Pomeranian Information

Pomeranian breedSpritely, spirited and sometimes cocky, the Pomeranian packs a lot of personality into his compact little body. He is the 20th most popular dog in the United States, and it’s not hard to see why with his adorable fox-like face and fluffy, cuddly fur.

The Pomeranian descends from the Spitz family of dogs and gets his name from the historical region of Pomerania, near present day Germany and Poland. With the right training, the Pomeranian can be an excellent family dog. You just have to let him know who is the boss!
