PuppySpot was a great help with finding our new furry family member! They were helpful and patient with all the questions I kept bombarding them with. The information on the app and online was also helpful and very user friendly. Our puppy was looked after during his travels here and came right to our door. I definitely recommend PuppySpot!
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.
