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.
