The Pomeranian is a lively dog that will certainly keep you on your toes. Classified as a Toy breed, these dogs make excellent pets for families, couples, individuals and the elderly, as long they understand the needs of a dog of this size. They also excel at agility and obedience training.
The Pomeranian breed was named after Pomerania, an area in Northeastern Europe which is now part of Poland and Western Germany, where the breed originated from. The Pomeranian was bred from it’s Spitz breed ancestors, including the Norwegian Elkhound, the Schipperke, the German Spitz, the American Eskimo Dog and the Samoyed.

Pomeranians are often known for mimicking the temperaments of their owners. If you are confident and outgoing, your Pomeranian will be too, but if you are more relaxed and quiet, your Pomeranian might be a gentler dog. Whatever temperament they take, these dogs love their owners and want to be by your side all the time!
Generally, Pomeranian’s are very out-going dogs that want to meet lots of new people. They often think they are larger than they really are, which can sometimes get them into trouble when meeting with bigger dogs. They can be very bossy and try to assert their dominance over both you and other pups, although this can be trained out of them.
These little dogs certainly feel it is their duty to protect your and will have no problem in becoming vocal when they feel something is out of place. This is something to keep in mind, especially if you live in an apartment and have neighbors close by. You will need to ensure you socialize them properly with strangers, unless you want them to be an aggressive guard dog or watchdog! Our Pomeranian puppies for sale are all bred in family settings to ensure early socialization.

The Pomeranian is very recognizable pup. They have been described as quite fox like in their appearance — they have dark eyes and small, erect ears. Their tail is high and they have a sturdy build. Their fur forms a ruff around their neck which can make them look a bit like a lion, too!
A Pomeranian usually weighs between 3-7 pounds in weight and stands between 6-7 inches tall. Their fur is thick, however, so it can make them look bigger.
The Pomeranian has a thick coat with straight furs that make them look very fluffy. In reality, these furs are quite hard to touch.
The coat is a double coat with a thick, long outer coat and a soft undercoat. They do not shed very much, but you may still want to invest in a good vacuum cleaner for when they do. They are not considered hypoallergenic so are not the pet for those with allergies. We will go into more detail about grooming later on.
