Ask a QuestionHere are the questions asked by community members. Read on to see the answers provided by the ThriftyFun community or ask a new question.
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!
Give them some time they are still babies!!! Also it matters on what you feed them for there coat also!
I would not worry if I were you. The hair will grow in.
They love to cuddle. I had always had pomeranians growing up but this is my first time actually having puppy pomeranians. Thank u
I found small breed food for them and it says it's also good for there fur. Its us blue buffalo basic Hopefully that works
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.
