I am just about to get a Pomeranian and when I was researching the breed, I came across hair loss and or black skin disease as something that can happen to them.
The dog I am considering comes from a recommended breeder who has pedigree info on both parents and is AKC registered. There is no history of the parents with hair loss or the disease. She has told me that she would not breed a dog that has a potential problem and I trust her.
I am considering getting a male that will be cream and light orange.
My questions are how common is this problem and since there is no history of this in the parents is the chance of him getting it less?
Are there any ways to help prevent him from getting this? Anything will help.
