If it’s a puppy you want to buy, or you plan to show dog, you probably want to go straight to a breeder. If you do plan to buy from a breeder, make sure you use one that has good of breed at heart and not just trying to make a quick buck. Some things to consider when reviewing breeders are:
- Length of time in business and how many puppies they produce every year – too many may be an indication that they are more interested in money then in enhancing breed. - Ask if they are involved in rescue for breed- it shows a compassion and caring for breed. - Make sure they know standard for breed. - Find out if their breeders are registered. - Ask if any of their dogs have been found to have genetic defects – they should not still be breeding these dogs. - A reputable breeder will be most concerned that his puppies are going to good owners. If breeder is grilling you about your family schedule and living environment then this is a good sign!
Once you have found your perfect pet Pomeranian, make sure you dedicate time to proper training and grooming so that your dog can be a happy healthy companion for life!
