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.

I loved my experience with Premier Pups. We searched and waited for 2 months to find a perfect puppy. We saw Atlas(Domino) and fell in love with him. We weren’t sure we’d get him but we moved up pickup so we could. We got him on 10/19/19 and he’s perfect everyone says he looks like a baby bear even his Vet they love when he comes in for his check ups. In about 2 years we will get a playmate for him and we won’t look any further than Premier Puppies. They called once a week for a month just to see how he’s doing. That’s dedication.
I received Penni Mar 26,2020. She’s my sweet fur baby. My experience with premier was wonder. They are with you every step of the way, they give follow up phone calls. They even called on Penni first birthday. I have now adopted a second Pom to be revived on Mar 4th, 21. Penni definitely needs a sister We are excited and she’s coming by private jet????how cool is that
This is Lolo , she is now 2 years old . That is her sister, Lolo is just an amazing little dog she is Loved deeply and just the cutest little baby.
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. :)
She is just adorable! The cutest and sweetest little girl ever... I had been looking for a white teacup Pomeranian for a long time. But could not find one that was close enough for me to pick it up (that was my plan at first) and that had a good price (teacups are just so expensive everywhere!). When I ran into this website I just fell in love with her. I asked for some more pictures but they did not have it at that time since she was still with the breeder. I was going to wait until I got more pictures in order to buy her, but after doing some research about PremierPups.com I not only felt secure to go ahead and buy her, but also to have them ship her to me since Ohio is a little far from where I live. Since the very first day she arrived we have had the best time of out lives here! She adapted super well... Ate (and is still eating) her dry food since day one and gets her naps throughout the day as well as sleeps super well during the whole night! I am just so happy that she is feeling safe and happy here! Thank you guys so much for my baby girl! WE LOVE HER! If you are wondering whether you should buy a puppy in this website... Don’t even think about it! Just do it already! They are super attentive and answer all your questions. Besides, as of what I saw, they take really good care of their puppies! JUST DO IT! You will be so much happier with your little fur baby! ??

I am very happy with my puppy (Butters). He is just what I needed to fill my heart up with so much joy. I had an amazing experience with Premier pups and will definitely be purchasing another pup from them in the near future! Thank you for your amazing service!
