Is it an ideal family dog?

Grooming and health

The Smooth Pom Terrier requires regular coat care. While the coat from the Miniature Pomeranian is usually long and fluffy, the coat is smooth and short due to the Smooth Pom Terrier. Weekly grooming with a special brush is recommended to remove dead hair and prevent skin irritation. In terms of diet, a balanced and nutritionally complete diet should be followed.

Due to their mixed heritage, Smooth Pom Terriers are generally healthy and hardy. However, they can be susceptible to the health problems common to both parent breeds, including patellar luxation, eye problems or hip dysplasia. Regular vet visits and health checks are essential to ensure the well-being of the animal.

Breeding the Smooth Pom Terrier

When breeding the Smooth Pom Terrier, both parent breeds should be healthy and have well-characterized traits. Breeding clubs place great emphasis on responsible breeding practices to ensure the health and welfare of the puppies. When selecting a puppy, care should always be taken to ensure that the breeding is reputable.

The Smooth Pom Terrier is a small (to medium sized) dog. Despite its small size, it has a robust appearance. He has a well-proportioned build with a round head and large, lively eyes. His ears stand erect, giving him an ever alert appearance.

The Smooth Pom Terrier's coat is short and smooth in most cases , hence the name "Smooth". Variations are possible, however, and some mixed breeds may inherit the fluffy coat of the Miniature Spitz. Coat colors can also vary, but the most common colors are black, white and brown.
