What is the heaviest pure breed pomeranian?

I have a huge female pure breed pomeranian. I want to know how much did the heaviest pomeranian weigh?

Same thing I just said in your other question:

By breed standard a Pomeranian should be 7 pounds or less. I'm not sure what you are asking. Anything above that would be a bad example of the breed.

since they are of spitz origin.. not uncommon for poorly bred examples to be as much as 30 some pounds.

It is not unusual for Pomeranians to weigh into the teens.

Pomeranians vary in type, some revert more towards the Spitz type (German Spitz) and backyard breeders tend to breed larger Pomeranians, larger bitches produce larger litters, more money in their pocket.

One of my Pomeranians is 16 pounds. She is not the largest Pomeranian I know by any means.
We will have a Pomeranian gathering this weekend witha bout 100+ Pomeranians. More of them will be of the Spitz type then the show type.

Here is a description from Second Chance Pomeranian rescue regarding size-

SIZE: The correct weight for a Pomeranian is 3-7 pounds. The Poms we see in Rescue are generally larger (8-12 pounds) and sometimes much larger; I have seen them up to 18 pounds, and have heard of 25-pounders. This is because Poms were bred down in size during the Victorian period and frequently, with poor breeding, will revert. Puppy millers prefer the larger females, since they produce bigger litters.

I dog-sat for a 25 pound Pom a few years ago-VERY pretty dog. The owners paid a fortune for this "King Pomeranian" that was so rare. Sad what puppymills get away with.
