Puffy Pomeranians A Breed Guide
Pomeranians can look more like animated puff balls than dogs sometimes, and it is this adorable appearance that their owners love. Beneath that impressive cloud of fur, these petite canines are lively, affectionate companions. Learn more about the breed to help you decide if you’d like to find a Pom of your own.
 
From Sled Dog to Artistic Muse
 
Today, the Pomeranian is one of the most recognizable toy dogs with its veritable mane of fur and vibrant personality. Though diminutive in stature, these dogs are actually descended from larger sled dogs. The breed was eventually developed in an area of Germany and Poland known as Pomerania, according to The Spruce Pets.
 
Poms have popped up throughout history alongside of some very famous owners. The composers Mozart dedicated an aria to his Pomeranian, and Michelangelo’s Pom kept him company has he painted the Sistine Chapel, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). Queen Victory was a fan of the breed, sparking a love for them among royalty.
 
Toy Proportions
 
Pomeranians are a handful – literally. These dogs weigh only three to seven pounds and stand about half a foot from the ground, according to the AKC. These petite pups, faithful companions to their owners, live 12 to 16 years, according to the AKC.

Caring for the Pomeranian Coat
 
Pomeranians have a fluffy double coat that requires regular care to keep it tangle-free and healthy. The orange Pom coat that almost looks like a lion’s mane might be what you most associate with the breed, but their coats can also be black, brown, sable, cream, and blue, according to The Spruce Pets.
 
Pom owners will need to run a brush through their dog’s coat at least once a week. Many owners turn to a professional groomer for help bathing and trimming.

The Pom Personality
 
Though small in stature, Pomeranians are known for their feisty and active natures. Most Poms don’t mind announcing their presence and standing toe to toe with dogs many times their size. While big at heart, these dogs are still small. Keep a close eye on them around other dogs to ensure yours is safe. Poms may also use their small size to their advantage and try their paw at escape.
 
Pomeranians are one of the most popular toy breeds for a reason. They delight owners with their charming and lovable personalities. If you are interested in adopting a Pom, you can check local rescue organizations or do your homework to find a responsible breeder.
