Pomeagle History

The Pomeagle is a medium-sized, long-haired, spitz-type dog that was originally developed as a working gundog. The Pomeagle is a medium sized, long-haired, spitz type that was developed for work as a gundog. The Pomeagles were developed by crossing the Newfoundland with a Pointer. The development of the Pomeagle dates back to the mid-1800s and originated in the East of England. The Newfoundland-Pom was bred during a period when many crosses between various spaniel-type dogs anddogs native to the British Isles were being developed. Many of these crosses were attempts to improve on existing types of sporting or utility dogs and to create new ones. The Pomeranian was one of these early attempts to combine the best features of the Pointer and the Newfoundland. The Pomeranian was bred by crossing a Pointer with a Spitz type dog, probably a Samoyed. The Pomeranian was very popular as a show and companion dog in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and the offspring of the Newfoundland-Pom were used as a working gundog. These dogs became known as the “Newfsetter”, “Pomeranian” or “Pom-Pointers”. The “Newfsetters” were crossed with various pointing breeds, including English Pointers and the German Shorthaired Pointer, and were very successful at game hunting.
