Pomeranian

Named after the Pomerania area which splits Poland and Germany, the Pomeranian is a descendant of larger Spitz type dogs. Their coats have an array of different colors – black, cream, brown, orange, red, or any mixture of these colors.

 

The modern-day Pom is heavily influenced by the British Royal Family. Queen Charlotte brought two Pomeranians to England in 1767, although that version of the breed weighed approximately ten times what a 2022 Pomeranian might weigh (1767 = 35-50lbs; 2022 = 3-7 lbs). During the lifetime of Queen Victoria, she worked to reduce the breed in size from the typical 40-50 pound range to accommodate her preference for a smaller dog. By importing Poms from across the world, not only did she achieve her goal of making the breed smaller, but it also resulted in a diverse range of colorings which we see in Pomeranians today.

 

The modern Pomeranian is commonly used as a household pet. They are affectionate towards their owners, and thrive on attention. In their quest to be alongside their family at every turn, Pomeranians can occasionally suffer from separation anxiety.

French Bulldog

 

The French Bulldog frequently ranks near the top of most-registered dog lists around the globe. In 2020 registration lists in both the United States and the United Kingdom, the Frenchie was in second place.

The breed has its origins in the United Kingdom. They were often used in blood sports, until these were outlawed in 1835. When lace workers in Nottingham, England were displaced by the Industrial Revolution, they moved to France – bringing their bulldogs with them. As the nineteenth century progressed, the French gained an affinity for these dogs. This coincided with English breeders sending Bulldogs to France which they deemed to be too small. The dogs became popular with the creative class in Paris, garnering favor with artists and fashion designers.

 

Today, French Bulldogs are kept as companion dogs in many countries. They do require socialization and close contact with humans to reduce the chance of separation anxiety. Overall, they are considered intelligent, affectionate and occasionally stubborn dogs.
