Aussiepom Puppies

An Aussiepom is a mix between an Australian Shepherd and a Pomeranian. This is a fairly recent crossbreed that’s been gaining popularity in the past few years. You may be wondering if one might be right for your family. Our guide to Aussiepom puppies will help you learn more.

Where To Get Aussiepom Puppies

If you choose to get an Aussiepom puppy from a breeder, it’s important to do lots of research before choosing one. Mixed breeds often show up in backyard breeding operations and puppy mills. While you might want to save a puppy or dog from this situation, the truth is it’s better for your money to go towards a breeder who cares about their dogs and the health of this mixed breed. Make sure your breeder is open and transparent with you about puppies, parents, and living conditions. Aussiepompuppies…

An Aussiepom mix does occasionally show up in either Pomeranian or Australian Shepherd rescue organizations. If you’re not sure you want a puppy, a rescue may be a great option for you to find an older dog! You may not get complete health screening information if you choose to rescue, so make sure to keep an eye out for symptoms of possible health problems.

The Cost

An Aussiepom puppy from a responsible breeder will cost you $1000-$1200. While this initial cost may seem steep, it’s a good sign you’ve found a responsible breeder. A cheap puppy may be a sign of a backyard breeder or puppy mill. In addition, a higher cost for a puppy usually incorporates costs related to their birth and care. A responsible breeder will also perform health screenings on their puppies and breeding pairs. This likely means lower vet costs for you down the line.

Appearance

While an Aussiepom has one of the many colorings of an Australian Shepherd, their coat will most likely resemble that of their fluffy Pomeranian parent. Since both Pomeranians and Australian Shepherds can have merle coloring, an Aussiepom has a strong chance to have some as well.

An Aussiepom is considered a small dog, resembling its Pomeranian parent that way. They usually get 11-17 inches tall at the shoulder and only weigh 10-13 pounds. Thepuppybear…

Temperament

With proper socialization and training, an Aussiepom makes a great family companion. The mix is reportedly very tolerant of children, though it’s important to supervise any interaction between kids and your dog. They can get along well with other dogs and pets if introduced slowly. While they may bark at strangers, it’s more likely they’ll lick them, not bite them, when they’ve guaranteed safety.

An Aussiepom is a mix of two intelligent breeds. This will make training easy. We recommend treating it like a game and staying positive. Yelling and negative reinforcement may have a lasting effect on this emotionally sensitive breed.

Aussiepoms are very loyal to their families. They also don’t like being left alone. If alone for long periods without mental stimulation, they may develop separation anxiety or destructive behavior. It’s possible an Aussiepom will bond more closely with 1-2 family members than the others, spending most of their time with their selected people.

Even though they’re smaller than Australian Shepherds, this high-energy breed will still need some space. They thrive when provided with a well-fenced yard. Since Australian Shepherds thrive on tasks and jobs, it’s best to provide the same for an Aussiepom. Your Aussiepom will also need regular mental stimulation. Toby…

Aussiepom Puppies – Veterinary Needs

With Aussiepoms, the greatest health risks occur in the offspring of two merle-colored parents. Double-merle genes are associated primarily with a higher likelihood of eye defects and deafness. Even without double-merle genes, an Aussiepom may inherit any number of health issues from both parent breeds. These include conditions as minor as ear infections and cataracts and as major as patellar luxation, hip, and elbow dysplasia. A responsible breeder will perform health screenings on the puppies and their parents, making these issues less likely. However, we still encourage you to pay attention to possible symptoms. Regular visits to your vet should also help with early detection and treatment.

After buying or rescuing your Aussiepom puppy, you should take them to the vet every three weeks for the first few months. Your vet will be able to see whether your puppy is growing up healthy. In addition, these initial vet visits are important for a series of puppy vaccinations. These include shots against the potentially deadly rabies, distemper, and parvovirus. Check out our puppy vaccine schedule here. Inky…

Diet

Aussiepoms can become fussy eaters if they get used to human food early. If you and your vet have decided a home-cooked diet is best for them, this shouldn’t present an issue. However, if you prefer to feed them kibble, this may cause issues if they’ve learned to love human food first.

Like with any dog breed, it’s important to take an Aussiepom’s weight, age, and overall health into account before choosing a food. A vet or a certified pet nutritionist should be able to help you with this process. With an Aussiepom, you’ll want to pick a food specifically for small dogs. In addition, it’s important to choose a diet which will support their high energy levels.

Make sure to do your research if you think a raw diet or a grain-free diet would be the best option for your pup. There have been some risks associated with both. Realhousedogs…

Grooming

Aussiepoms have fluffy, medium-length coats. Both parent breeds have double coats, meaning an Aussiepom will shed. Daily brushing will help cut down on shed hair, mats, and tangles. Since they can tangle and pick up debris easily, it’s important to check regularly for both. Brush an Aussiepom daily. This is a dog with a high-maintenance coat, and yours may need professional grooming help.

Before a bath, check an Aussiepom for mats on their belly, in their armpits, behind their ears, and under their tails. Use both shampoo and conditioner while bathing. Aussiepoms do best with monthly baths.

Since Aussiepoms have narrow jaws, it’s important to brush their teeth daily. Check their ears regularly for signs of debris and wax buildup. Unless you’re regularly walking your Aussiepom on hard surfaces, you should be trimming their nails every couple of weeks.
