Example of Black Pomeranian puppies. For your viewing pleasure.


Black is a dominant color and is relatively easy to accomplish by breeding a black to any other color, you will most likely have some black offspring. Black to black generally produces all black. As long as BOTH parents do not carry a copy of the dilution gene, black offspring may be produced. Any two colors bred together will produce black, so long as the parents do not both display the same color factor. You can breed blue, lavender, orange and orange sable together and get black. Black will have black nose, paw pads, eye rims and lip rims. Any white found on the chest or paws moves the dog into the mismark category and bred to a parti can produce correct partis. The photo above  shows a mismark black with white on the chest. Some reddening, or "sun burning" of the coat may appear in those dogs which spend time outdoors. The undercoat may be a lighter gray color prior to the first shedding.
