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.

In love with this precious girl!!!
I purchased Venice, now known as Harper, from Premier Pups on 9/24/18. This entire process was painless and went as smooth as possible. Everything was as described and the shipping from OH to PA was flawless. Harper has been a tremendous addition to our family and is the third of our fur babies. If either myself or anyone I know is in search of a new puppy, I definitely recommend Premier Pups.
This is Lolo , she is now 2 years old . That is her sister, Lolo is just an amazing little dog she is Loved deeply and just the cutest little baby.
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.
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.

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:)
I received Penni Mar 26,2020. She’s my sweet fur baby. My experience with premier was wonder. They are with you every step of the way, they give follow up phone calls. They even called on Penni first birthday. I have now adopted a second Pom to be revived on Mar 4th, 21. Penni definitely needs a sister We are excited and she’s coming by private jet????how cool is that
After tirelessly looking for a legitimate place to adopt a Pomeranian, I came across Premier Pups and I’m so happy I did! I laid my eyes on Ebony now Tulip and I knew she was mine! She is beautiful and sweet and loves her older German Shepherd sister Rose! Everyone was so helpful and the entire process was an absolute dream. The entire staff made this scary process so stress free and seamless, I will definitely use Premier Pups in the future and recommend them to everyone looking for a healthy pup!
I was searching for months for the perfect Pomeranian to add to my family. I’m so glad that I stumbled upon the Premier Pups website! I knew the minute I saw Coco Chanel (formerly known as Foxy), that my search was over. I finally found the puppy I had been looking for! ?? Coco Chanel has been home for 2 weeks and adjusting extremely well! Premier Pups has been super helpful with answering all of my questions before and even after the adoption process. And they continue to call/text to get updates on how Coco Chanel is doing. ?? 5 stars ?? all around!! I honestly cannot thank Premier Pups enough for bringing this precious little furball into my life and for making me the happiest Pom Mom ever. ??
