There is a wide variety of coat colors in Pomskies, as well as different fur lengths and masks, creating unique physical characteristics for each Pomsky companion.
In this article, we will showcase the different coat colors in Pomskies, and we are certain that one of them will capture your heart.
Firstly, before presenting the range of possible coat variations in Pomskies, let me introduce the different types of markings. Indeed, Pomskies often have a pattern on their heads called a mask. This mask is what adds charm to the Pomsky and undeniably resembles the mask found in Huskies.
Different masks in Pomskies:
There is a wide variety of masks in Pomskies, and each pattern is unique, allowing you to find your favorite.
The Fleur-de-Lis mask
This is the marking found on the head of the Pomsky, which undeniably resembles a beautiful Fleur-de-Lis.
The Bandit Mask
This mask is characterized by two small lines at the corner of the eyes.
The Open Mask
The Open Mask in Pomskies is represented by a wide white stripe between the two eyes. This sometimes gives them a softer and less severe appearance. This mask is also found in Huskies, just like the two previous ones.
Finally, some Pomskies may not have a mask. They will have a solid color instead. They can be entirely chocolate, agouti, black... In the photo, an example of an agouti Pomsky.
