Things to Know About the Pomsky Breed

If you don’t know what a Pomsky dog is, then here’s the explanation: it’s the look of a Husky combined with the body of a Pomeranian. Therefore, a Pomsky is pretty much a Pomeranian Husky.

Lifespan and Growth Averages

Pomskies typically live between 13 and 15 years. They’re known to be quite intelligent but may have their parents’ temperaments, making them slightly harder to train than other dogs. Their double coats feature long and silky hair. Therefore, it’s smart to brush them daily during shedding season-- which accounts for about 6 months of each year. Otherwise, their coats need brushing a couple times a week.

A typical Pomsky stands about a foot tall and weighs about between 20 and 30 pounds as an adult.

Exercise and Dietary Needs

As for exercise, Pomskies do well with a 20-minute walk in the morning followed by a 30-minute walk later in the day. They’re playful, so one or two play sessions daily is important to their overall health and well-being. These are not dogs you just ignore! They like to keep busy and do well living with active, attention-giving families.

Pomskies eat typical dog food in moderate quantities. Thankfully, they’re not too fussy and they generally don’t have “special diet requirements.”

Other Interesting Pomsky
