A famous toy breed that sprang from larger Spitz breeds is the pomeranian. In the 17th century, Queen Victoria's affection for them contributed to their rise in popularity.
When Princess Sophie Charlotte brought her dogs to England in 1761, they brought Pomeranians with them. Later, Queen Victoria popularised the breed and engaged in its own breeding, making it the preferred canine of both royalty and commoners.
Warm and affectionate with people, but unsuitable for young children or being left alone for extended periods of time owing to separation anxiety and the possibility of accidents.
From Michelangelo and Martin Luther to Keanu Reeves and Hillary Duff, many historical celebrities have adored pomeranians. When Newton's dog nibbled on his writings, Mozart composed an aria in his honour.

Not the best guard dogs, although quick to bark Known to be stubborn during training High-maintenance in their desire for love and grooming
Due to their double coat, poms require frequent maintenance and should be brushed at least twice per week. They shed somewhat periodically and more while under stress or in hot weather.
Allergies, vision issues, hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, and epilepsy can affect pomeranians. Early intervention is crucial. Select a noble ancestry.
Poms are intelligent, gregarious dogs who gain from early socialisation. Despite having small-dog syndrome, they make excellent watchdogs.
Pomeranians are versatile and suitable for homes with a yard or flats. They require companionship, quick strolls, and playing. Observe children as they play. In high temperatures, not good.
