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.
