Last Updated: March 22nd, 2023

Date of Arrival: July 1, 2022

Age: Approx 9.5 years

Breed: Pomeranian

Size: 15lbs

Gender: Male

Adoption Status: We are accepting applications for Hopper

Personality: This little man is about as sweet as any dog can be! He absolutely loves his fosters and seeks them out. He is smart too, and can find his humans almost anywhere. This is particularly remarkable as Hopper is nearly blind - he can only see slight shadows in very bright light.

Hopper loves to be babied and relies on his humans to snuggle him, be with him and keep him safe. Despite his limited vision, he does not startle when he is touched.

Hopper loves cozy dog beds, but doesn't sleep on the human bed. His lack of vision makes it hard to see the edge of a bed and there is a risk he could fall off; floor-level dog beds are best .

House training/Pee Pad Training: Hopper is NOT housetrained yet and does mark.

Walks/leash training: Hopper is not a dog suited to going on leash walks. He loves wandering in a secure yard and we think he would enjoy stroller rides or to be carried in a snuggle sack on walks.

Children: Hopper does okay with older, dog-savvy kids who do not roughhouse with him.

Dogs, Cats and Other Friends: Hopper would do well in a home with one other dog, ideally a docile female. He has had no reaction to the resident cat. Hopper does not do well with dogs that are more assertive/dominant.

Best Home Environment: Hopper's ideal yard would be fully fenced so he can explore safely; he loves wandering around and sniffing things, as long as his humans are nearby! His family will also need to use baby gates to prevent him from falling down any stairs.

Health: Hopper is nearly blind. He also tested positive for heartworm and has been undergoing treatment for the last several months. Hopper is now on monthly heartworm prevention until August. He will soon be ready for his neuter surgery and then his forever home. In August, his adopter will need to bring him to our vet for a heartworm retest. His last test was negative for microfilaria, which is awesome(!!), but follow-up testing is a requirement. Hopper's retest and the heartworm prevention meds until the retest will be covered by Cupcakes Rescue. In addition, if there is further active treatment required in August, it will be covered by the Rescue when completed at our veterinary clinic of choice, Central Veterinary Services, only.

History: Hopper is a Manitoba breeder surrender. We are grateful that we have been entrusted with his care.

Adoption Fee: Hoppers fee for adoption is $350
