Eli is a handsome 11-12 year old, 11-pound Pomeranian. He was picked up as a stray by a local shelter and transferred to our care with a tail injury. It was determined that he got his tail caught in something while a stray and broke it to free himself. Fortunately, the break did not sever the blood supply and he was able to keep his tail. Unfortunately, his tail is paralyzed for life and will always hang straight down. We feel that he likely has bits of sensations as you will catch him chasing his tail from time to time. He has full control of his bladder and is 100% house trained. He has 99% control over his bowels, but every once in a while‰'Ű|maybe once a month‰'Ű|we might find an uncontrolled nugget. As long as he is trimmed short around that area, he requires less maintenance than our Pom with full coats. Eli is a pretty cool little dog who is fairly independent. He loves to chase laser lights just like a cat. He will bark at things he doesn't understand‰'Ű|like the vacuum or Christmas lights. He loves to sleep under the bed. He coexists with other dogs beautifully‰'Ű|so long as they do not have high energy. He will let you know when he is hungry or needs to go outside. He would do best without small children in the home. His only quirk is that we don't think he was petted, groomed, or handled often. You will need time to develop trust with Eli before you can easily pet his stomach or legs. He would bite us at first, but now we can talk him through it and let him know everything is just fine. Because of this, we also would not place him into a home with senior citizens. We hope you can see straight into Eli's soul, because he really is a good, loyal companion. Eli's adoption fee is $250 and includes his microchip, current vaccinations (Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Bordatella), HW/Lyme test, and dental cleanings. He was neutered prior to coming into our care. To give Eli a forever home, please submit an application at PomPaws.org.
