It’s a female boxer so I’m not sure if I should get a male or female pomeranian. Also will these two dogs get along although their size? And if you know anything about training a pomeranian or if they’re hard dogs please tell me.
It really depends on the dog whether or not size or gender are an issue.
How well socialized is your boxer? If you’re bringing in the Pom as a pup, he or she will adjust, but your Boxer may be set in her ways a bit already. Take your boxer to the dogpark or training classes and see how she reacts to small dogs to get a better idea.
I’ve always been told that mixed gender get along better than two females, however if both are spayed or neutered it shouldn’t be a big deal if your heart is set on another female. If your boxer is not spayed yet, you should have it done ASAP to avoid aggressive or overly dominant behavior around the new dog.
The only cautionary tale about big and small dogs is fear of injury. It’s like turning a Clydesdale and a Shetland pony out together – IF (and that’s an "if" not a "will") things get bad, the little guy could get seriously injured before anyone can intervene. Most of the time animals can get along by displays of force instead of actual contact, but if it goes past showing off, the Pom would be a severe disadvantage. As far as playfulness goes, again the little dog could get accidentally injured. Boxers (as I’m sure you know) are not only large, but particularly boisterous. This could mean minor injuries (sprains, etc) for your pom from getting stepped on or run over.
Since your boxer is young, she would probably adjust fine unless she is very unsocial. However, be prepared for the headache that is life when you have two young dogs in the household I might wait until your dog is about 8 months and hits "teenagehood" before you decide if you have the time, energy, and money for two youngsters.
Just my 2 cents. I wouldn’t bring another dog in with a 6 month old dog right now because there is no way I would have the time and energy for it, but if you’re up to it then I’m sure lots of people are in your situation and have two wonderful dogs and a happy home
As far as Poms go…. They are cuddly yappers. They are very barky, so be prepared to be patient and not give your Pom anything when he or she barks at you to prevent it from getting out of hand. Otherwise, they are smart and attentive – which makes them quick learners. Here’s the AKC info on them: http://www.akc.org/breeds/pomeranian/index.cfm
