Pomsky Dog For Adoption in DAYTON, VA, USA

Reason we are putting him up for adoption... We got him for a pet for our 1 1/2 year old son, and did not realize how hyper the breed is, and we don't have a very large place, so just decided to put him up for adoption and see if we can't find something a little slower paced!! SORRY HAS FOUND A NEW HOME!

A.K.A. : Siberian Husky Pomeranian Mix
Overview: A Pomsky is a cross between a Pomeranian and a Siberian Husky. A crossing usually consists of a female Husky and a male Pomeranian. This is to avoid any complications that may occur if the smaller Pomeranian were to carry puppies sired by the much larger Siberian Husky male.
Breed Group: Companion
Weight (lbs): 10-25 Lbs
Height (in): 12-24 inches
Colors: variation of white, black and grey, similar to their Husky parent.
Coat: The Pomsky’s coat is soft and fluffy and is prone to a fair amount of shedding; especially if it’s genetic build is primarily that of its Pomeranian father. Because both the Pomeranian and Siberian Husky have a curved tail, the Pomsky also sports one
Character: The Pomsky tends to be good natured and playful, gentle with kids and very lively. They are quick to learn and love to play, and tend to be quiet pups.
Temperament: The Pomsky’s temperament can be varied depending on each parent’s genetic contribution, but they are generally considered to be highly intelligent, loving and playful dogs.
Training: Pomskies are highly intelligent and respond well to reward based training methods. However, they can sometimes inherit the Pomeranian’s stubbornness and should therefore be handled with calm and assertive leadership. Failure to do so can result in “small dog syndrome” and other behavioral problems.
Activity: Pomskies typically require a moderate activity level that can be adaptable to their owner’s lifestyle. They need a short to moderate walk or active playtime each day, like any dog.
Country of Origin: USA
Health Issue: Pomeranians often suffer from dental issues resulting from a buildup of plaque. Pomskies too can suffer from similar dental conditions and should be taken for regular dental checkups.
Life Expectancy: 13-15 Years

More About Pomsky Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
