POMSKY

If you have ever laid eyes on a Pomsky, you are sure to believe that it is the “perfect pooch.” This “breed” derives its look from a large and stunning Siberian husky mother and a fuzz ball, Pomeranian father.

These adorable puppies grow to be small or medium sized dogs. They come in almost 20 variations of color, from white, brown, grey to reddish brown. Hence, before committing to a Pomsky, there is a lot you need to know.

A huge personality

Dogs are personable creatures, but imagine the outgoing personalities of a husky and a Pomeranian merged. They are fun-loving and emotional like no other breed, and they love attention.  

As a breed

 

Pomskies are not yet recognized as a breed by the American Kennel Club. This can attribute to the fact that we don’t know much about them, such as their genetic medical conditions, their characteristics, and temperaments. However, for the time being, you can rely on the breeder to tell you about a pomsky’s mother and father’s attitude and medical condition.

Environment

If you are a puppy parent, who lives in a warmer area all you have to do is keep an eye out any signs of overheating from your new furball. Staying indoors and conducting indoor activities is one way of keeping your pet from overheating.

Grooming

They are competition

Pomsky puppies are giving the adorable golden retrievers and German shepherd puppies a run for their cuddles! This breed is gaining popularity and is here to stay.
