Q. I’m looking to breed my Pomeranian. How do I find a stud/bitch?
A. You don’t. Unless you are serious about starting a quality breeding program, you do not want to breed your pet. Pomeranian’s are very difficult whelpers and are notorious for 3:00 am emergency visits to the vet for C-sections that range in cost from $1,500 – 3,000. Pups often get stuck in the birth canal and die before they can be retrieved, especially by an inexperienced “breeder”. Typical litters are 2-4, but singletons are common. Then there is the expense of vaccinations, worming, vet checkups, etc… and your pup may still die from hypoglycemia in the first couple of weeks.
Q. I’m looking for a Pom to breed to my Husky so I can have a Pomsky.
