Pomsky - Pawsource



Welcome to our blog about the cute dog breed, the Pomsky! The Pomsky is a cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. These beautiful dogs are relatively new to the world of dog breeds, having emerged in the early 21st century. Although they are not a recognized breed with major canine associations such as the FCI, they have quickly risen in popularity due to their striking looks and affectionate personalities.


Pomsky's are intelligent, curious and playful. They love to be the center of attention and generally love human company. They are loyal and affectionate which makes them great companion dogs for families and individuals alike.

Being a mix of two high energy breeds, Pomskys need plenty of exercise to stay healthy and happy. They enjoy walking, running and playing, and they are excellent candidates for dog sports such as agility and flyball. However, they can also be stubborn and independent, so it's important to give them consistent training and socialization from a young age.


As with any breed of dog, there are some health issues that Pomsky's can be prone to. The most common health problems in this breed are hip dysplasia, patellar luxation and eye problems such as cataracts. In addition, they can also be sensitive to certain skin conditions.

It's important to schedule regular vet checkups to make sure your Pomsky stays healthy. A good breeder will also perform genetic testing on the parents to minimize the risk of hereditary disorders in the puppies.

The average life expectancy of a Pomsky is between 12 and 15 years which is comparable to other dogs of a similar size.


Pomskies have a thick double coat that requires regular grooming to prevent tangles and excessive hair loss. It is recommended that you brush your Pomsky at least a few times a week with a firm bristle brush to remove dead hair and keep their coat healthy and shiny. Daily brushing may be necessary during seasonal shedding periods.
