Why The Pomsky Is One of America’s Favorite Dog Breeds

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

As Pomeranians and Huskies both love cold climates, it is a given that your pomsky would prefer it. But, pomskies can also adapt to warmer climates and do just fine. 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.

A Few Facts

75/25 - 50/50 Pomsky + Purebred Siberian husky.

    The Mother of the Pomsky should always be husky as it is dangerous for a Pomeranian female to carry puppies of such a large breed.

Grooming

If you are adopting a pomsky, you are in for a lifetime of frequent visits to the groomers. Better find some memberships or coupons to help you. They shed quite a bit on a regular basis and summertime increases this to 7 brushing sessions from 3-4 a week.

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.
