Most buyers want to purchase a Pomeranian dog in Teacup, Toy or Miniature Pomeranian. Buying from a licensed breeder guarantees that your new Pomeranian will grow up to breed standards. What are these standards? Your puppy's gene structure itself. Professional breeders know how to carefully choose characteristics and make the optimal combinations to produce a dog purebred pomeranian

In the Pomeranian Factory kennel we preserve the characteristics of the breed through constant participation in dog shows, so all the parents of our puppies are pedigree dogs champions and referees, who manifest the traits of the pure breed. For example, puppies purchased from our approved breeders (left), they have reached the threshold of maturity while perfectly preserving their genes and breed traits (right): 

Without a thorough study of the breed standards and participation in Pomeranian dog shows organized by licensed breeders, the breed traits can easily be lost. Although the puppies may seem authentic when they are young, once they reach adulthood they begin to exhibit characteristics foreign to the pure breed: long back, long nose, disappearance of the fluffy coat, long ears, weight exceeding breed standards (3.5 kg). 

A large number of so-called breeders scam and mislead customers by showing them puppies that are of the Spitz breed in general, but not of the Pomeranian breed. As you can see in the pictures below, although still as cute as ever, the litter of a similar breed (left) loses the characteristics you paid for when it reaches maturity (right):
