    Question Please Help, I Can't Find A Pomeranian Breeder That Seems Legitimate?

    Hello All,
    I really hope you can help me as I am running out of options here. First I’ll start off by saying I live in Perth Western Australia and I will not consider buying elsewhere and getting it shipped to me. I should also mention I have researched the breed for ongoing 5 months now e.g.; books, internet, speaking to owners, spending time with Pomeranians. I know all about puppy mills which is why I refuse to go to a pet store to purchase a dog.
    However I seem to be having trouble finding breeders in Perth Western Australia? Pomeranians don't seem to be all that popular in WA as opposed to NSW (so I’ve found). I have tried shelters and had no luck but have put my name down if one does come through.

    I really hope you can help me!

    I wish you luck!. I have to ask though, how come you won't get the dog flown to you?. I can't offer help sorry.

    I just don't think it'd be in the best interested of the dog?
    I mean before i buy it i want to spend time with it and see if were both suited to each other if that makes sense?

    If there are no pom breeders in WA you're going to need to consider another breed.

    It may be that WA climate and Pommeranians are not a fun combination, but I notice that doesn't stop people from owning huskies in Darwin.

    So to find a "legit" breeder you start here,
    Australian National Kennel Council

    Then you find the org on their website for your state.
    Dogs West - Best of Friends

    (Or the national org for the breed you're interested in)

    Then you find the breeder list for the breed you want.

    There seems to be only one in WA.

    So I would ring up and ask if she's showing, when and whether you could meet up with her and her poms with a view to buying one if that's possible.

    And if she isn't breeding/selling, you could ask her for recommendations to who to ask next.

    Or you could get a long haired Chihuahua instead. But I admit poms are insanely cute (as long as they're properly crutched) and quite well behaved despite almost complete neglect from their owners (some of the ones I've met cop this).

    Thankyou so much! I will check those out.
    I read somewhere that the Pomeranian's two layed coat offers protection from heat and cold? However you make a very good point.
    And there are plenty of huskies around in perth too! :s

    You can alos look for a breeder on Dogzonline.com.au
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Can they be listed on the blue forum and not registered with the ANKC / Dogs West?

    If dogs west only has one breeder listed in WA, is that all there is or can there be members who choose not to list?

    Hmmmm, she's been breeding for 5 years, but only registered for 3.
    She breeds for colour.
    She doesn't speak of any titles.
    She has a puppy for $2200
    And 'doesn't guarantee a show dog'.
    I think you could find better. I'll do a quick search

    Did you look at that website? ALL CAPS AND USES SMS Abbreviations. YIKES.

    And wants over 2K for the puppies. Says she's on the register but not which one. Doesn't say what the proper names of her dogs are. Ie is there a "prefix".

    I would phone up dogs west and check that she really is on the register before going near the place, but there a whole lot of things about her website that would put me off buying anything from her if I wanted an ANKC purebred Pom.
