More About Kumo – on hold

We would like to introduce you to a very special little bundle of fluff, Kumo. Kumo, meaning cloud in Japanese,  is a spritely older Pomeranian x gentleman at eight years old, Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at him.

Kumo is an absolute bundle of energy when he feels like it (especially when playing with his squeaky toys or tennis ball), and being older sometimes forgets the limits of his energy. While he is fine with kids, we think he might be best at a home where he can get some rest, as when he has been go-go-go he has been known to overdo himself.

When he is relaxed, Kumo is content to chill on your lap, or in one of his many beds and blankets littered around our apartment. He has taken well to his crate, and sleeps well overnight.

In terms of upkeep, Kumo is content with one or two short-medium walks, and has been happy to be inside our apartment during the day, and can keep himself entertained. Fair warning though, he needs a good brush once a week, otherwise his coat can move from fluffy cloud to tangled vine.

While Kumo is toilet trained,  he is very much A BOY, and likes to use his “amber ale” to mark what (he thinks) is his. In the first few days we noticed him marking inside as well as outside, but the inside stopped after a few days with us so this is likely an adjustment thing. Just something to keep mindful of if you are visiting your friend who just got that nice cream carpet installed.

Kumo is fine with other dogs, and has taken kindly to visits with my friend’s husky, although he can be a little put off by large, forward dogs. His previous owner has also stated he is good with cats, though we haven’t tested this.

Kumo has been known to occasionally “do the dash” when presented with the chance. If you are in an apartment or fenced yard, this is no problem, but if your front door opens onto a main arterial, he might not be suitable. He has also tripped us up a few times by getting in the way of legs, thus we don’t think he would be a good fit for anyone with mobility issues, as his previous owner was having trouble to look after him because of this.


Thank you for considering an ARF dog. Most dogs receive several enquiries, and we aim to match the right dog to the right home so that they can enjoy a happy life together. If your enquiry is successful, rest assured that the foster carer has carefully based their decision on a thorough knowledge and understanding of the dog’s needs.
