Classed as a Toy size dog, the Pomeranian (Pom for short) is intelligent, curious and lively. One of the more independent of the toy-size breeds, the Pom has a loving nature but may want to be in charge if allowed. Originating from the ancient Spitz breeds, the Pom was a much larger size, to begin with, and would spend its time herding sheep. Queen Elizabeth is said to have owned Pomeranians and it was her who decided to show them and develop them into a smaller size companion. Their love for agility, however, was not reduced, and they remain as active as ever, requiring daily walks and exercise.
