Good With Dogs:⬛⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜
Pomeranian's are not the best choice for small children, especially if one of your children is afraid of dogs. Pom's are high active, barky and tend to become attached to one person in the family. Since your child is afraid of dogs, I would suggest getting a lower energy breed, or an adult dog so that the dog is not so unpredictable and scare your child. Breeds that would do well would be the Basset Hound, English Bulldog, and the Beagle. If you are okay with a larger dog, then the Golden Retriever, Labrador, and Rough Collie are all great dogs with children. If you are okay with even bigger dogs, the Newfoundland and the Great Dane are amazing and incredible dogs for children.
Unfortunately, the way the Pomeranian is bred now-a-days a large portion of the breeds eyes water most of the time. There is nothing you can do to prevent the watering. However, there are tear staining products that can get rid of the stains. These can be purchased at a vet, online or at a pet store. The best one I have ever used is called "Angel Eyes".
The average life span of the Pomeranian breed is between 12 - 16 years. Life span will all depend on the quality of breeding, how the puppy and dog is taken care of throughout its life as per the food the puppy/dog is fed, regular vet visits, and the regularity of exercise.
The average cost of a Pomeranian will all depend on where the breeder lives, the linage of the dam and sire and if the pup is sold with breeding rights or has to be spayed/neutered. The average cost could be anywhere from $450.00 - $1700.00.
We bought our first Pom 15 yrs ago. We recently lost her and we are devastated. We paid $350 for her. She was beautiful. I do not understand why they are so expensive. I would think that a responsible breeder would want their puppies to go home with loving people to safe environments. Just saying.,.
I agree with you. I just lost Chewy, he passed away on May 17th. I can barely handle this! I got Chewy by driving by a house. This man was sitting on his porch looking depressed. I stopped and began speaking to him. There was 2 puppies, his wife left and took all the money, the car, and the mother pomeranian. She has papers. This woman left him with 3 young children and no way out for this man. He gave me the 2pups, I in turn gave money and put money at the grocery store. Now that's unconditional love
