Buying a purebred dog is expensive, so it pays to educate yourself about the breed and dog breeder before making the purchase. This is especially true if you are planning on buying a purebred Pomeranian. Why is this true for this breed you ask? Because the prices for these dogs are high as is the popularity of the breed. This means many people are breeding these dogs, and not all of them are producing true purebred dogs with proven bloodlines. You are going to expect a true Pom as they are sometimes referred to, so doing your homework before buying a purebred Pomeranian ensures you get what you pay for.
When buying a purebred Pomeranian the better educated you are makes a difference so learn all you can about the breed and what characteristics to look for in the puppies. Pay close attention to the parent dogs to see how they react to strangers coming around them and the puppies. If they are aggressive forget that breeder and look for another.
Look at the environment the adult’s dogs and the puppies are living in. If it is dirty and the kennel or home is not up to clean standards then continue your search. Buying a puppy from aggressive parents of one who has been raised in a filthy environment is a clear red flag the breeder is just out to make a buck and has little concern for the dogs. If they hesitate or flat out refuse to let you visit with the parent dogs wave bye-bye and move on.
A quality dog breeder will be happy to give you references, show you around the kennels, allows you meet the parent dogs, provide proof of the purity of the bloodlines going back at least four generations, and have several questions they will want to ask you.
Quality dog breeders of purebred dogs ask many questions of prospective buyers because they really love their dogs and want to know the puppy is going to a good home where he or she will receive plenty of love and the best care as well as living environment.
For initial information about Pom breeders ask your vet and people who already own a Pom who they recommend. Start with a list of at least five breeders, and narrow the list down as you visit each breeder until you meet the best one.
Buying a purebred Pomeranian can be a fun and rewarding experience if you do your homework BEFORE making the purchase.
