The Pomeranian standard calls for a dog which is between 3 and 7 pounds; has
small erect ears; a thick double coat (long guard hairs held off the body by a soft fluffy
undercoat) which is an all-weather protectant against heat, cold, rain or snow; a tail
covered with long hair which lies flat over the back; and a pronounced stop which gives
it the appearance of a high forehead.  All Poms should have small, almond shaped
eyes but it is not uncommon for both normal sized and over standard Poms to have
large, round eyes.

There is no such thing as a Teacup or Toy Pomeranian - they are a toy breed.  If
you see someone advertising them as teacups, pocket poms, etc. -
RUN! This is a
ploy commonly used by backyard breeders to get more money for their puppies.  

*Information obtained from the American Pomeranian Club -
Limited AKC registration means that the dog cannot
                                           produce AKC registerable litters (no breeding rights).
                                           * When selling a puppy on limited AKC registration we
                                           hold the AKC papers until proof of spay/neuter at
                                           appropriate age has been provided to us and verified.

Full AKC registration is available to approved homes.
