Origin of the Pomsky breed
The Pomsky is originally from the United States, where by accident, carelessness or simply by making test crosses he came across this beautiful specimen. It is not known for sure who managed to make this crossing for the first time Nor what were his intentions, but without a doubt the result was surprising.
Being a relatively new breed, there is no stable breeding line so there are actually several types of Pomsky dog, with different sizes and characteristics. The most valued specimens of Pomsky are those of small size and appearance similar to a Husky in miniature.
To obtain a Pomsky, two quite different breeds cross each other, the Siberian Husky and the Pomeranian. The Husky is active, medium-sized – large, energetic, playful, and playful while the Pomeranian is medium-sized – small, less sociable, and sometimes territorial.
However, the mixture of both gives us the result of a medium-sized dog, with fluffy fur and a happy and friendly character, what we know as a Pomsky dog.
Pomsky dog physical characteristics
Because it is not a breed with years of breeding work behind it, there are many types of Pomsky. That is to say, there are no physical parameters that determine the weight, height and marked characters of this breed, such as, for example, the Siberian Husky or Pomeranian with its parents.
However, there is a common stereotype that is most demanded by those who want to buy a Pomsky dog. To meet the requirements or standards of this new breed, the Pomsky must be medium-small in size, being the copies of small size the most valued.
Posmky puppies are very much like a small stuffed animal, they are small and rounded in appearance, covered by a large layer of very fluffy fur. The color of the hair is usually very similar to that of the Siberian Husky although not as long.
An adult Pomsky dog can weigh between ten and fifteen kilos in weight, so when it is an adult its size is still medium – small. The largest specimens are not as valued / demanded as the smaller ones.
However it is very difficult to know what an adult Pomsky puppy will be like, since there are no features that determine whether it will be medium or large. Some specimens genetically inherit the size of the Husky and end up being large dogs.
The color of a Pomsky’s eyes is variable, with blue being the most desired and dark brown the most common. The color of their hair also varies depending on the traits of the parent, from lighter (white, gray) to darker (brown, even black).
Pomsky breed character
Pomsky dog puppies are real cuddly toys, cheerful and very active, sociable and playful. At general levels and with some exceptions, they love to be and play with children, with whom they share endless moments of games.
The character of a Pomsky is very good in every way, however, as we all know, it is necessary to educate them correctly since they are little, so that the coexistence between your dog and you is adequate. You can get more detailed information on how to educate a Pomsky dog here :

Adult Pomsky dogs are just as sociable and loving as puppies, provided they have obviously been well behaved. The difference between a Pomsky puppy and an adult is that adults need more physical activity. Going out to exercise with our dog or taking long walks is essential so that it spends all its excess energy on a daily basis.
In short and at general levels, as long as the dog is well educated and socialized, the Pomsky are an active, happy, playful and cuddly breed. Everything a person can or should expect from their puppy.
Necessary care for Pomsky dogs
Broadly speaking, the care is more or less similar to that of any other dog of its size, with some small peculiarities that we will mention so that you always keep them in mind.
- Adequate nutrition: Remember that food is the basis of your dog’s health, if you choose to feed it with fodder, remember to choose a good high-quality fodder (in Spain it is known how I think pre-made dog food, in Mexico it is known as balanced). If you opt for natural food, look for info on the BARF Diet.
- Veterinary check-ups and mandatory vaccinations: Remember that it is mandatory to give vaccinations to your Pomsky dog when it is a puppy and also to put the reminder ones when it is an adult. You can get more information here: Mandatory Puppy Vaccines.
- Brushing and mandatory baths: When you see a Pomsky dog in front of you you will understand why brushing is so important in this breed. His hair is very abundant and fluffy, so it needs to be brushed daily to avoid knots, tangles, dirt and grass remains, sticks and anything that drag in the park. A couple of baths a month is highly recommended to keep them clean, especially when the Pomsky is an adult as it is more active.
- Medium-high physical activity: As long as you are a puppy you don’t have to force him to be physically active, letting him play as he pleases and going for a walk several times a day is enough. However, when the Pomsky is an adult, it is necessary to increase physical exercise to avoid excess energy.
As you can see there is not much difference compared to other dog breeds, when it comes to care. We just have to take special care with your hair, brush it often, and not skip any vet checks.
How is an adult Pomsky dog?
This breed of dog does not grow much in size, or at least not the most requested specimens. The adult Pomsky ca
n weigh around fifteen kilos, its size is small, pulling medium and his physical appearance is very similar to that of a Siberian Husky.
Many Pomsky dogs acquire the beautiful blue eyes of the Husky, making them aesthetically beautiful. Their rounded facets even as adults continue to give them a very similar resemblance to a stuffed animal.
