Although only an officially recognized breed since 1912, the Pomeranian breed was developed by Northern German farmers of Pomerania as early as 1500. Once popular as a market goose throughout Europe, today there are few breeders of the Historical Pomeranian goose. In their native Germany, Pomeranian Geese are a "utilitarian goose breed" represented white, grey, saddleback buff, and saddleback grey varieties. The American Saddleback Pomeranian is the accepted variety of this breed in the USA, and is recognised by the American Poultry Association. Its head, back, and flanks are light grey or beige. The Pomeranian is the only descendant of the Greylag goose specifically bred for a single-lobed paunch. In the USA these geese often have two lobes nonetheless, due to genetic variation and in-breeding. Pomeranian Geese entered the APA's Standard of Perfection in 1977 as Saddleback Pomeranian and are standardised in Gray and Buff.
