  • Overview

  • Tiny, bright-eyed, and spunky, the adorable Pomeranian is endless curious, and more than happy to be the cutest thing in your world. One of the most popular breeds in the world, Pomeranians are surprisingly adaptable and perfectly suited for urban living.

    In fact, a Pomeranian is the ideal canine companion for the urban dweller. They don’t need much room to exercise and are more than content to live in a small apartment. Which isn’t to say that your Pomeranian won't love the outdoors. This sled dog turned lap dog loves long walks, chasing leaves and playing with other small dogs.

    Pomeranians are also surprisingly athletic, agile, and intelligent. When not pining for their owner's attention, Pomeranians can be found trotting around the house on a special canine mission or performing as a top athlete on the agility course and in and winning best-in-show competitions.

    Pomeranians have an iconically beautiful, albeit profuse double coat that needs lots and lots of brushing but is otherwise easy to care for. Poms also bark…. A lot and can be a challenge to housetrain. Like most small breeds, however, with patience, consistency and lots of loving care and attention, your Pomeranian will quickly become your cutest friend, and most loyal companion.

    The American Eskimo Dog, affectionately called the “Eskie,” is neither American nor Eskimo – they descended from the German Spitz and were brought to America by European immigrants. In the 1930’s, they were trained by the circus to walk tight-ropes and sold as pets after the shows. Today, these dogs are well known for their agility and intelligence, and make great family pets. They come in three different varieties (toy, miniature and standard) and are easily adaptable to any living space.

  • Japanese Spitz

    Just like the name says, this breed was created in Japan between 1920 and 1930 by crossing other spitz breeds. Japanese Spitz’s appearance is very similar to the Pomeranian; however, this breed has a thick and white off-standing coat. Usually, Japanese Spitz doesn’t enjoy the company of other dogs, so if you have other pets at home, it’s very important to socialize them at their very young ages. However, they are great companion animals; they love to attract their human’s attention. This breed is full of energy, active, and playful. Also, they will want to run and play outside a lot. The average weight of this breed is 10 to 20 pounds.
