Pomeranian

While browsing the video library on Puppytoob.com, I came across Pomeranian puppies having playtime. I linked my daughter, Mother, my two best friends and my niece to watch the video. I was melting. Though I can usually call a breed when I see one (and I’m even mastering mixed breeds), I couldn’t figure out what kind of puppy this was. It looked like a bear mixed with a chow; Or was it a Pom Pom mixed with a chow? Or was it a pom pom mixed with my heart melting all over the screen. Low and behold, I found my answer-a Pomeranian! My inquisitive mind wandered and I wanted to know more about this gorgeous breed.

  • History

Pomerania, an area around Germany and Poland is how the Pomeranian earned its name. Though the Pomeranians we see today are smaller in size, the original Pomeranians were larger-weighing nearly thirty pounds. Pomeranians were farmers! Yes, it is true; Pomeranians worked as sheep herders. Nearly every dog originated from working in a profession (as some still do), and I thought it was wild that these dogs assisted sheep farmers.The original Pomeranians were much larger, weighing up to 30 pounds and worked as sheep herders. How the Pomeranians became smaller in size is fascinating; in 1888 Queen Victoria started showing the animals and breeding them down in size! Wow! That same year the AKC recognized Pomeranians as a breed. It all began with royalty!

  •  That Beautiful Look!

The pom Pom is considered a small toy breed. The head and body are evenly proportioned, with a tail that lies over the back. The Poms coat is thick on the outside, while the inner coat is soft and short. The Pom comes in all sorts of colors; orange, white, red, brown,, black, black and tan, orange sable, and multi-colored. Pom pups remind me of Ewok. Though I have met plenty of Poms, I have seen a Pom puppy! I have four words; love-at-first-sight! 

  • “Pom Pom” Personality

The Pomeranian is an energetic breed with a ton of pride. The Pomeranian is a truly loyal breed, and like most dogs recognizes and adores its owner. The Pomeranian is an independent bring, and though they love their owners they are usually not clingy. The Pomeranian may have issues with dog food as they are known to be a bit picky (no biggie, I have a basset hound…picky). The breed has a docile temper, with a likeness towards kids. Pomeranians are known to get along with other breeds, enjoying other dog’s while being quite inquisitive. (This breed is starting to sound like me!) Poms are great dogs for teaching tricks and they are known to be quick learners. usually small breeds are difficult to potty train, however Pomeranians are usually good with the task at hand.

Pomeranians are certainly beautiful dogs. Based on the facts, it seems as if this breed would make a perfect companion and best friend. These dogs are known to be appropriate for apartment living. With plenty of walks and love, the Pom Pom
