The first Pomeranians arose in the province of Pomerania (north of Poland and Germany) from the ancient Spitz dog breeds, coming from the northern countries. The closest relatives of the Pomeranian are the Norwegian Elkhound, the German Spitz, and the Samoyed, among others, which are characterized by having wedge-shaped heads, pointed ears, and plush fur.

In 1761 the appeal of the Pomeranians moved to England when Sophie Charlotte, a 17-year-old princess from Mecklenburg-Strelitz (a neighboring province of Pomerania) married the English prince who would later become King George III and married. took them there.

On average, this type of Pomeranian usually measures between 15 and 17 centimeters, also weighing between 1.4 and 3.2 kilograms. Its fur forms a kind of fluffy collar around the head and neck that can be any color.

Bear-faced Pomeranian or Boo Pomeranian: This type of Pomeranian was developed in the United States and is characterized by a face that resembles that of a teddy bear and a significantly shorter muzzle that softens the appearance of its face. His eyes also appear to be larger, being closer to the snout, while his ears are smaller and rounder. Also, their fur is thicker.
