Pomeranian is linked to the Spitz-type sled and herding dogs of the Arctic. The Pomeranian is definitely related to the Samoyed and the Keeshond, and in Europe it is also known as the Dwarf Keeshond. Dogs very alike to the Pomeranian were known to live in Pomerania, the region on the Baltic coast which is now part of Poland and Germany. Early Pomeranian was much larger, but selective breeding during the 20th century has now resulted in a very small toy dog-breed.
