As dogs can be the best human companion, many of us adopt them and there are also some that buy them. There are so many dogs’ races that are sold legally at different prices. The price usually differs based on the breed. Purebred tends to be more expensive than mix breed. One of the famous breed dogs that gain popularity is teacup Pomeranians. Many people want to own this dog either for family pets or for shows since they are very attractive.
The ancestors of this dog were the Wolfspitz or Spitz type that was originally from the Arctic. They are used to be working sled dogs. The word of Pomeranian derived from the area where these dogs were bred to be pets even though they were not from Pomerania. At that time, they were larger than today’s teacup Pomeranian, yet still have the same physical traits resemblance.

It can cost you up to $4000. For a Pomeranian teacup full grown, you can have it for the cheaper price, like, under $500 or you can adopt them from the dog shelter.
The price can also be influenced by their fur color. A Lime or white Pomeranian teacup is usually more popular. However, you can still buy a teacup white Pomeranian for a relatively average price.
