Orange is the most popular of the Pomeranian colors. This hue can range from light to dark. If it’s too deep then it’s considered red (although, this shade is actually more rust than red). If an orange Pomeranian has black strips it’s considered orange brindle. The orange base color with black tips is an orange sable.
True black Poms are rare. They will be pure black and will have no secondary color or markings on their coats. Black skin pigmentation means the nose, lips, paw pads, and eye rims will all be black. If any other color exists they’re considered to be a parti.
A true white Pomeranian will have no lemon or cream patches.
Pomeranians with tan points come in black, brown, and blue. All three base colors will have the same tan marking pattern. They are famously known for their grumpy looks and appearance.

A blue-colored pomeranian is less commonly seen. This is a beautiful color almost a silver color. All true blue Poms will have blue skin; this is what sets them apart from black coats; with blue, the coat may appear black but if the skin pigmentation is blue, the Pom will genetically be blue.
