Pom Pom is one of the most popular breeds in America. There are many reasons why pom poms have become so popular. One of them is their unique look which makes them very cute and lovable. Another reason is that they are extremely easy to train and do not require much attention from owners at all. They make great companions for children since they tend to love being petted and cuddled by children, but they can also get bored easily if left alone too long. Finally, pom poms are considered to be good with kids and other animals.
The main characteristics of pom poms include their large size (up to 70 pounds) and fluffy fur coat. Their ears are usually pointed and curly, giving them a distinctive appearance. They also have small eyes with black pupils, making them appear somewhat mysterious.
They are known to be loyal and affectionate pets, and they are often used as therapy dogs. However, some owners may find them too energetic for their own good. Some pom poms need a lot of exercise or they might develop health problems like hip dysplasia. Other than these downsides, there are many positive qualities about pom poms such as their loyalty and devotion to their masters.
Pomeranian: pros and cons of the fluffiest breed in town
Pomeranians are adorable fluffy companions that immediately make people smile. They come in a bewildering variety of sizes and colors, from toy poms that can sit in your palm to noble lion harrning poms with a mane.
Here are some pros and cons to help you decide if a pomsky is the right canine companion for you.
1. They are adorable.
2. They come in many sizes.
From the minute teacup poms that can sit on your palm to the slightly larger toy poms, there is a pomsky size for everyone.
3. There are so many color patterns!
Many recognize the traditional pomsky markings of a black mask on their faces with brown, gold or red highlights on their ears and tail. But you can also find pomskies with masks that have blue, pink or even green eyes.
4. They don’t shed much.
5. They are easy to train.
1. Some are prone to health problems, such as “lion butt” and heart disease.
Always research a pomsky breeder before you buy.
2. All that fluff can mean they have a lot of hair that will end up everywhere if you don’t keep up on grooming.
3. Because they are so small, they can be pushed around by other dogs.
This isn’t a problem for most pomskies as their bark is bigger than their bite, but it’s something to be aware of.
4. They like to howl!
If you don’t want to be keeping up at night, pomskies are not the dogs for you.
5. They can have an attitude and will let you know if they don’t like something.
It is best if you train them correctly from the beginning so they know who is boss.
6. They are pretty expensive, with prices ranging from $700 to over $1000.
7. They are generally not good around kids.
It’s best if they are the only pet in the house, so they receive all the attention and don’t get jealous or feel threatened.
Which One Is For You?
As you can see, both pomskies and pomeranians have a lot to offer.
But which one is right for you?
If you want a dog that:
1. Won’t shed much fur.
2. Will be easy to train.
3. Is less expensive than a purebred.
4. You can take with you on the train or bus.
Then a pomsky may be right for you. But if you want a dog that:
1. Has fewer potential health problems and longer life span.
2. Won’t need as much grooming.
3. Has a stronger immune system to withstand the elements better.
4. Is generally good with other dogs and children.
Then a pomeranian may be the dog for you.
