All About Pomeranian Dogs and Puppies
Belonging to a group of dogs, known as the Spitz family, the Pomeranian is a descendant of working sled dogs from Lapland and Iceland. Surprisingly, however, he did not earn his name for the places that he originated but, rather, for the place that he was bred down into a toy size. Pomerania, now known as the present day Germany and Poland, made up the Baltic seas southern coast. It is here that the Pomeranian was bred down from his larger 20-30 pound size, and became the toy variety that we know and love today.
