Being Bella Pomeranian: Featured Dog in PetMeds Commercial

Bella is the featured dog in the PetMeds TV Commercial - shown here with her famous blankies

Hi there! I am Bella Pomeranian, the star of the PetMeds TV commercial.  If you’ve wondered where I came from and what kind of life I have then please read on, there is so much I have to share!

First, let me say that I am a very fortunate pup.  I have a home and pawrents that look out for my care;  I come from some fairly blue Pomeranian blood with a sire who was an international champion show dog.  But the show ring was not to be in my future, no, my future turned out to be at the other end of the spectrum:  Rescue.   The way it happened is also related to how I got to where I am today. My family suffered a huge loss, the passing of another pet in the family.   First there was the grief, and then the desire to adopt another dog.  After searching on the internet, and then on Facebook, my pawrents turned to Southern California Pomeranian Rescue and adopted Buddy.  Here is the picture of my pawrents, me and Buddy at that first Christmas.

Before I was a PetMeds TV Commercial star, most of my furrends knew me as Bella as in “Bella Blankies” on Facebook.   Mommy started by pledging 20 fleece blankets as a way to help SCPR raise money to help pay to transport 11 Pomeranians from an Iowa puppymill to California.  The Poms were being “retired” from their life as breeding stock, and SCPR wanted to help them.  Mommy’s blankies were a hit and the donations came quickly.  Mommy made more and they were dubbed “Bella Blankies.”   Mommy has now made more than 475 Bella Blankies, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Rescue.   I like to pose with the Blankies Mommy makes too. The first photo abpve is one of Mommy’s favorite pictures of me with a Valentine Blankie from last year. You can also see me in action with the blankies in the video below.

I get to go lots of places, too!  Mommy takes me with her to all of the adoption events in Southern California that she goes to, and I get to meet lots of people.  After being on TV I get recognized nearly everywhere we go and people like to take my picture.  Sometimes people will say, “She looks just like the dog in the PetMeds TV commercial!”  and Mommy just puffs up with a big grin and replies “She IS the dog in the commercial!”

I’ll be sharing a weekly blog post about my life and adventures, so please ask me questions (about anything) and I will answer!

    Oh, Robert, no! Pomeranians come in almost every color and every size. The breed standard in the US is 4-7lbs and we are classed as Toy Dogs. In Europe, we are known as Spitz and we can be as much as 30lbs and were originally bred as Working Dogs. It was Queen Victoria that started the Pomeranian as we know it today, bred down to be lap dogs for the rich!
    Love, Bella

  7. I lost my best friend Babe with an unknown desease about two years ago and I still cannot look at another like her without crying, I saw Bella on the commercial and I told my husband that I have to find one like her. I would love to get a female. My husband and I are over 70 and would love to cuddle and take that cutie every where we go with us. I live in Eugene, OR. Is there some where I could look into getting one near here?

    Jan, since I am a Pombassador of a pom rescue here in Southern California, I always suggestion adoption over purchasing. To adopt, you can go to where you can search based on the breed that you want and within your zip code. Have patience.
    Love, Bella

    We also know a Pomeranian breeder in Eugene OR: Skyline Poms. Their web address is An alternative to a puppy would be to consider taking a retired show dog. Talk to Bini at Skyline.

  10. Bella,
    You are so adorable! My family and I are wanting to rescue a Pom. We had one and she has gone to be with the Lord. We live in Arkansas can you send us I. a direction for a Pom rescue?
    Thank you

    Trish, you can search on for Pomeranians in shelters or in rescues based on your zip code. If you don’t find one right away, keep looking because they get adopted but new ones get added. Thank you for wanting to rescue! I hope you find the Pommie of your dreams.
    Love, Bella

  12. Does Bella do guest appearances at charity events, say like a humane society?

  13. Bella PomeranianJune 21, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    I live in Southern California and am happy to make appearances that support animal rescue and charity causes that are local to me! Love, Bella

  14. Where would I begin to look for a dog like Bella. She is just the type and size dog that would fit into my life style.

  15. Hi Grace! We always recommend adoption from a shelter or a rescue, however, you may have to wait a little while. Little teeny 4-5 lb dogs like me rarely end up in rescue. You can begin your search at where you can narrow the search down to the type of dog, sex, and breed, and search based on your zip code as well. Love, Bella

  16. I am Teddi Bear’s mummy and MIL to Bella and I am so thankful that we have this wonderful video to remember Bella’s beautiful smile and her spunky personality!
    Like Teddi, I will \love you forever\ Bella <3
