Classed as a toy dog breed because of its small size, the Pomeranian is descended from larger Spitz-type dogs. During the 19th century Pomeranians were bred smaller from their husky ancestors and developed as a breed. These smaller dogs were kept as companions. They have grown to become a very popular family pet in the US. The Pomeranian is the smallest a member of the Spitz family of breeds. Dogs in this group generally have thick, long fur. Ancestors of the Pom were generally white, black or off-white in color.
