History

The smallest Spitz-type breed and a descendant of sled dogs of Iceland and Lapland, the German Zwergspitz, or Pomeranian as we know him, wasn’t always tiny. In the 18th century, the breed weighed around 30 lb. When Queen Victoria took an interest in the breed, however, she preferred smaller specimens, so breeders soon produced dogs weighing closer to 12 lb. Other famous owners of the breed include Marie Antoinette and Amadeus Mozart. Modern breeders have reduced the average size of the breed to around 5 lb. The Pomeranian remains a highly popular toy breed, well loved for his foxy face and fluffy coat. He makes a wonderful lapdog and a loving companion.

Personality

A true feisty Spitz in temperament, the Pomeranian is an alert intelligent dog who believes he is as large as his ancestors were. A natural watchdog, he is suspicious of strangers and will let you know if he believes something is not quite right. The Pomeranian wants to be involved in all aspects of life, though is not clingy. His intelligence and willingness to please make him easy to train. Pomeranians love to learn tricks and do well in obedience, rally and agility.
