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.

Fabulous experience adopting a Pomeranian puppy from Premiere Pups! I am absolutely in love with our little guy Dexter. His original name at premier Pups was Bento but, we changed it to Dexter. It just seemed to suit him, as he is very smart & quick. We just adopted him on May 8th & he is 8 weeks old. I can't say enough good things about this company. Everything went smoothly from start to end at Premiere Pups. I dealt with several people at the company, all who were very nice & helpful. I found out the people they hire, all are pet owners & animal lovers & it really shows. Everyone you will deal with goes above & beyond to make your experience comfortable & perfect. I want to thank Lacie & Angie especially. These lades are so sweet & thorough, they are exceptional. I spoke to & texted with Lacie numerous times, from the moment I left a deposit, to the day our puppy was personally delivered to us at the Daytona Beach airport. She kept in touch with me every step of the way & made sure things went smoothly. A true professional & caring young lady, who is also an animal lover herself. We paid a bit extra to have a nanny carry him in the plane & deliver him to us. I thought the extra money was worth it, because I did not want to have an 8 week old puppy sitting in a cargo plane compartment all alone for hours, so I paid to have the nanny Angie bring him on the plane. She was able to give him some food, water & comfort him on the place, which I thought was the right thing to do. Angie was wonderful & the perfect puppy nanny. She kept in touch with me & sent me pictures & videos at the airport. She was the sweetest lady & a true pleasure to deal with. A big thank you to Angie for delivering him at night & for enduring such a long day of travel. I highly recommend Premier Puppies. They are a top notch 5 star company, offer impeccable service & deliver a precious puppy. Sincerely, Danielle in Ormond Beach
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!
We came and picked up "China" - a teacup Pomeranian just over three years ago. She was just a little puffball at the time, and coming into a home with a trained 110 pound lab/shepherd. We wanted a small dog, to be part of our family. She was well socialized and taken care of before we picked her up, as she was a happy puppy! She accepted us quickly, and has always been healthy. China is super intelligent too, and feels she is the same size as our large dog, and acts like he does- ( a guard dog). I feel that they treat their dogs well, and would get another from them in the future. :)
This is our first puppy. We were looking for so long and finally found this website. I am so thankful for the great service before and after purchase! Highly recommend!!
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
His name was originally Dax, we renamed him Luden! He was from a smaller sized litter so he is pretty tiny and adorable. Premier handled everything pretty well and I would totally recommend getting a puppy through them, HOWEVER, I do not recommend financing. The financial group that you get the loan from is awful and rude. I would research their financial group before making that decision. If you have the money up front to buy the puppy then this website is very easy to use and the staff are really pleasant to work with!
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.
My Wife always wanted a small breed puppy but the selection around Arizona was limited or the price was ridiculously expensive. A Pomeranian or a Yorkshire Terrier in the Arrowhead Mall Pet Shop was $5K or more! So we decided to research online for a reputable site and Premier Pups climbed to the top of our list. There is nothing ambiguous about their standard of procedure or policies. Everything we needed to know is on the website or sent to us via email or answered directly by their excellent customer service team. Our Teacup Pomeranian came with all of his medical papers needed for the vet, short term medication, and some baby food to help supplement his diet. Thank you to all the staff of Premier Pups. Thank you to the wonderful breeders. Thank you to everyone for blessing us with our little angel(sometimes angel). You can 100% trust this site for all of your puppy needs. May your journey start with Premier Pups and end with a little blessing of your own.
We love our little pup, she can’t be more adorable, this company stands behind every pup they sell. Any questions or concerns are answered quickly and also resolved quickly. They are a stand up company, and I would not hesitate to refer my friends and family to them. Dale Phillips
