DOG BREED DESCRIPTION:
Pomeranians, or Poms, are Toy breeds from the Spitz family that originally descended from Icelandic sled dogs. They became popularized when Queen Victoria fell in love with the breed while holidaying in Florence. After her trip she actively developed the Pomeranian to its current diminutive size back in England.
Pomeranians come in a variety of colours and have a soft, fluffy undercoat with a long, straight overcoat, which requires daily brushing. One must also be careful with this breed’s knees and hips which are prone to injury. Pomeranians can make great companions and stellar show dogs with proper training. Their outgoing, cheerful and affectionate personalities combined with natural skill at agility and to learn tricks can make this breed a star performer. Although, they tend to be quite vocal. Pet families should be careful with Poms around young children to make sure play isn’t too rough.
Proper socialization and training makes the Pom a suitable family dog.
More about Pomeranian Dog Breed:
“They are fun loving and a very outgoing breed. They love to say Hi to anyone. Poms also come in many colors which makes each one very special in their own way. Â Each pom is different in may ways. But I have found they are also very easy to train. Catching on to things very fast. Sometimes too smart for their own good. The only down fall I have found in the breed is that their coat has to be brushed a lot. It can mat very fast and easily. Â Over all they are a awesome dog as long as you can deal with all the hair.” -Â Michele
