The Pomeranian combines a tiny body (no more than seven pounds) and a commanding big-dog
demeanor. The abundant double coat, with its frill extending over the chest and shoulders, comes
in almost two dozen colors, and various patterns and markings, but is most commonly seen in
orange or red. Alert and intelligent, Pomeranians are easily trained and make fine watchdogs and
perky pets for families with children old enough to know the difference between a toy dog and a
toy. Poms are active but can be exercised with indoor play and short walks, so they are content in
both the city and suburbs. They will master tricks and games with ease, though their favorite
activity is providing laughs and companionship to their special human.
