What sort of dog is a Pomsky? The name says it all: a cross between a Pomeranian and a Siberian Husky, a concentrated bundle of adorable vivacity that will make you fall in love with it with one glance and a lick. Want to know more about this breed?
The origins of this canine race are very recent, a cross breeding of a female Siberian Husky with a Pomeranian male. Although it has been the object of criticism from those who disagree with what might be considered designer cross-breeding, Pomskies are the dream dog everyone wants!
Aesthetically speaking it is a rarity. Pomskies are small and furry with the ice blue eyes of the Husky but the tiny soft and fluffy body of a Pomeranian. You will not see many of them in town and if you want to get one, make sure you choose the one that best suits you. Pomskies are somewhat unpredictable and remember… their mothers are Huskies.
It is hard to know what sort of temperament the puppy will have inherited from its racially diverse parents. Most are highly intelligent, playful and energetic. In the best of cases you will have a lovely, obedient and reliable Siberian Husky-type of dog, in the worst case a very protective and jealous one… but don’t worry, to tone down that side of its character all you need is a few months of careful training.
Pomskies are great for childless couples, or even for men living alone. They are less ideal for families as they need a lot of attention, are constantly active and cannot be left alone for more than 10 minutes at a time. They also need to be out of doors quite a bit. They’re actually just like children!
Our canine model, Frankie, is wearing a Ferplast Ergocomfort collar. He lives in London and is a Pomsky puppy. When he is not with his dog-sitter, Frankie goes to the office with dad, where everyone takes turns playing with him, brushing his thick coat, taking him for walks in the park, updating his Instagram profile or just cuddling him. This is exactly what a dog like this one requires!
We love Pomskies, but be aware that although they may look like a stuffed animal, they are not. They need a great deal of attention!
