He is currently 5 months as of today. He has lost half his puppy fur and his adult coat is coming in. Where it is coming in there seems to be no undercoat what so ever. (As you know, pomeranians have two coats. An outercoat and an undercoat) All he has where his new fur is comming in is the outer coat.
Does that undercoat come in later? Or Will he be one of those flat coated pomeranians?
hello I have 3 of these wonderful dogs. I have one that looks almost like yours her name is hayleigh unfortunatly he may just going to have thinner hair my hayleigh does compared to the other two and her parents had real thick coats as do my other two but I will say one thing shes alot easier to groom and in my eyes just as beautiful. So unless you wanted to breed her dont worry about it dogs like people come in all forms I would advise against breeding because evidently there is a flaw that could be passed on but I think he's very sweet looking and real pretty
I have Shelties not Poms - but there are a lot of breed similarities (most people don't know that the Sheltie breed has as much Pomeranian influence as it does Collie influence)...
Every puppy and line is different (usually). Some coat up quickly. Others can take more than a year. He's too young to worry about it yet. :) The only comment I would make would be : Has he been wormed lately or hd a fecal panel checked? Worms/parasites can affect how the coat comes in. I recommend with any puppy, because they can pick stuff up really easily until their immune systems are fully developed, that you do periodic worming through the first 9-12 months. I like Panacur-C for a multi wormer (I usually do a 5 day dose and then repeat 2 weeks later). But talk with your vet if he hasn't been wormed for several weeks/months.
Your pup is just beautiful. Don't worry, he's only going through the normal changes, that is from puppy coat to adult coat. He looks as though he is going to have a nice, plush coat. All longhaired dogs go through that stage.
Oh no don't you worry about it! He looks completely normal for the stage he is in right now. Over the next two-three months is when you will see the most change. By 8ish months he should have what i call a half coat. He'll be fluffy enough to pass for a pom again LoL but not in real full adult coat yet either. I see he is an orange sable too and you may notice that alot of the sabling will disappear, but it will come back too!
