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.

Mitch is 8 weeks old we adopted him two weeks ago. On February 15th, 2019 we went and picked Mitch up. Premierpups was easy to find. For us it was a two hour drive. It was 100% worth it. The first night home Mitch was playful and I have not heard my two little girls laugh so much. Thank you premierpups and I will recommend you to everyone.
We got Mia March the 2nd. She is a furry ball of energy. She is so small yet spunky.
We live in Dallas. We are very happy with our experience with Premier Pups in Johnstown, OH. They have been very attentive. They accompanied us all the time and continue to check in weeks after picking up our puppy. Our Pomeranian is a love. She is happy, beautiful, clean, healthy, well behaved. Thank you very much.
We met Maddie Ann for the first time after her trip by plane to our home. She came out of her carrier excited and friendly -ready to meet her new family. She was about 3 months old when we got her. It was love at first sight. She quickly adapted to us and us to her. She was so well socialized that we started playing immediately. She quickly learned the house rules for potty training -other then that, she can do about anything. She is a spoiled little puppy. She makes us laugh everyday. We have gotten her a new furry friend from the DDFL so she would have playmate. They are getting along very well. I must say, getting Maddie Ann from Premiere Pups was the best decision we could have made!!! Thanks to everyone there who did so well at getting her off to a good start. She is a constant JOY. (I wish I could add more pictures)

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:)
