Pomeranians and Royalty

H.R.H. Prince George of Wales and a Pomeranian

H.R.H. Prince George of Wales and a Pomeranian

In England, in 1761, George III was shortly to be crowned King. His soon-to-be Queen was Charlotte from the Duchy of Mecklenburg, a German territory, and a neighbor of Pomerania. She was only 17 years old when she committed to this politically expedient marriage.

Queen Charlotte brought her beloved Pomeranians with her. These dogs were either white or cream in color, except for Fino, a black and white dog who was especially loved by the Prince of Wales (King George the Fourth).

Pomeranian dogs lived in the Royal palaces and several of the Queen’s peers received a Pomeranian for themselves. The King’s son, (King George the Fourth) carried on this royal tradition, and examples of this appeared in paintings by Gainsborough and Stubbs.

Queen Victoria’s involvement with Pomeranians.

Queen Victoria was Queen Charlotte’s granddaughter, and she obviously inherited her grandmother’s passion for Pomeranians. She was widely acknowledged as the most famous person who owned and exhibited Pomeranians during her lifetime. Over the years she imported numerous Pomeranians from different parts of Europe. The dogs had different colored coats and her kennel in Windsor housed more than 30 Pomeranians.

Queen Victoria housed several different dog breeds in her Home Park Kennels. In February 1891 in Crufts (London), the Queen first exhibited Pomeranians and Collies.

The people of England greatly admired and loved Queen Victoria as well as her dogs, who became very popular. She absolutely loved her Pomeranians and they were of great comfort to her during the period after Prince Albert passed away.

The Queen’s royal Pomeranians often traveled with her. The royal train contained a specially made compartment to house her dogs during her train trips. Her dogs were even protected by special policemen to guarantee their security and safety. When Victoria was on her deathbed, she asked her people to bring her favorite Pomeranian to keep her company during her final days.

Because people had an incredible fascination for the dogs in with the Queen’s life, there was a mammoth amount of information available to the general public. So there’s plenty of accurate information about her dogs and their involvement in her life. Much of this information appeared in the New York Times, various British papers and magazines, as well as canine-specific magazines.

While Queen Victoria was on holiday in Florence in 1888, she bought foundation stock of Italian Spitz dogs also called Volpino Italiano or Florentine Spitz.

Reading all about the Queen and her passion for Pomeranians, you should understand that the dogs she loved back in her day aren’t classified as Pomeranians today by the English Kennel Club. There have been many improvements to breed type in the Pomeranian since Queen Victoria’s day and the Pomeranian is now in the toy group in non-FCI countries. The type of dog bred and loved by Queen Victoria is now referred to as the German Spitz and is even shown in a different group in non-FCI countries.

If Queen Victoria was breeding dogs today, her mission to breed German Spitz dogs with the Italian Volpino dogs would probably be frowned upon. This was a common practice of many other Pomeranian breeders of that era and resulted in the appearance of many new colors in the breed.

At the end of a kennel visit, a comment was made regarding the “type” of Pomeranian owned by the Queen. The comment went like this:

“A dog’s coat is thick and long and appears to be standing out from his body. His tail curls over and lays near to his back. His ears are erect and small and he has a foxy head. His legs and back are fairly short and his overall appearance is of a thick set square dog. Despite all these factors, he seems to be as energetic as a kitten.”

Carson I. A. Ritchie wrote a book titled the “British Dog – Its History from Earliest Times” He wrote a couple of intriguing statements.

Carson I. A. Ritchie in his book about the history of British Dogs makes some interesting comments:

1. In 1838, after she was crowned, Queen Victoria rushed home from the Abbey, removed her stately robes and bathed her Pomeranians.
2. In 1889, prior to her entering the Crufts show with the three dogs, the Queen paid a visit to Florence where she came across a local fancy toy dog breed.
3. In 1891, Nino, Fluffy and Gena were the Queen’s three Pomeranians that were exhibited at Crufts.
4. In 1892, the dogs were entered in the same event.

The Queen stopped exhibiting her beloved dogs after a number of them contracted distemper and died. She suspected one or more of her dogs brought the disease back to the kennel when they were involved in a dog show earlier that year.

Queen Victoria had a preference for Poms that weighed 6-12 lbs.

The Windsor Kennel name is now owned by Queen Elizabeth II.

Information about individual Pomeranians owned by the Queen.

Queen Victoria’s Pomeranian “Gina/ Gena”

GENA.

Queen Victoria purchased Gena in 1888 while visiting Florence. However, her pedigree, breeder and birth date were not known (a commonality in those days).Gina was white in color with some touches of lemon, and she weighed 7.5 pounds.

Gena was proudly shown at the very first Crufts and the judges diplomatically judged her as a equal winner alongside Rob. Rob, a white Pomeranian later became the very first champion of the breed; Champion Rob of Rozelle.

The New York Times listed Gena as being a dog that was one of the best known in the entire world, and was especially favored by Queen Victoria. After she was listed as originating in Italy, she also gained the name “toy Pomeranian.”

Newspaper reports of the time included her weight and both of her first place show wins at Crufts because that was the first time the Queen had entered her in a show.

Gena was described as “tiny little Gena” because she looked like a silky white ball of wool.

BEPPO.

Queen Victoria's Pomeranian Beppo. Pomeranian owned by Royalty

Queen Victoria’s Pomeranian Beppo

While on her trip to Florence in 1888, the Queen also bought Beppo but, as usual, information about her pedigree birth date and breeder didn’t seem to exist. He was a very handsome dog.

Beppo’s coat was almost a pure white color, however, he did have a single lemon patch near one eye, as well as a black nose. Beppo came third in the Crufts show in 1892.

LINA.

No records exist that Lina ever participated in dog shows. She was mated with Marco and her two puppies came into the world on July 27th, 1891. Their names were LULU and MINA. In 1892, Lulu won a higher place than Mina. Both puppies had fawn coats.

LENDA.

Lenda was one of the other dogs to be bought while the Queen was in Florence. In April 1981, Lenda first appeared at the show conducted at the Kennel club and narrowly missed out on first place.

Lenda had a white “blaze” and a fleck of white on the side of her neck. Overall, her color was referred to as “buff”. Her tail was regarded as the best carriage and shape, compared to the rest of the Queen’s dogs. Her head was foxy and her breechings), were regarded as “handsome and full.”

Lenda and Marco had two puppies (NINO and FLUFFY), on August the 4th, 1889. Nino’s coat had a deep brown and sat higher on his legs than most dogs. Nino was placed third at the 1891 Kennel Club Show.

FLUFFY.

Princess Ileana of Romania and her Pomeranian

Princess Ileana of Romania and her Pomeranian

Fluffy achieved greater success than her brother in the show ring.
Her coat was registered as white and cream and some described Fluffy as the smallest of the Queen’s Pomeranians. Fluffy’s coat was the same buff color that her mother had.
Fluffy’s tail was far from perfect, having a limp tail. Beppo and Fluffy were mated and produced one puppy – Glinda.

Mrs Gordon Lynns was the proud owner of RUFFLE, described as an exquisite sable Pomeranian. (Fact: Ruffle was born in 1892 but didn’t get his title until 1901.)
Ruffle mated with both Gilda and Fluffy.

Sadly, all the puppies, as well as Fluffy herself, died during the whelping.
Mrs Lynns offered the Queen the opportunity to mate with another of her dogs and she gratefully accepted the kind offer.

Gilda and Ruffle’s daughter (GILDA 2) was born in 1895 and was bought by Mr Smith, who showed her at Crufts in 1896.

Lenda also gave birth to Alfio (sired by Windsor Marco), a dog with a red coat. Alfio won first place at the 1894 Crufts puppy class.

MARCO.

Windsor Marco. Pomeranian owned by Royalty

Windsor Marco

Marco was a German Spitz and he was recorded as being named for Marco Polo, a well-known Italian traveler and merchant. Marco was born in 1888 and weighed 12 pounds. His coat was deep red sable but his hind featherings and tail had an almost white tint.

Lenda and Marco were mated on three separate occasions and produced a total of five puppies – Nino and Fluffy, Mina and Lula, and Alfio was the last one.

ZEELA and TURI.

Zeela was another much loved, black dog owned by the Queen.

The Queen bought her last dog, Turi, in 1893. He appears in many photos with the Queen and was the last favorite dog to see HRH Her Majesty alive. On the day prior to her death, she seemed to gain a little extra energy and asked for her staff to bring Turi to her. The Queen lost her life on 22 January, 1901.

BLACKIE

Other people in the Royal family also had a love of Pomeranians. In 1895, the Canine Press published a story about “A Pomeranian.”

The Prince brought Blackie from Homburg as a gift for Princess Victoria. Blackie was only four pounds and was often described as lively, friendly and charming. His Spitz coat is everything you would expect; his body is compact and he’s always alert.

When he was one year old, he almost lost his life. Blackie was removed from Marlborough House and taken to Sandringham, he was virtually a skeleton. However, the change in scenery brought him back to splendid health(along with plenty of TLC).

Other Royals also loved of dogs. Mrs Langton Dennis (a successful breeder of this era), received a very special reception when she brought her canines to Buckingham Palace.

When the German Crown Prince and Princess inspected Mrs Langton Dennis’ dogs, it was regarded as a huge compliment and they assured Mrs Dennis that their small Pomeranians couldn’t compare to the English ones when it came to the texture and quality of their coats and that the German dogs lacked that particular “stand-offishness” that was apparent in the English dogs.

The German Princess later purchased several British dogs, the first from Mrs Dennis, (a DragonFly dog) and the second one was an orange sable bitch that was bred by Miss Kirkwood – Offley Shining Light, (she was a daughter of Champion Offley (Saucy Atom).

Many other Royals loved and owned Pomeranians. Joséphine de Beauharnais, wife to Napoleon I of France and Princess Ileana of Romania both  had a passion for Pomeranians.

Pomeranian Dog Origins and Breed History.

Pomeranian Dog Origins and Breed History.

early pomeranian dog. History of the Pomeranian

Early Pomeranian. Called a Wolf Dog

History of the Pomeranian Dog

The Pomeranian was once a larger sized dog and now is the smallest of the spitz dog breeds.  Dogs of spitz type have been displayed on various artefacts dating as far back as 400 B.C.  The spitz breeds are a dog family that lived in parts of Europe and Asia.

Dogs of the Spitz family have prick ears, tails that curl up their backs and a thick double coat. People have relied heavily on these dogs for many reasons including: guarding homes, pulling sledges and protecting livestock. The smaller dogs were frequently cared for as pets/companions.

The name “spitz” wasn’t used as a name for these breeds prior to the 15th century. However, the name “Chien-loup” was used and it’s believed the the French phase “lou-lou” was derived from this name. Historians can’t find any records about the spitz dogs before George 111 sat on the throne in England.

In Germany, various older regional names for these Spitz dogs are translated into English and become the Wolf Spitz, Lion Spitz, Bear Spitz and the Great (aka Gross) Spitz. The smaller dogs included the Fox Spitz and a little later on, the Mannheimer Zwerg- Spitz.

This breed evolved throughout a number of areas of Europe and was called various names,  with several types having no relationship with Pomerania.

In France, Lulu, Chien de Pomeranie or the Lou Lou. The Wolfshond was in Holland but, during the 1780s, this name was altered to Keeshond. Italy had numerous names for this dog, including the: Italian Spitz, Florentine Spitz, Cane de Quirinale, Lupino and Volpino. The Italian variety were usually bright orange or yellow in color. 

Pomeranian Dog 1885. History of the Pomeranian

Pomeranian Dog 1885

The Swedish naturalist, Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778) spent a great deal of time classifying dogs of his era. He mentions the Canis Pomeranus and offered plenty of evidence to support his theory that these dogs were well known in Central and Northern Europe.

Pomeranian Developed as a Breed by English Fanciers.

It wasn’t until the 18th century that the Pomeranian (known then as the Wolf dog), became firmly established in England, as the breed captured the interest of members of the English monarchy. In 1761 marrying King George 111, Queen Charlotte brought her pet dogs to England. Queen Charlotte’s dogs were what was then called “wolf dog” in type and mainly white in colour.

The Pomeranian is named after the territory in Germany from which Queen Charlotte, imported her Pomeranians; Pomerania. Queen Charlotte at the time referred to the breed as the Pommeranian.

The English Pomeranians were usually kept as pets and a lot of the information about these dogs is derived from various paintings.

Despite a few imports, Pomeranians didn’t make a big impact on the people of England until after 1870. In 1859, Newcastle was home to the very first English dog show and, in 1861, another one was held in the Belle Vue Zoo, Manchester.

Mr Bennett owned a Pomeranian Fox Dog that won in his class as a non-sporting foreign dog. In the same year, Mr J.H. Seed exhibited his dog (Jack) in Birmingham, after which the owner made the dog available for purchase at the price of 10 guineas.

December 1862 saw three Pomeranians as exhibits also in Birmingham, as part of the Third Annual showing for Sporting and other dogs. They were classified in an Extra Class that accounted for small foreign dogs not used for field sports. 

The Pomeranians entered were:

• “Alba,” owned by Robert Thornley.
• “Charlie,” owned by Mr C. Bradley.
• “Pop,” owned by Mr J.A. Browning.
All three owners resided in Birmingham.

There were 12 dogs in that class, including a Volpino Roman (aka Pomeranian), Maltese, Prussian Terrier, a Russian dog, and “Willie,” bred in France.

For the first time, in 1863, Pomeranians had classes of their own in London’s Great International Dog Show. 

The top three Pomeranians at the International show were:
1st – “Snap,” owned by Mr Laskie.
2nd – “Guess,” owned by Mr St. Quintin.
3rd – “Fox,” owned by Mr Eaton.

During 1863 a number of Pomeranians were being exhibited in different parts of England.

Showing Pomeranians LKA 1896. History of the Pomeranian

The English Kennel Club registered the breed under the name Pomeranian.

The Pomeranian Club was established by nine members in 1891. There was a growing interest, by breeders, in reducing the size of the dogs they were breeding, but also in producing new colors. No longer did the whites and blacks rank top position in breeding programs and the show ring. Now there were other colors such as orange, sable, blue and chocolate as well.

After reading numerous rare and old dog books, we have learned that the glorious colors now available weren’t even a spot on the horizon during the early development of the Pomeranian breed.

Published back in 1804, the “Sportsman’s Cabinet” discusses the colors available during that period with regards to the Wolf dog, or Pomeranian as it’s now known. “this breed is termed the Pomeranian or Wolf-dog, and the colour is referred to as being “mostly of a pale yellow or cream colour, and lightest in the lower parts; some are white, some few black, and others, but very rarely, spotted”.

The Pomeranian Dog Arrived in the United States of America late 1800’s.

During the late 1880’s, Pomeranians started appearing in various shows in the United States of America where, in 1900, the country’s Kennel Club officially recognized this breed.

Before this official sanction, the breed had to participate in the Miscellaneous Class. January 10, 1911 saw the very first Pomeranian breed show in this country and it was conducted in New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

During this period, shows provided classes for small, medium and big dogs and it took the Pomeranian Club much longer to settle on a suitable weight range for these amazing dogs. Finally it was agreed that Toy Pomeranians weighed under 7lb. All the other Pomeranians were “oversize” with 20lb being the heaviest weight allowed.

This adorable Pomeranian dog was now known and loved throughout England. A great deal of the credit for this adulation goes to Queen Charlotte’s granddaughter, Queen Victoria whose enthusiasm for Poms thrust the breed directly into the public eye.

Royal Interest in the Pomeranian Dog Assured his Popularity

Queen Victoria made the Pomeranians extremely popular, more so than during her grandmother’s reign. Her royal Pomeranians often travelled with her. The royal train contained a separate special compartment for her Poms, and they even had their own security detail to guarantee their security and safety and to help ease her mind. When laying on her deathbed, Queen Victoria asked for her favorite Pom to keep her company.

Mrs Thomas and her Pomeranians. History of the Pomeranian

Mrs Thomas and her Pomeranians

For a couple of years, Queen Victoria was listed as one of the leading breeders, along with Mrs Thomas, Mrs Gordon Lynn and Miss Hamilton. The Queen’s “Marco” won the Club’s gold medal. Mrs Thomas brought dogs from Germany to improve the quality of her stock. Miss Hamilton owned dogs of different colors but concentrated on breeding whites.

Pomeranians were exchanged for large sums of money. There was a strong craze for breeding dogs that were smaller than ever, often through very close inbreeding and results included: apple heads, pop eyes, unsoundness and weediness. The mortality rate during whelping was incredibly high. By 1916, the bigger Pomeranians no longer appeared in the shows, with only the “Toy” size remaining.
