If you want to buy a puppy from a Pomeranian breeder, you may have to face some difficulties. First of all, a Pomeranian breeder is the proud owner of purebred Pomeranian puppies and he will not sell them to just anybody who comes by without checking his abilities. He wants a guarantee from you, that you will take good care of the puppies. He likes to have a discussion with would-be buyers and sometimes asks for an explanation about the buyer's choice of a Pomeranian puppy. He could also ask for a veterinary reference, if he knows that you already have pets.
Pomeranian breeders are always willing to discuss health problems and temperament problems for all their puppies. They can sometimes even provide pictures of some of the ancestors of the puppies. They are extremely possessive about their puppies and because of their attachment they do not sell them until they are sure that the puppies have a good home. Afterwards, they will only be too happy to give you tips on health issues, temperament problems or any other queries that you might have.
It is not an easy job to spot a fake Pomeranian breeder. Firstly, when the Pomeranian is just a puppy and its features are still not very prominent, it is difficult to judge whether it is purebred. But there have been cases when buyers have paid large sums of money to buy a purebred Pomeranian, and then later as the dog grew up, it was quite evident that it was a mixed breed. Duped buyers may ask for their money back, but unless there is a written guarantee, a refund may not happen.
Besides, a fake Pomeranian breeder would not be as fussy and possessive about his dogs as one normally is. The Pomeranian is a delicate dog and needs a lot of care. A proud Pomeranian breeder would have made his dog participate in dog shows and will be equally proud to display the accolades that it has won.
Pomeranian breeders are extremely proud of their purebred puppies, and if this pride is missing in the breeder of your choice, check out whether he is known. Often the breeders take their dogs to dog shows and for this the dog has to undergo lots of training. It is otherwise a delicate dog needing plenty of love and care. The websites of the dog breeders or the local newspapers are ideal places for looking for purebred Pomeranians.
The Pomeranian, after having lived with Pomeranian breeders, should be cared and loved in the family that it lives in. They can be trained to be good guard dogs, and can be very wary when strangers enter the house. They bark incessantly sometimes and that is why training them is necessary. This job is sometimes taken over by the Pomeranian breeder willingly.
Of course Pomeranians are temperamental too, and within the family, can sometimes be unfriendly towards children. But they are generally lively dogs and healthy too. In general they are loyal, intelligent and loving. They are a cute and inquisitive breed of dog and the curious expression on their face reflects this characteristic.
Exercise is vital for the Pomeranian. These dogs may be kept with families living in apartments, as long as they get their regular dose of short walks every day. They are playful and like to play with the other family members as well.
