Kiki is an 11 month old, female, lovely, fox-red Pomeranian with a classic powder puff coat who weighs about 7lbs.
Here is her rescue story:
“Kiki came to Florida Little Dog Rescue at 7 months old with a broken leg when her previous owner decided EUTHANIZING her would be a more convenient choice than dealing with surgery and a tedious convalescence. Fortunately the vet said heck no to that, so this darling girl came to us. She has been a great sport over nearly three long months of surgery with pins and a plate to repair the leg and then enforced crate confinement to protect her during the healing process. Despite everything, Kiki remained her happy, nice and very energetic puppy self throughout.
Her foster mom says: Kiki is ready to resume her life as an adorable and adored member of a family as she completes the final and manageable stage of her recovery and moves back into the mainstream. Her leg is healed but should still be considered somewhat fragile. Full robustness may take a few more months. At this point she is able to walk on a harness and leash for prescribed distances, have some supervised freedom in a safe smallish room, and enjoy some fresh air in a small outdoor space (an ex-pen in the yard). Her new owner will need to enforce this.”
So if you are looking for a diva/Kim Kardashian of dogs with all the envy and attention great beauty brings contact us and get ready to have your life taken over by Kiki!
She is happy, loving, active, energetic, mischievous, funny, bossy, entitled, way too smart and so darn cute. This little girl loves people and is dog and also cat social – to the dismay of the cat. She loves treats, squeaky toys, balls, playing in the water bowl and pulling her older sedate Pommie friend backwards by the tail. She likes spending time outside in her enclosure and will collect mulch, attempt some digging, and likes to monitor invading lizards and squirrels. She has a calm, sweet princess side and naps or sleeps peacefully on your lap or somewhere nearby, rides in a purse/carrier, follows you around, bestows kisses upon the deserving, and is totally affectionate.
Kiki is a luxuriously coated Pom and will need regular professional grooming along with frequent comb-outs at home.
Please do not apply unless you want to spend time with, resources on, and have a highly interactive relationship with your dog. Kiki must have a special and careful home with someone who is there more often than not, wants to give her the attention required and will enjoy providing a proper environment for her. Her broken leg seems to have been accidental, probably from her leaping off of something high, so her new owner must protect her from this and see that her surroundings don’t pose any danger. She is too energetic and daring for her own good when left to her own devices or when bored, so she needs safe ways to expend some physical and mental energy with you through walks, outings, supervised play or maybe a job as a visiting celebrity. Kiki can be barky when confined or alone, so no shared walls are best. She is not fully potty-trained at the moment, as this has been hard while on crate rest, but she is learning and does not like soiling her crate. She will bark to get out of it to use a nearby pee pad and she will take advantage of outdoor opportunities. I think she was perhaps housetrained before her injury and will soon get the hang of it again.
Kiki would love a dog friend her own size, but any interactions must be carefully monitored for some time to come.
Absolutely no small children in the home or frequently visiting, and no larger dogs, no exceptions, no matter how nice. She is too small for either to be safe for her and her bionic leg. Thank you for understanding.
Fostering this girl has been be a privilege. If you think Kiki is just what your life needs, she is here waiting, rather impatiently, for her new people:)
Kiki is spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.”
