Miniaturised Larger Breeds
Pomeranian and Samoyed
The Toy Group contains two breeds that were miniaturized from larger breeds. These are the Pomeranian which is the smallest member of the Spitz family and the Italian Greyhound which is the smallest of the Sight Hounds family and resembles a Greyhound in miniature. Both these breeds compete in heir 'family' group under FCI Rules. However, as this is an Australian website, they appear here in the Toy Group.
