Pomapoo Characteristics

The Pomapoo is a hybrid mix between a Pomeranian and a Toy Poodle. They have funny little open faces and soft, snuggly fur. Both of their parent breeds give them intelligence, playfulness, and adaptability. Early obedience training and socialization ensure these dogs are a hit with the family and at the dog park.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

Typically found with a brown, black, or white coat and stands around 8-10 inches at the shoulder, the Pomapoo is a pint-sized breed with a much larger personality. A breed known by many names, the Pomapoo can also be referred to as the Pooranian, Pompoo, and Pomeroodle.

Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Pomapoo was originally bred as a companion dog for people with allergies to animals. The Pomapoo was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Pomeranian or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding. It is also important to note that this breed will not necessarily inherit the hypoallergenic coat of its poodle parent, so be sure to research your breeder to make sure.

Pomapoos may be at risk for the dental issues that plague many small dogs. But just be sure you bring them to the vet regularly and keep their teeth clean. 

Pomapoos are ideal for apartment living and, while they love to play, they don’t need a ton of space to get their energy out. They’re wonderfully friendly and inquisitive and can be affectionate companions for the entire family, or an individual owner.

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
