You have decided a Pomeranian Dog just may be the perfect canine companion for your family. You are not alone. This delightful breed has been a favorite of families since the 18th century. It is little wonder Pomeranians (also called “Poms”) consistently rank in the top 20 most favorite breeds among purebred dogs recognized by kennel club registries. This tiny, energetic dog is all heart. Fiercely loyal to its humans the Pomeranian is recognized as being playful, entertaining, loving, outgoing, and very intelligent. Factor in a relatively long lifespan, fun-loving disposition, and an adorable teddy bear appearance and you have a dog that is simply irresistible. Properly trained, a fashionable little Pom will make a polite, pleasing, perfect companion for his entire life.
The Pomeranian, also known as “Pom,” “Pom Pom,” and “Tumbleweed,” is a member of the Spitz family of canines. Cousins of the Pomeranian include; the Akita, Norwegian Elkhound, Welsh Corgi, and various sled dogs such as the Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Husky, Canadian Eskimo Dog, and the Greenland Dog. Spitz Dogs were developed for hunting, herding, and pulling sleds. They were valued as strong, powerful, muscular dogs with a solid, devoted work ethic. Through selective breeding practices, smaller Spitz dogs were cultivated including the Fox Spitz, Welsh Corgi, and Pomeranian.
Pomeranian Dogs are believed to be descendants of the Nordic White Spitz Sled Dog.
Characteristically, Spitz dogs are identified by a long, thick coat (often white), pointed ears, and a sharp muzzle. Many German-speaking countries continue to use the name Zwergspitz (“Dwarf Spitz”) to identify the Pomeranian Dog.
The name “Pomeranian” originates from the Central European region of Germany/Poland known as “Pomerania.” The breed is actually believed to have evolved through various areas of Europe with no relation to Pomerania and is historically identified by several different names. In 1788, naturalist Johann Friedrich Gmelin documented the development of the Spitz Dog in Systema Naturale 13th Edition. There, and in various other periodicals, the breed is identified as “Canis Pomeramus.”
It wasn’t until the marriage of Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and King George III of England that the Pomeranian became a noteworthy breed. Queen Charlotte brought her beloved “Wolf dogs” to England in 1761, and they were firmly established members of the royal court. The new queen’s precious pets were imported from a breeder located in Pomerania, and she called her dogs “Pomeranians.”
Dogs in the 17th century were used as working stock and few if any were housed as pets. Queen Charlotte’s passion for her dogs soon established an acceptable tradition for the country’s royals and commoners alike. Pomeranians (as well as other small dogs) became a familiar fixture in homes. Many paintings from the time feature Pomeranians as treasured family members. They are among the first canine breed developed specifically for human companionship.
In the latter part of the 18th century, the Pomeranian gained international recognition. In 1859, the city of Newcastle held the first English dog show in conjunction with their renowned cattle show. The dog exhibition was a big hit with patrons. Around the beginning of the 1900s dog shows were held in various countries attracting hundreds of entries and paying visitors. The canine competitions became much-anticipated events drawing the attention of the privileged and the poor alike. Dog shows, in general, are credited with making dog fancying fashionable and respectable throughout Europe.
A Pomeranian Fox Dog won the non-sporting, foreign dog class at Manchester’s Belle Vue Zoo show in 1861, and interest in the breed was immediate. By 1963, there were enough Pomeranian Dogs entered in London’s Great International Dog Show to secure a class of their own. The English Kennel Club formally entered the breed in the registry book as “Pomeranian” in 1891.
Queen Charlottes’ granddaughter, Queen Victoria, inherited her grandmother’s affection for the adorable Pomeranian. She brought her first Poms to Windsor Castle in 1888. At one time, during Victoria’s reign, there were 35 Pomeranians in the royal kennel. The Queen’s interest in the breed extended to show competition and a royal breeding program. Queen Victoria was recognized as a top breeder, and she developed a variety of colors of Pomeranian as well promoting the line of “toy” dogs.
Queen Victoria is credited with making the breed extremely popular by displaying her dogs with constant public exposure. She rarely traveled without her Pomeranian pets. Her royal train included a special compartment for the dogs. They even had a security detail assigned to their care and protection. Queen Victoria requested her favorite Pom “Turi” be brought to her deathbed. She died with her faithful companion by her side in 1901.
The concept of companion pet dogs flourished throughout Europe and into the United States. The breed “Pomeranian” was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1888. The first Pomeranian breed show was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City in 1911. It took 100-years for a Pomeranian to win the prestigious “Best in Show” title at the famous Westminster Kennel Club in Madison Square Garden. “Great Elms Prince Charming II” captured the coveted crown in 1988 along with the admiration of some 7,500 spectators in attendance.
Historical records, letters, and paintings are dotted with accounts of loyal Pomeranians. In addition to Queen Charlotte and Queen Victoria, Poms were members of other royal courts including those of Marie Antoinette (1755-1793), and Empress Josephine of France (1763-1814), the wife of Napoleon I.
The famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote an aria to immortalize his cherished Pomeranian named Pimperl. Michaelango’s little Pom is believed to have perched on a satin pillow while watching his master paint the Sistine Chapel. Church reformist, Martin Luther, wrote about his much-loved Pomeranian Belferlein. Then there is Sir Issac Newtons’s Pomeranian, “Diamond,” who is believed to have tipped over a candle causing the fire that destroyed much of the eminent scientist’s life’s work of papers resulting in Newton’s nervous breakdown.
Charles Darwin owned a Pom named Snow. The magician Harry Houdini had a Pomeranian he named Charlie. Two Pomeranians were rescued with their owners from the sinking of the Titanic. Poms “Sweet Pea” and “Edmond” were adored by their owner, the American “King” Elvis Presley.
Pomeranian Dogs are travel-ready companions for jet-setting lifestyles.
