The Pomsky is a cross between the larger, more athletic and durable Siberian Husky, and the smaller Pomeranian, which is how we arrive at “Pomskie.” It’s a fantastic family dog that looks adorable and can be very smart and trainable. However, as with any breed, the Pomeranian Husky mix has its own unique characteristics that may or may not be exactly what you are looking for.
Smart & Loving
If you decide that a Pomeranian Husky is the right puppy for you, that means you’re looking for a dog that is both social and intelligent. From the Husky, it gets its love of good company and is a great family dog for people that are willing to pay it the attention “within the pack” that it needs.
However, it’s also an intelligent, curious dog. While this doesn’t mean that you can expect it to be destroying everything in your home it can get at, it is a curious dog. Left to its own devices, it could get into trouble, but that same curiosity and intelligence means that puppies can be easily trained. With the right regimen, they can quickly learn to play dead, fetch, roll over and become excellent leash dogs.
One thing that’s very difficult to predict with a Pomeranian Husky for sale is the final size of the dog when it grows to an adult. There’s a large difference in size between a Husky and Pomeranian, so this means that the small puppies for sale may not always retain their smaller stature. The weight of a Pomsky can vary between 15-30 pounds, and still be considered normal. If one of your requirements for a dog is that it absolutely must be smaller in size, this unpredictability in final adult size may need to be something you think about.
This is going to be a big one for people that live here in Florida, but it should come as no surprise. When you take something that’s used to living in colder, wintery climates like a Husky, and you get a Pomeranian Husky cross-breed, it’s going to be very furry. That coat is gorgeous and luxurious when properly maintained, but it was designed to keep a dog comfortable in frigid temperatures.
When you bring that dog to the more tropical climate of Florida, you can expect a lot of shedding, and you’ll get it. You can expect Pomeranian Husky puppies to shed at least twice a year, for a period of three months total. If you want to keep the fur in good shape, be prepared to brush and groom regularly, but also understand that the shedding is natural. This is a northern breed in a southern climate, so some allowances have to be made.
Otherwise, a Pomsky dog is a bright, curious, loyal companion that will provide much love to a family and is a perfect companion for people willing to meet their needs.
