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.

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 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. :)
We purchased a Pomeranian last month. He’s name on the site is Ezra but we changed it to Toby. He is such a sweet, smart puppy. Thank you so much premierpups Toby changes pur lives. He makes us happy!
Sake says hello. She's 18 months now. Sake is an absolute bundle of love. She's healthy, loving, and super smart. We couldn't be happier. When we took her for her initial vet check-up the vet was very impressed with her puppy records and puppy preventatives that were provided when she arrived. Her dad is 6'6 and she's about the size of his foot. Sake goes EVERYWHERE with us and is always the center of attention. What a great temperament on her. Off-leash trained since 8 mos old. She will be going for her Certification for her Therapy Dog License. We are definitely going to be looking for a new addition for our family with Premier Pups. Thank you.
In February we picked our Maltipoo up from Premier Pups and fell in love with him and our experience. So a week or two later we got him a playmate from PPs as well. His name is Rigby (aka Bradley) and our dogs have been BFFs since they met. We love them so much and my boys are asking for another... not right now, but if we do get another dog in the future, it will be from Premier Pups. Thanks 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!
Phoenix, formerly named Chai has been an absolute joy! She was a very shy pup still is but that’s okay. We just continued to love hr and make sure she had everything she needed and she warmed up to us! She enjoys being outside as you can see, so every morning I open the patio door so she can look out there while I work before taking her out. She is the perfect puppy for me and glad I have her in my family now ?? Premier pups was great and supportive I think everyone should buy from them!
Thank you very much everyone at Premier pups for bringing this little baby to us thank you very much.
Premierpups provided excellent air transport and starter kit for us to get off to a good start with Bora. We followed the instructions well and in no time Bora was adapting very well. Bora is everything you see when Premierpups presented here pictures and her personality is excellent. I appreciate how dedicated Premierpups are to their pups and how they let me know with emails, phone calls, and texts. Thank you Premierpups and I will gladly share the news to anyone committed only to adopting from the finest.
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!
