How Do I Rehome My Pomeranian?
You can rehome your Pomeranian by offering her to someone you know or finding someone to adopt. Of course, before you find an owner, you need to be sure you understand what your dog needs from a new home.
What Does Your Pomeranian Need?
One of the first things that you need to think about when you're going to rehome your dog is what she needs from a new owner. This includes more than just love and a warm place to stay, of course. All dogs are different. What is it that makes your Pomeranian different? Does she have a predilection for chasing cats or larger dogs? Does she have any health issues?
Before you can choose a new owner for your dog, you need to know and understand what that owner needs to be capable of providing. Do they have the time and capability to ensure she gets enough exercise? Can they afford to feed her well and take her to the vet when needed? Can they provide everything that she needs to have a happy and healthy life? Only when you can answer these questions to your satisfaction will you have found an ideal place to rehome your Pomeranian.
Rehoming with a Friend or Relative
One of the best options for rehoming is to speak with people you know. Maybe they or someone in their circle would like to adopt your Pomeranian. Rehoming your dog with someone you already know is a great choice since you'll have a much better idea of whether they're a good choice or not. It also tends to be a fast way to rehome, which can be helpful for those who are running out of time and who don't want to bring their dog to a shelter.
Of course, you'll also be able to rehome using online services. Pet adoption sites like Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com can be a wonderful option. Through Rehome, you can create a profile for your dog complete with pictures, videos, and a bio. The bio is where you'll put all of the pertinent information about your dog including any health or temperamental issues they might have. You want to be honest in the bio, so the prospective adopters have a good idea of whether she's a good option for their family.
Is Rehoming the Same as Surrendering?
Surrendering your dog to a shelter or a rescue is different from rehoming her. When you surrender, you're giving up your legal rights to your dog to the facility. You don't have any control over who adopts them, and there's a chance they won't be adopted at all. Even though the shelter and rescue try to ensure that the dogs under their care are adopted, it's not always possible.
Charging Rehoming Fees
If you're going to be rehoming your dog with someone you don't know, it's important to charge a rehoming fee. These fees help to reduce risks for your Pomeranian. People who have ill intentions toward pets, such as selling them to labs, don't want to pay for the animals they get.
