What is a Pomsky?

What’s the difference between 50/50 and 25/75 Pomskies?
50/50 Pomskies mean that the dog is half Pomeranian half Husky, and 25/75 usually mean the dog is 25% Husky and 75% Pomeranian.
Why do Pomskies cost so much?
Many people wonder why this designer breed costs so much money, however what many people don’t know is how difficult it is to produce a Pomsky and how much work and research is involved. Breeding a Pomeranian Husky naturally is ineffective and dangerous to the dogs which means breeding is done through artificial insemination which requires a vet; keep in mind before getting to the breeding stage all breeders need to conduct their own research and also obtain high quality Pomeranian’s and Huskies which is costly. Additionally once the puppies are born many veterinarian fees are required such as shots, deworming, and most breeders provide DNA test results to assure customers they are getting a true Pomsky which is another cost that most breeders wouldn’t face with other breeds. Lastly there is a high demand for Pomeranian Huskies, but the supply isn’t very large therefore it only makes sense that this breed will cost more compared to other purebred dogs such as Siberian Huskies. To sum it up Pomskies cost a lot because the breeding process is difficult and requires plenty of time and research.
