They fancy the beach, dog parks, and any camping trip they can tag along on with their human family. Pomapoos are great family dogs. They form strong attachments with their humans, are excellent companion pets for kids, and are known to be generous in affection. Because of their tiny stature, these sweet dogs are best suited for families with older children who can play in a gentle manner with them.  Pomapoo puppies are tiny little jewel dogs.

Pomapoo puppies inherit the intelligence of both parent breeds which translates to smart dogs that are easy to train. Their eagerness to please coupled with their skills in learning make them excellent training students.

Pomapoo History

The Pomapoo is a fairly new designer Doodle Breed, a cross between a purebred Pomeranian and a Purebred Toy Poodle. The Pomeranian and Poodle are both ancient breeds with long histories as working dogs, loving companion pets, and show dogs. Thanks to their great popularity, they were crossed to create the perfect lapdog and companion pet that would inherit the intelligence, agility, sweet nature, and trainability of both parent breeds. As a new designer crossbreed, the Pomapoo doesn’t have a rich breed history. We can take a look at the history of the Poodle and Pomeranian parent breeds to gain a better understanding of the Pomapoo breed.  

The Pomeranian, also known as “Loulou de Pomeranie” and “Pom-Pom”, is the smallest member of the Spitz family and a highly popular purebred breed. The sweet, tiny Pomeranian dogs we’ve come to know and love today are descendants of a larger Spitz sled dog that originated in the Arctic region. The Pomeranian ancestors arrived in Pomerania (region of Germany and Poland) centuries ago and were met with admiration among the Pomeranian people. Bred down in size and renamed by the Pomeranian folk, these lovely dogs made their way from near the Baltic Sea all across Europe and onto the laps of kings and queens. Queen Victoria, one of the Pom-Pom’s biggest fans, bred the Pomeranians down in size by half through many generations and is believed to be responsible for the breed’s ever-growing popularity.  

The Poodle, also known as Caniche, Pudelin, and Pudel, is one of the most remarkable dog breeds in the world today. Hypoallergenic coat, high intelligence, great agility, and astonishing beauty, the Poodle is a renowned companion pet, show dog, and movie star. Originally from Germany, Poodles have known fame throughout Europe as well as Australia, Asia, and the United States. They have been named the most in-vogue breed of France, the fashionable pets of royalty, the great circus performers, and the most excellent companion pets. Famous with the traveling circus, Standard Poodles were bred down to a Miniature size for better handling and control, and later to a Toy size that would be met with adoring admiration. Poodles are the Einstein dogs of the canine world and the most popular companion pets in many countries.  

The Pomapoo breed is said to have originated during the 1980s and 1990s in North America and has since been recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club. The Pomapoo popularity steadily increased over time and they are now among the most favored toy-sized dogs.
