    A pomeranian is a specific spitz-type breed. Spitz is a general term describing several similar (and many of them related) breeds with a thick double coat, small erect ears, and a tail that curls over their back. Samoyeds, Finish Spitz, and American Eskimo dogs are some other spitz breeds that come instantly to my mind.

    Spitz is larger and has darker fur. The pomerainian is mostly short tempered, shorter, and lighter/orange fur. Spiztz' have different markings
