There are a handful of color variations in Pomeranians. And the most common and popular skin color is white. But there are some rare color variations with higher market demand. For example, even black Pomeranians are rare, they are the second most popular color variation among people.

How many Pomeranian colors are there?

AKC (American Kennel Club) has classified 22 types of Pomeranians by considering the colors and markings. You may wonder, how the hell there can be 22 colors. This is because they have divided each color by considering their markings. Here is the list of 22 types of Pomeranians and their colors.
