How big does a Pomeranian grow and when does the hair start standing out?

I have a Pomeranian that is huge and her hair is not standing out. Is that the way they grow some times? I was told she is a pure breed.

Pomeranians that are poorly bred might be a little bigger and they may have "flat coat" instead of a puffy teddy bear coat. I used to have a pomeranian and he was just a puppy but his coat seemed to be flat, and let me tell you that that bothered the heck out of me. I was so disappointed in him, and though I loved him, It bothered me and i was constantly saying how I wanted a "real pom". Well, one beautiful christmas morning, my mother took my boy for a walk, and he never came back. He was my best friend and the most amazing dog in the world, and I looked past so much of that just because I didn't like his hair. The hair doesn't matter, so what if your baby is a little bigger, or has a flat coat, she is still an amazing dog and a great friend to you,and please, please focus on that. I now have a pretty big black and white "flat coated" pom myself and I could not ask for a more beautiful dog in the world. I just regret the fact that I needed to loose the love of my life in order to stop being so superficial.

It sounds like you have a poorly bred Pomeranian or a Pom mix. Poms should weigh no more than 7 pounds full grown and they should be a puff ball from birth. They do go through the "puppy uglies", where there fur thins out a bit and looks a little raggedy, but it still should be quite puffy.

Don't worry about it. Just love her anyway.

The weight is 3-7 pounds for Pomeranians but, there are back yard breeder and puppy mill dogs that get up to 20 pounds.
So maybe your dog is the right weight but, is just a larger dog.
By the time the dog is a year old it is fully grown and should be full size.
Females also tend to have less coat because they go into heat then they shed then they start getting a nice coat then they go into heat later in the year and then shed again.

Poms should be under 7 pds.. however some are larger than the breed standard and may be bigger than that.

Hair can take up to 2 years to fully grow.. and not all poms will have the puffy coat. Some dogs just dont have the proper coat for their breed.
