Named after the region of Pomerania in Germany, also commonly known as the Pom or Pom Pom was first recognized as a descendent of the Wolfspitz breed. They originally were larger and were used as sheep herders. It became a popular breed in England in the 1800 year, when Queen Victoria adopted one. Its size has reduced and the fur grew more, it became a small puppy with a smiling foxy look, a real toy dog. This puppy was first recognized by the AKC in 1888 and it was perceived as a watchdog, with agility and performing tricks. It has since become one of the most sought after breeds here in the United States.
Appearance and Grooming
They are small, toy-sized dog with wedge-shaped head, almond-shaped dark eyes and tiny and raised ears, sharp pot and long tail carried on the back. The short muzzle is straight and fine. The color of the nose varies with coat color. The coat is longer around the neck and chest area. It can have a variety of coat colors and patterns including red, orange, white, cream, blue, brown, black, black and tan, wolf sable, brindle and white with different colors. With a cottony undercoat regular daily brushing is important to minimize the amount of shedding and tangles.
This is a very intelligent dog that has an eagerness to learn and shows strong loyalty to its owner and family. It has a docile and affectionate temperament and yet will be playful and energetic when enticed. It shows off its bravery often with strangers, as it will bark at them excessively.
Family and Companionship
They are highly extroverted dogs and love being in the midst of new people and try to make friends with everyone they meet. They do extremely well with children and other pets as they are highly sociable animals. They are also very protective of their owners and they respond very well to training and mental exercises. Due to their size, they prefer being inside than outside. They are well-suited for a large home or apartment life and crave human companionship more than anything else.
Routine exercise is necessary for the health and wellness of these high energy level pooches. Daily walks and frequent play will keep you puppy occupied and fit. Don’t be afraid of long walks with this one as their strong levels of endurance can carry them up to 5 miles and sometimes even more.
Training and Socialization
Known to become aggressive if not properly trained, these dogs need a firm yet gentle trainer. Though quick learners who are good at learning tricks, primary focus should be on obedience and barking as these tiny pups tend to see themselves as the boss and become incessant barkers. Socialization is equally as important as their extroverted and inquisitive nature must be met in effort to keep your pup happy and well mannered.

Three years ago we got a teacup Pomeranian from Premier Pups and recently decided to give her a sister. We chose to go through Premier again because our first puppy Meadow has had the sweetest and best personality since the day we took her out of her crate at the airport. On November 5th we picked up Dana, now Amaluna or Luna for short, and we weren’t disappointed. She’s polar opposite of her new sister Meadow, but still so sweet. Her and Meadow are slowly getting to know each other. Meadow is very upset with us, but with extra loves I think eventually she’ll be happy we added a friend for her. You can tell that these puppies are well cared for before you get them. I’d definitely recommend using them 10/10 times.
I recently pocked up my puppy from Premier Pups and I give all props to premier pups!I have been scammed two times before from fake pom sellers and i was not really expecting any puppy but another disappointment but even while having my adorable little pom in my hands its still unbelievable .The shipping is awesome and the service is optimal .the same day of purchase i received a call still not convinced .However the premier pup customer service reps kept me updated almost daily on everything i would need.Very real and reliable.Thank you premier pups
I just wanted to let you know how Lolo is doing. She is a a ball of joy . She helps me so much with companion ship i spend a lot of time in doors due to my health she is a true blessing. I Love her with all my heart and I just wanted to Thank You once again for letting me adopt my little angel.???
This review is overdue, but I got Niko about 2 years ago. He’s a mischievous little guy and I love him to bits. I still remember the day I picked him up from the airport, it didn’t take long for him to open up to me and my family. He’s a little flirt and steals everyone’s heart on the first meeting. Super friendly to all ages and just wants to give everyone kisses. His size did surprise me, he is 20 lb, and I’m not talking about overweight, he’s a big Pomeranian (throwback Pomeranian maybe? You won’t know it until your dog has turned one), but I wouldn’t have him any other way. Premier Pups delivered excellent and genuine care to Niko and I. They made sure Niko was flown safely to me, and followed up several times over the course of the next few weeks of getting him to make sure we were doing well. I have certainly recommended my friends when they’ve been looking to add a small fur baby to their family and will continue to do so in the future.
So happy Premier pups and Wags made my dream come true.I just love my little boy.Thank all of you at Premier pups and Wags financing.Mark Smith
I adopted Mosa (formerly Winslet) last month! I was so nervous to purchase a pup online and have been wanting a Pomeranian for so many years now. She’s amazing and we are so in love! Premier Pups was so helpful and there for you every step of the way. Truly made the transition as seamless as possible!! Highly recommend.
We got Sasha right before my school started in the summer, and was skeptical of getting a "micro teacup" pom, but she's so healthy, people still think she's a puppy and she's 1 years old! We get compliments on her literally everywhere we go! I'm so happy we got her from here, I would definately reccommend this place!
Got this 2 lovely puppies last year and now they are total 5 members including 3 new puppies from them. Love it. Thank you premierpups
When I first saw Mimi (formerly known as Kali) on the Premier Pups website, I knew that I needed her in my life. Premier Pups was so helpful in answering all of my questions, both before and after adopting her. They were always very kind, helpful, and professional. Mimi is such an adorable ball of energy, and after being with her for almost 3 weeks now, she has made me so incredibly happy. Thank you so much to Premier Pups for making me the happiest dog mommy.
I bought my puppy pomerainian last year, I think he arrived about 3-4 days later, when I first met my little buddy, he was the smallest little creature I've ever seen filled with so much energy. I followed the instructions that Premierpups gave me, and long story short, thanks to this site, I'm the happiest guy ever. About one or two weeks in, I finally gave my puppy a name, Tommy. I celebrated his first birthday, with a party, and he will also be 1 year since I got him in two weeks. His my baby, my everything, he has brought me happiness in my life as you cannot imagine. If you decide to buy a pomerianian, things you should know about them, they are not for kids, because the dog may get hurt, and poms are so obbessed with thier owners, I do not mine that part but its something you should know. They will love you no matter what, remember dogs are a big responsibility and not a toy. After 6months he stopped growing, so yes they stay small, he is 1year and a month old, with 5lbs. And yes they are adorable! Here's a recent photo of him, with his little dirty paws, he loves the garden.
