The Pomsky is a crossbreed between the Pomeranian and the Siberian Husky. In addition, this doggo goes by a couple of other nicknames, such as the Pom Husky or the Husky Pom. Initially bred in 2009 in the United States, this hybrid was developed as a companion dog. Today, the Pomsky is still a great family companion dog. For example, they’re intelligent, playful, and stubborn.

There’s a lot to love about this designer dog. For instance, Pomsky dogs are loyal and affectionate with their family members. In addition, they’re great with young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, as with all dog breeds, this hybrid needs early socialization and training. They might be wary or shy at first upon meeting strangers or other dogs. In addition, they’re an excellent watchdog. So, they’ll bark at newcomers to alert you. Not to mention, thanks to the Husky parent, the Pomsky is vocal anyway. Training will nip this unwanted behavior in the bud. However, they can be stubborn. So, you can hire a professional dog trainer to help you out if needed.

Pomsky – A Playful Dog

Pomsky dogs are medium-sized, with males being slightly bigger than females. For example, males can grow to be about 12 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 24 and 30 pounds. On the other hand, females can grow to be about ten to 13 inches tall and weigh between 20 to 26 pounds. This mixed breed can look like either parent breed when it comes to appearance. However, they’ll most likely have a thick, medium to long coat. You’ll want to bring them to the professional grooming salon often. Also, they’ll shed a moderate amount. So, be sure to brush their coat at least once every day.

Finally, the Pomsky has moderate energy levels. They’ll need a bigger house with a fenced-in yard to comfortably live in instead of an apartment. This mixed breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 15 years with proper care.
