The Pomeranians are the descendants of large sled dogs and named after the region of Pomerania in Poland and Germany.
Inquisitive by nature, Pomeranians are strong-willed and lively dogs known to be small yet sturdy.
These dogs were popularized by Queen Victoria in the 18th century as she owned one.

Breed Information: The Pomeranians
Pomeranians are suspicious little dogs that bark quite a lot.
They are known to be difficult to housetrain but, are good with children.
You shouldn’t get a Pom if you have young children as they’re quite small and can get injured rather easily.
Pomeranians can’t take the heat or humidity because of their thick fur and can even have a heat stroke. This is why dogs should be kept indoors.
But, that’s not it!
Because of their small size, Pomeranians are perceived as prey by eagles, hawks, owls, coyotes, etc. so, you should keep your dog close if you’re taking him outside.
Their killer looks can also attract dognapper.
Even though they are rather small in size, Pomeranians have a ‘big dog’ attitude and may even start a fight with bigger dogs in a dog park!
So, you do need to keep an eye on this tiny ball of fur!
Personality Traits of the Teacup Pomeranian
In this section of the post, I want to share the key personality traits of Pomeranians.
This is probably an important thing to know if the dog is compatible with your lifestyle.
Let’s take a peek!
Pomeranians are Social Animals
Pomeranians are social animals and go along well with other humans as well as pets. Also, they’re amazing with kids!
The good thing about these dogs is that they like people in general but, can get protective and territorial as well.
To mix up well with others, they need to first be introduced to new people.
Their temperament makes them a good companion for kids.
But, since they’re small and quite delicate, Pomeranians may not be a good fit for smaller children as they might unintentionally hurt the doggy.
They Like to Bark
Pomeranians are infamous for being excessive barkers.
As they’re highly territorial and quite alert, they bark at almost anything and everything they find suspicious.
So, they’ll probably wake you up multiple times at night!
You may train them not to bark so much but, that doesn’t really fix things. Pomeranians are nightmare for neighbors.
Pomeranians catch on to things rather quickly and are quite intelligent—you won’t find them on the list of dumb dogs.
Their intelligence makes them rather trainable but, these dogs are strong-willed and need an owner who is confident to respect him and his commands.
That being said, training them isn’t as easy as it may seem.
Pomeranians are adaptable and are well-suited for small apartments as well as large houses.
They can live in hot as well as cold regions and do rather well in colder climates as their ancestors were from the Arctic areas.
These tiny little dogs can do anything and everything for their owners.
They’re quite loyal and will do everything in their power to protect you.
Isn’t this just so cute!?
Pomeranians are small and furry little dogs with a feisty personality.
They like people and get along with other pets. They’re lively and light up any room that they go in.
They are quite protective as well. They’re good guard dogs and will warn you if they find anything suspicious.
And, they are loyal!
