The Pomeranian is a very lively and extroverted little dog that enjoys being social and relishes attention. This breed looks a bit like a little fox with its distinctive puffy coat that comes from its thick, soft undercoat and harsh, long outer coat. Pomeranian coats come in colors ranging from black, blue, tan, brown, cream, orange, sable, red, silver, gold, grey, brindle, merle, fawn and white.

The Pomeranian is a very inquisitive and alert dog that might tend to bark a fair bit and can be shy around strangers. It is intelligent and loyal, bold and vivacious and tends to always be in a good mood.
The Pomeranian was once larger than it now is and has a very long and interesting history. From Queen Victoria to Martin Luther, from Sir Isaac Newton to Michelangelo it has won the hearts of many people. Pomeranians are certainly a little dog with a big personality.
- Pomeranians do have a sassy, independent side: they are self-confident (sometimes too confident) so training from a young age is important so the puppy doesn’t become demanding.
- Small dog syndrome can be a problem with this breed, where owners over-spoil them and they grow to think they are the pack leader. This is a human-caused condition, not natural to dogs, that will be avoided with training and obedience from a young age.
- The breed is intelligent and eager to please but has a short attention span so use positive techniques while training and keep sessions short and interesting — they enjoy learning and performing new tricks, and this is good for their mental stimulation.
Pomeranian Health Issues
It’s known that mixed breeds tend to be healthier than full breed dogs. This makes the Pomeranian have a lesser chance of developing serious health conditions but one, in particular, is more common in this breed.
Pomeranians are a popular breed that suffers from dental disease which may be the reason they are prone to it. It’s important to brush your Pom’s teeth on a regular basis. They also should receive a dental check-up by a veterinarian every six months instead of every year like most popular dog breeds. This ensures their teeth stay healthy.
Dental disease isn’t just a Pomeranian issue. Dental disease can occur in any breed. It can happen early as well. Most dogs suffer from dental disease by the age of the three. Proper dental hygiene doesn’t seem to cross many pet parents’ minds. But, it should.
