The Pomeranian dog is a breed in the spitz family, named for the Pomerania region of Historical Eastern Germany, which is today part of northern Poland and part of eastern Germany, and classed as a toy dog breed because of its small size. As determined by the FCI the Pomeranian is part of the German Spitz breed, and in German and many foreign speaking countries known as the the Zwergspitz, or Toy German Spitz. The Pomeranian breed as a whole did not fully exist until the 19th century.
The Pomeranian weights an average of 3 to 7 lb (1.4 to 3.2 kg) according to AKC standards.Their head is wedge-shaped, making it somewhat foxy in appearance. The ears of the Pomeranian are small and set high. Its tail is characteristic of the breed and should be turned over the back and carried flat, set high. When born, the tail is not spread out; it may take months for it to grow over the Pomeranian's back, and flatten.
