The Pomeranian was most likely bred down from its sled dog ancestors in the Pomerania region of Germany & is the smallest member of the Spitz family. Originally larger in size & only white or gray, the Pom is now found in many colors with solid, parti, & merle coat colorations and mostly small size. The Pom is a true adventurer & will be found in the middle of any activity. He is known for his bold & playful personality & will need to be trained to restrain his bark.
With his double type coat, the Pomeranian requires a lot of brushing & a good groomer. The Pom can live 12-14 years when well cared for.
