They were also bred as Nanny dogs to families and assisted in the wars in a positive way.
pomeranians are pretty small, they are fluffballs though
We have a bitza (pomeranian x tenterfield terrier). Has longer legs so doesn't suffer any of the issues some smaller dogs do with hips etc.
So look into a mini foxie or a small breed tenterfield terrier (they have shorter legs) They look a bit like jack russells, but from what I can tell & have seen, they bark a hell of a lot less.
one day my dream will come true.....
all domestic animals (dogs, cats etc.) will be either bred to breed regulations (and registered as such) or available from shelters.
no pet shops, backyard breeders, everything legitimate.
i have nothing against pure breds and those people who breed for the right reasons should be compensated for the time and money that goes into it.
but compulsory sterilisation PRIOR to sale and registration with local councils should be mandatory.
not just for the abandoned animals but for our wildlife.
Yes it's true, the Teacup Chihuahuas are just the stunted, runty chihuahuas from the litter. Chihuahuas are really the littlest technically, but there are some really REALLY small mini foxies out there. I saw a 2yo one once (and the guy, insanely had it on a leash walking down Fitzroy street where I was worried people would step on it accidentally) that was the size of a small rat. It was 4inches high. I literally couldn't believe my eyes.
Chihuahuas make great pets if you treat them like a dog and not a baby, and walk and socialise them a lot.
I think there needs to be regulations on breeders and they need to prove they are breeding ethically.
