Q: When is your next litter expected? Is there a wait list?
A: We do not expect to have any more Pomsky litters. Teshka’s third litter was born Jan. ’18.
Q: Where are you located?
A: Port Orange, FL, just south of Daytona Beach not far from I-95 and I-4
Q: How big do Pomsky puppies get?
A: We’re just on Teshka and lil Rascal’s first Pomsky litter (born Jan. 2018) — but we know from our first two litters with stud ‘Johnny Angel’ (2015 and 2016) that the full grown range is 11 lbs – 28 lbs.
We expect the majority of Tess’ Pomsky puppies to reach roughly half her size (she is a lean 50 lbs.), with ultimate weight range in the 20 lbs. – 30 lbs. vicinity –> smaller than a Siberian Husky, but certainly NOT a ‘toy’ sized companion. A female Siberian Husky is approximately 20-22 inches tall. A male Pomeranian is usually going to fall in the 7-12 inches tall range. As such, Pomskies will ‘generally’ grow to be anywhere from 10-15 inches in height. You can find photos of 50/50 our adult litters on our facebook page — and general Pomskies at http://www.pomskyclubofamerica.org/
Q: What color eyes will the puppies have?
A: Of our three litters (15 pups), we’ve had about a third all blue eyes, a third brown eyes, and a third were one or two bi-color eyes.
Once open, initial eye color, (which is often gray) may change over time. Siberian Huskies are usually born with blue eyes, and their eyes can and will change color until they are at least 5 – 6 weeks old. Pomsky puppies with bright blue eyes at adoption time will likely remain blue.
Q: Are your puppies ‘certified’ or ‘register-able’?
A: The Pomsky breed is not yet recognized by AKC or CKC. We will provide a health record and shots record (8-week shots) for our puppies. We will also provide the AKC Pedigree for both sire and dam on request.
Q: What do you feed your puppies?
A: Puppy food is from Blue Buffalo: http://bluebuffalo.com/for-dogs/lifestage/puppy-food/
Q: Do you ship puppies?
A: Because of safety issues involved, we prefer to not ship any puppies. We had adopting parents from out of state with the first litter drive to Florida to pick up their puppies (Florida’s a nice place to visit; if you’re not from the area, perhaps make a fun trip out puppy pick up)
Q: Can we visit the puppies?
A: Yes, certainly once the litter is 4-5 weeks of age we’ll allow visitors to come and see the puppies (we try to limit exposure to humans before 4 weeks of age to allow immune systems to build). We had several folks visit the first litter in person, though most were adopted by that time.
Please note, it is possible that the puppies will all be adopted prior to them being of visiting age, as all 5 from the first litter were claimed solely based on their online photos, within 4 weeks of their being born.
We also used live video (Skype/Facebook) to allow prospective parents to see the puppies prior to them being of visiting age.
Q: Why breed dogs when their our many unwanted pets in local shelters and humane societies?
A: We’re very aware of the tragedy of unwanted dogs and cats in the U.S. We want to help via support of spay and neuter related campaigns to reduce the incidents of animal abandonment, abuse and neglect. We contribute to our local human society annually — you can help too by visiting: https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/HalifaxHumaneSocietyofDaytona/OnlineDonation.html or here: https://www.aspca.org/secure/donate?ms=wb_top_donate&initialms=wb_top_donate&pcode=WEBMEMBER&lpcode=WEBGUARD
It is our belief that rescues are not the right answer for every pet owner. It is our belief that the Pomsky breed represents an opportunity for the betterment of two wonderful breeds, which in turn will benefit pet owners.
We do vet our owners carefully; our intent is to ensure all go to loving homes who share similar concerns about the well being of all animals and the furthering of this new breed.
