Do you know what a Pomsky is? It may sound like a plush toy or a sweet candy, but a Pomsky actually refers to a crossbreed between a Pomeranian and a Siberian Husky. The designer breed garnered quite a following in 2016 since Pomsky dogs seem like miniature Siberian Huskies, and the most popular dog breeds include Siberian Huskies.
Basics of a Pomsky
You can easily get Pomsky puppies for adoption, but before you do, you first have to know more about these little critters. Pomskys reach up to 10 to 15 inches tall, a little higher than pure Pomeranians. They also weigh around 20 to 30 pounds. In spite of their size and relative lightness, you have to be ready for a Pomsky’s energy; they love attention and playtime.
Now, in spite of their popularity, Pomskies have only been around for a few years. Given their quite new existence, Pomskies still need to be studied to know more about their behavior and any possible health complication that comes from crossbreeds. Pomsky owners, however, vouch for the crossbreed’s qualifications as a companion and family pet.
Speaking of unknown behavior, Pomskies can be difficult to train like a Husky or can have a Small Dog Syndrome like a Pomeranian. You will have to train your pet consistently if it exhibits either behavior. Otherwise, if you get lucky, your Pomsky will be easy to train.
Costs of a Pomsky can start at around $1,000 but can reach $5,000. Caring for such a crossbreed can cost more than $2,500 in the first year and less than $2,000 in the succeeding years. These costs cover toys, accessories, food, preventive medication, and veterinary bills. You can even add insurance to cover any sudden emergency expenses.
