When does a pomeranian go into heat her first time?

On average, about 6 months old. It's best to get her spayed before her first heat; each heat increases chance for mammary cancer.

Carina is right.
Also, spaying before the first heat eliminates her chances of getting pyometra - a very serious infection of the uterus that requires emergency surgery and can result in death.
