Save a Stray
||The Pomeranian is a lively little dog. Intelligent, eager to
learn, very loyal to its handler and family. Willful, bold and sometimes temperamental.
|Country of Origin:
||Red, orange, white or cream, blue, brown or black.
||The Pomeranian's very long, double coat should be
brushed frequently. If you work from the head, parting the coat and brushing it forward,
it will fall neatly back in place, so the task, although time-consuming, is relatively
easy. The cottony undercoat is shed once or twice a year. Dry shampoo when necessary.
Clean the eyes and ears daily and take the dog for regular dental checkups.

||Some blood lines are prone to slipped stifle,
dislocated patella, heart and skin problems, and eye infections. Since they are prone to
early tooth loss, feeding dry food is recommended to keep the teeth and gums in good
condition. Be sure the veterinarian also keeps the dog's teeth clean. Newborn pups are
rather tiny and fragile. Three newborns can be held in the palm of ones hand. Small
females often need cesarean sections deliveries. When the dog is old it may become molted
with bald spots. Visit Healthypets.com for reasonably priced heath care products.
