The Pomsky is an amazingly cute combination of Pomeranian and Siberian Husky. This as a combination that was introduced just fifteen years ago.

The Pomeranian


The Pomeranian comes with a very long and interesting past, starting with being a descendent of large sled dogs of Iceland and Lapland. However now, it is the smallest of the Pomeranians Breeds. The Pomeranian is also rumored to be loved by Royalty, Queen Victoria of Britain, and Ireland. It was not well known until shortly after by the Kennel Club, originally called the Spitz dog. The Pomeranian is very active but also very disciplined when trained to do so. They fear very little, no matter the size of its opponent.

The Siberian Husky


The Siberian Huskies are more commonly linked to sled dogs however, it is important to know that they were also used as companions for families in Asia. The Siberian Husky is a medium in size, more of a compact form. The Siberian Husky’s blue eyes, markings, and stance are similar to that of some wolf breeds. The Siberian Husky is very intelligent, easy to train, but also is very hyperactive and curious.

General Care of the Pomsky

When looking to purchase a Pomsky, it is important to understand every aspect of care, just like any other pet that you may bring into your home. It is also important to get information that is correct. With the correct information and the correct care provided, you can rest assured that you will have a happy and healthy pomsky. 

While they can adapt to many different lifestyles and environments, they require encouragement and patience. It’s like having a small version of a wolf, which includes the extremely high levels of energy. They also prefer to have attention, every single bit of it. 

Pomskies are not meant to be alone, with little to no exercise. They can become very bored. As in most dogs, boredom can bring bad habits that are nearly impossible to break. It is also important to know that grooming is needed, quite frequently. While they may vary in size, you can pretty well guarantee that they will be soft, fluffy, and absolutely adorable. You will find yourself in a difficult position of saying “no” to such a cute little face. 

The Health 


The Pomskys’ health can vary, depending on the bloodline and what they take genetically from their parents. They pose chances of the typical health conditions from both the Siberian Husky and the Pomeranian. In most cases, these can be

the more common types of health issues such as hip dysplasia, eye disease, or obesity. 

It is important to understand that most dogs have health issues that can show up such as hearing and vision loss, joint problems, cancer, and heart problems. Being familiar with the Pomskys’ history helps in understanding the possibilities a bit more. Also, make sure to keep a frequent check with a veterinarian to make sure their health is taken care of in the best possible way. 

Always keep a check for worms, as worms can cause anemia, malnutrition, and other health difficulties. Keeping on top of worms and their prevention helps support a longer life for your beautiful Pomsky. Worms can be contracted in many different ways, including rolling in or licking soil that contains worms. They can also be gotten by insect bites such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitos. Worms can also come from other dogs and animals as well. Keeping ahead of the possibilities, helps you prevent any future health issues. 

 

Grooming 


The Pomsky pups are adorable, and in order to keep their skin and fur in the best shape, it is advised to groom frequently. They need brushing that will not only prevent knots in the fur but also prevents skin conditions and reduces the effects of shedding. While you will still find hair around your home, and sometimes on your clothes, you can rest assured that it will not be massive amounts of fur. 

Bathing should happen often, around once a month but no more than once every three months. If bathing needs to happen every other week, that is fine, however, no sooner than that unless it is absolutely necessary. Bathing too often can cause skin issues such as itching and rash. Not bathing enough can leave it open for rashes and infestation of pests such as fleas and ticks. Keeping a balanced bathing schedule helps keep your Pomskys’ skin healthy. 

If in doubt, or if you just want to spoil your baby, taking your Pomsky to a professional groomer is recommended. A once a month spa day can not only make your Pomsky baby feel loved and amazing but can also make sure that the proper soaps and nail trimmings are done. They also clean out ears and make sure that your baby is thoroughly cleaned and feels so much better. 

Here are some tips for the grooming process if you do it alone: 
    * Make sure to choose hypo-allergenic shampoos. 
    * Brush before the bath. 
    * Reserve a place and a process, don’t change things up. 
    * Clean from bottom to top
    * Rinse head to tail. 
    * Dry with a towel or blow dry (for extra fluffiness). 
    * Make sure to give extra love and hugs in between.

Do not forget to brush those teeth! Periodontal disease is very frequent and starts from a buildup of plaque. This can cause extreme discomfort and tooth loss. Eventually, this can also cause issues with the jawbone. It is ideal to brush your dog's teeth once daily, however. It is recommended three times a week. 
    

Exercise and Nutrition


It is important to understand that Pomskies are not meant to be alone, with little to no exercise. They can become very bored. In most dogs, boredom can bring bad habits that are nearly impossible to break. It is also important to know that grooming is needed, quite frequently. While they may vary in size, you can pretty well guarantee that they will be soft, fluffy, and absolutely adorable. You will find yourself in a difficult position of saying “no” to such a cute little face. 

It is recommended that you walk your Pomsky for 45 minutes two times a day. This gives you time to not only train them, bond, and play but this also helps them be healthier. The proper feeding and exercise can help prevent obesity along with helping support a healthy circulatory system, helping prevent blood pressure problems in the future. This also helps them in their mental health as well, keeping them intrigued and happy. 

Pompsky puppies come with high energy and they need food that can help benefit them in every way possible that not only helps them look and feel good, but also helps them perform better. It is said that they can benefit greatly from a daily intake of thirty percent protein, thirty percent fat, and forty percent carbohydrates. Each percentage is based on their weight and age. The older your Pomsky gets, the less protein and fat they will need. 

You should make sure to check with a Veterinarian as well as certain diets can cause an effect on their health depending on already existing health conditions. In some cases, there can also be allergic reactions that need to be taken into consideration. It is important to keep your Pomsky frequently checked by the Veterinarian and recommendations followed closely.
