So you wonder… “What is so special in that toy dog?” so first of all, they are cute as hell. And, Like any other product, it all goes down to supply and demand. Their high demand and the fact the people are willing to pay the price for it set it. As long as they keep buying that price will stay the same. The main reason the supply is so low is that the pregnancy of a pomeranian is very dangerous and not all females can carry it safely.
Their small size is making them vulnerable and they need a good environment and attention. The average litter size of pom pregnancy is between 1-5 puppies which is not a lot. And it takes between 54-70 with an average of 63 days. So You can see why the supply is low. Also, You are probably going to buy them directly from the breeder if you want certificates it will probably cost more.

You can buy cheap dog food and you can buy expensive ones. But don’t expect the total expense to be cheap even with the low quality of supplies.

Yearly physicals, vaccination, flea and tick protection, and supplies. Some products can help you maintain all these like pet insurance. The price of that can be between 35 to 51 per month. With an average of 43$ which means 516$ yearly. I’m sure you can find a cheaper deal. But that is the average. And I do not even start talking about emergency medical care. So to conclude the total cost of pomeranian annual cost is about 520$+ without insurance and 1000$+ with insurance.
