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....
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.
How dog-friendly is New Mexico?
New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups.
Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.
Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services.
Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!

They placed 16th for pet budget and 7th for outdoor pet-friendliness. The city lagged behind a bit for pet health and wellness, ranking 83rd.
A separate study by the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shares great information about dog parks. They published a ranking of the 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Albuquerque ranked well in the 13th spot with 2.4 dog parks per 100,000 people.
