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.

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!!!
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.
We brought our teacup Pomeranian Twyla home from Premier Pups about a year ago. She has the sweetest, silliest personality and she is the perfect addition to our family! Premier Pups was a breeze to work with and their facilities are beautiful and well-maintained. Everyone we worked with at the company was friendly and knowledgeable. We have been raving about Premier Pups to all our friends and we plan to get another teacup Pomeranian here in the future!
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.
I purchased “Cream” who we renamed Winston exactly 6 years ago today. He has been the absolute best gift I could have ever asked for. He is the sweetest boy and I can’t tell you enough how thankful I am for him. I remember premier pups was very clean and the staff was very helpful. Thank you for giving me the best dog in the world.
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!
I bought snow in 2012 and he's the best dog ever! He's sweet and very loving! He loves to cuddle ?? I have'nt had any problems with him and I love him. If I ever want another dog I would definitely order from this site again! They are reliable and trustworthy! Thanks for a great dog!
Premierpups provided excellent air transport and starter kit for us to get off to a good start with Bora. We followed the instructions well and in no time Bora was adapting very well. Bora is everything you see when Premierpups presented here pictures and her personality is excellent. I appreciate how dedicated Premierpups are to their pups and how they let me know with emails, phone calls, and texts. Thank you Premierpups and I will gladly share the news to anyone committed only to adopting from the finest.
