History of the Pomeranian Dog

Now, do you want to know where Pomeranians come from? Many ages ago, in a land bordering Poland, Germany and the Baltic Sea, there was a place called Pomerania.

Although it is still sometimes referred to today as a localized region in Poland, it is technically a historical region.

Other interesting facts about its appearance

  • The Pomeranian has a luxurious fluffy coat on the neck and chest. Their tails are very fluffy, feathered and curled over their backs like a fan. Its coat consists of a thick outer coat and a soft, silky undercoat.
  • Their coat is easy to maintain as it does not get matted and matted easily like many other long haired dog breeds. All they need is regular brushing of their coat at home, along with an occasional shampoo.
  • Pomeranians have inquisitive, smiling fox faces with triangle-shaped ears.
  • Smaller Pomeranians tend to have shorter, rounder snouts like teddy bears, while larger Pomeranians tend to have longer, more fox-like snouts.
  • Some owners of show dogs crop their ears to change their appearance and make them more pleasing to the eye, in line with show dog standards.
  • In addition to the wide variety of colors these pups come in, they also vary in size, from the diminutive teacup variety, standing at about 7 inches tall and 3 pounds, to the sturdier “throwback” size ” from Pomerania up to 20 pounds.
  • The AKC breed standard dictates that the preferred size for a qualified show dog Pomeranian is 4-6 pounds, while the AKC breed standard is 3-7 pounds.

Pomeranians are small, lively dogs with a sweet and affectionate behavior towards their loved ones. This makes them a wonderful pet and family companion.

Pomeranians in Royalty

We all know about Queen Elizabeth II and her “real” Corgis, but did you know that Pomeranians also got royal treatment and fame too? Prior to the 18th century, these spitz dogs were simply known as «wolf dogs», although they were treated like royalty.

This breed was brought into the royal family by Queen Charlotte in 1761. And when Queen Charlotte married King George III, she brought her pet “wolf” dogs with her. Quickly, they captured the interest (and hearts) of the English nation.
