Pomeranian Dog Breed Information and Personality Traits. Perky and friendly, Pomeranians, even though small, need regular exercise and thrive on training. They are intelligent, but sometimes do not realize they are small and will confront larger dogs.
During Queen Victoria's lifetime alone, the size of the breed had decreased by half. Overall, the Pomeranian is a sturdy, healthy dog. The most common health issues are luxating patella and tracheal collapse. More rarely, the breed can have Alopecia X, a skin condition colloquially known as "black skin disease".
