Pomeranians are more than just adorable fluffballs of fur. They’ve been around for centuries, and have inspired many artists to create masterpieces on their behalf. Before a Pomeranian becomes an artistic muse, however, they’re still trying to figure out life as a puppy. Pomeranian puppies weigh only a few ounces and fit in the palm of your hand.
Throughout the first year, Pomeranians grow rapidly into miniature lions of affection and bouncy amusement.
Take one look at their thick fur and you can guess: ancient ancestors of Pomeranians came from the Arctic! They’re a miniaturized version of the Spitz dogs that are closely related to husky and malamutes. After they were bred to their smaller size, they were named ‘Pomeranian’ from the region of Pomerania, now part of western Germany and Poland.
Pomeranian puppy facts
Classical musicians like Mozart and Chopin have dedicated songs to Pomeranians, and famous artist Michelangelo had one as a trusty friend. You can see that Pomeranians are more than just toy dogs—they’re truly fabulous. They’re also bright, opinionated, and feisty.
With a face filled with expression, Pomeranians are small, compact dogs with a thick fur coat. Their fur is double-coated, with a short undercoat and a longer outer coat. They also have a recognizable plumed tail specific to the breed.
Most notably, there are 23 colors of Pomeranian fur. This wide breed variety means each Pom is destined to be slightly unique, though most come in an orange-red hue.
With a big dog personality, Pomeranians are highly intelligent and aware of everything happening around them. Due to their size, they’re happy being indoor pups and love companionship.
Though small, Pomeranians tend to walk with a confident and proud gait. Anyone can see that they are 10 feet tall…on the inside.
Grooming & Health Needs
As puppies, Pomeranians need only minimal bathing and brushing. As they mature, however, their coat needs attention. Besides brushing out Poms regularly to keep the hair from matting, it’s recommended to go to a professional groomer regularly to cut nails, clean ears and get fur trimmed. The classic teddy bear cut is a cute option for a Pom.
Pomeranian puppies must be trained early and often in walking with a leash. Due to their petite size, they’re prime targets for larger dogs or even bird predators. They must also be taught to come when called.
Equally as important is training your Pom to stop jumping. Their joints get strained when they jump, so consider getting dog stairs that go up to the couch or bed if they’re welcome up there.
Lastly, housebreaking is important. If your Pom is mostly an indoor dog, make sure they know the bathroom rules of the home!
Pomeranians generally enjoy being lap dogs but need a lot of opportunities to run around and play. Like all dogs, early socialization is important for a Pomeranian puppy, but due to their petite size, make sure they’re socializing with smaller dogs.
Pomeranians live between 12 – 16 years on average.
Who is the best human for a Pomeranian?
Pomeranians are perfect for family life, as long as any children are old enough not to roughhouse too much. Pomeranian puppies are very small and fragile, and young children may unintentionally hurt a smaller dog without even realizing it.
Due to their size, city or suburban life can work well for these petite pups. Poms can be indoor dogs as long as they get short walks and indoor exercise. Lastly, because of their big personality, they are surprisingly excellent watchdogs!
