MEET EVERETT….. who we think is a Maltese Pomeranian, 12.8 lbs, 3 yrs old and creamy white. For those of you looking for a hypoallergenic, non shedding dog, he might not be the one for you. While he doesn’t shed much, we don’t believe he is hypoallergenic. A good Samaritan pointed him out to us, and because he had shown fear at the shelter, they allowed us to adopt him.
Everett can act a bit dominant at first meeting, but he is very puppy-like when it comes to playing, nipping at your fingers and zooming around the house. He is not really behavioral, however, he is very protective on walks and pulls on the leash like he has somewhere to go, so he definitely needs training for this. He can be a bit leash aggressive and a brat at times, but part of that is because he is very sensitive. When he does something wrong and you admonish him, he will go and hide under the bed! It does takes time for him to trust and he will bark at visitors until properly introduced. For a little guy, he is quiet (except when alerting you to strange noises outside) and doesn’t show signs of separation anxiety, but in the car he does get nervous (and barks at strangers outside) if he isn’t being occupied. In his foster home, he is wonderful, loves to give kisses, cuddle and play with all his toys. He can also be independent when he feels like it. Everett would be best in a home with an active, patient family who can exercise him and get him out to see the world! He would also love another dog (of his choosing) to play and ZOOM with, one of his other favorite things to do. He needs a home where he will get lot of attention and a family that will help him fully blossom. A senior home would not be best for him.
Everett seems to be potty trained or will use a pp pad in a crunch, but he has had a few accidents in his foster home, so we never guarantee. He is protective on walks, as he should be! He needs a home that will work with his sensitivity and curiousity. Does Everett sound like a pup you could love to life? Training will be a must in his future.
