Pomsky Personality: Unraveling the Hybrid Dog's Character


Have you fallen in love with the cute face of the Pomsky? Its soft fur, mini Husky appearance, adorable expression... But you're wondering if the Pomsky is the right dog for you? In this article, we will try to tell you more about the behavior and character of the Pomsky.

A recent crossbreed

First of all, it's important to keep in mind that the Pomsky is a brand new crossbreed, so we don't have the same experience as with a breed recognized by the French Kennel Club (LOF) that has been developed for decades, or even centuries. Reproducers of a LOF breed are selected based on specific physical and temperamental characteristics. Individuals that do not meet the standards set by the French Kennel Club's pedigree book will be excluded from breeding.
So, it's easy to talk about the character of a LOF breed.

As for the Pomsky, we are dealing with a new crossbreed of two breeds with very different temperaments: the Husky and the Spitz. This results in a beautiful genetic melting pot. Therefore, it is very difficult to predict the character, physical traits, and needs of the dog in the case of a crossbreed.

The Pomsky comes from two parents of two very different breeds, so there will be many characteristics at play in the genetics of the puppy. You will never find two identical Pomsky puppies from two different breeders.

Thus, no breeder can tell you with certainty before birth what the character or exact size of the Pomsky will be. Based on their experience and previous litters, they can guide and advise you.

Origins of the Pomsky

It all starts with the crossbreeding of a Husky and a Pomeranian Spitz. These breeds are purebred and have been developed for years, so we can predict their character and see common traits emerging within these breeds.

The Siberian Husky
It's a well-known breed that many people dream of. It has natural elegance and beauty, is highly intelligent, and is a kind dog that loves both big and small animals. It's a dog that is well-suited to living in a family, provided its needs are met. It's a dog that needs structure and owners who are aware of its physical and mental needs. If its needs are not met, the Husky can become destructive or a runaway.
The Husky remains a primitive dog that can quickly go after chickens, rabbits, and cats!
In any case, a well-trained and socialized Husky will be a loyal and loving companion for life.

The Pomeranian

It's a small breed known for being cheerful and energetic.
The Spitz can be possessive in nature. The Pomeranian is particularly prone to developing the "small dog syndrome." This has a lot to do with the influence of the owner and the time invested in socialization.
The Pomeranian is also a very intelligent breed that seeks stimulation, attention, and affection. This means that despite its size, it needs daily exercise and a lot of attention to be happy.

Genetic Combination

It is difficult to predict the character of the Pomsky, but it seems to have a friendly and loyal temperament.
They seek attention and need a lot of stimulation to channel their energy and avoid developing behavioral problems.
In addition, the Pomsky can become possessive or exhibit small dog syndrome like the Pomeranian, but this behavior can be mitigated through training and exercise.
