Pomeranian dogs got their name from a place called Pomerania that is now in Germany and Poland. These species were developed from Spitz species of canines. It’s shocking to know that the original Pomeranian dogs were larger in size. Their weight was around 30 pounds; they were used in herding sheep.
A Pomeranian falls under the category of small dogs. Its muzzle is short and straight. There is a variation in the color of its nose and coat. Poms’ teeth are very sharp; eyes are dark and in the shape of an almond. Its ears are erected and always high. The coat in the area of chest and neck is longer. Pomeranians are found in many coat colors like red, white, brown, black, brindle, orange and so on. But, most adopted ones are seen in white.
These tiny canines look very adorable and delicate, but, are courageous and perfect for guarding. In spite of weighing around 10 pounds, they don’t consider themselves weak and are always ready to deal with any strangers and other animals; when issues related to the safety of their family and owners happen. When they sit on the lap of their owners or cuddle them, their pure and selfless love is beyond description.
If one keeps a Pomeranian as a pet, then they must train their pooch from its puppyhood. A Pomeranian is not good with kids, so keeping this tiny bowwow with adults is wise unless training is given.
It’s puppyhood’s first four to six months is an ideal period for training. At this phase, sharp mental capacity enables Pomeranian dogs to learn something quickly. Potty training, leash training, basic training like sitting and standing must be given.
Pomeranian dogs should be fed with a food having healthy nutrients like protein, fat, carbohydrates, omega 3 and 6, calcium and some essential minerals.
There are many health issues which tend to happen to Poms. Some of them are heart problems, infection in eyes and skin and decaying of the tooth. Whenever they seem fragile, smelling a lot, unable to climb stairs properly; then they must be taken to a dog’s vet immediately.
