubbing on everyone. He is a strange little guy. He doesn’t like to be held for a long time or to sit with you on the couch. After you’re done rubbing his belly he retires to his bed. He puts up a huge fight when trying to groom him. He is very happy to see us when we get home and comes over to “tap” us with his front paws. He has to tap both of us (we carpool to work). If one of us is lagging behind because we’re getting the mail or something, he goes to the door looking for the other one. We have gotten a few kisses out of him, but it’s hard for him to reach his tongue up with no lower jaw to support it. The few times he has given kisses we were either laying on the floor with him or were holding him higher than our nose level.
He would do best in a home with older, low key, people. He is content to just eat, sleep, and hang out. There are some rescues that seem to exude gratitude for a full belly and warm bed, Bailey is one of those. He personifies contentment. He loves going out on his leash for short walks and cruising Stony Park Mall meeting and greeting. His favorite is to run around in the big yard.
As a senior, Bailey’s adoption fee is $250.
