Pomeranian

 

 

Pomeranians speak only to Poodles
 and Poodles speak only to God.

Named for Pomerania in Germany, the Pomeranian is said to have descended from larger sled dogs from the Arctic. 

In fact, the Pom first came to public attention as a much larger dog, weighing in at about 30 pounds. 

English breeders developed the miniaturized version of the Pomeranian that is so popular today. 

The Pom is a devoted companion and lap dog.

As the smallest member of the Spitz family of dogs, the Pomeranian stands just 11 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs between three and seven pounds. His outer coat is thick, harsh, and stands out from his body. Daily grooming is necessary to keep it tangle-free. His coat comes in a variety of colours and colour combinations. The Pom has a pointed little face, and carries his plumed tail curled up over his back.

An alert, active, and lively little dog, the Pomeranian makes a good watchdog. He is also friendly, outgoing, and playful. He enjoys the company of other pets and will tolerate children provided they are not too rough with him. The Pom will soak up all the pampering and petting you can dish out!

 Principally bred to be a companion, the Pomeranian makes a great house or apartment pet as he fits well into the smallest accommodation. An affectionate and loyal dog, he makes an excellent companion for less active seniors as he requires minimal exercise.
