Pomeranian Breed Information:
The Pomeranian is a descendant of the Spitz family of sled dogs used in Iceland. The Pomeranian was named after the historical region of Pomerania (which is now present day Germany and Poland), where they were bred down to their small size. In their larger form, the Pomeranian weighed as much as 30 lbs. and served as a sheep herder. Through selective breeding, breeders in Pomerania were able to breed the Pomeranian down to around 20 lbs. The Pomeranian was first brought to England by Queen Charlotte in the late 17th century, but didn't become popular until Queen Victoria returned home from Italy with an unusually small one named Marco in 1888. Marco grew to just 12 lbs. Because Queen Victoria was a very popular monarch, the Pomeranian's popularity grew... as well as the desire for the smaller size. Queen Victoria became such a fancier of the breed, that she established her own kennel for their breeding in the late 1800's. Through selective breeding over the years, Pomeranians have been bred down to a mere 7 lbs. or less! Other famous owners of Pomeranians include Marie Antoinette, Mozart, Michaelangelo, and Martin Luther. Today, the Pomeranian is a coveted companion and beautiful show dog.The Pomeranian is lively, intelligent, and eager to learn. They are bold, willful, and loyal to their owners. Most Pomeranians tend to be leery of strangers, and will bark excessively at people they've never met before. Pomeranians generally get along well with other animals. They are very independent, alert, curious, and proud. If spoiled or improperly trained, the Pomeranian may become demanding and willful. They are docile, even-tempered, and affectionate, and they appeal to many people who normally don’t care for toy dogs!
