“Dima (the Pomsky) always looks like he’s smiling and it makes me want to grin too.

Anubis (the Chion) loves everybody and was excited to make a new friend when we brought Dima home.

Dima takes time to warm up to people and it took him time to get used to living with Anubis.

Now, they love each other and he even lets Anubis in his crate.

He knows Anubis always wants to be near someone.

They are best friends.”

“The litter was running around in open farmland and playing with one another.

I met them and spotted him immediately, because he was the only one with different colored eyes.

I got to pick him up, and I loved him right away.

He was less fluffy and looked more wild.

I didn’t see the Pomeranian in him, but I didn’t care.”

“I looked at the same place in the Amish Country, where we got Anubis, Greenfield Puppies, because it is not a puppy mill and their dogs turn out well.

Dima is what’s called a Pomsky; a Pomeranian Husky mix.

When I saw him, he stood out to me.

He looked like he was smiling in the photograph, and he has one blue eye and one brown eye.

When I when to Greenfield Puppies, it was just the way I hoped it would be.”

“Two veterinarians said he is a Papillon Chihuahua mix (Chion), and it’s pretty obvious.

He has Chihuahua eyes.

After having Anubis for six months, I decided to get another dog.

I wanted a Husky since I was little but living in a NYC apartment, we thought a smaller version would be better in our space.

I started looking at Husky mixes.”

“Anubis came first.

My girlfriend was a cat person who didn’t really like dogs, but I convinced her to get a dog.

She decided to get a small dog.

She met a Papillon that she liked and decided this was the dog for her.

After researching online, she found a breeder in the Amish Country that she liked, with favorable reviews.

We found out that he was a mix because his fur kept growing but he didn’t.”

“Jack has taught me a lot about taking care of another being.

On stressful days, he’s what I look forward to when coming home.

A partner has to love him, in addition to loving me.

He’s part of the  package.”

“He loves to hike, camp, and swim.

We moved back to the city after a year and he seemed to bounce right back.

He adjusts well wherever he is.

Having Jack has made me more open to talking to strangers and making connections.

I keep in touch with friends I made in Colorado and it’s been two years since we left.”

“Jack was three to four months old when I got him.

It was an impulse decision, but it worked out because I lost my job a week after getting him home, so I got to spend quality time training him and helping him adjust to the city.

A month after he came to New York City, we moved to Colorado for a job.

He loved the mountains.”

“I found his picture through a rescue group in Tennessee called Moonshine Dog Rescue.

If you committed to buying one of their dogs, they promised transporting the dog up east.

Once I committed to adopting Jack, another rescue group called Alpha dog Transport brought him from the scout, it a tractor trailer full of dogs from different rescue groups to a designated are off route 80 in New Jersey.”

“I just really wanted to take care of a living creature, and I also wanted a sidekick.

I was just coming out of a breakup and I went on Petfinder to find a rescue dog.

I typed in Shepherd mix; male or female.

I knew I wanted a medium size dog, I didn’t care about the breed or sex.”
