There are lots of Pomsky features that are considered rare, even Pomskies themselves as a breed are rare! Pomskies are a cross between a Husky and a Pomeranian. These two breeds cannot be naturally bred, as that would be dangerous. They require a vet visit and artificial insemination. Because of this reason, Pomskies are rare and usually expensive.

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.

The reality is that preferences come in waves. As a matter of fact, I cannot recall how many times we have gotten black puppies, and all of a sudden everyone wants white puppies. As an alternative, we might obtain a large number of white puppies, and everyone is eager to obtain the black puppies. As recently as six months ago, we had all husky markings, but suddenly, people were interested in solid colors. The litters that we receive are completely random. Consider these litters:

There are times when we do not get black puppies. There are times when we only receive solid colors. We sometimes do not have any brown, only white. Other times, we receive a whole litter of white puppies. In a sense, they are all unique and rare, since none of them are identical. Each puppy’s markings and colors are unique. However, maybe none of these colors are actually “rare” since each is seen at least once every year. As can be seen in the third photograph, those are pure white puppies. When you zoom in on the first picture, the white ones appear to be cream in color, with a white husky mask on their faces.

It is evident at the end of the day that each puppy is unique and rare! Even the white ones, sometimes they stay pure white, other times they turn creme or tan and show white markings. Black puppies often have brown markings on their feet and eyebrows. Sometimes these markings fade to other colors, and sometimes they turn bright and light after a couple of years of maturing. So each black puppy is also unique. Gray puppies later develop all sorts of different and unique markings and colors. Sometimes the color tan/creme comes out from underneath the grey, sometimes white, sometimes they fade to dark colors accentuating beautiful features such as a dark muzzle, dark feet, and a beautiful light grey back. The brown puppies sometimes become a gorgeous chocolate brown, while others become a stunning red. Black and white puppies with the iconic Husky mask, even the masks are unique to each puppy. Some have thin lines, others are thick. Some are symmetrical, while others are fantastically asymmetrical as if one side of the face belonged to another dog!

How Rare Are Pomskies?

Pomskies are becoming more popular due to their beauty, small size and intelligence. However, the breeding process is more difficult than most and because of this, Pomskies are pretty rare in the dog world.

Pomskies require artificial insemination between a Pomeranian and a Husky. The extra step isn’t necessary for most breeders of dogs who have similar-sized males and females. A Husky and a Pomeranian are vastly different in size, so it’s practically impossible to breed them naturally. Not only is AI an extra step, but as I said before, it is expensive. Lots of people who are interested in breeding are disappointed and do not want to continue in the direction of Pomskies because of this.

Breeders in general are held to a high standard too. Puppy mills and backyard breeders are heavily frowned upon, for obvious reasons. So to be a breeder, you need a mentality to spare no money on the health, safety and happiness of your parent dogs, not just the puppies. So, breeding responsibly is a very expensive endeavor. That is why a huge extra step that sucks out even more money is risky, and more people would avoid such a challenge. When doing AI, you must also do progesterone to narrow down WHEN to breed. Lots of vet visits and supervision is required to make this breed happen! This is the main reason Pomskies are rare.

What Are The Most Common Colors Of Pomskies?

It is difficult to say which coat colors are most common among Pomskies. They are all unique, and each color and/or marking depends on their parents. When you look at Huskies and Pomeranians, each breed comes in many beautiful colors and unique markings.

If we breed a male Pomeranian who is tri-color and has a “mask” with a Husky female who has either a black/white or red/white coat, the most common puppies will have either a black or red coat, with a white mask. Huskies come in so many colors. Some are all white but most of them are different shades of black and grey, or different shades of red/ginger, each with a white mask. So, there is a variation for sure, but this is the most common. Husky colors, a husky face, but in smaller form!

Sometimes when folks choose a puppy, they are obsessed with Huskies and want a Pomsky pup that resembles a Husky the most. It is always difficult to say which puppy looks more or less like a Husky, because Huskies come in so many gorgeous variations! You may look at this type of Pomsky, either tri-colored or just black/white, or just red/white, and even though this is the most common, there is no Pomsky alike. Each one of our puppies, even in the same category, are unique.

What Color Pomsky Are Rare?

While there are certain categories of colors and markings variations, each puppy is unique. Even in these groups, each is very special and unlike the other.

To answer this question, I will say Wolf-Sable. Above I described breeding a Husky mother with a Pomeranian father with either black or red, or tri-color with a white mask. We here at Bowtie Pomsky have a couple Wolf-Sable Pomeranian males. To describe this coat color, it is like a grey and black mixture that changes to a beige-like tan on the lower back. They usually don’t have speckles of white in it. Instead, it’s more a mix between light and dark grays, which becomes tan in the lower part of their body, past their mid back. Pomskies with a Wolf-Sable Pomeranian father and a typical Husky mother (usually black and white) come out VERY unique and different every time! Each puppy in the litter is completely different.

These puppies usually appear to have porcupine-like fur color because of their speckles. Some are light grey with unique teddy bear markings, while others are intensely dark with white hair throughout. It is most common for these Wolf Sable Pomskies to have a dark snout. This fades into lighter grey/beige colors on their heads, and continues to get lighter towards the middle of the back. The most unique feature of these specific puppies is the fact that SOME of these puppies will stay relatively the same as they mature and grow up, and others WILL NOT. It is an exciting gamble. We’ve had so many puppies absolutely transform throughout their puppyhood, into their adolescence, and into adulthood. They become different almost every month, and are completely unrecognizable years later. Each transformation is beautiful, unique and impossibly cool. You cannot replicate it. There is only one of each.

Is A Blue Merle Pomsky Rare?

Merle is when a dog has distinctive skin pigment, and a coat color that resembles patches and/or spots in odd shapes. These dogs usually also have odd colored eyes that are either blue or a mixture of blues, greens and browns.

Merle Pomskies are rare, definitely. Merle Pomskies usually happen accidentally. It is a non-dominant gene, so if either parent of a Pomsky has it in their genes, they are most likely not to pass it on. However, sometimes it still happens. These puppies are not usually prone to health risks, and are just as healthy as solid-colored dogs.

Most breeders avoid breeding Merle dogs because of breeding risks. The risk comes from breeding Merle to Merle. This is the one thing you want to avoid. When one parent dog is Merle, and the other is not (but still has the gene!) there is a small chance that the non-dominant trait of the second parent may come out. Breeding Merle to Merle increases the risk of deafness and/or blindness in the resulting puppies. For this reason, we also do not breed Merle dogs. If we produce one, it is rare and healthy, but we do not want to risk breeding Merle to Merle, just in case.

Are All White Pomskies Rare?

White Pomskies are so pretty! Sometimes they are all white, and others have underlying markings that become visible later with age and maturity.

Pomskies with white coats are in between. They are not the most rare, and not the most common. They are somewhere in the middle. Breeders who specifically try to achieve an all-white coat usually breed a white Husky with a light tan or white Pomeranian. If you breed two parents who are both white, you will most definitely get mostly white puppies from this litter. However, most people don’t aim for that, and prefer a wide range of colors in each litter.

We here at Bowtie Pomsky also prefer a wide range of colors within each litter. So in our world, white Pomskies are a bit on the rare side, but we always have a few each year! It is easy to stay tuned to the puppies we have by visiting our website, which is updated constantly, so you always get the latest information every time you look at it! All of our puppies get a professional photoshoot every 2 weeks, and are posted up even before they are available for choosing.

What Is The Cheapest Pomsky?

Many people who are in search of an additional Pomsky family member do not have specific colors in mind. They are not choosy based solely on the appearance of the puppy. If you are one of these people, you might be okay with getting the cheapest puppy available.

You’ll be surprised to know, the cheapest Pomsky puppies are not always the most common colors, or undesirable puppies. Being a breeder for many years, we’ve learned that with each season there comes a “wave” of people looking for this or that. For example, we get a variety of colors, sizes and markings from almost every litter. There are times where almost everyone we speak to has a similar desire to the last. It’s as if one month everyone wants black puppies, and the next month, the opposite. When we see that the white ones are the last to be taken home, all white puppies would be cheapest. Other times we get waves of people who want white ones. In this season, all the black puppies are cheapest, and so on with all the colors.

There were plenty of times in the past, where the supposedly most desirable markings were the cheapest puppies of the litter. This was simply because of this phenomenon. It’s very odd, and comes randomly. So, remember that just because you see some puppies cheaper than others, it does not make them any less desirable. At first, when pricing our puppies, we price the most desirable or rare puppies the most expensive, followed by more common colors. But after talking to many potential new puppy parents, we change these prices according to the current “wave” of people we are helping. Puppies overlooked for one reason or another, based on random seasons and waves of people, are priced lower. This is simply because we hope all our fur babies are placed in homes. At the end of the day, each and every precious puppy deserves a loving family and a place to call home!
