So after much thought and research I have decided to become a pom owner. I have emailed two different breeders in my area with some general questions about their poms. One has gotten back to be so far and I have arranged a visit for this weekend. My question is about the the cost of a pom. One breeder has their puppies priced at about $1500 - $1800 and the other breeder is about $500 - $800. This seems like a big difference in price to me. Approximately how much do poms usually cost? shrug I know there is usually a price difference if you are purchasing a show quality dog or just a pet pom. I have no intentions of showing my dog, but I would still like to get a puppy that is close to the breed standard in regards to looks and the most important thing is that the dog is healthy. Can any one give me any insight in to costs etc that would be great. I don't want to pay too much . . . but on the other hand I don't want to get a super cheap dog and find out it has health issues etc. Thanks!
(ps. I am from Edmonton, AB, Canada)

Are the pomeranians that are $1500-1,800 exotic colored pomeranians. I find that they sometimes cost more. Also, I would buy a pomeranian from someone that shows their poms. Most have been breeding for awhile and know their bloodlines and the health issues. Hope this helps a little.

It depends on the quality of the dog. I don't know if you have ever seen a dog show but have you noticed how show poms look totally different than other poms?

They are usually priced for color, size, coat/quality etc.

Check out AKC sites for breeder referrals. I'd love to see what these poms your are looking at look like? Always ask for pics of the parents and sizes - you'll get a better understand of what your pom will look like as an adult and what size he/she will be.

So I went out to see the puppies and dogs over the weekend and they all look well bred, taken care of and loved. The female I was most interested in is 11 months old, will be spayed prior to purchase, has all her booster shots and rabies. They are asking $1500 canadian . . . is this a reasonable price??

For her age and quality, AND the fact that she is being spayed, I think the price is fair.

I too am looking for another pom - when I got Bella, I didn't know anything about Poms. I love her to death and she is my whole world but she is not show quality and after attending dog shows and doing research, I fell in love with the look.

$1500 with spay, potty training, papers, vet work etc is very fair and reasonable.

I found a 2 year old adult, show quality, no spay here in California for $1200 - which is decent, the age is what gets me, so I am still shopping around.

Please make an account when you get her!

Beautiful dog. I only paid 400 for my pom and I knew nothing about poms when I got her. She is still my heart and grew up to be such a beautiful dog. I got a great price for my pom I think but she is definitely not show quality. She's a lil to big and the white chest from what I believe is not acceptable for show dogs, but none the less... I think she's the cutest pom eversmile

I personally could never see myself paying 1500 for a dog, but thats because I could never afford it. If you can afford it, then go for itwink

Yes this was an old post when I was doing research on poms before I got Lilly. I searched rescue shelters in my area for small fuzzy/hairy mix breeds and poms in particular, how ever I wasn't having any luck. I had checked on kijiji and there were a few pom puppies in my area for around $600 - 900 and I wasn't sure how well they were bred(ie. backyard breeding etc.) And then I found Lilly for sale by a really reputable breeder in my area. The price was alot more then I originally wanted to pay, but she came with all her shots, spay and she was house trained. Despite the price I love her to bits!

If I was to get a second pom I think I would try to wait it out and try and find a rescue from petfinder or a shelter. To be honest usually I don't rush in to things especially getting a dog/pet but my boyfriend was pressuring me to "hurry up and just pick a dog already". The dog was suppose to be a first year anniversary gift, how ever he ended up losing the money at the casino the night before I was suppose to go get her. frown So in the end Lilly was a gift from me to me.

(btw - the bf is no longer in the picture due to even more immature antics and his lack to take responsibility regarding choices he made in the past that resulted in him having two children.)
