The Pomeranian comes from the region of Pomerania, now part of Germany and Poland. The breed was originally a herding and sled dog, weighed as much as 30 pounds and had a thick, harsh double coat, which he still retains. At that time a relatively unknown breed, the Pomeranian was popularized by Queen Victoria during her reign.
It is she who made the Pomeranian what he is today. She is credited for both creating the miniature Pomeranian breed as well as popularizing it.
