The Pomeranian is one of the most popular dogs in the world. This breed’s nickname is ‘Pom’ and they are often referred to as ‘balls of fluff’. Let’s look at some Pomeranian facts to learn more about this amazing dog breed. Pomeranians are easily recognized by their luxuriant fluffy double coat and foxy face with alert, prick ears. The body shape is fairly square, and the fluffy tail curls up and over the back. A thick ruff around the neck completes the picture of a dog that could handle the snows of northern Germany.
The head is somewhat rounded with a distinct muzzle. These are active little dogs that do need daily exercise, even if it is just a walk around the block. They are quite intelligent and do well in obedience competitions despite a small independent streak. As they age, they are more amenable to being truly lap dogs.
