Is My Puppy a Pomeranian?

September 27, 2021

A small dog looking back at the camera.I recently purchased a sable pomeranian puppy from a pet shop. She is about two months old. Her size and her tail does look like a pomeranian but her coat is very short. Is her appearance normal for a pomeranian puppy at two months? I have added some photos. Thanks

I think you have a sable pomeranian puppy. And sable means the dog has dark-tipped hair. Your puppy does have dark tips.

As for the short coat. Young Pomeranian puppies do have short hair. Your puppy will not have long hairs until her adult coat has grown in. This process is usually complete by the age of 1-year-old. However, with some, it can be up to the age of 14 months.
Your puppy will going through the period, what is called the "Puppy Uglies" (from 4 months to 12 months). During this time, the puppy coat sheds off and the adult coat grows in. During this time, there are great changes.

I have a 5 month the old Pomeranian and a 6 month old Pomeranian and both have short hair. I have seen poms around the same age as mine and they have the long beautiful fur.

They are both healthy.

There could be some other genes mixed in way down the line, but they both look really good to me. There are poms that just by their lineage have slightly shorter hair than others. Sometimes it is just the "puppy" fur stage and then you turn around and they really fluff up.


Have you asked the vet to weigh in on the other breed standards?

They are so cute and cuddly looking!! Have lots of fun adventures together!

They are still too young for full growth - I think they get a second growth of fur when they get older. Maybe they are not pure bred. Don't worry if they don't get too longer fur - you will love them just as much.


I've had 5 of these beautiful dogs & they made my life a pure joy. Enjoy....
