Mufasa - the Lion King. We named him that because he walked in so proud and tall. And so damaged. Very slowly, Mufasa began to trust.

He is not a poodle. He is a Pomeranian and that is a breed that has their own unique characteristics. He's a toy, but you can't treat poms like toys or they will turn into the unhappy little pup that made his way to us in May of 2012. Untrusting, unlovable, unreachable. He needed time. We gave it to him.

Now Mufasa is almost back to the happy, confident dog that Pomeranians were made to be. He needs a bit more to get there -- specifically, a quiet home that will cherish him. He also needs someone who will be very gentle with him. His back easily gets a slipped disc which, as you might guess, is quite painful. He is currently on a long term run of robaxin to relax him. He can't handle life on our concrete floors. He needs to be handled by someone with experience in his breed, in a home where people and other animals won't bump him. In spite of this, he is good in a car, does well on a leash, and behaves beautifully in a crate. 

Mufasa needs

somewhere to retire and a companion or companions who will appreciate the quiet life. He'd be a great little guy to greet you at the end of the day and snuggle up on the sofa while you read or watch t.v. He is in complete heart failure and on daily meds.
