Pomeranian History

Throughout history, the Pomeranian, also referred to as the Pom, the Pom Pom or Loulou de Pomeranie, has traveled the world and has gathered an impressive number of admirers. From a big working dog to a tiny, sweet, loving companion dog of royal families, the Pomeranian’s Journey is quite colorful. The smallest member of the ancient Spitz family, the Pomeranian, who was not always as tiny and innocent looking, is believed to be a descendent of a much bigger Spitz sled dog from the Arctic region. Centuries ago, the Pomeranian ancestor, a tall, strong, working dog, made its way to the Pomerania region (now part of Northern Poland and eastern Germany) near the Baltic Sea where it was bred down to a smaller size and given a new name – Pomeranian (a name derived from an old Slavic expression “po more” – by the sea). From Pomerania, the clever, friendly and affectionate Pom dogs quickly spread out across Europe and into the hearts of royal families. Among the Pomeranian’s greatest admirers were Napoleon of France, King George IV and Queen Victoria. Queen Victoria was so fond of the Pomeranian breed that she acquired a few small versions of the dogs and bred them down through generations. It is believed that during her reign, Queen Victoria managed to breed the Pomeranian size down by half, thus creating the tiny Pomeranian dogs so adored today. From there on, the charismatic Pomeranians would travel across seas, oceans and lands, and would become one of the most popular dog breeds in the world.
