Pomeranian Husky: Everything You Need to Know About Pomskies

A Pomeranian Husky (also known as Pomskies!) is a unique cross between a tiny, fluffy Pomeranian and the large, wolf-like Siberian Husky. 

This result is a beautiful hybrid that’s mid-sized, super-fluffy, yet looks remarkably Husky-like with its piercing eyes and distinctive Spitz features.

While these dogs are particularly well-suited for small homes and apartments where a larger, full-size Siberian Husky just wouldn’t fit, they are also notoriously independent, energetic, and absolutely love to howl like wolves!

In this article, we detail what you can expect to see from a Pomeranian Husky mix, so you can see if a Pomsky really is the dog for you. Keep reading, and find out everything you need to know about the Pomeranian Husky.

Pomeranian Husky: an overview

The Pomeranian Husky is easily one of the most popular hybrid-cross breeds in a long and ever-increasing line of ‘designer dogs’ (other popular designer dogs include Cockapoos, Labradoodles, and the Puggle!).

The Pomeranian Husky, or Pomsky for short, is a designer breed produced by crossing a Pomeranian with a Siberian Husky. The result is a smaller, fluffier version of the Siberian Husky that makes for one of the best apartment dogs.

This breed retains certain characteristics from both the Pomeranian and the Siberian Husky. The Pomsky dog is essentially a cross between a working dog (the Siberian Husky) and a companion dog (the tiny Pomeranian), and the results are rather unique.

While they are smaller than a Siberian Husky, they still have those wolf-like facial features, and while they are as fluffy as a Pomeranian, they also have that high energy and need for affection. If you’ve always wanted a Siberian Husky, but don’t have the space to care for a full-grown wolf-dog in your home, then the Pomeranian Husky mix is the solution!

Let’s take a look at the stats of an adult Pomsky in more detail:

Height: A Husky Pomeranian mix stands between 10 and 15 inches tall, once fully grown. They are much taller than Pomeranians but much shorter than Siberian Huskies!

Weight: A Pomsky full grown weight is between 20 and 30 pounds (again somewhere between the weight of a Pomeranian and a Husky).

Physical attributes: Mid-sized dog with a thick, double coat and fluffy fur. They are often born with those piercing blue Husky eyes. Coats can come in a range of colors, either Husky-colored (black, white, grey) or Pomeranian-colored (tan, black, brown, etc.). It essentially looks like a small Husky or Husky puppy at first glance!

Lifespan: Pomeranian Husky puppies, once grown, can live between 9 and 13 years.

Known health problems: Very prone to hereditary diseases and conditions and can inherit problems of either the Pomeranian or the Husky (or both). Prone to allergies, eye conditions, dental conditions, heart disease, hip dysplasia, and luxating patellas.

Temperament: Fun-loving, full of energy, craves affection and companionship from humans, loves to howl, intelligent, takes well to training but can be stubborn. Pomskies are best suited to be companion dogs.
