[They were] developed and popularized in England. The Pomeranian [was] Queen Victoria’s favorite, being present even [when she was] on her deathbed. My target Pomeranian is [one with] an English Hadleigh head and an American body, with the right coat texture and the right rear angulation. A good specimen from my breeding is Ph Ch Canton Jet Star.
