About the Breed

The Pomeranian is a small, lively, and playful dog breed. With its fox-like features and fluffy coat, they make an ideal companion for those looking for a loyal best friend. The Pomeranian is a friendly, intelligent breed that loves to be around their family. History The Pomeranian originated in the area of Germany and Poland known as Pomerania. They were developed by breeding large sled dogs with smaller spitz-type breeds such as the Keeshond and German Spitz. The result was a smaller version of the larger sled dog, with its trademark thick double coat of fur. The breed was first introduced to England in 1888 by Queen Victoria who owned several Pomeranians. It quickly became one of the most popular breeds in Europe and America thereafter. Temperament Pomeranians are known for their friendly personalities and loyalty to their owners. They love being around people, making them an ideal family pet or single companion if given enough time and attention from their owners. They are active animals that enjoy playing games indoors or outdoors as well as going for walks or trips to the park or beach with their owners. They can also be quite vocal when excited or displeased which makes them great watchdogs! Despite this active nature, they are also content cuddling up on your lap at home so they can be both playful and cuddly companions!
