The Pomeranian ( also known as the Pom) originated from Pomerania (which is now Poland and Germany) and weighed almost 30 pounds. He was a great sheep herder at that time.
In 1870 he became better known when the English Kennel Club recognized this Spitz dog. Queen Victoria fell in love with the Pom dog while visiting Florence, Italy and brought one back with her, boosting his popularity immensely.
Today’s Pomeranian is an extroverted, cocky, intelligent dog. He’s a great show dog and companion. His coat’s color can be almost any color and pattern but the most common colors are red and orange.
With the right training, he can be a great family dog because he loves to please. He needs lots of attention but not much exercise.
His double thick coat must be brushed regularly. He stands at 8 – 11 inches in height and weighs 3 – 7 pounds.
