The Pomsky is a cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian and is a designer dog breed. It is a relatively new breed that gains popularity across North America and Europe.
Pomsky puppies have soft and long coat and a height between 10 to 15 inches and a weight of 20-30 pounds, which depends mostly on their parents’ size. Their colors vary from white, black and grey, similar to their Huskey predecessors.
Pomsky’s are very smart, loving and playful and they need regular play to avoid becoming bored as they tend to act by chewing up. They shed a lot and they need to be regularly groomed. They love to dig, so they have to be properly trained. Their temperament depends on their parents genetic contribution. Generally, they tend to be protective like Poms and very good family dogs like Huskies.
They are playful and gentle with children and very lively, that’s why they are suitable for families with older children. They tend to be quiet, learn quickly and love to play. They are energetic small breed that requires daily exercises and play.
They fit with small houses, apartments or houses that have yards. They don’t like to be left alone for long periods as they can become very bored, they will start barking excessively and will show signs of aggression.
They should be fed with high quality food in order to ensure all their nutritional needs in order to be healthy.
They are prone to eye diseases such Cataracts or Corneal Distrophy, to dental diseases such buildup of plaque like Pomeranian and they need regular dental check-ups. Since the breed is so new, not much is known about any common Pomsky health conditions. Keep in mind, though, that as is common with most mixed breeds, any hereditary health conditions that shows up in either the Pomeranian (such as cataracts or skin problems) or the Husky (like eye problems) may show up in your Pomsky, as well. Their lifespan is between 13 and 15 years.
Please be aware the Husky breed is prone to seizures.
