Q. I’m looking for a teacup Pomeranian? Where can I find one?

Q. I’m looking to breed my Pomeranian. How do I find a stud/bitch?
A. You don’t. Unless you are serious about starting a quality breeding program, you do not want to breed your pet. There is no money to be made breeding Pomeranians! Typical litters are 2-4, but singletons are common. They are very difficult whelpers and are notorious for 3:00 am emergency visits to the vet for C-sections that range in cost from $1,500 – $3,000. Then there is the expense of vaccinations, worming, vet checkups, etc. Responsible breeders know about the health concerns and challenges within this breed and strive to raise healthy puppies.
Q. I’m looking for a Pom to breed to my Husky so I can have a Pomsky.
A. No, what you are wanting is a mutt (aka "designer dog") and no reputable breeder would even consider this proposal. It is a controversial mix that rarely gets the combination of genes that works as far as looks and/or disposition.
Q. Where do I look to find a reputable Pomeranian breeder?
A. Check the APC Breeder Directory. You can also contact us and we can refer you to someone in New England.
