Well suited for apartment life due to its small stature, the Pomsky is a dog that can never get enough attention and returns all the love it receives. The Pomsky was created as a designer breed mix between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian and has earned much popularity with dog lovers. However, it is important to research the unique needs of the Pomsky before rushing out and purchasing one.
A recent entry into the canine world, Pomsky's have been bred purposely for less than ten years and are not currently recognized by the AKC. Pomsky's are fun-loving, quirky teacup-sized dogs that thrive in family environments and are great with kids and other animals.
Standing between 10-15 inches tall and weighing between 7-38 pounds, the Pomsky has the beautiful coat and eyes of a Siberian Husky while matching the stature of a Pomeranian. However, since the Pomsky is such a new breed, each litter produces puppies of somewhat unpredictable size and coat. Some come with a white coat, some come with blue eyes, and some with Heterochromia (two different colored eyes). If you're looking for a dog you know will stay below a certain weight or look a certain way, you may be better off looking to breeds that are more established and can be bred more consistently.
The Pomsky's thick coat makes it more tolerant of cold weather than most other kinds of lapdogs, which is an important item to consider depending on where you live. Pomskies are a trainable breed, but they may inherit some stubbornness from the Siberian Husky half of their DNA, so they are best suited for experienced dog owners or those willing to commit to obedience training. Those hoping for a naturally calm, mild-tempered small dog would be wise to consider a Shih Tzu or Japanese Chin.
How dog-friendly is Alabama?
Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon!
Here’s what you should know about Alabama.
Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.
Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?
Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.
Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.
A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama
BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.
Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%.
What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama
Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period.
Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
