Pomeranians make excellent companions for families and individuals alike and they get along well with children and cats. They're often seen in agility courses or competing in dog shows, thanks to their high energy and intelligence. This energetic breed requires short walks and indoor playtimes to keep them happy and healthy. Adult Pomeranians typically weigh between 3 and 7 lbs and stand 6 to 7 inches tall.
When Do Pomeranians Stop Growing?
Most Pomeranians experience the majority of their growth between 2 and 12 months of age. The size of your Pomeranian's parents can influence its growth, with the chest sometimes continuing to grow into the 14 to 15 month period. Factors like home environment, genetics, diet, and exercise can also affect your Pomeranian's growth.
Keeping Your Pomeranian Healthy
To ensure your Pomeranian stays healthy, schedule regular veterinarian visits every 6 months to one year to monitor any changes in their heart, eyes, kneecaps, and hips. Investing in pet insurance is recommended to help cover any veterinary costs that may arise.
