“I started googling Pomsky’s for sale everywhere.

I looked up the personality for both Pomeranian and Husky and their descriptions matched what we were looking for.

They are very smart, active, physically appealing and social with other animals, including cats (which we do have).

We had limited options because they are relatively a new mix of breeds.

There were breeders in NY.”

“My husband is a great dad.

We have both managed our work and time so that we can take care of Mabel.

I work at an office, but my husband can work remotely part of the time.

He gets to take care of her during the day, and I know it’s not easy to take his mind off work.

He is very focused on his job, and the only thing that can break that concentration is Mabel.

Mabel gives us both a break from work,  and focusing on ourselves and our careers.

We are both driven people and society encourages that way of being.

Having Mabel has inspired us to slow down and appreciate the moments of day to day life, and live in the present tense.”

“We worry about Mabel and try to make her happy as a team.

She gets really excited when my wife and I kiss each other.

She runs over to us with great joy, so sometimes we kiss just to call Mabel over to us.

She wants to be a part of us coming together.

It’s a beautiful thing.

It’s funny and amazing.”

“Dogs that are not adopted in Korea are either euthanized or used for the meat trade.

We went to either three or four dog adoption events over a period of four months, and then my wife saw Mabel.

We applied for her to adopt her and took Mabel home that day.

They knew us because we kept coming back to their events.”
