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!
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.
