The Pomeranian dog is the smallest member of the Spitz dog family. They are descended from ancient sled dogs of the far northern European countries. It got its name from that region on the Baltic sea, but only after it arrived in England.
The miniature toy Pomeranian dog is a true Spitz breed. Early specimens weighed as much as thirty pounds.
In 1888 the Pom became a favorite with Queen Victoria, who preferred the smaller sizes of the day, in the 12 to 18 pound range and as a result of this royal favor, its popularity grew, and miniaturization continued still further.
Before long the Pomeranian dog was brought to North America and in 1900 it was granted official recognition in Canada and the US.
Pomeranian dogs are shown in a wide variety of colors from red, orange, cream, sable, black, brown, and blue. All patterns and variations are allowed and are to be judged equally.

The Pomeranian dog, or Pom dog exhibits great intelligence with his fox-like expression, and is lively, outgoing and alert, even cocky in character and conduct. Poms are usually reserved towards strangers and some are aggressive towards other dogs. Some can be quite vocal. A Pomeranian puppy is ready and eager for basic training. Grooming should start early in life for a Pomeranian puppy and continue on a twice weekly basis or more frequent when shedding. His plentiful, colorful double coat stands off from the body and it should have some gentle brushing daily to keep it mat free. Although a small dog breed, the Pomeranian is an excellent watchdog and an ideal house pet for adults. They are very affectionate dogs and they love to be pampered.
