Standard Pomeranian Size
When people wonder about accurate Pomeranian size and comparison, you will find that many sources only list the standards of the AKC.
While this is an excellent, reputable and well recognized kennel club, their standards are not the only accepted nor expected size standards. Additionally, many Poms fall outside of what the standard calls for.
If you look at the world as a whole, their are 4 top canine clubs that dominate the standards of purebreds:
- The AKC
- The KC
- The CKC (Canadian Kennel Club)
- The FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale)
According to the AKC (American Kennel Club), the range for the Pomeranian breed standard is 3 - 7 lbs ( 1.36 - 3.175 kg). This is for a full size Pomeranian that is done growing (after age 1). Some Poms will weigh less than this and some will weigh more. There are reasons for both cases....And we will discuss that.
