Pomsky dogs are a new breed of hybrid dog that is a cross between a Siberian Husky and Pomeranian. They’re one of the most popular designer breeds in the world, but they can be hard to find because they’ve only been around since 2012.
Pomskies are very friendly with people, other animals, and children. They also love attention from their humans which makes them easy to train. However, it should be noted that as puppies these dogs will chew on anything! Their owners need to provide them with chewing toys or risk losing shoes or furniture!
The Pomsky has all the best qualities of both parents: intelligence, friendliness and good looks! These traits make this pup an excellent pet for people of all ages. They are, however, very adaptable dogs and make good companions for people who live in apartments as well as those with bigger homes.

Pomsky dog breed is a new hybrid that was originally bred to resemble the wolf. Its popularity has exploded worldwide since it was first introduced in 2012 after its first appearance on the popular television show, The Price is Right. Pomsky dogs are first-generation hybrids resulting from the cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. They are one of the most sought-after designer breeds today because they embody all the best traits in both parents.
Pomskies have a very friendly disposition that makes them easy to train, especially for children. They are very intelligent dogs, so they can pick up on training quickly and easily!
These dogs shed more than most breeds, but it is still lower compared to other purebreds. Although their fur may be shorter than that of a Husky’s, their grooming needs are just as high because they still shed a lot. They need regular brushing and frequent trips to the groomers for haircuts and trims.
Their thick coat also makes them vulnerable to overheating, so their owners should make sure they are always protected from heat.
The Pomeranian parent adds the famous Pomsky cutting factor to this breed. This is simply a preference for appearance that comes after both breeds have been fully grown. The appearance is most commonly referred to as “teddy bear” and is used to describe a longer face and shorter-than-average legs.
Personalities & Temperament
Pomskies are very friendly and make excellent pets for families looking for one dog to accommodate all members. They love attention from their owners, but they do need to be watched when young because they can be destructive due to their curious nature.
Pomskies are generally healthy dogs, but there are some diseases they are more likely to be prone to than other breeds. For instance, they can suffer from eye problems because of their bulging eyes. Other issues include urinary problems, hip dysplasia, and allergies.
Pomskies are very friendly dogs that get along well with other people, children, and pets. They’re also very adaptable dogs that can easily get used to apartment life if necessary. And despite their small size, these aren’t the type of dogs that will stay in the backyard all day and only come inside when their owners call them. Instead, they’ll follow you around and wait for any opportunity to play and interact with the family!
Weight: 15-35 pounds.
Height: 8-15 inches.
Energy Level: High energy, but can adapt well to apartment living.
Age: Pomskies live up to an average of 14 years.
Breed creator: Deby Dixon (Silkenswift Kennel) who worked with two breeders to create this new breed.
Pomskies weigh between 15 and 35 pounds as adults, which means that they will need roughly about a cup of dog food each day. However, this amount can vary depending on the individual’s age, weight, metabolism, and activity level.
If you want to ensure your Pomsky’s digestive system is working at its best, then you should consider the ingredients that go into its food. You’ll want to find a high-quality dog food that has lots of high-quality proteins and healthy fat sources (i.e., flaxseed, salmon oil).
