We are a very small
hobby breeder located in Southwestern Ontario Canada.
Breeding perhaps one, maybe two litters in any given
year, we at times may have a puppy for you to make part
of your family.
Our journey in the
world of the "Toys" began with a Yorkshire terrier puppy
in 1988. That was the beginning of many years of joy,
sadness, ups and downs. We added a little Pomeranian
girl to our family in November of 1997 and have grown to
just over a dozen Pomeranians at the present time. After
our first two litters, I was feeling very good about
breeding. The first litter comprised of two male
puppies who were beautiful - and finished their Canadian
Championships very quickly. The next litter was a
little girl, again finishing her championship quickly.
Then came my jolt back to reality. A little girl was
the third litter and she lived only a very few hours.
How very tenuous these little lives are. How easily
they are given to us - only to be taken just as quickly.
But the joy of living with these little treasures far
outweighs any sadness.

Our Poms are all
home-raised, underfoot, and amongst people and noise. We
make an attempt to basically train all of them, although
some are considerably easier to train than others.
Puppies that leave Pondside will always have a home to
come back to if necessary. I require a contract be
signed that includes the fact that I have first right of
refusal should any puppy or adult need to be re-homed.
We actively show our
Pomeranians in conformation, however, the performance
events are our number one priority. If the Poms are
having fun, then it is fun for us too. At Pondside
Pomeranians we breed to the Standard set out by the
Canadian Kennel Club, which is established by the
Pomeranian Club of Canada, the National Breed Club and
strive to breed quality not quantity.
Enjoy your visit to Pondside.
