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 Mississippi?
Mississippi has a ton of pet owners and dog lovers in the state! But a few factors consistently put Mississippi in the bottom or middle of the pack compared to the most pet-friendly states. The main issue is Mississippi’s somewhat lax approach to animal welfare laws.
Animal advocacy and shelter group Pawsafe ranks Mississippi 48th overall for pet-friendliness. Definitely some room for improvement!
They arrived at their state ranking through a study evaluating each of the 50 states by important factors like animal cruelty restrictions, pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. As we mentioned, the main issue for Mississippi is its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
A separate study by review site Safewise ranks Mississippi as 32nd. A little bit better! However, if we combine the two studies, Mississippi still ranks towards the bottom of the pack.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Mississippi
Mississippi saved 41,290 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 5,417 animals were killed over this same period.
Nineteen out of 64 of the animal shelters within Mississippi are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 80%. This is well short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see some improvement in these numbers in the coming years!
