Toy Pomeranians are easy to identify and hard to forget. They look like the world’s cutest, tiniest foxes with coats twice as big as their bodies. They have a high forehead, pointed ears, huge eyes and a button nose at the end of a slightly pointed snout. Some snouts will be blunter than others. The breeding trend seems to be for a profile like that of a Chihuahua rather than that of a miniature Spitz.
The average toy Pomeranian will be about six to seven ponds and look like a cross between a fox cub and a cheerleader’s pom-pom. They have naturally pointed ears, huge eyes and a pointed nose (although they can be blunted like a Chihuahua’s in some individuals). They are covered in long, puffy hair in the recognized colors of red, sable, orange, cream and sable, black, white, chocolate and a mixture of brown and blue tones. Their coats are double layered and need daily grooming.
Most toy Pomeranians are abandoned through no fault of their own. A lot do not get along with little children or boisterous, bigger dogs. They like to be the star of the show. But their thick, soft, profuse coats are a big reason why many get abandoned. This coat grows thickly, quickly and needs constant attention. If you have ever had a Persian cat, then you already know what is involved.
Toy Pomeranians are vain, highly intelligent and protective of whatever they like. If they bark and snap at strangers coming up to your door, take this as a compliment (in a way), as you are liked enough by your Pomeranian to be worthy of protection.
Grooming the dog daily is a soothing exercise not only for you, but the Pomeranian will love the attention. A good grooming every day will also make you aware of any early signs of health problems.
Toy Pomeranians can be willful and seem to pay attention to you only when they feel like it, but training is possible. You need to be persistent and patient. Training sessions should be short, filled with praise and treats (or a favorite toy given only during training sessions). Never hit your toy Pomeranian, as one solid blow can kill them. They are far more delicate than even a cat.
Toy Pomeranians have excellent senses of humor, although the level of this humor will vary from dog to dog. One Pomeranian has become a small Internet sensation on the YouTube show “Cute With Chris” by pooping her pile of poo in the shape of a smiley face.
They are also generally protective and will need to be closely supervised from attacking any visitors, whether they are animals or human. They are highly intelligent and can be trained (at their own speed). They can be difficult to housetrain because of the tiny size of their bladders.
