Have you heard of generations in Pomskies? Are you looking for a small Pomsky and therefore searching for an F3 or F4? Is generation related to the size of your Pomsky? Well, not exactly!
Many breeders have tended to simplify things by stating that as we progress in generations, the size of the Pomsky reduces, but that's not entirely accurate.
The different generations:
It all starts with the first generation, also known as F1 , which is a crossbreed between a Husky and a Pomeranian Spitz.
Then the second generation Pomsky , called F2, resulting from a crossbreed between:
- Two first-generation Pomskies (F1F1)
- One first-generation Pomsky and one second-generation Pomsky (F1F2)
And then the third generation Pomsky, called F3:
- Two second-generation Pomskies (F2F2)
- One second-generation Pomsky and one third-generation Pomsky (F2F3)

Does generation influence size?
No, we cannot define the size of a Pomsky based on its generation, as it depends on the selection made by the breeder and the size they wish to work with.
Not all Pomsky breeders aim to produce a 4kg mini Pomsky in the fourth generation.
The size of Pomskies is very difficult to define. In the first generation, the size of the Husky mother and the Pomeranian Spitz father will influence the size of the puppies. It can range from puppies weighing 5kg to puppies weighing 14kg. Within the same litter of Pomskies, there can also be huge variations in weight, ranging from half to double the size.
Therefore, it is important to choose your breeder carefully and communicate with them extensively. A responsible breeder will be knowledgeable about their bloodlines and will be able to guide you towards a puppy that meets your criteria.
