Hi guys so tomorrow I will be buying a Pomeranian from someone in my city who had a litter of them. I’m really excited but something I noticed was that the puppy looks quite big compared to the Pomeranian puppies I’ve seen online. I just need reassurance that it’s an actual Pomeranian I guess? I will attach images the person has sent me of the puppy. Any additional comments and tips would be great!

difficult to say from that picture. how old is the puppy? have you seen the parents? etc etc . but let me say this if there are any red flags, any doubts, walk away there is always another puppy.

Well I believe the puppy is around 3 months old. It was originally a litter of 5 but he’s the last one left. I saw the picture of the entire litter but the guy removed the post when I claimed the last puppy.

It might also be the angle of the picture since he appears smaller in one of the attached photos which is actually a video

Ok just be aware of safe ways to buy a pup. Check the person do they sell pups more often , are they regestered, do they have the mother dog? Ask to see paperwork is the pup fully vaccinated (it should be by now) they should let you see the mother..If the mother is out for a walk or gone out to visit someone thats a big red flag, this could be a third party dealer.
Dont rely on the photos they had in the ad that was to lure you in. What if something goes wrong, will they take the dog back ? Have there been any health checks on the pup or the parent? What questions did they ask you, are they interested in you or just your money?

Good breeders will ask questions and be ahppy to answer yours if they dont then its another red flag..
Good luck

Yes, I should be picking up the puppy in a few hours.however I will make sure to ask questions right before pickup. Might post update pictures if I end up buying him. Thanks for your help!

Really cute puppy. Most small breeds like them are usually a bit bigger than the registered show bred types. It is hard to tell the size from a photo as there is nothing to compare it with but if the litter was larger than two or three pups, the mother is probably a bit bigger but still will make a great pet.

How cute! My GF wants a pomeranian so badly. Can you give us an update? I am very curious how much did he grow :) Btw I would say it is 100% pomeranian :)

My neighbor has 2 Poms.......very irritating. When she lets the dogs into her fenced back yard, they yap non-stop.

My mini-schnauzer just ignores the yap yap yap yap.

Please train the dog to control the barking. Please. I don't expect a dog to never bark, but non-stop yapping is extremely irritating.

Yes, my dog barks. Although, he has learned to control when he barks. If he gets carried away, then a simple "Quiet" command quells the noise.
