We’ll walk you through the most important things you need to know about Pomskies and how to become the best adoptive parent of this beautiful companion dog
Pomskies are not high maintenance. According to many families who have previously bought a Pomsky puppy from us, we have not yet heard anyone give us feedback that implies they are high maintenance. Actually, it’s the opposite. Many of our puppy parents say they were surprised at how easy they are to care for. Training is fun, they’re well behaved indoors, and shedding is seasonal.
Pomskies are not hypoallergenic. They are a mix of breeds that are not as well, the Husky and Pomeranian. They may be less irritating for most of the year while they are growing out their coat as they shed minimally. But, when its time to shed that undercoat, a person with allergies would most definitely not be very comfortable around them, especially during the grooming process.
The puppies are ready to be picked up or shipped to you 8 weeks after they are born. This gives us enough time to nurture and wean them from their mother’s milk.
At arrival, your puppy may or may not be hungry, depending how soon they fed the puppy before the flight, or the puppy may be sick from the flight or nervous of the whole travel process. I would have food for the puppy in the travel bowl that is connected to the kennel and give the puppy freedom to do what he/she will want to do: eat, drink or rest. It is normal for the puppy to not want to eat that first day, but it should pass quickly and their appetite will come back.
Pomskies are not as active as Huskies, but they are still active dogs. Pomskies are relatively small, so their endurance and energy levels are surprising! They can keep up with bike rides, hikes, and other adventures. However, they do not require intense exercise to be well behaved indoors like most Huskies. Pomskies do however require a little bit more exercise than their smaller counterparts, Pomeranians.
Pomsky features that are considered rare are different eye colors, crystal blue eyes and expressive mask. Although these features are not too rare, puppies with these features are less available because usually they will be the first ones adopted, so you have to be first on the list.
Pomskies are amazing family dogs. They are not too big or strong, they’re so smart, and absolutely love children. Even though all dogs have different personalities, likes and dislikes, the large majority of our Pomskies love kids, dogs and all other animals.
Pomskies are known for their perky, spunky, and energetic personality as well as loyalty, trust, strength, communication via their exotic body language and vocals, and more. They are fun, intelligent, able to join you on long adventures such as vigorous hikes and also, at the same time support you at home. Being a faithful friend and companion when and where you need them.
