Wolf Sable Pomeranians can live for 12 to 16 years. This range is common to all, if not most, Pomeranians and the wolf sable variety is not an exception.
This is because the variation is only in terms of the coat color and patterns and has no identified direct effect on the Pom’s health.
In addition to having the same lifespan as other Pomeranians, Wolf Sable Poms also suffer from the same common health conditions. They include:
Patella luxation in Wolf Sable Pomeranians occurs when the knee joint becomes loose and unstable. In addition to the gait abnormalities arising from this condition, patella luxation could also predispose the Wolf Sable Pomeranian to knee injuries, as the joint stability is compromised.
Wolf Sable Pomeranians can have heart failure either due to congenital conditions when they are puppies or due to other cardiac pathologies later on in the dog’s life.
One of the most common causes of this heart failure is the congenital heart disease known as patent ductus arteriosus.
Some Wolf Sable Pomeranians could also inherit seizure disorders which then afflict them for the rest of their lives. The seizures may have discernable triggers or may occur spontaneously.
Whatever the case, you need to take good care of your Wolf Sable Pomeranian in terms of healthcare, monitoring at home, and puppy proofing your home to make it safer for your dog.
Hypothyroidism is an endocrine disorder common in Wolf Sable Pomeranians and is characterized by low levels of thyroid hormones.
Hypothyroidism affects a number of processes in the dog’s body and results in a number of symptoms ranging from hair loss and poor coat health to excessive weight gain.
