History of origin
Interspecific hybridization and breeding in dog breeding has been used for a long time. The task of crossing is to obtain new working properties, traits of character or exterior. The resulting offspring combines the features of a pair of parents or several breeds that participated in the process of breeding a new breed.
Pomski was specially taken out as a cute miniature companion. For this, representatives of the Pomeranian Spitz and Siberian Huskies were crossed. Small dogs with characteristic looks Huskies are often confused with other mestizas of this breed - the Alaskan Kli Kai and Siberian mini Huskies.
The first registered information about Pomsky was made on the Internet. One of the users under the nickname Tammy turned to veterinarians on the site Justanswer.com asking about possible breed diseases and the nature of the orange and husky mestizo, which his family planned to take from the shelter. Hot debates about the possibility of the emergence of such a hybrid immediately flared up in the network - after all, the little ones parents vary greatly in size.
Hundreds of photographs of this mythical breed began to appear on the net, but none of them were captured by the Pomski. However, the idea of creating a rare breed inspired breeders, and they began to experiment.
In 2011, the famous breeder Teresa Peterson from Burnsville (North Carolina, USA), specializing in breeding huskies, became interested in the possibility of breeding a new breed, and after 2 years the first litter was obtained. Puppies have been officially registered.
Many breeders followed the example of Peterson, and after a while there was a need for an organization that would supervise their activities. So, in 2013, the American Pomski Club (PCA) was organized, the task of which was to maintain high-level selection and the desire to achieve recognition of the independent breed with its own standard.
So far, the dogs are not recognized by canine societies, and the activity of breeders is supported only by RSA and ASNS - the American club of hybrid dogs.
The appearance of hybrids varies, depending on the dominance of genes of a parent. The instability of the exterior is also due to the fact that two purebred parents are involved in the creation of a fit.
As a rule, for mating choose male Pomeranian Spitz, and the bitch - Husky, to avoid problems with carrying puppies. Hybrid receive artificial insemination. Mixing, the genes of the parents give traits of four breeds, so it is difficult to predict the final result.
For convenience, all the infinite number of variations are breeders divided into 5 groups. The first one is foxish and the dog looks like this:
- elongated body, like a husky;
- thin, characteristic of the spitz bone;
- pointed muzzle;
- erect ears;
- smooth coat of medium length reddish-red color.
The second group - plush husky - dog has:
- compact body of orange;
- has a short face;
- a thick, coiled tail;
- long, soft coat;
- dog color is characteristic of husky.
The third category is white pomski, which is considered an extremely rare species and has the following features of appearance:
- larger than other varieties;
- with smooth, short white wool;
- fine graceful muzzle.
The fourth group - brown blue-eyed pomski - a rare combination of blue eyes of a husky and a brown color. Is different:
- tight body with strong bones;
- muzzle of medium length;
- nasal mirror, pigmented brown;
- wool with a thick undercoat, breech of medium length;
And the short-haired Pomsky belongs to the fifth group - a less popular variety, as it looks like a tiny husky with a short dense coat.
Different sizes of mestizos are also different. They can be small and rather large. To get an idea of the size of an adult hybrid, you need to divide the sum of the height at the withers of the puppy's parents in half.
The weight is 5-10 kg, the height at the withers is 30-40 cm. The size depends on the sex of the puppy, the dominant complex of the genes of one of the parents. In the first litter, puppy sizes can be predicted, since parents are purebred representatives of the breeds. In the second litter, the variability is higher, since F1 (the first litter) is involved in the binding.
Eyes can also have a different color:
- yellow brown;
- nut green;
Heterochromia is encountered, in which the color of the iris of the right and left eyes is different, which is often the case in husky. In the case of a partial anomaly of the iris, specks of a different color are “scattered” over the main color background.
It takes some time for the eyes to get the final color. Therefore, in the nurseries and make up the waiting list. The buyer receives photos or videos of puppies available to select the desired eye color.
Varied coloring pomski. The most common color, characteristic for the husky with a mask on the face. The trunk has:
- black and white;
- gray silver;
- pale yellow;
- white color
It is found both tan and solid color. Less often - marble.
Since Pomski does not have well-established signs, and the breed line is in the process of becoming, there are no fixed character traits. A puppy can inherit both the character of the mother and the personality traits of the father.
The energetic, independent, cautious, independent nature of the Husky or dominant, snooty, noisy, but affectionate and loyal nature of the Pomeranian Spitz - it is not known in advance which of them will prevail. But what exactly do not have a point is aggression. The dog is an excellent companion, ready to constantly be near the owner. Pomski boldly rushes to the defense of the owner, forgetting about his "modest" size.
Dogs with the same probability can inherit both positive and negative character traits - a tendency to runaways, a passion for spoiling things, "talkativeness."
Pomski gets on well with children and pets, especially growing in their surroundings. He has a cheerful and sociable temper, even a loud dog barking - the desire to draw the attention of the owner to himself or the situation, and not a sign of aggressiveness.
The dog adopted devotion and love for the owner from the spitz, but, unlike pomeranets, the desire to constantly be around is not so strong. Therefore, Pomski is an ideal companion for both families with children and lonely people who need to show love and affection.
Pomski well respond to training, as they have the intelligence and ingenuity. But there are also stubborn people who inherit the independent nature of the Huskies. Pozski capable of non-standard solutions, which complicates the training. In order for the dog to accurately and obediently execute commands, patience and a benevolent attitude are necessary. Rudeness can spoil the character of the dog - it will become irritable and withdrawn.
Pomski is a little psychologist. He feels the emotional state of the owner and, with the characteristic doggy ingenuity, acts in accordance with it. Therefore, it is impossible to shout at a dog, especially to raise a hand. Although the nervous system is quite stable, it can be offended, become stubborn and uncontrollable.
If the animal is difficult to educate, then you should contact a professional. With a benevolent and persistent upbringing, you can wean the heels off constantly barking, and respond with your voice as needed or required.
Care and health
Pozskie not particularly demanding care. Their thick soft coat has natural protection against dirt and wetting, so the animal does not need frequent bathing. It is necessary to wash pomsky more than once a month, using a special shampoo according to the length of the coat. You can entrust this process to employees of the grooming salon.
In addition to compulsory care for the ears, eyes and teeth of a pet, he needs care for wool. Combing should be done regularly, 2-3 times a week, and during seasonal molting - daily. Particular attention should be paid to the areas around the muzzle and behind the ears, since there long hair is prone to the formation of tangles. Claws need to be trimmed once every 2-3 weeks - as they grow.
Mixed breeds are quite healthy dogs, as they rarely inherit pedigree diseases characteristic of purebred parents. This phenomenon is due to the effect of heterosis or "hybrid power."
Breeders note that the formation of tartar is characteristic of Pomski, therefore, it is necessary to monitor the health of the pet's mouth and clean its teeth regularly. In addition, Pomski has a predisposition to allergies, and older dogs are quite possible eye disease.
Pinski is not a “super dog”, so it can get sick, but diseases are usually caused by improper care or maintenance. The dog needs routine vaccinations, deworming, treatment for external parasites and periodic veterinary inspection. On average, pomski live from 13 to 15 years.
They are active dogs, so they need a full, balanced, energy-rich diet. This can be achieved both with the help of natural food and with the corresponding ready-made feeds.
With natural nutrition from the diet should be excluded:
- sweets and baking;
- raw meat or fish.
In the diet of Pomski should be foods rich in vitamins and trace elements. The calorie content of food should be medium, which is regulated by the amount of carbohydrates. With natural feeding, it is imperative to take vitamin-mineral complexes that supplement the daily need for minerals.
Dry feeds facilitate the feeding of pets and do not require additional injections of vitamins. The only thing that when feeding with dry food an animal should have a sufficient amount of fresh water.
Ready-made rations are recommended to purchase from the category of premium and super premium class. When feeding "drying" you can diversify the menu with wet canned food with different tastes, but it is desirable to purchase the same brand of wet and dry food.
The small size of the decorative dogs allow them to feel comfortable even in a small city apartment. Dogs easily adapt to the new environment. The dog should have an equipped sleeping place, toys, a place for eating.
These dogs are not adapted to life on the street, and the owner will hardly keep a rare, expensive dog out of the house. It will be quite enough for a dog on condition of regular and long walking.
It’s necessary to go for a walk with at least 40-60 minutes, having provided the dog with active games. In good weather, you need to go for a walk 2-3 times a day, and in bad you can learn new commands at home with your dog. In addition to the mandatory walks and games in the fresh air, with a dog you need to engage in training, training or intellectual development.
