With some memorable exceptions nearly all 342 early breed enthusiasts, and their dogs, in this directory have been entirely forgotten. The contribution of some of those who are remembered is often overstated. Hopefully this list and supplementary information will correct some myths and clarify many aspects of breed development.
But first a little background information and a few myth-busters …
All five sizes of German Spitz (as per FCI definition) plus the Volpino Italiano were classified as Pomeranian dogs in Britain until about 1915 – hence the need for weight division at shows. Eventually colour classes were added. Show Poms of this era consisted of dogs descended from imports -1760 onwards -plus newly imported dogs.
Contrary to information on some web sites and books Queen Victoria was not the first person to show or ‘down-size’ a Pomeranian. At least 170 people in Britain preceded her according to known show records of breeders and/or exhibitors prior to 1888. Some like her popular son ‘Bertie’ (future King Edward VII) already owned small Spitz dogs (Poms), bred in Germany, before the Queen was interested in the breed - she acquired her foundation dogs in Florence, Italy (Volpino Italiano).
Note - Small black, brown, blue and grey Spitz dogs were a speciality of breeders in the Mannheim area of Germany in the 1870’s - (classes provided for under 10lb Poms at British dog shows by 1886). These dogs (25 - 30cm – but some smaller) were very carefully developed (while also improving temperament) in Germany from pre-existing small Spitz dogs averaging 30- 35cms.* A typical Volpino Italiano has averaged 25 – 30cms in height for at least 2000 years – see page on this web site regarding their breed history. Could this explain why Poms sometimes have a tendency to revert back to the 25 -35cm size – comparable to a Klein or Mittelspitz or Volpino?
There is no significance in Pom history concerning the date 1870!
So many breed books, articles and web sites incorrectly state either the Pomeranian was first recognised by the KC in 1870 or in this year it was first known in England. The Kennel Club was founded in 1873 – it’s on the KC logo – and Pomeranians (by that name not Spitz Dog) were one of 40 breeds ‘recognised’ by the KC in 1873. British owned Pomeranians appear in literature and newspapers as of 1760. Additionally there are detailed records of Pomeranians exhibited at pre- KC dog shows as of 1863.
Unregistered dogs could be KC registered at any time. Many early show dogs had no known breeder or pedigree. The records of some pre-KC shows 1859-1873 were recorded in the KC’s first Stud Book 1874 however non KC regulated shows after 1873 were not recorded.
The establishment of The Pomeranian Club in 1891 & Ladies Kennel Association in 1894 is significant as both clubs encouraged women to attend dog shows – the Pom Club & LKA were officially registered by the KC August 7th 1894.
The modern spelling of Crufts (after 1945) is used in this directory rather than Cruft’s as it was called in this era.
Please note - this directory only states the debut appearance of people - most continued showing for many years and bred a lot more dogs than are mentioned here.

Albert Edward ‘Bertie’ Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) and family –Br – Sandringham Kennel
The King’s interest in the breed pre-dates his mother’s by several years. By 1885 he had acquired a ‘fine looking’ Spitz in Germany, called Tottie, and in 1889 she was bred to the Hon. Mrs North’s dog Uncas producing two small black puppies Tiny and Tim. Tottie and Uncas’s next litter produced a very small reddish brown dog - he died young. Tottie was black with white on her paws and ‘shirt front’. Around 1891 he brought back from Bad Homburg Germany a small black (4lb) dog called Blackie. His daughter Princess Victoria claimed him as her own and later acquired a black puppy bred by Mary Drew the daughter of Prime Minister Gladstone. Mrs Drew’s German bred black bitch Fussy was the dam and the sire was Mr Gladstone’s black dog Petz the Great – imported from Bad Schwalbach in Germany. Although there is no record any of their Poms were exhibited many other breeds of dogs from the Sandringham kennel were often seen at dog shows. ‘Bertie’ was Patron of the Kennel Club as of its foundation in 1873. HRH Queen Elizabeth II now owns the 'Sandringham' kennel name.

He interested himself in Pomeranians as early as 1892, when judging at Munich. On his return journey, visiting Stuttgart and Mannheim, he purchased three specimens.

The Kennel Club: A History and Record of Its Work by Edward W. Jacquet 1905
Mr Jacquet was the Secretary of the Kennel Club for many years.
The Pomeranian by G.M. Hicks M.A. 1906 – Interesting views about early breed history but clearly in awe of Mr Kilburn Scott and his theories.
The Popular Pomeranian by Mrs E Parker 1928 1st Edition – Mrs Parker was the Hon. Secretary of The Pomeranian Club for many years. Breeder of the famous orange dog Ch Mars and several blue Pomeranians. Her work suffered to some degree from editing and re-writing by Miss Wilson (Dara) for the 2nd and final edition.

Dog Shows and Doggy People by Charles Lane 1902
Toy Dogs and Their Ancestors by Hon Mrs Lytton (Lady Wentworth) 1911 – A personal favourite of mine with an excellent account of breed history
Show Pomeranians by Lilla Ives 1911 also recommend 2nd & 3rd edition. The 4th edition – heavily edited by Mrs Thomson (Lochryan) – omits important information about breed development but unfortunately left untouched Ives’ account of pre-KC era history - the only weak point in an otherwise good read. Ives incorrectly claimed the KC provided classes for Poms in 1871 after recognising the breed in 1870 (three years before the KC existed) – followed by some extraordinary (and unsubstantiated) views about the origin of the breed and the effects of change of climate on size.
