The Pomeranian was named after historic Pomerania, now Germany. Originally this Nordic breed weighed 30+ pounds and pulled sleds, and herded sheep. Back in 1870 the breed was recognized by the UKC as the Spitz dog and in 1888 Queen Victoria brought the first specimen to England to be shown. Pomeranians come in a wide variety of colors and patterns but the most popular color is the red. Ranging in weight from 3 to 7 pounds, this breed is as high spirited, loving and loyal as anyone could hope for. The Pomeranian also excels in the show ring, as a therapy dog, and as a beloved companion. The AKC recognized this breed in 1888, in the Toy Group, and it is still a very popular breed today.
