Pomsky History

The Pomsky, also referred to as the Pomeranian Husky or the Husky Pom, is a new, rare, and highly popular designer hybrid breed that originated in the United States in 2009.  A cross between a purebred Pomeranian and a purebred Siberian Husky, the Pomsky attributes its worldwide popularity to its wolf-like appearance, affectionate nature and loyal personality. As a modern designer Breed, the Pomsky doesn’t have much history. We can take a look back at the history of the Pomeranian and the Siberian Husky parent breeds in order to better understand the Pomsky designer breed.  

The Pomeranian, also known as the Pom or Loulou de Pomeranie, is the smallest member of the ancient Spitz family. A sled dog from the Arctic region, the Spitz was a hardworking, strong, resilient and much bigger dog. The Pomeranian ancestor made its way from the Arctic to Pomerania (now part of Poland and Germany) where it was bred down in size and given a new name - Pomeranian. From Pomerania across Europe and the United States, the Pomeranian would know a life of luxury as a companion pet among aristocrats, nobles, and royal families. During her reign, Queen Victoria, a great fan of the breed, managed to breed the Pomeranian size down by half and is responsible for creating the tiny-sized adorable Pomeranian of today.  

The Siberian Husky is believed to be one of the oldest dog breeds in the world – if not the oldest. A strong and resilient working dog from Siberia, the Siberian Husky was raised by the Chukchi tribe as a guard dog, a companion pet and a sled dog. The Siberian Huskies were brought to Alaska to participate in sled races and, winning race after race, they soon came into public attention. From Alaska the Huskies soon spread across the world as both loving companion pets and strong working dogs. Today, the Siberian Husky is the most popular breed in North America. You can catch them as famous stars in movies and television shows and remarkable champions in canine shows and sports.
