Pomeranians, affectionately known as Poms, were bred from northern sled dogs such as the Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, and Samoyed, so they still have a "big dog" attitude. The Pomeranian's long and luxurious coat, as well as its shiny eyes, are some of its best features, but that coat also needs lots of maintenance. Poms are known for their cute and cuddly appearances-- as well as their short legs-- and are portrayed in many forms of media as an intelligent breed.
One very well-known Pom is Mr. Muggles from the TV show Heroes. He is not a major character but also appears in the graphic novels and is well known for his cute and cuddly appearance, a typical Pomeranian. According to some sources, Michelangelo also owned a Pomeranian, and rumors state that he did some of his best work with his Pom.
