#3 U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt owned a Pomeranian.

Teddy Roosevelt owned lots of animals including parrots, ponies, pigs, rabbits, cats, and many dogs. One of these dogs was a Pomeranian named Gem. Not much is known about Gem, but in a letter to his son, Kermit, Roosevelt described having to give the dog to a family member. "Mother is going to present Gem to Uncle Will," Roosevelt wrote. "Gem is really a very nice small bow-wow, but Mother found that in this case possession was less attractive than pursuit. When she takes him out walking he carries her along as if she was a Roman chariot. She thinks that Uncle Will or Eda can anchor him."
