The Pomeranian is similar to the Chihuahua in many ways. Both are small dogs that are part of the toy group, and both have become associated with style and celebrity culture. The “Pom” originated in Germany before being popularised in the UK by Queen Victoria, who exhibited it in dog shows in London. It is quirky and friendly and often doesn’t realise its own size. Pomeranians tend to be good with children and make great dog models, particularly when used in the high-fashion and entertainment industries.
