Orange: A clear vibrant colour, which, at the moment, is the most favoured of all colourings. Orange Pomeranians may vary from an intense deep rust right through to a rich gold and a light honey blonde colour.
There are two types of Orange in the Pomeranian. Oranges can be born a sable colour or a clear orange. Puppies born a darkish sable frequently clear to a lovely orange at maturity. The other type of orange Pomeranian is born very pale and, in some instances, almost as white as a new-born. The coat colour with this type of orange will deepen until, at maturity, this puppy is also an orange. The orange Pomeranian-born sable will, as an adult, have darker points than the puppy born very light cream or pale gold.

Tan Points – Any solid colour or allowed pattern with tan or rust sharply defined, appearing above each eye and on muzzle, throat, and forechest, on all legs and feet and below the tail. The richer the tan the more desirable. Tan markings should be readily visible.
Brindle – the base color is gold, red, or orange-brindled with strong black cross stripes.
Parti-color – is white with any other color distributed in patches with a white blaze preferred on the head. Ticking is undesirable. Extreme Piebald: White with patches of color on head and base of tail. Piebald: White with patches of color on head, body, and base of tail. Irish: Color on the head and body with white legs, chest and collar.
Merle – Is actually the typical gray/black pattern. The Blue merle is in reality a black or black and tan with the dilution gene affecting the black coat regions.
The color of the points in the merles is influenced by the base color of the Pomeranian e.g. Orange merles, blue merle should have black points .
Blue, brown and beaver merles should have self colored points.
The Pomeranian Breed Standard does not permit blue eyes.
