Description: Pomeranian puppies also known as Poms, Pompoms, and Tumbleweeds, are a toy dog breed coming from the Spitz type of dog that is named for the Pomerania region in north-west Poland and north-east Germany in Central Europe.
Appearance: They are compact but sturdy dogs with an abundant textured coat with a highly plumed tail set high and flat. The top coat forms a ruff of fur on the neck, which Poms are well known for, and they also have a fringe of feathery hair on the hindquarters. Pomeranians have a thick, double coat.
Pomeranian comes in the widest variety of colors of any dog breed, including white, black, brown, red, orange, cream, blue, sable, black and tan, brown and tan, spotted, brindle, and combinations of those colors. The most common colors are orange, black, or cream/white.
The merle Pomeranian is a recent color developed by breeders. It is a combination of a solid base color with a lighter blue/grey patch which gives a mottled effect. The most common base colors for the effect are red/brown or black, although it can also appear with other colors.
Size: Pomeranians are small dogs weighing 3 to 7 pounds and standing 6 to 7 inches high.
Life Span: average 12-17 years
Temperament and Behavior: Pomeranians are intelligent, typically alert to their surroundings, like to protect their territory, require frequent attention, are friendly, lively, playful, and can be aggressive with other dogs and humans as they try to prove themselves. They will bark at new stimuli and can develop excessive barking habits. Pomeranians respond well to training, and can be very successful in getting what they want from their owners. They have an extroverted personality, but they can become dominant, willful and stubborn if not well trained and socialized. Toys can be an effective tool in training Pomeranians to spend time alone.
Care: While grooming is not difficult, breeders recommend that it be done daily to maintain the quality of the coat and because of its thickness and the constant shedding, with trimming every 1–2 months. The outer coat is long, straight, and harsh in texture while the undercoat is soft, thick and short. The coat knots and tangles easily, particularly when the undercoat is being shed, which happens twice a year.
The Pomeranian is a small but energetic breed of dog. Poms need relatively little exercise but it's recommended to take them on several daily walks and let them run around an enclosed space.
