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.

I am in love with my dog ??is the most very playful is very tender and I have a year with her and it is the best Everyone at home we love her is part of our family now thanks premierpups :)
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.
My boyfriend and I purchased Bear in September of 2015 and he has been such a great pup. Premier pups gave us all the information we needed when Bear was a puppy on how to properly care for him, and they were super helpful when we had questions. Bear is going on three years old now and is playful, spunky, and cute as can be. I get compliments on how adorable he is everywhere we go. Thanks, Premier Pups!
Well Tigger is an awesome addition to our family! This is the second Pomeranian we have purchased from Mike and this company is awesome! Customer service is the best as Mike and staff answer the phone and are always concerned and willing to answer any questions. I highly recommend them. Thank you for providing great service~ we love our dogs~ Minnie and Tigger ????
This is Atlas (Domino) he just celebrated his 1st birthday 8/13. Today he’s full of energy loves to play tug-of-war, fetch and going on walks. On 10/19 we will have him for 1 year, when we got him he was 2lbs2oz today he is 15lbs of pure energy. Our family loves him very much and we home to return to Premier Pups in a few years and get a female Pomeranian(not to breed he is fixed and so will she) hopefully from the same breeders and the same parents if available.
Instantly fell in love when I saw his puppy photos. He arrived healthy and happy. He’s now over a year old and has more attitude then me, it’s never a dull moment with Falco around.
Phillis is my third pup from Premier, I tell everyone about this site because we get stopped multiple times a day so people can say hi to her. She's perfect and loves everyone. I've never had even the slightest problem with Premier, it's always a seamless, hassle-free experience and each dog has been one of the smartest, most beautiful and wonderful dogs I've ever known. I'll never buy a dog anywhere else.
We couldnt be happier with our little boy Odin! The staff at Premier Pups gave us everything We needed plus plenty of help via phone and email. Hes so smart and loveable and we will definitely be getting his brother or sister from these guys!
I bought snow in 2012 and he's the best dog ever! He's sweet and very loving! He loves to cuddle ?? I have'nt had any problems with him and I love him. If I ever want another dog I would definitely order from this site again! They are reliable and trustworthy! Thanks for a great dog!
Premier Pups has been excellent to work with. Before I purchased a puppy, they happily answered all my questions. I even had a phone conversation with them because I felt more secure purchasing a puppy from someone I had actually spoken to. In this conversation, I asked about the name of the vet who was treating their puppies. Then I contacted the vet and confirmed that Premier Pups was an ethnical, responsible, and loving breeder. Once I purchase the puppy, Premier Pups sent be a huge email with instructions. At first I was overwhelmed... wow... so much information. But I needed it all! As I experienced her being flown to me, picked up from the airport, and our first week together, I found myself going back to this detailed email several times. Almost every question I had was sitting right there. Premier Pups had made sure I knew how to handle every situation that might occur. Also, Premier Pups has texted me every couple of days checking on the puppy. This is so comforting. I have never had such a small puppy where I needed to worry about feeding her enough food to keep her sugar level. It was nice to know they were keeping up with how she was doing as she got adjusted to our home. A few times when I had a question, I would text them and always received a response. They were happy to take the time to answer my non-emergency questions, or to give me their opinion. Our family is in LOVE! Bambi has the best personality, and she is so smart! In the first week she has learned her name, already going to the door to go potty, she will dance for her treats. I have taken her to our vet for a check... they say she looks very healthy and happy. I 100% recommend Premier Pups!! They have made the experience of getting a new family puppy perfect! (Not to mention, their puppies are absolutely adorable!!)
