Here at Pomeranians For Life we are committed to encouraging people to re-home a rescue dog, however we do understand that sometimes a rescue dog would not be the responsible choice for that individual.
We receive dozens of calls from people who have unknowingly purchased through a 'Puppy Farmer' or 'Backstreet Breeder' believing them to have been reputable.
These dogs generally grow into larger Spitz X's and/or are riddled with behavioural and health problems, with many ending up in rescue centres or the rehoming system.
Latest statistics show that One in Five puppies bought online or from pet shops require long-term veterinary care or die before they are 6 months old.
So how should you approach purchasing a Pomeranian?
