Hello and thank you for visiting my web site. My name is Kelley and I am proudly owned and operated by a small group of Pomeranian dogs.
My love of this wonderful little lap dog began with my first pet Pomeranian dog named Rowdy. I was soon captivated by his loving personality and beautiful appearance.
I was interested in having more and possibly breeding these little dogs to share with the world. I purchased three girls and went to a nearby show to take a look at the show dogs. I learned very quickly about this breed. The three girls I had were spayed, and placed in loving homes as I began on my learning experience.
The AKC standard describes this breed as a “toy” breed, with the size for the breed standard being four to seven lbs. (The desirable size to show should be near five lbs.). Anything larger is NOT a standard Pom, and anything smaller is NOT a Tea Cup. This is just terms used by back yard breeders who are not breeding to the AKC standard.
These are a tiny Nordic breed with a stiff “stand up” double coat. The guard hairs are longer and usually deeper in color, the undercoat is softer and helps the coat to stand up. These dogs are easily maintained by a good weekly combing with quick fluff.
Through trial and error and MUCH reading, I have learned over the years to create a dog that is friendly, hardy, and as rugged as a toy breed will allow.
I do believe in “line breeding” on occasion, to keep a certain type I like to see in my dogs. Small round ears, high tight tail sets, moderate little faces. The practice of continually breeding related dogs quickly leads to single puppy litters, and short life spans.
Though I breed to produce a “show quality” look, health , temperament and soundness are the most important qualities to me. For this reason, I will not knowingly ever breed the merle gene into any of my dogs. Having had my own experience with this destructive, and deadly co-dominant gene, I will avoid it altogether. Merle is a color seen in herding breeds IE: Collies, Shelties, and Austrailian Cattle Dogs. It creates patches of light on a basically dark coat. When it is doubled up, OR slips through the locus unseen…It causes small or no eyes, a very short life span, and puppies to be re-absorbed in eutro. My personal best advice is when you see merle Pomeranians in a breeding program RUN! My belief is also that a true spitz breed is not merle.
In the past twenty seven years as a Pom lover, I have shown , studied, and researched many issues that are common to this breed.
I have been a member of The American Pomeranian Club, The Pomeranian Club Of Central Indiana, and a devoted supported of ethical breeding of these beloved little dogs.
I am currently downsizing my kennel and have a few well socialized and loving dogs available to pet homes only.
I currently research and assist in education for the public and my State Club. Issues such as health, nutrition, genetics, and any onformation I can share.
I can also be contacted to assist in rescue efforts.
