Neuter and shots. Dog was adopted. He came in as a stray. “Malone is a very sweet 5-year-old, 8-lb. pom who might have a little long-haired Chihuahua somewhere in the bloodline. He is very calm and friendly. Likes to sit in a lap, go for a walk or just chill. He gets along with other dogs and has no problem with cats. Would do well with children but no small kids. He is too small and easily injured by dropping or stepping on him.”

Bandito came to us from a shelter. He had been picked up as a stray. He had heartworms and was having seizures. He was treated for the heartworms and had blood work done. After the heartworm treatment, the seizures subsided and, with minimal medication, he is living a normal life in his adopted home in Austin, Texas.

These Poms came to us with heartworm disease and the grant enabled us to get them the treatment they needed. They have since recovered and been adopted. Starlit (first photo) is 6 years old and 7 lbs. She was left in an abandoned home to starve and when she arrived here she was just 5 lbs, just a skeleton. She holds no grudges and is a very loving affectionate girl. She tested a very low positive for heartworms but because of her small size, it was decided it was best to do the slow kill with Heartgard. We expect she will test negative in less than a year.

Tesla (second photo) is 5-6 years old and weighs 8 lbs. She was a stray at the Garland shelter. A super sweet little girl with lots of personality, she would make a great lap dog or walking partner. Her favorite activities include sleeping, eating, getting some love and going for walks.

Almond was rescued from a shelter. He was in such bad shape, we weren’t sure he was a pom. It has taken a few months, but he is now neutered, current on shots, free of heartworms and microchipped and ready to find a new home. The photos are the before-and-after pictures of Recycled Poms’ Almond and his wonderful transformation.
