So you want to add a Pomeranian into the family? Or perhaps you are looking for a companion for yourself or somebody you know. Either way, there are many different places where you can find Pomeranian puppies for sale. Buying dogs as puppies has a few advantages but it requires a bit of work too because they’ll need to be trained in many cases – especially if you get them when they’re very young.
There are two places where you can find classified advertisements and they are local newspapers and online classified ads. Since many breeders or rescue shelters don’t usually have to advertise to find homes for their Pomeranians, it may be difficult to find many ads but it’s definitely possible. It’s also worth a try since you can search locally and not have to travel very far to meet your Pom.
Pomeranian Breeder Websites
When you adopt a Pomeranian from a breeder it can be quite costly but it can be a really great way to find a Pomeranian for you and your family. You can find a number of breeders doing a simple search online for “Pomeranian Breeders”. To localize it, be sure to enter in your city or state as well.
Many breeders have their own sites where they upload photos of the Pomeranian puppies for sale in addition to the Pomeranian dogs they have who breed the puppies so you can see what they look like as well. A good breeder is likely to ask you to give them some information about yourself, your home, other household pets and information about children living in your home. It’s important to be as honest as possible when you’re providing that information.
Choosing a Male or Female
Traditionally people tend to choose females when they’re looking for a small dog and males when they’re looking for a large dog. There are a couple of things to consider before you make your decision about a Pomeranian.
First of all, they’re equally easy to potty train. The males tend to act more puppy-like than the females do and they’re always seeking attention. Females are more independent and they’ll come around for attention but they’ll also back off when they’ve had enough. When it comes to fighting the females are much more likely to get into fights with each other than the males are. Female Pomeranians are the dominators and they can be very territorial as well.
It’s a good idea to meet Pomeranians in person before you agree to adopt one. This enables you to see how they interact with you and possibly your family members as well. Sometimes rescue shelters will let you bring a Pom home for a few days to see how it goes before they’ll transfer ownership of the dog.
Overall, Pomeranians make great household pets and they’re very enjoyable to be around too. They train rather easily, they’re intelligent and they make for great show dogs if that’s something you’re interested in.
