About the Pomsky: The Pomeranian Husky Mix
A Pomsky is a cross breed dog between a Siberian husky and a Pomeranian. It is one of the cutest cross breeds amongst dogs and nowadays it has gained immense popularity. In fact, it is called a ‘designer dog’, which is being sold for $1,000 to up to $6,000.
The reason why they have received so much hype is because Pomskies got a shape and color of a Husky but a size of a Pomeranian or slightly taller; hence they look very beautiful. In addition to that, they are really loving, playful and smart dogs that everybody starts loving and caring for, so very dearly.
The Pomsky Saga:
The physical appearance of a Pomsky is still capricious, because various breeders have seen different results. In fact, the breeders are still trying to get a perfect Pomsky, which would have a look of a Pomeranian but a personality of a Husky. Nevertheless, these designer dogs are getting well-known in North American as well as some European countries. In the other parts of the world, they have not been introduced yet.
Pomerania- Husky Mix:
In order to get a Pomsky, breeders do a crossing between a male Pomeranian and a female Husky. This is mainly because if the crossing is done between a female Pomeranian and a male Husky then it might get a little difficult for the female Pomeranian to carry the heavy weight of the babies who might adopt physical features of their father.
The Pomeranians are really enthusiastic dogs who are always full of energy. They bark a lot. They want to play all the time; hence, require long hours of exercise. On the other hand, they are also very intelligent and that is the reason why they are easily trained during their younger days.
The Siberian huskies are ‘sled dogs’ that are best at pulling sleds. They are strong, energetic and playful dogs who always want to do something. Exercising is, therefore, really important for them also, otherwise they will get bored easily. Huskies are also very intelligent, but they are also very mischievous; hence you will often find them looking for different things. These dogs stay quiet mostly.
The Lovable Breed:
Pomskies can be well-trained when they are young because they are highly smart and witty. The reward based training is most suitable for them. Nevertheless, you might counter the problem of ‘small dog syndrome’ which they can inherit from a Pomeranian. This problem can be avoided if you use assertive and calm style of leadership.
The weight of a Pomsky is between 20 to 30 pounds which is more than a Pomeranian, but less than a Husky. On the other hand, the temperament of a Pomsky is really easy-going; you will hardly have any issues with them. When young, Pomskies can be really energetic and jumpy all the time in front of everyone. They can get along with other dogs well, only a few cases might be exceptional. These dogs can live up to 13 to 15 years and are a real way to have around.
