Give this boy a squeaky toy and he's good to go!!! LINUS is an estimated 8.5 year old, 9 pound Pomeranian who was found as a very matted and underweight stray in Mississippi and taken to a shelter where he was later pulled to safety. LINUS is a nut! He is a sweet boy who will give you LOTS of kisses after running around like a silly boy. Sometimes he grumbles when you go to pick him up, but he doesn't do anything beyond that. We think it's a blend of stranger danger and possible hearing loss. His foster mom makes sure she picks him up when he is facing her so he's not surprised, plus he can give more kisses that way! Linus is happy, happy, and bounces and jumps and his tail is always wagging. He loves to chase a toy, but he's not so good at catching it! He also loves to be in the yard running and playing chase with the other dogs. At first we thought Linus needed to be in a home as an only dog but as he has settled into his foster home he has adapted very well to the other dogs. The only thing is that he should not go to a home with a dog who is an alpha or much bigger than he is. Linus adores his person and will be the most loyal little companion. At night he will sleep in the bed with his people or in a doggy bed if preferred. Linus has been to the vet for a wellness check, is up to date on shots, neutered, has had a dental, is heartworm negative, has had a 12 month ProHeart heartworm prevention shot and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. MORE about LINUS: No kids, no alpha dogs, not cat tested. Working on potty training. Needs a fenced yard due to hearing loss and stray history. Loves toys!
