Pomeranians are a member of the Spitz family, which all have thick coats with a particular appearance. Despite his tiny size, he has a huge personality that speaks volumes. Furthermore, he will get loud with his barking too. The Pomeranian is not well-suited to families with small children because they don’t handle rough play very well. They’re more suitable for quiet households with adults, where the Pomeranian can be the center of attention. But don’t let this attitude run too rampant; without discipline, the pom can become very bossy and unruly, even with his owners. They do make good watchdogs, though, and will bark when someone is at the door.
