My experience from beginning to delivery was great. Communication was there anytime I needed information & coordination in getting my new dog.The breeder did a fine job with my Pomsky he was in great health when he arrived and he has adjusted very well, with a wonderful disposition. I have a very happy puppy who is eating Nutri Source puppy can food.I’m also very impressed with the Puppy Spot App it’s been very helpful.
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 Colorado?
Colorado, like the land itself, has a lot of highs and lows when it comes to dog-friendliness.
Two very different studies on pet safety
Pawsafe surprisingly ranks the state as the 8th least pet-friendly in the country. The study evaluates several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. While this ranking is low, there are few areas where the state excels. Pawsafe ranked Colorado 3rd for animal welfare laws and 4th for available pet services.
Safewise conducted a similar study and came to a much different conclusion. In their analysis, they found Colorado to be the 14th most pet-friendly state. Safewise notes that only 25% of rentals in Colorado are pet-friendly, which may be why Pawsafe ranked Colorado so low.
Are cities in Colorado pet-friendly?
A WalletHub study ranked the nation’s 100 largest cities for their performance with pet-friendly criteria. In their study, two Colorado cities were among the top 20 pet-friendly cities!
The highest-ranking city was Denver, which ranked 16th. This ranking is driven by a 7th position for pet health and wellness.
SmartAsset has a similar study in which they rank the largest cities by pet-friendliness. They ranked Denver 10th for pet-friendliness. Their study found the city to have 250 dog-friendly shopping centers, among the highest in the country.
A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study shows that Denver has the 24th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.8 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
The city of Aurora, right next to Denver, has the 45th most dog parks per capita, with 1.1 per 100,000 residents.
Colorado Springs ranked 18th overall in the WalletHub study. The city scored well for pet budget and outdoor pet-friendliness.

A few more pet-friendly statistics for Colorado
