Pomsky Dog Breed Sizes
A Husky weighs on average 40-60lbs and a Pomeranian weights roughly between 4-8lbs.
As you can see, there’s a very large space between 4lbs and 60lbs. Depending on how large the mother and father is, we can determine how large the resulting Pomsky puppy will grow up to be.
Our first generation Pomsky puppies usually grow up to be somewhere around 20lbs-25lbs. However, sometimes there’s a runt! And those little ones can be as small at 10-15lbs! And other times, there’s a BIG BOY (as we like to call it) those can grow up to be a whopping 30-35lbs!
It can be confusing, we know. However, we have been doing this a very long time. And thankfully for you, we can estimate puppy sizes quite easily.
So, if you’re interested in a specific size, we’ll help narrow down some options especially for you. Now, to understand what “generations” mean keep reading!
Pomsky Generations & How To Pick A Best One For You
Pomskys are known for their small size, fluffy coats, and adorable features. There are four different types of Pomsky: teacup, miniature, standard, and giant, but they are also classified with F1, F2 and F1b. The size of a Pomsky can vary greatly, as it depends on the proportion of Pomeranian and Siberian Husky genes they inherit. Each size has their own characteristics and the right one for you will depend on your lifestyle and living space.
Husky x Pomeranian = F1 (15-30 lbs)
F1 x F1 = F2 (20-25 lbs)
Husky x F1 = F1b (30-35 lbs)
Pomeranian x F1 = F1b (10-15 lbs)
So, to break all this down so that it means something: YOU HAVE 4 OPTIONS
First Generation Pomsky = F1
This first is Husky x Pomeranian. This will get you a Pomsky!
What we call a first generation Pomsky. It is a Pomsky, who’s parents are not a Pomsky. There’s a wider range in size here, because the difference between the parents is so drastic! Our Pomskies generally stay between 20-25 lbs, but most litters have at least 1 runt, who is smaller than the rest.
Every once in a while, we’ll get a big boy who is a bit bigger than all his siblings. When choosing a puppy, we’ll give you a size estimate of each puppy you’re interested in to help you find what is perfect for you and your family.
Second Generation Pomsky = F2
The second option is Pomsky x Pomsky! The result is of course: Pomsky! The weight estimation is more straight forward.
Our Pomskies are all just about 20 lbs (give or take 1 or 2 pounds) so their puppies are usually right about 20 lbs too.
What Is An F1b Pomsky?
Now here’s the part that can get confusing. F1b is when a Pomsky is bred with either a Husky OR Pomeranian. Here’s two examples:
- When a Pomsky is bred with a Pomeranian, the result is that the Pomsky offspring is 25% Husky, and 75% Pomeranian. These Pomskies are quite a bit smaller! They grow up to be right around 10 lbs! Sometimes less!
- But, when you breed a Pomsky with a Husky you’ll get a Pomsky that is 75% Husky and only 25% Pomeranian. This will result in a bigger Pomsky! They are usually right around 30-35 lbs on average!
When trying to figure out what exactly you are looking for when it comes to size, temperament and generations… leave that up to us!
We will ask a series of questions to figure out what you believe is the perfect dog for you, and we’ll narrow down a smaller group of pups to choose from. Each will include a description of their temperament, what their adult weight will be, and what the requirements are for each little one. We are wonderful match makers!
