Seattle pet shop owner Peter Baker is searching for a pomeranian to help him with his Craigslist seattle pet search.
The pomeranese, named Pet Sounds, is a breed that is considered a mix between the American Staffordshire terrier and a cross between the Belgian Malinois and the German Shetland Sheepdog.
Baker is looking for one to help carry his trailer and to make noise at night to alert him when it is time to pick up the trailer.
Baker’s search for a companion pet began last week after he was denied a poodle.
The owner, who did not want his name published, was told that dogs like the poodle were not allowed in the city because of a “misdemeanor breed law.”
Pomeranians are a cross of the American shepherd dog and the American poodle, and they are found throughout Seattle and Puget Sound, but they are not known for their behavior.
“They can be very loud,” Baker said of the dogs, adding that he had seen the dogs at the city dump for two weeks.
“I think I’m the only person that can find one that doesn’t bite, that doesn, like, have that kind of loud bark.”
Posing for photos with his pomeraniac, Baker said he was excited to find a dog that would help him get the trailer running again.
“If I had to do it again, I’d probably do it by myself,” Baker added.
“It’s been two weeks since I got the trailer, and I’m really starting to think about that, and then you have the possibility that I can find another poodle.”
Baker hopes to find one within the next week.
