Before becoming a decorative breed, the Pomeranian Spitz was a draft breed.
The Pomeranian Spitz dogs are tiny fidgets with cute faces that can’t imagine life without active walks in the fresh air. The breed combines remarkable intelligence with the temperament of its larger siblings. This teddy bear will fearlessly rush to your defense if he sees an enemy in a random passerby. Despite their loyalty and love, the Pomeranian Spitz dogs won’t stay sitting at their owners’ feet for a long time. For them, zooming around outside and active play are much more interesting. In medieval times, these pups were called “dung dogs” because their kennels were built on piles of manure that gave off heat.
Queen Victoria of England was the lucky owner of six dogs of this breed.
A Pomeranian Spitz was one of the lucky dogs who survived the sinking of the Titanic.
