Pomskies are a crossbreed between a Pomeranian and a Siberian Husky. Since the first born Pomsky in 2009, this designer mixed breed has been gaining in popularity with dog lovers across the United States and throughout the world as breeders continue to achieve the perfect mix. Being a descendent of two highly active parents, Pomskies have a lot of energy and require a lot of exercise. These highly intelligent dogs make for great companions, though their double coat with longer hair means they aren't the best for dog owners with allergies.
Appearance and Grooming
The Pomsky is a small/medium-sized dog with a beautiful silky coat that many dog lovers find endearing. Though, because of their thick coat they have the tendency to shed quite a bit. Regular brushing will reduce shedding, especially during the warmer months, when shedding is at its peak. Their colors vary from white, black and grey, similar to their Husky ancestors.
They have a friendly and playful nature that requires a moderate amount of attention. They are very loyal and eager to please and therefore, don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time as they can become very bored and may show signs of aggression.
Family and Companionship
It can be hard to predict what personality characteristics a Pomeranian Husky mix will inherit, and so this breed is best suited for households made up of adults and/or older children. They have a highly energetic personality and will thrive with an active family who enjoys the outdoors. Because of their generally small size this breed is adaptable to living in an apartment or in a larger home.
These lively puppies need a lot of mental stimulation and exercise. They are an active breed that adapts well to its owners routine. They require a short to moderate walk along with active playtime each day. If given enough proper exercise, this small and mighty dog can often be athletic enough to participate in dog sports as agility, obedience and rally.
Training and Socialization
Pomskies are intelligent with a streak of independence, which may require more patience than most dogs. This can prove to be quite challenging for even the most experienced owner. Training and socialization is as important for the dog as it is its owner and should begin at a very early age.

<p>We got crimson, formerly known as Lance when we adopted him from Premiere pups in November of 2016. We had him flown from Ohio to Kansas and he did great in the flight. He is an amazing dog as you can see with my newborn daughter. We were a little nervous only because he has so much energy at times and likes to be in the middle of everything but he is super sweet with her and very protective. He is a playful, gentle, well trained dog. We have NO health issues, problems or complaints from this company. I will be getting more from them in the future. Making things transition smoothly from one state to another and answering ALL of our questions back then made our decision so easy. Thank you Premiere Pups for being honest, kind and loyal. You put the dogs first and that is AMAZING!!!! Crimson has been the best addition. 6 years down and many more to go with him!!!!</p>
We purchased Koda (formerly named Sonic) in December 2020. Premier pups could not have made the process of getting Koda any easier. They were very quick to respond with questions and stayed involved even after we got him. As for Koda, he’s the sweetest puppy ever! He easily adapted to our home and has been great with any dog he encounters. He is full of energy at times, but also knows how to take a good nap. We couldn’t be happier- I wish we got one of his siblings too!! I highly recommend premier pups
We bought Sawyer in April 2020. (His original given name was Shiloh). he has been healthy since then. Premier Pups gave us a little guy that we wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. We absolutely love Sawyer. He has become a part of our family and stolen our hearts. He is so playful with a great temperament. He is also completely spoiled (we make dinner for him every night and he loves vanilla ice cream for dessert.) I would say he has us definitely wrapped around his paws ??! Thank you Premier Pups for Sawyer!
I bought Meela about 3 years ago. Best dog I have ever had. I will be getting another Pomsky soon. Premier Pups is fantastic.
My pomsky Jagger turned one last weekend and I couldn’t be happier with the breed his disposition and his ability to be trained. I picked him up from the VIP service at SNA airport in so California and fell in love with the tiny little puppy. He’s like Velcro to me goes everywhere I go and I love the breed 5 people a day ask me what breed and where I got him. Premier Pups made the purchase process easy and affordable. They also gave great vet care with transition medication and food for a seamless transition from the Midwest. I would give them 11 stars out of 10 because they went above and beyond to make sure they provided the perfect puppy for me!
This is my gorgeous girl, Calla. Born October 22nd, she’ll be 2 years old soon and she is the most loving, sweetest, silliest girl ever. I have been so blessed to have her in my life, I hope to someday welcome another Premier Pup into our family.
We picked Maddux up Fall of 2018. He is our first family dog and we couldn’t be happier. It took 19 years to talk my husband into getting a puppy. I started looking at Pomskys and showing him pictures and he started to soften to the idea. I was on this site scrolling through pictures and came across a little puppy named Flint. He said that is the cutest puppy and after a couple of days, we had ourselves a puppy. We had some confusion at the time of pickup but the staff did everything they could to make it right. Maddux is an amazing dog and he fits in perfectly with the family! I would recommend Premier Pups. The only regret is that didn’t ask for pictures of his parents.
We adopted Jax (Now Runner) from this wonderful place just yesterday. His flight to us was amazing and he gets along well with everyone in our family. Thank you primer pups!
