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.

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.

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.

Piper is a year today and she is such a beautiful young puppy. I tell everyone I know to purchase a puppy thru Premier pups. They have the best customer service and created such a safe and trusting relationship with me. I met Piper at the airport via a direct flight. I was so worried due to it being in January when I got her. She was safe and warm and was not qt all traumatized by the traveling. Premier pups kept in constant contact with me and have continued to check on us. Thank you for all you do to help bring families together.

We purchased our sweet and gorgeous Gigi (previously Dana) from premier pups in July of 2020. She is a very smart and confident puppy. Our experience with premier pups was great! They provided excellent service throughout the purchase process, and went over and beyond to ensure that we received a happy and healthy puppy, including a great take home starter pack- vital for the health of those smaller breed puppies! We would highly recommend and may even purchase her a good mate soon!

The adoption process with Premier Pups couldn't have been better! I adopted Birkin (previously known as McLovin) and received him on September 26th. Premier Pups guided us throughout the journey and even followed up with phone calls to check up on us and see how we’re doing. It was a great experience. Premier Pups went above and beyond, especially with guiding us on how to properly care for our new teacup pup. Birkin has brought so much happiness into mine and my family’s lives. I can’t wait for all the new memories we’ll make. Whenever I take Birkin out, people always stop to take pictures or ask where I got him from. If I ever decide on adopting again in the future, I will definitely come back here. My Instagram is @siemprebuen and Birkin’s is @teacup.birkin if you’re interested in following our journey!

My daughter had been asking for a small dog for over a year. I had searched for a Pomeranian for a while but they were either over priced or obvious scams. Premier pups has been awesome great experience buying Domino, the process was very easy. I went to pick him up at the airport and he was so cute and eager to play. The follow was great and Domino has adapted very well. All of our family loves him and we are thankful he is part of our family now.
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!
