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.

Our little Kali came home last night, she is very cute and playful. Our first night with her was a little tough because she wasn’t tired after her long day travel and she just want to play and eat lol! We are so happy with our new baby ?? . Thank you so much Premier Pups your service were excellent! Highly recommend..
Love this little girl! She transitioned into our home extremely well. She a joy to have she loves kids and has a blast running around with the cats. This was our first experience at premier pups and it was the best! Friendly staff and they are there for you to call anytime if you have questions or concerns I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to add a little bundle of joy to their family?
His name was originally Dax, we renamed him Luden! He was from a smaller sized litter so he is pretty tiny and adorable. Premier handled everything pretty well and I would totally recommend getting a puppy through them, HOWEVER, I do not recommend financing. The financial group that you get the loan from is awful and rude. I would research their financial group before making that decision. If you have the money up front to buy the puppy then this website is very easy to use and the staff are really pleasant to work with!
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.
Between my wife and her boss, we purchased a total of four doggies. Ours is the teacup Pomeranian in the picture, that we've renamed "Buddy." He is doing just great! Lots of energy! Our 13 year old Shorkie and 12 year old Chihuahua don't know what to make of him yet (day 2) but they are starting to get used to him. He came with detailed instructions for feeding and medicine, and we are following them to the letter. We enjoyed the video you sent before delivery day, also! In summation, after getting defrauded to the tune of $18,000 by another puppy website, we couldn't be happier with the service from Premier Pups. Literally, on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being a virtually perfect customer experience, you guys get a big TEN! Thanks for everything... p.s. Any potential customers who want to contact us about our experience, please feel free!
I am in love with my dog ??is the most very playful is very tender and I have a year with her and it is the best Everyone at home we love her is part of our family now thanks premierpups :)
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!
We got Mia March the 2nd. She is a furry ball of energy. She is so small yet spunky.
Thank you very much everyone at Premier pups for bringing this little baby to us thank you very much.
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. :)
