Recently, we have been getting a lot of requests from numerous dog lovers about the Pomeranian breed; where to get it, and how much it costs? So, we decided to put all the information down in one article to answer all your cost-related queries.
Basically, the cost of a Pomeranian puppy differs depending upon various factors – for example the location that you are residing and planning to get a puppy from, the age of the puppy, breed (pure or mix), fur color, origin, and health. Pomeranian puppy or dog price in India starts from Rs. 3000 and go up to Rs. 75,000 based on the factors we mentioned below.
Top 4 factors on which the cost of a Pomeranian puppy depends:
India is a big country and the pomeranian puppy costs vary all across the states and cities. It is hard to pin down a fixed cost per state; however, a Pomeranian will cost a minimum of Rs. 3000, anywhere you go in the country. The cost fluctuates as per the breeder’s location or the origin of the puppy.
For example, if you live in Mumbai and you want a puppy from a breeder in Delhi, it is going to cost you higher. Buying a puppy locally is less expensive as compared to getting a puppy from an out-of-state breeder.
It greatly affects the price of a pomeranian dog. The correct age to sell a puppy is between 6 – 8 weeks. If a breeder is selling a puppy before that age, you must report it to concerned authorities or bring the matter in front of dog welfare organizations. The puppy must be allowed to thrive in the litter for at least 6 weeks.
After that, they can be moved to their new homes. You should note that generally, a 6-8 weeks old puppy will cost higher as there is an increased demand for puppies rather than a bit older dogs. People prefer to get puppies as they are easy to train and socialize with as compared to older dogs. Many people also like the idea of their Pomeranian puppy growing up in their family.
#3. Breed (Pure or Mix)
One of the major factors that affect the cost of a pomeranian puppy is its breed. A purebred pomeranian will be higher in cost as compared to a mixed breed. Why people choose pure breed pomeranian? The reason is the lesser health problems. The chances of a puppy developing hereditary diseases are lesser in purebred puppies and usually result in a longer life span, due to better genetics. It is believed that purebred puppies get less sick and have fewer health problems.
#4. A Registered puppy
- The cost will be high if the puppy is registered with kennel club of India (KCI).
- The cost will higher if the puppies from the previous litter have been performing well in national shows.
- If the parents of the puppy show in registration papers as Champion breeds then the cost will be higher.

Lastly, we would suggest you go for older pomeranian puppies and start thinking about adoption.
