About the Breed

The Pomsky is a hybrid breed created by crossing a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. This small, fluffy dog has become increasingly popular due to its adorable appearance and good nature. Though not yet considered an official breed, the Pomsky can make an excellent companion for those looking for a friendly pet. Read on to learn more about this lovable pup, including its temperament, ideal owners, history, healthy weight range and important health checks. Temperament The Pomskys temperament is usually quite friendly and gentle. They are typically very sociable dogs who enjoy spending time with their family, both indoors and outdoors. Pomskies love playing with their owners and can often be quite active even in apartment living environments as long as they are given enough exercise. As they have been bred from sled dogs they are also known to have strong wanderlust instincts so it is important to ensure they are kept in a secure environment such as a backyard or courtyard when outside unsupervised. Ideal Owners Pomskies can make great family pets due to their outgoing personalities and loyal nature towards their owners. They require regular exercise but dont need as much space as some other breeds so do well in smaller living environments such as apartments or townhouses if given space outside of the home for playtime on occasion. Its also important that prospective owners have the time available to give this breed plenty of attention and stimulation they crave company! History The first recorded breeding of the Pomsky was in 2012 although there may have been earlier attempts at creating this hybrid breed before then too according to some accounts. This breed was created by purposefully crossing two different purebreds the Siberian Husky (known for its strength) with the smaller yet no less spirited Pomeranian (known for its intelligence). The result? A beautiful hybrid that combined both breeds desirable traits into one small package! Healthy Weight Range & Important Health Checks Pomskies typically weigh between 10-25lbs when fully grown which makes them small enough to live comfortably in most homes but still large enough that exercise wont be an issue either. As with any dog it is important that you keep your pomsky at a healthy weight obesity increases risk of joint problems and other health issues so regular vet check-ups should be scheduled every 6 months or so depending on your pet's age. In addition certain tests should be done regularly such as eye exams (to check for glaucoma), hip x-rays (to screen against hip dysplasia), dental examinations (to identify any oral disease), hearing tests (for deafness), thyroid testing (for hypothyroidism), DNA testing (for inherited conditions) etc.. The earlier any potential health issues are identified the better chance you will have of successfully treating them! The Pomsky is an increasingly popular designer dog due to its excellent disposition, companionship potential and adorable look which makes it an ideal choice for many families looking for a new pet. While not yet considered an official breed it still holds many desirable traits from both parent breeds which makes it well worth considering if you're wanting something special. Just remember that it also needs proper care like all other dogs including keeping up with regular vet visits, making sure your pup maintains healthy weight levels & getting tested regularly against inherited conditions too - just like any other canine family member!
