Pomsky is a designer dog. It is a cross between the Pomeranian and the Husky.
Pomskies are extremely intelligent and eager to please. They are fast learners and can be trained to do just about anything if you take the time to teach them. They do have high energy levels but are small enough to get the necessary exercise playing in a decent sized yard or going for a daily walk. Pomskies tend to imprint on their families much like huskies. They will also howl on occasion like huskies do. They are very confident and outgoing with everyone they meet. They love children. 1st generation pomskies have coats similar to a husky. They are medium to low shedders and they blow their coats in the summer. With regular brushing shedding should not be an issue.
