Birch is a young, high energy, Pomeranian/ Chihuahua mix. He recently went into foster care, where he has started working on his leash and potty training skills. Birch gets along great with other dogs, and will benefit from having another high energy, playful dog in his forever home. Birch is initially shy and takes time to trust the humans in his life, but once he gets to know someone, he enjoys attention from them. Because he is shy, Birch is considered a high flight risk and will need an experienced home with a fenced in yard to help keep him safe. While his favorite time is play time, a close second for Birch is treat time. Birch loves treats and is very food motivated. With time and patience, Birch will continue to blossom.

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
