The Dogs of Hoboken: Gizmo {The Pomeranian}

Written by:

At six pounds and six ounces, he’s our tiniest Dog of Hoboken yet. But what he lacks in size he makes up for  — with personality and charm. Oh, and he never has a bad hair day, if you couldn’t tell. Introducing Gizmo the Pomeranian! This tiny Hobokenite and Shipyard resident surely has a style & swagger all his own.

“Gizmo has a very big personality.” laughs Gizmo’s dad Jason. “Although only 6 lbs, he wants to be the center of attention and begs to be picked up and held all the time. He is always happy and enjoys the company of other dogs (even very large ones). However, he loves people even more.”

^Baby Gizmo. Such a little baby Pom puppy!

“We looked around a various breeds of dogs, and chose Gizmo because he was so cute (only 11 ounces when we got him). We also liked the fact that his breed does not shed. Gizmo likes the outdoors but only in small doses. He’s totally a homebody. Everyone always compliments him on his amazing hair. I think we all wish we had hair like Gizmo. Haha!”
