Elegant Male Pomeranian Names
Without a doubt, the Pomeranian has a charmed past.
The breed descends from large working dogs from the Arctic regions which eventually made their way to Germany and Poland. Unfortunately, there isn’t much documentation, but researchers believe breeding in the Pomerania region near the Baltic seas led to the original Pomeranian type of dog.
So how did this breed go from a working dog to status symbol?
The answer is simple: In 1767, Queen Charlotte, Queen-consort of King George III of England, brought two Pomeranians to England.
Her granddaughter, Queen Victoria, also loved the Pomeranian and established a large breeding kennel. The royal family’s love of the breed increased the popularity of Pomeranians and cemented its status as a symbol of wealth and prominence.
In fact, other royals who owned Pomeranians at this time included Joséphine de Beauharnais (wife of Napoleon I of France) and King George IV of England.
