Pom Information Pomeranian Colours

White Pomeranian

An all white Pomeranian should be a solid white color with no lemon or cream shadings. The guard hairs and undercoat is also white. White Pomeranians must have black eye rims, a black nose, black lips and also black pads.

Newborn white baby Pomeranian puppies are ice white with all pink points. By the age of six weeks, these points should have darkened to black; however, the coat will remain snow white.

Will White Pomeranian Puppies Stay White ?

Cream, Orange and White Parti Colors and Light Orange, very young Pomeranian puppies are frequently erroneously described as white baby Pomeranians.  Always look at the hair at the back of pup’s ears. is there any color other then snow white ?

Biscuit or cream hair behind the pup’s ears usually means the Pomeranian puppy will turn out a cream or a very light orange Pomeranian instead of white in color.  Small light biscuit patches on the pup’s coat may indicate the Pomeranian white puppy is parti colored not white.

It can be difficult to ascertain the color of a Pomeranian white puppy until after the coat change at around 6 months.

Is an all White Pomeranian Dog a Rarity ?

Many have tried to breed show quality white Pomeranians. The only really successful white breeders have concentrated solely on the white Pom. Numerous breeders, over the years have tried and quickly given up on this challenge.

Breeding white to white can quickly produce problems, including Poms whose quality has reverted back to the old style Pomeranian, loss of pigmentation, lacking head and leg coat, poor coat quality and more.

A study of old pedigrees will reveal past white breeders who gave up on breeding the Ice White Pom and used their white bitches to better advantage in an orange breeding program.

History of White Pomeranian Dogs

White is one of the original Pomeranian colors. The original colors being: White, Black, Cream and occasionally a parti color was seen. It was not until Queen Victoria visited Italy and bought back different colored Poms did other colored dogs appear in the breed.


 The first champion of the breed was a white Pomeranian : Champion Rob of Rozelle. The breeder and breeding of this first Pom Champion is unknown.

White Pomeranian Dog Health Concerns

White poms are prone to the same health issues as other Pomeranians and have a similar lifespan.

One health issue related to many white dogs, of all breeds,  is deafness. As a breeder of White Pomeranians for many decades,  I have not come across a deaf white pom, but I have heard of poms who are deaf.

You should be purchasing your puppy from a show breeder, who does health testing and proves their poms in the show ring prior to breeding. Ask your breeder to have the hearing of a  Pomeranian white puppy checked prior to purchase.
