The breed

The Pomeranian Breed Standard was originally developed in the Great Britain and USA, but in 1998 the Pomeranian was regrettably assigned to German Spitz Breed Standard.

The breed’s name  Pomeranian originally came from the historical region of Pomerania (now present day Germany and Poland). Originally weighing nearly 30 pounds, the dog served as an able herder of sheep in its larger form. They were not well known until 1870, when the Kennel Club (England) recognized the so-called Spitz dog. In 1888, Queen Victoria fell in love with a Pomeranian in Florence, Italy, and brought the specimen back to England, influencing its popularity dramatically.

Chriscendo Conviction  owner Vera  RU

Unfortunately, I have to follow the FCI standard in 1998, where the Pomeranians were senselessly assigned to the European German Spitz.

In general, I submit breeding to the American and Canadian breed standards, where Pomeranian evolved over 100 years into a different form than it was with the European dwarven spitz and where its detailed treated dard originated and also the place where I import breeding dogs and bitches from.
However, first I have to respect the FCI standard of 1998, so my puppies have a pedigree

Short look back at the origins of the breed Pomeranian:

Originally, a dog weighing nearly 30 kg served as a capable herding dog and a sheep guard (in its larger form). Its original colour was gray-shaded. In the middle of the 18th century, it completely got the heart of England's Queen Charlotte, Mecklenburg princess and the wife of King George III. In an accompanying letter Lord Haarcourt describes a pair of "Pomeranians dogs", which he brought as a gift "from Pomerania 'and gave them to the Queen as a present. They were called Phoebe and Until 1870, when the Kennel Club (England) recognized the breed as Spitz dog, they had not been known.
In 1888, Queen Victoria fell in love with the orange Spitz in Florence, Italy, and brought it to England. With this import, she dramatically influenced the Pomeranian’s popularity, not only in England. Queen Victoria was contributed not only in popularization of the Pomeranians, but also their gradual shrinking.
In 1888 the first Pomeranian Dick was brought to the US and was entered in the stud book by the American Kennel Club. In 1892, the first representative of the breed was shown at an exhibition in New York. It was recognized by the AKC in 1900 and its popularity grew very quickly. In 1909, the American Pomeranian Club was accepted as a full member of the club AKC. In 1938 the Pomeranian Sealand Moneybox was purchased for a whopping $ 2500 in England and imported to the United States. By the mid-century Pomeranian was one of the most popular dog breeds in America. In the seventies of the last century it was ranked in the 14th place out of 155 AKC registered breeds. And as the years passed, the breed got changed. The structure and hair profusion totally changed. His skeleton swelled, the angulation of front and rear legs changed and so the related movement of the dog, its character and its proudly carried head changed too.
Transoceanic Pomeranian breeding lines are separated from Central Europe German Spitz by more than a hundred years separated, moreover Pomeranian is different from the German Spitz in almost all the attributes as well as the English cocker spaniel is different from the US one.
Mercury and became darlings of the nobility and often posed for portraits together with the royal family. Since then, they have been called Pomeranian.


(German Pommern, Polish Pomerania, latinskyPomerania) is a historical region on the Baltic coast, divided since 1945 between Poland and Germany. Historical capital of the Szczecin in Poland today. The German part since 1990 divided between the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (most areas) and Brandenburg (a small part of the territory). The Polish section is now divided between The West Pomeranian Voivodeship and Pomeranian.

Breed development : The USA, social breed  

The characteristics of the Pomeranian and who fits them.
Pomeranian breed is deliberately bred dog miniature, with a foxy expression. It comes from a family of larger Spitz dogs found around the German and Polish territory. In Great Britain and later the United States has been well selected to present a charming and elegant companion of a mankind. It is known worldwide for its rich, fluffy fur, short stature, and his lively character. The Pomeranian is a great pleasure for their owners, especially for its appearance, character and charming manners. Pomeranians add elegance and excitement to each family that owns them.
Suitable for families looking for a spirited dog that will love them and their family.
It's a very sociable dog that looks like a toy dog ??with a baby face or a teddy bear.
Despite his temperament, he is very intelligent and in important situations (exhibitions and visits) is a distinguished and disciplined.
Its most striking feature is the human desire for patronage. It loves people and is very sociable. The Pomeranian is very well tolerated in groups, so you can get several Pomeranians.

Pomeranian German Toy Spitz

As well as other breeders of Pomeranian that we talk to at foreign exhibitions, we will never accept the fact that the German Spitz and Pomeranian is one and the same breed. We are strictly against the crossing of German and Pomeranian Spitz and reversing breed of dwarven species to minor species and vice versa, because it causes disunity and destruction of breeding of the two breeds.

Native country:  Germans say that the dwarf Spitz returned after 200 years back to their native country. After the 2nd World War, in the former GDR, the Germans did not recognize dwarf Spitz and phased them out for dwarfism from breeding.

We have to separate Pomeranian breed from the German Spitz breed.


Pomeranian Club was founded in England in 1891  and the Association for German Spitz in Germany 8 years later  in 1899. So who was the first?
Answer - The Pomeranian breed.

Types, colour, and colouring according to the standard AKC Pomeranian   – here

If we want to maintain the type of Pomeranian, we obviously have to strictly observe not only the purity of the breed, but also adhere to architectural standards - exterior of the breed standard, according to the AKC, country of breed development. What should be mentioned about the colours, the breeding advisers and referees should realize that the Pomeranian was and is as a breed named in the FCI standard, which means, it exists as a separate breed, and although it was included among the Spits, it means that it has been accepted, including the type and colour varieties.
It is also true that the FCI standard does not refer to any prohibited colour but during exhibitions and shows we can see problems that arise when considering Pomeranian dyed differently than our referees know from German Spitz.

Excluding colour is only monochrome coloured dog with white markings on the legs and chest - newly, with white spots on a monochrome base.

And now a new change, from January 2013 prohibits the FCI, the exact wording of the standard, and I te - color quovariations resulting from Merle factoru.

  • So these are for me standard representatives of all spitzs variety and sizes, who came from land of Germany – Pommerania. Some of them, of course, had been cultivating and have been improoving for years in the Middle Europe or in the Great Britain and the United States of America.
