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.
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 Minnesota?
Minnesota has some excellent dog-friendly accommodations and services and is well on its way to becoming one of the more pet-friendly states. It’s a great place to own a dog!
We evaluated scores across two primary studies to get accurate state rankings. Both studies ranked states according to various pet-friendly criteria like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks.
The first study, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Minnesota as 14th most pet-friendly state. This includes a good ranking for its animal welfare laws which evaluate laws against abuse, neglect and fighting.
Safewise, a national safety evaluator, ranked Minnesota as the 26th most pet-friendly state. A little lower than Pawsafe, but still doing pretty well comparatively.
Combining these two studies together puts Minnesota towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
