When it comes to Teacup Pomeranians Dogs, You know they are friendly and affectionate to their owners. How long do teacup Pomeranians live for? Here is my 10 Fun interesting Facts about Teacup Pomeranian Huskies.

The Teacup Pomeranian Husky, or Pomsky, as they are frequently called, is easily one of the cutest and most popular designer dog breeds. Crossing a dog as small and seemingly fragile as the Pomeranian with the much larger and stronger Siberian Husky may seem like a strange idea, but the result is anything but. Take a look at these interesting facts about everyone’s favorite blue-eyed breed, the Pomeranian Husky.

10 Interesting Facts About Teacup Pomeranians

  1. Breeders Use Artificial Insemination

Pomskies are not a natural breed. Mating Pomeranians with Huskies is not feasible. To overcome this problem, breeders use artificial insemination, a process primarily used with cattle. This process has become increasingly common among breeders.

  1. There is No Standard Appearance

Unlike other breeds, there is no set appearance. The litter may resemble one parent more than the other, and it is virtually impossible to predict which features the litter is going to inherit.

  1. Grooming is a Chore

While you cannot be certain what the litter is going to look like, you can be absolutely sure that they are going to be shedders. You need to brush their coats regularly and might want to invest in a good vacuum cleaner!

  1. They are Stubborn

Siberian huskies are known to be a stubborn breed, and the Pomsky is no different. Most breeders compare the temperament of a Pomsky to a toddler who wants to play outside every so often.

  1. Train Early

Since Pomskies are so stubborn, it can be very hard to train them later on in life. It is best if you start as early as possible. Remember to always be consistent and to never reward negative behaviors.

  1. Train Your Children Too

If you have kids, spend some time teaching them how to treat a puppy before bringing your Pomsky home. When they are threatened or engaged in aggressive play, they tend to bare their teeth. Gentle play is best, especially when your children and the puppy are young.

  1. They Need Exercise

One of the reasons your dog may seem so stubborn is that they have a lot of energy. They need at least a few hours per day of play and exercise. Those with 9-to-5 jobs may want to invest in a dog walker or wake up early to avoid coming home to a torn apart house.

  1. Pomskies Are Not Purebred

Since they are designer dogs, there is a huge misconception that they are purebred. This is not the cease. Purebred dogs only have the genetic makeup of a single breed. Pomskies, being a cross of the two, are technically mutts.

  1. Size is Unpredictable

Just as their appearance is not predicable, their size too can vary. Some can be as small as 15 pounds and others as large as 30.

  1. They Can Be Expensive

Due to the complex breeding process, Pomskies are an expensive breed to buy. It is important to spend the time to find a reputable breeder or to check out shelters in your area.

Pomeranian Huskies are special dogs, beautiful and energetic with a personality of its own. While there are only a few clubs in the world that recognize this amazing breed, this number is sure to change in the future as popularity spreads. If you are looking for a unique, stunning, and playful breed, the Pomsky is perfect for your family.
