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.

My daughter, Amanda purchased a puppy from Premier Pups in September 2016. I can honestly say that from the start of the process to the end of the process it was a great experience. Mike (the owner) was awesome and very knowledgeable and guided us through each process. Mike was always available to answer any questions that my daughter had as well as myself. I would highly recommend this company if you are in search of a puppy. Minnie has brought us so much joy and she is so much fun! I love her personality and she has filled a void that we all needed. :)
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!
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.
Milo came into our home April 22nd weighing 1.6 pounds. as of June my boy is now 5 pounds :) he’s absolutely crazy and loves playing with his cat “brother” and loves to eat and go on walks and enjoys car rides. Milo loves being the center of attention. He’s been a true joy to our family!

My boyfriend and I purchased Bear in September of 2015 and he has been such a great pup. Premier pups gave us all the information we needed when Bear was a puppy on how to properly care for him, and they were super helpful when we had questions. Bear is going on three years old now and is playful, spunky, and cute as can be. I get compliments on how adorable he is everywhere we go. Thanks, Premier Pups!
We are grateful for the calming, caring and comfortable process presented as well as the professionalism that accompanied along our journey. Our handsome pup, previously named Julio now JoVian MoonBeam is happy, healthy and found to be a heavenly addition. Thank you! Sara
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!
This is our first puppy. We were looking for so long and finally found this website. I am so thankful for the great service before and after purchase! Highly recommend!!
Fabulous experience adopting a Pomeranian puppy from Premiere Pups! I am absolutely in love with our little guy Dexter. His original name at premier Pups was Bento but, we changed it to Dexter. It just seemed to suit him, as he is very smart & quick. We just adopted him on May 8th & he is 8 weeks old. I can't say enough good things about this company. Everything went smoothly from start to end at Premiere Pups. I dealt with several people at the company, all who were very nice & helpful. I found out the people they hire, all are pet owners & animal lovers & it really shows. Everyone you will deal with goes above & beyond to make your experience comfortable & perfect. I want to thank Lacie & Angie especially. These lades are so sweet & thorough, they are exceptional. I spoke to & texted with Lacie numerous times, from the moment I left a deposit, to the day our puppy was personally delivered to us at the Daytona Beach airport. She kept in touch with me every step of the way & made sure things went smoothly. A true professional & caring young lady, who is also an animal lover herself. We paid a bit extra to have a nanny carry him in the plane & deliver him to us. I thought the extra money was worth it, because I did not want to have an 8 week old puppy sitting in a cargo plane compartment all alone for hours, so I paid to have the nanny Angie bring him on the plane. She was able to give him some food, water & comfort him on the place, which I thought was the right thing to do. Angie was wonderful & the perfect puppy nanny. She kept in touch with me & sent me pictures & videos at the airport. She was the sweetest lady & a true pleasure to deal with. A big thank you to Angie for delivering him at night & for enduring such a long day of travel. I highly recommend Premier Puppies. They are a top notch 5 star company, offer impeccable service & deliver a precious puppy. Sincerely, Danielle in Ormond Beach
