Best Breed Ever! Pomeranians!
Poms are in the same family as Huskies, Malamutes and Akita Inus
Pom larger anscestors were once used as sled dogs in Iceland!
Today’s Poms are much smaller and are considered as a “Toy breed”
Two Poms together are called a “Puff” and 3 or more are called a “Tufts”
In 1888, Queen Victoria of England popularized small Poms. She had 35 during her reign.
2 Poms survived the Titanic in 1912, as well as one other dog that night.
Poms are very friendly, playful, but not good for children.
Most Poms go through an “ugly puppy” phase, where patches of fur will fall out for adult
fur. Poms make for very good guard dogs, will alert
owners of everything! Poms tend to bark excessively, can be agressive
and dominant if not trained. Poms are indoor dogs; do well in small apartments.
Poms live to be 12-16 years.
