Ive always wanted a Pomeranian, and I saw an ad online about a Pomeranian litter in my local town. I've heard a lot of stories about "Pomeranians" growing up to look completely different, and I would like to ask you whether you think this is a pure pedigree Pomeranian? This is the link to the ad (my iPad won't let me include a pic here) http://www.pets4homes.co.uk/pets4homes/home.nsf/dogsforsale/C78E38F6 995A54148025797E007389B9

I would be very thankful if anyone could help me.

Thank you!
Trixie Bean!

The link won't work, but if I were you i'd do a little research about responsible breeders! While they may be nice people, I have no doubt that the person in the ad is what we'd call a "BYB" (backyard breeder). They likely love their dogs, but they aren't doing the health tests that are important for the breed!

I'd start by looking on a website called Champdogs, and also on the kennel club website for breeders. Be sure to ask them about whether they health test, and what the health is of their dogs. Heres a hint- if they say they have never had a health problem in thei dogs, they are lying!

smile Good luck!

Yeah, no talk of registration and the spelling errors concern me too. Professionalism is spell check.wink

Do you even- lift?

The ad doesn't say they're registered and even if they were, registration doesn't mean the dogs are healthy or a good example of their breed. No health tests or titles are mentioned.

Plus those puppies are way expensive for "good temperament" being their only breed worthy quality (and there's no proof that claim is even true). If you're willing to spend a large amount of money buying a dog, it's better in the long run to take the time to find a really good breeder.

well, pedigreed has nothing to do with quality, and frankly I wouldn't buy a dog based on pedigree status.

Pedigree isn't the most important thing for me either. Health and temperament are.
The parents are beautiful but are they siblings. Did she just decide to mate her pets? I also don't know about prices in the UK but they seem expensive for pups with no papers.

Siding with Lilith- Just because it is purebred does not mean it is a quality dog. Saw a great analogy on a reputable breeder website and long story short the point of it all was that a breed is much more than just its name and a little piece of paper.

Shake it baby!

There are many wonderful groups in the UK so if I were you, I would contact some vet offices for recommended breeders and follow up with some of the pom experts in your area.
A bit of research now will prevent further heartache and financial issues later!wink
