Come back on Friday for our upcoming featured adoptable pet Bandit! When you all see him, you’ll be calling up North Shore for him quickly!

Meet Mississippi, the first adoptable pet we are showcasing through our teaming up with North Shore Animal League America to promote pet adoptions.

Mississippi is an adorable six-year-old dark-haired Pomeranian, who was rescued from a Midwestern puppy mill. Puppy mills are facilities in which puppies are bred against their will and are forced to endure inhumane conditions, in order to make a profit. Luckily, Animal League America was able to save Mississippi from the horrific environment at the mill. However, she is now in need of a warm and loving environment in which she can call home.

Although she can be nervous at first, she quickly warms up to people and is an incredibly friendly and loving dog.

Pomeranians, sometimes known as Poms for short, are named after Pomerania, which is a region in Central Europe. They are classified as a “toy dog breed,” as they are relatively small, weighing from 4.2-7.7lbs and standing at about 5.0-11 inches. They are compact animals with textured, fluffy coats. Dog specialists recommend that owners of Pomeranians trim their dog’s fur every 1-2 months, as it is quite thick.

Pomeranians are known for being very friendly and playful dogs. In addition, they can also be fairly protective over their owners, as they develop a strong bond with them.

The small breed generally responds well to training, and shows high competency when it comes to learning tricks and etiquette (i.e. sit, stay, etc.)

This particular breed of dog can live up to 16 years when kept on a good diet and regularly exercised. Specialists encourage owners to provide dry food for their Poms, as this can help prevent early tooth loss.

An interesting fact about Mississippi’s breed is that Queen Victoria actually had a Pomeranian named “Windor’s Marco” in 1981. Since her dog was a relatively small Pom, it was reported that the size of the particular breed decreased by 50%, as people sought a similar looking dog to the Queen. More recently in 2012 and 2013, the Pomeranian was ranked as #19 on the list of most popular breeds in the United States.

Mississippi loves cuddling and snuggling up on your lap; Thus, making her a perfect companion on movie night or when relaxing with a book.

She gets along really well with other dogs and would be perfect for a home with children aged 12 and up.

If given a loving home, Mississippi will no doubt be able to provide unconditional love, joy and a bond with her new family that will last a lifetime.
