The Pomsky is a super popular designer dog that was developed by crossing a Siberian Husky with a Pomeranian. These dogs are very intelligent, playful, and stubborn. They have a tendency to have a prey drive, and need early socialization to prevent aggressiveness when fully grown. They are small to medium size, weighing from 20 to 30 pounds, and standing up to 15 inches tall. They have a beautiful, silky, medium-length coat that is usually a combination of two colors. Their eyes can be brown, hazel, blue, or green, and they can even have different colored eyes.


The Pomsky is believed to have originated around 2009, in the United States and the first record of a Pomsky litter born in the U.S. was in 2012. This hybrid was developed from crossing a Siberian Husky with a Pomeranian, and it is mainly bred through artificial insemination to avoid complications. This designer dog became rapidly popular around Europe and North America, and it’s thought to be the most popular designer dog of the 2017. The Siberian Husky is believed to come from the Siberian nomad tribe, the Chukchi. There’s little known about their history, but DNA tests show that the breed is ancient. The Chukchi had Huskies as family dogs that helped them with transportation. It is known that Huskies would sleep with the children, providing them with a comfortable and warm bed. In 1908 the breed was taken to Alaska and used as sled dogs during the gold rush. The Huskies participated in the All-Alaska Sweepstakes, a 408-mile race, and they continue doing so in the present. In 1930, the last Siberian Husky was exported from Siberia, due to the closing of the borders. The breed has somewhat changed in America, but they still share many of their qualities with the Chukchi Sled Dog. The Siberian Husky was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1930. Pomeranians, on the other hand, originated in the province of Pomerania (hence the name), and they descend from the Spitz breeds. They are closely related to the German Spitz, the American Eskimo Dog, the Samoyed, and other Spitz dogs. At first, Pomeranians were significantly bigger, they would weigh up to 30 pounds, and they were very popular. It is known that distinguished people like Michelangelo (whose Pomeranian would sit on a pillow and watch him paint the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling), Martin Luther, Isaac Newton, and Mozart (who dedicated an aria to his Pom), had Pomeranians as beloved pets. In England, the Pomeranian furor also arrived in 1761, when Sophie Charlotte, from a province near to Pomerania, married the soon-to-be King George III, and brought with her two 20-pound Poms. Queen Victoria was also very fond of the breed, especially the smaller ones. This motivated English fanciers to breed smaller Pomeranians. From 1900 to the 1930s, the breed was standardized. They became their current size, and the variety of colors became more varied. The American Kennel Club registered the first Pomeranian in 1888.
