Are there Teacup , Toy Pomeranians, Mini Pomeranian, Miniature, Pocket, Teddy bear, or Standard Pomeranians ? Simply no, nearly all of these terms are not utilized by registered show Pomeranian  breeders.

Frequently, prospective Pomeranian owners wanting to obtain a typical high quality, correctly sized Pomeranian ask for a Teacup  Pomeranian or Mini Pomeranian. Officially neither variety of Pomeranian exists. Purchasing your puppy from a registered show breeder will ensure that your Pomeranian will mature correct to the breed standard.

What is the Pomeranian breed standard you ask ? The breed standard is the “blueprint” of the breed. Dedicated show breeders carefully select for the traits and characteristics described in the breed standard. By participating at dog shows, show Pomeranian breeders are able to evaluate and compare breeding programs.

Without study of the breed standard, meticulous selection for breed quality and regular evaluation of breeding programs by participating at dog shows the very essence of the pomeranian is quickly lost. Breeders who are dedicated to the breed do extensive health testing and prove their Pomeranians in the show ring prior to breeding. These type of breeders are often referred to as conservation breeders, as they are working to preserve the Pomeranian dog.

Pomeranians bred by people who do not show their Pomeranians may look adorable and very cute as young puppies. New owners are often captivated with the appealing ball of fluff, but are purchasing a totally different dog to the “show” type Pomeranian.These puppies frequently mature considerably larger than the Pomeranian breed standard, lack the correct Pomeranian double coat, becoming very long in back, long nosed, having big ears & a low set curly tail.

Many pet Pomeranian purchasers are dismayed when their Pomeranian puppy does not grow up to look similar to “Boo”. It should be explained, I don’t see show flaws as detrimental in pet Pomeranians. I adore each and very Pomeranian which exists. All dogs are lovely, but if you intend to purchase a Pomeranian safeguard yourself by spending a little extra time selecting your Pomeranian and purchase from a show Pomeranian breeder.

Is there a throwback Pomeranian? Simply No! There is no dog breed called a throwback Pomeranian and there is not an official term “throwback Pomeranian”.  Perhaps this term could be used to describe a pet shop/puppy farm or  backyard breeder type Pomeranian, which often resemble a German Spitz more than a Pomeranian.
