All Pomeranian pups
They have a cute face, thick fluffy coat with a sweet,
spunky and affectionate personality!
At about 4-8 months of age, you will suddenly notice
that the coat (fur) is getting a bit stringy and wispy and that your pom puppy all
of a sudden doesn't look like a pom anymore. Some vets - might - suspect that
you have bought a low quality Pomeranian.
Shame on him, he should know better about the Pom
Pomeranian puppies go through a very bad case of the puppy uglies. A few are
more fortunate and breeze through [this is usually during the winter months]
replacing their puppy coat with the adult one without you even noticing.
following is what happens -
baby fluff comes out and they tend to look very straggly or shaggy at that
point, some go very short hair as to resemble a long hair chihuahua instead.
absolutely normal - do not worry, as it all comes back. Bigger and better in
a good quality pom, so so in a lesser quality pom.
Generally - by the time your pup is 10-12 months old [it
varies a bit with the season - coats thicken faster during the winter months]
they will/should be in full coat.
If you don't get your female spayed,
expect to see this cycle again and again in females, especially after she has
had a litter of puppies. Fixed or altered males and females have a somewhat
"easier" time when it comes to the shedding of coat/s.
