Well there is only one official pomeranian breed. Now with that said the AKC standard for a pomerainian is 3-6 pounds. It is not uncommon for them to be a little above that and I have seen them MUCH above that. The biggest problem with poms is their popularity. The more popular a breed gets the worse it is for the dogs because puppy mills and backyard breeders and everyone that happens to have a boy and a girl decide they should breed and make some money.
Most learn that to keep happy healthy dogs and have puppies you dont make money. So those obsessed with making money dont take the precautions and care enough to research health and breed characteristics. So you many very well have a pom that is just oversized.
While he might not be exactly what you were picturing im sure it makes him no less a loving sweet companion.
Contact me if you would like more info, I have been in the pom clubs and health foundations for 20+yrs.
