Pomeranians are not fertile dogs. The average litter size is 1 to 3 puppies. It makes breeding Pomeranians a really hard business. A limited set of genes does not allow breeders a great room for perfecting the breed. That is why the range of good breeding lines is so small, and high quality purebred puppies cost quite a penny.
However, buying a Pomeranian without pedigrees is fraught with danger. A puppy may fail to conform to the breed standard, leaving you with a feeling of disillusionment and fraud.
It is not rare when Pomeranian puppies turn out to be larger than it is expected, or experience personality dimensions. Hence, it is strongly advised to check out the puppy’s pedigree.
A responsible Pomeranian breeder will always be ready to explain how the sire and the dam were chosen. A breeder who carefully planned the litter is likely to know much about the leading stud dogs, and brood bitches.
Ask questions concerning the frequency of breedings. It is also good if the breeder informs you on the issue of awards the parent dogs have. References from other Pomeranian owners will confirm the breeder’s high standards.
It is a good idea to contact local breed clubs in search of a reputable Pomeranian breeder. Experienced breeders are likely to announce their puppies some time before they are born.
It is done to give potential owners time for making decision. Besides, a larger number of potential owners let breeders better determine which homes are suited best for their little Pomeranians.
