A Pomsky is a new designer breed that is a cross between a Husky and a Pomeranian. Being that the Pomsky is a cross between two breeds the physical appearence and weight of the puppies is at times unpredictable.
F1= 50% Husky and 50% Pomeranian. This is done by artificial insemination of a female husky by a male pom. Breeding a male husky to a female pomeranian is very dangerous and most likely lead to a c-section or death of the female pom. F1 pomskies generally weigh between 10-25 pounds.
Coat- an F1 pomsky puppy tends to look more like a small husky with a wooly coat and pointed ears. Come puppies however can have more husky like coats and some coats more similar to pomeranian's. Their tails are curled similar to both their pomeranian and husky parents
F1b= 25% Husky and 75% Pomeranian F2 pomskies generally weigh between 8-15 pounds.
Coat- F2 Pomskies tend to be smaller with more of a pomeranian look and coat with pointed ears. There will still be some husky resemblance like the Blue eyes, or coat coloring. Their tails are curled similar to both their pomeranian and husky parents
F2= Is when two Pomskies are bred to each other. Colors are more varried but size is more calculateable.
F2b=second generation backcross puppy this is when you have a F1 bred to a F1b resulting in a hybrid backcross
F3=F2 hybrid to F2 hybrid
Pomsky puppies are very intelligent and have a moderate activity level. They are good natured, lively and play well with children. They learn quick and require regular play or exercise to avoid bordom. Board Pomskies can get themselves into trouble by chewing, it is recommended that you supply them with plenty of toys and dog chews to keep the pups busy especially at night or while you are away. Pomskies tend to be on the quiet side and are generally the perfect size for couples where one wants a small dog and the other a bigger dog. Pomskies like many breeds are diggers so its best to get them trained not to dig. BUT LIKE ALL DOGS PERSONALITY CAN VARY FROM PUP TO PUP depending on their individual genetic make up and what traits get passed down from their parents. Some pups can be more on the active side while other can be a bit more relaxed. Pomskies are protective of their owners and can make great guard dogs despite their smaller size.
The pomsky breed is still very new since they have not been around that long there is not much known about any common health conditions. However, since this breed is mixed between the two breeds it is possibly for a puppy to have hereditary health conditions from either breed.
