About the Pomeranian

With five different sizes, ranging from 18 – 55cm, and an array of coat colours, the German Spitz is an incredibly diverse breed.

The German Spitz is the ancestor of most of the spitz-type breeds recognised today. Their beautiful coat with abundant undercoat is one of their most captivating features, especially the mane-like collar and bushy tail.
The five varieties of German Spitz are known separately as the Toy Spitz, Miniature Spitz, Medium Spitz, Giant Spitz and Wolfspitz. In non-German-speaking countries Wolfspitz are known as Keeshonds and Toy Spitz as Pomeranians.
