All the many reasons to love them...
Watch Dogs-They make keen watch dogs! You can trust a Pomeranian to alert you with barking upon every knock at the door, ring of the bell or random cat who happens to wander onto her territory.
Size- Pomeranians range between 3 to 7 pounds. They make great lap dogs and apartment life will suit his exercise needs well. If you're looking to make a Pom a pet, temperament should be your first consideration, not size, but if you ARE searching for a Pomeranian in a teacup size, click here.
Friendly-This is a very "people friendly" breed. Not especially shy or timid, he can be trusted not to nip at the heels of strangers. He's friendly with and tolerant of other animals, but can become defensive and suspicous around small children.
Trainability-Under the right circumstances, Poms do well with obediance training. It's important to let this breed know that you're 'in charge' without being too harsh. We highly recommend these positive training techniques.
Excitability-Not especially temperamental, they are easy going and relaxed for the most part. Supervision is always recommended with small children.
Pomeranians are not a good idea for people with small children.
Even the most well behaved child can’t help mishandling a dog this small.
Pomeranians can also become nervous and snap at children. Despite being small, they can pack a serious bite.
The smaller your dog, the more fragile her bones are. Broken bones caused by falls are more common among toy breeds.
Hypoglycemia is also a matter of concern for the owners of these small breed dogs. Often their tiny bodies are unable to properly regulate blood sugar levels.
Seizures- Pomeranians are known to suffer from epilepsy. While some seizures could be brought on by hypoglycemia, other causes of these seizures are simply unknown.
Tooth Problems- Pomeranias suffer tooth loss at a much higher rate than other breeds. Proper tooth care is important to the health of your dog. Bacteria from tooth decay can quickly spread through the bodies of these tiny dogs causing illness or even death.
