Pomskies are delightful small dogs with short, dense, and soft coats. Their fur is medium-length, and their coat is unique because they have a mix of features from both Huskies and Pomeranians. The Pomeranian is a small breed of dog, which belongs to the Spitz group. They have a unique coat, which has long hair on the face and chest and dense fur on the back. The Husky is mostly known for their double coat, which consists of an inner layer of short, straight hair, and an outer layer of long hair.  

Because the Pomsky is a mix of two very different dog breeds, its looks will be a combination of its parents. Pomskies have a round head with medium-sized erect ears and a pointed muzzle. Their noses could be black or brown in color. Their eyes may also be dark hazel or blue. The tail is plump, long, and curled towards the back. 

The Pomsky size is generally small, although they can be medium if they take after their Husky parent more. Typically, a full-grown Pomsky will weigh an average of 20 to 30 pounds and grow between 10 and 15 inches tall.  


Pomskies, like their parents, impress with a lot of qualities that dog lovers are crazy about. Not only are they incredibly gorgeous, but also quite smart and friendly. They may be vocal given their Husky lineage, but they are always eager to make new friends in both dog and human worlds. Pomsky dogs like to be on the move as much as possible, craving a life of adventures. They fancy dog parks and playgrounds and are completely fond of hiking adventures. 

Their temperament is as balanced as their personality. They are just as calm as they are playful. These little dogs have a sweet personality that is perfect for the entire family. They love using their silly antics to impress those around them and are highly entertaining for kids.  

When it comes to other dogs, although very friendly in nature, Pomsky dogs require early socialization. They may be territorial if not properly introduced to other dogs or pets during puppyhood. 


Pomsky Grooming

Pomsky dogs are a gorgeous breed that is renowned for their Husky-type fur. Although these dogs shed regularly, their grooming requirements are not high. Brushing them once or twice a week during seasons in which they shed less is ideal. There may be seasons when the Pomsky sheds more and requires daily brushing to remove the loose hair. It is recommended that during those seasons they be brushed daily for at least a few minutes. Although they are big fans of playing in water, Pomskies should not be bathed very often as this might be damaging for their skin. 2 or 3 baths a year should be enough to maintain their beautiful appearance. Like all dogs, Pomskies also need to have their teeth brushed daily and ears checked and cleaned weekly.  

Pomsky Exercise Needs

Pomskies are the combination of a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. These dogs are typically small, fluffy, and have a lot of energy. They're also known to be very affectionate, friendly, and loyal. Pomskies, like their parents, are very active and need a lot of exercise. They require more exercise than other breeds in order to stay healthy. It's important for these dogs to have enough socialization, so they're not destructive when left home alone for long periods of time. Pomskies are highly energetic and require a daily dose of exercise to keep them happy. These beautiful dogs have a lot of energy and become bored quickly if they don't get enough daily exercise. They are hyper-active at times, always wanting to play, so they should be given an opportunity to run around outside with their owner or another dog frequently. 30 to 60 minutes of daily activities are recommended. 

Pomsky Health

Like their parents, Pomsky dogs are incredibly resilient. They don’t have major health issues that are life-threatening. Some of the conditions they may encounter throughout their lives include the same health issues that are common among most dog breeds. These include eye issues like cataracts or glaucoma, hip displacement issues, allergies, and luxating patella. They may also be prone to obesity if they are not properly exercised or overly fed.  

Pomsky Lifespan

Pomsky dogs have an average lifespan of 13 to 15 years, but like their parents, they can exceed this mark if they are raised in a warm environment. No matter which parent the Pomskies takes after, it is possible that they live up to 18 years. There are countless records of Pomeranian dogs living as much as 20 years.  

Pomsky Training

The Pomsky is a mixed breed dog developed by crossbreeding purebred Siberian Husky and purebred Pomeranian. This hybrid is a combination of two worlds: the energy and intensity of the Husky, combined with the playful and friendly qualities of the Pomeranian.  

Pomskies are not like other dogs because they require special training to socialize them, housebreak them and potty train them. In order to raise a Pomsky successfully, it is important to know how to train them properly. 
Leash training is one of the most important parts of the process of socializing your Pomsky so that they don't run off when you aren't paying attention. This can be done by teaching your Pomsky puppy basic commands such as "sit," "stay" and "come." The socialization process should begin in a setting that your puppy knows and is comfortable in. You can begin by introducing various friends and family members in a gentle manner. Once your puppy becomes comfortable with being introduced to others in its home, you can move to outdoor socialization. It is also important that you get your puppy accustomed to its leash or harness before going on your first walk together. The Pomsky can also be prone to separation anxiety, so training is important to keep stress levels low. 


A crossbreed of a Pomeranian and a Siberian Husky, the Pomsky puppies inherit everything that is wonderful about their parents. They are as fluffy and as adorable as the Pomeranian and as gorgeous as the Husky. The cute Pomsky puppies also come with plenty of intelligence and playfulness to charm with. They crave a lifetime of games and adventures and are among the most loyal companion pets.  

The Pomsky breed first appeared in the United States at the turn of the 20th century when crossbreeds were at an all-time high. Unlike most designer dogs that were created to be hypoallergenic, the Pomsky was designed to have a truly unique appearance without sporting a coat that was allergy friendly. By mixing the Pomeranian with a Siberian Husky, the new breed would come out looking like a small Husky puppy even in its senior years.  
Pomskies are sometimes bred through multiple generations to gain better control over their size and appearance. For other crossbreeds, doodle breeds in particular, this practice is done to have better control over certain things like non-shedding coats or hypoallergenic qualities. 

The Pomsky generations that are most common are: 

  • The F1 Pomsky which is also known as the first-generation puppy. This puppy is born out of a Pomeranian crossed with a Husky 
  • The F1b Pomsky which is also known as the first-generation backcross. This puppy is born out of an F1 Pomsky backcrossed with either a Pomeranian or a Husky. In most cases, the F1 is backcrossed with a Pomeranian, and this is done to create a smaller-sized Pomsky 
  • The F2 Pomsky which is also known as the second-generation puppy. This puppy is born out of two Pomsky parents. The F2 is generally a cross between similar Pomskies (in terms of size, eye color, and coat color).
