   History:   The reduction in size of these once-large dogs began in Pomerania in Eastern Europe, hence their name.  Its ancestors are thought to include the Samoyed, Norwegian Elkhound, Chow Chow, and Arctic dogs of the spitz family.  The popularity of small dogs in eighteenth-century England promoted breeding of small dogs, and this was modified from twenty-eight pounds to four pounds. The Pomeranian was much loved by Queen Victoria. In 1900, it was officially recognized in the United States.

    Body:    The tiny Pomeranian has a short body; a vack with a level top line; a deep and wide chest; a V-shaped head; a wide slightly prominent forehead; dark almond eyes; prick ears; a clearly difined stop; a tight muzzle; and high-set tail that turns over back.  It is double coated. The outer coat is harsh, the undercoat is soft and fluffy. The legs and tail are richly feathered, and the chest is frilled. Coloring includes all single colors such as black, brown, chocolate, red, orange, cream, and white. Shading of coat color with sable or black is permissible. The nose is black.

    Character: Intelligent, agile, cheerful, and friendly, the Pomeranian is also curious, slightly noisy, and easily excited. Despite its size it is a brave watchdog. Proud but obedient to its master, this is a good companion dog who adjusts to any enviroment and/or weather.

    Care: Show dogs require a great amount of care. Daily brushing keeps the coat long and plentiful. Sprinkle a small amount of baby powder on the coat and spray it a little at a time before brushing. During summer shedding, shampooing is best avoided to keep the coat undamaged. Look after the teeth weekly and the eyes daily.

    Exercise: This breed requires a minimum amount of exercise.

    Training: This breed is patient, making it easy to train.

    Puppies: There are one to three puppies in a litter. Their coat colors change before they mature at one to 1 1/2 years of age. Full coats grow in at age two.
