Ancestry plays a large part in this small breed's big personality. As descendants of larger breeds including Siberian Huskies, among others, Pomeranians originally weighed in at 30 pounds and were always white. Today, Pomeranians are seen in a variety of colors and make excellent lap dogs, weighing in at 3 to 7 pounds. Known for having a lot of energy, Pomeranians require daily exercise and playtime to stay happy and entertained. These little guys are known for having a lot to bark about, so pet owners looking for a quiet companion might want to opt for a different breed.
Pomeranians make excellent companions for all households. Due to the size and frame of Pomeranians, it's important to watch this breed around young children to ensure they are handled properly. Owners of this energetic breed must be able to provide time for daily exercise and playtime. Their pocket-size frames make Pomeranians very suitable for apartment dwellers provided they can get their pets out for frequent walks. Potential owners should be ready to love being surrounded by luscious locks of Pomeranian fur, as this breed is very prone to shedding.
The adorable Pom knows its own cuteness and demands constant pampering and attention, but one look at that face and you'll be happy to oblige. These petite partners are known for big, full and spunky hair, fit to match their equally boisterous personalities. Pampering a Pomeranian with weekly brushings and frequent trips to the groomer is a must to keep them happy. This happy-go-lucky pup loves socializing as much as she loves curling up on a warm lap, and a day of play and cuddles would make for time well spent.
