Queen Victoria of England had a deep affection for Pomeranian dogs and owned a remarkable 35 of them.
Pomeranian dogs derive their name from the region of Pomerania in Northern Europe, where they originated.
These pint-sized pups typically weigh between 7 to 10 pounds. Surprisingly, they are descendants of sled dogs, known for their strength.
Pomeranians were not always as tiny as they are today. In the past, they weighed between 20 to 30 pounds but were selectively bred down in size during Queen Victoria's reign.
One key feature that sets Pomeranians apart from other spitz breeds is their tail. Pomeranian tails are straight, lying flat over the dog's back, and never curly.
Boo, a Pomeranian, gained immense popularity with 16 million followers on Facebook. Jiff, another Pomeranian, holds a Guinness World Record for being the fastest dog on two legs.
Pomeranians have made appearances in various films, including Titanic, Superman Returns, and Dumb and Dumber.
Pomeranians are known for getting along well with cats. This harmonious relationship is often best achieved when introducing a kitten to the dog.
A pair of Pomeranians is called "Puffs," while a group of three or more is referred to as a "Tuft."
