While Pomeranians are very small dogs, they are known for their big dog personalities! These fluffy, affectionate dogs are also very athletic and intelligent, and excel at agility and obedience. They love to be pampered and crave attention from their families (and will let you know when they want more!). Pomeranians are confident and bold dogs. They are also fairly active dogs and love to go on walks or have play time. Pomeranians typically weigh about 4-7 lbs.
This cute, pint-sized pup is also multi-talented. Many Poms are trained in obedience, agility, tracking, and flyball, while others have been made excellent hearing assistance and therapy dogs.
The origins of this delightfully foxy breed come from the ancient Spitz sled dogs of the province of Pomerania, a region that now makes up modern-day Germany and Poland.
