Hi,

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)

I would be very thankful if anyone could help me.

Thank you!

The link does not work! Yes, Poms can change colors and it is hard to predict their size as well.

Theodore they put spaces inside the link it is between the E and the 3 once you remove that the link will work. The breeder doesn't mention anything about having pedigrees or being able to register your pups. Also, I noticed that they missed spelled a lot of words. Your best bet is to contact the breeder, ask many questions. Like are the dog registered, can the pups be registered, are they health tested, do they have their first round of shots, ect. If answers to most of those questions are no, go to the next breeder.

It works! I agree with Cam. It is kind of shady that they misspelled so much. I wouldn’t buy a Pom without a health contract (a written NOT verbal contract). If you want to make sure the dog is purebred, ask for AKC papers. If the dog doesn’t come with papers, then that is a clear indicator that something is amiss. Good luck! The pictures are cute though.

Although they do look like Poms to me (the parents), I would be a lil weary because they are advertising the pups as wolf sable. Wolf sable are very hard to get hold of... a lot of 'breeders' like you to think they are wolf sable perhaps because they know they can be popular.

Update: I went to see the parents and the puppies and they were so cute I ended up paying a deposit and securing a boy! I asked a lot of questions and she seemed to know a lot about Pomeranians and dogs in general. The father has no kc papers, that's why puppies can't be registered. They looked like pure pred poms and very well behaved. I'm due to take my puppy home in a few days, yay! This is the picture of my puppy: http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/404853_3179858137655_ 1301722912_3351551_881542655_n.jpg?dl=1 I know what your saying about health, and I'm going to ask for a full health check when I take him to get his first injections in a week!

When we're referring to health and health contracts, we're talking about genetic health testing that is done on the parents, grandparents etc etc. For example to test for Luxating Patellas, the breeder would go through the OFA and would not breed any dogs that have poor results. A physical exam done by a vet cannot determine any genetic health problems that may show up later on. "The vet says the parents are healthy" is not health testing either. Good luck with your pup, though.

How is everything going with your new pup? I hope all is going well smile

Nicky made a very good point. It is good if you can buy from someone who does health tests, as a check up at the vet will not be able to tell you if the pup has genetic problems etc.

Either way, I hope to see some pics soon! smile

He's doing really well. He's now 3 months and 1 and a half weeks. He's very smart, knows lots of tricks. I'm working on potty training him from pads to going outside now. It's a lot of work, but we're heading the right direction smile he's a real bundle of joy.
