The Pomeranian is a lovable, compact, fluffy Spitz breed that is just so cute. It's just so hard to go without 10 seconds without looking at a Pomeranian and fall for it like a ton of bricks. But originally, these weren't pocket pooches. They were larger in size at first, and during that time, Pomeranians were herding dogs, rounding up herds of cattle and other livestock. In Pomerania, the breed was bred to be a smaller companion dog. English Queen Victoria fell in love with the Pomeranian, and the popularity of the breed kept expanding.
A long, double-layered coat covers the Pomeranian's body shape, but that makes them pretty cute. They have compact muzzles, black eyes, and small, alert ears. Pomeranians come from the Spitz-type dog family, and that includes the Chow Chow, Husky, Alaskan Malamute, Hokkaido, Akita, Japanese Spitz, German Spitz, Eurasian, Keeshond, German Wolfspitz and other dog breeds.
These dogs may look cute but they'll take advantage of that, and think that you can be easily outsmarted. They are independent, and do what they want to do. And they need a lot of grooming. If you can't handle high grooming bills than you shouldn't have a Pomeranian. Pomeranians can overheat easily and fair best in colder climates. But they do make good family dogs. If you understand the Pomeranian, than the Pomeranian will understand you.
