Beautiful Red Merle Male

About Beautiful Red Merle Male

This is one of the most beautiful merle poms I have produced, or seen. He is almost all hair; and the sweetest boy you can imagine. He is really an overlooked gem. His pictures do not do him justice. He is AKC, guaranteed a year, has all shots and wormings UTD, has a 5 generation pedigree with a few champions in it. This is really a great little guy and should be about 6 pounds, maybe less.

About The Breed: Pomeranian

History
The Pomeranian originated from the sled dogs of Iceland and Lapland, which were eventually brought into Europe in Pomerania. This region, bordered on the north by the Baltic Sea, has been under the control of the Celts, Slavonic, Poland, Sweden, Denmark and Prussia, at various times. This region extends from the west of the Ruegen Island to the Vistula river—there it became popular both as a pet and working dog. The name Pomore or Pommern, meaning "on the sea" was given to the district about the time of Charlemagne.

Breeders in Pomerania improved the coat and bred the dogs down for city living, but they were still 20 pounds or more when they reached England.

English breeders, through trial and error and Mendelian theories, are credited for reducing the dog's size and developing the many colors. The Pomeranian of today is small due to selective breeding, but the breed still retains the hardy disposition and thick coat typical of dogs in cold climates.

Queen Charlotte first introduced the the Pomeranian to English nobility, however; the Pom gained international popularity when her granddaughter Victoria returned from vacation in Florence, Italy with a Pomeranian named Marco.

(It should be noted that the Pomeranian as a modern breed did not exist until the 19th century, The dogs owned by Queen Charlotte & Queen Victoria were much larger and were European Spitz. Probably a German Spitz and a Volpino Italiano. The same is true of any other historical pom owners from before the 19th century)

The closest relatives of the Pomeranian are the Norwegian Elkhound, the Samoyed, the Schipperke, and the whole Spitz group.
Description
The Pomeranian is a breed of dog in the spitz family, named for the Pomerania region of Poland and eastern Germany, and classed as a toy dog breed because of its small size.

At an average of 3 to 7 lb (1.4 to 3.2 kg) according to AKC standards, the Pomeranian (Pom) is the most diminutive of the northern breeds.

The head of the Pomeranian is wedge-shaped, making it somewhat foxy in appearance. The ears are small and set high. Its tail is characteristic of the breed and should be turned over the back and carried flat, set high.

A "parti-color" PomeranianThe Pom's coat is its glory, two coats, an undercoat and a top coat; the first is soft, thick, and fluffy; the latter is long, straight and coarse. The undercoat is shed once a year by males, by intact females when they are in season, after delivering a litter, and during times of stress.

The AKC recognizes thirteen colors or color combinations: black, black & tan, blue, blue & tan, chocolate, chocolate & tan, cream, cream sable, orange, orange sable, red, red sable, and sable. The dogs that have 2 or more colors (usually mostly white, with others), are called "Parti-Color". The AKC also recognizes five "alternative" colors: Beaver, brindle, chocolate sable, white, and wolf sable.

One breed standard calls for a cobby, balanced dog. A cobby dog is as long or shorter than he is tall; try to picture him as a circle in a square. A balanced Pomeranian fits together logically and in proportion. For instance, a small, delicately boned Pom with a large head looks unbalanced because his head type doesn't match his body type. A balanced Pom displays legs in proportion to his body: neither so short as to make him appear dumpy nor so long as to make him look like he is walking on stilts.

This standard also calls for an expression that imparts great intelligence, showing that the Pom has an alert character and that he behaves accordingly. The pom's alertness makes him a superb watchdog.
General Information
Pomeranians are generally a healthy, hardy, and long-lived breed— Poms often live 12 to 16 years or so.

The most common problem in Pomeranians is luxating patella. Also Legg-Calvé-Perthes syndrome and hip dysplasia can occur, but are rarer in this small breed. Patent ductus arteriosus (a heart disease) and collapsing trachea have become serious problems in Poms. Dry eye, tear duct disorders and cataracts that can appear in young adulthood and often lead to blindness are also common. Skin diseases are quite common, especially allergies (that oten leads to acute moist dermatitis or "hot spots") and follicular dysplasia (also known as alopecia X). Other problems that occur regularly include hypothyroidism, epilepsy, and hypoglycemia. Occasionally, hydrocephalus can occur in Pom puppies. Poms, like many Toy breeds, are prone to bad teeth and harmless episodes of reverse sneezing.

Coat care for the Pomeranian is similar to the Pekingese. A daily or twice weekly brushing is essential to keep the thick, plush coat, which sheds seasonally, free of mats. Regular ear and nail care is recommended, along with peak seasonal bathing. However, it is unadvisable to bathe Pomeranians too frequently as excessive bathing can damage their skin and coat by removing essential oils. Pomeranians are also prone to teeth problems, and it is recommended that their teeth be brushed at least once a week. Ideally, their teeth should be brushed daily.

In Literature Beatrix Potter, who wrote and illustrated the famous and much loved "Peter Rabbit" books, also wrote a story about a black Pomeranian, Duchess. In The Pie and The Patty Pan, the little Pomeranian is invited over to her cat-friend's house for tea. Feeling certain her friend will be serving mouse pie, Duchess goes to considerable lengths and gets herself in quite a pickle to avoid having to eat mouse while at the same time trying not to offend her friend. "The Pie and The Patty Pan" is Number 17 in the Beatrix Potter book series. In the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter, Anita's Neighbor has a Pomeranian named Custard. Custard is cream-colored and very bossy.

In Movies The 2006 movie Superman Returns features two Orange-Sable Pomeranians. A clever pomeranian escapes from his would be kidnappers in Screwed. Will Smith's character in Enemy of the State has a white pomeranian. Triple H's character in Blade: Trinity has a pet vampire pomeranian named Pac-man. In Disney's Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure, Angel is a pomeranian puppy who falls in love with the main hero Scamp and becomes a part of his family. A Pomeranian is briefly seen in the first few minutes of the 1994 comedy "Dumb and Dumber". When Harry Dunn (Jeff Daniels) is handing out food to the dogs in his van and annoucnes a foot-long hot dog, a Pom emerges from the back of the van, to which Harry says "In your dreams". In Titanic elderly Rose has a yellow pomeranian.

In Television
In the Disney show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, London Tipton, the heiress of the Tipton fortune, has a Pomeranian named Ivana.
In the anime version of Excel Saga, the dog "Menchi" is referred to as a Pomeranian in episode 19, though the manga version has not expressed what breed she is.
Physicality
Averages 6 inches.
Personality
The Pomeranian is a very active dog who is intelligent, courageous, and a loyal companion. The Pomeranian may not interact well with small children, and due to its small size can suffer abuse from children.

Pomeranians can be trained to be good watchdogs by announcing intruders with loud, sharp barks. Unfortunately, lack of very dedicated training has instead led this breed to a reputation for constant, undirected barking. For this reason, these dogs are more often dangerously ineffective watchdogs, and can prove very stressful company for those unaccustomed to their vocal nature.

The Pomeranian easily adapts to life in the city, and is an excellent dog for country living with its strong hunting instincts from its wild ancestors.
Talents and Skills
Watchdog, agility, and performing tricks.
