If they all normally get along together, it's probably fine, but I would keep her separated when she is close to having the puppies.

I prefer to keep my dogs seperated when I am not home and they are expecting there can be alot of pack changes and I prefer not to worry while I am gone.That being said there is usally someone home at my house so they are not crated often

Leaving a femail Pom. home w/ 2 male Pom.

I have 3 pom. 1 female and 2 male and they're all siblings. They're just puppies now and i know that my female pom is going to start her heat when she's around 6-8 months. Should i separate her from her brother when she start her heat? Can i keep all 3 of them or do i need to give the female one away?

Re: Leaving a femail Pom. home w/ 2 male Pom.

Either have her spayed and her brothers neutered or relocate her to a new home. Just because they're siblings doesn't mean that they can't or won't produce puppies.

no, she haven't come into heat yet, but im just thinking ahead because right now she's ok w/ being around her brother but what about later in the future? like when she come into heat, should i separate her then or is it ok for her to be w/ her brother.

Sounds to me that if the female isn't already pregnant, you're planning on it. Word to the wise: DON'T.

How old are the pups now?

If you have enough $$$, get them all fixed (depending on what age they are now). If not, get the female spayed, and then save up your money to get the males fixed at a later date.

As a Pomeranian Breeder, I'm wondering unless you have the parents, why you would have 3 from the same litter?

Unless you plan to breed (which you cannot breed brother to sister, it is strongly not recommended!) than you should get them all fixed.

Leaving the female with the males she WILL get pregnant during her heat, and She could possibly get pregnant by both of them, and have a multiple sired litter. Not good.

If you are looking to breed, I strongly recommend not keeping litter mates. You could keep the female, and neuter thee males and sell them, and then turn around and but a unrelated male, But if you do not plan on spaying her, or neutering them, I strongly recommend re homing the males.

I do hope you know also that Poms have a very high need for C-sections which will cost you anywhere from $700-$4000 depending if its during vet hours or not. So if you do plan to breed, do your research.

Umm... are you really even considering advising the OP to breed? There's a lot more to consider than not breeding sister to brother and an emergency C-section. What about health testing? What about titles for the parents?

Wow.
