Years ago, we had a Pomeranian that weighed in at 14 lbs, around twice what he should have. Our vet explained that there are occasionally throwbacks to the larger German Spitz varieties they were bred from. Maybe a stray gene or two from the pitbull and unknown admix combined with some latent size genes form the spitz side.
