These small, adorable pups are nicknamed “Pom-poms” because of their appearance. Most Pomeranians have sweet and gentle dispositions and make excellent lap dogs. They’re also playful and very smart, meaning that it’s easy to train them to do fun tricks.
They also tend to bark a lot, which is terrific if you’re looking for a guard dog. But if you prefer peace and quiet, a Pomeranian might not be the perfect match for you.
