Pomeranian

General Description

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.

General Health

Collapsed trachea · Patella luxation · Hypoglycaemia · Reverse sneezing · Cataracts · Distichiasis · Black skin disease.

Character and Temperament

Playful, friendly, intelligent, extroverted, sociable and active

Exercise

Exercise-wise, a fully grown Pom usually needs no more than 30 minutes of walking each day split between a morning and evening walk; with much younger or older dogs, this is likely to be a bit lower. Overdoing it can put pressure on your buddy's joints and bones, so always follow the specific exercise advice of your vet.

Origin

The Pomeranian is a breed of dog of the Spitz type that is named for the Pomerania region in north-west Poland and north-east Germany in Central Europe.
