Also known as pomsky, it combines the genetic heritage of the Pomeranian breed and the Siberian Husky breed. It is very easy to fall in love this playful, fluffy, and intelligent breed that has the temperamental and physical nature of both these breeds. It is a small dog and has resemblance either of the two breeds. It is tough to categorize the personality traits of these hybrid dogs as they do not have similar characteristics. However, these traits are naturally determined by the parents of these pups. Regardless, these puppies are very friendly and playful as both parents typically have this trait.
