Combining the intelligent nature of the Miniature Poodle with the affectionate and sweet temperament of the Pomeranian, the Pomapoo may be the ideal dog for you. While the appearance may vary depending on the dominant genetic make up, you can be assured they always have elegant good looks and a loving expression in their eyes. Friendly by nature, outgoing and loyal, they are eager to make new friends and are tender and kind with children. Gentle in nature and rarely aggressive, early socialisation will bring out their best traits and ensure a confident little dog. Bouncing along at your side, they love to be close to you and will bond closely. This may cause separation anxiety if you leave them for a long time, as they need and rely on your company. Soft, fluffy and with endearing looks, this intelligent small dog is an ideal family pet or trusted companion.


The Pomapoo has little information available about her beginnings, therefore we need to look at the parent dog history to evaluate their characteristics. The Poodle is an ancient breed that originated in Germany where it is believed they were used to retrieve water fowl from the water for the hunter. The Poodle clip was designed by hunters to help the dog to swim more efficiently. They would leave large patches of hair on the leg joints to protect them from the extreme cold and sharp reeds. It was in France where they discovered the Poodle was highly intelligent and could be trained to perform, which saw Poodles star in many circus shows. There are three sizes of Poodle – the Standard Poodle who was a the hunters retriever, the Miniature Poodle who was ideal for sniffing out truffles, and then there was the Toy Poodle who was a true companion. The smaller Poodles became popular in royal households in the 18th century. Poodles excel at agility, competitive obedience, learning tricks and retrieving. The Pomeranian originated in a region called Pomerania which is now known as Germany and Poland. This fluffy dog was developed from the ancient Spitz breeds, which is where they got their beautiful coats. They were much larger then than they are today, weighing up to 30 pounds compared to the seven pounds we see today. These elegant dogs were working dogs then; they used to herd the shepherds flocks of sheep. But as they became known they gained popularity which included many famous owners such as Marie Antoinette, Emile Zola, Mozart and Queen Victoria. It was in 1888 when Queen Victoria began breeding and showing the Pomeranian, and it was she who started breeding them down in size which made them extremely popular in England. The American Kennel Club recognized them in 1888. The Pom’s talents include agility and performing tricks as well as being quite capable as a watch dog.

This store is the best! I get my poodle groomed here and Lynn does a great job. The store smells really good and the puppies are so cute. I highly recommend you shop at Waggs.
