How much do your pomskies cost?
This really depends on the size and quality of a pomsky. A pomsky with blue eyes and husky markings will typically be in the 3000 dollar range since this is what everyone wants. If the puppies have wooly coats or are very small and the pups are expected to be smaller they can be more. If you come across someone selling pomskies for much less than 2000 it is likely a scam. There are a lot of people selling huskies and other mixes as pomskies which is why we demand dna proof that our breeders are producing true pomskies before we even allow them to join the PCA.
Do you know of any breeders closer to me?
You can check our approved breeders page every so often for new breeders. I will not refer you to any breeders not listed on this site. I have heard of all kinds of pomsky scams and would advise you to be very cautious. There are not a lot of people having any success breeding these guys and even fewre that are doing it right so you will more than likely have to have a puppy shipped to you and will need to be patient if you really want a quality pomsky. Just remember that if it sounds too good to be true it's probably a scam.
How big will my pomsky get?
We cannot guarantee size. With pomskies there is always a chance of a throwback so we can have pups well under or over the expected weight range but from what we have seen you can expect a 50/50 to be about 15-25lbs and a 25/75 to be about 10-15lbs. As we continue to perfect our lines we are seeing more and more pups that end up much smaller than this though.
What is the difference between a 50/50 and a 25/75?
A 50/50 is half husky, half pomeranian. When you breed a female 50/50 to a pomeranian stud it will cut the husky percentage in half and give you puppies that are 25% husky and 75% pomeranian. These are ideal for people wanting a smaller dog than your typical pomsky.
Do pomskies have any health problems?
So far we have not seen any health problems but this is a brand new hybrid and we still have a lot to learn. We do a 2 year health guarantee and ask for an update every 6 months for this 2 year period for all of our puppies so that if health issues do arise we will know about them and they can be addressed.
Do pomskies shed?
Pomsky coats are typically somewhere between a husky coat and a pomeranian coat. They are soft and fluffy but have a silky quality that most pom coats lack. Most the dead hairs will sit in the coat until you brush them out so shedding is not a big issue with regular brushing. They do blow coat in the Summer and for about a month they will shed like crazy, but again, this can be controlled with more frequent brushing. A pomsky with a shorter coat will shed more frequently but less volume. Pomsky coats vary quite a bit. I recommend consulting with the breeder you choose about your particular puppy if this is a concern.
What are temperaments of pomskies like?
Pomsky personalities will vary but they all have some pom traits and some husky traits. They are very smart and easy to train. They typically will howl like huskies but only on occasion. They are much more focused on their human family and less independent than your typical husky but do not always have to be underfoot like your typical pomeranian. They can be escpape artists like huskies but do not wander to the same degree. You will want to be sure your yard is secure but fortunately they cannot jump high fences like huskies due to their small size. They are very active but can get a good workout in a decent sized yard. They make great running buddies. I can't wear out my huskies by my pomskies keep great pace with me. They are GREAT with kids. All the love and playfulness of a husky without the weigh to knock the little ones off their feet (:
How do you breed a husky with a pomeranian?
All breedings are done with a husky female and a pomeranian male. We do not do natural breedings as they would be ineffcetive and dangerous. Artificial inseminations are the safest for all involved and are much more comfortable for the female than a natural tie with a husky would be.
Is it true that breeding blue eyed pomskies is dangerous?
This is completely false. Huskies have had predominantly blue eyes for a very long time and while some huskies do have eye issues, as with many breeds, studies have shown that blue eyed huskies are no more likely to have issues than brown eyed huskies. We have also seen it stated that we are using merles to get blue eyes and the merle gene can be dangerous. If merles were being used it would be obvious because half the pups would have merle markings. To date only one merle was ever used in any of the PCA breeder lines and it was never ever crossed with another merle which is where this becomes dangerous. Furthermore, using merles for blue eyes does not make any sense since merle dogs have brown eyes genetically whether they appear blue from the bleaching action of the merle gene or not so only the pups that were actually merle would be more likely to have blue eyes and most people do not want merle pomskies, they want pomskies that are marked like a husky. Husky blue eyes have been shown to be partially dominant time and time again when huskies were crossed with other breeds. Getting blue eyed pomskies is just a matter of choosing the right stud that will allow these traits to come through in the puppies.
