The Pomsky is a goofy and smart dog. These dogs love being the center of attention. Seriously, they were made for the spotlight! A Pomsky is a hybrid dog, a mix between a Pomeranian and a Siberian Husky. Below is some more information that’ll help you decide if the Pomsky is the right dog for you.
The size of a Pomsky is difficult to determine since they are a mixed breed. The adult range can vary greatly. They can be as small as a Pomeranian or as big as a Husky. Typically Pomskies end up being a medium sized dog weighing around 20-30 pounds.
A Pomsky should have a thick double coat that they inherit from their parents. They are very tolerant of cold temperatures. They come in a wide variety of colors but are often seen to have similar colors and markings as the Husky. Pomskies can be stubborn and hard to train, but with enough training they will learn their commands. These are good dogs for families, Pomskies are very playful and make great companions for children. They adapt well to a variety of living conditions, they are suited for apartment living as well as house living. If you’re looking for a quiet breed the Pomsky may not be for you. They tend to be vocal like Huskies and Pomeranians.
Pomskies have a beautiful fluffy coat that requires weekly maintenance. To maintain their coat they should be brushed weekly, this removes the dead undercoat and stops the fur from shedding onto your floors. Having your Pomsky on a regular grooming schedule will significantly reduce shedding and keep their coat healthy. Aside from bushing their coat their nails will need to be cut and the teeth cleaned. This can be done at home or at the groomers. It’s important to get a Pomsky used desensitized to the grooming process to keep their stress levels low. You should start getting your puppy used to being brushed early on and play with their feet to get them used to having their nails cut. Your groomer will love you for that!
