Some breeders will also tack on a surcharge to those wishing to have the first pick of a litter. Similar to how a home builder will charge a lot premium to lots in a tract development that are larger, have better views or possess other desirable characteristics, breeders realize that the random appearances of Pomskies in a litter create a scenario where some eager buyers are willing to pay extra to ensure they get the dog they want.
In addition to these costs and due to the limited number of breeders, it is very likely that a prospective owner will need to factor in the costs associated with transporting the puppy. Some breeders will arrange the transportation of the puppy to its new owner and this is going to cost around $250-500. Some breeders may require the owners to pick up the puppy to ensure that it reaches its new owner(s) safely and in good health. Depending on the distance and the amount of time necessary to make a round-trip, these costs factoring in gas, wear and tear on the vehicle, lodging, eating meals out and time off from work can easily add another $1,000 or more to the cost of a Pomsky puppy.
These costs do not include the expense of preparing a home for a puppy, purchasing pet supplies and food, or include the veterinarian bills that will arise from shots and other ongoing medical treatment. Needless to say, it is quite possible for the cost of a new Pomsky puppy to surpass $4,000 with a general baseline expected range to be from $2,200 to $3,200.
Considering the infancy of this breed and the lack of detailed documentation concerning any health issues, how well the age and longevity, this price point may give many prospective owners pause.
