Pomeranian

PuppySpot is great. Everything was smooth sailing. I received updates from the breeder every two weeks. I even got my puppy a week earlier than projected because he had a clean bill of health and reached all the milestones for his breed (Pomeranian). He is a ball of energy and such a good boy. I was apprehensive at first to order my pup through a website. Now I will totally recommend PuppySpot if you are looking for a pup. It was easy and they do care about the puppies and their forever home....

Pomeranian Characteristics

Pomeranians are tiny dogs with extraordinarily large personalities. Outgoing and full of energy, Poms love to play and perform for their humans. They are low maintenance because of their size and make for great companions in any home, including apartments. Poms play nicely with most other animals but will need attention around big dogs. Poms don’t realize how small they are and may get territorial with a dog many times their size!

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Pomeranians are the smallest of the Nordic dog breeds. Their ancestors are large sledding dogs, so you can guess where they get their energy and bold personalities from. They have a soft and dense undercoat and a straight and coarse outer coat that gives them a look like a puffball. They can come in several different colors including red, orange, white or cream, blue, brown, merle, or black.

Poms are smart and enjoy playing with toys or and showing off their tricks to their human companions. With their smiley and fluffy disposition, young kids often treat them as a toy. So you’ll want to watch your kids and teach them to properly interact with your miniature pup. But it’s those same traits that make Poms such fun pets.

Poms have tons of energy and will need daily walks and play sessions. You’ll want to keep an eye on them when outside. They can slip through cracks or even climb small fences. Additionally, Poms (like other small dogs) are vulnerable to predatory birds, so you should be careful and keep them close at hand.

As a smaller breed, Pomeranians only grow to weigh between 3 and 7 pounds and 6 to 7 inches in height. The breed is generally quite healthy, but some may suffer from thyroid disease and allergies. Poms enjoy an average lifespan of 12 to 16 years.

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
