How big are Pomskies when they are full grown?

This is perhaps the singular most often asked question asked by those curious about Pomskies.  We have all seen the adorable pictures of these cute little creatures scattered across the internet.  And more often than not it is pictures of the cute little puppies that capture our attention, because quite frankly they are so darn cute and we get to do things like this to our dogs.

Those cute little fur balls do grow up and may become quite bigger than some of our readers might have first expected.  There is a lot of misinformation out there with some unsavory characters looking to score a fast buck suggesting that Pomsky puppies will reach a size and weight comparable to some of the “tea cup” breeds that many people tend to gravitate towards. After all, pictures of cute little puppies sale especially when you think that that little puppy is going to stay just the way he is for his entire life.

If you are looking for pomsky puppies for sale, here is our directory of pomsky breeders.

The actual size of a Pomsky at maturation depends on the size and genetics of its parents.  The general rule, and remember that this is a new breed so there can be some variances, is that a Pomsky puppy will grow to be approximately half the weight of the total weight of his parents.  Simply add the weight of the two parents and divide it in half and that is a fair expectation.

Generally speaking, when cross-breeding dogs you want to make sure that the female is the larger of the two breeds.  In the case of the Pomsky designer breed, a female Pomeranian would most likely die from a pregnancy should she fail to receive a c-section (caution: some pictures may be too graphic for young readers).  And considerable harm, including death through suffocation, can occur to the puppies inside the mother’s womb.

The average size of a female Siberian husky is 35-50 pounds.  Pomeranians can range from three to seven pounds.  Thus, we can figure with a fairly high degree of confidence that a Pomsky will reach 19-29 pounds at maturity.  Again, there will be some variance and outliers along the continuum.  Remember to note that this is based on a purebred husky mating with a purebred Pomeranian.

The height of Siberian huskies is measured from the floor or ground to the top of their shoulder blades where the neck meets the spine. This is called the withers.  Female huskies generally fall within the range of 20-22 inches in height. A Pomeranian will range from 7-12 inches in height.  Pomskies can grow to be 10-15 inches tall.

I know what some of you may be thinking.  Let’s find the smallest husky female and the smallest Pomeranian male and make that super duper cute puppy!  It doesn’t quite work that way.

Sure, ideally the smaller the parents the smaller the Pomsky will be as an adult.  However, it is important that one doesn’t sacrifice the health and well being of the parent in order to produce a smaller Pomsky puppy.  Parents at the lower weight distribution levels may have bone density and strength concerns along with other health issues that will make them less attractive and less than ideal choices for breeding.

Under no circumstances should pomsky breeders intentionally try to produce smaller puppies through a variety of appalling tactics.  As a potential buyer of a Pomsky puppy and hopefully an animal lover, you have an obligation to ensure that the breeder you choose is ethical, reputable and not in the business solely to make a buck.  When looking at pomsky puppies for sale, it is important that you investigate the care of these animals by the breeder.

As breeders learn more about this breed and how puppy growth and development occurs under various circumstances, it is quite possible that the size of Pomskies will be reduced.  Obviously, through trial and error, breeders are going to learn how to emphasize the desired traits and characteristics and minimize the less desirable ones.

    I think your full of shit.
    You spell out the bad of people who breed puppies from home. Yes there are bad people out there. But just because the breeder or seller is a company or a vet does not mean that the animals are not being treated poorly. I breed boxers only and I have three acres for them to run. I see animals in cages and chained up in your kind of puppie mill. Mine are always free. always allowed to be ANIMAL. What you all do is drive the cost up behind a self righteous care giving when in fact all these animals should be more then half the cost. Its a business for anyone willing to do it. So don’t act as if you are doing the right thing. Your breeding or selling God’ free animals for your wallet…PERIOD.

      Dude! What’s your problem?! Where did the writer “spell out the bad of people who breed puppies from home”? Nowhere did I read where the writer said anything negative–or anything at all–regarding if “the breeder or seller is a company or a vet”! Not on THIS page! So if what you read wasn’t on this page, then you should have had enough intelligence to post on the CORRECT page! How do you know what kind of set-up this writer has? From THIS website, you have determined it’s a puppy mill? I see NOTHING on this page about this writer’s setup. You are “a self righteous care giving”? LOL And let me point out that YOU are not breeding to GIVE AWAY puppies. You are out for a buck too! I think you better look up the definition of “self-righteous” before you attempt to call yourself that. Also, you might want to refer to yourself as a “caregiver”, instead of a “care giving”. haha But my favorite of all is this whole sentence that you need to read out loud to yourself. Then maybe you will realize how that sentence is so flawed: “But just because the breeder or seller is a company or a vet does not mean that the animals are not being treated poorly.” Uhhh, “does not” & “not” in the same sentence is a double negative, which means you are saying that animals from vets & companies ARE treated poorly! But my favorite by far is the third word of your rant–”your”. I hate to break it to you, but YOU’RE full of shit!!! rofl I suggest you take some time off from your puppy mill & work on getting your GED!!!! And before you even bother thinking it, no, I am NOT in any way connected to anyone who has anything to do with this website. This came to me through a Google search to prove to someone that Pomskies are NOT the size & weight of Pomeranians! Kthanksbye! :)

      I agree with you, my family has bought dogs from private places and they all were happy dogs and lasted 14-17 years, any time we ever bought an animal from Petsmart they died within a week or 2.

      the other part of that is that when I would go into those pet shops at the malls, dogs would be I there with eye infections, the last time I was in one of them, one of the dogs was having a seizure in the cage and when I told the store manager, he just put a curtain over the kennel. I said “what the fuck?” and left to call ASPCA.

  2. I have a pomsky. However, i think you are wrong about how pomskies are made. Fozzie’s dad is a Klee-Kai- a 15 pound miniture alaskan husky NOT a 35 pound husky. Fozzie’s mom is an all-black 12 pound pom. Fozzie has shortish hair, never, ever sheds (like a pom) stands tall, is more angular than his mom, but less so than his dad. Fozzie runs A LOT, is attached to me at home but a great runner in the park. Everybody thinks he’s gorgeous.

      A pomsky wouldn’t be a pomsky if the dad is a Klee-Kai. That doesn’t make any sense. Are you telling me you paid several thousand for a Pomsky (Pom & Husky) but instead got one that is part Klee Kai?
