Salem is a 10 week old female Pomsky who comes to NCCR from a puppy mill. Here is some general info on Pomskies.
The pomsky dog is not a true breed but, rather, a cross between the Siberian husky and the Pomeranian. Some traits include intelligence, playfulness, confidence and an affectionate and loving nature. Both breeds also tend to be on the noisy side, with huskies being talkative and Pomeranians being prone to yipping. As a result, pomskies are typically vocal dogs who aren’t a good fit for someone with a low tolerance for noise, or for an apartment with thin walls and easily annoyed neighbors.Pomskies also tend to be protective, which can increase their tendency to bark, especially around strangers. They do, however, make excellent watchdogs. They have a fiercely loyal streak, which means they may latch onto one member of the household as their primary person, although they generally tend to get along well with everyone. They can be skittish around small children, though, and may not be a good fit for families with very young kids.
Another trait that first-time owners aren’t often prepared for is that they can be quite willful and stubborn, making them difficult to train in spite of their high intelligence. They require calm and assertive leadership and a whole lot of patience. Because of this, pomskies aren’t a good fit for inexperienced dog owners, who may feel overwhelmed by and frustrated with the breed’s strong personality.

If you think you might Salem is the dog for you, your first step should be to complete an Adoption Application. After you have completed your application, you will immediately get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you. If you have a question, please email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day. Completing an application does not commit you to adopt, but please be sure that you are serious about adopting and have the time and patience to raise a puppy before you apply.
We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs. Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.
*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application. Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.
