This weight chart for Pomeranian puppies will help you find out exactly how big does a Pomeranian get.

If you own a Pom puppy, you could be pondering his approximate weight once he becomes an adult. If you’re contemplating buying a Pomeranian, you may wonder how big a Pomeranian fully grown is.

The breed can sometimes be larger than typical guidelines for Poms. Therefore, trying to guess how big your Pom puppy will grow needs several formulae.

This article covers the rate and duration of the Pomeranian growth phase, general formulae, Pomeranian dog weight, reliability of a Pom growth chart, the breed standard weight, and our own formulae and Pomeranian growth charts.

Average Pomeranian dog weight and size vary greatly. Pomeranian full-grown size as an adult depends on various things, including genetics and many environmental factors. Enjoy our easy-to-use Pomeranian size chart.

How Much Do Pomeranians Weigh Full-Grown?

The Pomeranian average weight differs between male and female Pomeranians and between different bloodlines. Not all Pomeranian dogs are bred to the breed standard. 

How much should a Pomeranian weigh? The Pomeranian dog weight of Poms bred by champion Pomeranian breeders usually is between 3 and 7 lbs.

Your Pomeranian puppy’s genes play a very important role, so always observe the size of your pup’s parents. This is where being able to visit the breeder is extremely important.

If you are unsure of the correct Pomeranian adult weight, please check the Pomeranian Breed Standard.

Overfeeding young Pomeranian puppies can also cause unwanted growth spurts. Underfeeding is certainly not beneficial either. Both overfeeding and underfeeding can cause serious health issues for your Pomeranian puppy.

Always discuss any feeding issues with your breeder.  Your breeder will be able to advise you on the amount and type of food suitable for your Pomeranian puppy.

This Pomeranian puppy growth chart will help you determine an approximate weight for your Pomeranian puppy when fully grown. This is just an estimate of your Pom’s possible adult weight.

It is possible to estimate your Pomeranian puppy’s adult weight by using our Pomeranian weight calculator. But please remember this Pomeranian size chart is a guide only.

How to use the Pomeranian Puppy Weight Chart

Convert your Pomeranian puppy weight to ounces. 16oz equals 1 pound

NOTE: an example; 10 week old puppy current weighs 2.2 lbs conversion 16 X 2 + 2 = 34 ounces.

You may need to convert your Pomeranian Puppy’s weight from metric to ounces prior to using our growth chart for Pomeranian puppies.

  1. Find the puppy’s current age to the left then follow along until you find 34;
  2. Follow to the bottom of that column estimated adult weight is 5lbs.

When in doubt, use three times x your Pom pup’s weight at eight weeks or if your Pomeranian is a little older; the pup’s weight at 12 weeks should be multiplied by 2 for an approximate Pomeranian adult weight.

I have used the Pomeranian size chart at Dochlaggie Poms for over 40 years to calculate adult Pom weights. Dochlaggie has bred many Best in Show winning champion Pomeranians, and the Pomeranian puppy size chart has helped me to assess pups and potential champion Pomeranians.

Reliability of a Growth Chart for Pomeranian Puppies

It’s essential that you know the growth charts are only estimates. Whenever you’re looking at a specific chart, your puppy could have a slow-down or be having a growth spurt and so the finished estimate won’t always be correct.

On average, toy dog breeds like the Pomeranian gain approx. 5-10% of their weight each day is 1-5 ounces per week.

This is an interesting trend that can help you decide if you want a Pomeranian puppy and want to know what size he’ll be when he’s an adult.
Large puppies tend to be large adults. Small puppies tend to be small adults. However, as in most things, there can be exceptions.

Even if two Poms are the same weight and age, it doesn’t mean they’ll be the same as adults.
For example, you may have two 8-week-old puppies weighing 1.5 lbs.
11 months later, they have stopped growing; one is 9 lbs., while the other is a smaller 5 lbs.

You need to remember this while we check formulae and several charts to work out the rate of the Pomeranian’s growth.

Pomeranian Growth Rate

Pomeranian Growth From Birth to 8 Weeks

Newborn Pomeranian pups will weigh a few ounces. A Pom puppy has a fast-growing rate in month 1, doubling in size in just a few days.

Pomeranian Growth During First 12 Months

Within the first year, a Pom pup will grow rapidly and almost be an adult size. However, he doesn’t simply grow until he achieves an adult size.

He undergoes times when he’ll rapidly grow weight and times when everything comes to a standstill.

It’s advisable to examine him for weight gain every month. If a Pom hasn’t grown her size, in either height or weight, during the 4-week period, take him in to get a checkup.

Pomeranian Growth After 12 Months

When do Pomeranians stop growing? The answer is from 1 year to 18 months. Pomeranians stop growing during this period.

A Pomeranian is officially an adult at 12 months old, but his chest can widen more in the final few months in which he grows.

Pomeranian Growth Charts

As a Champion Pomeranian breeder with many decades of experience, I have been lucky to follow and keep track of the weights of plenty of Pom puppies as they grow.
These figures have become the basis for my extremely correct growth charts in most cases within a pound or two. However, it’s vital to remember that all the information I have covered here is only estimations.

Conversions are calculated this way:
Converting ounces to pounds: 1 ounce = 0.0625 lbs. (16 ounces = 1 lb.)
Converting ounces to kgs: 1 ounce = 0.0283 kg. (35.274 ounces in 1 kg).

What Can Affect the Growth of My Pomeranian?

If your Pom is a pure-bred dog, he’ll usually grow at the same pace mentioned in the chart.

Some Factors That Can Affect a Pom Puppy’s growth include:

Pomeranian Genetics

Genetics is the single biggest factor when defining a Pom puppy’s growth rate and final adult size, including what actual gene type is present and how genes interact.
Parents usually share the genes their pups share, and it forms the basis behind how growth charts work.

Pomeranian puppies purchased from show Pomeranian breeders are usually consistent with this Pomeranian puppy growth chart.

The exception to this Pomeranian puppy growth chart is that colored Pomeranians, like the white and parti colors, often grow larger than their orange brother and sisters.

Pomeranian Puppy Nutrition

Pom puppies should get all essential nutrients (amino acids, protein, calcium, phosphorus, sugar, calcium, fatty acids, and so on) from their mother’s milk.

However, once they have been weaned off their Mother’s milk, they must be fed a well-balanced diet to promote healthy development and growth. If a puppy’s diet doesn’t have the correct ratio and type of nutrients, his growth will be much slower. Over-feeding a Pomeranian puppy can also have serious consequences.

Ask your breeder for advice on correct Pomeranian puppy feeding.

Pomeranian Exercise

Regular exercise is crucial to building strong bones and muscles, but too much can inhibit a Pom puppy’s growth. A puppy’s leg bones grow from growth plates (aka epiphyseal plates) which are softer regions of bone that are underdeveloped.

If a puppy overdoes it, these delicate parts can fracture and either grow incorrectly or stop completely.


The level of growth hormones within a puppy can hinder his growth. If his pituitary gland won’t produce sufficient amounts, his growth can be affected, causing slower growth, so he’ll remain small as an adult.

Pomeranian Health

If a puppy has underlying health problems or disease, his growth can be stunted. Within his intestinal tract live parasites such as whipworms, roundworms, and hookworms, which hinder his growth because it restricts his nutrients.

Of course, the presence of disease and underlying health conditions can also affect a Pomeranian puppy’s growth. Parasites like roundworms, whipworms, and hookworms live in the pup’s intestinal tract, restricting the pup’s nutritional intake and growth.
