The Pomsky is a very beautiful hybrid dog, the latest “designer dog”, becoming more popular than other loved hybrids such as the Labradoodle, the Golden Doodle or the Buggs. A hybrid dog is the result of cross-breeding- two different pure breeds that are similar in size and structure are mixed together. In this case, the Pomsky resulted by mixing a Pomeranian with a Husky.
Features of a Pomsky
Creating a hybrid dog is not an exact science, as you never know what the end result will be. Some Pomskies are more similar to a Husky, while others to a Pomeranian.
The Pomsky has pointy ears and muzzle and its tail will usually be curled over its back. As the breeds that created the hybrid are very active, the Pomsky, needs a lot of exercise: they need to be walked and played with on a daily basis. Not doing so might lead to behavioral problems.
As they have an Arctic descent, their fur is very thick, a so called double coat. Because of this, they are known shedders. Brushing their coats several times a week takes care of this problem and it also prevents tangles. They require a diet rich in protein, but also in veggies and whole grains, a diet suited for a highly active dog.
If you’re wondering whether the Pomsky would make a good pet, the answer is yes. They are very sociable and behave well in a house full of people or other dogs. They are also very good with children.
Pomskies are very beautiful and make for great companions. If you’re considering getting a pet, a Pomsky might suit you well. Would you make a Pomsky your pet?
