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.

We got Kona (chocolate) and Pebbles in Nov 2018 from Premier Pups. I would have loved to have been able to get more information about their parents (they weren’t from the same litter but apparently the same breeder?) but after falling in love with both of them from the videos that were sent to us and researching them with the BBB (A+ rating) we decided it wouldn’t have changed our mind about getting them. These two cuties quickly became part of our family and loved by all. Our precious Kona was recently hit by a car and is no longer with us :( and while we could never replace him we are looking on Premier Pups to find a new best friend for all of us and to fill the huge hole he left in our hearts.
My husband and I got Calle in April of 2018 and she is perfect!! We love her so much. The staff was so nice and allowed us to come and see her and even sent additional pictures for us in the beginning! It was our first time getting a dog from the internet so we were skeptical but they walked us through everything and made sure we were comfortable. They gave us a blanket, food, a little toy, and so much more to take home with us! HIGHLY recommend this wonderful place! I don’t know what I’d do without my Calle, thank you!
Just got my cute teacup Pomeranian dog Priscilla, she arrived to New Jersey safely by Delta air plane, Premier pubs team did excellent job took very good care for such small dog and shipped this cute and adorable pub to New Jersey Newark airport without any problem, and I am so happy with her right now, Thank you soooo very much!

We drove 5 hours down from the middle of Michigan to pick up Domino, and it was so worth our trip. The staff at Premier pups answered all our questions prior to coming down. The second they handed us Domino we knew he was worth it. He was so well adjusted from eating his kibbles, to his spunky personality, and loving nature (happy to give tons of kisses) He has given us MUCH happiness. We were given Premier Pups name by a Michigan breeder, and we have already recommended them to several others. Thank you.
We decided to get a puppy and started searching for a Pomeranian, we couldn’t find one locally so we started to search online! When my boyfriend saw Baby (previously Fluffy), he right away said she is the one! She arrived 5 days later. She is the most precious little girl ever! We absolutely love her.. Thank you premier pups for our little girl:)
We have had Cleo for 1 week! We love her so much! She is very active and loved to play with water botttles.. Ha! My daughter sufferes from ainxiety and the dr suggest we get a small dog or cat to help her.. So, she decided (after seeing her friend with her Pomeranian) that she wanted a Pomeranian! I waited a while but, finally decided it was time.. While shopping at an Apple Store I saw a man with an adorable poodle! He told me where he got her. I couldn't wait to get home and google Premier Pups! I was so happy to see all the great reviews! Then, I saw Lacie/ Cleo! I knew that was the one for my daughter! When I showed my daughter the picture and told her I had bought the puppy she cried. She stayed out of school to go with me to the airport to pick her up. Again, she saw Lacie/ Cleo and cried. We are so in love with this baby! Thank you!
He was a very energetic and friendly puppy. Couldn’t ask for a better one. Picked him up at the airport with a nanny.
As my husband is getting ready to deploy we thought getting a puppy would help with a distraction for the kids and I while he is gone. From the moment we got our Luna ( fluffy was her name before) she fit right in with our family and is the sweetest, smartest, and cutest dog I have ever known. Premier Pups was amazing through the whole process and even called to check on Luna a couple times after we got her. I recommend them to anyone who tells me their looking for a puppy. Thank you Premier Pups for giving us the final piece to our family!!
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.
