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!!!
He was a very energetic and friendly puppy. Couldn’t ask for a better one. Picked him up at the airport with a nanny.
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.
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.
We are excited and delighted to have Miss Harley in our home. The whole process with Premier Pups was outstanding. We picked her up at the airport and we had her even before the baggage from her flight had been announced. She has adapted well, eating the hard dog right away and taking her meds without issue. We had search quite a bit online before selecting Premier Pups for our Pomeranian and so glad we did.

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!
Phoenix, formerly named Chai has been an absolute joy! She was a very shy pup still is but that’s okay. We just continued to love hr and make sure she had everything she needed and she warmed up to us! She enjoys being outside as you can see, so every morning I open the patio door so she can look out there while I work before taking her out. She is the perfect puppy for me and glad I have her in my family now ?? Premier pups was great and supportive I think everyone should buy from them!
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.
