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 South Dakota?
South Dakota is a great state for traveling with your dog and has strong animal welfare laws. Though it has some room to grow, South Dakota ranks pretty well for dog-friendliness.
We evaluated two major studies to understand how each state accommodates pets. Both studies surveyed all 50 states and ranked them for pet-friendly factors like access to pet care and services, animal cruelty laws, dog parks, outdoor spaces, and more.
The first was conducted by an animal welfare group called Pawsafe. Pawsafe ranked South Dakota as the 23rd most pet-friendly state. In this study, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
The second study comes from a safety review site called Safewise. They had a harsher view of South Dakota and ranked the state as 38th most pet-friendly in the country.
But if we put these two studies together, South Dakota ranks pretty well in the middle of the pack.
